I just booked to have my make-up done at Nordstrom's before my BD shoot. Girls that have already done your shoots, did you have heavier make-up than you were used to, so it shows up nicely in the pics? Or do you just do it how you normally would? I don't want to look like a tramp, but also want to convey the sexy "pin-up" girl look. What do you all suggest?

I always encourage my clients to consider professional makeup for a shoot like this: your photographer should have a list of MUA's to whom they refer.

 

Failing this, consider using slightly more makeup than you are used to, and avoid mineral-based foundations like Bare Minerals. Doing a test application and having a friend with a decent camera take some pictures can ensure that the shades of makeup will work well with your skin tones on camera.

 

Hope this helps!

My thought is that it is all about the eyes in Boudoir photography. I usually like it best when the Makeup artist does a really fresh face/natural look and then a little heavier than normal liner and shadow. This really makes the eyes pop, as I'm sure you know. If the makeup is as light as normal it will disappear under lights through a camera.

I told my girl I wanted to be GLAM! She was so excited bc usually people want to look "natural" so she rarely gets to play with the fun, glam look.

This is a good question. I've also heard that there are different brands of make-up that look better in pictures? Does anyone know anything about this? Did anyone use a different make-up line for the BD or Wedding Day?

 

I assume the MUA at Nordstrom would know. Are you going to a particular make-up counter?

 

Good luck! I hope you have a blast!

When I did my session, my make up was heavier. It turned out really nice in the pics. I'm waiting for my CD but I can send some pics if you want to se once I received it.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
