    So, I had a boudoir shoot scheduled for a few weeks ago, and I had to cancel it! Luckily, my photographer was nice enough to reschedule for me. However, she only has a couple mini-shoots left and they are both early (9:30) am.

    I wanted to get my hair and makeup professionally done, but I am not sure where I can get it done that early! I was just wondering if any of you did your own hair/makeup. I am sure it would be ok, but I really want my photos to pop!

    Thanks girls!

      Maybe you could go to a MAC makeup store and talk to one of the makeup consultants, they all do freelance work and maybe one could come to the shoot and do your makeup before hand. Or even come to your house. And I think you could totally do your hair on your own. I just know my makeup artist did my makeup really dramatic so it would show up well in the photos. And when I got the photos back it looked really good, not at all like the hooker I felt like when she put it on ! So I would say if anything see if you can at least get a makeup artist there.

        Good idea!! I think the makeup is really the most important part. I normally wear my hair straight anyway, so maybe I will just go with my normal look. I even put an ad out on Craig's List, which may be kind of sketchy...but you never know! Maybe I will find someone good! :)

          I agree with Jessica, if you go to a professional and tell them you want dramatic eyes that show up really well in photos, they will apply it a little darker and should look great. I'd ask your photographer if they work along side someone that they can recommend, most boudoir photographers will have contact information on people they have worked with for those shoots before.

            OK, I found early appointments at a salon nearby... 8 am!! I need to be out by 9. So, at least that is one less thing I need to worry about!

              im sure there is salon that opens early or could you go for a make up trial at a store or is there a local lady who travels to your home?if you do your own it will be fine i would just put more eye shadow,mascara and blusher on than you normally would.

                I would ask your photographer. Mine recommended a makeup artist and she is going to meet me there before my shoot.
