Boudoir shoot hair and makeup?

Recommended Posts

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 wink.gif! 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.

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.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
