In June of 2012 I had the absolute pleasure of providing fab hair & makeup the Sexy Ms. M in preparation for her upcoming nuptials. I must admit boudoir hair & makeup has to be one of my favorite things to do and since Boudoir sessions has made it to The Knots checklist ladies everywhere are stocking up on the lingerie and booking intimate sessions for the soon to be Mr.
For Ms M I gave her a soft smokey look which played on different tones of pinks and greys. I mainly used shadows with very little shimmer because this look overall gave a very classic feel. Of course wispy lashes were added for all types of drama and gel liner was winged out for an even more dramatic effect.
As with any boudoir shoot it’s best to keep the skin nice and natural, not too much shimmer is needed as it doesn’t photograph well. I used Makeup Forever’s HD primer and foundation in two different shades to add dimension and give flawless coverage on Ms. M’s skin. An under eye brightener was exactly what was needed to give that ‘wide eye’ effect. The makeup was set with Avon’s Ideal Shade translucent powder to ensure that it has an airbrushed finish.
Last but definitely not least the lips were given a pop of color by bringing in a mid-toned pink shade that compliments Ms M’s complexion. My approach to brighter lipstick is pretty much the same as it is red lipstick, a lip liner in a similar shade is a must. I lined her lips with NYX lip-liner in and then with over with Avon’s Lipstick in Pout, and topped everything off with NYX lip gloss just in the middle to give the lips a fuller effect.
