Every to glam boudoir makeup by Black Lace Boudoir

Are you thinking, “should I get my makeup professionally done for a boudoir photoshoot?” We say YES! Boudoir photography can be a fun and exciting experience. It’s an opportunity for you to show off your best assets and let loose in front of the camera. What’s even better is when you have the full treatment—from hair, makeup, and wardrobe—it will make your photoshoot shine.

Having a makeup artist on hand for Boudoir photography is crucial because they know how to enhance your natural features while still being able to achieve that glam look! 

Plus, having that extra attention given to your beauty routine removes some stress from planning out every detail of your photoshoot while also allowing you time off from worrying about DIY. 

Today, we’re sharing our top 6 reasons getting professional makeup done for your boudoir session is worth it!

Why is makeup an important part of your boudoir photography session?

Just like how you choose special outfits for your boudoir photoshoot, makeup should also receive the same consideration. Makeup is a tool to enhance your natural beauty and bring out your best features.

We’re not saying you HAVE to go with the bold smokey eye or the bright red lipstick (of course, these are always great glam looks), you can stick to more natural-looking makeup, but getting professional makeup done by a professional makeup artist is just one way to make the day way less stressful, and way more fun!

At Black Lace Boudoir,  makeup is included in your boudoir session – take advantage of it!

First off – it’s important to note that professional makeup is included in all our boudoir photography sessions! You won’t have to worry about bringing your makeup, and you can relax knowing that everything will be taken care of by our professional makeup artist.

It’s often best not to do your own makeup because a talented professional makeup artist will know what will look best on YOU! Plus, the lighting in a studio can cause colors to appear different than when applied at home or in natural light. So don’t stress about doing your makeup—we’ve got it covered for you!

Additionally, our team will work with you to ensure you are happy with how your makeup looks. This helps ensure you feel beautiful and confident during your photo shoot experience. 

Our boudoir makeup artists take lighting, mood, and theme all into account.

Makeup for your boudoir session is so much more than just dolling you up. Our artist takes lighting, mood, theme, and weather into account and will create an effortless look that translates beautifully on camera. They use special techniques to ensure your eyes pop, your lips stand out, and your face captures the light in all the right places. 

Each of our makeup artists has been hand-selected for their talent, creativity, and passion for what they do. They will spend time getting to know you and what you like and create a look that is authentic to you. Whether that’s smokey, mysterious, sensual, or a down-to-earth, natural look.

Our makeup services include techniques such as false lashes, contouring & highlighting, and hair styling. We have an amazing team of talented artists who love what they do and always put their client’s needs first before anything else!

Professional makeup artists are skilled experts.

Professional makeup artists are skilled experts who know how to use light, shadow, and color to enhance the natural beauty of your face. They can help you look your best in photographs by highlighting the right features, ensuring that those features are framed properly, and adding soft contours where needed. They will also make sure that they apply the right amount of blush or highlight so that it looks natural and not overdone.

Makeup artists know how to create a certain mood to match your boudoir theme; for example, if you’re going for a bold look our make-up artist will create a beautiful smokey eye, dark lip color, or bright red lipstick. For a more hollywood glam-esque look they’ll use beautiful gold shimmer, highlighter, contour, and shading.

Sometimes makeup artists will even change their style depending on what photo setup we’re doing, so no matter what kind of look you want from your session—whether it be fierce or sweet—I promise there’s someone out there who can help make it happen!

Being pampered means you don’t have to stress over the DIY makeup

There’s nothing worse than feeling stressed before a big day! The same goes for your boudoir photoshoot. The last thing we want you to feel is stressed out. On the contrary, we want you to feel pampered, energized, confident, and oh-so-glamorous! 

Our boudoir photoshoots aren’t just a photoshoot. They are an experience. We carefully crafted the process to be a luxurious one where you feel like the badass queen you are! As such, we recommend leaving the DIY makeup behind and enjoying the professional makeup that’s included in your luxury boudoir experience. Get pampered, enjoy the VIP treatment, and feel like a million bucks for your photoshoot with professional makeup that accentuates all your nature and beauty!

Professional boudoir makeup can serve as a confidence booster

Professional boudoir makeup can serve as a confidence booster, helping you to feel your best on the day of your photo shoot. 

If you’re getting ready in front of the mirror, it’s easy to notice any little imperfections or things that could be done better. But when someone else is doing it for you, there’s no room for self-criticism—you can relax and let them do their thing while relaxing and feeling confident that everything looks great!
