Photo Dump! – Edmonton Boudoir Makeup Artist

Whoa I’m so behind in posting pictures of my work on here.  Some of these photos go way back before the new year too.  Oops~!  Better late than never though right!?  🙂

This month has been quite busy with boudoir styling.  I love love love doing boudoir makeup & hair.  More so than anything else.  (wedding makeup comes a close second.)  With boudoir photo styling, I get to do my favorite smokey-eye all the time.  LOL  What can I say, I love my smokey eye + false lashes!  Using makeup to make a woman look and feel sexy and sensual is what I’m here to do.  And to have it all captured with photos is just an added bonus.  Having boudoir photos done is an unforgettable experience, especially 25+ years from now they’ll be proof that ‘hey check out how HOT I was!!!’  🙂

All makeup & hair by me.

I always have good conversations with my clients.  I love getting to know them and hearing about their lives, experiences, travels, etc.  Even if it’s only within that hour to hour and a half that we have together.  Most of the time we get along so well that I take longer than usual to do my job.  Oops!  We can’t help it!  Lots of laughter to go around.  I love positive, open people who have that happy aura around them.  Good people with good vibes =)  When my personality and theirs just mesh so well that our conversations about anything n everything is so always too much fun!

Hair & Makeup by Me

Pretty and fresh makeup is what I usually like to do for my younger clients.  (11-15 yrs old)  A young lady’s skin is usually flawlessss so sometimes just concealer and powder will do wonders.  Other times if I have to even out the skintone, I will use a light weight/ light coverage foundation to do that.  A bright pink blush always brightens up a pretty face.

For eye makeup I like to go less heavy, less dramatic.  Groomed eyebrows are really important to frame the eyes since I usually go light on the eyes.  False eyelashes are rarely used.  (depends)  A wash of neutral eyeshadow on the lids and eyeliner only for the top, for the bottom liner I just smudge some eyeshadow there and then coat top and bottom lashes with 2 coats of mascara!

Then for the lips, Pink/coral lipstick with lots of lipgloss keeps the look young and fresh and pretty.  What every young girl should be!  Kinda like you’re wearing makeup but not you know?!  🙂

It’s Wedding/Grad Season!

Image

I didn’t have a fancy grad or anything.  I didn’t get to dress up or get my hair/makeup done.  Heck I went to grad dinner with my sister in law!  She was my date heheh  I don’t regret not going to grad or anything.  I just regret not being able to pick out a fancy grad dress, going to the leg (as in legislature- not leg/arm lol) and not getting my hair & makeup done all fancy for all the photo ops.  Cuz you know everyone and their mommas r busy snapping away from every direction possible!  The last thing you need is your worst enemy/rival at school having pictures of you looking not so cute.  hahaha

Ahhh wedding season.  The day most girls dream about since they can remember.  I’m not married yet but I know for sure I’ll look super gorgeous for when that happens lol.  I’m thinking super sexy super smokey eyes with bronzed skin, (since mine will be a beach wedding lol) contoured cheekbones, and a light shimmery pale pink almost nude lip.  Yes.  I’ve already planned my wedding makeup to go with my imaginary Cuba wedding.  🙂  I don’t know when it’s happening but it’s happening.  In the meantime, let me help you with yours! 😀

Now booking for every and any occasion.

Heck, for a girls night out or stagette, wow all your friends with a super sexy you!  But um make sure you don’t outshine the bride-to-be too much. (unless her makeup is done by me too of course)  muahahaha lol  JK!

It helps when clients show me pictures of what makeup looks they like.  It shows me what colors you’re into, the ‘look’ you’re going for, the amount of makeup you are comfortable with, etc. But just know you are not Kim Kardashian or Rhianna therefore you are not going to look exactly like them. 🙂

You should look like yourself, just the more beautiful, enhanced version of your everyday self!  Cuz the most beautiful women are the ones that love themselves!  🙂

I’m famous!?

I love behind the scene shots.  It shows exactly what happens during a photo shoot; not everything is easy and simple as it looks. There’s a lot of hard work that goes into it and I love being a part of it!

I love doing makeup for boudoir photo shoots.  Something very sexy and empowering to see a woman comfortable in her own skin and having an amazing photographer like Chris capture that!  I think every woman should do a boudoir/beauty shoot at least once in their life!
