My oh my, when was my last blog? I haven’t blogged in ages. Before I left to Vietnam I managed to get a few hair and makeup gigs in. Yet I decided to not broadcast anything until I come back. Boy do I have some juicy details to blog about!
Doing hair and makeup for models for fashion shows/runways is completely different then a boudoir shoot! For runways/fashion show, the models are caked with extreme makeup and their hair is over the top. It is fun and loud! However, I fallen in love with boudoir shoots!
The models normally request a natural I-just-rolled-out-of-bed-look. One who is interested in boudoir normally feels confident with her natural beauty and do not rely on makeup to make her feel sexy. She knows how to rock it without it!
As a hair and makeup artist my goal is to enhance my client’s beauty. I also want to build and maintain a connection with them. By working on a boudoir shoot I get all 3. My model has to trust me + photographer. Each session is so simple yet so darn sexy.
For those of you who are wondering why anyone would consider a bodouir shoot. I, myself did one! =P I was hesitant at first because I do not have the perfect body, nor in anyway in shape. However, I gave it a shot and felt sexy! On top of that, Melissa Diep made me feel so comfortable and she honestly captured my beauty. What do you think? Sexy, but keeping it classy is what I want each boudoir shoot to be.
A person who requests a boudoir shoot normally does not want her images being exposed and I/photographer respect her wishes.
Consider a boudoir session next time if you want to give your boyfriend, husband, or YOU something sexy. Somewhere deep down inside of every woman, there’s a vixen just waiting to get out!
Although I cannot post any pictures of my previous boudoir session with my clients, I would like to share some behind the scene images!
Pictures were taken at the James Hotel
