We all are amazed at before and after shots – but in truth anyone can look this good. How? Well the secret is professional make up, creative lighting, clever posing and a little bit of airbrushing magic. The before shots – in all honesty – haven’t had anything like that done to them! At this point – can I just say a huge thank you to the clients who have agreed to let me use these photos !
I thought I would ask my make up artist – Katie – for her reasons why we include a makeover in our Boudoir Experience package:
“When you choose to have professional photographs taken, the styling is such an important part of that creative process. As the make-up artist I share the vision of the photographer and complete this styling process for your session. I am able to apply the correct level and depth of make-up for the shoot. The make-up you are usually happy with for daywear (or evening wear for that matter) may not translate to a photo studio. The make-up I apply and techniques used are specific to that individual shoot, taking the client, lighting, mood, desired look into consideration. As the artist I will work ‘with’ you to create a bespoke make-over to ensure your session becomes unique. All this said you still need to feel and look like you, just a ‘polished’ and ‘finished’ you!!
Make-up is purely an enhancement of natural beauty , therefore my job is to enhance you not hide you!”
We also recently received this comment from one of our clients regarding her makeover –
“I am so glad I had my make up done professionally as Katie knew just how much to apply for the camera. I don’t normally wear much make-up and so didn’t want to look overdone, but just a more glamorous version of myself! This is exactly the look Katie achieved and I am really pleased with the way the make-up looks in the photos”
So – What will yours look like?
