Look like yourself

What do you do when you want to “look like (your)self” but also want a makeup application that is more sultry and polished than your everyday look? You choose something along the lines of what Miss S is sporting below. We started with a flawlessly contoured skin and then played up the eyes with a little smokeyness in the outer corner and crease, lots of black eyeliner, and big false lashes. By keeping the cheeks soft and finishing with pale pink lips, Miss S doesn’t look overdone. Our focus goes directly to her super sexy eyes without being distracted by too much color elsewhere on her face.

Expert Tip: If you are planning to wear a rainbow of colors during your photoshoot with Belle Boudoir, make sure to have your makeup artist apply neutral colors. You can choose brown/bronze tones or grey/gunmetal tones and your makeup will flatter every color in the rainbow!
