Girls, I know we love before and afters. We know that we can head to the grocery store in our sweats, no make-up and straight out of the shower and rock the natural beauty. But we also know we can get glammed up and rock the fully made-up look. And if you’re like me, getting all glammed up is a treat reserved for going out, big nights on the town and anniversaries, hah!
So there’s no shame in any woman’s “before” photo, let’s be clear. Lately I’ve been shooting some of my home boudoir sessions au-natural, myself, and I must say, it’s liberating. I suppose the closer I get to 40, the more I embrace that a little moisturizer and light lipgloss go a long way. (And is sure a lot easier than breaking out the foundation, eye liner, et all.) I think that’s one of the things I love most about getting older. Yes, I think it’s a drag that my joints hurt and my hair insists on going grayer every year, but there are life lessons that make the aging process so worth it.
Anyway, I want to share a few before and after hair/makeup from the Curves Boudoir sessions. We’re visual, right ladies? And you need to SEE how this whole hair and makeup thing works! As you know, makeup and hair is included with every session and it’s not optional. Why? Because the power of makeup to smooth skin, hide blemishes, contour your cheekbones and make your eyes really pop is a a big part of getting the most out of a boudoir session. When you have professional photos taken, whether on your wedding day or for a portrait or boudoir session, you want to accentuate your best features and make sure your skin is camera ready.
Do you have to get tons of makeup put on? Absolutely not! You can get a beautiful natural look that highlights your best features without looking overly made up. So don’t be afraid of hair and makeup. (The first before/after below is a natural look and she rocks it out!) Besides, you know how you spill your soul to your hair stylist? The same happens when we get you in the makeup chair. We love getting to know you while you’re in makeup and hair!
Here are some before and afters – you take these beautiful women and add some makeup and boom, ready to knock some socks off in their Curves Boudoir session!
