Today we have a guest post by the amazing Claudia Moriel! Claudia is a gifted makeup artist in the Boston area who specializes in making women look and feel their very best. She was kind enough to share a fews tips with us for how to achieve perfect boudoir makeup along with a few of her makeup must-haves!

 

From Claudia:

Ok so you have taken the step and built up your courage for a boudoir shoot. Now you want to make sure you look your best and feel confident! Getting your hair and makeup done is a great way to let a professional bring out the best in you for such important moment in your life. Here are some of my favorite products and techniques I use when doing boudoir makeup.

First I always start with the eyes. In boudoir makeup you can really play up the eyes and do a sultry smokey look. By doing the eyes first you don't have to worry about eye shadow fall out making your under eye area look darker or ruining your oh so perfect airbrush foundation. After I apply the eye makeup, I clean up any fall out with a MAC makeup wipe and then build all of the other makeup around the eyes.

Urban Decay Eye Potion
MAC Makeup Wipes 

 

Next, I begin to conceal any imperfections before applying foundation. By concealing first you can create more of a seamless look and not get the pancake effect. Then, I assess the bone structure on the face and begin contouring. Again I do this underneath the foundation so it is a subtle effect that catches the light just right in the photos. Finally I even out the skin by applying a light coat of Airbrush foundation. By lightly building all of these steps together the skin looks porcelain.

Must-haves for the skin

Dermacolor Camouflage Creme
Kett Creme Color Fixx
Beauty Blender
Temptu Airbrush

 

I finish the look with some small touches. I highlight the cheeks and add blush. Then I pout the lips with some lipliner and gloss, and we can't forget to pop on some lashes! My favorite trick with the lashes is to apply a strip of lashes and then go in and fill in any gaps with individual lashes for the Bambi effect! For an extra bonus I set the face with Model in A Bottle Setting Spray so that the person I have worked on can wear her makeup all day and feel sexy and special even after the session.
