Denver Boudoir Photography: Should I have my makeup professionally done?

One of the questions I get asked a lot by clients who inquire about Denver boudoir photography is about professional make-up.  Most women want to know if the additional cost is worth it.  The short answer is YES!  Not only does having your make-up professionally done help the images “pop,” especially where the eyes are concerned, but it also helps you to relax and get yourself into the mood to be photographed.  It’s obviously not a necessity, but considering the special nature of a boudoir photo shoot, I personally think that having a little additional pampering done prior to the photos being taken, is well worth the cost (normally $175 for both hair and make-up).

My favorite make-up artist to work with on my boudoir shoots is Keegan Steele of Steele the Spotlight. Keegan is always punctual and professional and she always makes my clients feel amazing, not to mention, LOOK amazing!  I absolutely love her and recommend her whenever I am able.  Keegan is based in Fort Collins but is happy to travel to Denver (and anywhere in Colorado for that matter) whenever I have a shoot to do.  She is an absolute doll and I honestly can’t say enough positive things about her.  Oh and she supplies fake eyelashes too!  She has been a wonderful vendor to partner with, particularly in my wedding and boudoir business.

Even though I personally don’t know a lot (admittedly) about make-up application and generally don’t wear much of it myself, what I can tell you is that it makes a huge difference in the way my clients eyes shine in the photos I take of them.  It is my opinion that when you feel beautiful you ARE beautiful.  And if you are going to go to the trouble to book a boudoir session, shop for it, work out for it, and get yourself mentally and physically prepared, why not take that last step and have your make-up done too?  It’s the last step before the camera comes out and I have never had a single client regret having done it.  Case in point… Check out these beautiful images that Keegan did the make-up for![oqeygallery id=368]
