Hi there my lovies… I am so excited to be introducing Sabrina.
She is my go-to girl for all things Makeup when it comes to my Denver Studio. She just knows how to make you shine like the goddess that you are, and I trust her when it comes to helping my babes get the pampering they deserve.
Guest Blog | Sabrina, Make Up Artist for EB Boudoir | Denver Studio
Hello ladies! I’m Sabrina, the owner of Sabrina Deemer Makeup based in Denver, Colorado.
I do makeup for just about everything – weddings, headshots, production, and of course, boudoir.
I’ve been lucky enough to work with Emily and her lovely clients for quite some time now and I wanted to share some tips on how you can prepare for hair and makeup before you come into the studio for your boudoir shoot!
First of all, I highly, highly recommend getting your brows shaped before your session! Whether you like to get them tweezed, waxed, or threaded, coming in with groomed brows will make such a difference.
It can be difficult to shape and fill in brows with makeup when they are overgrown so it will be easier for me, but having groomed brows also frames the face and accentuates the eyes.
make sure you do this a few days before your shoot because if you have sensitive skin like me, you might experience some redness and inflammation afterward.
Exfoliating is important
Why? because I’m pretty sure 90% of us that live in Colorado have dry, sometimes flaky skin and that doesn’t look good under makeup.
You can do this at home during your skincare routine (2-3 times a week) to remove the dead skin cells from your face. Don’t forget to exfoliate your lips too so you have nice, smooth lips for lipstick!
If you want to get crazy and really treat yourself before your boudoir session, you can schedule an appointment with an esthetician for a dermaplane.
It’s my favorite treatment to get done and it’ll remove all of the dead skin and peach fuzz from your face, making your skin super soft and smooth (aka a makeup artist’s dream).
Speaking of treatments
If you get lash lifts done, please do not get one done right before your shoot.
Lash lifts make it incredibly hard and sometimes impossible for me to apply false lashes and trust me, you do not want to skip the false lashes for your photos!
Moisturize your skin
Which you should be doing anyway because again, Colorado.
Definitely moisturize your face and lips well before bed the night before your boudoir shoot. On the morning of your shoot, you can perform your normal skincare routine before coming into the studio.
Make sure you come in with a clean face, moisturizer is okay but no makeup. Including any leftover mascara from the day before.
As for hair
You should come to the studio with clean, dry hair.
Please wash it the night before or the morning of your shoot (we don’t want oily hair) and don’t put any product in it. Make sure it’s completely dry, no damp hair, please!
Have an idea of what you want for makeup?
Feel free to have some inspiration photos ready for me when you come in for your shoot.
It’s important to me more than anything that you feel beautiful and confident, so I want to hear all of your likes and even dislikes when it comes to makeup!
If you’re a more natural girl and have no idea where to even start when it comes to makeup, that’s okay too. We’ll chat and come up with a look that you will love!
Come sit in my chair, relax and have a good time!
Guess what, you’re stuck with me for the first hour or so during your boudoir experience.
I love getting to know all of my boudoir babes so expect me to ask you about your life, your interests, sometimes crazy TikTok trends come up, and celebrity crushes, you know…girl talk.
