No two women are the same, so why should their makeup be? Don’t let all those makeup options stop you from having the time of your life at your luxury boudoir photoshoot. Whether you’re Glam, prefer the natural vixen, or looking for that classic pinup style, a boudoir photo shoot is the perfect time to rock what makes you beautiful. And the best part is that you aren’t alone! Every professional boudoir session with Lux includes our in-house professional makeup artist who will help you create whichever fun and flirty style you decide.


Bring on the contour! 

For glam, think of the following to bring out that smoky eye.

  • Lining
  • Smudging 
  • Accentuating

Your lips are another great asset, so we’ll be lining and shining those beauties, as well. Lashes are a must for this look, but don’t be intimidated by the idea of wearing false ones. A little lash-inspiration is easy to come by with the help of our in-house professional makeup artist.

Remember, you’ll want to choose one main focal point for your glam boudoir look, whether it’s eyes or lips. A good rule-of-thumb is to pair dark eyes with a nude or lighter lip (as seen here). This is very classic Victoria Secret vibes… Don’t worry our expert makeup artists will have you GLAM in a heartbeat!


If you’re more a natural beauty type of girl, you can still be who you are while wearing some great makeup. So here is what you can do to bring out the natural essence for that sexy bedroom vibe. 

  • You’ll start off by moisturizing (the secret to all around great makeup sessions)
  • Then use a concealer to lighten up under your eyes.
  • For a natural glow you can add a light powder foundation and a little rosy blush. 

And for your eyes? Think a muted shadow over your eyelid, and more natural style of false eyelashes. We always suggest false lashes as they add just a bit more oomph to your eyes. Think about trying a matte natural or nude color tone for your lip!


For the retro girl, a Lux Boudoir shoot is the perfect platform to show off her style. Strong brows, a defined lash line, and red lips, is the signature look. If you’re looking for more of a vintage vibe, the key to pinup boudoir style is not to overdo it!

  • For brows, which are the foundation of the pinup look, your stylist will keep them well shaped
  • Fill the brow pencil just a shade or two darker than your natural hair color. 
  • Your eyelids will stay neutral, emphasized with either a beige or taupe color variation. 
  • A perfect cat-eye is essential to the pin up look.
  • Top it off with a bold red lip.

Ready to get that perfect cat-eye? With the help of our makeup artist you can have that crisp bold liner and top it off with a red lip, you will be camera ready!
