Susan's Big Day

It's been a while, actually too long, since I've posted something over here! Needless to say, it's been really busy!! SO to get back into the groove of things, thought it would be fun to share a photo from one of the weddings I did makeup for, and share the beautiful bride's kind words as well!!

"Having Janet do my makeup for my wedding was a wonderful experience from start to finish. During my makeup trial, she immediately put me at ease. I knew I could talk to her about anything - the look I wanted, didn't want, what I liked, what I didn't. Most importantly, after she was done, she emphasized that I could be 100% honest about what I thought and ask her to make any changes until I was totally comfortable".

Behind the Scenes for Melissa Gentile Couture

Wow! It's been a while since I've posted on this blog.. Bad Janet, bad... I guess you can say it's not for a lack of content but more for a lack of time lol. No more neglecting, because I have a lot of things to share, yay!

A few weeks ago, I got to work with a few of my favorite people; Miss Isa from Ella Photography, designer Melissa Gentile and hair stylist Malina Tang.  This time it was for Melissa's upcoming ad campaign that will launch in Elegant Wedding and Mariage Chic Wedding Magazine, details to come soon.

So take a peek at us hard at work =)

O'So Lovey Boudoir with Miss K

It's not everyday that I get to do makeup for another MUA, but this time I did! It's somewhat nerve wracking, because we're use to a certain way of doing our own makeup.  At the same time, it's a lot of fun because we share the same passion.  Top it all off with their appreciation of your work, needless to say, it makes for a great experience.

Here's a few of my fav looks from the shoot.

O'So Lovey Boudir with Miss A

Consider this inspiration to treat yourself to an experience that can't be expressed in words. Miss A wanted to treat herself to a day dedicated to her.  Being a mother, working full time while trying to further her education at the same time, it's easy to forget about yourself within the daily demands of life.

Here's just a little peak at another lovely ladies' boudoir shoot from the marathon.

Positively Stunning

What's really great about being a makeup artist is that I get to meet some incredible personalities.  Seriously, considering that I pretty much invade people's personal space and attack them with my brushes, it's amazing to hear what some people are willing to share.  Maybe it's more natural than I think since I have the opportunity to be a part of their transformation in front of the lens.  Anywho, check out MF and her beautiful transformation.

Brow Power

It's probably the thing that is most over looked on our face, but can make all the difference in our photos.  Our eyebrows not only help frame our face, it completes our look. While shape is really important, something as simple as filling them in or making them darker will help a lot too.  So this post is going out to those light weights, skimpy, sparse, and thinning brows, because we all deserve to be fearlessly fierce.

Bleached out brows are a thing of the past; start framing! Photo from: Makeup Artist Meet

Look Natural not Naked

Sometimes I get clients who ask me for a "barely there" look for a boudoir shoot, because their significant other is not a fan of makeup.  So why not just skip the makeup process all together? Well it's kind of an oxymoron, but in order to look natural in your photos you still need to wear makeup.  Take a look at Miss S in her before and after shot, and you'll start to get the bigger picture.

O'So Lovey Boudoir with Miss J

So this week I decided to showcase another lovely lady from the boudoir marathon. Miss J is no stranger to the lens, but this was intended to be a gift for her boyfriend.  Since Isa and I forget to take a before photo almost all the time, Miss J was sweet enough to share one.

O'So Lovely Glamour

So this week, I learned something new.  What our O'So Lovely team refers to as Boudoir is actually more Glamour.  Yes, the shoot in a bedroom and the ladies wear very beautiful garments, but it goes beyond that.  Isabella said it best, "I don't shoot bums, I shoot women".  Go ahead, I encourage you to compare her photos with the traditional photographers and you'll see difference; I think that's the only real way to understand it.
