What Boudoir Look Is Best for You?

Lot of times ladies considering a boudoir shoot are concerned about what to wear and what type of look they want. Never fear! Wanda and Mell Bell are here to help.
The most important thing we tell all our Bella Beauties is to pick something that fits you, that physically fits you. Wearing something too big will add bulk and too small will just at rolls and bumps where there aren’t any. Equally as important as the size, is the color. If you are really pale (like us) wearing white or a light pastel color may just make you look washed out. Black looks good on everyone. Don’t be afraid of bright, bold colors. They pop! Varying shades of Coral, Magenta or Turquoise look great on every skin tone.

The Girl Next Door

 If you are more of a natural girl who doesn’t normally wear much makeup, you may just want to consider something soft like The Girl Next Door look. This look is very natural with soft makeup and soft curls. It works for most women. For this look, a bra and panties, shorts and a tank top, a sweater with panties or a favorite sports team.

 The Super Model

 Thinking of something a little more sexy? Consider more of a Super Model look. This look has bolder colors on the eyes and lips, with big sexy curls. Think runway model perfection. Outfit suggestions are bra and panties or lingerie with great shoes!

 The Retro

 What about a Retro look? Something a little more 50’s. Ladies in the 50’s loved lipstick! Colors ranged from pink to orange red and purple red mixes. Eyeliner and mascara to open up the eyes. For more Retro ideas, check out our Pinterest Page… http://www.pinterest.com/boudoirandpinup/ With this look, you can wear bra and panties with a tight button up cardigan, vintage lingerie or for a saucy look consider a really cute apron!

 The Vixen

Thinking something really, really spicy? The Vixen look. Go dramatic hair and makeup with big hair. The sexier lingerie the better, a corset, something really strappy. And KILLER shoes (don’t worry we have some that fit most sizes).

Whatever look you are going for… make sure it is something you are gonna feel good about it. If you don’t feel good about it, it will show in your photos. Don’t try to hard to be something you are not. It’s about being the best version of YOU!

Stay Sexy,

Wanda and Mell Bell
