Our Top 5 Favorite Boudoir Makeup Looks

Clients are always asking us about what makeup style is best for shooting boudoir. We all have our personal favorites but to be honest, our Hair and Makeup Artists are so good that we couldn’t choose just one look, so here are five! 

#1: Smokey Eye + Nude Lip

Sultry and seductive, this look is stunning without being too overwhelming. It also happens to be our most popular client request in the studio. My favorite thing about this look is how versatile it is. Matte, shimmer, black, neutral tones, or bright and bold: all are simple yet striking.

#2: Classic Cat Eye

Dramatize those gorgeous eyes with this bolder version of the classic look. MEOW! This look is half “Fierce Feline” and half “Sex Kitten” and is sure to mesmerEYEze.

#3: Natural Glam

Dewy skin, barely-there contouring, and nude lips are a match made in heaven! This look is all about playing up your naturally stunning features.

#4: Ravishing Red Lips

No introduction necessary … We all love a 🔥 red lip. Whether a classic bright cherry or a mysterious and romantic deep burgundy, there’s a perfect shade of red for everybody!


Are you extra? EXTRA extra? These looks are just for you, boo. Bold lip, contour for days, AND a glittery or smoked out eye? I’m here for the drama.

Which one was your favorite? These are just a few of the looks we love to see in the studio but feel free to bring along inspiration pics of your own to show your Hair and Make Up Artist. Speaking of which, get to know the ones we use here at Gra:
