Boston Boudoir | Before and After

A former neighbor, former bride and wonderful friend.  Oh, and don’t forget incredible cook and ultimate dance machine.  Ellie is pretty much always game for fun, and I know she enjoys experimenting with color herself.


Here you can see what a professional makeup and paired with good lighting and getting coached into relaxing in front of the camera can do.  Here's an example of Ellie’s Before and After.

Boudoir photography is about celebrating and a playing up your best features - highlighting your natural beauty.  Jillian Donovan created this look for Ellie.  With Ellie’s look, Jillian wanted the attention to be on her lips.  A blood red lipstick, defined with a lip pencil, to bring out fullness of her lip shape.  Keeping her eye makeup soft and romantic with a soft pink eye shadow.  Jillian created a pearly and dewy glow to her cheek bone to continue of the soft light reflective makeup style. Natural looking false lashes were added and her brows were softly shaped.
