Hair and Makeup for Boudoir

We recently did a bridal show and one of the common questions we got was about hair and makeup fees. As Brides have probably done a lot of research they know how much it costs for the big day. It was, therefore, a bit of a shock to some of them to find that ;

Every boudoir session booked with Burford Studio includes full professional hair and makeup as part of the session fee.

That’s right, we include the service to ensure that you will be 100% camera ready and looking perfect for the shoot. Makeup for a photo shoot is a little different from makeup for normal wear and requires a makeup artist familiar with the application and techniques which is why we use the fantastic talents of Salon KG or Our Friends at Luscious Lengths to ensure the perfect look.

Most people understand that there is a difference between makeup for everyday life and makeup which is appropriate for on-camera. However, the common misconception is that on-camera makeup is the same as an everyday look just, much heavier.

The reality is that in today’s high definition world (more so for 4K) the gap between real life and on-camera is dramatically reduced. If anything, hair and makeup for the purposes of video production, needs to be more polished, perfectly applied to be seamless and almost invisible (in many cases a lighter application than an at home makeup). With high definition, the image output is pin sharp, and often viewed on screens that are larger than life exposing every flaw in makeup application.

Aside from the level of image detail that technology delivers, it is also important when filming, to consider the effect of the sets lighting on the beauty of the subject.”
After having your hair styled and makeup professionally applied, our clients get a wonderful confidence boost and feel more relaxed for the session. In fact, many wish they had made plans for a night out after the shoot. We looked at this and decided to add to our offering “The Ultimate  Date Night” package.
