Oldie, but Goodie : French Boudoir Shoot w/ LunaBella Make-up Art & the incredible event designer, Nico Cervantes

Santa Barbara Romantic & Sexy Boudoir Shoot

Featured on The Wedding Chicks May 3, 2010

Shari Lynn Rothstein runs an imaging/PR company called SLK Creative, which focuses on weddings and special events. Shari Lynn shared this stunning boudoir photo shoot for the “bride to be”!

Styled and produced by Nico Cervantes, owner of Nico Designs. Make-up & Hair by LunaBella Make-up Art .

Nico not only hand-selected every item in the shoot, but took it to the next level by embellishing and enhancing various items himself. “I sewed little crystals on her shoes, created her necklace, knitted and finished the roses by hand, recovered the love bench and footstool to match the draping. Naturally, all of the florals were my designs. The Bridal bouquet was made of faux knitted, origami, hand-sewn and paper roses all made by hand. Vintage hat pins and amethyst rhinestone brooch embellished the handle. I embellished the chandelier with crystals and so much more so no detail would be overlooked. That is what makes the difference,” Cervantes says.

With the photo expertise of Michelle Ferry of MiBelleinc. Photography, Nico was able to capture a story from start to finish to entice all who behold. From the conception and styling to execution and finishing touches, Nico put his one-of-a-kind stamp on every last detail.

Is this incredibly beautiful or what?

excerpt from LunaBella Make-up Art :

“For the make-up, Ashley used peaches and golds to highlight her lid, but add romantic depth to her eyes. She also used individual lashes to accentuate her lash line without going overboard. For a flawless look on her skin, Ashley airbrushed her foundation. Airbrush foundation is water-resistant, transfer proof, and is simply veiled onto the skin. This creates a beautiful, soft finish that looks amazing on film. For the hair, Christin used a wand curling iron all over her whole head & pinned the curls. This allows for the curl to set & last longer throughout the day. Using a “working hairspray” on the hair definitely ensures a longer hold time. ”
