For those of you who may not know, here at Peekaboo we have our own amazing make-up artist, Kirstie Wight! Thanks to her, every Peekaboo client looks flawless for her boudoir photoshoot feeling nothing short of fabulous during the entire time! Kirstie compiled a sweet list of beauty tips for you!
Scrub regularly to get your blood flowing and smooth any dry skin leaving it soft and polished. Here are some of Kirstie’s favorite products for scrubbing:
Face | Laura Mercier Face Polish | Boscia Smoothing Facial Polish | Bobbi Brown Buffing Grains
Lips | Sara Happ Lip Exfoliator | Lush Bubble Gum Lip Scrub | Aubery Elizabeth Apothecary Blood Orange Lip Scrub
Body | Tea Tree Shea Sugar Scrub | The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Body Scrub | Fresh Brown Sugar Body Scrub
There are countless benefits for using coconut oil. Where to begin… It can be used for everything, including skin and hair moisturizer, makeup remover, deep conditioning mask, and it even has great health benefits to eating it! One of Kirstie’s favorite brands is Adara Coconut Virgin Oil.
Because it feels so good! Body brushing is great before the morning shower. Aside from basic exfoliation, body brushing or dry brushing is an incredible way to rid your body of toxins and reduce bloating. You can find body brushes at your local health food store or beauty boutique.
Our feet need love, too. Be kind to your feet and scrub them! Pumice stones, foot scrubs and exfoliating creams are great options to keeping your tootsies in tip top shape.
AHAs are commonly used for cosmetic applications. They exfoliate the skin chemically rather than physically. There are many different delivery systems such as exfoliating pads for the face, face creams and lotions as well as body lotions.
Drink water regularly even if you’re not thirsty, and then drink some more! It’s just like sleep; you can tell when you haven’t had enough. But the best treatment is prevention, so drink up all the time! Be mindful of your water intake and your skin will thank you.
We’d like to thank Kirstie for her wonderful tips. You can check out her beautiful work here and see why we love having her at our in the studio. If you have your own favorite beauty tip to add to the list, please share it with us on our Facebook page!

You may or may have not noticed the little beautiful details of Fall weather around Portland. But one thing that is for sure: cold weather is here to stay, at least for several months. And along with cold weather and cozy warm clothes come the holidays and yummy comfort food… lots of it! However, that doesn’t mean that you have to pay any less attention to your body and start to neglect any of the health routines you have been working on so hard since Spring, or even before. Lucky for you, we have compiled a simple list of self loving and caring routines you can adopt to continue keeping that body of yours – as well as your mind – healthy and beautiful throughout fall, winter, and for years to come!
Portland has an abundant variety of yoga studios. Not only that but many of them also offer free yoga classes throughout the year. If you’re not a fan of yoga, gyms, dance studios and other workout facilities are all over the city. For the weather resilient ones out there, you can take your running shoes or bike and go to a different park in Portland every other week. Natural environment is something that, luckily, this beautiful city of ours has plenty to offer. Maintaining a healthy and fun workout routine throughout the colder days of the year is crucial not just for the body but also your mind. try supplementing vitamin D in your diet for the lack of sunshine if that’s something that affects you.
Sleep more! Your body needs it, your mind needs it, and your mood needs it too! Especially now that the days keep getting shorter, make sure to give yourself enough sleep to feel well-rested so your immune system maintains itself to the highest standards. Make sure it is quality sleep; a plush and comfortable eye mask along with ear plugs or soft music or nature sounds will help. Melatonin, lavender oil and a slightly cool room will help you sleep deeper. If you have any health issues or allergies, make sure to consult with a doctor as difficulties with sleep often are just symptoms to other actual issues.
Laugh more. Laugh often! Try to be light-hearted and don’t take yourself too seriously. If you are not an easily entertained person, try finding gratitude for simple things in life. Look at cute animals, or babies. The process helps our brain release serotonin which makes us feel good and at ease.
Use it in your food, on your skin, hair, nails… everywhere and all the time! Take the time to actually massage your skin and hair during the application. Think of it as an act of kindness to your body, and rest assured that your body will love you for it for years to come. For more healthy hair and skin care ideas check out some of our previous articles.
Do we really need to say why dark chocolate is good for your? We’ll just say that it is great for your taste palate and we’ll let the experts explain the why.
Perfect time for “you” time… Relax, pamper, detox, cleanse… Taking the time to alternate quick showers with pampering baths will give you a whole other appreciation to cleansing. It is a great chance for you to spend quality time just being. Spoil yourself with some organic bath oils, Epsom bath salt to relax your hard working muscles, candle lighting to soothe your eyes and mind, maybe even a glass of wine!
No need to elaborate much on this one… Healthy and safe sex is amazing for your body and mind – and of course for your relationship too! Plus, it could count as your cardio exercise for the day! Having more sex is a win win no matter how you see it. Side effects may include catching yourself singing in the rain and dancing your way through puddles the morning after.
We love getting feedback from our clients! Here is some love from Mrs. I. who did a beautiful boudoir photoshoot as a wedding gift for her hubby!
Q. In a brief sentence, how would you describe your experience?
A. Liberating! Everyone made me feel so welcome and comfortable. I knew I was in good hands.
Q. In a brief sentence, how would you describe the studio?
A. The studio was a little rustic gem. It felt like I was at a girlfriend’s house. I loved all the different props and tricks Jessica used to make it feel like home.
Q. Because the studio is new, and we are always looking for ways to improve, what would have made the studio better?
A. Honestly, it’s hard to improve perfection. Maybe a slightly larger dressing area? The bathroom actually worked out great though. Every little detail down to the room temp and music selection was run by me for my comfort.
Q. Did Jessica make you feel comfortable and at ease? Is there any thing she could have changed to make your experience better?
A. Jessica was fantastic! Her posing guide and some Pinterest research helped me understand the types of poses I would need to get into. Although, she explained each pose and made my body look its best.
Hello October and hello Miss A. in sexy pink! Since it is now officially breast cancer awareness month, we’d like to remind you lovelies to make sure you’re keeping your two ladies healthy by checking regularly on them and leading a healthy lifestyle. That way you can show them off with pride decorating them with gorgeous lingerie like Miss A. on this blog post – wherever appropriate of course. Because healthy breasts means a healthy (and happy) you!
We really enjoyed this lovely boudoir photoshoot with Miss L, showcasing the sexiest version of simplicity. Sometimes all you need is just that, your sexy self with a side of confidence. Let us do the rest. Thank you Miss L. for your permission to showcase your beauty on our blog.
