Sometimes all you need is a sexy pair of shoes to spice up even the simplest look. Try a loose white button down with nice jeans and spiky heels like these ones below. You can also use the white button down and the heels for a boudoir photoshoot with Peekaboo. Earth tones are great for just about any skin tone and hair color. Our make up artist will make you glow for the camera. If you want to add some flash, try a splash of color, just keep the rest neutral to allow it to pop.
However, you can never go wrong with classic black heals. And they would make any outfit instantly sexy. Many of our clients love black heels for their boudoir shoots and we have a few pairs in our studio available for use.
Last but certainly not least, don’t forget jewelry and accessories. Keep it simple if you already have a sassy outfit on, or use them to accentuate that little black dress. Above all,have fun with your outfits, whether you are going out to a movie with friends, on a romantic date with your man, or to the studio for a sexy boudoir shoot with Peekaboo.

Very Berry Skin Beautifier
We highly recommend using organic fruit or fruit homegrown in your garden, if possible. Wash all fruit, cut stems, and place them all in a juicer. You can use a blender also for this one, if you don’t have a juicer. But it may make a thicker end result, which makes a delicious dessert alternative. You can add a large orange and a banana to add more juice for mixing and sweeten up the berries. Berries, bananas, and oranges are high in vitamins A, B, C, E and K, among other nutritional values. They are all delicious building blocks for a healthy-feeling and beautiful-looking skin. Serve in a tall glass for drinking if using orange juice, or in a cup to eat like dessert if it ends up thicker than juice.
Green Clean Skin Booster
Wash, cleanup stems, and chop up all ingredients. For this juice you will need a juicer because of the firmer vegetables that would need to be blended really fine in order to drink. Juice all the ingredients and alternate soft ingredients with firmer ones. Carrots are high in A which helps maintaining skin cells alive, as well as beta-carotene and antioxidants which help prevent skin damage. Spinach contains high levels of beta-carotene as well, which additionally offers free radical protection converting into vitamin A in the body. It also has vitamins C & E which are miracle workers for your skin. Apples are great for smooth skin and are rich in beta-carotene and vitamin C. Celery is rich in magnesium, iron, chlorophyll, folic acid, C and also has B vitamins and vitamin E which are all delicious for your skin health. Let your inner goddess shone through with this juice!
Summertime Smooth Skin Refresher
As previous, wash, cleanup stems, and chop up all items. Cucumbers are great for you skin whether you ingest them or apply the, directly on your skin. They are rich in silica which is important for the complexion and skin elasticity. Leave the peel on when prepping the cucumbers because most of the silica is in the peel. If you can’t buy organic cucumbers then it may be best to remove the peel before juicing. Same with the apple. If you have leftover cucumbers, cut them in ringlets and use them on your eyes for a refreshing awaking sensation. This recipe is great for your skin refreshing it and helping it stay silk and smooth. All the beauty vitamins in the ingredients will help your skin feel and stay beautifully alive.
