Have a big date this Valentine's Day weekend?
The queen of Miami pinups, Janette Valentine, photographer and owner of Terribly Girly studio, has some tips for ladies looking to gussy up for a night of romance.
Valentine and her "glam squad" of make-up artists, hairstylists, and wardrobe stylists spend their days transforming Miami ladies into retro pinup beauties.
February is a busy month for the Terribly Girly crew. The Midtown studio offers Valentine's Day Pin-Up Sessions for femmes looking to give their significant others a portfolio of boudoir shots.
This year, they even offered a new theme, Exotic Burlesque, in case you'd like to involve a live snake in you fantasy photo spread.
The TG crew took a break from Valentine's Day sessions to offer the following tips to channeling a coquettish pinup:
~Remember the 3 "L's" to create that pinup look on the go: lipstick, lashes, and liner.
~Be confident and have a sense of humor.
~Show your flirty feminine side with a flower in your hair.
~Be a femme fatale in a sexy pair of high heels, topped off with silky stockings and garters.
~Be creative and learn the art of teasing. A little goes a long way on a date.
