If you didn’t know it and you are one month from the wedding, don’t worry, the skin cells renew every 21 to 28  day, you still have time to improve your skin appearance for the big day.
  • Eat Healthy and Drink Water :It is good for your skin, your body and your energy. It can sound like so obvious but too many time we  forget how much what we eat can affect our skin aspect. Eat a lot of fruits ans vegetables. Choose them full of water like watermelon, kiwi or strawberries, green vegetables like cucumber, spinach, iceberg lettuce etc. Drink a lot of water and green tea.

If you are getting married at the beimages (1)ach, in the Riviera Maya– Mexico for example, eat a lot of papaya, tomatoes and carrots before arriving at destination. They  are full of B-Carotene and will help you not to burn your skin under the sun. Moreover it will give a beautiful color to your tan. Eating well also helps to get in shape.

  • Monthly Professional Facial Treatment : After a quick skin diagnosis, the profesionnal will  determine your skin type and condition and decide which skincare treatment is good for you. The facial not only improves your appearance. Refreshing the skin and getting all the dirt out of the pores will also help the skin to better serve its protection purpose.

You are getting married soon and you must be getting super excited! And now it’s the time to think about your wedding look. What kind of hairstyle to wear, the head piece or flower crown and of course… your make up style!

And for your make up you have two options… Traditional or Airbrush makeup.

About Us pic

You are probably thinking … what’s the difference between the two? What is traditional make up? What do you mean when you say airbrush make up?  Those are questions most of our brides to be have…So let us explain a bit more about both techniques. 

                 TRADITIONAL MAKE UP

Captura de pantalla 2020-03-25 a las 7.46.07 p.m.When we talk about traditional make up, we talk about the application method, in this case is done with regular make up products like brushes, foundations, powders, concellers, highlighters, etc. Basically the same tools that you could use at home. Your make up artist has plenty of tools, colors, textures and she knows different techniques on how to apply the make up (using brushes,  sponges or the fingers tips) to make you look gorgeous.  We can find traditional make up in various presentations (liquid, cream or pressed powder), the perfect one for you is based on your skin type, your make up artist will choose the right one for you on your wedding day.

                     AIRBRUSH MAKEUP

16998744_1855928408028012_6201988974825398867_nFor the airbrush application, your make up artist will use a small air compressor (air gun machine).  This micro-spray technology gives a very natural and uniform result because it applies a very small amount of special airbrush foundation (silicon or water based).  The result can be matte or glowy, light or high coverage, just tell your make up artist the style you are looking for.

The airbrush make up is very long-lasting because the ultra-fine concentrated mist creates a perfect coverage veil on your skin – giving it longer durability. Since the foundation is the perfect match for your skin, it can withstand pretty much anything- including the the Riviera Maya weather (humidity, rain, mist, heat).

Tips from Sarah Garnier:
– We use waterproof prodcuts for our traditional and airbrush make up, so… choose the technique based on the look you would like to achieve and the one you feel comfortable with.
-Airbrush makeup allows the natural hues in your skin to radiate through the makeup achieving a super natural and dewey look (lile Megan Markle’s wedding make up style) .
– Both techniques take about 45 min for the application, so whichever you choose the application time would be the same.
– If you are the bride to be, tell your hair and make up artist the style you like and share with her some pictures so she can recommend the best technique to achieve that look.
– If you can, do a trial run before the big day!
This way you will know exactly how the make up feels, looks and how long it lasts.
See the difference
