If you can’t decide because you don’t really know what is the difference, let us help you a little.


                 TRADITIONAL MAKE UP

Makeup foundation 628x363When your make up artist talks about traditional make up, it means the application is done with regular make up products: brushes, foundations, powders, eye shadows … The same tools that you could use at home. Your make up artist probably has more products, colors, textures and tools than you do and can decide to use brushes, a sponge or the fingers tips for the application. The make up artist uses pancake, liquid, cream or pressed powder foundation depending on you skin properties. It exists so many options on the beauty market that you should let the professional choose the best for you on your wedding day.


                     AIRBRUSH MAKEUP

The result can be matte or glowy, light or opaque, just tell your make up artist the style you want.

The airbrush make up is very long lasting, it actually lasts longer than traditional make up and this is why it is highly recommended for weddings, night events or for fashion, TV, cinema, photo shoots etc…

Tips from your Makeup Artist :
For your beach wedding in the Caribbean Riviera Maya – Mexico , both techniques are good because we use waterproof products, but let us give you some additional recommendation :
– Airbrush makeup technique gives a lighter and more natural result than the traditional.
– Very quick application
– The tropical weather will make you sweat more than usual and the airbrush will last longer than traditional makeup.
– With airbrush makeup no touch ups needed.
– If you are the bride to be, tell your hair and make up artist the result you want (more or less opacity), you can share with her some pictures of the result you would like.
– We always recommend a trial run before the big day to feel more relax on the wedding day.
