You are getting married soon ! You already have a lot of things to prepare and decisions to make for the ceremony…and now your make up artist is asking you if you want a traditional or airbrush make up technique for your wedding day !
If you can’t decide because you don’t really know what is the difference, let us help you a little.
TRADITIONAL MAKE UP
When 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.
For the airbrush application, your make up artist will use a small air compressor, also called airgun machine. This micro spray technology gives a very natural and uniform result using a very small amount of special airbrush foundation (silicon or water based). In few minutes you have a flawless doll skin perfect for the photo shooting. 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…
