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

                 TRADITIONAL MAKE UP

Your make up artist has plenty of tools, colors, textures and she knows different techniques on how to apply the makeup (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

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

Tips from Sarah Garnier:
– We use waterproof products for our traditional and airbrush makeup, 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 dewy look (like Megan Markle’s wedding makeup 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 makeup 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 makeup feels, looks, and how long it lasts.
See the difference
