Bridal Makeup

Q: Why get your bridal makeup professionally done on your wedding day?

A: One of the things I've discovered when it comes to bridal makeup is that many of today's brides-to-be have heard of airbrush makeup, but aren't exactly sure what it is or if it would be right for them. And of all days, your wedding day is not one for taking chances. Your wedding day isn't the time to experiment with red lipstick or smoky eyes for the first time. When coming in for your bridal trial we recommend to wear a shirt closest to your dress color ( whether it be white or ivory ) and to bring along makeup ideas that you feel comfortable with. Always have pictures to show your artist on the makeup you like. Build a Pinterest page on different makeup you like.  Pictures are key. Tell your artist about your normal makeup regimen. Do you usually wear makeup? For people that never wear makeup, anything can be a lot. Do you have oily to dry skin? What are your concerns? What is it that you absolutely don’t like, and what do you love? Communication is key, in order to create the exact look you are looking for!

I always tell my brides that my goal is for them to look like themselves, just defined and finished. I would hate for a bride to look at her pictures five years from now and not recognize the girl in them.

Q: How does bridal makeup differ from every day makeup, high fashion makeup or makeup for television?

A; High fashion and editorial are most often very bold, dramatic, and much edgier. With bridal makeup, the key to success is finding the harmony between what looks beautiful and natural in person so that the bride feels her absolute best in her own skin but also using the right contouring and highlighting to make the photos the best they can be. Everything I use is designed for high definition filming, but the approach I use in my application makes it wearable and comfortable for the bride.

Q: A lot of brides are hearing about the Airbrush Makeup... What is the main difference between airbrush makeup and traditional makeup? 

A: Airbrush is just a different way of applying foundation. The airbrush is 7% thinner then traditional foundation. It creates a fine mist of foundation on to the face resulting in a flawless, even, and long-lasting finish, as opposed to a traditional application with sponges and brushes. You can spray on layers which build up coverage on the skin and depending on how many layers you put on, you can obtain various degrees of coverage. It can really adhere to the skin and last longer into the evening. If you prefer your skin to have really full coverage it may be the choice for you. It does cover tattoos and birthmarks very well. Both are beautiful and traditional can be made just as long-lasting as airbrush if done properly.
