First of all.. What is airbrush makeup in CT?
Airbrush makeup is A light-weight makeup applied through an air gun machine that sprays a thin, even layer of makeup and creates a very soft finish if applied correctly. Basically, a small amount of a very thin makeup designed for airbrush use is put into a chamber of a gun. When the machine is turned on and the gun trigger pulled, a light spray of makeup comes out of the gun in a fine mist.
Why do you recommend airbrush makeup for brides?
There are quite a few reasons why airbrush makeup in CT is generally the better option for brides on their wedding day. The first reason being that because of the way it is applied in a fine mist, airbrush makeup covers the skin in a smooth, even fashion that gives the appearance of a flawless complexion without appearing too heavy like some traditional makeups. Colors can be mixed to find your perfect shade and since the mist is so fine, your natural skin tone shines through (if applied properly) which lets you still feel like.. well you. It also doesn’t FEEL heavy like a lot of traditional makeup that needs to be heavily layered to create the same flawless look. (Airbrush Makeup TIP: If you break a sweat on the dance floor, or for any other reason, make sure to blot not wipe to avoid smearing your makeup).
Also silicone-based airbrush makeup will not transfer onto clothing, which not only keeps the bride’s dress clean but also the groom’s collar. Wearing white can be very dangerous when mixed with a ton of concealers, bronzers, and powders. Airbrush makeup in CT helps smooth out some of the clothes-staining drama that comes with traditional foundations. It’s also waterproof (bring on the waterworks!) and it won’t go anywhere until you wash it off.
Another big benefit of airbrush makeup in CT is the way it looks in photos. Hi-Definition cameras have really made makeup artists more aware of their application methods. Every line from a brush or sponge, if not blended well, can be seen in detail through HD. With airbrush, you don’t ever worry about streaks or brush strokes. Since it’s sprayed, the fine mist mirrors the pixels in a picture, making it flawless and requiring minimal edits. So not only do makeup artists love it, photographers do too! And let’s face it, with every big event comes a slew of photos to capture the memories! A streaky, splotchy, makeup job is definitely not one of the memories you will want to cherish years from now.
Is airbrush makeup for everyone?
As with anything else, airbrush makeup in CT is not a one size fits all kind of thing. During your makeup trial, you should discuss with your makeup artist in CT what your options are, and what will work best for your desired look and skin type. A professionally trained makeup artist should be able to handle both traditional and airbrush makeup in CT in a way that complements you! Airbrush makeup needs to be applied to smooth, moisturized, hair-free skin. Traditional makeup needs pores to adhere to, however airbrush makeup can adhere to smooth surfaces and if you have any facial hair, it will adhere to each individual hair and can make someone look like a fuzzy peach. The same is true for dry skin. So Nair, wax, exfoliate, whatever you need to do, and if you aren’t comfortable with that then traditional makeup might be a better choice for you.
Is airbrush makeup worth the extra cost?
Absolutely! Although air brush makeup tends to run a few extra dollars, in the end it is money well-spent. This is especially the case when you are talking about one of the biggest days of your life, like your wedding day. The benefits of airbrush makeup far outweigh traditional makeup. It’s streak-free, transfer resistant, and wears all day long, even through sweat and tears. Also, think about the amount of money spent on your dress, hair, photography, etc. – why wouldn’t you want to make sure that your makeup is on-point? There are a lot of areas of a wedding that can be DIY, but makeup is not one of them. When you are paying a professional makeup artist in CT you are paying for so much more than someone to do your makeup for you, you are paying for years of education and experience that that artist has undergone before they even met you! Not to mention, the security that goes with knowing exactly what to expect (Wedding Tip: Always book a trial before your big day so both you and your artist know EXACTLY what is needed and to avoid any last minute surprises). Think about switching something around in your budget, maybe something that you can do yourself weeks before the wedding, and make room for the day-off necessities.
In the end, don’t stress too much! It all depends on your personal preference and if you can’t decide between the two, do a trial with both and see what’s right for you.
