There are countless makeup techniques and schools of thought when it comes to wedding day beauty, but airbrush makeup has become all the rage and is being used more and more by modern brides on their wedding day. Out of all of the latest bridal makeup tips airbrush makeup is one that’s worth looking into, considering it’s been around for more than ten years and is at the forefront of the latest and greatest of bridal makeup trends.
History: Airbrush makeup has been around for approximately ten years, but has been used predominantly by professional makeup artists for television and film actors. The reason for this is because it makes your skin look flawless, which is especially important for actors with the increasing popularity of high-definition televisions.
How it works: Airbrush is a type of beauty makeup that is literally sprayed onto your skin, whether it is your face, your body, or both. It is designed to cover up every blemish, unwanted beauty mark, tattoo, fine lines, spider veins etc. Airbrush makeup performs its job best under harsh or abrasive lighting, making it an ideal beauty pick for a long event such as a wedding where you have the starring role.
What it is: Airbrush makeup consists of normal makeup, silicone fluid, or water. When sprayed on it feels like you’re in a Mystic tanning booth (if you’ve ever experienced that), or as though you’re under a mister (like the kind restaurants have on outside during a hot day).
Benefits: There are countless benefits you’ll experience from using airbrush makeup. Firstly it’s more hygienic than regular makeup because there aren’t any powder puffs or sponges used. Airbrush makeup is lightweight, which will give you a natural look as you stand on the alter or converse with your guests throughout the night. You won’t have to worry about makeup rubbing off when you wipe tears, or hug your guests. It takes half the amount to apply when compared to the application of regular makeup—and it lasts for up to sixteen hours!
Mix Makeup: If you decide to go the airbrush makeup route, you aren’t confined to only this technique for all of your makeup. You have the freedom of mixing airbrush with regular makeup, as many makeup artists do. You can use the airbrush to apply your lip and eye color, or just your foundation, and then use regular makeup brushes to apply the rest of your makeup.
Price: The price of airbrush makeup varies from around $150 per session to approximately $300 per session. This may seem like a lot, however if you’re planning on hiring a professional makeup artist either way you might as well spend a little extra money for the assurance that your makeup will be flawless. If there is one aspect of your wedding day you don’t want to take a gamble with—it’s your makeup.
