Should I have Airbrush make up for my Wedding day?
You want look incredible on your Wedding day. Deciding whether to have a traditional foundation applied or airbrush foundation is an important decision to make.
So, what is Airbrush makeup?
Airbrush makeup is often confused with Airbrushing in Photoshop.
Airbrush makeup for Brides, is mostly just foundation that is sprayed on with an airbrush gun run by a compressor. It is a much finer application and because foundation is sprayed on in little dots, it mimics the way todays HD cameras see our face - in pixels - little dots.
Airbrushing has both water based and silicon based types of foundation. Face2Face Makeup Artistry uses Temptu, which is silicon bases. Silicon is more of a dewy finish, is highly water resistant and lasts for up to 16 hours. Using Primers and matifers helps with longevity.
What type of skin should have airbrush application?
It works best on skin that is in good condition and really shouldn’t ever be applied thickly. It is great on mature of skins that are dry in texture tend not to be the best for traditional application products.
Airbrushing can be amazing for skin with some sensitivities, as you don’t have the rubbing and blending of traditional makeup that can sometimes irritate the skin.
What are the advantages of Traditional application foundation?
Traditional application can be built up or sheered out. You can also work the foundation into the skin if you have skin texture problems.
Face2Face has several different formulas of foundation to choose from.
So whilst airbrush makeup and traditional application methods, can both have their advantages and disadvantages, the final decision can come down to which formula suits you and your skin. What looks great on your friend may not look the same on you.
