How airbrushing can save your wedding day from impending doom (This is not an exaggeration)
Your big day is finally here. The “I dos” are done and family and friends descend on you with joyous wishes of congratulations and celebratory embraces. After an especially overextended hug, you look down in horror to realize that your makeup has ruined your guest’s outfit and your caked on makeup has been exposed – a horror every bride dreads!
The good news is this doesn’t have to be you! A nightmare like this can be avoided in three simple choices:
1. The right PRODUCT.
2. The right APPLICATION.
3. The right MAKEUP ARTIST.
The right product.
When it comes to choosing the right product, there are a number of decisions that need to be made to ensure it is bride-proof. You need to choose the right brand, the right shade, the right finish, and of course, you want staying power. Be sure to do your research or leave it to the professionals. PearlGirlMakeup uses water resistant, sweat resistant, transferproof product that offers more than 12 hours of wear. Preferred brands include Dior, Charlotte Tilbury and Mac Cosmetics.
The right application.
While traditional application methods (i.e., sponges, brushes, etc.) are acceptable and proven, airbrushing is far superior for a number of reasons, which is why it is synonymous with flawless perfection.
What is airbrush?
Airbrush is the art of spraying a specially formulated makeup on the skin with an airbrush machine versus blending the product in using a brush or a sponge. Using forced air and a handheld device, a fine mist of makeup is applied to the skin leaving a finish that has been referred to as “your skin, but better.” The application is sure to hold up against the heat, humidity, sweat and tears – a bride’s dream!
The benefits of airbrushing include:
- A smooth, buildable base for any skin type
Airbrush can be used on any skin type to create a smooth base on top of the skin, minimizing texture to create a flawless canvas with a featherlight feel, and creating a buildable base that is perfect for layering without buildup.
- Built for long-lasting wear and performance
Airbrushed makeup is specially formulated to ensure longevity. It is transfer-proof, sweat resistant and most importantly, hug and tear proof, so you can rest assured your makeup will remain where it’s meant to be - on your face, helping you look your best all day and night long.
- Real life photoshop for that perfect bridal glow
Airbrush is the secret to achieving that perfect bridal glow. This sought-after look can be achieved with ease using airbrushing, which acts like real life photoshop, leaving you looking your best for the camera and up close.
- A chance to look and feel your best
Airbrushing can help you relax! Not only is it a relaxing application process that feels like a facial, but you also gain peace of mind knowing that your makeup, like your relationship, is going to last.
The right makeup artist
One of the most important factors to guarantee the perfect airbrushed makeup is the right makeup artist, one that has the technical training, skills and equipment to execute. Take a look at their portfolio, book a consultation and a trial to ensure your team has the right mix of products, tools and people to get the job done. More than 50 percent of brides opt for an airbrush trial which results in 100 percent satisfaction when they do!
