The Airbrush Makeup Process


Airbrush makeup is the camera-wedding makeup option beloved by celebrities. The stuff stays put all day, never looks sweaty or oily, and reflects light so well you always look great in photos. It’s subsequently a popular trend among brides, as wedding photos are something to look at throughout a couple’s life together! Learn a little about the airbrush makeup process to find out what your session will be like. It’s the perfect second wedding gift if your first wedding photos came out terrible!

Fresh-Faced

A freshly-washed face is necessary for any makeup application, and airbrush makeup is no exception. Your makeup artist will evaluate your skin for blemishes, scars, and other imperfections.

Foundation

Custom-blended color is applied to your face with an airbrush compressor to correct imperfections. The spray is controlled and direct. Next your foundation is applied–the stuff is light, weightless, and lets skin breathe.

Cheek Color

Blush and a hit of base base are blended for a more natural application before it is sprayed on your cheeks.

Eyebrows & Eyeshadow

Eyebrows are defined with an eyebrow stencil and the compressor tool. Your eyes are sprayed with foundation before eyeshadow is applied by hand.

Lashes & Lip Color

A row of lashes or individual lashes are applied. Lip stencil and gloss are used to achieve the perfect lip.

Airbrush makeup is something of an investment, however if you have the budget for it and you want to ensure you look your absolute best on your wedding day, it is well worth the money. This makeup holds up from ceremony to reception to after parties and beyond, and never looks cakey or otherwise less-than-perfect. Consider it as a gift to your bridal party as well so everyone has flawless makeup all day long!
