Q: What happens at the bridal trial?
A: A trial is absolutely essential before the wedding day! However, it is not mandatory. A trial helps both the makeup artist and the bride. The trial helps the bride to figure out what look will best suit her on her on her wedding day. For the artist, it gives us a chance to see beforehand the condition of the brides' skin, it helps us to go home and go over what was done and determine if the techniques and products used were the absolute best for the specific bride. It also helps to make the process on the day go even quicker and smoother.
The trial will begin with a discussion of the bride's daily beauty regimen and water consumption. We discuss what make up, if any, you normally wear and any ideas you have. Allergies and skin sensitivity will also be discussed. Your look will then be created and applied! The bride is advised to bring photographs of makeup looks they like for a better understanding of their vision.
Q: What is the difference between traditional and airbrush makeup?
A: Airbrush is a light-weight liquid makeup applied through an air gun and compressor that produces a thin, even layer of makeup in a spraying motion. The fine mist of color covers the skin and gives the appearance of a flawless complexion. Airbrush makeup is sweat, tear and transfer resistant and photographs beautifully. Airbrush makeup is not to be confused with the ever so popular "airbrush" tool used on the program "Photoshop" to smooth texture of the skin. Traditional makeup is a Liquid, cream, and/or pressed powder that is usually applied with a sponge, brush or finger tips. Traditional makeup comes in the widest variety of any other makeup, with every shade available.
In Conclusion, the difference between airbrush makeup and traditional makeup is that airbrush makeup is made to last a minimum of 14 hrs. It is designed to mimic skin, therefore looking natural while providing the necessary coverage. The traditional makeup can be made to last all day and look natural as well, with the right technique.
Q: Do you offer eyes only or partial services?
A: No, the professional bridal look includes full makeup that is absolutely photograph ready! We want you looking your best throughout the whole event!
