Is airbrush makeup really worth it? Oh my goodness Yes! Are you a bride? Are you getting married in a tropical island like Jamaica, where it can get very hot and humid? Is your wedding outdoors? Is your wedding during the summer time? Do you sweat profusely? If your answer is yes to all these questions, then as a makeup artist, who has done well over two hundred weddings on the beautiful Island of Jamaica, I wholeheartedly recommend airbrush makeup.
What is Airbrush Makeup?
Airbrush makeup 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 not to be confused with the ever so popular "airbrush" tool used on the program "Adobe Photoshop" to smooth texture of the skin.
Here is why I Airbrush makeup is recommended?
1. Its Longevity; airbrush makeup is sweat-proof (this does not mean you wont sweat, it means the makeup wont be affected by sweating), tear-proof and transfer resistant. It is designed to hold up in humid and hot tropical climates. It can last up to 24 hours.
2. Its Coverage; airbrush makeup is light weight but can move from light , medium to full coverage without feeling heavy or looking heavy. When done right, the coverage will still mimic breathable, flawless skin.
3. Airbrush makeup photographs beautifully.
Airbrush makeup is a "work-horse" in the makeup world. It has the ability to last through all the hugging, kissing, crying and sweating that may take place on your wedding day, while still photographing beautifully. Don't get me wrong, the regular makeup can hold its own, but not without our makeup artists whipping up "our secret sauce, " which usually includes setting spray to increase the longevity of the makeup.
