As an award winning Bridal Makeup Artist covering the North West of England and North Wales, I am trained in Airbrush Makeup application. I also work for a well known Airbrush Makeup brand, on a freelance basis, teaching to college students who are studying makeup and beauty.
Why do I offer Airbrush Make-up? It was designed for HD TV and is required because the skin needs to look perfect in front of the high definition cameras, and the makeup finish needs to be able to withstand hours of filming and hot lights.
However, the make-up is also excellent for bridal use, and the reason for this is because it is long wearing and requires no touch ups, so a bride can be assured that it will last from the moment I apply it, right through the day to the end of the partying at the night time celebrations. It is waterproof, so it will withstand the tears from the day and if it’s a hot day it will still stay perfect even if the bride perspires.
So; with it being able to withstand all that the day throws at it and still stay perfect, it also looks amazing on camera and it can be customised to offer whatever coverage the bride requires, so if the bride wants a fuller coverage and strong contour or she wants natural and almost a tinted moisturiser type of cover, then it can be done all depending on how I layer it.
It’s camera friendly and does not cause flash back from the Photographers flash. Many foundations contain SPF and this product and the Photographers flash do not mix well, so when you see a bride with a whiter face than her body, this is because the makeup professional has not taken this into consideration; what might look great to the naked eye does not always look that wonderful on the wedding photos. Airbase does not cause this issue.
It is amazing for Brides-to-Be with any skin issues, because it covers any redness, acne scarring and rosacea like nothing else because it is so super fine and covers in a seamless veil; so if you were to look closely you would think it was perfect skin and not cakey makeup that people tend to use on skin issues. The photo of the ‘before’ and ‘after’ is my lovely sister Jayne who suffers from Rosacea and in her teens had acne, so her skin is very red and shows small pimples without make-up, but with the airbase you can not even tell she has it and the photo of the ‘after’ is not filtered or altered in any way.
Airbase Makeup also covers tattoos. As tattoos are very trendy and very current, many of my brides have come to me with a tattoo that they love, however on the day they want it covering for whatever issue, the most common being Grandparents who would not approve.
So, from reading this blog you can now see why I offer this service to my brides and why it really is the best choice for many of them. However, there are skin types I do not recommend it for and in my kit I have many other excellent base choices.
