Some brides come to us knowing exactly how they want their makeup to look on their wedding day, whilst other Brides are a little unsure as to what they want and are looking for some guidance. Belladonna Brides get to know our bridal clients. We want to know likes/dislikes, any allergies, your style of wedding, your style of dress so we can offer you the best advice. Our experience means we can suggest what colour eyeshadow best suits your eye colour so your eyes pop for your wedding photographs. We can recommend whether you have a lip gloss or a matt lip colour.
We use only high end makeup products including recognisable brands such as Napoleon, Mac, element two and nars. We ensure our makeup products are suitable for all skin types and importantly will ensure your bridal look lasts throughout the day for all your photo opportunities.
Airbrush v. Traditional Makeup
The most common makeup question we receive from our clients regarding their wedding day makeup is what is the difference between airbrush makeup and traditional makeup, besides price?
For traditional makeup, we use a regular foundation and for airbrush makeup it’s applied with a misting action and a specially formulated foundation. Airbrushing will stay where you put it once it’s set! Airbrushing is water resistant so you can just pat dry those tears! In my opinion, Airbrush Makeup gives a flawless, glowing result and is durable to last through the entire day and into the wedding night, giving you a picture perfect look.
Traditional Makeup is the use and application of your regular liquid foundation (what you would use at home), applied using a foundation brush, sponge, or a duo fiber brush. Traditional foundation is a lot more thicker in consistency. It takes almost double the amount of time to apply on the skin. There is a wide range of different foundations, light-full coverage for your preference.
With Airbrush Makeup Application the makeup mixes with air that is supplied to the airbrush through a compressor and is released through the nozzle as a very fine mist. You can imagine the small particles being like little micro bits of colour, which look perfectly blended and natural. By using the airbrush you apply the makeup in a very thin layer. The makeup layer is only one tenth to one third as thick as when you do it by hand, so it is perfect for Brides that do not like the feeling of makeup on or a heavy looking foundation. Your foundation will dry in just a few seconds and once it hits the skin it can last for up to forty eight hours without smudging or running. If you rub it or someone else hugs or kisses you, it still will stay in place giving you a flawless light feeling foundation that is quick setting and long lasting.
