Brides, how do you decide between airbrush and traditional makeup application for your wedding?
The answer to this comes down mostly to personal preference and skin type. Traditional makeup application is usually started with a liquid foundation that can be either a sheer to full coverage depending on preference. Translucent powder or a pressed powder is applied over the liquid foundation to set the product in place and help with shine control. Then bronzer, blush, and highlighter will be applied to create dimension and contour the facial features. This type of application is not waterproof, and can be wiped off if someone brushed up against your face while hugging you, or if one too many tears are shed! Of course there are always ways around this and just being a little extra cautious on your special day will save you from any makeup mishaps. The liquid and powder foundation that we use for our brides at Purity is Aveda and its is paraben and cruelty free!
Airbrush makeup is a water based liquid that is evenly sprayed onto the skin with an airbrush gun. The product sets on contact so there is no transfer onto clothes and cannot be rubbed off accidentally. Its water and sweat resistant, it softens fine lines, leaves skin with a dewy illuminating glow, is a vegan formula and is gluten, paraben, silicone, talc and cruelty free. The product can be layered on for either a more sheer coverage to full. The product dries on contact and is light weight so that your skin is able to breathe. After your face is airbrushed our makeup artist will design your eye makeup and finish with any contouring and lip product that you decide on together.
Both products leave our guests and brides looking absolutely stunning, if you are still on the fence of what product might be best for you then schedule an appointment for a makeup trial is the best way to find out. Our makeup artist at Purity will work with you to create your most stunning look for your special day.
