Makeup Tip Monday: Airbrush vs. Traditional Application

Today's #makeuptipmonday is more of an educational piece for when you have your Makeup professionally done. One of the questions we ask our brides during our first phone call, is their preference/experience when it comes to Airbrush or Traditional Application of foundation.

This isn't because there's a large difference in the finished look. Quite the opposite! Achieving a flawless complexion that will last alllllll day can be done with either and both methods. The difference, is simply the form of application. The WAY the makeup is applied. You can use "airbrush foundation" on a beauty blender, and apply it by hand!

So why do we ask, then? Because comfort of our clients matters. And sometimes, if someone has had a positive, or negative experience in the past with one form or the other, that's what they're drawn to...or. away from.

In a phone call with a #jolbride, Murrey, (who is getting married very soon!) she had the clarity to articulate essentially, "I've had airbrush makeup before, and it's not that I didn't like the airbrush, I just didn't care for the way my makeup looked as a whole." BINGO. But our negative experiences can often influence the way we feel about something altogether. The same concept goes for False Lashes! There are hundreds and hundreds of different kinds. Lengths. Density's. Just because you hated them once, doesn't mean you hate all False Lashes! And just because you liked them once, doesn't mean you like them all either!!

This is one of the reasons Trial Runs are essential. After getting a feel for the past experiences, and overall personality of our brides, we get to play around with various looks and methods to land with the one that makes each #jolbride feel THE MOST comfortable. Looking beautiful is a must. Feeling comfortable is equally as essential.
