Airbrush vs Traditional Makeup
I have a lot of brides asking me what the difference is between airbrush makeup application and traditional makeup application? So I’m here to shed light on this subject and break down the differences between the two.
Personally, both airbrush and traditional makeup have their pros and cons. And when you’re dealing with a professional makeup artist both should be able to withstand the test of time (on your big day). I have done many brides with traditional techniques, and I’ve also done many brides with airbrushing techniques. Depending on which feels best is for the bride to decide herself. So I can’t say one outweighs the other by a long shot – there are pluses and minuses to both.
So read on and decide for yourself which one you think is best for you.
So as you would suspect, the application of traditional foundation will be of thicker consistency. And depending on the artist, it usually takes a bit longer applying it on the skin as well. However, because there are many more cosmetics companies developing traditional foundation, there is an array of products that may be used spanning from light to full coverage, oil-free, etc.
Because of the fine misted spray, airbrush makeup provides a flawless coverage, evening out skin’s imperfections while still allowing your skin to breath. (Yes, it’s really THAT light weight!) The final result gives you a very natural, yet very finished and polished look.
With all that said, if you do have a brilliant artist, their traditional makeup application could be at par with airbrush makeup applications when using the right tools, products and techniques. Contact me so we can both decide which option is best for you.
