Do you airbrush? And what is the difference between airbrush and traditional application?
Yes, and I really do love it. Essentially airbrush and traditional makeup is a way of application. Airbrush makeup typically using an air compressor to push foundation through the airbrush gun. Traditional makeup uses a variety of formulas from cream, to liquid to gel. In both cases, the application can be very sheer or build up to fuller coverage.

When should I book my bridal preview?
I personally like to book previews 3-4 months prior to the big day. So that it's not too close the wedding date, that it could feel last minute, and not too far before the wedding as hair of skin conditions could change during that time.
