5 Reasons to Upgrade to Airbrush Makeup for Your Wedding Day.


5 Reasons to Upgrade to Airbrush Makeup for Your Wedding Day:
  1. Texture. It feels like second skin and is perfect for those brides who don’t want to feel they have makeup on. But good news it looks amazing! Makes you camera ready in an instant!
  2. Long wear. It’s water resistant and transfer resistant. The technology in most airbrush makeup formulas makes it so it adheres like skin to the face. When used with proper primers, moisturizers and setting powder it truly it’s unstoppable! So much so I put Temptu’s perfect canvas hydra lock formula to the test at a recent shoot where the model went underwater. And not just a dip like full on swimming! Her face stayed perfect! I’d say you want that in your wedding day!
  3. HD camera approved. I briefly mentioned this is number 1 but I’ll go into more detail. Using an HD makeup formula is so important in today’s use of HD camera and video. You want a smooth finishing and every pore covered for that big day and airbrush makeup is your solution! The way in which the foundation is blown through the gun creates a finishing that looks perfect on camera!
  4. Skill. Airbrush makeup application takes a certain level of skill. When hiring a professional makeup artist, make sure they have a wide range of skills. Learning and mastering airbrush application is such a great skill to have and brings more options to the table for your best day ever!!!! Most makeup artist that offer this service have a few years under their belt and you can trust them with all your makeup need so the day of your wedding.
  5. Investment. Those makeup artist’s who spend money on a good airbrush system see the value in giving you the best of the best! A good airbrush system can cost in upwards of $500. We truly want you to have the best for your best day ever! Investing in our makeup kit is investing in you! An artist who carries good quality products is the artist you want to hire. Professional products require professional skills.
Airbrush makeup may be a bit more expensive than your average makeup application but let me tell you its worth every penny. I will say there is only one downfall to airbrush and depending on the formula it is not well suited for some mature skin types. I will say though the new Temptu Hydra Lock formula is perfect for mature skin and all the above. It’s my new secret weapon! So for all my fellow artists reading this, the sky is the limit with the Hydra Lock Formula!
I hope this helps in your makeup decision for your big day! Much luck to you!
Ps. In no way am I sponsored by Temptu or any airbrush makeup company. I truly believe in these products and spend my hard earned makeup money on them. I know I can trust them to perform to the quality I want them to and trust them to make my client look their absolute best!

JULIANNA


Hello Beauties!

I just realized I never shared this amazing fashion shoot with the beautiful JULIANNA. The final product sure did blow me away, thanks to Sufia Huq Photo. Months of planning and collaboration went into this day. Picking out color palettes, locations, outfits. But most importantly finding the perfect model. Honestly once we started shooting and the lighting, the colors, the style, Julianna, it literally all collided in one moment and my breath was taken away. Also can I just say, this was Julianna’s first shoot modeling and WOW she killed it! There is something super intense about the creative process. An intensity that is filled with hope yet fear. Hope that everything you had in your mind comes fourth and then fear that it may just totally flop! Well this was a creative release that was well worth the pressure!

For this makeup look I wanted Julianna’s skin to shine! Every curve of her face to have definition and glow. My product of choice was, Temptu, silicon base airbrush makeup. I used all airbrush, foundation, blush, highlight, contour and eye shadow. In some of the last photos I added some glitter lips, seriously, SO FUN! I switched up her lip color three times. See if you can spot it. 😉 I also styled her hair, which those that know me, I do NOT do hair. But for this I wanted a super simple look with all focus on her face. I went with a middle part slicked back low pony tail and it totally completed her look more than I realized once we got on location to shoot, it fit perfect!

The vintage fur coat was actually my nana’s whom my mom now owns and lent us, truly the shoot wouldn’t have been the same without it! Fur coat for the win! I love this shoot because it can be used for spring/summer and fall/winter fashion. The crushed velvet gold dress perfect for spring and so versatile! And can we just talk about the red velvet block heels, all sorts of YES! I wish I bought a pair in my size!

In the middle of shooting we noticed a car that fit perfectly into our color palette and well the guy was kind enough to let us shoot with its awesome paint job, lifted spinners and all. Oh Orlando, I love you. I hope you enjoyed my breakdown of this shoot, now go enjoy some photos… Let me know what you think.

The stuff dreams are made of….


Hello Everyone! Today I am so excited to share the details of an amazing shoot I was privileged to plan and help style with the amazing Erika Reiner Photography and Model, Wendy Biagioni. It turned out to be one for the memory books! Makeup for me has always been a journey of self expression and learning professional techniques to take my career to the next level and this shoot did ALL that and more! I took on my first under water photo shoot and well, not to brag, killed it!

A lot of makeup artistry is research. Research for the look, the style and the technique. This shoot required a whole new skill set from me, under water, full WATER PROOF makeup! And well as a Beauty Makeup Artist I was ready take on the challenge. It all started with a phone call from a photographer who happened to find me on Instagram ( Can I just say how grateful I am for social media! ) we talked and hit off for almost an hour, wow hello meet cute! Then began the planning to find the perfect products to tackle this challenge.

I’m used to using the amazing and industry standard TEMPTU airbrush makeup. So for this challenge due to some research I decided to give their new formula a try called Temptu Hydra lock Perfecta Base Airbrush Foundation. I have always been a big fan of Temptu Airbrush makeup in the SB ( silicon base) formula but this new stuff from TEMPTU is the bomb! When Wendy came out of the water looking perfect, I got goosebumps and it took everything in me to not say as loud as I could, “YES I DID IT!!!!!!” As a makeup artist I am constantly critiquing myself and wanting to grow. More work comes from more practice and more knowledge and most importantly more experience. Needless to say this shoot did just that and more. Soooooo all that to say this shoot was the stuff dreams are made of and honestly there is WAY more where this came from…. Now go enjoy these amazing photos captured by the amazing Erika Reiner Photography.
