Today’s vendor feature is all about the makeup for your wedding day! Specifically talking about airbrush makeup! Pam, from Take 45 Airbrush Makeup Artist, has been in the wedding industry for over 8 years.
1) What made you want to be a makeup artist?
I have always loved makeup ever since I was little. After high school I worked in the dental field for several years before attending The Salon Professional Academy to became a licensed esthetician, and then went to the Aveda Institute to earn my Certificate in Advanced Makeup. With my advanced training and years of experience in the industry, Take 45 offers a truly luxury pampering experience for your wedding day. I will accentuate your natural beauty for a truly flawless look.
2) What has been your favorite part about being an airbrush makeup artist?
I love being able to make a woman feel extra beautiful on one of her biggest moments in her life. When they look in the mirror for the first time, with makeup finished, hair all done and wedding dress on … they have that moment of “I look like a princess!” Best feeling ever!
3) Can you explain what the difference is between traditional makeup and airbrush makeup.
Airbrush makeup is a light-weight makeup applied through an air gun machine that produces a thin, even layer of makeup and creates a very matte finish.
The fine mist of color covers the skin and gives the appearance of a flawless complexion. We will mix foundation colors for a perfect blend to match YOUR skin tone. Since it’s such a fine mist your true skin tone shows through which makes it look more natural and not so much caked on. It will not transfer onto clothing + in professional photographs it looks amazing!
Airbrush makeup is waterproof (bring on those tears!) and it won’t go anywhere until you wash it off. Be sure you don’t wipe away sweat/tears and instead ‘blot’ it away. This will help guarantee your 16 hours of wear.
Traditional makeup can include liquid, cream, or pressed powder that is usually applied with a sponge, brush or finger tips. This makeup is typically not waterproof, will rub off on clothing and will need the occasional touch ups throughout the evening. If applied incorrectly you can get a sloppy cake-like finish.
