Q: Why is airbrushing makeup better?
A: Airbrush Makeup has been used by celebrities for years to create a flawless finish. Airbrushing photographs beautifully as it is tiny pixels going on the skin, unlike traditional foundations that are one block of colour. Airbrushing is very versatile, you can achieve sheer to full coverage while still looking natural as it mimics the skin's natural texture. Because the Airbrushing we use is silicon based it is water resistant for those wedding day tears of happiness :).
Q: What makeup brands do you use?
A: We use Temptu Pro for the Airbrushing, Pinnacle, Modern Basic, MA.C, Urban Decay, Smash Box, Benefit and a few other tried and tested and true favourites from various companies. All makeup is Hypo-Allergenic and works well with all skin types :)
