what is Airbrush Makeup

Airbrush makeup is a light weight mist that comes out thru a small spray gun machine. It creates an even layer of makeup and a glowy natural skin finish.  

We use Temptu airbrush makeup which is silicone-based, and is one of the best top performers in the airbrush industry.

  • hypoallergenic & gluten free

  • skin like natural finish

  • transfer resistant

  • Last up to 24 hours without you having to touch it up


  • It can enhance dry skin & patches

  • Also villus hair also known as the fine thin hair on your face

Even with both disadvantages there can be a work around. With dry skin if you start a daily skin care routine along with weekly exfoliation you can minimize dry skin and patches. For the best treatment for you we recommend speaking to your dermatologist or esthetician .

If you have vellus hair on your face you can opt in to wax or shave this areas. For best results we ask that you have it done months before your event to make sure no irritation occurs.

What is Traditional Makeup?

Traditional makeup is any foundation which is applied with fingers, a sponge or makeup brushes. It does not matter if it is powder, cream or liquid.

We use are top quality foundations. You don’t have to worry that your makeup will run if  you sweat or cry. As long as you don’t smear, scratch or rub your face with your hands, you can expect it to last up 24 hours. You will need an occasional touch up to keep your makeup flawless all night. It definitely requires touching up with blotting papers and/or powder.
