Airbrush Makeup, leave it to the Professionals | Beauty with the Baby | Bridal Makeup Denver

Have I mentioned how absolutely excited about wedding season I am? Trials, trails and more trials are coming up this weekend... and the next and the next. Trials are totally a critical part of the planning. You need to see if you are a fit with me and my style. As well as me to you. I only do airbrush makeup. Airbrush makeup may not be your thing,... yet. But here's why it should be.

I fully believe and can stand behind its super duper staying qualities. It has a silky finish, but can also be matted down a bit with some translucent powder. Its silicon based making it dewy and fresh looking and feeling. It feels like a second skin. It's virtually waterproof. Tears stand no chance. So please, get emotional at your wedding. Kleenexes are purely for show.

Be bold with your eye shadow choices.

Be prepared to take a chance to love some full lashes.

Don't be afraid to take it out of your comfort zone. You don't always have to be natural. A bold lip pop or a full set of lash extensions could really make the whole look pop. 

Remember that the camera will take away a lot of the effects of the makeup that you see yourself in the mirror. I will always be much more heavy handed when photos are being taken. But know that I work with photographers on a daily basis, so I see exactly what should be highlighted. Your skin tone, eye shape, and eye color will have a lot to do with your overall look. So let me do all the work.

You just wear that dress, and walk down that aisle. Let me and my team take care of the rest.

If you would have asked me 10 years ago to put on a lipstick... I would simply say, "lipstick makes me look older." Oh man... how I've come to find out is actually just the opposite. Lipstick will only finish out a look. You can't have bare lips, even if it is just gloss. It can also be the starting point of a new look for you. Then build around that. 

It all comes down to picking the right shade and consistency for your skin tone. There is a TON of brands out there. But I will always fall back on MAC for their wide variety of shades and types. They also outlast most of the competition.

 I actually cannot wait to go lipstick shopping for my brides before their wedding day.

I imagine it's what Ruby feels when I leave my kit open and turn my back.

You moms know what I'm talking about. 

I've found a few random compacts on the floor under the bed or in her kitchen set. So it begins.

From left to right... Ruby Woo (matte-no shine) Plumful (luster-high shine) Myth (satin-medium shine) Viva la Glam Lady Gaga (i would suggest looking at Ellie Gouldings collection. Viva La Glam is limited edition, Sorry girls!)

A lot of the time you can layer them, to give a different affect. This is Myth with Plumful on top of it. 


The best way to find what works for you is to go play! Walk right up to that counter, swatch a few on your hand (with clean hands of a brush) and ask one of the assistants there to help you. They usually know exactly what type (matte, satin, ETC) your personality type will want. 

You can also schedule a makeup lesson with me. It includes a detailed list of the products that would be best for your skin and a tutorial on how exactly to apply that makeup in the look that fits you. 1.5 hours with me and you're on your way to flattering shadow tones, and that pesky wing that everyone's been talking about. 

Stay tuned for a more in depth blog about that wing.
