HD Makeup Vs Airbrush Makeup: Which One Is Better for Bridal Makeup?
Oh My God! This is a horrible debate and many have written lengths about each one of these leaving you gawking – What was that? Which one should I really go for?
My answer for all you brides is – Leave it to your makeup artist, assuming you have chosen the best Bridal Makeup Artist for yourself.
Read the blog on choosing the best makeup artist for your wedding !
Hold on, what if your makeup artist suggest Air Brush Makeup only since its more profitable for them?
Well, This could be a possibility if you have not chosen the right makeup artist. A genuine makeup artist will lay out a plan for you depending on your budget, skin type, personality, likes & dislikes. Makeup artist would also ensure that the makeup suggestions are according to your cultural and regional influence. If you have trust issues with your artist and already asking this question What if she charges me more and recommends Airbrush then your very selection of the makeup artist is questionable.
However it’s always good to know few technicalities before the blind trust turns into a doubt and in this article I will attempt to explain you the difference between HD Makeup and Airbrush Makeup.
Difference Between Airbrush Makeup & HD Makeup
Setting the context
Airbrush Makeup for wedding is NOT a new style, this has been around in the industry since 1930s or even earlier. It comes with a Machine that pumps air along with the makeup product on the skin and eliminates the use of brushes, sponges and myriads of other makeup tools. Millions of dots are created on the face creating a layer that binds the top layer of the skin.
HD Makeup for brides is a style which is differentiated by the kind of makeup products used. In this type of makeup brushes, sponges and everything else is used to give you a flawless High Definition finish. Regular makeup is done the same way but with so-called Drug store or inferior products which doesn’t give that full coverage and the crisp look.
Now imagine you are a Painter, What is the first thing you imagine? Of course, the canvas and different colors on it, not to mention the painter himself smudged with colors and holding a BRUSH!
Again imagine a Graffiti Art, You see walls? You see Che Guevara or the worse “End is near! “With some guys wearing baseball caps and skateboards. Scandalous!
How can you compare both of them on the same line, A painter is a painter with a BRUSH and a Graffiti art is an art with a Spray Can. Both are awesome but the choice is yours. Now if you and ask a Painter to create a painting using a spray can you will be fooling yourself right?
Makeup by itself is a luxury and it comes with its own experience enhancers. Oh, I don’t want to be touched – Air Brush is good for you then! But it’s out of my budget – HD Makeup is for you then! You see there can be a thousand reasons why you will not be recommended a certain style of makeup.
Airbrush makeup for brides is a heavily marketed super hyped Makeup Art that has created curiosity and sometimes a status symbol just like an iPhone among our clients. They will come to you asking for Airbrush makeup and when they hear the price they will ask you to open up a complete Wikipedia on how it works. Difficult to handle right?
Let us get to it and I promise I will keep it short. Again our suggestion is to let the Makeup Artist decide whether you should go for Airbrush Makeup or HD Makeup
Airbrush Makeup Benefits
- Airbrush sprayed makeup products are so tiny that they literally fill the pore and small wrinkles flawlessly.
- Stays longer on your face (8-12 hours)
- Blurs the skin out giving you great outcomes in your wedding photos
- Customize the coverage – With Airbrush one can decide how many layers the client needs to achieve that skin tone. It feels light!
- Water-resistant – I find it as a marketing gimmick. Hopefully, you are not getting married in rain or in the pool. Tears will not wash away your makeup and it will remain intact.
- Hygienic – After the COVID-19 outbreak hygiene is a deciding factor, since there is no touch involved. Social distancing in a social gathering, weird!
HD Makeup Benefits
- Natural Look – You will not get a Barbie look with HD makeup because you don’t want to look like flawless Barbie, because you are not a Barbie. HD makeup looks more natural.
- Touch-ups – It’s a lot easier to do touch up in HD makeup.
- Acne and Bumps – If you have a lot of acne and bumps on your face then HD makeup may be your choice
- More creative room – An artist gets more room to create, remember the Painter and Graffiti analogy I gave earlier. Your eye makeup will never look better in HD style.
- Product choice – You get a tremendous amount of room to choose the world’s best product from MAC to Armani to HUDA Beauty.
- Affordable – HD Makeup is still expensive but more affordable compared to Airbrush.
Now I am not going to specifically talk about the CONS as most of the articles do. However I will tell you this that not all face and skin types are suitable for one kind of makeup. Also not every occasion is suitable to have just one style of makeup HD Makeup or Airbrush makeup.
Here are the steps we recommend you to follow
Step Number 1:
Choose the best and most experienced makeup artist with a good attitude.
Step Number 2:
Tell her you are excited about Airbrush makeup if you have the budget.
Step Number 3:
If your makeup artist immediately tells you YES let’s do Airbrush makeup without even seeing you on a Trial then there is a problem. Go to Step Number 1 and choose another artist.
Step Number 4:
Your makeup artist will hear you out and would call you for a trial to discuss your likings and of course your skin and the number of occasion.
Step Number 5:
Makeup Artist will then give you a trial for HD and Airbrush Makeup
Step Number 6:
If you don’t see much of a difference go for the cheaper option.
Step Number 7:
If at all you really want Airbrush anyways then choose one of the events for Airbrush and the other one for HD Makeup. This cocktail method will satiate your excitement and would of course control your budget.
This is exactly what we recommend to our clients. Don’t be damned by what everyone else is doing focus on what looks good on your and how deep your pocket can be.
Make the right choice! A good experienced makeup artist can give you any finish you want Airbrush and HD or whatever is such a lie.
