Go for a pop of color

Wearing a bold lip on your wedding day doesn’t have to be something to shy away from. Its an easy way to make a statement that can be classic and timeless if done properly. Here are some tips to pulling off a bold hue on your lips.
1. Keep the eyes rather simple and neutral. A neutral eye, simple liner and natural lashes will let your lips be front and center. It will look more timeless in photos as well.
2. Keep the skin fresh and clean. Its tempting to go with full contouring and highlighting but that can distract from a classic look. Luminous, glowing skin with only make you look fresh and awake ok your big day.
3. Opt for a matte finish over a glossy red lip. Glossy red lips can be more messy than a matte color. If applied correctly, a matte lip will act like a stain through the night and will require less touch ups.
4. The most important tip is to discuss it with your makeup artist at your trial. There are to many options for red or bold lips. Talk to them about what you are comfortable with and they will recommend the best option for you. What is bold for some is tame for others, so a trial is the perfect time to try on some different shades. Update your artist after wearing the lip color so they can get you the right shade for touch ups on your big day.

Airbrush Makeup

At Beauty Entourage we get so many questions as to what the difference between airbrush makeup and traditional makeup.  We are HUGE fans of airbrush makeup especially for special events because airbrush creates a flawfless, longer-lasting look for the entire day & night.  Airbrush makeup is also hypoallergenic, fragrance free, oil and alcohol free, so its safe for even the most sensitive skin, no matter what age or condition.

Airbrush makeup is water-resistant so perspiration and tears are no longer a cosmetic problem. Simply blotting, not wiping away moisture will leave the Airbrush makeup in place without a streak. With over 16 hours of wear, Airbrush makeup will not fade or rub off on clothes, but yet can be easily washed away with soap and water.  Airbrush also feels very lightweight and so many of our clients say it feels like wearing no makeup at all yet the coverage is phenomenal and flawless. If you have a night full of dancing, a photo shoot, or simply want your makeup to be perfect all night long, airbrush is the way to go.  Give us a call or stop in to learn more! 

Below are some of our client’s that are lovers of our airbrush makeup!  Our makeup team does an awesome job with airbrush since they have all been specially trained and application of false lashes just seals the look! 🙂
