Beautiful Wedding Makeup
We consider ourselves to be makeup magicians and we even have our own range of signature Powder Room products (with ultra romantic names including “I Do”, “Aisle Be Yours” and “Fairytale”) but we do call upon a little help from some of our dearest friends, Laura Mercier, Stila, Nars, Mac, Estee Lauder, Yves Saint Lauren, Lancome, Benefit, Napoleon and ID Minerals. Okay, enough with the name dropping!
Should I have lash extensions?
Lashes, lashes, lashes… no longer reserved for Broadway Babes and Centre Stage Sweethearts, we think you are truly deserving of the deluxe treatment too. The beauty of lashes is that they are artfully applied by our premier makeup artists in a range of ways from oh so subtle to dramatically daring.
What is one of The Powder Room’s best kept secrets?
We live in a world that demands results… now… do you want instant gratification? We can deliver. Let me introduce Airstocking. Varicose veins, tan lines, redness on the décolletage, pigmentation - now we see you, now we don’t! The ultra fine pigment that is Airstocking is sneakily effective, no one will even know you’re wearing it, unless of course you wish to share the gospel with your bridal party, we think they might like it too!
What is Airbrush Foundation?
Airbrush foundation is a water-based, oil-free and long wearing makeup that is applied through an airbrush, using a small air compressor. It is usually used for high definition film.
As it is applied, it feels like a mist hitting your face and dries into a smooth, flawless finish that feels very light on the skin. It is long wearing, non-transferable, and ideal for high heat, humidity, weddings and dancing all night!
Airbrush foundation is especially good for people with oilier skin, or blemished skin as it tends to stay put longer.
What is the difference between Airbrush and Traditional Foundation? With a combination of the techniques used by our makeup artist, long wearing foundations, primers, and setting sprays - the same long wearing effect can be achieved with traditional makeup. If you prefer a very "dewy" look, traditional makeup may be the way to go. Airbrush foundation is a slightly more matte look.
As with any makeup medium, The Powder Room can control the coverage from sheer to full coverage with both airbrush or traditional foundations.
Ultimately, it is what you feel most comfortable with and the type of finish you would like.
