FAQs on Bridal Makeup – Questions from BRIDES-TO-BE

Is there any difference in High Definition makeup and Airbrush Makeup, if yes, how they differ?
Yes and No.
Yes, because High definition makeup is done by using High Definition cosmetics. HD cosmetics are different from non HD cosmetics in their texture, finish and formulation. HD cosmetics have become a prerequisite for makeup because the cameras & lenses used for filming and photography are high definition and therefore HD cosmetics gives the right amount of coverage and natural look that looks appropriate on camera. The application and technique of using HD products is different from using non-HD cosmetics and therefore, proper training is required to use them.

No, because All HD makeup is not Airbrush. Airbrush is a tool used for applying makeup that gives a flawless finish. Airbrush makeup uses HD products and is a part of HD makeup. HD makeup is a much wider term than Airbrush makeup. ALL AIRBRUSH MAKEUP IS HD BUT ALL HD MAKEUP IS NOT DONE BY AIRBRUSH.

I see beautiful photographs of bridal makeup online. What should I expect when I am getting my bridal makeup done?
All that you see on the internet is not always unedited. Most of the magazine, movie and makeup pictures that you see on the internet is edited, sometimes extensively. It is a good idea to show the artist the kind of makeup you would like to get but not to expect to look exactly what you see in pictures because every face is unique and one should simply try to look their best and not like a copy of someone else.

Tanvi KG always try to understand the client and her tastes before creating a bespoke bridal look for her. Her USP is her unique style of harmonising the Bride’s expectations and her personal style to create a flawless, sophisticated ISTYLE BRIDE.
