The Benefits of Airbrush Makeup

We have done a few posts on airbrush makeup and MYD training with airbrush makeup. Lately we’ve been getting quite a few questions about what products we use at  MYD because brides are concerned about finding that balance between not enough product (and having it wear off) and having it look cakey.

That’s why we love airbrush makeup so much! It is so lightweight and natural looking. It can cover up any discoloration, it will even out skin tone and it will last all day! It looks so amazing in photos, and that is why we highly recommend airbrush makeup to our brides.

Airbrush makeup works on all skin types, textures and can be used on any skin color. Check out the photos below {courtesy of WeddingWire} to see these beautiful ladies before and after airbrush makeup.

Summer Bikini-Body Ready

Are any of you out there freaking out about having to get in a bathing suit in the next few weeks?! I am! Jeremy and I have our 1 year anniversary (so soon, right?!) creeping up on us the weekend of Memorial Day. We have planned a short trip out of town to celebrate (the rest of the moolah is going to housing stuff, yay!!) and of course, we will be by a pool at some point. So…aside from the obvious need to self tan so that I don’t scare all the little children by the pool with my ghastly coloring I need a little help with the leg and thigh department! 🙂 So, I have enlisted the troops!

I am currently using Clarins High Definition Body Lift from ankles to waist to help with circulation and tightening up the thigh area. I have found over the years that this product also helps to reduce the look of spider veins, too. It by no means gets rid of them…just helps to make them look less pronounced. This product is awesome if you’re going out in a skirt or shorts and need that immediate tightening effect, too!

In addition to the Clarins product I am seriously contemplating giving Bliss a go at my “problem spots”. I have seen these items in stores like Sephora, Nordstrom and Ulta for years but never ventured out to try them. What do you all think? Has anyone out there given them a whirl and are they worth the money? I’ll be so happy to hear from you! Here they are:
