I style photo shoots as part of my job so I get to see top make-up artists at work all the time, and I can safely say that Julie from The Make-up Studio is definitely among them. She did my bridal make-up and the application was seriously flawless and with my acne prone skin that is no easy feat! While on the pricey side, the result was totally worth it. She uses the airbrush method, which is the preferred method for high definition TV because it doesn’t show steaks or look cakey, but still gives great coverage. The look is natural, polished and most importantly lasts all day (without getting greasy and shiny). I liked the finished look way better than any previous professional make-up application I’ve had. I find products like Mac, which many artists use, look caked on and greasy, especially by the end of the day. That could just be my skin though!
I also found the girls in The Make-up Studio really easy to work with. They were very accommodating to my unique situation (the whole planning a wedding from abroad thing). With the hustle and bustle of the wedding day, the 2 hours I spent at the Studio were like bliss!
In short, I think that airbrushing is perfect for the long, picture filled wedding day. I can’t recommend Julie or the method more highly. The adorable Studio is right downtown, on Bernard.
Here are a couple photos of Julie applying my wedding day make-up. The second one shows her working miracles with her airbrusher!
