What's the difference between airbrush makeup and traditional makeup?

I am trained in KETT Airbrush techniques (Levels 1, 2 & 3) and know that airbrush application allows for a better end result for all my clients.  It feels very light on the skin which means that each client doesn't walk away with a heavy, 'cakey' makeup feeling. Airbrushing allows me to layer product which means that I can easily do color correction with less product giving each client a flawless complexion.  And most importantly, since we live in a digital age, airbrush makeup can stand up against the scrutiny of HD technology.  From the selfies we take on our IPhones to the professional cameras used by photographers, your makeup will look flawless without looking or feeling like you have makeup on!

Do you work with all ages and skin tones?

Heck yes!  Put grandma in my chair!  I am a trained professional that works with men and women of all ages, sizes and ethnicities.  My kit is not only equipped to work on all humans, but my education has put each of these humans in my chair.  No one person is alike so I'm able to put my knowledge to work on every face in my chair.

Do I need to bring my makeup with me to my trial and/or my wedding day?

No.  If it makes you feel more comfortable to bring your current makeup products with you to a trial, then please feel free to do so.  But, I will not be using any of your products for your makeup application.  My kit is designed to have all sorts of products to make sure I am able to carry out your vision.  Unless you have a specific medical reason to use certain products, there is no need to bring your own makeup with you.  For brides, this is why a trial run is extremely important so we can make sure your needs are being met.

Can you cover up my tattoo that I don't want grandma to see?

Of course!  If there is anything that you need covered up/camouflaged that's not on the face, just let me know.  I understand that there are things you may be uncomfortable showing or that you aren't allowed to show in your place of worship so whatever it is, I've got you!  I have products that are completely waterproof and smudge proof which means it won't rub off on your brand new gown.

She takes her craft seriously, and you can see this by the samples in her portfolio.  She is experienced in stage make up, special events, family photography - any type of look.  For my wedding, Malenda asked for my vision, she made professional suggestions that I would not have considered since it's not my expertise, and she gave me the most beautiful complexion and perfect amount of makeup to highlight my features.  Also, she was extremely sanitary, which I really valued even before the pandemic.
