Last Friday (August 4, 2017), I was Kate Pierson of the B52’s makeup artist for “It’s a Festival Dance Party with the World’s Greatest Party Band, The B-52’s” at the Festival of Sandpoint. It was a great pleasure and honor to work with such a legend. The B-52’s – Forty years into their career with over 20 million albums sold, there can be no doubt as to why they remain one of rock music’s most beloved and enduring bands.

Probably the question I get asked the most is about the differences and benefits of airbrush makeup vs traditional makeup. There is a lot of misinformation about the true advantages of airbrushing.
I have over 15 years in both traditional and airbrush makeup. I don’t want to start a debate on which is better. Each styles has it’s place and time. However, your wedding day is a completely different, unique and special event and so are those high definition wedding photos you will cherish for a lifetime. Because of this, you want the method that is the best for this special event, long lasting and in my opinion, that is airbrushing.
Yes, airbrushing can cost more; however, on your special day the additional cost of airbrushed makeup is really small in the grand scope of wedding costs. When you take into account all of the advantages which an experienced, professional airbrush makeup artist can provide you, you will agree that it is the best choice. Some of these advantages include: goes on light, even, natural, waterproof, holds much longer in any type of weather especially hot and looks fantastic in your high definition wedding photos.
Check out the articles below which provide excellent explanations and the pros and cons (if any) of airbrushing vs traditional makeup. If you have any questions about this or want to set up a trial run to experience these benefits yourself, please feel free to contact me.

Shasta Hankins Spokane bridal makeup was featured in Apple Brides a few days ago for Kate and Joe’s stunning and amazing wedding at the Fox Theater. The wedding featured an Art Deco vintage era theme, think “Great Gatsby” 1920’s style. Shasta applied makeup to not only to fit the time period of style and elegance but to bring out the fun of the 1920s.
The 1920s was the beginning of the beauty culture in America. This was the time period where women had a lot of fun with makeup- blushes, powders and lipstick. With Kate’s beautiful complexion, Shasta used airbrush makeup to bring out her natural skin tone while highlighting the eyes and the lips to bring out the era’s natural beauty look. The red lips create a dramatic, feminine look while providing the stark contrast with her fair skin to give it that “pop”! It really brings out her smile in the beautiful photos by Ifong Chen.
