What is the difference between Airbrush Make Up and Traditional Make Up?

O.k, so I use a professional Airbrushing Make Up called Airbase Ultra Foundation. This luxurious, light weight foundation is fine for all skin types and is applied through a small airgun on to the skin, completely pain free (it’s just like a spray tan). Not only does this feel lightweight and beautiful but it’s high content of silicone means it doesn’t clog your pores allowing the skin to breathe. Silicone is also heat resistant, non stick and pliable which means your Airbase application will last all day long. No matter what the occasion.

It contains Vitamins A and E which help to reduce fine lines, improve the moisture of the skin and also deactivates the free radicals that age the skin.

When the foundation is sprayed using an airgun it atomises the product making the make up particles very tiny therefore less visible . Hence why it is used a lot for HD TV and films for a buildable coverage with a flawless finish, making this perfect for Bridal Beauty. Airbase is a firm favourite for ITV, Sky and many popular T.V shows such as Dancing On Ice, Strictly Come Dancing and many more.

(Please be aware that after the base has been applied with the airgun the rest of the make up is applied with traditional brushes as the air gun is not allowed around the delicate eye area.)

Michelle Bennett’s safety guidelines will change accordingly, as and when the government update  or change these guidelines to which the client will be informed.

Please note all products are scraped, sanitised, or decanted during the appointment to stop cross contamination. Disposables applicators are used where applicable and brushes a thoroughly cleaned before each client. This has always been my practice.

Do you provide a non obligation bridal Make Up trial?

Yes of course. Non obligation trials are £60 per trial however unfortunately I can not hold your wedding date for you therefore its best to get in quick before your date goes. Please note the trials would be held at Norfolk Beauty Training, 19 Pottergate Norwich, NR2 1DS. I can come to you however a fuel charge may incur depending on your location.


Do you have any photos of your work?

Yes Lots, Check out the Gallery on my website or Follow me on Instagram @ Shellbe.makeup to Keep Up To Date on the Latest News from Michelle Bennett Make Up Artist.


I have booked you for my wedding, when is it best to have the bridal trial and do i come to you or can you come to me? Also my mum and bridesmaids would like a trial? Can you do this as well?

Thank you so much for booking me for your wedding. In my professional opinion I would usually suggest booking your trial in a couple of months before your wedding date so you can confirm the look you want to achieve and it will stay fresh in your mind ahead of your big day.

You can come to me at the salon where I work; Norfolk Beauty Training, 19 Pottergate, Norwich, NR2 1DS. Or I can come to you, however there maybe a small petrol charge depending on your location.

Yes of course your mum and bridesmaids can have trials too.. Bridal party trials are £50 per person or check out my Glam Hen Parties, Where i can come and get you all ready for your Hen party or hen day out? You provide the bubbles and nibbles or the cakes and tea and I will provide the Make Up and Glam! A perfect addition to fun filled day!


Can you recommend any hairdressers you have worked with before?

Yes! Please check out my recommended supplier list on my website.


I have a large Bridal Party, will we have enough time to fit everyone in or do you need an additional Make Up artist to come with you?

I can usually do up to 9 people comfortably on the morning, I will always give you a suggested schedule on how the morning would go and what time I would like to start to get you all done in time in a relaxing environment with time still to spare. No one is ever rushed and I always do touch ups and lip products at the end to make sure everyone, even if you had your make up done first will look immaculate before they leave.

However if you have more than 9 people or would prefer to have an additional make up artist on the morning, I can organise this for you as I have some great Make Up Artist friends that I work with. (Please note additional makeup artist will incur additional costs)


Do you require a deposit to secure my wedding date in your diary? If so how much and where do i find the payment details?

Yes, I do require a £60 non refundable deposit to confirm your date in my diary. The £60 not only confirms your date in my diary but it also covers the cost of the bridal trial in advance. Once the deposit has been paid it is then deducted from your final balance. Details of how to pay the deposit is on the booking form under Terms and Conditions.
