Airbrush Flower Tattoo, by Natalie Barnes
*We sell the self adhesive, custom made, disposable, airbrush stencils used to paint the tattoos in these pictures, in a variety of generic styles, as well as words and names in any size and font, and, custom made stencils, if you supply the art work, exclusively from Photographixx and Bodyworks.
The most rewarding service I offer is teaching aspiring and accomplished make up artists, how to do airbrush make up, temporary tattoos, tanning, custom color matching, and body make up and cover up.
I have so many students from the Atlanta area, and I am always asked why I teach something that would create competition for myself, especially when I teach my students how to build a very successful website, like my own, which they should be able to use as their only source of advertising. My only response, is that, one, there is so much work to go around for everybody, and I even have to turn down work because I am so busy some times, and, two, because, unless my students are successful, chances are that I didn’t do a good enough job. So, in fact, I even try to get my students work, either, on jobs I can not do, or for which I need an assistant, or in some of the salons and day spas, or TV studios, where I taught the staff the art of airbrush make up, airbrush tanning, body make up and tattoo cover up.
I offer one on one, very hands on classes in airbrush and conventional make up, depending on what you want to learn. My initial airbrush class includes, a full face, airbrush make up application, including, foundation, high lighter, blush and eye make up application. The initial class also includes, instructions on owning, cleaning and operating your equipment, trouble shooting, and designing and hosting a very successful website. Subsequent classes, include, wedding and bridal make up, conventional make up, airbrush tanning, paint on, airbrush and crystal body art, and temporary tattoos, eyelash extensions, bald caps and bruises, and custom color matching, body make up and cover up of skin conditions, acne, acne scarring, spider veins, stretch marks, tattoos, Melasma, or just reducing the appearance of cellulite and/or, giving the body the appearance of beautiful, flawless skin. *(see page on Body Makeup and Cover up) I also will go through your make up kit with you or go through a list of make up and supplies you will need for a professional make up kit.
I have had dozens of students who are either accomplished or aspiring, freelance make up artists, or who are already working in salons and day spas, cruise ships, or in television studios. They come from Atlanta, and from all over the United States for classes.
I have had very talented students who took a few classes less than a year ago, and assisted me on my jobs when ever possible , who are now making a living at it, (although, it does require a lot of hard work and perseverance). (References are available)
Although air brush make up is not new to me, ( I have been doing it and teaching it, since 1992, because my family owns a business that makes and sells airbrush equipment, and 3 lines of our own, exclusive air brush make up, which is second to none). It is still very new in the beauty, wedding, and entertainment industries. Although it is growing, it is still a novelty and you will still be one of the few make up artists that offer air brush make up to their clients. Also, when people ask for airbrush make up, they are typically referring to the foundation being airbrushed only. However, I will be teaching you how to do a full face, air brush make up application, including applying all the make up by airbrush, except for eye liner and lip liner and lip stick. This will make you even more in demand, and your prices will be higher, for a full face, airbrush make up application.
I take teaching and my students, very seriously and have developed close, ongoing friendships and relationships, with most of them. I am always available to help them trouble shoot, answer any questions and help them get work, when ever possible. My students are also welcome to come and observe or assist me on most of my jobs, one student at a time.
I look forward to introducing you to the exciting world of airbrush and conventional make up, air brush tanning, theatrical make up, custom color matching, body make up and cover up, airbrush and ultra realistic, paint on, and crystal, temporary tattoos and body art.
Thank you so very much I really enjoyed myself. I had such a great time. Everyone said you actually worked on your B-Day. I told everyone that this is something that I really actually enjoyed doing so it didn’t feel like work. Thank you for your time a and patience I really learned a lot from you and the experience was great. I am so excited to get started so just let me know about the jobs and I will be there. Those brownies and shrimp were great. I can still taste it… So I am still thinking the 17th and 18th of next month for more classes. I will let you know if tax season let up if so I may be there before. Thanks again for you time… I really enjoyed it…
It’s been very hectic around Halo, but things are going amazingly well now as we’ve adapted to many new changes within the business. I am now the Director of Makeup at Halo, and I have 2 girls I am training with manual makeup. But I am very interested in having them trained by you with airbrushing. I’d love for everyone on our team to be educated and certified by the same instructor. I learned so much in my airbrush makeup class and I feel the girls will benefit from it. I know for a fact one of them wants to invest in all of the equipment, the other girl I’m not sure yet. I was going to see how much it would cost if both of them came to Atlanta for the same class I came for. Could there by a discount of some sort for them both coming?
I will talk to the other girl and see if she’d like to invest in the equipment. It would probably be early august when they would be looking to take the class.
