217Beauty in New Jersey is a team of makeup artists, led by Liz Gizelle. Gizelle, as the website of 217Beauty says, has always been creative and she realized her passion for makeup while working for MAC cosmetics. During her time, as an artist working for MAC, Gizelle discovered two products that would become absolute favourites; the #217 MAC Blending Brush and Red Cherry#217 Lashes. Using 217 which when flipped spell her name, Liz Gizelle began her adventure in the makeup industry as an artist with her own business, 217Beauty.
- HD Airbrush Makeup: In airbrush makeup, the substance are sprayed on the skin using an airbrush that has three parts; a powered compressor that creates an even airflow, a medical hose through which the airflow is projected and controlled and a metal trigger action gun. Airbrush Makeup is the new trend as it can be suited to any type of makeup application by the adjusting the pressure of the flow. Liz Gizelle also recommends it for all brides because:
- Airbrush makeup does clog the pores, but it allows the skin to breathe.
- It is very light and feels natural
- As there is not direct contact between a brush or any other device and the skin, this method is more hygienic and safe.
- Traditional Makeup: Traditional makeup brings about a lot of different textures and finishes that can be used to produce a fresh, glowing look, especially for brides. One of the most important products that are used while doing traditional makeup is the foundation. 217Beauty test all their foundation types to see whether they can be applied on various skin types and what kind of effects can be achieved, how long they last and how heavy do they feel on the skin, and also whether they photograph well under brightly lighted conditions.
