This technique was born out of necessity as camera quality increased and so did the quality of pictures. It’s a simple technique that uses the normal method of applying makeup. The only difference is that the products used for this makeup contain ingredients like mica, silicon, quartz, or crystals that help diffuse the light that is captured by the camera and gives the face an even tone look that hides any blemishes. This makeup is best suited for brides with visible pores, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. This technique is the perfect balance between full coverage while being light and natural-looking at the same time. In popular, bridal makeup price starts from 1.5k and the HD makeup price can cost up to 18k. Further, using products like the makeup forever HD foundation gives you a matt, long-lasting finish which avoids cakey looks.

Similar to the HD makeup technique, airbrush makeup prices, and packages in salons like range from anywhere between 16k to 20k.
