Dinair Artist Spotlight: Angie Strunk

After the Master Workshop here at Dinair, we caught up with one of the students and asked her a few questions about what she thinks about Dinair and the workshop!

Q: Tell us  little bit about yourself and what you do:

A: My Name is Angie Strunk and I am a Dinair User and now airbrush specialist. I’ve been using it for about 2 years now, and I discovered it about 3 years ago. Full time, I’m in sales and I do Dinair airbrush makeup on the side as a freelance artist.

Q: What was your favorite part of the workshop?

A: Learning from the professionals here and I think that’s what really sets Dinair apart from other products that I’ve used and other brands that I’ve used. It’s the hands-on 101 training and you can ask any questions – they’ve seen it all and they really help us to learn how to handle ever situation.

Q: How will the things you learned in the workshop help your business/career?

A: I have just started doing outside of friends and family, in terms of clients, and I think just being able to.. well they talked about business practices in the workshop, that’s really going to help me, because I had never really paid a lot of thought into how to verbiage contracts, how to manage and set expectations. So that was probably the key take away from today’s class.

Q: What do you think about Dinair makeup?

A: I love it! It changed my whole life. So I discovered it years ago through a search engine and I was looking for something that was going to be able to withstand every day wear and be long lasting and not have to have touch ups.

Q: Do you plan on using Dinair for bridal makeup?

A: Absolutely, I wouldnt use any other line or any other brand. I’ve used traditional makeup in the past, but since discovering Dinair, I’ve had a couple of brides and they just absolutely rave about it! They said it felt like they were wearing nothing and it felt natural and they had it on all day – didn’t have to touch up, and it held up through photography lights and receptions and cake and dancing,

A message from Angie:

I was diagnosed with a very rare and painful vascular condition after nearly losing both legs back in late 2003. I was in college at the time, so it hadn’t even heard of camouflage makeup or solutions for my condition.

Some makeup artist friends told me about camouflage makeup-so my godmother and I started researching. I discovered a professional state makeup company that offered camouflage makeup and I loved the results, but hated that it oxidized quickly or under certain conditions, and it would transfer and rub off very easily onto fabrics and furniture. Very embarrassing and costly. 

I found a paramedical camouflage airbrush makeup in the Los Angeles area and loved the results, but it was expensive, it oxidized, and because of the nerve damage from skin grafts and old wounds, the strong alcohol base was far too harsh on my skin and caused irritation and itchiness which caused me to scratch and form new wounds. I went to Google and searched for tattoo cover makeup and Dinair Xtreme popped up. I read that it was a water-based, no budge, no worry formula and ordered it. I quickly realized I did not have the right equipment, so the makeup sat for about a year until my hairdresser heard me talk about it and said that she had an older Dinair system from cosmetology school that she wasn’t going to use, and gave it to me as a gift. It was a totally different system and I didn’t know how to use it, so I enrolled for the 2-Day Pro Workshop, and quickly realized I could utilize airbrush for my freelance Bridal clients! 

Dinair has not only changed my life through providing confidence that I otherwise couldn’t find in other camouflage makeups, but now I’m able to serve a much broader base of clients across all categories-I’ve even been able to work on a client with the same condition and her legs had even more intense hyper pigmentation and her wounds were less healed
