Before we delve deep into the art of air kissing let us take a look at its history o evolution. Air kissing was developed as a style to greet someone who you don’t want to greet otherwise. It is done to portray an amicable coexistence between two people. Hence, you mustn’t perform air kissing with people who are close to you. You may only air kiss one for who you have no real feelings. With that in mind let us now check out the following steps.
Declare the person’s name: Traditionally one may declare the person’s name loudly before air kissing. You should react in a way as if you are really thrilled in seeing them.
Position yourself: Ideally in an air kiss there shouldn’t be any skin touch. Although in some kisses the checks touch but it is not desirable. You may get stubble burn or get your make-up smudged. Turn your head to 45° and then lean towards them; your cheek thrusting forward.
Position the hand: Normally while air kissing people grasp each other’s hand at the chest height. While it looks like a friendly arm locking to the onlookers it actually acts as the barrier. This will let you hold the recipient at the safe distance.
Perform air kiss: Once you have positioned yourself properly it’s time to blow kisses. Pucker your lips and actually kiss the air besides the face of that person. Then switch side and kiss on the other side of the recipients face. Always go for at least two kisses. One kiss will look lousy and is normally against the air kissing tradition.
Kissing sound: Air kissing is all about making show off and hence making big sound of “Muah” is actually considered as conventional. So don’t forget to actually make the noise to let people around you know that you are air kissing. Making the sound is the most essential part of air kissing and the kissing process will remain incomplete without it.
It has now become a social norm to air kiss. This actually works great with people who you know less intimately to plant a kiss on their cheek. This way you can maintain the social decorum to greet someone without being to cheesy.
Air kissing is deemed appropriate for social and formal gathering where you meet people whom you don’t meet on a regular basis otherwise. For family and non formal gatherings the traditional kiss of the cheek is still considered as the most desirable way.
