    The cost will vary depending on the artist And the area you live in. 

    I was quoted 100 for it. The woman I booked for my makeup says she actually prefers HD makeup to the airbrush. She says HD still lasts all night but she prefers the look. I assume if airbrush is truly better she would have pushed it since she charges more for it.

    I had airbrush done when I was a bridesmaid in a friends wedding and I hated it! I didn’t look like myself and I had an allergic reaction so my face broke out in hives the next day. Needless to say, I did not airbrush on my wedding day – I bought all the products myself so I could try them out and my sister helped me with application on wedding day. 

    So if your friend decides to do airbrush, definitely do a trial!

    @housebee:  I had airbrush makeup done for a wedding I was in as a gift from the bride.  I wasn’t sure I was going to like it, but honestly it was AMAZING.  The wedding was on an exceptionally hot and humid July day, and by the time we were done sweltering outside for pictures, I was sure I’d have to go redo all of my makeup before the reception.  I was shocked when I looked in the mirror and my makeup STILL looked flawless.  I touched up my lipgloss and was good to go!

    After that experience, I will settle for nothing BUT airbrush for my own summer wedding.

    @housebee:  I’ve my makeup airbrushed before, and I love it. It’s especially nice for me, because my skin is fairly sensitive, and since they are airbrushing rather than using a brush over the same spot over and over and over, my skin gets less irritated. Plus it just feels cool!

    It does have a different look, but I think you will like it if you are going for a more light/airy/natural look.

    @housebee:  My airbrush makeup looked great at both my makeup trial and on my wedding day.   You might freak out for the first hour because airbrush makeup, at least in my case, looked SUPER heavy on me for the first hour but after that it wear beautifully.   After an hour and a half of it being done we were out for pictures (makeup still looked a tad heavy, but perfect for pictures) and by the time the ceremony rolled around it looked flawless.

    It stayed on all night and I fell asleep with it on.  A touch-up around the eyes and I was ready for sunday brunch with the family the next day.

    I just recently did an airbrush trial because I wasn’t to sure how it would look. But I did like the outcome. I felt it made my skin look flawless. I was quoted $99

    The top 2 pics are under a professional studio light, at this time I had it on for about 4 hours.

    The bottom left is under low light, and the bottom right I have my basic makeup on (powder, eyeliner, lip gloss). It does smooth out the skin.

    I’ve had it done, and may be doing it again for my wedding portraits. It cost $100+hst and tip, and I don’t think it’s worth it. It does give a flawless finish and it did last for a long time, but there are tons of other ways to get that flawless look (ie Estée Laudwe Double Wear) without the big price tag. Personally, I thought the photos turned out AMAZING, but regular high coverage foundation looks better in real life.
