I was set to have regular make up, due to cost.. however, because my hairdresser was running late, she decided to do airbrush because it was quicker to do… it was pretty amazing.  Stayed on all day, didn’t have to touch up anything the whole day.  I recommend it totally, but I’d try to find someone who can do it for an affordable price.

I loved airbrush, but wasn’t able to do it for my own wedding as I live in a rather rural area. In Houston as a bridesmaid, we were quoted from $65-85. I’m pretty sure the bride paid more for hers, of course – you know how that goes. Probably it’ll be even more expensive in SoCal, but that’s just my assumption.

But yeah, airbrush makeup is AMAZING and looks great in pics. I had my makeup done around noon for a 7 pm wedding, and when the midnight reception was over, it still took scrubbing with a washcloth to get everything off.

The place where I went says “make up from 20, airbrush from 40”

They have different packages, so hard to say what it would have been with my hair and nails… but bigger cities, I know women who have paid 200 dollars to have airbrush makeup done…. it’s sort of all over the board.  I’d call a few salons.

I had my make up air brushed for my bffs wedding and it lasted more than 12 hours. I had it done by 330 and it last until the next morning i woke up (i was so tired i knocked out with all the bobby pins and make up still on). It was sooo awesome. I never thought I would like it. I had heard horrible stories about how it dries out your skin or causes you to break out. It did none of that to me. My skin is senstivite too. Its worth doing it for your wedding.

Does airbrush make you look ‘too perfect’?  I would love the idea of air brush, but I’m worried that it won’t look like me. Any input?

I’m doing airbrush makeup. At my trial, it definitely looked like “me”–it didn’t look cakey or anything, it was very natural looking so I didn’t feel like I was covered up or anything. And it doesn’t feel like you have anything on your face, which is awesome. And, as other people have said, it lasts foreeeever.

See I was debating this but all the makeup artists I talked to (and these are very exeprience women) said that they use airbrush in photoshoots but not for weddings due to it looking unnautral.  The lady I am doing a trial with next week said she can do either but she assured me I wanted traditional makeup.

I paid $90 for airbrush. I was married on the beach in July and although she promised it would stay on even through the next day, my make up did sweat off, got on my dress, and at the end of the night I definitely did not look the same as I had in the beginning. I did receive many compliments and I felt beautiful- I just wish it would have been more sweat-proof for the money that I paid.

My first makeup trial was airbrush and I hated it — it didn’t match my face and didn’t cover well, either! It just looked makeup-y. But I think that was a rather poor example — I’m willing to wager it’s the artist, not the makeup, that matters most.
