Does anyone have experience with airbrush makeup? Have you had it done, are you having it done for your wedding? Do you prefer airbrush or regular. I dont want it to be too much, I’ve heard mixed reviews.

I’m having airbrush done, haven’t done the trial yet [and wont for a few more months]. But generally I’ve heard that it works well on younger skin – something about it settling into wrinkles .

I am one of the people who had a bad experience.
I was a bridesmaid and got it done for the first time; the bride paid for it. It made my skin look flawless but later in the day it… cracked. Yep, all along my smile lines and stuff.
I have pretty good skin and I’m in my late 20s.
The bride did not have this problem however and I have heard other people have a great experience.

@xxallurebridexx: I had mine done in my trial and I was very happy with it. It didn’t seem to crack or anything later in the day, held up pretty well.

I’m a photographer, and have worked with many a make up artist lol. IMO it’s not worth the extra $. I’ve actually seen better work done with traditional foundation. Just saying! =)

@xxallurebridexx: I am having regular make up done. My MUA told me that any artist that has a high level of skill will be able to use a brush to get just as nice coverage as if they were using airbrush.

I’m having an outdoor reception during the day in August so I’m concerned about being hot and sweaty. I heard airbrush stands up well to that. Anyone have any experience with airbrush vs. traditional makeup in the heat?

@xxallurebridexx: I had it for my wedding and loved it! My makeup stayed in place all night compared to regular makeup. I really got it for the staying power!

Thank you all for the advice. Maybe i will ask the makeup artist to do do airbrush and see how I feel about it. I have seen a lot of posts that say airbrush photographs well. But equally as many saying it cracks and looks too heavy. I want to look like myself but have pretty photos and not have to reapply makeup that day.

@xxallurebridexx: I bought my own airbrushing kit and practiced on myself for a while before I felt good about doing it for my wedding. It was about the same price as getting a makeup artist to do it once. This way you have control and they can’t pile it on, so it will NOT crack.
Anyway, maybe you don’t feel comfortable with that, but for sure give airbrush a try!

@xxallurebridexx: I had a trial using airbrush makeup. I hated it. I’m in my late 20s but I have really smooth, blemish-free skin, and pretty much no wrinkles. Granted it was a hot day when I had the trial, but within probably 2 hours of the MUA leaving, the foundation had mostly slipped down my face (I don’t even know how that happens!) and I had caking on my power cheeks and around my jawline. It also felt really heavy for the minimal amount of time it actually stayed ony face. Not worth the extra $$ IMO
