Im not sure but I know quite a few bees on here have used airbrush make up for trials and/weddings so opefully this will bump it up for you! Do you have any photos of the trial?Sometimes it could just be because you are aware that they are there but to others it may not even be noticable

I loved my airbrush makeup. My face had a few breakouts the day of the wedding and although it didnt hide the bumps.. it def hid the redness.. Maybe try the other stuff they have? My skin literally looked uber flawless.

@FutureDrZ:  I have tried and done both.. Also I have an airbrush makeup machine at home.. i think because people hear the  word “airbrush” your face is automatically going to be flawless.. Airbrush is not for everyone, depending on skin.. I have larger pores and if I apply airbrush over my face even with primer, my pores are really noticeable.. I have to apply a little bit of concealer or foundation on the areas I feel I need it, then apply airbrush over.. I shouldn’t have to go through all these steps to have flawless skin with airbrush makeup.. I feel that you can get a flawless finish with liquid foundation..With the right makeup tools/ brushes, you can acheive that airbrush looK..Go for what you know you will feel comfortable in, even if its liquid.. I used liquid for my wedding makeup..I normally use Mac foundation for my everyday makeup and used it for my wedding… If you like urban decay naked foundation, then use it.. I heard makeup forever hd foundation is also great, especially for pics.. If you can get another trial, try liquid makeup and then see which you prefer.

@FutureDrZ:  I had my artist apply my full coverage foundation on first.  Then did airbrush. I did this because my first trial wasn’t enough coverage.  I’m use to super full coverage.

I had airbrush makeup one time as a bridesmaid and I loathed it.  I have pretty good skin (now…thank you accutane) and it made me look extremely dry and cakey up close.  Maybe the application wasn’t great, but I looked like I was wearing a pound of makeup from two feet away.

Airbrush is supposed to be lighter than traditional foundation. It will mask discoloration but if you’re worried about bumps I would use regular, full coverage foundation.

Airbrush is definitely not for everyone. My sister tried it at her trial run before her wedding and was SUPER disappointed. Luckily, the makeup artist she chose also carried MAC cosmetics professional line and that worked BEAUTIFULLY. She also photographed amazingly. I’m going with full coverage MAC makeup on my day. 

That’s the other thing you have to think about. Some makeup–while beautiful in person–doesn’t photograph well (ex. mineral makeup–it reflects light).
