I got my airbrush trial run done back in April.  I fell in love with the airbrush and was expecting it to be heavier.  I found it to be light and I took great pictures with it.  I know my makeup person used the Mac makeup with the airbrush.

Loved my airbrush!  It’s a long day and I knew my make-up wasn’t going anywhere!

Interesting — I did the airbrush — it felt light to me. I have to say though, I didn’t notice a big difference from my usual cream make up in the overall appearance. I think it was longer lasting. I had air brush done twice and I think you have to have it done by someone who really does it right otherwise its not that good. Also she said airbrushing really works well on normal to oily skin types but once its on, that its. Its harder to manipulate then traditional make up.

Hmm I would try a different artist as well, because the whole awesome thing about the airbrushing is that it has awesome coverage and barely feels like it is there! I got it and loved it. I didn’t feel like I had makeup on at all but it covered perfectly!

airbrush was a disaster for me.  i’m glad i had it done at a trial, because if i had done it that way on my wedding day without a trial then all the pictures would have turned out terrible.  It looked so bad on me.

The trial day for my airbrush makeup was the same day as my bachelorette party and I look terrible in all the pictures that were taken that day!  

I would never, ever try airbrushing again.  It rubbed off way too easily, was pale, and looked all splotchy on me.

it’s important to remember that airbrush is just another method of applying same type of foundation – mostly a combination of smooth silicone/water/emollient mixture with various ingredients. Different formulations exist based on the skin type~ but the most a foundation can be is WATER-RESISTANT and not OIL-RESISTANT. If such a product exist believe me I’d be the first to line up and buy it all!

Of course it can be long-lasting (the airbrush application slightly enhances that~ but…the key word is slightly) but if you have combination/oily skin, it’s still going to melt off by your skin’s natural oils and sebum and can definitely be rubbed off – just like a regular application since it’s the same foundation formula……
