I’m not married yet, but I got airbrush tanned once to be in a friend’s wedding. I don’t know if it was just the place I went or what, but it wasn’t worth it to me. I don’t think I looked much darker than before at all and I was gross and sticky when I left there. I think self tanning lotions work better and are cheaper and just all around easier!

Obvs not married yet, but I’ve airbrushed several times and it’s never rubbed off for me.  I love it!

I airbrush tan pretty regularly in those booths.  You need to have the solution on you for about 10 hours before the tan develops. It does rub off on your clothes and most places will suggest wearing dark clothes.  The stains come out in the laundry. After you shower though, you will not have any more stains on your clothes and it will not rub off.

I would also suggest exfoliating in the shower prior to going. Blot the solution with a towel after you come out as it gets drippy. The places usually provide you with one, and  make sure you wash your hands after you get out of the booth.  You don’t want orange palms.

I get airbrush tans quite a bit to avoid the harmful stuff from tanning. With airbrush tanning you have to make sure to shower 8 hours after it is applied. It is not the same as a mystic that you can get right before an event. Airbrush you have to do the night before and shower other wise it is sticky. It rubs off on your clothes if you do not wash the access stuff off. I only have a problem with the color rubbing off if it is really hot and you sweat at all. I have gotten some color on white shirts before. I am also worried about it coming off on my wedding dress. Oh and using a white towel is not a good idea, it gets ALL over it!

There’s a difference between airbrush – when someone who works there sprays you – or spraying in the booths. By me airbrush is more expensive, I’ve never done it. I’ve gone spray tanning once (before a wedding) in a Mystic booth and had a horrific experience (long story) but more important – I would definitely do it again.

Be prepared for what you may look like when you walk out. I was DARK, although mine was on setting #3 the darkest. I went to sleep took a shower when I woke up & was fine (FYI – you can see it coming off when you shower – it freaked me out). I wore a silk dress to my friend’s wedding and nothing came off. Not even through the sweat. It lasted about 3-4 days. I absolutely plan on doing it for my wedding

Here’s a video for the mystic if it helps:

@dancy905 -I have done both mystic and airbrush tanning, and I like airbrush tanning way better. It goes on more even and you do not have the problem with your feet not blending or looking orange. You should try it!

Thanks july112010 ! That’s the one thing that really does bother me. Your fingers, knuckles & toes look really weird & I didn’t like that. Airbrush is about twice the price where I go but I might try it next time – thanks for the heads up. 🙂
