I don’t know if its the stress or what, but about two months ago my face especially my forehead has been breaking out a lot, I am on prescriptions right now and hoping that my face clears up before my wedding 🙁 . I am having a hard time deciding if I should go with airbrush or traditional, I am on a budget and don’t think I will be doing trials. Has anyone with acne done airbrush makeup? does it help concealing the pimples? or should I just go for the traditional makeup? even thought it is cheaper too, but its okay if I have to pay more just knowing that my pimples will not show as much.
Also, I know I will cry so much during the wedding, my only brother passed away a few years ago and I know my mom and I will do a lot of crying at some point of the wedding, so I want my makeup to last through sweat and crying.
What do you recommend?

@vanyrose: I’m sorry to hear about your brother. I can’t imagine how difficult that must be. *Hugs to you*
My skin isn’t acne prone but I did get airbrush makeup for my wedding. The coverage is flawless and I think it would help hide some skin imperfections. Airbrush make-up is more expensive and I didn’t originally plan on getting it done, but I’m so glad that I did. It looks great in-person and in photographs. I didn’t do any trial runs with my make-up or hair because I’d been going to the same salon for years. Take pictures of examples that you LOVE and be very vocal about what you do or don’t like. If you decide against a consultation and wait till your wedding day, make sure that you don’t leave the salon/make-up artist unless you’re 100% happy with the end result.
A bonus of airbrush make-up is that it won’t budge…at least mine didn’t! It looked fresh the whole evening- even after dancing! I’m not sure about its endurance in summer weather, though. Also, my make-up lady did put fake lashes on me and used a little bit of waterproof mascara. The only thing that I needed to do the whole day was to reapply lip gloss.
I hope this helps you out! Good luck!!

I have acne-brone skin, and I had several breakouts when I did my makeup trial. Even though she did light coverage, it covered almost everything. If you are specific with what you want concealed, I think airbrush will work well for you. You can find my pics here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/makeup-trial-opinions-please-1

I’m so sorry to hear about your brother. I have no clue on the makeup, but check out Helen Lee’s The Tao of Beauty. She got rid of her pimples over a few days and had crystal clear skin just by returning to traditional chinese food choices.

I also agree with the airbrush! We’ve all seen women who try and use foundation to cover up acne and it usually just draws more attention to it. Too cakey etc etc etc. Airbrush should give the perfect textured finish.
