Soooo.. has anyone had any experience with airbrushing? I had a makeup trial that went REALLY poorly–the makeup artist used traditional makeup and expressed her distaste for airbrushing because it looks ‘unnatural.’ She did such an atrocious job that I decided to do my own makup the day of.. I’ve never had my makeup airbrushed, but I’m considering it because of longevity and because it’s supposed to leave you looking flawless..
Which are you using?

I’m using traditional makeup because that’s what my makeup artist uses. I did a trial with her for my e-pics, and I’ve received lots of compliments. She blends it to match my skin perfectly– I love it! I’m no expert, but I think it’s more difficult to blend with airbrush. Our faces are not just one color… many people tend to be darker on their foreheads and cheeks… maybe that’s where the “unnatural” look comes from??

I’m going with traditional (matte powders-no creams) as no airbrush artist has yet been able to tell me if my oily skin will last through the day. My makeup ordinarily lasts all day looking fresh, but when it decides to go–it is gone!
I suppose I could go actually try the airbrushing before I make that final decision, but most likely I’ll be doing my own.

I would definitely try airbrushing (by someone who actually has the right equipment – they need the airbrush gun just like an airbrush painter uses and the right makeup for it) before you make a decision. I’ve been lucky enough to have had my makeup done professionally many times and I have to say I was blown away when I had the airbrushing done. In fact my close friend who I have recommended on several occasion to people looking for makeup artists but does not do airbrushing was with me when I had it done and he was floored. I hate hate hate foundation and powder and the way it feels especially on my dry skin but this felt like I walked by one of those mister machines and then like nothing, it was really amazing. It’s light and airy not cakey at all (when done right) but from what I’ve heard when done wrong it’s downright disastrous! My friend is doing my makeup for my big day because I have no budget but seriously if I did I think I would totally splurge on that before I would on jewelery or anything like that.

I like @ddubzz am using traditional because that is what my make up artist uses but I would love to try airbrushing, it just isn’t avaliable at the salon for the wedding 🙂
