Airbrush All Day Long!!!! I live in Tennessee (so I understand the conditions for your wedding) and all of the brides I know who didn’t use airbrush regretted it. Since it is so hot and humid airbrushing would definitely be your best bet. It will stay on all day long!

If it’s a cost issue, perhaps talk to your photog. about how much editing she is able to do? I personally can’t justify having my makeup done professionally when my sister can help me out for free. However, I only wear makeup for major events, so any sort of makeup makes me look better than the everyday.

Airbrush = fantastic. 🙂 I think it’s worth it. I was considering not doing it, and FI said, what other day of your life can you justify that? I agree.

If I was in a hot and humid climate like you, I’d airbrush.  I’m getting married in late september in New England, so I’m guessing regular makeup will do. 

What I have heard about on these boards is that monistat chafing cream.  I might give that a try as my base for makeup if it works out well in my test run.  You should give it a try on a warm day and see how it lasts if you don’t want to spend the money on airbrush.

I had my makeup trial done a few weeks ago on the same day I went to my BM’s wedding.  I hadn’t had air brush makeup done before but i loved it.  My artist said she had a girl who went to the gym, running, sweating, etc for a couple of hours after her trial, and she came out looking exactly the same with perfect makeup! 

I blew my nose quite a bit on the day and it didnt affect the look and even at the end of the day, it still looked fresh.  I would definately recommend it.

Here is a pic  Smile

I’ve been contemplating the same thing and a friend who had it done for her wedding argued against it. She said that it dried her face out (or her skin just got a little dry) and it settled into the skin around her eyes and made her look like she had crow’s feet. If you’re a young bride (yay, no wrinkles yet!) or have oily skin this probably won’t be an issue for you though. Is there any way you could have a trial where they do half and half on your face?

Airbrushing! I did a trial, and I walked around outside in the rain, took a nap, and 6 hours later it still looked amazing! My only complaint was they did a little too much eye makeup so just make sure to let them know what you are looking for.

Wanted to get more opinions, so I’m bringing this thread back. I have absolutely no experience with airbrush makeup at all, but it seems like most people think it’s better than traditional makeup? Just wondering if it’s worth the extra money…

A Bee blogged about this “Ace Your Face”

Since reading this blog this is pretty much how I do my make-up & I LOVE it! stays really well (even without the finishing product she talked about) And I generally use the “primer” with my regular cover-girl liquid foundation, with a loose powder (right now it’s the bare minerals I have left), and I REALLY love it

For Day of I will be getting more Smashbox Foundation (b/c I really liked it but ran out) & Loose Powder. but using the rest of her instruction =)

Oh… but I don’t do the mix with the moisturizer b/c I don’t like the way it feels (generally my face is oilier)
