@candy08:  I was airbrushed and didn’t think it was really worth it.  I got it because I wanted to make sure my makeup stayed on through all the hugs.  

For me, I wanted dramatic eyes so that was the main point of the trial, to figure out what we were going to do with my eyes.  But it was easy for her to go light on them, ask me if I wanted to go darker and then she would do that (at the trial) I’d assume your MUA could do the same the day of, you would just want to set aside more time as you’re figuring things out as you go!

I had 5… yes, 5… make-up trials. I ended up having a skin reaction to the airbrush make-up on my first trial, so we did multiple follow-ups to find the right products for me. I seriously could not imagine not doing a trial run. That would just stress me out. That said, if you are super laid back and go-with-the-flow, a make-up trial is not a must have.

I am a makeup artist and I suggest a trial (with any makeup) but airbrush can be different. Girls that wear NO makeup feel weird in it. Its not heavy coverage but it is makeup. When I have someone who doesn’t care for it I suggest a good quality bb cream. But you wont know how you feel about it until that day. Also if you are going to try false lashes and have never tried them before then I would also suggest a trial for that.

@candy08:  I had airbrush makeup done for my wedding and had 2 trials. I am so very glad that I had the trials.  My first trial was done the day of my bridal shower and I LOVED the makeup after she did it… but then when I saw pictures from the shower I noticed the shade wasn’t the color hue I liked to match my skin tone (came off yellowish in pictures, whereas I wanted pinkish hues).  I showed the makeup artist the pictures and explained my concerns.  She came back out a few weeks before the wedding and we ended up changing the spray color and even a little bit of the eye makeup.  On my wedding day, the makeup looked exactly like I wanted it and stayed on all day long, despite many tears and sweating!  The makeup she used did not have a lot of coverage, but it was perfect for me and my fair skin tone.  Good luck!

@candy08:  I recommend a trial for everything. You don’t want to find out on the actual day that you hate how something looks and have it be too late to do anything about it.

@candy08:  i never had it done, but i was in my friends wedding and where we went to get makeup i asked for just MY powder and makeup i had with me, they did. i dont want to sound cocky or what not, but my make up was the best out of all of them. my friend(who was the bride) the spray on makeup just sat in every blemish she had and mader her face look like she was wearing a plastic mask, the other two bm were so ORANGE they wanted blush but they were orange! my freiends mom and I were the only 2 who had real makeup put on and OMG we both looked amazing, the air bursh looked like S*** after seeing that im not even giving that option to my girls for our wedding coming up. HELL NO. if you want to try it…do it way before the wedding…in my eyes its bad…

@candy08:  I have sensitive skin, so I knew a reaction was a possibility. My MUA said she’s only had a handful of ladies who had reactions in her 10+ year make-up career. It’s not a common thing, really. I ended up with tiny red bumps covering my forehead and cheeks. It took a while for them to develop, so at least the first half of my engagement shoot was saved. The second half…. well, thank goodness for photoshop (but I ended up hating how that outfit photographed, so it doesn’t matter anyway!).

@candy08:  i use bareminerals makeup/foundation i dont like bronsers or blush ( i think it makes everyone look like a porcelain doll) i also used out last lip stick? (i think thats what its called (NOT lip stain- that stuff is like halloween make up!) I dont usualy wear make up so i like it basic. my one orange friend i tried to rub it off her to tone down her orange look, it was a bit hard to rub off in some spots, and it was almost (if the hood of your car is dusty, lick your finger and wipe a little bit off, it made a BIG difference so it was hard for us to try to tone it down)
