Has anyone done the air brush make up thing yet? I’ve heard all good things until I started reading things on this site… now I’m freaked out. What are the pros.. the cons.. Should I do a trial? I don’t have that much time and was planning on just doing a hair trial.

I did a makeup trial with airbrush, and I absolutely loved it. It was really strange at first- but by the time she was finished- it felt like I had nearly nothing on- but looked in the mirror and it was flawless! Smoothed my skin and yet it was so light, i did not feel caked on. i kept it for about 12 hours , and it required little touch up- i just used some pressed powder. I plan on booking her for my wedding, and bridal party! hope this helps!

I didn’t use airbrushed makeup for my wedding, so I can’t share my personal experience with it but this is what I’ve heard/observed – airbrush usually costs more than the regular makeup applications and most of the MUAs that I’ve met said that it’s really not necessary unless you have poor skin. My makeup lasted ALL night…so I think that either way, as long as you hire someone who knows what they are doing, you’ll be fine.

I have never tried it, but I asked my wedding day make-up artist and he said that it is terrible for your skin.

I have REALLY bad skin (acne problems and such) plus I sweat a lot so my makeup artist recommended it for me. I really liked it. It is light and lasts for a long time even on MY skin. I wouldn’t use it normally, but it’s definitely a must for my wedding day!

I did a trial with airbrush and did not like it. I think it is a personal decision depending on your skin and personal preference. I generally wear mineral make-up, so I think it was just too "heavy" for me.

Airbrush makeup is only bad for the skin if using an alcohol based product, which should NEVER be used on the face under any circumstances – it requires more alcohol and lots of rubbing to remove.
Water based airbrush makeup is good, doesnt budge but that can be an issue initself with potential mishaps like having someones lippie smear on your cheek when they kiss you – it wont come off because the makeup grabs onto it. Silicone based tends not to have this issue, at least not in my experience, but some people can have allergy issues with it – usually those with latex allergies, not sure why this is though. Silicone based products look more natural and very fresh, dewy and radiant, where water based will usually have quite a matte finish.
I personally love airbrush makeup, even to the point where I will use it on myself for important occasions – although usually I apply it with a fibre optic brush on myself because I cant manage to handle the airbrush when using it on my own face.

Yes I am having airbrush done for my make-up and it is awesome! I did my trial a while a go a loved how it felt on my skin and how long it lasted. It definitely feels a lot lighter than traditional make-up. Plus my make-up artist is also going to cover any areas on my chest and back that have problems so I will look flawless
It’s definitely worth trying.

I am in NYC and highly recommend Sally Duvall who can be reached at 917.670.4271. I do not need or wear much make-up, but I have to say I loved the airbrush foundation. I did not feel like I was wearing anything and my skin felt like it was glowing. Her trial is $150, and for day of she is $225 for bride, $85 per additional face.

Add me to the list of people who got airbrush makeup and loved it! It felt like I wasn’t wearing anything, which is a contrast to some of my friends who complained that they felt like they were wearing masks on their wedding day! The only thing to remember is to be sure to signal your artist when you need to breathe– otherwise she can spend a really long time brushing around your nose when you’re desperate for air and not wanting to inhale foundation! 😉

I am also using Sally – she is great and I think it will be fun to have her hanging out with us while we are getting ready!
