So my wedding is mid-September, which means it will probably be around 15-20C (59-68F) in the afternoon. My skin is on the dryish side also.
Is it worth the extra $$$ for airbrushed foundation? I’ll have the makeup on from 2:00pm onwards with 1 touch up.

YESS!!! I got this done for a photo shoot at an ice castle in below zero weather, held up beautifully and got me hooked! I bought my own compressor and use it daily! I have pictures if your interested in how it photographs, even in the harsh light of blazing sun off snow and ice!

Uhhh…I had airbrush make-up, and in all honesty, I’m not sure I loved it. Part of it is that my skin is on the oily side, and while it started out looking fresh, I started to get very shiny by the reception. (I can tell by the photos.) Our wedding day was in the 50s, so it’s not like it was all that hot. I also felt like it didn’t cover all that well, but I think that may have more to do with my MU artist not really using concealer except under my eyes.
It’s possible that my problems with it could be due to formula or just lack of skill in application. In all honesty, I don’t think my MU artist was particularly skilled, so I wasn’t very happy with my make up overall. I would say, try it out for another event and see how it wears, take photos in different light, and then determine whether you like it.

I got married in October, it was about 10-15 degrees outside and the makeup was done around noon, never touched up (except gloss) and it still looked perfect (and I mean, perfect) at midnight. I think it’s worth the extra dollars to know that your makeup will last all day.

I wanted airbrushed makeup so much I actually bought my own airbrusher a year in advance and practiced till I loved it. Plus I got to do all my bridesmaids!
I really suggest you do it, BUT have some powder to do touch ups in case you get shiny.
