I’ve read up on it a bit, and it really seems to depend on a lot of factors: you MUA’s skill, the quality of the makeup, your skin tone, etc…  I think you might just need to bite the bullet and do a trial to see if you’ll want it on your wedding day or not.   Me and my bridesmaids are all doing airbrush.  It didn’t feel heavy on my skin, but I can see little bumps and lines where the makeup had sort of settled in a bit if I looked at myself really closely in the mirror.  It doesnt show up on photos though.   Good luck!

I tried it during my makeup trial and I hated it. It cracked and didn’t look as full-coverage as liquid foundation, which was the look I wanted. As someone who wears full makeup daily, I chose a liquid foundation with bare minerals over it on my wedding day.

Also, I have some adult acne too and the airbrush makeup just accentuated it. Maybe my MUA was just bad at it tho? I ended up doing my own foundation after the airbrush trial fiasco. Def get a trial either way.

I did a trial run with a MUA with airbrush…used it for our engagement pics. Frankly, I really didn’t like it. It settles funny and felt funny. I ended up going with a different MUA altogether for the wedding because the original MUA refused to use anything BUT airbrush. Shame, because she had rave reviews, I guess my face just didn’t like the product.

I did two trials with airbrush and I wasn’t a big fan. I have combo/oily skin, and I just felt like it made my skin look dull. It stayed in place for the most part (wore off on my nose) and felt very lightweight, but it didn’t give me the look I wanted. I booked with another MUA who uses traditional foundation and he made my skin look healthy and glowing during our trial!

I’m very much the same as previous posters. I did a trial for my engagement pics, and my skin looked really nice in the pictures, but I felt like a clown in person. And this is coming from someone who wears makeup on a daily basis. My husband was even taken a back by how heavy it looked in person. I agree with the others who said it all depends on the skill level of your MUA. I would never do airbrush again, but there are many who swear by it. Have a trial done before you decide what you’ll be doing for your wedding.

I’m not sure if this is true, but my makeup artist said that airbrushed makeup doesn’t hold up well with crying. She said it’s much better suited for something like a photoshoot rather than a whole day of whatever elements– heat, sweat, crying, etc.

bridetobeeeeee :  I heard the opposite from my MUA, but maybe it depends on the type of makeup used – mine used a silicone based at my trial and she said I wasgoing to have to scrub it off in the shower that night – she was right! She also said though that it was important to blot and not wipe (tears) or it would smudge.

Let us know how it goes! If you send me a msg.  I can send you a link to my port.  every bride in there has airbrush.  IDK if that will help for you to see  🙂 

It should feel very light on the skin and cover. It’s all in the technique.
