My tial last week was actually very similar but I’m oily. And I found that between 6-8 hours it started to break down terribly. Patches on my nose and chin wore off very oddly.

I also don’t do well with airbrush. Your makeup artist should be prepping your skin correctly to make the makeup sit well on the skin and stay.

Hello! 

I am a makeup artist and I personally don’t like airbrush makeup at all. It can look too cakey and fake looking. Airbrush in the makeup world is becoming an old trend because you can get a much better finish with using typical foundation, creams, powders etc.. Another thing I have against airbrush is that if you need to touch up your makeup later in the night there isn’t much you can do to fix your makeup and make it blend seamlessly. From a professional perspective I say a traditional makeup application will look nicer!

Commenting to follow–I am doing airbrush makeup and have my trial in a few weeks. It’s great to see other people’s experiences!

tigress :  My makeup artist recommended the airbrush makeup because I have oily skin and regular foundation breaks down on me after 5-6 hours. What brand did your MUA use?

Airbrush makeup can be amazing if done properly! A lot is in the artists knowledge and technique. You are correct, it should not be powdered to death, this will actually break it down. Find out what formula she used.  If your skin is dry then water based AB such a kett or Dinair will make it look very dull and matte. Temptu silicone based might a better option for your skin type but who knows what she used.

It sounds like she’s just sprayin and prayin! I would say try her again sans the airbrush or find someone more experienced…

Many artists will say they don’t prefer airbrush and the only reason I find for this is that they are not proficient in it.  Airbrush is just another toll in the belt and can come soooo in handy if the artist knows how to use it.  99.9% of my brides choose airbrush.

chouetteblanche :  How did your trial go?? I just had mine today and wasn’t impressed. The MUA seemed like she sprayed a TON but it also didn’t conceal well! She did use airbrush bronzer and blush but didn’t say if it was better than regular powder bronzer/blush.

chouetteblanche :  I’m sorry to hear the second trial wasn’t any better! I wish I had good advice for you, but I’m in the same situation. After doing some research, it seems like most bridal makeup goes heavy on the blush/broner so it doesn’t get washed out in photos. As for skin prep, it might be best for you to do it yourself. I wouldn’t expect a makeup artist to provide moisturizer, but she should definitely use primer; if not, you should bring your own.
