So I’ve been seeing some posts about airbrush makeup and I just searched through the archives to read a bit more about it…but I didn’t find an answer to one of my main questions…
I am super oily and I always look shiny in pictures (lucky me). On top of that, my wedding is in August in Texas – yes, that means HOT. I really want to take outdoor pictures, as the outdoors of my venue is gorgeous…but I also don’t want to be a hot sweaty, oily mess and ruin all my makeup after 30 minutes of outdoor photos.
Is airbrush an option to solve this dilemma? I have read that it “stays on all day” – but does that mean it will withstand sweating outside? Will it keep me non-shiny all day and night? My skin is very smooth-toned so I don’t really need it to make the skin tone the same.

Could you get a trial done and see how it holds up in the Texas heat? I’d say that’s the best way to find out if it works for YOU because everyone is different. I loved the airbrush makeup but my skin is very dry/flaky and I barely sweat, so you may react totally different.

I would definitely suggest getting a trial done, and wearing the makeup all day. Airbrush is supposed to withstand sweat, so it shouldn’t streak or anything like that. Everyone’s skin is different, though, so I would really suggest trying it out first!

Airbrush makeup works best for oily skin. However, understand that the airbrush gun is just the method of applying the foundation, just like sponges and brushes are. What is important is the type of makeup being applied. For your situation it should absolutely be oil-free. I would speak with several makeup artists about their services and the products they use. Narrow it down and then have a trial beforehand. (I’ve just responded to a post on how to get the most out of your trial makeup session in another posting in this beauty section.) Good luck!

Definitely try it out first. Airbrush make up can be VERY different than the norm.
