My airbrush did not stay on well and I had an allergic reaction to it. Thank goodness it was “only” my engagement photos. I used regular foundation for my wedding day, after having multiple trials with my MUA ahead of time to find the primer/foundation/powder/setting spray combination that worked best for me.

That said, other ladies LOVE airbrush and have great results with it. I think it’s a very individual thing.

I use airbrush make-up everyday and I love it. It stay on the whole day and I am not a professional.

I’ve had both and thought the traditional looked better.  For some reason I thought the airbrush makeup looked cakey and more shiny.

I had a trial with airbrush. It didn’t feel like I was wearing anything which was nice, and it looked great in the photos I took of it, but in person close up it was A LOT. I had it done in the afternoon and then wore it out to dinner and by the end of dinner, my face was soooo shiny. Like everywhere shiny. So I don’t think I want it for my wedding day. I bought Make Up Forever HD foundation after reading many good things about it (mainly on here) that I’m testing out and will be doing for my engagement photos, and I like it a lot better. It doesn’t look as heavy on my face but it still is great matte coverage, which I like.

I had airbrushed makeup on my wedding day and LOVED IT. It stayed on ALL day and still looked flawless before I washed my face at 2am. I wish someone could do airbrush makeup on me everyday!

I don’t think that airbrush gives enough coverage for a day long event. Also, I heard that if you sweat a lot, it may not last.

I had airbrush for a friends wedding and I didn’t like the way I looked, and then I had an allergic reaction to it! So, suffice to say, I will be using regular makeup for my wedding!!!
