@Fleurcakes:  I have had 2 bridal makeup trials with the same artist, one with airbrush and one without. The airbrush was amazing and lasted for 12+ hours. With saying that though i have decided to go for normal foundation as i found it gave me more coverage. It didnt last for as long but i preferred the look of it on my face more as i like my freckles covered.

I think that airbrush isnt as heavy and is a lighter application so if you have nothing you want covered up go for it.

I had airbrush make-up and loved it, although I don’t have any pro pics back yet but I could post some later.  I liked the look and feel of it much better than traditional makeup, and it lasted the whole night.  I had my makeup done at 11am and by the time I got back to the hotel at 2am that night, and it still looked great.  I’ve heard some people don’t like it though, so just make sure you do a trial so you can decide if it’s for you.

@Fleurcakes:  I haven’t gotten married yet but I spoke with a make-up artist and it sounds like airbrush is much more long-lasting, doesn’t look shiny in photos, doesn’t clog your pores, won’t fall off (on your dress! gah!) and just goes on more nicely and smoothly and will look more natural yet perfect. Find someone who knows what they’re doing with it! I do not want to worry about doing touch-ups that day.

I got airbrush when I was in a friend’s wedding and I had an allerigic reaction. Hives aren’t really my style, so I avoid airbrush now…

I had one trial with airbrush and one without it. I expected a light but perfect coverage from the airbrush, but there is no such thing. I actually hated the airbrush make-up! It was too heavy and cakey and created lines that didn’t exist before (and I have oily skin and look younger than I am)

It only looked “nice” for an hour, but after that my face started looking dull and older. In the end I went with the artist with the regular make up. If you haven’t done it before you NEED to test it out, to be sure!

@Fleurcakes:  I had airbrush done, because my skin is very sensitive AND the coverage was unbeatable! I did a trial first, just to make sure I didn’t have a weird reaction, but I loved it! I am no supermodel– but I definitely felt like it helped  up my look a bit between that and eyelash extensions:


These are the only two I really have of just me. Unfortunately it poured rain at the end of our ceremony, so we weren’t able to take a ton of pictures afterwards like planned.

@Fleurcakes:  i asked my makeup artist about this at my trial (last friday) and she said that there’s really no difference. the artist simply puts the product in a sprayer and applies it that way. no big difference between spray or manual application.

I think it depends on the makeup artist’s skill. I HATED my airbrushed makeup. It was very heavy, very obvious, and gave little wrinkle lines anywhere I moved my face. And when I kissed my groom during the ceremony, our noses touched and it wiped the makeup off the tip of my nose, which I could not fix of course because the artist was already gone for the day. And you can’t smear airbrush makeup around to cover the problem spot, you just have to live with it.

So, count me in for one horror story. My trial was with regular makeup, despite me being clear that I wanted airbrush for day-of. She assured me they would look the same, but airbrush would just last longer. She was wrong on both counts!

I’m certainly thinking of getting airbrushed makeup for our wedding, providing I can find someone in our area.

Altough, I’ve heard that it’s really better for younger brides, or brides who don’t have many wrinkles. It can really make wrinkles & fine lines stand out.
