    Airbrush sucked for my combo/oily skin. Definitely get a trial!

    I am honestly the sweatiest person ever (ok slight exaggeration but that is my natural response to being excited or overwhelmed or nervous so definitely all emotions I was feeling on my wedding day) and I swear by airbrush…. I even bought my own kit and do it now when ever I have to do big presentations at work or even have a long day of cooking and hosting (like for a party or holiday) or even just going out all night dancing! I love that even if I am sweating the makeup doesn’t rub off and leave you looking smeared and crappy – you have to very specificially wash it off with makeup remover

    ETA: if you are oily or sweating however you need to pat your skin not RUB and that seems to leave the makeup on for me (at least once it is set with powder – before its set it can smear so you have to be careful not to touch you face during the application)

    I have combination skin and chose airbrush for my wedding. Like PP said, it looked amazing all day long! I definitely recommend, it’s very much worh the extra cost.

    I did airbrush, the only complaint I had was that it made me look shinier “or glowy” whatever more than I wanted so I had to use matting powder throuighout the say

    bellanotte11:  I had airbrush done for our wedding, and it was perfect, I looked amazing all day. I have similar skin to yours it seems, my cheeks are rather dry, whereas my nose and forehead are really oily. I sweat a whole bunch during dancing and I still looked flawless! I still suggest a trial to see how it feels, to me it felt like I was wearing less makeup then when I do it myself with foundation. Also you can work out kinks during the trial, which I had to do and I am so happy with how it turned out! The second picture is post crying as well!

    I have combo oily skin (normal to dry on the perimeter and oily af on the t-zone) and airbrush is what you want. My MUA used a water-based airbrush foundation on me, the silicon one broke apart when my oils started to break through (NOT CUTE – my first trial was a disaster). Once we figured that out, my makeup was amazing, and my makeup looked flawless all day. I definitely didn’t notice any streaking, but I didn’t cry. I definitely was sweaty at the end of the night though!

    bellanotte11:  The only thing I had to touch up during the day was my lipstick, which I expected! My skin looked pretty much the same all day. Toward 11pm, I did look a little more glowy as more oils were produced, but it didn’t break up the airbrush at all. Here’s a picture at about 9pm (so after 10 hours of wear):

    (the two bright spots on my cheeks are reflections from the crystals on my dress! LOL). I definitely had a full face of makeup still on when I took it all off around 1am.

    I did have to pay for 2 makeup trials, because the makeup looked good the first trial, it just didn’t work on my skin, which wasn’t apparent until hours after the trial was done. I feel you on the cost though! Mine was $65 for the trial, $80 the day of.

    My recommendation since you are oily in the t-zone would be to go for that water-based airbrush first.
