    I would love to know other brides thoughts on this also… I am debating on this issue also.

    I had my makeup airbrushed for an event once and let me tell you, if I could afford an airbrush and had any idea what I was doing with it, I’d wear it all the time.

    It makes you look really well blended and perfect. Glowy, dewey, non cakey. I say airbrush.

    AIRBRUSH ALL THE WAY! It is fantastic! I’m having my makeup airbrushed for my wedding and I absolutely loved the trial! It feels so light on your skin, makes you look flawless and lasts 12+ hours! Just make sure you get a makeup artist that knows how to apply it because I’ve heard horror stories of bad experiences.

    I’m a makeup artist in the Atlanta area and i will say that Airbrush greatly depends on the skill level of the artist. If you get an artist that is experienced with it the final result will be flawless and it lasts all night without touch ups! However get someone that doesn’t know what they are doing it can be a disaster! 

    Also your wedding day is half a photo shoot anyways so you want to have the right makeup. 

     Im not here to promote myself I just thought I would add my 2 cents. 

    This is my portfolio of my work all done with airbrush:

    My trial was airbrush (I actually had 2 by different mu artists). Both times it was flawless. I don’t even think you would need a touchup.

    I had airbrush and I loved it. However I think that regular makeup has more lasting power. By the end of the night my makeup had definitely worn off but it could have been due to the fact that it was almost 100 degrees and really humid….but for the first few hours of having it on my skin looked absolutely flawless

    I’m getting airbrush makeup for my wedding.  It looked really good when I got my trial, hopefully they’re right about its longevity and it lasts me all night!  I’m probably also going to bring a compact (Chanel makes a good cream-to-powder foundation that conceals, sets, and has a nice finish) and then of course lip gloss for touch-ups.

    I considered airbrush when looking for a makeup artist, but ultimately decided against it because I have oily skin and have been told that it tends not to stay on as long with oily skin.

    Not sure if you have oily skin, but thought I’d throw that out there.

    I went with airbrush and loved it! I have oily skin and found info online that said it has better staying power then regular foundation on oily skin- i think it just depends where you look as to what answer you will get. But my make up artist agreed it was better for me. Mine lasted all day thru the night and it was a very warm day here in sunny Florida. They say to just pat your skin not wipe if needed for any excess oil or sweat. I was not sure if I would go with airbrush until after my trial. I had heard horror stories of looking pale or orange, but I think it really depends on the skill of you artist.

    I did airbrush for my sisters wedding and loved it but it did make me look a little sweaty and started wearing off by the end of the night.  So I was thinking about using my MAC foundation with a little concealer mixed into it.  I tried doing this a few times when going out and my makeup looked flawless and I got so many compliments.  I think you can still get that flawless finish with the right foundation.

    I did airbrush, and I’ve never looked so good.  My 37 year old skin has a few issues, and make up can either tone those down or accentuate the creases, etc.  I was very happy with my air brush result.  

    I’ve heard people talk about it getting runs in it when brides sweat.  Mine looked good all night although I wasn’t doing anything that made we sweat like a pig.  Honestly, if you dance that hard, you’ll forget about what your make up looks like, and whatever kind you use isn’t going to look picture perfect anymore anyway.  Keep powder around for the shines, same as you would with traditional make up.
