I’m sure there have been posts on this before, but just wanted to hear everyone’s thoughts on airbrush vs. regular makeup. I wear regular makeup (MAC studio fix powder foundation) on a daily basis, but have never tried airbrush. Thoughts? TIA. 🙂

Air brushing will give you more coverage without it looking like you have makeup caked on, so if you want a natural look, go airbrush.

I opted for air brush after several trials because it made my skin look amazing without the appearance of too much makeup.
That being said if you are an emotional bride I would suggest against airbrush. It is very difficult to touch up with regular makeup if you cry after your artist goes home.

I have a feeling I will be in the minority, but I chose regular makeup over airbrush. I did an airbrush trial and I felt the coverage was too light. My skin did not have that perfect finish I was expecting.
The MUA I ended up hiring uses MAC.

I had never tried airbrush before the wedding, and I have to say I was very impressed with it. Make-up normally melts right off me in a couple of hours (I have oily skin), but the airbrush stayed on all day (from 9am to 9pm). It still looked perfect when my husband and I got to our wedding night hotel. And I’m a crier, so the airbrush was defintiely good for that.

Thanks for everyone’s opinions! I have an airbrush trial in a few weeks so I guess I’ll see if I like it. I’ll have to talk to my MUA too about how I can touch up airbrush if I do end up going with it, b/c I’m sure I will cry at some point in the night!

@AshleyR83: Yes definitely ask. Small touch ups are pretty straight forward but I have been told by three seperate artists that airbrush is difficult to touch up if you are crier to a larger level.

I interned one semester for a hair salon that did airbrush and they did my sister in law’s bridal party- it looked fabulous! It looks like youre wearing make up just the right amount (very natural). Everyone got SO many compliments. Also, the makeup doesnt run, so if you cry (all of us cried at my brother’s wedding) you’re make up is still flawless and you wont get any one your dress.
I would highly recommend it!

I DIYed my makeup when I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man for a friend’s wedding and bought the airbrush from sephora. LOVED it…. and had my makeup airbrushed for my own wedding (not DIY). You cam touch up the airbrush if you pack the kit with you but overall the one my MUA used was very waterproof and really good staying power. It went on around 7AM in the morning and was still near perfect come 1AM unfortunately my hairstyle didn’t have as much staying power….

I got airbrush for my trial and I liked it. It was very light on my skin and it didn’t feel like I had makeup caked on. My MUA told me it was waterproof and actually BETTER for criers.

this may be the world’s stupidest question (and yes, there are stupid questions), but the airbrushed makeup is just the foundation and blush, right? they still hand apply everything else? i ask because the eyeliner, mascara, etc would be what runs if you cry, right?

@justmoi22: I had my makeup trial and I had airbrush foundation, I love the way it looks and it felt really light… I didn’t try crying in it but she said it was waterproof… However I did end up breaking out pretty bad the next couple days… But I’ve been battling acne for a while now so I’m just kind of used to it.

@Mrs. Meowerson: I don’t think that’s a supid question. I’ve been wondering the same thing. =)

Airbrush can be used for eyeshadow and eyeliner also, not just foundation, blush/highligher. Great for brow shaping also!
