    I’m wondering about this too. I’d love to see pictures of the same women with both types of makeup so I could see if there really was a difference.

    Posting to follow. I’ve booked me and BMs in for airbrush, and Mum for traditional, but happy to hear others’ experiences!

    This may be showing my ignorance a little, but what do you mean by airbrushing make-up? I was under the impression that you airbrushed photos, not your actual make-up?

    @MiraJo:  They spray on your foundation, kind of like when you get those airbrush tattoos at amusement parks 🙂

    I am getting mine airbrushed.  I had my makeup trial and loved it.  I wanted super thin coverage, as I didn’t want to cover my freckles.  She was able to do it a bit thicker in tiny areas to cover any red marks etc and it ended up looking flawless and fabulous.  I took a nap and none rubbed off on the pillow and it still looked awesome.  I’m hoping it’ll withstand sweat, but I think it has better chances than any alternative.

    I too would love to hear about people’s experiences with both.

    @loving_life: Ah, I see. I did some googling to get a better idea of this technique and found this picture

    I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the comparison though as I pulled if off a random blog.
    I may be a little bias, but I like the mineral make-up better. I think it makes her look more alive, especially around her eyes. But then again I’m more of a naturalist.

    As someone who has had both types dones many times for work, I can say that I much prefer traditional makeup. However, I think it really depends on the coverage you want/need. I didn’t even wear foundation on my wedding day, I just had concealer to cover up some redness. So for me, airbrush makeup is too much makeup on my face.

    I dont normally wear makeup, but for my first marriage I did airbrush, and I don’t regret it one bit. It was very light and airy after it was on. I got great full coverage which helped with my dark under eye circles. I’ll show you me with airbrush and without makeup.

    Without makeup:

    How does airbrush make up hold up in humidity/tropics? While it will be “winter” on my day, winter doesn’t really exist in my area. So I need something tropics-proof

    I am really into makeup and I think either can work

    for you. Airbrush does not have to be heavy. I am

    having airbrush makeup for my wedding bc I love how it looks.

    @mcgoo:  no problem. My family is from the Caribbean so I know airbrush can hold up in extremely hot and humid weather. The MUA should

    use a good makeup sealing spray. My wedding is in the summer so it will be hot so my

    MUA is using Model in a Bottle.
