@sangriasweetie:  I had the same exact situation…I hated it so much that I decided to do my own makeup with a good foundation because the airbrush was so unflattering on my skin…my mua was a highly trained, experienced and a recommended mua. It could just be that we both had unlucky experiences and maybe it isnt always like that but I honestly dont have the money to keep shelling out for trials to find out. Good luck! 🙂

I have my air brush and alot of brides love it, but when my brides leave it to me to recommend, i never use airbrush i prefer normal. i dont powder after air brush as its drying enough which makes is great in summer for oily skins. it is more difficult to match tones so like you said if they dont do it properly it can come up pale. i dont use powder blush or bronze, i miz up a darker shade and contour cheek bones to create a bronzed look. then somtimes cream blush worked in to apples of cheeks.

like you said great in pics not so great in person.

The only people i reeaaally like using it on is people that never wear foundation and have flawless skin but need very light coverage. so i start with concealer then use one very light coat it just evens out the skin tone and is very light on the face when used in this way. I also dont use it on anyone over 30 as it sits in the lines and can make some people look older than they are. im 25 starting to see 1 or 2 very faint ones and i wouldnt use it on myself for much longer (i have very clear skin)

Dont settle! you need to feel beautiful! if its not how you like it dont use that makeup artist or tell her what you dont like about it and see if she can fix it. Thats what trials are for 🙂 Good luck!
