I had my makeup trial last night and she did airbrush foundation on me and quite frankly I am a little ambiguous about the results. When I was sitting in the chair and several feet away from the mirror I thought I looked amazing but when I got home into my own bathroom and leaned in close to the mirror I was horrified! I could see every pore on my cheek in high definition (I do have larger pores on my cheeks but because I have non-oily skin they dont show up on a daily basis) It was just so much makeup I was kind of shocked. I had always heard that airbrush foundation looks flawless and natural so I was surprised to see it looking so much like thick foundation on my face. I dont have awful skin either- a little uneven in places but no blemishes so I dont quite know why that thick of a layer is necessary. Does anyone have any experience with airbrush foundation? Does it look like foundation close up? Are my results typical or should I talk to the makeup artist about lightening up? I am worried that up close talking to my guests it will look like a mask painted on!
