It depends on what you’re being quoted for regular makeup & for airbrushing. For me, it wasn’t any extra – so I went ahead with it and really liked the look/feel of it. They can use some regular concealer/foundation to blend over spots or blemishes before they spray, so coverage is usually pretty good. This is just in my recent experience, though. 🙂

I haven’t tried it myself but have heard mixed opinions – my make up artist doesn’t recommend it if you like really light coverage as it can get a little heavy, she said it’s great if you want more coverage though. I never wear foundation and probably won’t for wear more than a touch here and there for my wedding day so I’m not going for airbrush myself.

Why don’t you try airbrushing at your makeup trial and see how you like it? Or just go to a salon to try it out?

I did two make-up trials (traditional foundation versus airbrush). I totally preferred the traditional make-up because the airbrush did not photograph as well and felt heavier on my skin (maybe I just wasn’t used to it).  Also, the airbrush had a little waxy texture to it.  Just fyi – my make-up artist used a matte foundation with no SPF/sunblock/sunscreen. SPF in foundation or cover-up can photograph lighter. My make-up artist also used non-shimmer bronzer and a setting powder. By the way, Lorac cosmetic products are made to be photographed.

I have “tricky” combination skin and suffer from the occasional breakout and I was also worried about airbrush make-up and how my skin would react. Personally, I went the safe route because I knew my wedding day would already be filled with emotions, surprises, etc. I just didn’t want to worry about my skin, so my make-up artist used the Lorac foundation I had been using for the month prior to my wedding.  I was 100% satisfied.

My advice (like The Unsuspecting Bride) would be to do a trail using both, take pictures, and wear the make-up for at least 10 hours. In the end, you’ll have your answer.

i’m having the same problem deciding which to choose also. I’ve tried airbrush and don’t really feel that it’s any different than regular.
