I typically wear Bare Minerals on a daily basis but know that this isn’t the best make up for all day wear and photos.
I will be doing my make-up trials coming up soon and I am wondering about the pros and cons of Mac/Make Up Forever (or equivalent) versus Air Brush make-up for someone with oily skin.
I am getting married in May (at night) in the delta area of California so it will be warm but not brutally hot. Advice/input please on what is best.

Trials are your best way to find out what works best with your skin. Just because something works well for someone else, that doesn’t mean it’s right for you.
My MUA and I are on the hunt for something that is gentle enough for my sensitive skin, yet strong enough to stay on all day. The air brush make-up she uses for all of her brides melted off my face and made my skin react. MUFE HD and Mat Velvet started their disappearing act after about 5 hours. Ilamasqua irritated my skin from the get-go, caked, and flaked. Dior is the current front runner, though it still isn’t as perfect as I would like it. Next up in a new airbrush make-up and and YSL long wearing foundation. If neither of those works, I aqm trying the new long wear from Smashbox.

I agree about the trials. Everyone raves about Mac, but it doesn’t stay on my face for even an hour. I’m going with MUFE. Sorry, I’ve never tried airbrushing!

@Treejewel19: I live in the Delta region of CA too, I use Mary Kay- but I use the ‘creme to powder’ foundation which is kind of a matte finish creamy foundation you can apply with a wedge. It stays on during all day outdoor events as long as I use a foundation primer before hand. So I have to say use a regular make up and save the air brushing fund 😉

You definitely have to try different products to see what works. I loved the Make up forever HD foundation… it is seriously the best foundation I have ever used
