Following as well. 

 

I had airbrush makeup done for a photo shoot once and I didn’t really like it. I felt it was TOO lightweight for my tastes. I thought maybe it would make my skin look dewy, velvety soft, and flawless but I felt it still looked like my uneven skin. 

 

However, it may have had to do with the fact that she thought I wanted something very minimal. I’ll include a pic that was taken right after she applied the makeup. 

 

Such a terrible photo of me ughhhh.

Edit to above comment: if my photographer sees this please know I love you and you’re super talented and this is also a good photo but sometimes I don’t like my face 

another edit: I know I don’t have severe acne or anything, but if you zoom in, you can see every pore and all my peach fuzz ūüė≥. Plus some imperfections. So that’s why I wasn’t a huge fan, but again, I’ve only had it done ONCE and the “look” was to be minimal and not wedding makeup.

I have a Temptu system and I much prefer doing regular makeup. I pull it out only for things like eyebrows now or when I need to touch up my gray roots and haven’t had time, I spray some dark brown on my roots with it. For my face, I found for the coverage I prefer, I’d be spraying and spraying and spraying. Who has time for that? It also clogs frequently and you think you’re spraying but nothing is coming out. It’s just way too time-consuming.

I’ve had airbrushed makeup done and regular foundation. It depends on a lot. Just like regular foundation, airbrush can be applied heavily, medium, or lightly. I liked how I looked w the pro’s airbrush makeup (it was stunning and glowing), but I felt like I looked less like myself with the exact finish and coloring of the airbrush and the potential for dewyness is not good for me. I eventually had the same pro MUA fine tune 2 different liquid powder foundations, Ben bye banana powder, and hourglass finishing powders to look better and more like me in person and in pics while still being full coverage and it lasting forever.

I just got my trial with airbrush makeup and was really happy. I’m someone who wears a lot of makeup so I was a little nervous but I think I got way more coverage than with a regular foundation. I got traditional for my engagement shoot and felt it looked cakey and didn’t last. But the airbrush looked smooth and lasted all day. I was definitely¬†impressed.

Please don’t judge the horrendous before. No hair or makeup is rough.

I know VERY LITTLE about make-up and I do not wear any face powder stuff and I don’t even really know what it is… However, for my best friends wedding she hired a make up artist who did the spray and that stuff stayed on ALL NIGHT LONG.

Her wedding was one of the hottest days of the year outside, we were all sweating like crazy, but that spray stuff never budged. I looked fantastic the next day too lol. BUT be sure to come prepaired with somehint to take that stuff off. You need a lot of those make up wipe things

My friend was Maid/Matron of Honor for her friend and had airbrushing done. I think it looked great! She said it felt a lot lighter than traditional foundaction in a good way and helped cover up her acne scars (but she could still see the dents if you looked a certain angle) There are a ton of before and after’s on the MUA’s website: http://www.fionaman.com/portfolio/before-after/

I tried airbrush for my trial.  I loved the look and it felt very light weight in comparison to regular foundation where it feels heavy on the face.  I do not have before pictures, but I posted about this before with pics.

i had airbrush before my boidoir shoot and for my wedding. I love it. There are different types of makeup as well as water and silicone based. The silicone base is sweatproof and cryproof. I wear very little makeup usually because it always feels cakey. I didnt feel that at all with the airbrush makeup and I know my wedding makeup was silicone based. It gave me the flawless finish I was looking for. As others have said, you can layer it and getmore coverage where you need it. I am sure the final outcome has to do with the equipment/product used and especially the skill of the person applying it.

Jackie Vasquez :  Thanks! It only took about 40minutes and most of that was eyes.  It held up so well though, especially after shopping all afternoon and trying on clothes.

myvintagew3dding :  Thanks!
