Toronto2014:  I had airbrush for my wedding and engagement pictures. I absolutely loved it! I have very oily skin around my nose and forehead area. I definitely had a little shine by the end of the night, but no where near as bad as I do on a regular basis with my bb cream or usual fOundation. My mom got it and loved it and it didn’t settle into any lines or pores for her.


my recommendation is try it out with the mua you will be using on the big day because everybody’a skin is different and if your mua can’t apply it well you will hate it!

I got married yesterday and did airbrush foundation. I had a few pimples that it covered without redness showing and I looked matte and very good. Even when slow dancing with my dad and uncle,etc. they all commented on how amazing the makeup was. They all specifically mentioned it so it must have looked good. I’d do it again. 🙂

I was a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding and she got us all airbrush makeup. It looked awful – my own mother, literally, didn’t recognize me until I was halfway down the aisle. And then I had an allergic reaction to the airbrush makeup and broke out in hives all over. My face. Yeah. So I’m not a fan of airbrush. 

I wore BobbiBrown long last foundation and I didn’t touch up all day and it still looked great when I got back to the hotel at the end of the night.

I had the airbrush done for my make up trial and she ended up making me 2 knotches too dark. When my wedding day came she got it perfect. My skin looked flawless and even all day and night. I would definitely suggest getting a trial done first to see how you like it and how your skin reacts to it.

I think the actual product that is used in the airbrushing machine makes a big difference. I had my hair and make up trial last week and have cancelled that MUA for my wedding because, although she was a very nice lady, I hated the look of the airbrush foundation. You can’t really tell in pictures, but in real life I looked very chalky and the make up made my wrinkles look much more pronounced than they ever do normally (I suppose that this was because I have skin that is on the drier side and so that particular foundation might have worked well on combination skin).

I spoke with my photographer and he said that because I am getting married in the summer, in a garden, I should wear make up that looks nice in person as this is exactly how I’ll look on camera. 

I would say, make sure you have a trial using the actual product your MUA will use on the day and then see how it wears on you. 

Good luck planning your wedding!
