Airbrush for dry skin??

I’m so conflicted on whether to do airbrush makeup or not. I have drier skin so when I wear foundation/powder my makeup fades half way through the day. For my wedding I want something that will last through the night. I also am prone to redness, and sweat easier. And my wedding could be hot out, it’s in June.

Hoping someone with similar skin issues can tell me how airbrush worked.

Should I airbrush or go traditional? I found a really good traditional MUA but I’ve always heard airbrush is the way to go for wedding.

    I’m getting airbrushed. I’m having an August wedding so I asked my hair and make up artist these same questions. She said she’s never seen issues with it. Maybe do a trial on a hot day in May and see how it turns out?

    I am getting airbrushed makeup as well. I have a couple friends who are cosmo's and highly recommended it for sweat, tears, and avoiding it getting rubbed off. I do not want to risk it being in northern michigan in july and also being an emotional person always, haha.

    I just talked to my mua yesterday about my July wedding she offers both airbrush and regular makeup she actually recommended regular makeup she said that airbrush might actually crack and flake off if I am sweating.

    I have the same issues. I'm still undecided on airbrush, I'm planning on asking my MUA what she suggests. Something else you can look into is getting facials - you have to go on a regular basis to see results, but if you start now a esthetician might be able to help with some of the dry skin issues.

    I have very dry skin but I prefer airbrush because it has better staying power, better coverage, and doesn't streak if you cry or sweat. With dry skin you will need to prep your skin a couple of months ahead of time with a skin care routine that adds extra moisture. My HMUA recommend Radha Rosehip Oil which I began using at my trial in October for my wedding in December. By the time my wedding came both my HMUA and I noticed the difference. At my trial, my skin was a little flaky with the airbrush makeup but I didn't have that problem at my wedding. In fact, even though I was 41 on my wedding day, my skin looked radiant. Here are some pics of me throughout the day of my wedding so you can see how long it lasted. It still looked so good by the time I went to bed I didn't want to take it off and actually still had my makeup on the next day at my farewell brunch.

    I have pretty dry skin & some scarring. I put lotion on the morning of a wedding I was a bridesmaid in, and they sprayed some on my skin prior. About an hour after they put it on, it was cracking all over my nose & lips. I asked her to try to fix it, and she just sprayed more lotion on me. It just made me look wet for 20 minutes, then cracked again. I'm 100% going traditional.
