Airbrush or traditional foundation?

Have you figured out which type of foundation you want to use?? Airbrush application gives flawless coverage but can also settle in fine lines. With traditional foundation you can use your trusted favorites, but you'll feel those thicker layers!

What will you do? Airbrush or traditional foundation?

    Neither! If I had to choose, I'd probably go with airbrush. I've never tried it, but I like the idea of super light coverage that I hear is achievable with airbrush.

    I'm not sure on this yet. If I end up doing my own makeup then it'll be traditional foundation. If I have a makeup artist do it I'll have to see what she would recommend and then decide.

    I believe my HMU person will be doing traditional, as airbrush was an optional extra add-on.

    Traditional. I like the idea of having more coverage since my face tends to breakout when I'm stressed or nervous.

    Traditional works fine with my skin, but for my big day I’d want to GLOW! So definitely considering airbrush. My concerns are, since I’ve never done it before, how long does it last, react with my skin, etc. But I guess that’s what makeup trials are for Smiley smile

    Not sure yet. I have my HAMU artist booked and my package comes with airbrush but I’m going to get her opinion on what’s best. I really don’t know 🤷🏻‍♀️

    I'll probably do traditional. I've worn make up a few times before and it's always been traditional. Never had an issue.

    I really wanted air brush, but the make up artist I hired doesn't do airbrush anymore. So, I'll have traditional foundation.

    I did a MU/H trial recently, it was my first time wearing airbrush - loved it. I was shocked at how beautiful it looked and how light it felt. My make-up lasted from about noon to 11:30 pm, when I washed it off. I'm definitely doing it again for my wedding.

    I don't know yet. My MUH artist does both and I haven't decided yet.
