Hi girls!



So I having difficulty deciding on whether to get traditional make-up or airbrush make-up for my wedding and reason being is because I have gotten my makeup professionally done now twice (unrelated to wedding events) and the first time I love my artist and she did traditional make-up and the second time I got airbrush but I did not love my artist which made me question the airbrush make-upSo now I want to know what you are planning to do and why?

    I had no idea if I was going to go the traditional route or the airbrush route until my makeup trial, which gave the MUA the opportunity to experiment with both. I ultimately decided on the airbrush route because it worked better with my oily skin. But the point is, I needed to go through with my makeup trial in order to make the decision. I'd suggest using your trial as the way to decide!

    No two makeup artists are the same. Get a trial with both done by the same artist to decide. Everyone has their own preference

    I've never tried airbrush but it's hypoallergenic so thats a plus and it last longer compared to traditional. I've only worn make-up (traditional) twice in my life and both times I disliked it when I looked in the mirror but liked it in photographs. I'm planning on going make-up free on my wedding day. That's how I usually look and it's me.

    I would definitely see about trying both in your trial to see what you'd like. I personally prefer airbrush for wedding days because it's going to last longer and it looks really great in pictures. Though, it also depends on your MUA on how they do it. I've gotten it done as a bridesmaid and it was a little heavy on my skin. I also got it done by someone else for my engagement photos and it was really lightweight and natural looking. So it's going to depend on your preference and how well your MUA applies it.

    Is airbrush better for mature face (wrinkles)? I have super dry skin due to my anemia and thyroid.

    I've had both. For my brother's wedding, the makeup artist used airbrush makeup, but for my wedding the makeup artist used traditional makeup. I honestly didn't really notice a difference. I was happy how my makeup turned out for both weddings.

    I found it if your skin is naturally dry airbrush may not work for you because it will show all the surface in perfections versus traditional

    I think that airbrush tends to work better for oily/combination skin, which is what I have, so that's what I opted for. Super happy with how it turned out!

    I definitely support a trial either way though. I actually scheduled my trial for the day of my engagement photos so that I could see how it photographed and was thrilled!

    Hi. I've had my makeup done by many professional makeup artists and am pretty good at doing my own. I recently got to try airbrush makeup twice (once for my engagement photos and the next day for my friend's wedding as a bridesmaid) by the same MUA. For my upcoming wedding, I was on the fence so researched it, and what I found out made sense on why I want to go with a traditional foundation. I typically have very oily skin (but have recently changed up my skincare routine to accommodate that) so I always prep my face prior to any MUA doing my makeup. When you do airbrush makeup it's best for achieving that make no-makeup look and is better for people with skin that is already blemish-free and fairly even-toned. Here is a link that better explains it. https://lenaclarkbeauty.com/airbrush-makeup-vs-traditional-makeup/
