Hello lovelies 馃挄
Do you plan on booking an airbrush makeup application?

It鈥檚 so hard to tell when looking on Instagram which brides have chosen airbrush or do most brides choose this option?
Have you had any personal experience with an airbrush application before? If so, worth the upgrade?

    I have never done airbrush makeup before. I am doing a basic makeup by my cousin that is a makeup artist. I am also not trying to do too much, just plain and simple.


    I am a strong believer on trial run to make sure that it works for you and it suits your skin. Try to do it a bit earlier and not closer to your day.
    Keep us posted with what you decide.

    I am just getting the traditional makeup done for my wedding day. I don't want to go overboard with my makeup and want to look as natural as possible. I'm getting my makeup done professionally and it all depends on the person. You can always do a trial run and see if you really like the airbrush look or not if you haven't done it before

    I did regular makeup and it was perfect - flawless, natural look I wanted and lasted ALL day. I've had airbrushed makeup for weddings I've been in and I find (personally) it looks more unnatural in photos. Yes, it's great when it's hot and you're sweating because you don't have to worry about it coming off and it has more coverage without feeling overly heavy, but if you scratch your face or anything, it leaves a weird smear and you can't reblend... There's different pros and cons for both!

    I used to do makeup professionally and as much as I liked airbrushing, I could get the same appearance through traditional makeup applications.


    A lot of brides prefer airbrushing because they don't want to feel like they are wearing a lot of makeup the day of, and it can feel really light on the skin compared to liquid or cream foundations. If you are the type of person who doesn't typically wear much face makeup I would definitely recommend looking into airbrushing with your artist.
    Prices for bridal makeup seem to have gone up astronomically since when I did makeup, I think I only charged an extra 10 bucks for airbrushing. Did you have any recent quotes for airbrushing?

    It really depends on your skin. When I used to work events where I had to book talent, some people can't use airbrushing for makeup if their skin is not the best (ie dry skin from eczema). In my experience, there's also a limited range, especially for people of colour.

    If you're doing makeup for your whole bridal party and the two moms, it can be really expensive, especially if they all have different skin tones. Whereas a typically makeup palette can cover a wide range, the makeup artist would have to get a bunch of individualized pens with different foundations to cover different members of the party.
