About Airbrush Makeup


The Pros and Cons of Airbrush Makeup

 

Pros

1) durability: depending on your skin type you might not need to do touch ups

2) natural Finish: light to medium coverage foundation

3) Minimal Makeup: Because of the spray technique application process, a minimal amount of makeup goes a long way

4) good for oily or normal skin

Cons

1) Can Be Flaky on dry skin: great on moisturized, hydrated skin, but if your skin tends to be on the drier side, the spray-on product may begin to flake. Since the formula is waterproof, the consistency is a lot less creamy than traditional foundation

2) Hard to Re-Blend: If you do end up crying and your makeup streaks, it’s difficult to fill in the streaks with more airbrushing or even regular makeup, making it harder to re-create your original look. However, if it’s applied and dries properly, then this shouldn't be an issue

3) Limited Shade Options: The type of foundation formula used with an airbrush is different than everyday foundation, and there’s a more limited selection of shades and brands to choose from

4) More Expensive: For most makeup artists, airbrush is considered an add-on and typically more expensive than a normal makeup application. So if you’re planning to pay for your bridal party's services, airbrush may not be as cost effective. But if you’re curious about trying airbrush, ask about it during your makeup trial—it’s the perfect time to try it out to see if you like it before spending the extra money on the day of.

Ultimately, you want to look and feel like the prettiest version of yourself on your wedding day, so definitely consult your makeup artist to see what he or she recommends for you.
