On a daily basis we are asked questions about airbrushing because it has become very popular with brides. We decided to come up with a pro’s and con’s list to help you decide if its right for you!

Airbrush makeup

Airbrushing is a specialty makeup application technique that utilizes compressed air through an “airbrush” with drops of color (foundation) to spray a light, super fine mist of makeup onto the desired area. Airbrush makeup provides flawless coverage by minimizing skin imperfections while giving skin a beautifully natural finished look. Most clients say they feel as if they aren’t even wearing makeup because the makeup is exceptionally lightweight. Airbrush makeup is also water resistant (not too many worries on a hot day or if you shed some tears). Tattoos, scars, and skin imperfections can be concealed with this makeup technique. Many photographers have commented that the airbrushing does such a great job at “hiding imperfections” that it saves them time editing their images to conceal a blemish or tattoo since the makeup has it covered. However you can’t reapply or touch up airbrush makeup. Also it tends to settle in fine lines and wrinkles throughout the night. 

Traditional Makeup

Although traditional makeup isn’t as popular right now it does have a lot of benefits. There is more control for touchups through out the day especially if you have oily skin or a tendency to get teary. You can reapply as many times as you want. With traditional makeup you won’t have that dewy photo finish look but you will have longevity and the ability to reapply.

Both types of makeup will enhance your natural beauty you just have to decide whats best for you!
