Is Airbrush Makeup Really Worth It?

Recommended Posts

From my experience with my clients and applying to myself, the airbrush is usually worth it for a special event such as a wedding, especially considering the heat and humidity. I especially like it because you don't have to worry about rub off during dances/hugs/etc. If you aren't oily/sweaty, you certainly could skip the airbrush but I would definitely recommend a setting spray, a good primer, some blotting sheets, and some setting powder to reapply during the day. A good foundation applied with a flat top kabuki gives a similar look to the airbrushing, just forfeits the longevity factor. Hope that helps...either way, I am sure you'll look beautiful

that's very helpful. I think I'll splurge here and get the airbrush ;). After all it is a very special occasion and I want to look good! haha

I just started using a 4-1 product (SPF, primer, foundation, powder) by pure minerals -- she recommended I use it with a kabuki brush and wow I can totally see the difference in coverage (I'm sure it's in part to both products)

I'm so jealous that your resort offers air brush! Mine doesn't and I just cannot stomach the vendor fee to bring someone in to do it - especially since I don't have a bridal party so it would just be for me. I would probably pay the $200 if they did. I'm getting married in June and I'm a MAJOR sweater (ugh), but I did my own make up for my sister's wedding in Mexico last July and I don't think I look bad in the pictures from the end of the night so I'm hoping I'll be okay!

Yeah I think if I had to pay $800 to bring someone in I would probably get the regular makeup. Have you tried asking your resort whether they would charge you anyway for a service that the resort doesn't offer?
