Airbrush Makeup for Your Wedding Day

Makeup and hair are two concerns many brides address by hiring a professional. If you decide to try airbrush makeup on your wedding day, make sure your makeup artist/stylist has had training and experience. Ask to see a portfolio of their work or see if they can provide a sample service for you as practice before your big day.

Airbrush makeup professional, Laura of La di Da Makeup Artistry, recommends silicone-based waterproof airbrush makeup for brides because it looks natural, will not rub off on clothing, and “wont go anywhere until you wash it off.” Airbrush makeup is applied in a fine mist with a spray gun attached to an air compressor. Color can be mixed to match your skin tone and because of the way it is applied, it will not clog pores or have a “caked on” appearance. It gives a soft, flawless look to skin and lasts for hours in contrast to conventional makeup that can require several touchups due to sweat, rubbing off, and tears. Harrington of Here Comes the Guide magazine adds this helpful tip, “airbrush makeup isn’t just for the face—apply it to the body to hide tan lines or give you an insta-tan!”  

Airbrush makeup has lots of benefits but it may not be a good fit for everyone. Laura recommends discussing your skin type with your makeup artist first “Airbrush makeup needs to be applied to smooth, moisturized, hair-free skin.” Airbrush makeup is also more expensive. Ultimately it is up to you to decide whether the extra cost makes sense.

Wedding Trends that Wont Get Old

  Smaller Guest Lists Let love sweep you off your feet, not a room full of people to greet! After months (or maybe even years!) of planning, you will be surprised at how quickly your wedding day flies by. At the end of it all you will likely feel exhausted. . . and hungry! One way to truly savor the day is to spend it with the people you love the most. So don’t extend an invitation to anyone you feel obligated to or someone who you worry might be offended if left out, or any distant relative you don’t speak to on a regular basis. A smaller guest list will eliminate stress and allow you to spend more time and money entertaining those closest to you. Your wedding day will feel more intimate and warm surrounded by the people who share in your everyday happiness. Live Bands/Entertainment One more trend we love is live entertainment.
