Many brides request airbrushing for their big day and there is no doubt that airbrushing when done correctly is gorgeous and gives you a flawless look which is hard to achieve with regular make up.

All Day Stay
Most air brush make up is silicone based which is water resistant and gives it the ability to last all day for your wedding. If you sweat alot have allergies to certain products or get sun burned before your big day please inform your make up artist.

Minimal Make Up
Airbrushing requires less product for more coverage.
Easy to Layer

Can Be Flaky
Airbrush make up is great on moisturized and hydrated skin. If your skin is on the drier side it may look flaky if skin is not prepped properly.
Hard to Re-Blend
If you end up crying as most brides do it streaks and is hard to blend or fill in compared to traditional make up. But if it was applied properly you should not have an issue.
