In the world of wedding makeup, nothing says flawless & finished quite like airbrush makeup! Whether you’re opting for a backyard wedding or swanky hotel affair, airbrush foundation can give you that glowing bride look you’ve always dreamed about. While we might know that airbrush makeup looks good in pictures, that’s about the end of our knowledge there.

We decided to ask the questions we’re/you’re dying to know & we’ll let the experts at Carol Martin salonSpa share their knowledge on all things airbrush!

Q: What are the benefits of airbrush makeup?

A: “Airbrush makeup is long-lasting, lightweight, hypoallergenic & is non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores). It also looks great in photographs.

While you rub most makeup into your skin, airbrushing sprays a fine mist — which results in the makeup sitting evenly on your skin. Airbrush provides full coverage and gives a flawless, natural look. Airbrush also helps the blush and eyeshadow stay on all night long or until your face is washed. More specifically, our airbrush is waterproof, silicone free, paraben-free & not tested on animals.”

Q: Is airbrushing use for foundation or can it be used for other make-up?

A: “You can use an airbrush for any part of your face, but what we find is most common among brides and their bridal parties is just applying airbrush as the foundation for a flawless look.”

Q: Will it match my skin tone?

A: “Yes. We have a large variety of colors that we can pick from and combine if needed, to match your skin tone perfectly.”

Q: What’s the actual process of applying foundation makeup?

A: “The process of applying airbrush make-up starts with looking at your skin tone and creating a foundation to match. Then we make sure that your skin is clean and free of any make-up. Next, we apply the airbrush foundation (which goes on with an airbrush machine and is a light mist). Once applied, we let it set and dry on the skin and then go on to start the rest of your makeup. The whole process of getting airbrush makeup done can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 45 minutes.”

Q: If I sweat or cry will the airbrush come off?

A: “No! That’s the beauty of airbrush. It is not sweat/tear proof, but it is sweat/tear resistant (overall water resistant). Airbrush makeup will come off with soap, water & a good rub.”

Q: Is airbrush heavy? A: “Not at all! When it’s first sprayed on it might feel a little heavy, but after it dries it feels as if your skin is bare.”

Q: Does airbrush give a ‘caked on’ look? A: “No. You might look like you have some make-up on, but it is also very natural looking.”
