AWG: Is airbrush better for outside weddings? Or does it matter? Better for summer weddings so your makeup doesn’t melt off your face? Better for girls with a certain type of skin? Does airbrush makeup look lighter or heavier than “regular” makeup? Can it effectively cover up scars, dark marks, blemishes, and tattoos?

Brittney: Airbrush Makeup is very lightweight on your skin it does not feel like you have traditional makeup on your face. Although some think that airbrush makeup will be “cakey” it is actually the exact opposite airbrush makeup allows the natural hues in your skin to radiate through the makeup allowing it to look very natural. Airbrush Makeup can be applied for a very natural look to a very dramatic look this is based on the brides inspiration. Airbrush Makeup is not only used for foundation but it is great for covering scars, tan lines, blemishes, acne prone skin, tattoos, thin hair, receding hair lines and so much more!

AWG: How long does airbrush stay on?

Brittney: Airbrush Makeup longevity most definitely surpasses traditional makeup. It lasts 16 hours, while still looking Flawless.
