My best friend was getting married last weekend. As a chief bridesmaid and a beauty fanatic, I was in charge of all things makeup. The bride’s most important question of the day was: how long does airbrush makeup last?
Ideally, brides want to look perfect for up to 12 hours (the photoshoot, ceremony plus reception) without any retouching whatsoever.
The general rule of thumb is that airbrush makeup lasts longer than a traditional one. But from my experience, that’s not always the case.
What factors influence how long airbrush makeup lasts
Just like with the regular makeup, the longevity of the airbrush technique depends on a number of conditions:
- The type of airbrush makeup kit
The most important factor of them all, regardless if you’re applying the makeup yourself or if it’s done by a pro.
Without a good airbrush makeup system and a high quality airbrush foundation, you won’t get long-lasting results.
- The type of airbrush makeup products
If you need to look flawless throuout a whole day, definitely go for silicone-based products. Personally, I recommend Temptu Pro Silicon Based Foundations
- Weather conditions
The more humid it is, the shorter the lifespan of your makeup will be.
- Sweat & tears
How much you cry and how much you sweat determines how long airbrush makeup lasts.
- Your skin type
I’m sure you have noticed already, but depending if you have oily, dry or normal skin, makeup wears differently.
