Your wedding day makeup has a lot to withstand—photographers' flashbulbs, hot lights, kisses from your groom and relatives. Airbrush makeup is becoming more and more popular, so we talked to Tenafly, N.J.-based celebrity makeup artist Khuraira Musa, who did Bachelorette star Trista Sutter's makeup for her 2003 wedding, to get the details on this new wedding trend. Here's what she had to say: —Kim Forrest, Assistant Editor, Brides.com Magazines

Khuraira said that airbrush makeup, once mostly used on celebrities, is now becoming extremely popular for brides. "Airbrush makeup creates a flawless face," Khuraira says. "Waterproof and smudge-proof, airbrush makeup also has a longer wear time that can last for 12 to 16 hours. It won't rub off on anything or disappear into your pores. You can be dewy from dancing the night away, but your makeup will appear to be virtually untouched by the perspiration."

Airbrush makeup also looks great in photographs. "It's almost as if you ran your image through Photoshop," Khuraira says. "Airbrush makeup does not settle into fine line lines and has a light reflecting effect that is very camera friendly. The fine spray of tiny makeup dots sits on top of the skin, rather than penetrates, creating a smooth and natural finish. It is more flawless than conventional makeup and makes one look younger." And since the spray-on foundation is custom blended, you're sure to find a color that matches your skin tone.
