My best friend always has perfect looking skin. She uses the Temptu airbrush machine. From a distance she looks absolutely flawless, but once you get closer you can see that she's definitely got a lot of makeup on.
I use a light mineral makeup. It evens out my skin tone and covers up major flaws, but you can still see my freckles, a few large pores, and some light pink acne scars.
My friend has let me use her airbrush makeup and it makes ALL of my flaws disappear. I like the flawless skin look, but I'm hesitant to go out looking like I caked my face with makeup.
What do you think, should I buy an airbrush machine?
In this video I had my makeup done with the Temptu machine: link
The machine is somewhere around $250-$300, plus it's $60 for every foundation pod.

It's really up to you and what you're more comfortable in. If you're more confidant with the airbrush then go with it. If you aren't, or if you just don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars, then don't. Admittedly, I do think you look a little shiny in the video but that may just be the lighting or the video quality.
Personally, I think girls generally look best with light makeup that just accents their features a little bit. I find it a bit of a turn off if a girl's make up is visibly caked on. For example, I have a friend who, when she's done up, looks gorgeous from across the room but when you get closer to her she looks like her makeup was done by a mortician. When, she does it a little lighter, she looks much better close up and it doesn't really dramatically effect how she looks from a distance.0
