What is Airbrushing?
Airbrush makeup is a technique of applying makeup using an airbrush system (consisting of an air compressor, a hose, and a application gun) as opposed to the traditional method of using brushes, sponges, and or fingers. The lightweight makeup used in conjunction with the system, sprays a thin, even layer of makeup that creates a flawless complexion and very matte finish. In addition to the stellar results, airbrush makeup has some great features. Because the makeup is specifically formulated for the airbrush gun, it’s thinner than traditional makeup and is alcohol and oil free…aka it’s not drying and it WON’T clog pores. The airbrush make-up line I use in class is silicone based, non-toxic and hypoallergenic. It’s also sanitary – more so than using sponges or other make-up applicators that germs can be attracted to. … Airbrushing allows the skin to breath so it feels like your not wearing any makeup at all. Due to it’s silicone properties, it’s also smear, sweat, and tear resistant.
Some Benefits of Airbrushing
The most significant benefit of airbrushing is the flawless skin coverage. The makeup is applied in such a fine mist that it does not settle in fine lines and creases, giving a flawless, natural-looking appearance that does not seem caked even with full coverage.
Light as a Feather
Airbrush makeup is exceptionally lightweight. The airbrush system sprays such a thin, light layer on the skin that is barely noticeable to the wearer while still providing impeccable coverage.
The coverage can range from sheer to full as it is built up in layers so that you can get the perfect look for different occasions for the same product, which also saves $$$.
Airbrush makeup wears longer than traditional powder or liquid foundation, and is able to stay put upwards of 12–24 hours. It’s also water and sweat proof. Perfect for those looong days!!!
