What is Airbrush Makeup? Airbrushing is a patented makeup application technique that utilizes compressed air through an “airbrush” with drops of color to spray on a fine mist of makeup ie: foundation, blush, etc. It is the preferred technique for digital photography, high definition TV, and bridal work. Airbrushing makeup provides a camera ready velvety texture that lies on the skin in an even, misted pattern, creating the most natural finish to the naked eye.
How does it feel? While being applied, airbrush makeup feels like a cool breeze of air on your skin. It is not uncomfortable at all. Airbrush makeup is exceptionally lightweight. Most clients say they feel as if they aren’t wearing any makeup at all.
What are the benefits of airbrush makeup? Airbrush makeup provides flawless coverage by minimizing skin imperfections. It also gives skin a beautifully natural finished result. It can be applied on anyone- even men. Airbrush makeup is silicone based so it is waterproof, sweat proof, resists becoming shiney even with oily skin, and has a soft focus that creates a porcelain textured complexion.
Does it cover birth marks, rosacea, dark circles, scars, etc? Yes, all skin imperfections including tattoos, scars, stretch marks, bruising, rosacea, acne, and birth marks.
Is Airbrush Makeup right for everyone? Airbrush makeup is suitable for women of all ages and every skin condition. The makeup is hypoallergenic and fragrance free. In fact “Airbrush Makeup” is the only makeup that is suitable for the new High Definition standard in television. However, not all airbrush makeup is created equally, read more about airbrush makeup here.
How does Airbrush Makeup work? Just a couple of drops of silicone based liquid makeup is placed in an airbrush gun that is attached to a air compressor. The makeup is then gently sprayed over the skin, using a tiny mist. This mist covers the skin lightly and allows the skin to breath. It will leave your skin with the desired coverage without the looking or feeling thick. The liquid mists onto the surface of your skin creating a smooth, flawless finish that won’t smudge, become shiny, or irritate skin.
