Airbrush makeup is done with the help of an airbrush gun. It is fast, hygienic and gives flawless results if done correctly. This latest trend in makeup is becoming increasingly popular these days because of the finish that it provides. The products used in this makeup are specifically designed for the airbrush gun.
Airbrush Makeup – An Introduction
Like any other skill, operating an airbrush comes with practice. Please beware of the makeup artists who claim to do airbrush makeup but only spray a transparent liquid at the end of the makeup with the airbrush gun. Airbrush makeup is a long stay makeup and SHOULD NOT crack up after a while. I have heard many women complain about this issue. A good Airbrush makeup artist knows the proportion of foundation and thinner to be mixed for a good base. If the foundation looks patchy or the face looks cracked then most probably there was an issue with the mixing of the thinner and foundation. Some foundations these days do not require any thinners. Choose a makeup artist who is trained properly and has been using airbrush frequently.
Makeup using airbrush is not limited to applying foundation only. With airbrush, one can apply blusher, eye shadow, lipstick and even eyeliner. However, to save time in cleaning the airbrush gun, most artists apply base with it and complete the rest of the makeup manually.
