So what is airbrush makeup and what is all the fuss about? Is it really better than a liquid or cream foundation? Does it last longer? Will it cover all my spots without looking caked on?
For anyone new to airbrushing the questions are ongoing so I want to give you a little lowdown on the subject to help you decide if this technique is right for you.
So what is airbrushing? Ok so basically it is simply spraying makeup on to the skin. Technically a small air compressor uses gentle air pressure to push the super fine liquid makeup through the nozzle of the 'gun'. The result is a super fine mist of makeup that can be as sheer or full coverage as you want. The makeup itself is super highly pigmented (has lots and lots of colour) which means you don't need a thick layer to get great coverage. Awesome right? No more heavy cakey foundations!! Generally the application process is super quick and with the right skin prep it will hold up while you bawl your way through your vows (speaking from experience!)
But is airbrushing better? Now that depends on who you talk to. Really airbrushing is simply a technique just as applying foundation with your fingers is a technique or with a brush is a technique or with a sponge is another technique. And every artist has their own preferred technique. One they have mastered by doing it over and over again for years! So here's the truth....it's not the technique that's better...it's the artist and their product. Boom!! There I said it!!
