Airbrush makeup is a technique that was once only available to celebrities but is now available to the general public and has quickly become the preferred option for special event makeup due to its long-lasting wear and flawless appearance.
When applying airbrush makeup, approximately 6-12 drops of water based foundation makeup is inserted into the reservoir of a tool called an airbrush gun. When the compressor is turned on the makeup is sprayed onto the face at a distance of about 6-12 inches away. By passing the airbrush gun in circular motions around the face several times the makeup creates a thin light layer on the skin that is barely noticeable to the wearer by dispensing a fine mist of tiny pixels (dots) which connect and layer together with every pass by building upon previous layers to produce subtle changes and cover imperfections with ease, creating a flawless complexion. Contouring, highlights, bronzer and blush can be applied with the airbrush as well.
