What is airbrush makeup?
Airbrush makeup is a technique that uses a special instrument called the “airbrush” to spray makeup onto the skin. The makeup is in liquid form and usually the application does not require brush, sponge or finger. The pressure in the airbrush can be adjusted to give light, medium or heavy coverage, keeping into consideration every tiny detail. Being so precise, airbrush makeup has been used in the film and modelling industry since a long time. The technique has been known to be first used in 1959 on actors in the movie Ben Hur.
Here are some of the pros and cons of airbrush makeup:
Airbrush makeup is applied through an air gun machine that produces a thin and even layer of makeup which does not feel too heavy on your face. Also, airbrush makeup creates a very beautiful matte finish that’ll look absolutely stunning when settled down.
When the light spray of makeup comes out of the gun in the form of a fine mist, this mist of colour covers your face evenly, leaving you with a flawless complexion. This procedure works perfect for a day or night wedding. Your complexion is bound to glow in the sun or in the artificial lights.
For a perfect blend to match your skin tone, the foundation colours are mixed, so that the makeup doesn’t look too caked on and gives your face a natural glow. Bonus point of opting for Airbrush Makeup is that the makeup does not transfer onto clothing. Yes, you read that right.
