The debate is on: is Airbrush Makeup a skill every makeup artist should have? We say yes. Airbrush is used in bridal, television, film and high fashion, all of which largely rely on makeup artists to provide a flawless base that is not just polished, but perfected. Here are our top reasons why every makeup artist must learn the art of airbrush.
Cam-friendly makeup: Airbrush makeup is a much finer product, thinner than a traditional cream or liquid base. The application mimics that of a spray-on, thus impersonating the way cameras capture your face. Airbrush makeup is like tiny little pixels being applied as opposed to a big block of colour, giving a smooth and seamless finish.
Long lasting: There is no surprise, Brides everywhere are raving about airbrushed skin for their big day. Airbrushing reduces all possibilities of stroke lines, lasts up to 18 hours and does not melt in extreme heat! Makeup artists are taught airbrushing for blushers and bronzers, as well as, other products (not sure the proper word?? But a transition is needed) to ensure all makeup is natural looking and budge (smudge?) proof.
Lightweight look and feel: A common myth in the industry is that airbrushed skin feels heavier than a traditional base. That is not the case, once an artist has perfected the application method, the base glides on lightweight and sheer.
