With new discoveries in technology and cosmetics, people are now looking for makeup that can show a more natural look. Airbrush technology that was once used just for traditional paintings and automotive work has now invaded the makeup world. Hollywood in particular has started to use airbrush makeup as its secret to highlight the radiance and beauty of its actors. Using the same technology for automotive and painting artwork, the makeup is applied using a smaller and lower pressure airbrush apparatus.
Less Time Required
Unlike liquid makeup, airbrush makeup can be easily applied to define and cover details. It can be used as special effects makeup for high definition, camouflage, glamor and even just for daily wear. It takes less time to apply compared to regular makeup techniques. It is long lasting makeup and can be used even when you sweat a lot during workouts, or under intense heat from spotlights. It can retain the skin's glow and can be sealed with sweat resistant spray.
Despite the advantages of using this new makeup method and its ease of use, a number of makeup artists still prefer to use the common traditional techniques in applying makeup. The time cut down by at least half, compared to applying regular makeup, does not seem to be an advantage for some makeup artists. They find the apparatus used technically complicated. The different pieces of the equipment have to be assembled before you begin the process, and the following are needed: the airbrush makeup, an air compressor, a mask and an airbrush.
Though liquid makeup has almost the same chemical content as airbrush makeup, the liquid is thin enough to be sprayed on the skin using a fine airbrush. It can even achieve defined results that lipsticks or pencils cannot and can present a beautiful subtle look. A skilled airbrush artist can do special makeup effects on an actor.
For over ten years now, the airbrush technique in applying makeup has been popularly used in the movie effects industry in Hollywood. It is currently the only suitable makeup for High Definition Television or HDTV, as the applied makeup can easily be blended with no paintbrush streak marks left. Most traditional makeup techniques can leave a smeared or smudged effect, even only after a few hours exposure to heavy lights. With airbrush makeup, the results usually last from fourteen to eighteen hours.
Great For Cover Up
Airbrush makeup not only makes your face have a natural look it can also be used to cover up or conceal any freckles, blemishes, birthmarks, scars, or acne. It is hypoallergenic, waterproof, alcohol free and will not clog pores or easily rub off. Dermatologists even recommend the use of this makeup application to patients with various skin problems.
Choice For Brides
Most recently, airbrush makeup has become the makeup of choice for brides because it can easily be suited the bride's natural complexion. Most if not all brides want to look their best on their wedding day. By using an airbrush, it is easy to bring out the fresh-looking flawlessness and natural beauty of the bride. When an airbrush foundation is applied, the bride looks so dewy, fresh, and has a natural glow.
