Instead of applying your makeup by hand with a sponge or a brush, use a more modern method. With an Airbrush Makeup System you apply your makeup with an airbrush instead of messy brushes. The makeup mixes with air that is supplied to the airbrush through a compressor and is released through the nozzle as a very fine mist. You can imagine the small particles being like little micro bits of color, which look perfectly blended and natural. By using the airbrush you apply the makeup in a very thin layer and means that you use a lot less makeup than traditional makeup. The makeup layer is only one tenth to one third as thick as when you do it by hand.
Your foundation will dry in just a few seconds once it hits the skin and can last for up to forty eight hours without smudging or running. If you rub it or someone else hugs or kisses you, it still will stay in place. Generally your airbrush makeup is either water based or silicone based. Some people are allergic to the silicone and have to only use the water based. When you airbrush it on, the water based makeup is still very high quality natural pigments,enhanced with vitamins and minerals. The silicone based foundation creates a moist, radiant look.
You don't have to touch your skin at all with an airbrush make up kit, Traditional makeup stays on your brush or whatever you use, and the bacteria can accumulate, sometimes causing breakouts. With air brushing your makeup nozzle stays clean, which is especially helpful for sensitive skin.
The key to airbrushing is to use continuous motion with just small bursts. You can create flawless coverage with just a few drops, and it only takes me about half the time I used to spend. Acne, blemishes, and dark spots are covered naturally and scars blend seamlessly with the surrounding tones.
You can also use the airbrush to create temporary tattoos or cover the ones you want to hide. All visual FX and costume design specialists use airbrushing in the film industry because it blends so naturally and produces such a life-like appearance. For your own use, when you use the correct tones, you too can create glowing, healthy-looking skin by using the same tools and techniques as these professional makeup artists.
How much do these airbrush makeup systems cost? They can range from $100 all the way up to several hundred, especially for a professional airbrush makeup kit. The makeup you use is about the same price as traditional makeup. Because you use less of it, it can cost less each week when you use an airbrush.
Some of the top consumer brands for airbrush systems are Dinair, Temptu, MAC Air, Luminess Air and more. There are many more out there and if you are thinking about buying an airbrush makeup system make sure you check out reviews or ask your friends who might have a kit if they recommend it. Professionals in the makeup community are also there to help out. You can call around to see who airbrushes makeup and ask their advice.
