Professional Makeup Additional InformationHow does Airbrush makeup work?
Airbrush makeup is sprayed on through an air compressor as a fine mist of color that gently covers the skin, giving the appearance of a flawless complexion. Spraying microdots of makeup that rest on the surface of the face looks more natural than traditional makeup because it isn’t rubbed into the skin and doesn’t exaggerate the pores. This process is hygenic and allows the Airbrush makeup to conceal better while enabling your skin to breathe.
Traditional foundations can look obvious, caked-on or thick and always feel like you are wearing makeup. Airbrush makeup leaves a light, seamless veil of color over the skin, creating the illusion of a perfect appearance because it is misted on, allowing your true skin tone to show through without masking your face in heavy foundations. The ability to mix Airbrush foundation colors for individual custom blends is unsurpassed, resulting in a more natural look that covers skin imperfections effortlessly.
Since Airbrush makeup is water-resistant, perspiration and tears are no longer a cosmetic problem. Simply blotting, not wiping, away any moisture will leave the Airbrush makeup in place without a streak. Airbrush makeup will not fade, melt, or rub off on clothes, but yet can be easily washed away with soap and water. Once Airbrush makeup is sprayed on, it dries instantly to a matte finish and does not require powder or re-applying.
Airbrush makeup has been used for almost thirty years in the movie and entertainment industry because of its versatility to create the right look on and off camera. With its virtual ‘no-makeup’ look, it appears natural in person, on screen and in pictures because it eliminates shine and provides the right amount of coverage without all the traditional makeup layers. Photographers can digitally airbrush photos to conceal imperfections, while Airbrush makeup can give you that same flawless complexion with one application.
The wide range of colors and the Airbrush technique allow the artist to cover virtually any skin imperfection effortlessly. Bruises, birthmarks, tan lines, Rosacea, Psoriasis, Vitiligio, tattoos, scars and even freckles can be camouflaged completely or significantly reduce in appearance.
High-def cameras expose any crease, wrinkle, or blemish. But thick, unnatural pancake makeup is also obvious through HD lens. To avoid the cakey texture of standard TV makeup, high-definition makeups are sheerer while still hiding uneven skin texture and other un-telegenic flaws, In other words, these cosmetics simultaneously camouflage imperfections, cover blemishes, and still manage to appear invisible. The pigments and formulas are designed to blend seamlessly with the skin.
The main difference is light-scattering ingredients. Diffusing light creates an illusion of an even finish so you can’t detect the flaws underneath — like airbrushing for your skin. Cosmetics with an HD label will likely contain one of the following: mica, silicone, crystals, or quartz. These particles sit on top of the skin and help to scatter light in subtle ways. HD makeup is often made to moisturize because makeup can settle into cracks and creases of dry skin. The hydration also plumps up dry skin to make wrinkles and lines less noticeable.
In most cases, no. You should always brush or sponge on your foundation in a downward motion to avoid highlighting the fine hairs on your face. It’s also essential to blend down to the neck so you don’t end up with a telltale stripe along your jaw.
