Airbrush makeup has been used on models, actors, and TV hosts for years, but is now becoming increasingly popular for average people. Most people who learn how to apply airbrush makeup vastly prefer it to traditional makeup. So, what makes airbrush makeup so superior to its predecessors?
Airbrush makeup offers an unparalleled level of control compared to traditional makeup. Most traditional makeup comes in the form of either creams or powders which can lay on the face very unevenly, and cake up on certain spots. Since airbrush makeup sprays out in a fine mist, it is much easier to get even coverage, and apply the exact right amount to each area of your face
One of the greatest benefits of airbrush makeup is that it is much more subtle than other makeup applications. You can apply light layers to problem areas and cover imperfections while still maintaining a natural look. Some people may still want to go for a bolder look, but it’s nice to have the option of subtlety, especially for people who don’t want to look like they are wearing makeup.
Even consistent coverage is key if you want to have a well-blended non-patchy look to your makeup. The very nature of using an airbrush makes it easy to get even coverage. The fine spray can create even and natural looking coverage over a wider area of the face. This makes it much less likely to have bare spots.
Longer lasting :
Many brands of airbrush makeup (including our own) are water resistant. This means they won’t wear down as easily due to sweat or humidity. Powders and creams do not have the same water-resistant quality, which gives airbrush makeup a major leg up. You can’t always control your environment, so it’s nice to have the security of a more resistant foundation.
Easier to get good results :
While it may take a little practice to get used to, once you have the basicsdown, airbrush makeup is easier to get high quality results with. It can take a lot of work and time to get the perfect look down with powders and creams, but airbrush makeup takes a lot less work to do well. Once you get a technique and a routine down, you could potentially cut your makeup application time in half.
The Bottom Line:
Airbrush makeup is the superior option if you are willing to put in the time and effort to learn how to do it well. It may seem intimidating at first, but after a little practice it will become just another part of your daily routine. You don’t have to be a professional makeup artist to apply professional quality makeup.
