What is airbrush makeup?
Airbrush makeup is a fine mist of controlled air that pushes out color (foundation) through a small gun attached to an air compressor. The foundation consistency is thinner than your traditional foundation allowing for a soft mist and steady stream of air to create an even product finish over the top of the skin. The foundation can be sprayed onto the face for flawless coverage and long wear. The makeup can also be applied with the intention of a soft natural look if desired. The different airbrush products can be used for foundation, bronzer, blush, and highlight. Think of it as a fun approach to extended wear foundation.
What is the main difference between traditional makeup and airbrush makeup?
The key distinction between airbrush makeup and traditional makeup is the way the product is applied. Traditional makeup is applied by hand tools such as a brush, beauty blender, or sponge and it can be worked into the skin for an even finish. The coverage of traditional makeup can range from a natural dewy glow to a matte heavy/full coverage based on the formula. Traditional products such as powder, bronzer, and blush can be used in conjunction with a traditional foundation.
