What is airbrush makeup????

June 21, 2012 @ 5:04 pm by vanessa

Airbrushing is a specialized makeup application that once was used only by makeup artists for TV celebrities and for those on professional photo shoots.

This type of application method uses an airbrush system to mist a fine layer of foundation makeup onto the skin. I use the finest airbrush system and makeup in the market now, called Kett Airbrush. Some of the benefits of airbrush:

  • Oil-free
  • Lightweight in look and feel
  • Long-wearing and transfer resistant
  • Non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog pores or aggravate acne
  • An excellent way to cover scars or tattoos
  • Gentle on sensitive skin
  • Offered in a full color range, so skin tones can be matched perfectly on the day of your event.

Airbrush makeup is BEAUTIFUL on all types of skin and will make a difference in the way you look in photography!

Book for Makeup Lovers!

If anyone is looking for a book to learn how to better their makeup skills, I highly recommend picking up “Makeup is Art; Professional Techniques for Creating Original Looks” written by the Academy of Freelance Makeup. It offers a wealth of advice for aspiring makeup artists and dozens of creative and inspiring makeup photographs. This could make a great Christmas gift too! 🙂

Great setting spray!

My favorite setting spray is by Urban Decay – “All Nighter” – spray it on once you’ve completed your makeup application and your makeup will stay put for up to 16 hours! Highly recommended! You can find it at www.urbandecay.com and click on “Best Sellers”.

Make your eyeliner last longer!

In the hot summer months it can be frustrating when your eyeliner fades away due to sweat or starts to smudge and fall down your face from the humidity! A great way to prevent this from happening is to apply an eyeshadow over your liner to really “set” the liner in place. For example, after applying your black eyeliner, apply some black eyeshadow onto a very thin brush and smudge it over your liner. Continue doing this across the top and bottom eyeliner and it will last all day!
