HD Airbrush Make up- IS IT FOR ME?

24/06/2016

HD Airbrush Make up 

A lot of my clients assume HD Airbrushing is just used for TV and Fashion because of being so close to camera however it couldn’t be more of the opposite. Airbrushing is becoming more and more common with makeup artists doing events and bridal because of course there’s bound to be a few snaps or two taken. It's not something to use for everyday life, it is a specialized technique and product which take slightly longer than your standard application of makeup because you have set up the machine and clean it after etc. However it is totally worth the extra time when you see the amazing effect it has. 

How does it work?

It says it in the name ‘airbrushing’ but yes it literally does give you that effect. Airbase makeup is applied to the skin using an airbrush gun. A fine mist of the silky foundation liquid is evenly sprayed directly onto the skin, giving an utterly flawless and even finish. These fine, tiny particles of makeup are applied with air to the skin to help even the skin tone and smooth over any imperfections without layering product. 

It simply has that unbeatable finish!

Is airbrush makeup for me?

Like most things, there are of course mixed opinions on airbrushing but when clients ask 

me whether its something they should try; I always ask ‘‘what makeup coverage do you usually go for?’’ 

I know that if my client will use and only use a tinted moisturizer or a light coverage then they will most likely feel its too heavy for their skin (unless of course there going for a heavier look for the certain day etc.)

However if my client usually goes for a medium- full or very full coverage she’s most likely going to love it. 

Does all make up have to be applied by the airbrush?

No absolutely not, I will usually use a mix of airbrushing and free hand make up- At the end of the day it depends on what kind of make up I’m creating.

A lot of the time, I will use the airbrush for the base, perhaps contouring and other face makeup and will do the rest free hand. But airbrushing can be used for a full make up, even eye shadow.
