Do you want to have a flawless and natural coverage of makeup? How about a perfect and smooth finish without any streaks of foundation? All of this, and more, can be achieved with applying your foundation using an airbrush applicator.
For everyday makeup, powder and liquid foundation being applied with the hands, brush, or sponge are very typical. However, for special occasions it is well worth it to try using an airbrush approach for your foundation coverage. This makeup method floats on the top layer of skin that lets the natural skin show through.
There are three types of airbrush foundations that you and your makeup artists can discuss using, which are alcohol-based, silicone-based, and water-based. Each of these bases are wonderful to create the most effortless and natural look. However, there are some differences that set them apart from each other. Read on to learn more about each base, and which one will work best for you!
The alcohol-based foundation is completely waterproof with a matte finish. You won’t have to worry about looking too shiny or having it streak or melt off with sweat or tears throughout the day. On the other hand, this can be a tad rough on dry skin because the alcohol will further the dryness of your skin. This is more commonly used on the body to cover arms, legs, etc.
The silicone-based foundation is not waterproof but instead water resistant. Unlike the alcohol-based formula that has a matte finish, this base will cast a very dewy effect. This makes the skin seem to glow and look absolutely luminous. Brides who want to add to their natural bridal glow prefer this type of coverage.
The third type of based for airbrush makeup is water-based. This is not water resistant and has a matte finish. This type of base is more frequently used that the previous two bases. Many people use this water-based foundation for their daytime makeup rather than their wedding day look.
Many makeup artists love using the airbrush application when doing makeup because their clients are highly impressed by the end results. The clients notice that airbrush makeup lasts longer than their normal liquid or powder foundation and it is more water resistant and waterproof. Additionally, the overall look is very natural, clean, and fresh.
Airbrush makeup supplies can be costly and are more expensive than typical makeup foundations, but the finished look is priceless. You will be overly pleased and surprised by how radiant this makeup will make you look and feel. In fact, you will be stunned at how light the makeup sits on your face.
Makeup artists spend many hours taking classes and practicing how to perfect the skill of applying foundation with the airbrush equipment. Makeup artists really do recommend this type of coverage for special events and the results will speak for themselves…so try it out today!
