What is airbrush makeup?
Contrary to using your fingertips, brush or beauty blender to apply makeup, airbrush makeup involves the use of an air gun with pre-loaded foundation and other products. The best part about using airbrush makeup is that you need very little product that goes a long way. Once you pull the trigger of this air gun, a mist of foundation comes out to give your face a smooth and flawless finish. You no more need to worry about your makeup looking cakey few hours into the wedding festivities.
Is it a good idea to switch to airbrush makeup for your D-day?
Airbrush makeup will leave you with a perfectly blended finish, precisely why, it can be your best bet this summer. To prevent your makeup from wearing off easily and to avoid frustrating makeup meltdowns, airbrush technique makes for the ultimate saviour on your big day. Your waterproof makeup will remain fresh as ever for up to 15 hours straight. That’s not all! Airbrush makeup will hide all the imperfections that could otherwise get captured on high definition cameras usually used for wedding photography.
Another reason to switch to airbrush makeup is that it is suitable for all skin types. In fact, if you have oily skin, airbrush technique will help your makeup stay on for longer. However, if you have major skin issues such as stubborn acne and acne scars, it’s better you stay away from using this makeup technique.
What are the downsides of using airbrush makeup technique?
As there are two sides of every coin; airbrush makeup also has its own downsides. Firstly, it is an expensive technique that is sure to make a hole in your pockets. Secondly, your skin needs to be well-hydrated before airbrush application or else it can be flaky. Lastly, once you’ve applied makeup using this technique, remember that it’s difficult to re-blend or do re-touchups.
So, whether you go for airbrush technique or the regular application, achieving a flawless finish entirely depends on the expertise and products used.
