What is Airbrush makeup?

Airbrush Makeup is one of the many modern make-up doing techniques that are trending. Unlike other techniques where one uses brushes, sponges and fingers, here, the make-up is sprayed on the face with the help of an air gun machine. The air gun has compressed air which helps it spray a fine layer of foundation.

This makeup technique provides the most natural finish visible to the naked eye or the digital screen! It is comparatively more expensive when compared with the traditional makeup style. The foundation used generally has a runny formula and feels super light on the face. The device allows you to set the air pressure at different intensities and can help you create various finishes such as matte or sheer, light or heavy.

Makeup artists create exquisite bridal looks by performing all steps such as contouring, highlighting and shading ( these steps are similar to traditional makeup) with the help of the airbrush machines.

This is usually less time consuming but requires some extra makeup skills and knowledge. Only an expert who has all the knowledge about this technique can carry out airbrush bridal makeup.

Famous Airbrush makeup brands and their formulas: what to keep in mind

The first step for airbrush bridal makeup is to pick-up a formula according to your skin type. If you have oily skin, then a water-based foundation is perfect for you. If you have dry skin, go for silicone-based products for high durability.

Silicone-based formulas can be perfect for your wedding day or for humid locations. If you have any tattoos, then you must use white-alcohol based foundations.

For water-based formulas, brands like Dinair, Luminess and Belletto are the best. The only brand that offers a Silicone-based formula is Temptu. Silicone-based foundations do not crack while water-based foundations do, so that is a downside you must keep in mind. Also, silicon formulas last much longer!

Also remember that water-based gives a matte finish and a doll-like look, while silicone results in the real-skin finish.

In this digital era, we all are striving for perfect pictures. Airbrush bridal makeup is the right decision for your wedding day because the thin formula of the foundation looks flawless on the skin. Traditional makeup on your wedding day isn’t recommended as the camera picks up the minutest flaws like fine lines, creases, bumps and pits.

However, when you go with airbrush makeup, everything on the skin looks smooth and flawless. It enhances your features and aesthetics better for the camera!

Makeup styles and products used in this technique

Girls, you must be thinking that Airbrush makeup is only confined to the bases and foundations, but no. You can blush, contour, bronzer, highlight and shimmer. Airbrush products are usually hypo-allergenic in nature and go with all skin types. Airbrush makeup also includes products for lipstick. Fine contouring can be easily done by spraying the product in a generous amount.

The trick is to master the angles and direction of how to move the nozzle. When you put blush, keep in mind that you have to spray from a distance for blended and smooth results and the same goes for applying the highlighter. The blend of all three together for the final makeup look is mesmerising.

Airbrush bridal makeup is usually long-lasting. If you are planning for a destination wedding in a tropical region or a hilly area, go for it because even if the makeup is exposed to rain, snow or tears, the product stays intact.
