Days of manually applying eye shadows, foundations, and blushes using sponges, brushes and fingers are long gone. We have entered an era where even the application of makeup on a woman’s face can be done with modernity and style. You might even be shocked by how long this already existed. Welcome to the times of airbrush makeup.
As said beforehand, instead of applying makeup with the aid of sponges, brushes, and fingers, airbrush makeup is sprayed onto the skin. Technically, it is an application technique that utilizes compressed air to spray on a fine mist of makeup. The makeup itself is a lightweight liquid that is sprayed over the face with a nozzle. It was first done in 1925 in the filming of Ben Hur since there were a lot of cast members.
Airbrush makeup has gained huge popularity as the media also advances. Since the traditional powder makeup as well as the liquid one may be visible on pores and wrinkles of the actor or actress’s skin when projected in HD, many preferred using airbrush makeup as it is finer and can even give that very natural look. It also lasts longer than the traditional powder and liquid makeup. It can last up to 24 hours. Basically, it is also more sanitary than the traditional makeup application technique since the artist never has to touch the skin. Moreover, it is faster to apply if the makeup artist is trained well.
Airbrush make could be water-based, polymer-water-based, polymer-SD40-alcohol-based, alcohol-
based, or silicon-based. It can be removed with isopropyl alcohol and isopropyl myristate.
Airbrush makeup has a lot of advantages over the traditional ones. As mentioned earlier, it lasts way longer. It does not even rub off the clothes nor penetrate the pores. It makes the complexion look flawless and natural, also as said before. It is sanitary, like mentioned, for it does not have to touch the skin and can be freely shared with friends and family. If you choose the water-based, it gets rid of all the oil and alcohol. Since it is sprayed, it does not limit the application to the face but to the other parts of the body as well. It can cover tattoos, tan lines, blemishes, and even varicose veins. It is sweat, smudge and tear resistant. It is very light on the skin, even lighter than air. It makes you look exactly like you, but
It may just be a lot expensive than the usual forms of makeup, but you must weigh the pros and cons of owning your own kit of airbrush makeup. It saves time and is certainly more durable and gives more satisfying results than the usual ones. But being expensive is not really that agreeable to better try just a small amount and see for yourself it works for you.
Moreover, you do not really need a class to learn how to use airbrush makeup. Kits usually come with a pretty good set of instructions that could be written, in compact discs or videos. But you can try taking a class as well.
Even makeup techniques ride with change. With imagination, nothing is impossible.
