What is Airbrush Makeup

We had several questions come in lately about airbrush makeup and how exactly does it work?  We at LaPaz Image/Event Consultants have two of the most talented Makeup Artist in the business.  LaHanna and Sonya both have very unique styles.and here is some information they imparted regarding this subject:

HOW DOES AIRBRUSH MAKEUP WORK?

Airbrush makeup is sprayed on through an air compressor as a fine mist of color that gently covers the skin, giving the appearance of a flawless complexion. Spraying microdots of makeup that rest on the surface of the face looks more natural than traditional makeup because it isn't rubbed into the skin and doesn’t exaggerate the pores. This process allows the Airbrush makeup to conceal better while enabling your skin to breathe.

HOW IS AIRBRUSH MAKEUP DIFFERENT?
Traditional foundations can look obvious, caked-on or thick and always feel like you are wearing makeup. Airbrush makeup leaves a light, seamless veil of color over the skin, creating the illusion of a perfect face because it is misted on, allowing your true skin tone to show through without masking your face. The ability to mix Airbrush foundation colors for individual custom blends is unsurpassed, resulting in a more natural look that covers skin imperfections effortlessly.

WHAT PRODUCTS ARE AIRBRUSHED?
Airbrush makeup products include foundation, blush and eyeshadow. The entire face can be made up entirely with Airbrush products, and/or incorporated with traditional cosmetic eyeshadows and blush as well.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AIRBRUSH MAKEUP?
Since Airbrush makeup is water-resistant, perspiration and tears are no longer a cosmetic problem. Simply blotting, not wiping, away any moisture will leave the Airbrush makeup in place without a streak. With over 18 hours of wear, Airbrush makeup will not fade or rub off on clothes, but yet can be easily washed away with facial cleanser. Once Airbrush makeup is sprayed on, it dries instantly to a matte finish and does not require powder or re-applying at any time.

CAN AIRBRUSH MAKEUP COVER ANY SKIN IMPERFECTION?

The wide range of colors and the Airbrush technique allow the artist to cover virtually any skin imperfection effortlessly. Bruises, birthmarks, tan lines, Rosacea, Psoriasis, Vitiligio, tattoos, scars and even freckles can be camouflaged completely or significantly improved in appearance, while still looking natural.

IS AIRBRUSH MAKEUP RIGHT FOR EVERYONE?
Women of any age can benefit from an Airbrush makeup application. Even men can enjoy the benefits when traditional makeup would have never been an option. Airbrush makeup is hypoallergenic, oil and alcohol free, so it’s safe for even the most sensitive skin, no matter what age or condition.
