The Advantages of Airbrush Makeup

Airbrush makeup, which is expelled in tiny micro-particles from an aerosol-like device held a couple inches away from the skin, has been a favored method of Hollywood makeup artists for years, due to the makeup’s long-lasting wear, thorough coverage, dewy finish and how well it photographs. Additionally, aerosol makeup has the added benefit of being water-resistant.


Airbrush makeup is waterproof, and can withstand significant amounts of sweat and tears. Because it is water-resistant, it stays in place and does not smear.

Long-Lasting Finish

Airbrush makeup provides long-lasting coverage and does not cake like many regular foundations. You will not need to worry about touch-ups and reapplying your makeup during the course of your day, or worry about the makeup rubbing off on your clothing.

Thorough Coverage

Airbrush makeup provides full coverage yet does not feel heavy or thick to the touch. It also controls oil production, keeping the skin from looking shiny. It also camouflages pores, providing a smooth finish. You can use airbrush over tattoos.

Photographs Well

Airbrush makeup is often used on actors for TV and big-screen appearances because it looks flawless and natural when photographed. For this reason it is perfect for special occasions like weddings.

Can Be Custom-Blended

Airbrush makeup has the benefit of looking natural and blending in very well, as it can be mixed on the fly to match people’s skin tones. Makeup artists can mix shades to create a custom foundation color for different clients.

Benefits for the Skin

Unlike many traditional foundations, airbrush makeup is non-comodegenic and oil free, meaning it does not clog the pores. It is also hypoallergenic, and is suitable for sensitive skin, allowing it to breathe.

Easy to Apply and Remove

Airbrush makeup only takes minutes to apply, once you’ve got the hang of it, and washes off easily with soap and water.
