Airbrush makeup foundation is a light-weight makeup applied through an air gun machine that produces a thin, even layer of makeup and creates a very flawless and smooth finish. A small amount of silicon-based liquid foundation makeup is put into the chamber of an airbrush gun. When the machine is turned on and the trigger is pulled, a light spray of makeup comes out of the gun in a fine mist, which can be applied in precise layers to achieve as little or as much cover as the client needs. The fine mist of color covers the skin and gives the appearance of a flawless complexion. Your trained bridal makeup artist will mix custom foundation colors for a perfect blend to match your skin tone. Since it’s such a fine mist, your true skin tone shows through making it look even more natural not caked on. It will not transfer onto clothing, and in professional photographs it looks amazing! Airbrush makeup is waterproof (bring on those tears!) and it won’t go anywhere until you wash it off. Be sure you don’t wipe away sweat and tears; instead be sure to ‘blot’ any moisture that appears throughout the day and night, and this will help guarantee your 16 hours of wear.
Airbrush makeup is a much finer product, thinner than a traditional foundation, and because it comes out as a spray it can very closely mimic the way cameras see your face. Think of it as tiny little pixels being applied as opposed to a big block of color, and, it makes blending a breeze! Carrying it down to the neck and chest is quick, smooth and seamless. For live engagements, like your wedding day, silicone based airbrush makeup formulas tend to be the preferred method of application for control and precision.
Our preferred foundation lines are Temptu and Makeup Forever HD. These particular products can be used either as a traditional foundation, or combined with a mixing medium for airbrush application. Either way, we know our clients will be camera-ready and fabulous all night long!
