AIRBRUSH MAKEUP- think of it as “real life Photoshop for your skin” & “the Rolls Royce of makeup”

Why airbrush makeup?

Airbrush makeup is truly the most perfect technique for achieving flawless looking skin.

While many people have the impression that the airbrush is a relatively new tool in the field of makeup, airbrushed makeup was first used in 1950 and has since developed with modern technology, with the expansion of digital cameras and HDTV, more makeup artists turn to the airbrush to take off the hard edge that pixelated images bring to skin texture. This skill is specialised and specific but with the right techniques and completed by an experienced professional, it is the “skin perfection” at its best and now it has become available to all who want the Hollywood flawless effect.

Why airbrush is called “the rolls Royce of foundation”?

Though not a new technology, airbrush make-up is once again in the limelight due to the advent of evolving digital media, including Digital Photography and Hi-Definition Television. The precision application offered by airbrush make-up has two major benefits that stand up to the challenges presented to make-up artists using regular foundation application:

  1. Full Coverage yet Sheer Texture:

A true airbrush foundation is high in coverage, but thin in texture, offering a high-opacity or full coverage application that’s dispersed as sheer and evenly as possible. The result is perfect-looking skin achieved with a minimum of product. No other technique can achieve this. Feels like you have nothing on your skin!

  1. Refined Pattern:

The spray dot-pattern the airbrush puts down on the skin registers less on camera than the patterns and trace lines that brushes and sponges leave behind.

While other advantages include longevity generally 12-16hr wear, durability, lightweight texture and gives the “real” skin look. No heavy cover-up, the true advantage of airbrush make-up is the beautiful finished result it produces.

In the following diagram you will see examples of the different results in makeup application techniques including makeup sponge, foundation brush & Airbrush.

Because of the fine misted spray, airbrush makeup provides a flawless coverage, evening out skin’s imperfections while still allowing your skin to breathe. (Yes, it’s really THAT light weight!) The final result gives you a very natural, yet very finished and polished look.

  6. How does Airbrush Makeup work? Drops of liquid Airbrush makeup is placed in an airbrush gun that is attached to an air compressor. The makeup is then gently sprayed over the skin releasing a mist of air together with using Chantel’s special techniques to achieve your perfect coverage. This mist covers the skin lightly (yet full coverage) and allows the skin to breath. It will leave your skin with the desired coverage without the “cake” feeling. The liquid mists lay on the surface of your skin creating a smooth, flawless finish that won’t block your pores or irritate your face. Once the liquid is applied, it begins to dry and stay on the skin’s surface. Once it dries, it is moisture and smudge resistant.
