Whether it is your wedding or a party, every woman wants to look the best. Women spend hours on makeup in order to make their skin look flawless. One way to achieve this flawless skin is by applying airbrush makeup. This makeup technique is quite in trend right now and is a favourite of makeup professionals. However, if a technology has advantages, then it also has disadvantages.

If you get airbrush makeup done properly by a professional, then you can look fabulous. However, a slight mistake can spoil your entire look. If you are choosing airbrush makeup, then you should know all about it.

What Is Airbrush Makeup?

Airbrush makeup is a light makeup applied with an airgun. Liquid foundation is poured into the smaller chambers of the airgun and sprayed onto the bride’s face. As soon as the trigger is pressed, the foundation spray covers the face to give a flawless finish and the makeup blends well on the face.

Pros Of Airbrush Makeup

Long Lasting

Are you tired of fixing your makeup again and again? Then, airbrush makeup is perfect for you as it is long lasting. One of the major advantages of airbrush makeup is that it lasts all day long as it is mostly silicone based. Thus, it is also water resistant.

Flawless Skin

Airbrush makeup is applied evenly across the face, giving you a flawless touch. It gives you a better look as compared to regular makeup.

Less Product Usage

If you don’t want a heavy coat of foundation on your face, then this might be perfect for you. Due to the spray application, it gives maximum coverage with minimum product.

Good Option For People With Oily Skin

If you have oily skin, then it may be better for you and also, it will last longer than regular makeup. Since airbrush makeup can be applied in fine layers, it dries very quickly which means you can add more layers for more coverage.

Cons Of Airbrush makeup

Very Expensive

It is usually more expensive than regular makeup which is obvious since it is done through a machine.  The difference between HD makeup and airbrush makeup can be as much as Rs 7000 but it can vary from one makeup artist to another.

Can Be Flaky

Airbrush makeup feels amazing on moisturised and hydrated skin. However, if you have dry skin, then the spray-on product may start to flake off quickly. Since the formula is waterproof, therefore, the consistency is less creamy than that of a traditional foundation. Your base should be prepped, primed and well hydrated or else it will end up looking flaky.

Difficult To Re-Blend

If you need touch-ups after your makeup is done, then it can be difficult. This is because airbrush makeup cannot be re-blended. Thus, it can make it a bit difficult to achieve that flawless look if it is not done on the first try.

Not Good For Acne Prone Skin

If you have acne-prone skin and wish to hide those marks, then you shouldn’t go for this. This is because airbrush makeup may not completely hide it.

Which Type Of Skin Is Best For Airbrush Makeup?

This new and trending makeup technique is a blessing in disguise for all the girls. However, it is not suited for those with dry or flaky skin types. Alcohol is present in this type of foundation which dries your skin. Thus, it is ideal for normal, combination and oily skin.

It is advised that women with dry skin should stay away from it. However, a proper skincare routine can prepare your skin for airbrush makeup. Also, this makeup is not ideal to hide your dark circles. Therefore, you should opt for traditional makeup products for this purpose.
