Since I made a video about the Belletto Studio Airbrush Kit, I have had loads of you tell me you bought the machine (yay!!) and are venturing in to the world of airbrush! I’m so excited, because I adore airbrushing and it’s so fun to see you guys trying it out :)
Understandably so, there have been some people having trouble getting airbrush to work for them, and so I’m starting a series of sorts to try and help with any airbrush issues you guys may be having. The first of which was dealing with airbrush making your skin look old, settling in to fine lines, etc. A lot of airbrush makeup is matte, so its understandable to end up having your face look super flat and dry if you aren’t used to matte foundation.
Here are my solutions to getting a nice dewy look!
Use an illuminating Moisturizer
Using a moisturizer that has a bit of a glow effect is a great way to make your skin look dewy with airbrush makeup. the glow from the moisturizer will be balanced out by the matte foundation, resulting in a beautiful natural look.
Use a Radiant Foundation Primer
I love this foundation primer- alone it makes my skin really, really shiny, but under airbrush makeup it has just the right amount of shine.
Use Under Eye Primer, or skip airbrush under eyes
The number one place for airbrush to potentially sink in to fine lines and make you look older is under your eyes, so I tend to just skip it and apply normal foundation there. I use an under eye primer and a salmon, color correcting concealer, and then apply my regular concealer to balance everything out. then, I just apply airbrush everywhere else on my face.
Use Lustre DropsMost airbrush companies sell a product like this- it brings back the luminosity matte airbrush makeup can take away. to use, you can either mix it with your airbrush foundation or apply a drop after you’ve applied your foundation to areas that you want to have a glow- cheekbones, bridge of nose, etc.
