So about a week ago I did a whole series on airbrushing FAQs and describing in detail the systems I have used. A lot of people seemed skeptical still because they assume that my skin is just naturally great, and that airbrushing really isn’t worth it, or they don’t understand how to use it. So, I decided to remake a video I had made in the past (since I am a little more knowledgeable now!) and show how I go about applying my foundation with airbrushing.
I get asked a TON these questions:
- Can you use normal foundation in the airbrush machine?
NO. You need to use foundation specifically made for airbrushing. normal foundation is too thick, most airbrush makeup is no thicker than water.
- Does it feel heavy?
Not at all! You are only using about 5-8 drops of makeup on your face, which is MUCH less than normal foundation.
- Can I use powder or cream products before/after airbrushing?
Yes, but I recommend using cream products before and airbrushing over it, and using powder products after. once you apply the airbrush makeup, its basically the same as normal foundation, so you can go about applying products as you normally would.
- How do you take it off?
Exactly like regular foundation, it isnt any different, the only difference is how you apply it.
- How long does it take to apply it on a normal day?
For me to apply my foundation, bronzer, blush, and to clean it, it takes about 5-6 mins. When you first start out it will take longer because it is something new, but once you get the hang of it its super fast!
- Is it Sweat/water proof?
I would say it’s sweat/water resistant, but like most foundations if you are rubbing your face it’s gonna come off. I would use a makeup setting spray if you think you’re going to sweat a lot.
- Which airbrush makeup is good for dry/oily/combo skin?
Airbrush makeup really doesn’t have different types for dry/oily skin, you can just take different precautions, like how I use a mattening gel before i apply it, or using a product like Dinair’s Moist & Dewy to make your skin less dry and more glowy.
If there are any other questions, let me know!
