Do you need a special airbrush for makeup? You’ll need to buy a special product to use with your airbrush, which does make it tough to add to your professional makeup artistry kit in a range that will suit all your clients. As a makeup artist, chances are you won’t be responsible for your clients’ hair, unless you’ve also pursued courses in hairstyling.
Can I use my airbrush for makeup? An airbrush gun can work with any standard liquid foundation for as long as the makeup is thinned properly. You can use various products for this, like moisturizers, airbrush makeup thinners, and even water.
What does an airbrush do in makeup? Airbrush makeup is a fine mist of controlled air that pushes out color (foundation) through a small gun attached to an air compressor. The foundation consistency is thinner than your traditional foundation allowing for a soft mist and steady stream of air to create an even product finish over the top of the skin.
Is airbrush better than foundation? The short answer is no. Airbrush makeup is light and provides a blanket-like finish, unlike traditional makeup which provides fuller coverage. Traditional makeup foundations come available in a range of formulations, some of them focusing on hiding blemishes and eliminating the look of imperfections on the skin.
