How To Apply Airbrush Foundation
Until very recently, airbrush makeup was professional makeup artists’ best-kept secret for achieving flawless makeup, but that is beginning to change. Airbrush makeup is a great tool for achieving even, uniform makeup that no brush or sponge will provide in half the time it would take you to correctly apply your foundation with another tool.
One of the benefits of airbrush foundation is that you can control the amount of product you are applying. So depending on the coverage you are looking for, you can build up or combine different types or shades of foundation to achieve your perfect look.
An airbrush makeup machine, as the name suggests, uses compressed air to gently spray foundation on your face through a specially-designed hose. This system allows the foundation to spread evenly across your face without requiring additional blending or wiping.
Applying airbrush foundation is fairly simple and once you have the technique down after practicing a few times, you will be able to do your makeup in a short time. However, you should always start with a clean and moisturized face to get the most out of your airbrush tool. Use the tips we mentioned above to ensure a smooth face before applying foundation.
To apply airbrush foundation, you should first decide the shade that is most appropriate for your skin. When shopping for a new foundation it is very common that we test the color on the back of your hand, but in reality, our hands receive a completely different sun exposure than your face does. To find your perfect color match, test the foundation on your neck or jaw, which tend to have the closest color shade as your face.
Because airbrush foundation is thinner than regular foundation, you can’t use your favorite liquid foundation to fill up your airbrush machine. While there are some tutorials you can follow for converting regular foundation into airbrush foundation, we recommend you get a foundation specially made for airbrushing to get the most out of your machine.
After you have found your perfect foundation color, it is time to apply to apply it with your airbrush tool. Begin by filling your airbrush machine following the manufacturer’s instructions. All machines vary a bit, but you usually only need a few drops of foundation for airbrush makeup. Once your machine is filled and ready to go, begin spraying holding the stylus 5 to 7 inches away from your face to ensure even coverage.
Begin at the middle of your face and move outwards towards your hairline pressing gently on the trigger to avoid spraying too much at once. It is better to build up coverage as needed than to apply too much and have to wipe off the excess foundation and waste product. You will feel a light mist and your face will feel slightly damp while you are applying it; wait a few seconds between layers to ensure proper absorption. Continue spraying making circular motions all over your face, neck, and décolletage.
One of the most important things to keep in mind while applying foundations with an airbrush tool is to keep the stylus in constant movement to avoid patchy areas. If you hold the stylus at one place for too long but neglect other areas, you will see thicker or darker spots that won’t blend in with the rest of your face. However, if you want to cover something in particular like a pimple or a dark spot, hold the device close to your face (1 or 2 inches away) and pull the trigger gently but quickly on the same spot until you have achieved your desired coverage.
With airbrush makeup, a little goes a long way, so if this is your first time applying airbrush foundation, you can practice on a piece of paper to see how the coverage and thickness vary depending on the distance at which you hold the device. If you don’t want to use up your product, you can also practice with water to get a feel of our thin or thick the product will feel on your face at different distances.
