Airbrush makeup is becoming an increasingly popular favorite among makeup artists and makeup lovers alike, due to the easy application, the smooth, even appearance and the versatility, since airbrush foundation can be used on any skin type.
Liquid Foundation is especially ideal for anyone with uneven skin tone, acne scars or other marks and individuals with large pores, as, unlike traditional foundation, the sprayed-on airbrushed foundation minimizes pore appearance. Follow the airbrush foundation guide below and watch the video as well.
Applying Airbrush Foundation
To apply foundation airbrush , you must begin by understanding the airbrush, which is comprised of three parts: the trigger, the airbrush feed system and the mix point.
The trigger is located on the side of the airbrush. That is the lever you pull or press (depending on the model) to begin spraying. The more you pull on the lever, the more mist will be expelled from the airbrush nozzle. The feed system sucks the compressed air into the airbrush, so it can evenly expel the makeup in a super fine mist. The mix point is the portion of the airbrush near the nozzle, where the air and makeup are mixed just before they are sprayed out. The airbrush must be connected to the air compressor.
Before you start applying airbrush foundation, it is of note to start with a clean palate. Wash your face with warm water and apply a primer/moisturizer to ensure a completely even coverage. Also, pull your hair away from your face to avoid spraying your hair. The same goes for clothing such as collars as you will need to blend the foundation around the jaw line.
Once you are ready, it is time to pour a few drops of liquid airbrush makeup into the small well or cup on the top of the airbrush. If you are blending two colors, you can pour both into the well and mix them thoroughly with a toothpick.
Next, you will want to bleed the line and test the airbrush. This will suck the airbrush makeup into the actual airbrush. Simply spray a bit onto a tissue or paper towel. This also provides you with an opportunity to adjust the strength of the airflow, if you would like to do so.
Then, it is time to apply the foundation. Point the nozzle at your face and hold it at a distance. Bring it toward your face until you can just barely feel the air stream. If you cannot feel the air flow, you need to move the nozzle closer to your face. The distance varies according to the airflow setting. The lower the setting, the closer you will need to bring the nozzle to your face.
Use a circular motion to apply the airbrushed foundation. It is best to start on the apples of your cheeks and work outwards in all directions until your cheeks are complete. Then, move on to your nose, followed by the forehead and then, the chin and jaw line.
It is essential to keep the airbrush moving at all times; you want to avoid holding it in one spot for too long as this will cause unevenness or areas that are heavier than others.
Remember to close your eye when working around that eye; you can use the other eye. Also, remember to avoid touching your face until the makeup dries.
Once you are done, dump out any remaining liquid makeup from the cup or well. If you would like, you can pour in some liquid blush or eye shadow and repeat the airbrushing process. If you are all done, pull the airbrush trigger and aim the nozzle at a paper towel until all remaining makeup is purged from the system. Once you have emptied the airbrush, you can use the makeup-free airflow to speed up the drying process.
