When everything must be perfect, airbrush makeup is your best choice…
Airbrush Makeup is a specialized makeup application previously used by makeup artists only for high-end photo shoots and celebrity red carpet events. Airbrush Makeup minimizes skin imperfections, leaving you with flawless natural looking skin. It is great for any age, any complexion and any skin tone.
Aibrush Make-Up Benefits
- Your skin will look perfect and fresh throughout the entire affair regardless of the heat, humidity and how much dancing you do
- Long wearing and water proof formula, no need for touchups
- Makes you look great on photos and video even on High Definition
- Will not rub off or transfer to clothes
- Lightweight feel and look
- Non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores)
How Does Airbrush Make-up Work?
Airbrush makeup is sprayed on through an air compressor as a fine mist of color that gently covers the skin, giving the appearance of a flawless complexion. Spraying microdots of makeup that rest on the surface of the face looks more natural than traditional makeup, because it isn’t rubbed into the skin and doesn’t exaggerate the pores. This process allows the Airbrush makeup to conceal better while enabling your skin to breathe.
