What is Airbrush Makeup?
Airbrush makeup is the application of makeup using an airbrush system as opposed to applying makeup using traditional methods such as brushes or sponges. The makeup can be built up in several layers to produce the desired finished look. Airbrush makeup is typically used by professionals within the film, theatrical and photo-shoot industry. It is also used for domestic events such as weddings, proms and other special occasions. Makeup that is applied using an airbrush often has waterproof, longer-lasting and anti-smudging properties.
Airbrush makeup can last as long as 12 hours and sometimes much longer. It can be applied to the full face or just specific sections of the face, for example, eye shadowing. The makeup can easily be matched to the user's skin colour to provide the perfect finished look. Air bush machines are normally powered by the mains but mobile units can also be purchased for working in remote locations. There are 3 main components to the airbrushing system, the compressor, the stylus and the air hose. The air hose connects the compressor to the stylus, a mixture of air and makeup is passed through the hose to the base of the stylus.
The makeup is loaded into the stylus and is either fed by gravity or suction, depending on the type of stylus you have. The most common stylus type is fed using gravity via a tank positioned at the top of the stylus. The amount of makeup that emits from the stylus can be controlled by how much pressure you apply to the stylus trigger. The air pressure from the compressor can also be controlled via an easily accessible airflow valve.
