Techniques and Tips to use Airbrush Make-up
1)Always apply Concealer First:Concealer is used to hide spots and dark pigmentations on the surface of the skin. But, if you will apply it after using airbrush foundation, you will end up ruining the airbrushed areas. In order to make sure you get even make-up tone, consider applying concealer and apply the airbrush layer over it in a circular motion.
2)Always Test Spray on a Piece of Tissue: Always test the spray first on your hand or on a piece of paper before using it on your face. This is to ensure that the machine works just fine and also it will help you gain better control on it. Begin with a base layer as it will give you a better idea of the finished looks.
3)Never Use Traditional Liquid Foundations in your Airbrush Gun: Do not use regular foundation with airbrush. Since regular foundations are thick and heavy, they can damage the gun as well. You would need something watery to get through the gun. Thus, it is strictly advised to use only airbrush make-up foundation for better and long lasting results.
4)Silicone and Water do not Mix: Airbrush makeup is available in many forms like water based, alcohol based and silicon based. The trick is to make sure that you do not mix up the formulas. Water and silicon are two formulas that do not mix well at all. So, make sure you choose the best one for your skin and stick to that.
5)Don’t be afraid to Experiment: You can experiment with as many looks as you like to make sure you find the best one for yourself. Mix different colors and shades to add unique touch to your makeup. You can apply new colors on a white paper first to see how they blend. This will let you experiment with different makeup styles and colors.
