Airbrushed Makeup F.A.Q.

How does airbrushed makeup work?

Airbrushed makeup is specially formulated to be sprayed on through an air compressor as a fine mist of color that gently covers the skin. This process allows the makeup to conceal better while allowing your skin to breathe.   Most say that it feels like they don't have any makeup on their skin at all. The sensation of the makeup actually being applied can be described as a light, cool mist gently blowing onto the face.

How is airbrushed makeup different than traditional makeup?

Traditional foundations can look obvious, caked-on or thick and almost always feel like you are wearing makeup.

  • Because airbrushed makeup is misted on, it seamlessly blends during the process creating the illusion of a flawless, smooth face. It leaves a luminous veil of color on the surface of the skin eliminating the mask-like look you sometimes see.
  • Your skin's natural tones still peek through this special pixilated coverage for the most natural and clean look possible.
  • 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 unique spraying process creates a coverage that looks flawless and is ready for any digital high resolution close up.

What are the benefits of airbrushed makeup?

I use 2 different formulas, water resistant (water based) and water proof (depending on your preference.)

  • Simply blotting, (not wiping,) away perspiration, tears or any moisture will leave the makeup in place without a streak.
  • This makeup will not fade or rub off on clothes, lasts well up to 18 hours and yet can be easily washed away with your facial cleanser and water.
  • Once the makeup is sprayed on, it dries instantly to a matte finish that does not require powder or re-applying.
  • Can be used for any skin type including laser resurfaced skin.
  • Concealing small blemishes or other cosmetic challenges can be as easy as spraying small dots of makeup over  them. An initial neutralizing coverage can lighten and neutralize undertones, strong colors and even birth marks.
  • Does not clog sebaceous glands.
  • Silicon free.
  • Contamination free. No brushes or sponges needed for application process; dropper dispensed
  • Matte finish-great for oily skin types.
  • If satin finish is desired, the face can be misted with a specially formulated moisturizer that will not affect the water resistance of the makeup.

Which system do you use?

I use the Dinair System. Dinair originated the airbrush makeup system in the early 1980's and anticipated that everyone would eventually be seen, filmed and photographed in HD. Dinair developed the first high definition, daily wear airbrush makeup and continues to be the gold standard for high definition makeup. They offer a wide variety of mixable foundation shades to enhance any skin tone.
