Airbrush makeup vs. traditional makeup

So, you are considering airbrush rather than traditional makeup and you’re wondering if it is right for you? Join the countless other ladies who have faced the same dilemma, and know that you are in the right place.

Every make up no matter how good or expensive will have pros and cons. There is nothing out there perfect, and there is nothing that will work for everyone who tries it. If you have an up and coming event like a wedding or something to the like it is vital that you know what you are using before that day comes, and if it is something you have never used attest session is vital. Hair and makeup recitals are in some cases more important than the rehearsal dinner!

You will find a wealth of information online about airbrush versus natural makeup, but only you can determine what will work in your particular case. Some women cannot wear one when they can tolerate the other fine. Experimenting is your best option.

If you like the natural look and feel then airbrush may or may not work for you. Some women say it looks and feels natural while others swear it feels like a mask. Again, it is about who applies it, how it is applied and how it affects you. Airbrushing is supposed to be the lightest weight and provide maximum coverage.

The airbrushed makeup is misted on with a machine whereas traditional makeups are put on with a sponge and set with a powder. Some use mineral makeups for a more sheer cover. Of course traditional makeups offer more color selections than can be found in the airbrush sector. You also have the option of going very thin or applying thicker coat. You are definitely better able to customize your makeup to a combination skin type.

Now airbrush is usually not waterproof, but a lot of traditional makeups are. Have you ever seen someone sweat with a lot of makeup on? Airbrushing does not cake when it is applied the right way, and you do not get the “drip marks” when you sweat.

Again, traditional makeup can be customized to be thin in some areas and thicker in others while also being blended nicely, but airbrush offers a more flawless finish with great coverage. That means you may not need the thick makeup at all. You should definitely try airbrush at least once, and go be active to see how it will hold up. Some have tried it and never went back to the traditional makeups at all.

Some artists still prefer the traditional over airbrush, and after reading countless reviews from professionals and consumers alike one has to wonder if they are just nor uncomfortable with the change yet. Most swear by airbrushing even if it is just for special events.

Keep in mind that a good professional will know how to use airbrush makeup even without the machine, but this is for the experienced makeup artist and not for the faint of heart. These more qualified can even get in home airbrush machines, so the new methods are definitely worth a try. They are sure to give beautiful coverage despite which one you choose.
