Today, airbrushing makeup has become popular among makeup artists. Not only does the makeup provide even coverage, but it also lasts longer than traditional makeup. However, applying airbrush makeup can be difficult. With a bit of practice, you can get the look you are aiming for.
Before you can use airbrush makeup, you will need to purchase the correct tools. Your first purchase should be an airgun. While airguns can be a bit on the expensive side, the cheaper models work just as good. When purchasing an airgun, look for a model that allows you to change the tips. Next, purchase tips. Ideally, you will want tips that match the airgun. Lastly, purchase a small air compressor.
Now that you have your airbrush system, test the compressor before applying makeup. If everything appears to be in working order, place four drops of makeup into the opening of the airgun. To ensure that you are getting the right stream of makeup, do a test run on the back of your hand. If the color is correct, begin applying to the face in a small circular motion.
After using, you will need to clean the system thoroughly. Using a small amount of dish liquid, clean the chamber. You may also use a small amount of rubbing alcohol. Allow all parts to dry before using.
