Airbrush makeup is a form of makeup applied by an airbrush gun and a compressor. A makeup airbrush gun appears very similar to the automotive style gun, which spray painters use to airbrush vehicles, however, it is a lot smaller in size. The feeling of being airbrushed is often related to getting a spray tan applied, but much lighter in weight. Airbrush makeup can feel much lighter than normal conventional makeup and can be applied at a light, medium or full coverage. Airbrush makeup appears flawless and it is water resistant, tear proof and smudge proof with an amazing staying power up to at least 15 hours. Therefore it is highly recommended for bridals or special events when needing makeup to last many hours of the day. The finish of airbrush makeup can be chosen as a matte or dewy glow.
