Airbrush vs Traditional Foundation


Traditional foundation is probably what you are more commonly used to, and more than 90% of our work that you see online is traditional foundation...applied using brushes or sponges and then blended into a flawless finish. Airbrush foundation is applied using an air compressor to spray a fine mist of foundation evenly over the skin, without the need to blend manually. Airbrush foundation is a lot thinner than regular traditional liquid foundation. This makes it more weightless, which provides a lighter coverage. While it is possible to build up the coverage, layering this up heavily defeats the whole purpose of the light weight airbrush foundation. For this reason, we typically only recommend airbrush if your skin is already close to flawless and won't require much coverage, and if lighter weight makeup is your preference. While traditional foundation will normally provide more coverage than you'll get from airbrush, we can also thin this out if you prefer a lighter coverage. When properly applied by a professional, no one should be able to tell which method was used to achieve the end result, because with both methods, the finished result will be equally flawless and long lasting needing only occasional minor touch ups, if any.
