Airbrushing is mostly associated with professional makeup artistry, and rightfully so, but you don’t have to be a movie star to go for makeup. With that in mind, it’s only logical to know why you should consider airbrush makeup for your next big occasion.

For starters, airbrushing guarantees perfect makeup that will last all night without any hitches.

Airbrushing is done using a special stainless steel gun with a small air compressor that applies makeup through a needle-sized opening. This way, the smallest required amount of makeup can be applied making you feel weightless and most natural while achieving the most flawless look.

Airbrushing is done using specially-designed foundation, since regular foundation would be far too thick to be shot out of the gun.

Asides from recommended proper moisturizing, skin is ready for airbrushing at pretty much any point, given that it’s clean.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even purchase your own airbrush and practice makeup yourself. You probably won’t succeed at first, but with practice, it’s a decent alternative to traditional makeup, perfect for occasions when long-lasting makeup is of the essence — such as a wedding.
