Airbrush makeup is in demand now more than ever. Brides request airbrush makeup for its long lasting, durable, and water resistant flawless finish. Many studios and actors require makeup artists to use only airbrush makeup for their foundation application, because of current HD technology. Some studios won’t even hire makeup artists without this important skill and equipment. Airbrush is a requirement for special fx artists who use the airbrush gun to create fx they can’t get otherwise. Airbrush makeup is the quickest solution for body makeup and flawless coverage used on brides, models or actors to create the illusion of tan skin, or in fashion shows, print, or theater, to create either a fantasy makeup look or a character. Nothing covers tattoos better than airbrush makeup. Topics covered: Care and cleaning of airbrush gun and compressor, assembly and disassembly of the airbrush gun, troubleshooting, basic beauty application including foundation, eyebrows, blush, highlight and contour, body makeup, fantasy, creating and using stencils, covering tattoos, bruises, scars and stretch marks, and insider tricks to using the airbrush and airbrush makeup.
