What is regular makeup?
Regular Makeup is applied by hand tools such as a brush, beauty blender, or sponge and it can be worked into the skin for an even finish. The coverage of regular makeup can range from a natural dewy glow to a matte heavy/full coverage based on the formula. Traditional products such as powder, bronzer, and blush can be used in conjunction with a traditional foundation.
What is airbrush makeup?
Airbrush makeup is a fine mist of controlled air that pushes out color (foundation) through a small gun attached to an air compressor. The foundation consistency is thinner than your traditional foundation allowing for a soft mist and steady stream of air to create an even product finish over the top of the skin. The foundation can be sprayed onto the face for flawless coverage and long wear. The makeup can also be applied with the intention of a soft natural look if desired. The different airbrush products can be used for foundation, bronzer, blush, and highlight. Think of it as a fun approach to extended wear foundation.
Benefits of Airbrush Makeup Kits
- Initial Cost
- Hygienic Application
- Natural and Healthy Appearance
- Breathable and Lightweight
Breathable and Lightweight: According to most users, these kits feel very light. On the other hand, regular kits feel thicker and greasy. It’s best for your skin as well because it lets your skin breathe and there will be no blockage of your pores. So, if you have acne-prone or sensitive skin, you can use this product without any worries.
Natural and Healthy Appearance: The makeup mist looks natural unlike the traditional kits. There will be no smudges or brush marks on your skin. Since the makeup is done in light layers, you won’t have the caked-on look.
Hygienic Application: One of the main benefits of an airbrush makeup kit is that they are quite hygienic. Therefore, there is no need to touch the product as you will be using the stylus to do the job. So, you can keep bacteria, oil and dirt away from your skin. This product is an ideal choice for people whose skin is more prone to breakouts. On the other hand, traditional makeup requires you to make use of your fingers, sponges and brushes. Also, the stylus is easy to clean. All you need to do is flush and wipe. Some kits also come with a cleaning solution that you can buy separately.
Initial Cost: As said earlier, airbrush makeup kits cost a bit more than regular kits. However, these products stand the test of time. Therefore, with the passage of time, these kits can help you save a lot of money. Aside from this, these kits can stay with you for years. So, you don’t have to spend money in order to buy a new kit.
