I have been a Make-up artist for about 2 decades and i have been using different techniques and mediums ... similar to paintings i also call my foundation as medium ....from the cake  to Airbrush Make-up.


Airbrush make-up for me is such a life saver... it makes your job a lot easier and gives a flawless effect and as well its saves a lot of time ...here ill be showcasing different types of Airbrush products .. I am a Krayolan Airbrush user for years ,one thing i love with  Krayolan it has a very matte effect at the start when it begins to blend it gives a very luminous, velvety and silky feel and it lasts or stays  for more than 12 hours .

Krayolan Airbrush make-up for me has a very fine  in texture , very smooth silicon finish foundation  and it really layers your skin with similarly another skin with a minimal amount of the product it takes  6 to  12 drops  it can already cover the entire face  .

Airbrush makeup is makeup sprayed onto the skin using an Airbrush gun  instead of being applied with sponges, brushes, fingers, or other methods. It is popular in hollywood films and theater so as the celebrity sunless tanning ..... but now there are products  which are  designed for personal cosmetic use or home use. . Airbrush systems designed for these purpose are usually smaller and work at a lower pressures  designed for cosmetics than systems used in industrial applications which is designed for hard paints  .

according to my research in wikipedia

The technique was first used in 1925 on actors in BEN HUR  ,,..one of my best movies of all time and has since grown in popularity in the entertainment business and to date.

The History of Airbrush Makeup

In this article we will take a look at the history of Airbrush Make-up The first Airbrush was invented in 1879 by Abner Peeler using mostly spare parts from a jeweler’s  workshop, 4 years later a company by the name of Liberty Walkup began marketing Peeler’s invention. In 1893 Thayer and Chandler Art Materials presented the first modern airbrush at the World Columbian Exposition in Chicago, this device resembled the body of a pen and functioned similarly to the way the modern airbrushes do today. 
In 1958 MGM began production on their epic film Ben Hur  (1959) – during production the makeup artists found themselves needing to apply faux tans to the thousands of extras who were supposed to be Romans, the airbrush proved to be their answer. They began spraying the extras with a makeshift foundation and found that the method worked extremely well.

Its revival started in some early and more resent sci-fi films. It is used to enhance many alien characters, prosthetic make up. In the mid 70’s airbrush face painting emerged as a popular art form that leaked slowly into Hollywood studios. It was first seen in the hair and beauty trade shows, masquerade balls, make-up competitions . Temporary tattoos, conventional make up, fantasy make up, Bodyart, fingernails hair and even airbrush tanning are some of the styles being used today.

Uses

Airbrush makeup has become more popular with the advent of HIGH DEFINITION VIDEO and TELEVISION  (HD). Traditional powder or liquid based make-up can settle and appear in pores and wrinkles and be visible on HD film.

As the makeup is sprayed on, it connects with the skin as millions of droplets of formula. The formula can create an even, sheer, natural appearance to the skin that, if applied properly for a natural look, can appear natural and non-heavy like traditional makeup.

Airbrush makeup wears longer than traditional powder or liquid foundation able to stay put upwards of 12-24 hours. It can be used to cover five o'clock shadow " it means the beard " for men. Airbrush makeup is also available for eye shadow, blush, eyebrows and lips and can be layered, shaded, highlighted and contoured

Application wise, the technique is more sanitary than traditional makeup application due the artist never having to touch the skin. It's also faster, if done by a trained artist. Fantasy and special effects are able to be stenciled or created by freehand.

Ingredients

Airbrush makeup comes in six different formulas:
  • Water based: Finely ground pigments dissipated in water.
  • Polymer-water-based: A mix of water, polymers and pigment, when airbrushed on the skin the polymer dries leaving a continuous coating on the skin.
  • Polymer-SD40-alcohol based: Instead of using water like the polymer-water-based formula, it uses alcohol which assists with drying of the makeup on the skin.
  • Alcohol based: Also called "temporary airbrush inks" alcohol based formulas are generally used when creating fake tattoos.
  • Silicone-based: Uses silicone for longer lasting wear and without fading. Silicone-based can be thinned with certain types of formula additives, for lighter coverage.[3]
Airbrush makeup can be removed by using a 50/50 mix of isopropyl alcohol and isopropyl myristate.

1. Full Coverage, Sheer Texture: A true airbrush foundation is high in coverage, but thin in texture, offering a high-opacity or full coverage application that's dispersed as sheerly and evenly as possible. The result is perfect-looking skin achieved with a minimum of product.

2. Refined Pattern: The spray dot-pattern the airbrush puts down on the skin registers less on camera than the patterns and trace lines that brushes and sponges leave behind. However, as invisible as these marks may appear to the naked eye, they can be quite visible when your client's face is shown in Hi-Definition close-up or in a High Resolution Digital Photo.

While other advantages include speed of application, longevity, and durability, the true advantage of airbrush makeup is the beautiful finished result it produces. The special foundations for airbrush makeup is more expensive than that of regular makeup because of the consistency and special ingredients they use to make this very thin formula with maximum coverage!
