Diary of a Make Up Artist

Airbush Make Up

After recently qualifying as an Airbase Make up Trainer I thought I would write a blog all about airbrush make up. There are many benefits of using airbrush make up. One of the main reasons is that it looks great on camera especially HD TV. The best thing about airbrush make up now is that is available to everyone thanks to the small compressors that are now available. I use it on myself, Brides, Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride as well as at photo shoots and on film sets. The picture below is of girl band pretty attraction that I recently used airbrush make up on for their promotional shoot with MK Vibe records.

Having a flawless finish and weightless application it never feels heavy on the skin and makes you look naturally radiant. Being silicon based it is heat and water resistant and allows the skin to breathe. It’s especially good for problematic skin to as it covers so well.

Airbrush make up is sprayed on to the skin using a tiny spray gun. Products applied are foundation, blusher and bronzer. Airbrushing is also a popular way to cover tattoos and pigmentation on any part of the body. The colours range suits all skin tones. There are seven foundation shades that can also be custom blended to create the perfect base. Airbrushing is a hit with celebrities. It has been used in theatre productions Pricilla Queen of Dessert and Love Never Dies. Airbase was also used on the movine St Trinians 2.

Beauty Call recommends Airbase products and they are available to buy in our Boutique. There is also an Airbrush make up course running on the 2nd May at the Beauty Call Studio in Shoreditch, London.

Have a look at my demo on the Beauty Call channel. Any questions please e-mail me

Bye for now!
