Why Airbrush Makeup Is Right for You

A simple mixture of tinted liquids and pressurized air could be the very thing you need to get through a big event with flawless makeup. Although the use of the airbrush for various purposes is not new, the scope of opportunities to use it has grown and settled comfortably into the world of cosmetics. So, why would you choose Temptu airbrush makeup instead of the traditional options? Let’s take a look at the advantages.

Airbrush Makeup Gives a Flawless Finish


Makeup applied at home or professionally using an airbrush is known to be longer-lasting that traditional cream makeups, particularly the foundations. If you have an event that will require between 12 and 14 hours of flawless makeup, airbrush is the way to go. Use it for:

  • Wedding day
  • Prom
  • Photo shoots
  • Other special occasions


When you buy regular foundation at the store, you have to choose among the skin shades available. However, with airbrush makeup, you can custom blend the foundations to get a color that perfectly matches your tone. The airbrush application process creates a fine mist that will appear nearly invisible to the naked eye, which means a more natural look for you. The flexibility of airbrush also allows you to experiment with theater or costume style makeup.

Additional Benefits

There are so many upsides to airbrush makeup, you may never want to go back to a traditional cream foundation. In addition to the makeup’s longevity and customization, here are some other benefits:

  • Hypoallergenic and great for sensitive skin
  • No alcohol or oil in the ingredients list
  • Flawless in photos
  • Resistance to sweat, tears and smears
  • Fragrance free
  • No risk of germs spread by your hands, sponges or cotton balls

All Ages

The fine mist of airbrush makeup is so light that you don’t have to worry about it settling into fine lines or making pores appear larger as many traditional liquid foundations do. This makes the airbrush approach ideal for all ages and skin types. The mist will conceal imperfections and even out skin tones with a barely there feel.

Additional Uses

With certain modifications, airbrush makeup can be used to cover up highly visible skin imperfections. Try it, along with treatment products from brands like Clinique, when you need to conceal things such as:

  • Tattoos
  • Rosacea and vitiligo
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks

Application Process

Airbrush makeup has a straightforward application if you have the right equipment. You’ll need an airbrush machine and the appropriate makeup to put in it. There are several types of liquids you can apply in just seconds with the machine, such as:

  • Foundation – both highlights and shading
  • Bronzer – for a summertime glow
  • Blush – adds a natural, healthy color to the cheeks
  • Primer – choose a solid base
