by Pathlie Lee Business consultant

Airbrush makeup isn’t impossible to learn. However, it does take some getting used to. If you want to improve your skills until you apply and layer like a pro, then you’ll want to study tricks and techniques to help you.

Always moisturize

Remember to prep your skin before you start applying any makeup, The Odssey Online. However, not all moisturizers will be a good match for you. Discover which products and brands work.Do you have dry skin? Oily skin or a combination of both? Once you’ve got the right moisturizer in place, your makeup will stay on much longer and better. If your skin isn’t moisturized, that’s going to affect the results and quality of the makeup. You might even have a hard time achieving the flawless look you’re after.

Keep your distance

One of the first things you’ll need to learn when you start using an airbrush makeup machine is the importance of keeping your distance. Don’t get the nozzle too close to your face. Hold it about 4 to 6 inches from your skin and maintain that distance throughout. If you go any closer, then that’s going to give you blotchy makeup. It will also give you poor coverage, Allure says.

Learn the right direction and distance

Don’t just randomly apply the makeup. When you spray the foundation, do it in a circular motion. Masklike lines will make your foundation look unnatural. Going in circles will soften the edges and eliminate those lines. That’s going to ensure your makeup looks better. Also, take it easy on the eyes. The skin around your eyes is delicate. You’ll want to turn down the pressure of the airbrush gun. Hold the gun about four inches away from your face. That should give you better control over it.

Clean up your tools

If you are switching from dark to light colors, or you’re going from a shimmery finish to a matte one, then remember to clean up your brush before you use it. A few drops of cleaning solution should be enough to get the job done. You can also use warm water to give your airbrush gun a much-needed rinse. Be sure to unplug the compressor before you do this.

Complete the makeup routine

When you apply a layer of foundation, wait about 60 seconds for the makeup to dry completely. If you rush it, you’ll only smudge or smear it. Wait until it has settled so you can avoid messy makeup issues. Once the foundation is in place, you should follow it up with a blush and bronzer. That should give you the perfect base. Don’t forget to do a bit of quality control. Check for any smudges or over application. The more you improve your skills, the better you will be at catching mistakes.
