How to Make Air Brush Makeup with Foundation?

by Pathlie Lee Business consultant

If you love putting on makeup and you believe in its power to help women achieve the confidence they need, then you’ll want to know all about airbrush makeup. With more and more pros using airbrush makeup for their clients—particularly for the makeup of the bride, The Knot says—switching to airbrush makeup and learning the techniques can help you gain more clients in your salon.

If this is your first time to try it out, these tips should serve as a guide for you.

Look for a good kit

If you’re a pro and you want to learn how to apply airbrush makeup so you can provide a wider range of services to your clients, then nothing short of a professional airbrush makeup kit will do for you. If you’ve got a knack for learning makeup, then it won’t take you long to improve your skills. That means you’ll need to use a makeup kit that can handle the demands of your job and help you create the looks that your clients want. These should include the Pro 2 Speed Rose Gold Kit, 2-Speed PRO Extended kit and the Icon Pro Airbrush System, just to name a few.

Prep your skin

The best person to try the professional airbrush makeup kit out on is you. Start the session by prepping your skin, InStyle says. Make sure it’s clean of everything. Apply moisturizer to soften the surface and ensure easy absorption of the airbrush makeup.

Get the gun ready

Pick the colors you’ll want to mix up, load it up the gun and you should be good to go. Make sure you pick the right blends, though. It often takes time to get the blend right so be patient. Once you’re satisfied, test the shade by spraying a bit into a tissue and checking the color to see if it matches the one of your skin or not.

Position it right

Don’t start spraying until your skin is ready. Then put the device about 4 to 5 inches from your face and pull the trigger. That’s going to release a mist. If you want to even out area, but you’ve got some problems—blemishes, redness and more—then get the gun a bit closer. Apply it about 1 inch less from your face for a spot-treatment on any of the areas that you want to even out. Once you get to broader applications, put the gun about four to five inches away.

Go for round motions

Move the gun in a circular motion but be sure to be on your toes. It’s easy to lose yourself in the circular motion, but that does come with the risk of overapplying the foundation. Stop to assess the coverage. If you think you need a bit more, wait until the layer is dry before you go again. 


It’s going to take you some time before you can apply foundation and makeup like a pro. But starting off with an excellent kit will help you achieve the best results, right from the get. Shop around for options like the 2-Speped Pro Black and Rose Gold Extended Kit or the Icon Pro Airbrush System and get started on learning airbrush makeup.
