When applying makeup, achieving the look of a professional makeover is not that hard. It takes time and patience to get the perfect finish. There are a few rules when using foundation through the airbrush system, and knowing how to fix the mistakes that may occur can help you maintain the longevity of your product and create flawless looks. Here are a few major airbrush makeup issues that may occur when using your airbrush system:
Over or Under Spraying
This is a common mistake that happens to the best makeup artists. The key is taking your time and starting slow. One of the best ways to alleviate this problem is to add the first layer of foundation and let it dry. Take a look in natural light to see where you can add foundation if needed. Doing it this way will ensure you have a smooth, even finish.
There may be times when you are in a hurry and have applied your foundation too heavily. What do you do? Here are a few suggestions:
- Make sure you don’t have too much foundation in your stylus. Spray some on a paper towel or tissue to remove the excess.
- Monitor your hand movements. You may be applying too much pressure on the throttle. This plays a major role in foundation application. Try practicing using a light touch.
- Make sure your shade is the right one for your skin tone. If it’s too light or too dark, this could give the illusion of not being enough or being too much.
Airbrush Stylus Splatters
When applying foundation, there are a number of situations that can take place, including having makeup splattered everywhere. It’s another common occurrence that will disappear as you become more experienced at using your airbrush system. A few quick tips:
- Make sure to thorough clean the stylus every time it is used. You want to make sure you have enough water in the cup to create bubbles that will clean the stylus needle. Make sure you spray the liquid out until empty.
- When cleaning the stylus, make sure you completely take it apart to make sure there is no residue from the foundation.
Foundation is not adhering to the Skin
The world of makeup has changed. With the enhancements made to foundation, using an airbrush system is like having a series of beauty cocktails. You can’t have just one. There will be times when your makeup does not want to cooperate and may not stick to your skin. This could occur for a number of reasons, but there are certain steps you can take to remedy the situation:
- Prime your skin prior to applying the makeup. Primer will prep your skin’s texture to help the foundation stick.
- Use a setting formula. When getting a professional makeover, this is a staple that is always used. If you want the look of a professional, you need to use the tools. Make sure to let your foundation dry completely before applying the sealant.
These tips will help you get the most out of your Airbrush System and give you sleek, professional looks that will last all day. For every problem, there is a solution. These are a few quick beauty secrets just for you!
