Airbrush Makeup vs Traditional Makeup

During many of our beauty consultations with Beauty Asylum's brides we get the common question, "What is the difference between airbrush makeup and traditional makeup?"

"Airbrush makeup is a fine mist of controlled air that pushes out color with a compressor for an even finish. It can be sprayed onto the face for a flawless coverage and long wear. The products can be used for foundation, bronzer, blush, and even more."

Imagine if you were spraying paint across a white wall in your bedroom. We're repainting this wall white to freshen it up and make it pop again. Naturally, white displays every little detail. We want our wall to be perfect. It does not mean we want it to be a totally different color nor do we want a heavy amount of paint layered on just to enhance the wall again. The same idea goes into play for makeup and perfecting the skin for a flawless finish. If (makeup) does not go on evenly we will see every little imperfection.  


Airbrush makeup is my personal preference for the seamless coverage and flawless natural finish. The products are non-comodegenic (it won't clog your pores), light-weight, and it offers a bond that will stay strong for 6 to 8 hours.

There's hardly an instance where I would recommend anything other than airbrush makeup for portrait photography or production. When a film or show is shot/aired in HD every little detail on an actor's face will stand out. Both applications have their pro's and their cons but the key factor is the person behind the product and understanding less is more. At the end of the day we want to look like the same person but the best version. Read below to see if traditional makeup or airbrush makeup would be better for you!



Some days I will go out and not wear much makeup. Makeup is a preference and level of comfort. Most importantly, you should look in the mirror and feel amazing. An industry professional will listen to your concerns and ask questions to get the best idea of what look you're trying to accomplish. The end result you should look like the best version of yourself.
