'Airbrushed’ makeup is a must have makeup skill for every successful makeup artist & should be an essential part of your makeup kit.

Airbrushed makeup is ideal for makeup artists working in HD, TV, Film, and Print. If your focus as a makeup artist is special occasion & bridal makeup the trend for clients to have their makeup airbrushed is increasingly popular. Why? Because a well-applied airbrushed makeup produces a flawless, natural finish, which looks fabulous, is light on the skin, smudge proof. The end result. Clients and Hollywood alike 'LOVE' it.
