Airbrush Makeup

When I’m looking for new makeup, I always try to find products that will look natural (to the point where it looks like I’m not even wearing makeup) on my skin rather than having it look like I have way too much on, otherwise known as “cakey”. One method that I’ve always been interested in trying is the airbrush technique. I’ve heard such wonderful things about this style of makeup, and was so excited when Belletto Studio reached out to me in hopes of a product review. One thing that really caught my attention is the fact that airbrush makeup aims to even out skin tones and create a flawless, lightweight finishing effect on the skin…which is exactly what I’ve been looking for!


To start out, this beautiful and simple airbrush set includes an airbrush machine, brush painter, foundations/bronzing water-based products, and some additional makeup items to complete the whole look. Also, this whole kit comes in a small, handy little bag which is great for traveling!


The foundations come in a variety of shades to suit any skin tone. Also included in this pack are darker shades for contouring and blushes for a bit of color.


When getting ready to use the airbrush machine, once you have the tube all set up and the box plugged into a power source (the machine comes with a very easy to read instruction manual), the next step is to pick out your foundation shade and add a few drops (I usually do 5-6 drops) into the little funnel which is connected to the airbrush painter.


Once you have your foundation ready to go in the painter brush, it’s time to turn on the airbrush machine yay! Simply turn the dial to ON (you should see a green light and hear a little humming noise) and select a speed that you feel comfortable with. For foundation, I usually put it somewhere in the middle so it’s at a medium speed.


Here’s a picture of my skin without any foundation on. I have a few blemishes and freckles that I like to cover up with makeup. Ultimately, my goal is to have an even skin tone with no major distractions, such as red spots.


On the painter brush, there is a little nozzle that goes back and forth (my pointer finger is on it). This nozzle allows you to control how much air and makeup comes out of the front of the brush. For foundation, I pull the nozzle back about 3/4ths of the way.


Hold the brush about 5 or 6 inches away from your face and move it in a circular motion to get maximum, steady coverage.


And that’s it! This technique is so easy and simple, I absolutely love it. Not to mention, my skin feels so soft and even. Let your face dry for about a minute or so before using the bronzers/blushes.
