Hello Beautiful People!

There is a demand to look fabulous with every click of the camera and on high definition television, which can be intimidating.  There are three types of Airbrush paint that can aid in visual perfection and give you the flawless beauty confidence you want.

  1. Aqua-water based
  2. Alcohol based
  3. Silicone based

Aqua-water based is great for oily skin and should not be used on mature skin, younger skin and when engaging in activities that will cause excessive perspiration – i.e. a band that has a lengthy concert.

  • Aqua-water based paint gives a matte finish.
  • Aqua-water based paint can stay in place without the use of powder.
  • Aqua-water based paint can be thinned by using a few drops of distilled water.

Alcohol based (or Dura which Temptu calls it), is used on the body; it is good for FX such as tattoo and prosthetics. 

  • Alcohol based paint is waterproof only after powdering.
  • Alcohol based paint should not be used on the face because of the smell.
  • Alcohol based paint is removed with alcohol or baby oil.

Silicone based is good for mature skin, the molecule is bigger and the coverage is better.

  • Silicone based paint leaves a polished finish and gives the skin a radiant look.
  • Silicone based paint can remain manageable for a long period of time (use a brush or sponge).
  • Silicone based paint is thinned with a few drops of converter not water.

There you have it Beautiful People, the scoop on Airbrush Makeup.   The application is fast, easy and sanitary;  and it leaves you with a flawless finish that is camera and HD ready.

    • Hello Utta! Thanks for stopping by the blog.

      Airbrush Makeup is a makeup technique that is applied to the face or body with an airbrush gun. The Aqua-based, Alcohol-based, or the Silisone-based foundation (which ever one used), is placed in the airbrush gun and sprayed on the face or body.

      Airbrush foundations can be purchased from makeup stores or from online stores as well.

      Stay beautiful! xox

    • Hi there Pochina!

      Thank you as always for stopping by the blog, Your support is greatly appreciated. I am pleased you found the post about “Airbrush Makeup” informative. Until next post, stay beautiful! xx

  2. Hi dear, lovely work! I’m an island girl just like yourself, but have terrible oily skin especially in my t zone. Even if I’m not doing any activities, my t zone still appears oily. Is there anything I can do that would stop it, or at least minimize it. I feel because my skin gets so oily, my pores get dirty creating more pimples. Thanks for the help! God bless.

    • Hello My Island Girl! Thanks for stopping by the blog, I appreciate it.

      Oily skin is a challenge for most people and is evident by open and clogged pores, blackheads, you become prone to pimples and the skin can be sensitive.

      Oily skin can be the result of your diet, over cleansing, the change in climate or an overactive sebaceous gland.

      I am not a dermatologist, however, my regiment for proper skin care are: Cleansing, toning, moisturizing, exfoliating, astringent and masks. Additionally, I consume a lot of water, raw vegetables, fruits and nuts.

      For oily skin, your makeup foundation should be oil free and you should be prepared to powder frequently.

      If your oily skin is a challenge to manage, perhaps you should visit a dermatologist for consultation.

      Stay beautiful Island girl!

      Vanessa
