Airbrush Makeup

Ciao bella,

Applying a good foundation can be difficult. But when applied properly it should look completely natural. The only way to achieve that true look is professional airbrushing. It will make you camera-ready.

Airbrush make-up has been used for decades by the film industry. As far back as Ben-Hur in the 1920s this technique reigns supreme to cult status. Ever since Demi Moore’s 1992 cover shot on Vanity Fair, the actress was wearing nothing but a painted-on suit that a make-up artist created with airbrushing. It caused quite a stir and a trend was set.

Today airbrushing has gone mainstream. From countless celebrities that relied on this flawless look to the everyday woman.

Traditional foundation can look and feel cakey or thick. But airbrush make-up leaves a light seamless veil of color on the skin by misting it on for sheer, flawless coverage. It minimizes imperfections giving skin a natural-looking finish that looks radiant in real-life situations.

What about all those newscasters? Their complexions always look so great. The answer is airbrush make-up.

So for that special occasion whether it’s a big birthday, or a bride, or a prom queen, find a salon nearest you that does airbrush make-up. Are you ready for your close-up?

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
