I’m a huge fan of airbrush makeup when done right. Now that’s a BIG IF.
Being an actor working in the professional world since 16, I’ve been exposed to a lot of different forms of airbrushing. Most of the time I’m not a huge fan.
Airbrushing when done carefully and well can create the most beautiful flawless skin finish a la Downton Abby. The makeup artist for the show uses airbrushing to create flawless, no makeup makeup on all the women.
Recently I was lucky enough to visit Dinair in North Hollywood to get a first hand look at their airbrush kits and makeup. Working with the makeup artist we found my perfect combination of shades for the perfect foundation match, a MUST for airbrush foundation, otherwise you end up looking like your wearing too much makeup.
|The color options are incredible!|
Dinair offers a very wide variety of colors, you will be able to find your perfect match! Mine is equal parts C128 & C110.
One of the benefits of ordering an airbrush kit from Dinar is that they come with a set of 4 foundation shades based on your skin tone. You can choose from Fair, Medium, Tan, or Dark. This will give you a great variety of shades to play with and mix and match for your perfect shade. Great for beginners and professions building their kit.

My Tips for using airbrushing on yourself and clients expecting a flawless look.
1- Color match perfectly!
2- Less is more
3- Start slow and build up if you need to
4- Prep the skin with moisturizer and primer
5- Practice Practice Practice!
Airbrushing is wonderful for working on lots of clients and to get the flawless skin look. It is sanitary and quick. It talks me less then 5 minutes to apply foundation on my whole face and clean the gun for the next use. Watch my video demo here.
