These days if you are getting ready to take a perfect selfie, professional makeup is only a few clicks away. There are countless blogs about the best Instagram filter to use. And there are new apps every week that help you create a perfect face. But this article is not about a manufactured digital look; it’s about how you can put on your makeup every day and look like the professional you are.
What Makeup Is The Best For Your Skin?
You might have heard of airbrush makeup, and before you push this aside as something only models or professional makeup artists can afford – keep reading. This makeup technique uses an airbrush system in contrast to the more conventional makeup brushes or sponges. It is similar to the system that is used to apply a spray tan.
Start with clean skin. This is an important step that you should not skip. Cleanse your skin using facial wipes or water and a gentle cleanser. Then moisturize your skin. Wait a few minutes before applying anything more so your skin has a chance to absorb the moisture.
Pick the color closest to your skin. Using your airbrush system put a small amount of the 4k No filter foundation into the application cup and set the pressure that you prefer.
Hold the stylus at least four to six inches (Ten – Fifteen centimeters) away from your face. Then depress the trigger. It works very well if you apply in small circles. You can add a different color over the top and blend it in until you get the perfect color.
The layers are very light, and you will be surprised that it does not feel like traditional makeup. The natural ingredients and the unique application method helps the makeup to feel light on your skin. Your skin will still be able to breathe easily.
Finish with Rock Candy Beauty finishing spray, this will help set the makeup, so it lasts for hours. You now have the perfect foundation for the rest of your makeup. Touch-up with mascara and eyeshadow as usual.
It is essential to clean your stylus after each use. You don’t want the foundation to dry and clog up the nozzle. Most kits will include a cleaning solution that you can add into the cup and then spray until it comes out clean. Then clean the outside with a cotton ball or tissue.
