Whoever said “good for your skin” makeup didn’t exist was lying. Looking at you RBF Sephora girl. Rock Candy Beauty’s vegan airbrush makeup formula was developed to have lasting skin benefits. Not to mention the airbrush system might be one of the most high-tech and sanitary ways to apply your makeup. EVER. If you have sensitive skin, are prone to breakouts, or want a foundation that’s good for the environment and kind to animals, let’s take a look at the many reasons that vegan airbrush makeup is good for your skin (and your soul).
No More Brushes
Ditching the makeup brushes and the foundation sponge is THE best thing that you can do for your skin. When not sanitized properly, makeup brushes (especially the foundation sponge) are a breeding ground for bacteria. Yikes. When you’re using makeup brushes daily, you’re exposing your complexion to some pretty harmful toxins that can potentially cause breakouts and lead to skin irritations. Plus, a lot of those makeup sponges your favorite YouTuber uses are made up of synthetic material that can cause allergic reactions.
Rock Candy’s airbrush makeup systems are zero drama. It’s super simple to use and it takes literally five seconds to clean between uses saving you some serious time in front of the sink deep cleaning brushes. Your pores will also thank you when you make the airbrush makeup switch. Airbrush makeup systems apply foundation in a lightweight mist that sits on top of the skin without sinking into the pores. Traditional liquid foundation applied with a makeup sponge gives your skin zero room to breathe. Think about. You’re essentially pushing a thick product right into pores practically asking for a breakout. (I just cringed a bit writing that).
Amazing Skin Benefits
Vegan airbrush makeup isn’t just any ol’ foundation you can buy off the shelves at Sephora. It’s thoughtfully formulated with no fluff chemicals and real natural ingredients that have lasting skincare benefits. The ingredients label might read closer to a moisturizer than a traditional synthetic-based liquid foundation.
Let’s break down a few ingredients you’ll find in the NoFilter 4K airbrush foundation.
Oat Bran Extract: This organic airbrush makeup ingredient is a powerful antioxidant that combats environmental toxins and prevents premature wrinkles. It also has skin soothing benefits.
Canola Oil: Canola Oil is what gives this vegan airbrush foundation its bomb natural radiance. This multi-tasker is a source of Omega acids that boosts the skin’s immune system.
Aloe Vera: This botanical ingredient is my all-time fave! Aloe Vera works to balance the skin’s pH system and soothe the skin. Whether your skin is savagely oily or severely dry Aloe Vera is able to read the skin a deposit hydration where needed.
Here’s a few popular ingredients found in your average liquid foundation that’s not in vegan airbrush makeup
Parabens: A potentially toxic chemical that easily penetrates the skin and interferes with the body’s natural hormone function.
Octinoxate: Octinoxate is a controversial chemical compound that has been linked to harming animals and the environment.
Phthalates: A dangerous chemical that is known to produce toxic and cancerous substances in the body. Phthaltes have been officially blacklisted from all cosmetics in the European Union.
Zero Powder Needed
Beauty myth busters time here. Despite what any beauty guru says, layers upon layers, upon layers of powder makeup on top of a liquid is not okay for your skin. Can’t you feel your pores begging you to breathe under there. I know that I can. Because vegan airbrush makeup stays put no matter what, you’re able to cut out all the strenuous amounts of powder product that is weighing down your complexion. Vegan airbrush makeup is non comedogenic and acne friendly. In fact a few of the NoFilter 4K Foundation’s ingredients actually help out your pores and acne prone skin including, chia seed extract which calms skin irritations, oat bran extract which helps reduce the appearance of acne scarring, and panax ginseng callus extract that helps reduce hormonal breakouts.
Not too shabby right?
Treat Yo’ Self With Vegan Airbrush Makeup
Like I said, airbrush makeup isn’t only good of your skin, it’s good for your soul! Yes, you’ve heard it a 1000 times, but a healthy glow comes from the inside out. Switching out your average old, hum drum products for a vegan airbrush foundation routine is one of the highest (and most fun) forms of self-care that you practice. I’ve noticed a greater connection with the universe since switching over to all natural, vegan-friendly products… and frankly, that’s a glow that you can’t even get from a high dollar serum or sheet mask.
