Of course, there are pros and cons to airbrush makeup. For instance, even though airbrush kits are available at variety of price points, they’re typically pricier than standard beauty blenders or foundation brushes. According to fashion and celebrity makeup artist Katie Mellinger, “The [airbrush] equipment requires a lot of maintenance, it’s expensive, and you really need to understand how the product works” (via Byrdie). In other words , airbrush makeup will ultimately give you better coverage, but it doesn’t come cheap. If you’re not worried about the price, however, it may be one worth investing in.
On the other hand, there’s quite literally no other product that works like airbrush makeup. Because of its application process and tools, you’re guaranteed an even and lightweight amount of foundation that will last you the whole night with little-to-no touch ups. For someone who works in a camera-facing or public-facing career, this could be a win-win situation. But for the everyday person who isn’t wearing makeup all the time? That’s unlikely to be practical. But ultimately, being aware of your budget, how often you wear foundation, and whether you’re dedicated to maintaining an airbrush applicator can help you make the decision. Regardless of what you choose, we know you’ll find a way to apply foundation perfectly.
