One of the primary goals that a woman has when she is applying facial foundation, is to achieve an appearance of having ultra-smooth skin. This means that no pores will be visible. No oiliness will be visible. In short, most women want for their faces to look flawless when they apply facial foundation. While many traditional foundations promise women the look of smooth and flawless skin, the most effective method for a woman to achieve the look of flawless foundation, is by having airbrush makeup applied to the face.
Airbrush makeup refers more to the process than it does to the actual foundation. When foundation is airbrushed to the face, a special airbrush machine must be used. Traditionally, airbrush machines are used in painting and in creating visual art. People use these machines, because the machines sprays paint in a fine and powerful mist to objects. When the paint dries, the result is extremely smooth and soft looking. There are no paint lines, nor are there any variations in paint hue. The same principle applies to using an airbrush machine, or an airbrush gun as it is called, on the face.
When foundation makeup is applied to the face, a special machine used for cosmetic application is used. It should be noted that foundation that has been especially formulated for airbrush guns are used as well. This is because traditional foundation is too thick to use in an airbrush gun. Therefore, airbrushing foundation needs to be formulated, so that it can be sprayed out of the machine, and applied to the face. Up until recently, having foundation airbrushed to one's face was something that only celebrities and the very wealthy were able to have access to. However, women from most walks of life can experience airbrushed foundation being applied to their skin.
However, many will find that using an airbrush gun to apply facial foundation can still be very expensive. An airbrush gun has to be special ordered. Specially formulated facial foundation needs to be ordered in advance as well. Touching up airbrush makeup isn't an easy proposition either. It's not practical to carry around an airbrush gun in one's purse or tote! These reasons are why many women prefer to use products, such as mineral makeup.
Mineral makeup offers many women the same benefits of using airbrushed foundation, without the expensive price tag. All a woman has to do, is order her compact of mineral powder foundation. She applies her makeup with a brush, and that's it! Since this type of foundation is so convenient, a woman doesn't have to worry about carrying around a cumbersome machine. Any woman who wears mineral powder foundation can also touch up her face anyplace she'd like to, unlike airbrush foundation.
So, while airbrushed foundation provides a flawless look for one's face, it's not as practical or inexpensive as using mineral powder makeup is. Both forms of foundation application will make the skin look beautiful. However, it seems that for today's busy woman, she'd do better wearing a naturally-based foundation that is less fussy to deal with.
