During the hot summer months in Oklahoma, makeup is best applied like clothes – as minimally as possible, unless of course you are allergic to the sun like me. You guys, I am currently melting. However! When it’s 111 degrees outside and the humidity is that of the Amazon rainforest, there’s a thin line between the perfect bronzed, dewy glow, and the “I’m sweating in places I didn’t know existed please don’t touch me” situation. I have just stopped with makeup all together really because I end up just sweating it off so what the heck is the point??! The other day I had to walk 4 blocks because the parking downtown was hideous and I took off my sunglasses once I got into the restaurant and it looked as though I had two black eyes. A dear friend of mine who is a makeup artist told me about airbrush makeup and in my journey to simplify my summer makeup routine, I said sure! Absolutely ! I will try it! Krista is a makeup wizard and would never lead me down the wrong path.

What is airbrush makeup? Airbrush makeup artistry is a patented makeup application technique that utilizes compressed air to spray on a fine mist of makeup. It is the preferred technique for digital photography, high definition TV, and bridal work. Airbrushing makeup provides a camera ready velvety texture that lays on the skin in an even, misted pattern, creating the most natural finish to the naked eye that’s virtually invisible on the digital screen.

How does it feel? Airbrush makeup is exceptionally lightweight. Most clients say they feel as if they aren’t even wearing makeup. And I concur. OMG! This felt so incredibly lightweight my face. Major major plus for me. I hate anything that feels heavy.

What are the benefits of airbrush makeup? Airbrush makeup provides flawless coverage by minimizing skin imperfections while giving skin a beautifully natural finished looking result. It is water resistant and will last for up to fourteen hours or more. And I would personally recommend this to any girlina who has an event, especially if you can only get an appointment in the morning hours before your event or any event in the summer time. Hours later in this Oklahoma heat and my makeup looked flawless. It did not sweat off on my cell phone or my pillow! It's so bad but I even slept in it and it was still perfectly flawless the whole entire next day. I got so many compliments!

Is airbrush makeup right for everyone? Airbrush makeup is suitable for people of all ages and every skin condition. The makeup is hypoallergenic and fragrance free. In fact, airbrush makeup is the only makeup that is suitable for the new “High Definition” standard in television.
