What is Air-brush make-up?

Redhead model with caption “Airbrush Makeup”

It is a fine mist of specially formulated foundation that is sprayed with an airbrush gun that is powered by a professional beauty air-brush compressor. The fine mist gently covers the skin, to give the appearance of a flawless complexion. This mist covers the skin lightly allowing the skin to breath, looking more natural and not exaggerating your pores. Airbrush makeup will leave your skin feeling light, not “cakey”.
