  • It is comparatively pricey and will take a huge lump from your pocket.
  • It is a tough job to find an expert airbrush makeup artist as the practice came into full swing only from the last decade. Choosing the right makeup artist is a more important job rather than finding the type and brand and all sort of things. When the right artist is found, the right type is suggested and the right method is practised.


If you are still confused about choosing between airbrush and traditional makeup, you can go for a combination of both depending on your skin type and the makeup artist’s suggestion.

You can use the traditional concealers and foundation for the base if you have a lot of breakouts and then add a final layer of airbrush makeup to give it the flawless look an added radiance.

If you find airbrush makeup too little for your skin, then apply the base with an airbrush and add a final layer with the traditional products.
