“One of the biggest benefits of airbrush makeup is that it doesn’t require you to touch your face,” shares Hughes. Because you don’t need a brush, sponge, or fingers to apply the product, this technique is more sanitary, making it better for acne-prone skin. It’s also faster to apply than regular makeup (you’re just misting your face), and you use much less product than traditional formulas (10 times less, according to Hughes). The best part? Because of its lightweight consistency, airbrush makeup does not feel like makeup. “Whether you’re the makeup lover that doesn’t walk out of the house without a full face on or that person who has never worn foundation, you’ll love the fact that airbrush makeup lets your skin breathe,” notes Hughes.
The downside? You will need to give yourself time to clean the airbrush nozzle right after you’re done so that makeup doesn’t clog the applicator. Plus, it’s not exactly intuitive; therefore, it will require some practice before you’re able to master the technique. (Then again, so do false lashes, but that never stopped us.) Luckily, there are plenty of airbrush makeup tutorials to help guide you.
