- The Best Airbrush Makeup
The Best Airbrush Makeup Products That Promise Flawless Skin
Natural makeup days are all well and good, but sometimes you want to achieve a flawless, poreless and airbrushed finish that lasts all night long. And we’ve got you covered with our range of the best airbrush makeup products, including foundations, makeup brushes and even spray tans.
Airbrush face makeup is a great way to achieve a soft-focus effect like you would with an airbrush mist. These products help blur any imperfections, discoloration and fine lines. So, whether you’re heading for a long night of partying or prepping your wedding makeup, airbrush products are a great way to achieve fuller coverage and long-lasting flawless looks.
To help you out we’ve rounded up all our faves. Check them out below!
Foundations for airbrushed makeup
Perhaps the most important step for an airbrushed makeup routine is foundation. Medium to full coverage in a matte finish is best for this look in order to hide all pores, blemishes and shine.
This foundation ticks all the boxes for an airbrushed look; it's actually designed to stand up to the high definition of big screens! The long-lasting full coverage covers discoloration, impurities and shine while balancing your skin with white truffle extract and vitamin E.
Use the sponge that comes in this powder compact to get full coverage. The matte, velvety texture looks and feels amazing, and can also help lock in other liquid products.
Blurring fine lines and filling in pores is just what we want from our airbrushed-look makeup, and this matte foundation from Milk Makeup delivers. It also reflects light, evens out your skin tone and absorbs oil, while also balancing your hydration levels with hyaluronic acid.
Concealers for airbrushed makeup
Whilst dark circles (and any imperfections) are nothing to be ashamed of, they do kind of throw off the airbrushed makeup look, which is all about looking magazine-cover levels of flawless. Give any problem areas the extra touch-up they need with a full-coverage concealer.
While an airbrushed makeup look requires many layers of makeup, the last thing you want is to feel or look cakey. That's why we love this super lightweight concealer, which still manages to give opaque and long-lasting coverage. It'll blur away fine lines, colour correct and highlight or contour - all depending on your chosen shade - and will feel totally comfortable at the same time.
Huda Beauty's water-resistant, transfer-free concealer lasts all day long, hiding dark circles, redness, hyperpigmentation and more with a luminous, matte finish. It also contains green tea to shield you from external aggressors and jericho rose extract soothe and moisturize the skin.
Setting sprays and powders
It's no good putting in all this hard work if it's just going to disappear or smudge by 2 p.m. You'll want a setting spray or finishing powder (or both) to help lock in your look no matter what you get up to. A matte spray is going to be your best bet as this look isn't super shiny.
Remember, matte and poreless is the name of this game. That's why we recommend Benefit's POREfessional setting spray, which blurs pores and locks your makeup in place for up to 16 hours with a matte finish. The soft-focus effect of this spray also helps with your airbrushed look.
They also created a spray version, which prevents your makeup from fading and creasing, or from oiliness showing through. It's also great to spritz on throughout the day to refresh your look.
And as a bonus, a self tan can help hide any freckles, scars or discolouration on your body, or on your face that might still show through your makeup.
Airbrushed skin isn’t just reserved for your face. Gives your legs some TLC with this tanning mist which provides a 360-degree applicator and a streak-free wash of tan that helps blur any freckles, veins or scars. It’s definitely not a necessity for every social occasion, but it can help boost your confidence to go bare legged no matter the weather.
Or try this tanning drops, which allow you to customise your tan without blocking pores, staining clothing and sheets or looking too orange. Just put your desired amount of drops into a body lotion and enjoy the hydrating benefits of coconut, chia seed and avocado oils.
Or for an overnight glow, try this tanning oil, which hydrates your a nourishing blend of oils that includes argan, marula, jojoba and apricot. It also includes clinically proven complexes to improve your skin's firmness and combat signs of ageing. Build a subtle glow while also moisturizing your skin!
