Course Content

Airbrushing makeup is flawless and exciting way to provide your clients with a beauty makeup or tattoo cover, which is long lasting, provides amazing coverage and gives flawless Coverage. It lasts up to 18 hours and can even be water resistant.

What is Airbrushing?
Airbrushing is where a light liquid foundation is gently sprayed onto the face. It places tiny pixels of pigment onto the face which looks flawless to the naked eye.

This method can cover the most challenging of skin types without giving a heavy look to the foundation.

Tattoo Covering
Airbrushing is the best way to cover tattoos for several reasons. It's light on the skin, flawless and long lasting. It is a much better alternative to using heavy layers of concealer. It is waterproof and can last up to 3 days if maintained properly. It is quick to apply and will not rub off on to your clothes or more importantly, your wedding dress.

This is also a great method for covering scars, birthmarks and bruises.
