How To: Contouring & Highlighting With An Airbrush Makeup Gun

Dinair Airbrushing Contour

Contouring: With contouring we are aiming to add definition to our makeup so choose a shade or two darker than the foundation (such as a bronzer or some shade of brown). Mix this into the cup using no more than 4 drops of makeup. Lower your PSI to 12-13. Remember to always spray the makeup onto your hand or paper to ensure the airbrush is working correctly and you have the right shade. Cheeks: starting […]

How To: Apply Blush Airbrush Makeup

Temptu Blush Set

Blushing with airbrush makeup works so well because the fine mist action gives you a subtle hint of color resulting in a natural ‘flush’ look. Some people like to apply blush before foundation so it doesn’t stand out as much. I prefer blushing after foundation, contouring and highlighting as it’s almost like putting the icing on the cake. Choose a PSI between 12-15 (remember that a lower PSI is easier to handle) Just 2 drops […]

How To: Apply Eye Shadow with Airbrush Makeup

Luminess Eye Shadow

Don’t be afraid of airbrushing around the eye. Once you are comfortable with holding the airbrush makeup gun and doing your foundation, contouring and highlights then start practicing eye shadow application. Since the eye area is quite sensitive and you will be adding finer detail lower your PSI to between 6-10 in order to give you more control. Just 3 drops of eye shadow makeup are enough. From just a few inches away apply the […]

How To: Do Brows with Airbrush Makeup

Dinair Brows

Like eye liner, it is possible to do the brows freehand with the airbrush though it’s much easier to use the stencils like those from Temptu and Dinair. Definitely when you get the hang of using the airbrush and are comfortable with the weight of it in your hand then go for it! Remember: Practice makes perfect. When airbrushing the brows, a low PSI is better for finer control and is also less hazardous around […]

How To Choose The Right Makeup Tones For Your Skin

Luminess Color Tones & Shades

Most airbrush makeup kits come with 4 tones of foundation which fall under a further 4 base shades: fair, medium, tan or dark. Generally our skin tones are classified as either neutral cool or neutral warm. Here’s a quick tip: to work out if you are warm or cool check the underside of your forearm. If the veins are more blue, then you most likely have pink undertones and are considered ‘warm’. If your veins […]

We’ll start this ‘how-to’ with a little note about some awesome training features offered by Dinair. The first is the “Less is More” bands which can be attached to the airbrush gun as a guide to teach you how far back to rock the lever.
