The beauty industry is constantly evolving, and with it comes a plethora of makeup products and techniques. One such technique that has gained significant popularity in recent years is airbrush makeup. But is airbrush makeup worth it? In this Aeroblog post, we'll delve into the world of airbrush makeup, exploring its benefits, drawbacks, and whether it's a worthwhile addition to your beauty routine.
What is Airbrush Makeup?
Airbrush makeup is a technique that involves using an airbrush gun to spray a fine mist of makeup onto the skin. Unlike traditional makeup application methods, which often involve brushes, sponges, or fingers, airbrush makeup provides a flawless, even, and natural-looking finish. It's commonly used in the entertainment industry, particularly for high-definition television and film, where perfection is essential.
The Pros of Airbrush Makeup
- Flawless Finish: One of the primary reasons people turn to airbrush makeup is its ability to provide a flawless finish. The fine mist of makeup creates an even and smooth complexion, covering imperfections and blemishes effortlessly.
- Long-Lasting: Airbrush makeup is known for its longevity and Aeroblend airbrush makeup touts long-wearing (up to 10+ hours) and transfer resistance. It tends to stay in place for hours without the need for touch-ups, making it ideal for special occasions like weddings or long days at the office.
- Customizable: Airbrush makeup is highly customizable. While Aeroblend shades can be used right out of the bottle with no mixing required, makeup artists can often mix different shades to achieve the perfect color match for your skin tone, ensuring a seamless and natural look.
- Buildable Coverage: Whether you prefer a sheer, natural look or full coverage, airbrush makeup allows for buildable coverage. You can layer the product to achieve your desired level of coverage without it feeling heavy or cakey.
- Hygienic: Airbrush makeup is hygienic since there's minimal contact with the skin. It is necessary to run water or airbrush cleaner after each session to clean the stylus as opposed to makeup brushes that are often not cleaned after every use and thus harbor bacteria. This makes it a suitable option for individuals with sensitive or acne-prone skin.
The Cons of Airbrush Makeup
- Initial Cost: Airbrush makeup systems can be expensive upfront, as they require an airbrush gun, compressor, and airbrush-specific makeup products. However, Aeroblend Airbrush Starter kits are the best bang for your buck, containing everything you need to airbrush right out of the box! It takes very little product to achieve the coverage you need when compared to traditional makeup so most find that the investment is worthwhile in the long run. Be sure to sign up for Aeroblend’s email newsletter and for Aeroblend’s Reveal Rewards program for our special offers.
- Learning Curve: Achieving the perfect airbrush makeup application takes practice. With practice, many find airbrushing makeup is much easier and even faster than traditional makeup applications.
- Maintenance: Airbrush guns require regular cleaning and maintenance to ensure they function correctly. Neglecting maintenance can lead to clogs and uneven application. However, cleaning your Aeroblend airbrush stylus is as simple as running water (or even better with Aeroblend Airbrush Cleaner) through the stylus after each session.
- Limited Shade Range: Some airbrush makeup brands may have a limited shade range compared to traditional makeup, which can be a drawback for individuals with very specific skin tones. But you won’t have that problem with Aeroblend’s 20-airbrush foundation shade range. Additionally, all Aeroblend Personal Starter kits come with a Color Match Guarantee! If none of the shades in your Personal Starter kit match you, we send additional shades for you to try...for FREE!
- Portability: Many Airbrush makeup systems can be bulky and less portable than traditional makeup products, making them less convenient for travel. However, our compact Aeroblend Airbrush system is not bulky at all and is great for travel, especially when paired with our Aeroblend Customizable Cosmetic Case.
So is Airbrush Makeup Worth It?
The answer to whether airbrush makeup is worth it depends on your personal preferences, needs, and circumstances. If you value a flawless finish, and long-lasting makeup, and are willing to invest a small amount of time in learning the technique, airbrush makeup can be an excellent choice for daily wear and special occasions. It's particularly favored by brides and professional makeup artists for its ability to withstand long hours of wear and provide photogenic results. But with that said, many non-makeup artists have successfully incorporated Aeroblending into their daily makeup routine with fast and flawless results!

What a wonderful makeup! The Real Brush Creme Skin Perfector goes on so soft and a light cream feel. Just enough moisture and just enough dry to balance the creme feel. It looks and feel great. I use 035 for my olive skin complexion for a mature skin.
I have tried several brands of traditional foundation and airbrush foundation. I love this the best for each!
It’s perfect. The internal dividers make it configurable to meet almost any set of makeup items.
I just received my Creme Skin Perfector. It is a fresh clean feel, with easy application, and it is not a heavy feel, I love this cream protector on my face. This is the only makeup I use every day. And it does not have all the chemicals added to the makeup. That is my kind of makeup. Thank you, Aeroblend!

I loved my starter kit but wasn’t sure I had the right colors to try, so I ordered for FREE the extra samples. They were a huge help in figuring out what color I wanted to do. It was easy and quick to get the new samples, and so nice to not have to pay to try more colors!!
So light, amazing coverage and my skin has never been better! No more pushing makeup into my pores. ♥️

I am so glad I started using airbrush foundation a few years ago. I struggle with my skin and this is the best product I’ve found that doesn’t add to my struggle. People complement my skin when I wear it and are surprised to hear I’m actually wearing makeup because it’s so natural looking. Good ingredients and great product.
