Traditional Makeup Application:
Traditional makeup is applied using brushes, sponges and applicators. It tends to be quicker than airbrush application and can also be built up from light to full coverage, depending on your preference. Traditional foundation is often in the form of liquid or cream consistency and can have an oil, water or wax base depending on the formulation. Katie's favourite High Definition foundations are by Cinema Secrets, Kett Cosmetics, Graftobian, and Gorgeous Cosmetics.
Airbrush makeup application is a light mist that is applied through an air compressor and airbrush gun. The coverage is lighter than traditional brush application, however it can be layered and built up to medium coverage. It's a great option for people who don't like the feel of wearing a lot of makeup as it's weightless when worn. It does require a longer application time to allow for colour blending and layering. It looks lovely and natural in photographs and does have good staying power throughout the day. Airbrushing is not recommended for dry skin however as the air that passes through the gun creates more dryness and saps moisture out of the skin. Note: Eye and lip products are applied with brushes only. Katie chooses to use Elementwo Airbrush products.
