I get asked this a lot, if I do airbrush. I used to do it, and liked it but the pros for using traditional makeup are just so much more than airbrush.
DOES IT LAST LONGER Airbrush doesn't necessarily hold better or longer, especially now that there are so many brands of makeup that are, 24hr wear, sweatproof, makeup setting sprays etc. Airbrush in order to last longer needs to be silicone based. They last the same when used and applied properly.
DOES IT COVER MORE Airbrush doesn't cover imperfections as the coverage is lighter. I can get better coverage using makeup and brushes
IS IT BETTER FOR MY SKIN TYPE If used on dry skin it can become flaky, and peels. Even some normal skin types. It also comes in very limited shades vs regular makeup. So you can match way easier with traditional makeup.
COSTS Airbrush is more money always - and I can accomplish the same without so why spend more :)
