Makeup artists have been using airbrush technology for makeup application in productions including fashion, film, television and theater for nearly 100 years, with Ben Hur filmed in 1922 being the first movie to utilize this method. The technique is ideal for makeup artists who need to apply makeup to several actors or models in a quick manner while still appearing flawless.
Fortunately for those of us who aren’t celebrities or models, we too can now get in on the stunning looks airbrush technology can deliver for special occasions including weddings as the service is now offered at many beauty salons, including Spa Imagine at Garza Blanca Puerto Vallarta.

Airbrush Technology Know-how
Instead of using brushes, sponges or fingers to apply makeup, a small air-operated sprayer is used by a skilled makeup artist trained in airbrush makeup application to add products including foundations and eyeshadow to the skin. Miniscule particles of pigment which have been meticulously chosen based on the client’s skin type and tone are ejected from the airbrush, giving it a photo-ready matte finish. Due to the tiny size of the particles, the makeup creates a uniform-looking veil of perfect coverage which can be layered until the desired look is achieved. Skin appears absolutely flawless and natural with imperfections and fine lines concealed. Eye shadow is applied in a precise manner to enhance the contours of your eyes while playing them up.
Weddings and Special Occasions
In addition to its complexion-perfecting qualities, airbrush makeup lasts a long time which is why it is an ideal choice for brides and their guests who want their unblemished look to stay that way no matter how late the party goes. Airbrush pigments are perfectly suited to warm climates like in Puerto Vallarta because they are heat and moisture resistant, allowing your makeup to appear salon-fresh all day long. Your skin will breathe a sigh of relief with airbrush makeup as you won’t have to reapply or use too much powder.
The makeup professional doesn’t need to touch the client’s skin or use brushes or sponges, making airbrush makeup application a hygienic process. A further benefit of airbrush makeup is the fact that its pigments are hypoallergenic and can be used on delicate or sensitive skin.
