Q: What is the difference in airbrush makeup vs. conventional/mineral
A: AIRBRUSH MAKEUP: A lightweight makeup applied through an air gun machine that produces a thin, even layer of makeup and creates a matte finish. One big difference in Airbrush makeup is the use of a air brush machine (most models require electric to operate) and Air gun. When the machine is turned on and the gun trigger pulled, a light spray of makeup comes out of the gun in a fine mist. The fine mist of color covers the skin and gives the
appearance of a flawless complexion. Your MUA will mix foundation colors for a perfect blend to match your skin tone. Since it's such a fine mist your true skin tone shows through which makes it look more natural and not so much caked on. It will not transfer onto clothing; in professional photographs it looks amazing! Airbrush makeup is waterproof (bring on those tears!) and it won't go anywhere until you wash it off. Be sure you don't wipe away sweat/tears and instead blot. This will help guarantee your 16+ hours of wear.
CONVENTIONAL/MINERAL MAKEUP: A Liquid, cream, or pressed powder that is usually applied with a sponge, brush or finger tips. Traditional makeup comes in the widest variety of any other makeup, with every shade available. It's also the most versatile of all the makeup; it can be as basic as a sheer tint of coverage, or combined with other properties to create a makeup that targets specific problems.
Some CONs: Most conventional makeup is not waterproof; leaving the potential to rub off on clothing. It will need the occasional touch-ups throughout the evening. If applied incorrectly you can get a sloppy cake-like finish.
