Full Answer

Attendees at Dinair workshops learn airbrush techniques that cover techniques including airbrush, airshadow, airtan, airbrows and airhair. Other covered topics include contouring, beauty stenciling, spray building, spray-on tanning, spray-on nylons, moisturizer sprays and paramedic basics. Spray-on jewelry, basic skincare and 3D body art are also included in the workshop course.

Airbrush makeup is thinner than ordinary foundation. Because the cosmetic is misted on the skin, it makes blending very easy. The application proves to be seamless and smooth, whether the foundation is thin or opaque.

Paramedic airbrushing uses an opaque foundation to cover tattoos and skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis and hyperpigmentation. Because the makeup sits evenly on the skin, airbrushing makes the skin look flawless, whether regular or camouflage makeup is used.

Airbrushing provides both hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic coverage. It removes the need to use cotton balls, tissues and sponges. Simply clean the airbrush with soap and water after each application.
