Now is a great time to experiment with new makeup techniques, but applying a full face of makeup with only an airbrush? That sounds like a job for a professional! Enter makeup icon James Charles who says it took (even) him FOUR FAILED ATTEMPTS before he created this video.
According to Charles, airbrush makeup is not new – it’s been used for years in the film industry, particularly in horror films, but it is new to this makeup guru. Inspired by a TikTok video, Charles got to work, but kept getting splotchy results. He decided to try one fourth and final time, after doing his research and calling in some experts.
Starting with his eyebrows and eyelids, he works through putting on a full face of makeup with an airbrush. You can tell that he is obviously THRILLED that things are going well this time around. I think I even heard him ponder if he should be using an airbrush to apply foundation all the time…. until it’s contour time, that is. Uh oh!
What do you think about the final results? Did he nail it? If you’re now hooked on the magic of airbrush makeup, you have GOT to see the girl that inspired James Charles to begin with. AirbrushMuabyZ has some crazy good airbrushing skills – if I could just get my hands on her special eyebrow template, I could definitely improve my look! Ha! Pretty sure I would spray that makeup straight into my eyeballs, but dang her rainbow eye makeup sure looks super cool!
You might have thought that things like eyeliner and lip detail would be finished off with a typical product, but nope! This girl is amazing – she finishes her ENTIRE look with the airbrush. Alright, who’s going next with the airbrush makeup attempt?
