Although I am a makeup junkie, I wasn’t familiar with airbrush makeup until I was introduced to the Dinair system. This system uses a small airbrush to apply everything from foundation and blush to eyeshadow and even eyeliner.
Dinair is unlike anything I’ve ever used before, so there was a little learning curve. I’m still perfecting my technique, but essentially, you plug in this airbrush and add a few drops of whichever makeup you want – foundation or cheek/eye color – and then gently begin spraying it on the area you want to cover. You can adjust the pressure from low to high, with the highest setting intended only for cleaning out the airbrush with its cleaning formula and water.
Here is a look that I created almost entirely with Dinair makeup; the only things I’m wearing that aren’t Dinair are my mascara and lip gloss. The first thing I did was put sparkly gold color in the airbrush and cover my eyelids, one at a time, to create a pretty base. Next, I attempted to use the Jet Black color to create eyeliner, but I have not perfected this technique yet so it didn’t turn out right; I ended up just covering the eyeliner mistake with more sparkly eyeshadow. The eyeshadow is not hard to do, but creating fine lines is difficult for me as I’m a new user. They do include stencils for both eyes and brows, so it’s just something I need to practice more.
Next, I used the lightest brow color to fill in my brows a bit. I used a light hand with the color as I thought going too dark on my blonde brows would be too much for the look I was going for. I did overshoot the brows a little bit, but I was able to just remove the excess color outside the brows, so it turned out well.
Then, I covered up trouble spots like my under eye circles using the corrective concealer in alabaster. This is the one Dinair product I used that is applied by hand rather than the airbrush. To follow the concealer, I sprayed the foundation over my face; the foundation is the easiest to apply, but you must be patient, grasshopper; it’s easy to think that you’re not getting enough coverage and go to heavy with it. Use a light hand and little by little, the foundation will subtly take shape.
Finally, I added a light spray of blush, but not much; I don’t usually use blush because I have a lot of color and flush in my face as it is, so I can get too red wearing blush.
This makeup is so much fun! I think it creates some great looks, and I have already used it for special occasions, like when I officiated a wedding on Halloween:
I’m excited to watch more of the Dinair beauty how-to videos so that I can develop my skills further!
