The airbrush has become a significant tool for progressive beauty professionals. It is commonly used in the film industry and is now finding a home in the modern make-up artist’s repertoire, creating flawless glamour looks on all skin types, including difficult complexions.
In contemporary salons and spas, body spraying is in tremendous demand as Airbrush Sunless Tanning replaces harmful UV rays as the bronze of choice for modern, health conscious men and women.
Airbrush tattoo products by Medea and Artool offer an alternative to the real thing and are fun and easy to apply. Multifaceted artist, author, and instructor Pamela Shanteau takes it to a new level with elaborate body art using a combination of airbrushes. Using the Eclipse HP-CS, HP-BS and HP-BCS powered by a Power Jet compressor, she rides the cutting edge in her body art designs.
“Iwata has specialized and multi-purpose airbrushes for all of my endeavors in the world of beauty. For foundation make-up application I like to use the Eclipse CS and the HP-C Plus for its smooth atomization and ability to handle heavier make-up formulations. For airbrush tanning, I prefer the high output of the Eclipse BCS, but the Revolution BCR is also good as it has the finest atomization in its price range.
For fingernail art, I use several brushes in Iwata’s High Performance Plus Series because of their ability to use minimal air pressure and small amounts of paint for small, detailed work. The HP-A Plus is great for fine detail close-up work, the HP-B Plus is a great general purpose nail art brush and the HP-C Plus is the best choice when working with heavier paints or when mixing your own colors.
And whether I am working on faces, bodies or fingernails the Custom Micron has truly taken me to new levels while working in fine detail with precise control. It is the créme de la créme of airbrushes.”
