What is Dermablend
What is Dermablend foundation?
A medium to full coverage foundation that easily covers imperfections with a lightweight finish. Delivers twice the coverage than regular foundations without the heavy look or feeling. The lightweight formula effortlessly disguises imperfections and evens skin tone, leaving a soft, natural finish. The product works great for oil skin and is water resistant almost water proof I would say. This non-comedogenic and fragrance-free foundation can last up to 16 hours, providing you with a flawless complexion all day long.

Do you do airbrush makeup?
Airbrush makeup is definitely one of the services we offer! However, like all makeup applications, the method is not suited for every skin type. We use both airbrush and hand applications depending on each clients unique needs.
What is the difference between airbrush makeup and traditional makeup?
While airbrush makeup is sprayed onto the face, traditional foundation is applied with a brush, sponge, or fingertips. Both methods can be used to create a flawless, durable finish. One of the big misunderstandings about airbrush makeup is that it is waterproof. Waterproof makeup can be applied by hand or by airbrush and the method of application does not impact how long the makeup lasts. Everyone has different skin types and different needs, so it’s important to have a foundation that is customized to fit those specific needs.
What is airbrush makeup?
Airbrushing makeup is a method of applying makeup through an air gun. The makeup used for airbrush can be either designed to be used with a machine or it can be a traditional foundation mixed with a mixing medium to thin the consistency enough to travel with compressed air through a gun.
