Airbrush Makeup On Me By Lakmé Studio, Lakmé Fashion Week

Lakmé Studio's makeup artist, Sushma, did Airbrush Makeup on me on Day 4 Lakmé Fashion Week. Above photo was after, in natural daylight. Below was backstage.

AFTER (without powder). The foundation got on my false lashes, I had to take them off afterwards :)

Before. No face makeup at all, just moisturizer. See how uneven it is? Enjoy the very unflattering photo, coz it's the 1st time & last =D

I usually need a heavy concealer to conceal my dark/sun/acne spots & to conceal the pock scar on my forehead (plus special brushes & technique), but the airbrush does partly conceal most of them. If concealer is done on top & set with powder, I think skin would look close to flawless & photo-ready.

My thoughts on Airbrush Make-up:
  • I thought it was going to feel wet on my face- you know, like any liquid foundation sprayed, but it felt like air, cool air.
  • It smelled like powder, almost like Pond's Dreamflower.
  • It was quick. If you want to save time, it is the way to go.
  • The finish was satin-like, kinda dewy. If you have oily & oily/combination (like mine), you'll need to set it with powder otherwise even a stand of your hair on your face would leave a streak.
  • The coverage is medium to heavy, no concealer needed. Although, if you have very blemished skin, you might need some concealer.


For those of you asking if it's best for bridal makeup: If you can find a makeup artist who has the airbrush tools, then yes go ahead. It looks really good in photographs. But though it's just about spraying and buffing (blending), it does require some skill to make it not look cakey.

I will be talking about Airbrush Makeup tools & products another time. So, keep an eye out for that.

Btw, I'm back home in Delhi now. Feels good to be back. Just got a few more posts from LFW to post (including 2 outfits), then will resume normal 'un-fashionweek' blogging soon! And yes, I hauled some make-up from Mumbai ;)

  10. To be honest, I think you look way much better before the airbrush makeup... It looks really thick and unnatural in the 3rd picture, but you look great in the 1st one!

    I've seen people did it in Sephora stores, it provided full coverage indeed, but looked quite cakey and fake. Maybe the technology just isn't there yet.

    1. You know, I think that too. I prefer normal foundation for everyday. But airbrush does look good when done properly.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
