Perfectly natural skin with Airbase !

Hello lovely ladies, today's post is featuring Airbase Makeup which i was firstly introduced to when reading Girlinthecityglasgow blog where she was raving about it. Since then i have been waiting to try it as i was slightly intrigued.
The foundation itself comes in 7 different shades and is loved by many celebrity makeup artists who seem to favour the airbrush technique. Saying that it is a very versatile product and can also be applied with fingers, brush or a sponge.


£32.95 for 30ml


Shade 3 was a perfect match


The texture is so light

Perfect for a natural look

I love the fact that my skin actually looks like skin and not makeup. I can see myself wearing this a lot during the summer as its practicaly sun proof and sweat proof which is amazing for such a natural looking light textured foundation.

I can see why  its such a hit with the makeup artists. The cover is sheer but buildable and it photographs really well too. It reminds me slightly of Mac face and body but the finish is semi matte. I applied this with a brush and didn't set with a powder. The foundation lasted all day without needing to be touched up.
This foundation is great for those who love a natural looking finish and it feels amazing as its so light you don't know its there.

Airbase even retail the small airbrush and compressor so you can apply like a pro. This technique creates a flawless professional finish which doesn't come cheap at £199.95 but a worthy investment if you are serious about your makeup.

The light as air texture is created by the silicone base which not only allows the skin to breath but also means that pores don't get clogged.

Check out the airbase website for more info.
Have you tried airbase before and what kind of finish do you like from your foundation?

  3. Looks lovely on you, very fresh, very clean, your skin with a bit of a secret behind it!

    I use this both on my own face, and professionally. I haven't yet found a skintype that doesn't like it (the odd one or two clients who like a heavier coverage, they're not so keen!), but its a very versatile product!

    I don't use it with a compressor, too much cost/faff/extra weight, and like you, use a brush. My choice is a flat topped brush and really buff it into the skin, so it works with the skin rather than over the top.

    oh and I love that a double layer negates the need for concealer, even under eyes! Bargain bonus!

    looks gorgeous on you, you've got a good colour there!

  8. Great finish and I'm glad you like it. Shame you didn't use the airbrush gun. Even more lightweight with the gun if you can believe it!x

    Stina it is quite similar to mac face & body but it gives a slightly more natural finish imo, its not as shiny either and im finding it lasts better as well xx
