Tattoo airbrush makeup


For those of you who think airbrush makeup is only good for bridal events, think again! 

If you’re searching for durable, natural-looking tattoo coverage that’ll feel as light as air on your skin, tattoo airbrush makeup will be a better option for you than tattoo cover up makeup. Airbrush makeup is a liquid makeup you mist onto your skin with an airbrush system, gradually covering up your tattoo until the finish is completely opaque. 

 

Tip:

On top of hiding your tattoos, tattoo airbrush makeup can also be used to cover up skin conditions and other discolorations, bruises, scars, acne, age spots, under-eye circles, moles, vitiligo, stretchmarks, wrinkles, and birthmarks. However, keep in mind that the airbrush makeup brands we recommend are alcohol-based, and that they may irritate certain skin conditions and skin areas. Please check with your dermatologist first!

 

Our top 2 picks for tattoo airbrush makeup are 100% waterproof, in regular and chlorinated water. Both are also 100% rubproof because they’re alcohol-based products that can only be removed with special makeup remover, or 99% isopropyl alcohol. These will not come off with regular soap and water!
