In 1981, celebrity makeup artist Dina Ousley began using airbrush makeup with her clients on film, television and commercial sets in Hollywood. Three decades later, her entertainment industry clients continue to use Ousley’s Dinair airbrush makeup and applicator system. Dinair’s slogan is “the secret weapon of the stars is no longer a secret” because Dinair can be used both by makeup pros and home users to cover large pores and achieve the kind of flawless, airbrushed finish once only available in upscale salons.
How It Works
Airbrushing on foundation can help reduce the look of large pores while covering blemishes and other skin irregularities. “The fact that it does not clog pores, but sits on the skin surface, blending with your skin’s natural pigments makes it look natural and gives the appearance that you were born with beautiful, flawless looking skin,” explains Ousley. The added benefit is that with continued use, pores will reduce because they are no longer inflamed and irritated by makeup, oils and bacteria being rubbed into the skin.
Influence of Ingredients
Ousley says many brands of makeup contain oils, silicone, parabens and powered minerals, which in some cases will actually make pores larger. These makeup ingredients penetrate the skin, thus clogging pores. Airbrush makeup, especially water-based formulations such as Dinair Airbrush Makeup, spray onto the skin as a fine mist that sets on contact. The result is a makeup that does not clog or go into the pores, allowing the skin to breathe.
According to Ousley, another reason opting for airbrush makeup application helps cover and reduce large pores is because it is the most sanitary, bacteria free method of applying makeup. The use of dirty sponges, powder pads and brushes not only contaminates your makeup products, it can spread bacteria all over your skin, potentially causing irritation and breakouts. Clean application is a huge factor in maintaining healthy looking skin, she says. Once an individual starts using Dinair Airbrush Makeup, Ousely says their skin may actually improve, “I’ve had clients with acne or large pores who have noticed a big difference in their complexions after using Dinair,” she says.
Starting with a well-prepped face will make for an even better airbrush makeup application. The Dinair line offers an instant line filler for those who naturally have larger pores. Smooth Skin will visibly minimize lines and large pores upon application. The Perfect Skin Line-Diffusing Emulsion is a wrinkle-fighting product that also diminishes the appearance of large pores when used under the airbrush makeup.
