Airbase Foundation Review - High Definition Airbrush Makeup

I was recently invited to an event where Airbase foundation was being demonstrated in use with the airbrush gun. When I arrived the model was not wearing any makeup and you could quite clearly see her blemishes. At the end of the demonstration the model had the most beautiful, amazingly flawless and natural looking skin. She looked stunning. I saw first hand what a great tool airbrushing is, sadly I don't have the kit at home and personally I think it is more of a professional tool.

However, I was given a bottle of the Airbase foundation and a brush to take away and try for myself.


I was matched on the night with shade 03 however there are seven shades to choose from ranging from 0-6, 0 being the palest shade. The bottle is basic and functional but that is because it is designed to be used with the airbrush tool. 

Dispensing is easy as it has a thin nozzle.

I have applied it both with my fingers and with the foundation brush, both work well but I do prefer to use the brush when applying it. The foundation contains silicone which makes it sit on the skin like a bubble, before being blended. Airbase also contains Vitamins A and E.

Blends effortlessly and seamlessly

I love this foundation and have been wearing it almost daily since I received it. It feels so light on, provides fantastic, flawless coverage and gives an almost soft focus appearance to the skin. Another bonus is that it won't budge in the summer heat, so you won't feel it sliding off half way through the day. It compares well to my absolute favourite foundation Estee Lauder Double Wear. It is long lasting so a great foundation if you are going to be at a function for a long time or hate the fact that your foundation disappears after a couple of hours. I know a few people love Double Wear but hate the 'white' look it gives in photographs, I personally don't mind that but if you do.. Airbase doesn't do that so that is yet another reason to try it. 

Airbase Foundation costs £32.95 for 30ml and is available to buy by clicking here
