What makes Mineral Air better than other airbrushes?

Most professional makeup airbrush systems use heavy liquid makeups and are hard to control, resulting in mess and uneven application. Professional makeup artists have had plenty of practice and can achieve natural looking results, but these are more difficult for regular makeup users on their own. In contrast, the Mineral Air airbrush system is quick and simple to master. If you can push a button, you can work beautifully with Mineral Air. It’s cordless, rechargeable and such a breeze to use anyone can enjoy professional airbrush makeup results at home or on the go.

Why do professional makeup artists like airbrushing so much?

For years top Hollywood makeup artists have turned to airbrushing to provide a seamless, natural-looking coverage you just can’t get with heavy liquids, powders or creams applied with sponges, brushes or the fingertips. Today, high definition video and film have made airbrushing a necessity as they pick up every flaw and is so unforgiving. Now, both professional makeup artists and non-professional users love the Mineral Air airbrush makeup system for its easy airbrushing capacity, instant application, and flawless results.

What are the Mineral Air features that make it truly unique?

YA-MAN, the makers of the #1 mineral makeup in Japan—Only Minerals—found a way to micronize mineral makeup that resulted in a lightweight, more breathable coverage but with an extraordinary concealing capacity. This became the genesis of the Four-in-One Foundation formula. Then, the company developed the device; a revolutionary, first of its kind airbrush with Advanced Airflow Technology, One-Touch Control and a Micro Airbrush Tip, all providing better control and a more beautiful finish without mess or mistakes. The whole Mineral Air airbrush system is cordless, rechargeable, compact, and totally portable.

Can I use my Mineral Air system every day?

Yes, your Mineral Air airbrush makeup system is designed for everyday use.

Can I travel with my Mineral Air Airbrush?

Yes, your Mineral Air airbrush makeup system is small enough to fit in a purse or a makeup bag.

What type of coverage will I get from Mineral Air?

Whatever you like – from light to full – because the mineral foundation is totally buildable but never gets heavy. First, mist it on in a circular motion and allow it to set for 30 to 60 seconds. Then, repeat in the areas you desire more coverage.

Does Mineral Air’s Four-in-One Foundation work on all skin types, tones and conditions?

Its combination of mineral pigments and hydrating skin care, plus our unique formulation makes it more breathable, less irritating and outstanding for sensitive skin.

Can I use other foundation products in my Mineral Air airbrush?

No. The Four-in-One Foundation is specially formulated with micronized mineral spheres specially designed to fit through our Micro Airbrush Tip. It’s this advance in technology that gives you more control over the application and that beautiful, satiny finish. Thicker makeups and other cosmetic brands will clog your device and will void the warranty.

Furthermore, the multitasking Four-in-One Foundation replaces the need for a primer, concealer, and hydrating serum because they’re already contained in the product.

Can I use the Mineral Air Airbrush to cover up my tattoos?

It depends. Mineral Air’s coverage may be more lightweight yet is concealing enough to cover some tattoos. The size and darkness of the tattoo will determine how many layers of mineral foundation you will need. Allow a 30 to 60 second dry down between layers. If the area requires more than three layers, allow those first three one or two minutes to set before finishing.
