A liquid, cream, or pressed powder that is usually applied with a sponge or brush, traditional makeup comes in the widest variety of any other makeup, with every shade available.

How it’s used: This particular makeup is the only makeup that, given the appropriate formula is chosen, can be used in any situation at any given time. It can be applied many different ways from brush methods used with thicker foundations, to sponges used for light and well-blended applications.
This makeup is typically not waterproof, will rub off on clothing and will need the occasional touch-ups throughout the evening. If applied incorrectly you can get a sloppy cake-like finish. Any makeup with SPF can make your face white in pictures. Traditional makeup is known for being the most versatile. It can be used as a simple, basic sheer tint of coverage or used to target specific needs.

Traditional makeup provides a fuller coverage as compared to airbrushing. Traditional foundation is available in a range of formulations. Some are for covering blemishes and eliminating the imperfection finish on the skin. Once professionally done, it gives a glowing finish that the airbrush cannot give.
Traditional makeup is able to withstand extreme heat and rain. To stand up to these demands requires professional prep and finishing touches. A primer, a sealer and a setting spray should be able to give a lasting look like an airbrush does.
