1. Sometimes parts in the airbrush stylus can get loose and just needs a simple adjustment.
Just follow the troubleshooting directions in the photo below:
2. Airbrush stylus is dirty.
This happens when makeup buildup and dries inside the airbrush stylus clogging it and not allowing air or makeup to flow through.
Keeping the airbrush stylus clean allows it to work smoothly, no need for any harsh cleaners or taking the airbrush completely apart.
For everyday cleaning, all that is needed is running warm water through the airbrush and incorporating some "back bubbling" with warm water. Back bubbling is when you use a finger to cover the tip of the airbrush stylus while slowly pulling back the lever until you see some bubbling. Then running more warm water through the airbrush until the water comes out clear.
Sometimes a deeper cleaning may be necessary and we have a how-to video for that.
3. Does the lever feel springy? Or does it feel loose or floppy?
If the lever feels loose or floppy, check out the troubleshooting detailed in this article.
