How to use: Matte

In today’s tutorial we are going to learn how to use the Matte feature in the AirBrush app. This tool is ideal to even and smoothen the skin. 

Skin textures are different for every person; some have oily skin, some have dry skin, and others have a mix of both. The matte effect will remove the oiliest or most illuminated parts of your skin. In this feature, you can adjust the brush size, the intensity, and remove the effect with the eraser tool.

Brush size 

As soon as you’ve uploaded your picture into the AirBrush app and opened the matte feature, the first step in your edit is to adjust the brush size. You can adjust the brush size from 0 to 100 by dragging the dot to the right or left.

Once you’ve finished selecting the brush size, select the matte option. Then, Zoom in as much as needed and run your finger on the picture. The effect will apply automatically. Once you’ve done it, you can change its intensity from 0 to 10. To do this, drag the dot on the right-hand side of your screen.
