I LOVE the airbrushed look. There just isn’t anyone in the Monterey area that does airbrush makeup and I never learned. So when Luminess Air contacted me about learning more about their product I was so excited. I will admit, I was super nervous that it would be hard. But, after a few trials and watching a few of their videos I feel like a pro! I can even contour + highlight with it. All the looks you see on the blog for the next week is featuring Luminess Air (brushed) makeup!
Here are few of my tips for easy use:
- It is okay to create your own foundation. I use 6 drops of shade 2 and 3 drops of shade 3.
- Practice makes perfect!
- Don’t try to hold the wand in one place to “spot treat” it doesn’t work that way and you get a giant blob of foundation in one spot! Just keep moving the wand in small circles and the coverage turns out even and perfect.
- ALWAYS clean the wand after use. It only takes a few seconds but if you leave it and come back at night it takes a lot longer. <— lesson learned there.
I don’t wear makeup every single day. My motto is that with good skincare you need less makeup. Plus, I like to use makeup as a way to express myself and getting all dolled up is really fun for me. I was worried that I wouldn’t get a lot of use out of the Luminess Air system… but then I remembered a few years back the “Oxygen Facials” that were all the rave. I tried them out and loved them but wasn’t really willing to pay the hefty price tag every month to get one. While I was applying my airbrush makeup the other day I realized I can now get that same “Oxygen Facial” at home!!! The machine works perfectly for it. Check back Saturday for my how-to (and maybe a video) to see exactly what I am talking about. Plus, check out my Instagram this week to see makeup looks I created with the Luminess Air.
