Happy Monday friends! I'm at a loss at how to even begin to start this week off...with the tragic and senseless shooting that took place this past weekend I am sending all my thoughts and prayers to the families, victims & those affected. My heart is with the people of Orlando. With that being said - I did have this post slated to go today and while my weekend was nothing short of relaxing and filled with family time, I wanted to share my review of the Luminess Airbrushed Makeup System. The weekending linkup is still live below and as I mentioned on Friday, I'm going to be switching up my Monday and Friday posts to give a bit of variety!
I've had my makeup professionally done a few times for weddings and special events and only once has it been airbrushed makeup! When Lumniess Air reached out to ask if I was interested in reviewing their Airbrush Makeup set, I wondered how it would stack up to my everyday makeup! My review is going to be a bit different with one side of the face being exclusively airbrushed with Luminess Air and the other using my everyday makeup!
Can you tell which side is airbrushed?! I used the same primer which came with the set for both sides of the face followed by my foundation and theirs (they offer 4 different colors), only my concealer, their blush, highlight and bronzer & as well the same everyday makeup I use. They also offer eye shadows, but I'm not quite sure in my abilities to master that yet.
I often thought that airbrushed makeup should be left up to the professionals and watching YouTube tutorials I'll admit I was a bit intimidated, but after practicing once before taking photos for this post, I felt really comfortable with the circular application, cleaning out the machine and using the right amount of drops to create a seriously flawless finish. The system they've created allows us at home to get the same airbrushed look that a professional would give us, without the hassle!
I really did love the flawless finish and it helped reduce a few fine lines I have around my eyes. It didn't feel cakey or like I was wearing more makeup than normal, but I was more afraid to scratch an itch on my face for fear of scraping the makeup off - something that had happened when I got my makeup airbrushed before.
With my everyday makeup I noticed more of my fine lines, less of the flawless finish.
While I don't think airbrushed makeup is necessary for everyday use, I did notice that it didn't take any longer to apply than my everyday makeup & the staying power with this airbrushed makeup was the same as I get while using my Urban Decay setting spray. I am waiting for my next big night out because I will absolutely be using the Luminess Air set again.
