How to Airbrush Makeup with Luminess Air

I love playing with makeup, but I’ve only had airbrush makeup done once for my wedding.  When I got the chance to try out this Luminess Air I was so excited!  I’ve been playing around with it for the past week or so and have to admit I’m an airbrush convert.  The Luminess gives my skin a healthy glow without looking caked on, and it stays on for 10 hours+!

This is the kit I received.  It contained a teal Luminess Air and a sample kit of medium shade foundations, moisturizer, highlighter, bronzer, and blush.  The colors matched my skin tone perfectly, and I learned how to contour using the blush, bronzer and highlighter.  It’s so fun to play with! 

The airbrush machine comes already assembled and it even has a step by step tutorial handbook to show you how to properly apply the airbrush makeup with contour instructions.  I highly recommend playing with it a couple times before using it for an event or going out.  The first time I practiced I looked like a clown- I didn’t read the instructions and just went HAM on my face.  But after a couple practice tries I have it pretty down pat.

Here are my recommendations for using the airbrush makeup Luminess Air: 

  • Practice makes perfect!  When you have a spare moment- practice applying! 
  • Less is more.  You can always add more makeup, but I’ve noticed that it looks best by applying in light layers.  The gun has a nozzle that allows you to control how much makeup comes out.  The first layer I only pull the nozzle back about 1/4 of the way, the second layer I do 1/4 to 1/2 of the way.  
  • Apply in small circles.  They tell you to do this in the tutorial and it definitely makes a difference!  Especially when contouring. 
  • Have fun with it!  I’m ordering an eye kit next as I can’t wait to see how fantastic the different contouring options are for eye shadow.
