Luminess Airbrush System Review & Eye Kit Giveaway {Holiday Gift Guide} - 12/3

Luminess Air is an airbrush makeup system that is used by professionals and makeup artists across the nation, and is now available to any woman for their everyday use! The Luminess Air system gives you that airbrushed, flawless look you want that you can't get from regular foundations and concealers. I received the Basic System with the 1-speed compact airbrush, 4 shades of medium foundation, bronzer, blush, and glow, plus moisturizer/primer and two shades of eyeshadow for the airbrush! 

The kit also came with a nice silver croc style case to keep the airbrush system and all of the little bottles in, which makes it easy to keep on my bathroom counter since it's all organized and contained in the silver case so it looks nice. I had actually won this kit from another blog giveaway and then was asked to do a review on it, which I was completely happy to do! 

When I first got the package, I was really excited but also kind of intimidated because I had no idea how easy or hard airbrushing would be. Turns out it is pretty easy and very fast, but I definitely recommend watching the included DVD and reading the instructions before trying it. There are lots of tips and tricks to using the airbrush system, but once you get the hang of it (basically after you try it once you will get the hang of it!) it is really easy and only takes a few minutes. I actually found it to take less time than putting on regular foundations/concealers. 

Not only that, but it is also so much better for my skin because A) I am not touching my face to apply it therefore keeping extra oils off my face, B) I use only a few tiny drops of foundation to get a nice coverage with the airbrush kit so I'm not loading my face with unnecessary gunk and C) I am not using a foundation brush or sponge that can get built up with bacteria and be harmful to my skin. I really feel like this kit is a genius idea - it makes my skin look amazing and flawless and allows me to put on makeup without touching my face.

I love airbrushing because it evens out my skin and covers dark areas, but it is also great for anyone with breakouts to cover because the last thing you want to do with blemishes is touch and irritate them. With Luminess Air you can control the coverage and apply it in layers to get the look you want. It also blends flawlessly to eliminate those makeup lines that you get with traditional makeups. Plus you can mix the foundation shades to get the perfect shade for your skin tone and if you are more pale in winter you can use one of the lighter shades in the kit. That has been my biggest beef with foundations is that with my olive and tan skin, it is really hard to find the right color of foundation for me, so for the past year I have been avoiding wearing it all together. With the Luminess Air kit, it's easy to find my perfect shade! Plus it makes me look amazing and feel like a movie star :)

I also really liked the blush and glow that came in my kit to add a little more to my look. I tried the airbrush eyeshadows but still need more practice with those since it is harder to apply to such a small eye area. All in all, I am in love the Luminess Air and don't know if I can ever go back to regular foundation because with Luminess Air I can control the shade of the foundation and match it perfectly to my skin tone. 

The only downfall is that it is expensive and I never would have been able to buy this kit if I hadn't won it from a giveaway. The Basic System I received costs around $229 dollars, although they have a Holiday special going on right now so the kit is only $199 and it includes the eyekit too! Although these airbrush kits have a high price tag, the foundations last a long time since you only use a few drops at a time, and the airbrush itself has a warranty so it's not something you'd have to replace every few months like regular foundation - it will last for years. Also, since Christmas is right around the corner, this is a great item to put on your gift list!

I really want to try this, the fact that you actually used the product and can attest to the fact that the application is pretty easy, plus in your photo I like the way your skin has a sunkissed looked to it...not overdone and fakebaked look to it at all..it looks like a nice glow. I also agree about the makeup sponges and bacteria..I know that I am bad and should throw them away more frequently but I am too cheap :) so this would be a wonderful alternative to the makeup sponges as well.
