Luminess Air is a unique makeup kit that comes with its own airbrush. Many women today opt for airbrushed makeup when they have big events like a wedding, but now you can learn to apply these same professional-quality looks to yourself, from the comfort of home. Well, at least you’re supposed to. Let’s see if it really works.
Air brushed makeup is nothing new, but the idea of bringing it home for the average user is. Top models and celebrities have known about this method of applying makeup for years. This is just the way it’s done in those kind of industries. But for the ordinary woman having makeup applied in this way used to be cost prohibitive. That’s why it was always saved for special occasions in the past.
Luminess Air claims to be the way to get professional results like supermodels and fashion models by using the same kind of systems that they use backstage, and in dressing rooms. They’re airbrushing system is said to produce a constant stream of makeup so that it goes over your skin evenly, giving you a flawless look.
They also claim that you can use their airburst system to apply a tanner to your body so that you can get a tanned look without lying out in the sun or using a tanning booth. This would be great for those who burn easily, they can finally get the darker look without taking dangerous measures.
Luminess Air also claims to have won an award for their system. It turns out they have, from the Independent Cosmetics Manufacturers and Distributors Association, for two years running.
Referring to yourself as a “magic wand” is bordering on hype. Also, making comparisons to the professional makeup artists that work on supermodels is also a far stretch. While it may be true that top makeup artists use airbrushes to get their clients looking photo shoot ready, that does not mean they use or endorse the Luminess Air brand.
Get ready to get your wallet out if you want to try the Luminess Air System. Even if you go the least expensive route with their one speed model – which we don’t recommend – you’re looking to spend around $230.
The one we recommend is the Pro model, which has three different speeds and costs $310. This may sound pricey, but for the results that it delivers, the different uses it has, and the different products it replaces, we believe this is a sound investment for the beauty-conscious.
Depending on what type of makeup routine you currently have, the Luminess Air will either take longer, or save you time. If you are the kind that spends nearly hours in front of the mirror trying to look just right, you might save time by getting a great look quickly. However, if you’re more of a “just the basics” kind of woman, you might find that the Luminess Air system is sort of overkill.
Luminess Air is no fly-by-night company trying to pass off a low-quality product and laugh their way to the bank. They built themselves a good business on a solid product, with some flashy packaging and style to boot. By bringing airbrushing to the mainstream, it cornered the market and is producing a needed product to a hungry audience.
The reviews have come in from users out there and the majority of feedback has been positive. Of course when there’s so much skill involved, you’re bound to get some people that say it doesn’t work. This is because you have to learn how to use it properly in order to get all of the benefits. Many women just don’t have the patience to learn a new skill set, and would rather just say it doesn’t work than admit that they didn’t give it enough time.
Since so many people have given it a thumbs up it must be doing something right, and it’s not the product that isn’t working but rather a matter of user error. As long as you keep this in mind when you order it, and commit to learning how to use it the right way with their instructional videos and instruction manuals, you’ll be just fine.
A Note on Safety
The makers of Luminess Air are recommending that you use their makeup products on your entire body to cover up flaws on your legs and arms as well as your face. Over the long term this is not recommended, as your skin is a living organ and needs to breathe. By covering it up with a coat of makeup every day over a long period of time, you might run into complications with your health.
Final Luminess Air Review
Luminess Air is a high-quality product that you can rely on to provide consistent results. There is a bit of a learning curve, as this will be a new skill for most. But with a little trial and error, most users have found that they look great afterward and have added this to their beauty supply kit.
While pricey, it is our recommendation to go with the 3-speed Professional model. This gets you one of their more advanced airbrush kits, along with all of the makeup needed to get you started. From there you can pick and choose from their line of foundations, blushes, eye-shadows, and even body makeup for that overall perfect look.
