If you’ve ever looked at a movie star’s makeup and thought, ‘Why can’t mine look like that?’ the answer is probably a simple one — you’re not using airbrush makeup. A technique that sprays makeup onto the skin in a mist form via a powered compressor that allows it to be distributed in an even, lightweight manner, airbrush makeup — which was first used way back in 1959 for Ben Hur — is a well-known Hollywood secret for sheer, natural-looking coverage that won’t settle into fine lines and pores like traditional makeup does. The best airbrush makeup kits, which often include the makeup as well as the machine, take things even further still, with anti-aging, dermatologist-tested products that look great on mature skin.
Best airbrush makeup kit for sensitive skin : Luminess Air Basic Airbrush System
Why we like it:
- Comes with 4 foundations
- Includes blush, skin brightening glow, and moisturizer/primer
If you’ve seen one of Luminess’ infomercials on TV, you already know that this low-pressure machine minimizes fine lines, wrinkles, and textured skin to hide acne, skin discoloration, dark circles, bruising, scars, rosacea, and the occasional tattoo. What you may not know is that this machine, which comes with four foundations, a blush, a skin brightener, a moisturizer, and an AC adaptor, has been dermatologist tested — and approved — for use on even the most sensitive of skin types.
Happy customer: “I have skin level: challenging. Whatever difficulty you can think of, I’ve got it: discoloration, sensitivity, dry/flaky patches, oily patches, enlarged pores, fine lines … and on top of that, I prefer a natural makeup look. Now that I’ve tried Luminess Air, I’m a convert. The Luminess foundation formula is water-based, so it doesn’t irritate sensitive skin, and it is long lasting – it sticks around all day without fading, flaking or caking for me. It also floats over pores and fine lines, giving you a flawless finish.”
