National Makeup Day

Celebrate with Airbrush!

With National Makeup Day around the corner, I thought this would be a great time to remind you “non-airbrushers” what you’re missing out on (if you’re still out there). 

As my loyal makeup lovers, you know that ANY LUMINESS Airbrush System is a life-changing tool. All LUMINESS Airbrush Systems are a routine must-have for SO many reasons, but here are a few.. 

1. EASY TO USE

Although airbrush systems look very different from traditional makeup tools, they are just as easy…easier actually. 

With some practice, the application will feel just as easy and natural. Were you a pro the first time you applied traditional foundation? Doubt it! 

All you have to do is follow the basic airbrush rules:

-Keep the system four fingers away from your face

-Always keep the system moving and lightly pull on the trigger

-Rinse system with water after every use

If you follow those simple rules, I promise you will absolutely LOVE your results. I’m by no means a makeup artist, I was intimidated at first but once I got the hang of it-I couldn’t picture my life without airbrushing. 

2. VERSATILITY

When you think of airbrush, you probably only think about foundation, but did you know you can complete most of your makeup routine and more with an airbrush system?

You can accomplish killer contour, perfect eyebrows, eye-catching shadow looks, and root cover all with any of LUMINESS’ Airbrush Systems.

Oh, and I can’t forget about using the airbrush systems for a sunless tan, especially during the cold months of winter. LUMINESS Airbrush Systems offer a feature for everyone, even if you’re not a makeup person, you can give your body a glow, fill in your roots or bald spots-the list is endless. 

A LUMINESS Airbrush System is all your makeup brushes in one device!

3. CUSTOMIZABLE

With traditional foundation I always struggled to find the perfect shade, I was always in-between shades, and manually mixing them never quite worked! 

However, with LUMINESS’ wide variety of shades, you can mix foundations within the actual system. This feature makes it so easy to match your color perfectly, all year round. 

No need to stress about finding your shade, you can virtually try-on airbrush foundations on the LUMINESS website AND you can also use the foundation finder to see what the experts recommend. 

These color matching features take out all the guesswork and make it sooooo easy to find the best shade for your complexion. 

4. THE RESULTS

Last, but not least..the famously flawless airbrush results. 

It’s safe to call LUMINESS’ airbrush foundation a triple threat; the finish is natural, long-lasting, and provides amazing coverage. 

If you are a makeup enthusiast like myself, you understand how rare it is for a product to have all of those qualities.

Airbrush foundation is weightless but still covers my wrinkles, blemishes, and discoloration, my skin looks flawless and that’s just the foundation.

 With the other airbrush products, like Brow & Root, or Airbrush Cosmetics, I never have to feel insecure about my hairline, my body always has a little extra glow, and I can make my eyebrows balanced in shape, size, and fullness. 

Awarded Best Airbrush Makeup for sensitive skin by Woman’s World. 

I could go on for days, but there’s four solid reasons why you NEED an Airbrush System. So, I think this is your sign to join the airbrush world IMMEDIATELY. A LUMINESS Airbrush System is the perfect gift to yourself for National Makeup Day, get yourself the results you deserve, NOW!

International Self-Care Day

Friendly Reminder: Self-care IS important

With International Self-Care Day coming up, I thought I’d take the liberty to remind each and every one of you how important self-care is. 

I know with our busy lives, it can be hard to incorporate daily self-care, but LUMINESS makes it easy to give ourselves the attention we deserve. 

Here’s how I pamper myself on a daily basis quickly and efficiently….

Airbrush 

When we think of self-care, we normally think of spa-like treatments and skincare, but it’s so much more. According to the Oxford dictionary, the definition of self-care: the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.

So, wouldn’t you say feeling your best is a part of self-care? I don’t know about you guys, but I feel my best when my makeup and skin is on point! Therefore, airbrush is DEFINITELY part of my self-care routine. 

My LUMINESS Airbrush System helps me achieve flawless results, from my skin to my eyebrows, from head to toe! That’s the beauty of airbrush systems, you can achieve almost your whole makeup routine with one tool, apply self-tanner and fill in your roots!

The best way to practice self-care is adding a stress-free device to your routine and that’s a LUMINESS Airbrush System for me. 

Silk & Smooth Hair Remover

Speaking of stress-free devices, say hello to the Silk & Smooth Hair Remover. Achieving soft, hairless skin gently and easily. Sounds like self-care to me. 

To create a smooth canvas for your makeup, tanning formula, etc….you must eliminate all skin impurities, like hair and dead skin. 

First, remove unwanted body and facial hair with the Silk and Smooth hair remover. This hair remover gently removes hair without causing redness or irritation, no shaving cream or water required (which is amazing). In a Byrdie article, written by Rebecca Norris, Dermatologist, Dr. Jennifer L MacGregor recommends electric shaving devices (Silk and Smooth), if you despise traditional shaving. 

Bamboo Polish 

Of course, I need to mention skincare when preaching about self-care. I don’t know who needs to hear this, but you MUST exfoliate at least once a week. 

My favorite exfoliator for a gentle but thorough cleansing is the Bamboo Polish Exfoliant. 

This exfoliant will make your skin brighter-looking and remove dead skin cells. Exfoliating your skin is key to a silky-smooth finish because it prevents pockets of sunless tanner from collecting on those dry, dull skin areas! 

PRO TIP: Speaking of sloughing away the skin, don’t forget to give your lippies some love with our Pomegranate Lip Scrub. 

Now that you guys know what self-care means to me, I want to hear from you guys! What does self-care mean to you? How do you achieve your every day goals and tend to your “self-care needs”?

New Month, New Airbrush

How to keep your system good as new! 

Hey, my fellow airbrush lovers, I’m happy to see you here. 

Now that you’ve been using your brand new Airbrush System (and loving it I’m sure), and you feel confident applying your makeup, I’m sure you want to protect your new investment and continue to achieve optimal results. However, you may be a little intimidated on how to keep it in TIP TOP shape. 

Well, don’t worry, here are a few tips on keeping your airbrush system good as new:

When it comes to keeping your Airbrush in its PRIME, you must keep the foundation well clean. After every use, be sure to run water through it after every use and it’s very simple! 

*These steps apply to all LUMINESS Airbrush Systems* 

  1. Pour water into foundation well
  2. Turn system on and pull back on the trigger (all the way)
  3. Point system/stylus into the sink or paper towel until makeup stops coming through

I TOLD YOU IT WAS EASY! Running water through your system after every use will prevent build up and clogging, you don’t want your makeup getting hard on the instead of your stylus or system. 

If there’s makeup stuck in the little cracks of your system, feel free to use a q-tip to clean and eliminate residue in the foundation well. 

For a more thorough cleaning after every couple of uses, clean your machine with Tip Top Cleaning Solution following the same rules above. Tip Top solution is designed to break up all LUMINESS airbrush cosmetics and foundations from the depths of your system by preventing extreme residue.

Using Tip Top solution doubles the life of your stylus and Breeze Airbrush system. 

And folks, it’s just that simple!

All Hail Lash Lure

Easy application, professional results.   

Hi, I’m Liv and I have been personally victimized by fake eyelashes. As you all know I live and breathe makeup, but unfortunately, I’m awful at applying fake eyelashes.

I’ve always loved the way false eyelashes looked but always avoided them because I couldn’t apply them myself. Then, I discovered Lash Lure. 

LUMINESS’ Lash Lure are beautiful false lashes that are SO easy to apply. I’m sure you’re asking, what makes them easier than other fake eyelashes? Well first off, there’s no glue involved….these lashes are magnetic! 

The lashes cling to the 2-in-1 Magnetic Smart Adhesive eyeliner, so all you need to do is line, define and effortlessly apply any of the three styles of silk magnetic lashes.

Skip the mess of the sticky glue and enjoy the worry-free hold. Lash lure is the upgrade we all need in our makeup routines, especially with wedding season coming up!

Lash Lure comes in three different styles: Natural, Diva, and Glam- so there’s a perfect lash for every personality and all occasions.

Natural lashes fill in the volume and length of your natural lashes with just enough boost to feel your best self! The natural lashes are perfect for a daytime event or if you like the subtle look. They truly are natural-looking, with the perfect touch of extra length. 

For more of a dramatic look, I like to use the Diva lashes. Diva lashes start out shorter towards the inside of the eye and extend length towards the outer corner for a flirty feel with a splash of drama!

Lastly, for ultimate length and volume, Glam lashes are the move! Glam lashes are full volume and length from end to end bringing you the fullest lashes with the most impact.

It’s time to gear up for wedding season with these easy-to-apply lashes. Say goodbye to stubborn traditional lashes. Remember guys, I’m NOT a makeup professional, just a makeup enthusiast so if I can apply these gorgeous lashes, you can too! With Lash Lure, you will feel confident in your application and show-stopping results. 

Which lash style are you dying to try? “All of them” is an acceptable answer and don’t worry the Lash Lure Complete Kit comes with all three styles!
