How to Tone Your Face

Spoiler alert, no sweat required

PSA: Attention to everyone and anyone, did you know you can tone your face without exercising? Yes, my friends you heard me correctly! I know you’re familiar with LUMINESS’ Airbrush Systems, AKA the life-changing tools I’m always talking about. BUT I have another must-have beauty tool that will snap your face into shape better than any fad diet.

Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to introduce you to the Conture Kinetic Toning System. This toning system is an anti-aging beauty device that tones skin to restore radiance and firmness to the three main areas: décolleté, eye area, forehead.

The best part is it’s non-invasive AND painless, which is important because we don’t have time to rest and not look glamorous! So, it’s basically a personal trainer for your face. 

If used once or twice daily, you will see SHOCKING results. I’m sure you’re thinking oh great I have to add ANOTHER step to my beauty routine but stop right there because you know I always keep your time in mind with my beauty advice.

Listen, guys, I use this machine while I’m watching tv or on the phone-I even used it in the car the other day (I wasn’t the driver, don’t worry). But to my point, it’s so easy to use and it takes 10 minutes tops! 

Also, it’s amazing that the device comes with the Kinetic Treatment Serum, superstar backbone of the Conture Toning Device. This Kinetic Treatment Serum is formulated with the revolutionary peptide SNAP-8, which has been clinically shown to reduce crow’s feet. Now that you know a little bit about the device, here’s how to use it!

1) After priming cleansed skin with Kinetic Treatment Serum, turn on Skin Toning Device and place on skin, ensuring connection is secure.

2)After device pulses 3-5 times, gently slide to treat next section, slightly overlapping with previous section.

3)Moving in an upward motion towards the top of the face, repeat until entire section has been treated.

4)Treat one area at a time, working device over cheeks, jawline, forehead, neck, etc. independent of each other.

After you’ve completed the treatment be sure to moisturize your skin. In the morning I use the AM Ignition Lotion to kickstart my day with ultimate hydration.

At night, I use PM Recovery Creme-this intensive moisturizer helps my skin recover while I sleep. Create a smooth and hydrated canvas for your makeup by keeping up with your skincare routine and adding in your new best friend, the Contoure Kinetic Toning Device!

See I told you it was SO simple and can be done anywhere! Relax while you do the treatment, binge-watch your favorite show, and tone your face at the same time. I wish toning the rest of my body was this easy!

This device will improve your overall makeup results because it creates a smooth wrinkle-free surface, which will allow your makeup to apply easily and beautifully.

No need to worry about your makeup settling into fine lines or the dry cakey look, if you keep up with your skincare routine, you can kiss these common issues goodbye! 

So, my makeup lovers, are you excited to exercise your faces with minimal effort? It’s time to restore radiance and firmness to tired and aging skin, the non-painful way! If you want younger-looking skin and more radiant skin, it’s time to start toning!  

Summer 2021 Makeup Trends

Hello hello, makeup squad! I’m in awe of this summer’s makeup trends and I can’t wait to share them with you guys. As you all know, I like to look at makeup trends as fun suggestions.

Of course, I stick to the routine that I feel confident in, BUT I’m not scared to test out a new technique or product because that’s how we grow as beauty lovers, right? Makeup is supposed to be fun, remember??? 

Let’s dive into this summer’s popular makeup trends….


You’re always a go-getter, but this season’s calling for some extra glow. This season is celebrating healthy and radiant skin! Good thing my makeup squad has been keeping up with their skincare routine, but if you’re new here, let me explain how important a solid skincare routine is for your makeup results! 

In order to have smooth and flawless makeup results, you MUST have a clean canvas. By clean canvas, I mean a hydrated and fresh face! To achieve a smooth canvas, please EXFOLIATE, this will remove all dead skin and impurities from your face.

I recommend the Bamboo Facial Exfoliant for thorough exfoliation, removing all impurities from the skin! Another important step in your skincare routine is hydration.

Hydrated skin will make it easier to cover fine lines and wrinkles by creating a smoother complexion. To moisturize, I use Kinetic AM lotion in the morning (hence, AM)  and Kinetic PM Lotion at night (duh).

Kinetic AM Ignition lotion is a lightweight, yet intensive moisturizer that hydrates skin while helping it retain essential moisture. Kinetic PM Recovery lotion is an intensive night cream that helps the skin recover while you sleep.

They both should be used daily to minimize wrinkles and achieve ultimate hydration! This skincare routine will definitely provide the glow-getter look EASILY. 

If you’re looking to enhance your natural glow, I’d suggest using Airbrush Love Illuminator. You can use it with or without makeup to add a subtle dewy shine to your face!

Just add a few drops into your airbrush system and spray where you want to shine. And don’t worry, there’s no shimmer, when I say subtle, I mean it!


This season’s eyeshadow is the furthest thing from shy! If you’re dying to have some fun with colorful shadows, then honey this is YOUR season. I’ve seen bright eyeshadow trends before, but NEVER like this.

This season we’re using the entire color wheel with tie-dye eyeshadows. I know tie-dye sweatsuits are in, but apparently, people are wearing it on their eyelids as well. Our Airbrush Eyeshadows are perfect for this look because the shadows are so pigmented and the airbrush stylus makes it so easy to apply. 

Along with tie-dye eyeshadow, another popular eyeshadow trend this season is pastels. I feel like pastels aren’t used enough for makeup looks and they should be! I can’t wait to show off a fun pastel look using Click N Play Eyeshadows

Whether you’re participating in these trends or not, LUMINESS provides so many different eyeshadows from airbrush to traditional, with an amazing variety of colors. With LUMINESS you will never be bored of your eyeshadow selection


Lipsticks are a girl’s best friend and in this case, a VIBRANT best friend. This summer is puckering up for bright and playful lip colors. Softs and neutrals we love you, but we won’t be packing you in our suitcase for this summer’s vacation!

Get ready to incorporate bright pinks, corals and bold reds into your makeup looks this season, specifically matte or high-pigmented lipsticks. 

Summer proof your makeup bag with my favorite bright and bold lippies: 

The PERFECT Bright Pinks:

Chromatic Lip Stain-Magenta Rock

Forever Reign- Alist

The BOLDEST Reds: 

Creme Confession-Red Cape

Obsession Liquid Lipstick- Big Poppy

The MUST-HAVE Corals:

Captive Lip Liner- Tangerine

Vinyl Slick Lipstick-Merengue


Oh, I am all about that blush, so I guess it’s my lucky season! Everyone can appreciate a classic blush look, to add shape and color to our faces, but what if I told you rosy, red cheeks are back to play?

Remember when you were embarrassed about blushing or ashamed of your sunburn? Well, forget about that this summer! The sun-kissed rosy cheek makeup look is in and I have to say, it’s soooooo cute.

This look is so easy to achieve with our Airbrush Blush because LUMINESS offers a variety of blush shades, so don’t worry-the perfect shade of sunburn is waiting for you.

All you have to do is pour 2 drops of airbrush blush into your system and apply to the apple of your cheek and then do a light pass over your nose, for that naturally sun-kissed look! 

Well, friends, those are the bold and daring summer 2021 makeup trends! How’s everyone feeling about these trends? Comment which trends you can’t WAIT to try!

Behind The Airbrush

As a makeup lover of LUMINESS, I think it’s important to share with you guys why I love LUMINESS, and it’s not just because they have amazing products. As members of the beauty community, we should all be aware of a brand’s story, mission, and reputation. 

As a beauty brand, LUMINESS understands that they have a responsibility to promote the importance of confidence in one’s self and makeup results. They support this responsibility by providing a wide variety of beauty products, from airbrush to skincare.

LUMINESS also offers several resources to help their customers when it comes to makeup applications or beauty-related inquiries. The LUMINESS family strives to make everyone feel like a beautiful airbrush pro!

To me, LUMINESS is like an older sister that I look up to. I say that because I can always count on them to launch innovative products, and they are always willing to help, just as a role model would, but I’ll get more into that later!

Anyways, here’s a little bit of background on my brand crush, LUMINESS!


Around 25 years ago, innovator, artist, and entrepreneur Sean Mehta had a fashion and garment business as one of the largest importers of beaded gowns in the US. During photoshoots for each fashion collection, he noticed the makeup artists were always using airbrush systems on the models. 

He would ask each makeup artist, why are you using an airbrush system? The response was always the same – It’s the best and best way to give you the flawless long-lasting look. So, he thought to himself – if airbrushing is the best way to give women great natural-looking coverage – WHY doesn’t every woman have one? 

And then, the LUMINESS Airbrush System was born, making millions more confident in their makeup results. LUMINESS turned heads by bringing professional makeup results to people’s homes, ensuring that EVERYONE can airbrush. 


What I truly admire about LUMINESS is the support that they offer. This support is shown in so many different ways, it’s hard to touch on all of it, but what other beauty brand do you know that offers free sessions to answer any beauty questions?? If you are interested in booking a session, here’s the link:

Couldn’t find a session that works for your schedule? Did you know LUMINESS makeup artists also go live on FB and YouTube Monday-Friday at 9:30 CT to go over airbrush basics, AND answer any questions you may have-how amazing is that? 

Oh, and it doesn’t stop there, you can connect with a LUMINESS makeup artist to find the perfect foundation shade for you! LUMINESS is truly here for all of you, if you have any questions about your order, customer service is happy to help you as well!

I love their willingness to help and ensure every customer feels beautiful. This is huge in the beauty world and I know all my fellow makeup lovers appreciate a brand that truly cares. 


Of course, I’m forever grateful that LUMINESS introduced me to airbrushing and their airbrush systems are absolutely life-changing, but it doesn’t stop there. LUMINESS understands the importance of versatility.

Yes, the airbrush systems make it easy to apply most of your makeup, by using one tool to apply several different products. But LUMINESS also creates multi-purpose products that can shorten your routine EVEN more.

For example, the Rose 4-In-1 Foundation makes my makeup routine SO much easier, I use that foundation as my primer, concealer, foundation, and anti-aging serum. So, thank you LUMINESS for making my busy mornings less stressful. 


I always appreciate when a beauty company or any company uses their platform to support non-profit organizations. I was so excited to see that LUMINESS is teaming up with ASPCA to join the fight against animal cruelty!

LUMINESS will donate $1 for every airbrush system sold until June 2021, with a maximum donation of $50,000. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals provides animals medical care and behavioral rehabilitation. This non-profit organization also helps thousands of animals find loving homes every year.

Are you ready to join the fight? Buy an airbrush system when it counts! See LUMINESS’ full Airbrush collection here:

If you didn’t understand why I’m obsessed with LUMINESS as a beauty brand, I’m certain you do now! LUMINESS is a brand that provides amazing products and genuinely cares about its community-as a makeup lover that’s all I ask for!

So LUMINESS, thank you for blessing me and my makeup squad with your AMAZING airbrush systems. More importantly, thank you for being such a positive influence on the beauty world. 

Airbrush Hacks

For my loyal readers, you know how much I love airbrush and I know you do as well. To fill in the newbies, an airbrush system is a magical makeup tool that makes it so easy to achieve flawless makeup results. 

All LUMINESS airbrush systems are versatile tools, you can use an airbrush system to complete most of your makeup look and shorten your routine- no brushes required!

For those of you who are just starting to play with your new toy (airbrush system), I’m sure you have a few questions! Here are a few helpful tips that can elevate your airbrush results. 


If you haven’t found one singular foundation shade that works for your skin tone, don’t worry with an airbrush system you can personalize your foundation shade!

One of the best airbrush features is the ability to mix shades…at home! Remember, I’m by no means a makeup artist so the fact that it’s easy for anyone to create a personalized foundation shade is amazing!

I’ve always been in-between shades and with traditional makeup, it never looked right or blend well when I would mix shades manually. Here’s how to effortlessly create the perfect foundation shade for your complexion. 

  1. Apply 3-4 drops of each shade into the foundation well 
  2. Firmly hold finger over the tip 
  3. Pull back on trigger to mix colors 
  4. Start applying your PERSONALIZED foundation

See, I told you airbrush elevates your makeup game, you can create the perfect shade right from your very own makeup chair! Isn’t this everything we’ve ever wanted?

Say goodbye to buying a new foundation every season! Take a peek at the amazing selection of airbrush foundations:


Has anyone else struggled with finding the perfect dewy finish? To me, I always felt like I either looked greasy or the dewiness was invisible, but with Airbrush Love Illuminator, I found the perfect in-between.

This hydrating formula contains a tinted sheer base which, when airbrushed on the skin, creates luminosity and natural dewiness to the skin. Here are a few ways I have fun with Love Illuminator.

For all dewy finish: 

-Add a drop or two of LOVE illuminator in with your foundation for a subtle glow.


Highlight (don’t worry, there’s no shimmer, just glow): 

-Apply lightly to your cheekbones, brow bone, nose, and cupid’s bow

As makeup lovers, I’m sure you are so happy to finally have found the PERFECT dewy finish (I know I am). 


Are you loving your Airbrush Blush, but want to achieve a softer blush look? I’m here to save the day once again! I personally love blush, but I love the natural blush look.

Since LUMINESS’ blush is amazing and extremely high-pigmented, I have a quick tip that will give you a way softer look. 

  1. Apply airbrush blush on cheekbones
  2. Apply airbrush foundation over it! 

A simple fix is an understatement! I’m sure you use to the application of traditional makeup which requires blush after foundation, but if you’re looking for a softer look- apply blush first! 


Do you have a little too much shine and want a little bit more of a matte finish? Well then, you are going to LOVE this last tip. Here’s how I reduce my natural shininess.

  1. Before applying airbrush foundation, apply setting powder to oily areas like your brow bone, nose, and chin.
  2. Apply airbrush foundation
  3. Enjoy your oil-free flawless matte finish

Applying powder before airbrush foundation is a great way to absorb excess oil, this will ultimately lead to more of a matte finish. For peeps, with oily skin, I’m sure you’re stocking up on setting powder as we speak!

I’ve always struggled with oily skin, so this is for sure a go-to hack of mine. I recommend the Sheer Compact Finishing Powder, it is life-changing!

I hope all of my fellow airbrush lovers are excited to try some of my helpful tips and the newbies are looking forward to joining the airbrush world. Newbies, here’s the link to all of LUMINESS’ Airbrush Systems:

As always, I want to hear from all of you! If you have any questions about my airbrush hacks, please comment below or if you need help getting started with airbrushing, schedule a session with a LUMINESS airbrush expert:

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

As my loyal makeup lovers, you know I’m always here to give you makeup advice, but for this blog post, I’m blessing you with an amazing Mother’s day gift guide. This is the perfect time of year to thank the woman who shaped you into the beautiful makeup lover you are today.

I totally get that every makeup lover is different, depending on lifestyle or just personal preference, so I know it can be challenging buying beauty products for other people, but LUMINESS makes it easy. (and of course, I’m here to help)

I know I probably sound like a broken record, but remember without a solid skincare routine-it’s almost impossible to achieve flawless results without taking care of your skin. So don’t rule out skincare as a gift for your Mother! I’m breaking down the ultimate gift guide for every type of mom and beauty enthusiast to ensure your mom feels beautiful this Mother’s Day. 

Here’s a list of products your mom NEEDS this Mother’s Day.


I’m sure you guys saw this one coming, but all LUMINESS airbrush systems are PERFECT for moms. Airbrushing saves you so much time, by covering my imperfections so quickly and using one tool for almost your ENTIRE makeup routine!

You don’t have to worry about finding the right brush or making sure they’re clean because let’s be honest, who has time to clean their makeup brushes? Not moms!

They will most likely just buy new makeup brushes because it’s easier..which leads me to my next point. Airbrush also saves you so much money compared to traditional makeup!

There’s no need to replenish your makeup brush collection with airbrush, you use one tool for almost everything! With a LUMINESS Airbrush System, you can apply your eye and face makeup, fill in your roots, and also give yourself a natural-looking at-home spray tan!

LUMINESS Airbrush Systems are so versatile. Are you a super busy mom that’s always on the go? Don’t worry, the cordless breeze system can help you achieve flawless results from just about anywhere! There’s a perfect airbrush system for everyone, check out all the LUMINESS Airbrush Systems here:

And of course, the most important part, the results. You can achieve flawless results so easily with all LUMINESS airbrush systems. They cover imperfections so quickly and easily, making your routine shorter, but also give you AMAZING results. What’s better than that? I think my point is proven!


Okay so remember when I said you or your mom shouldn’t be sleeping on your skincare routine? Would you believe me if I told you, I know a way to exercise your face that doesn’t involve cardio? Well, it’s time to start exercising your skin!

My new favorite toy, the Conture Toning Device is a non-invasive anti-aging tool that tones your face and reduces wrinkles. The Contoure Toning Device utilizes Isometric Compression combined with low-frequency vibrations to gently stimulate and tone skin.

All you need is the Kinetic Treatment Serum and you can get to toning. This is the perfect gift for your mom because it’s easy to use and the results are insane! What’s a better gift than youthful-looking skin? Your mom will LOVE this and NEEDS this. 


Velvet Veil Skin Perfecting Serum is so necessary for everyone…can’t you tell by the title? This serum smoothes fine lines and pores creating the perfect base for your makeup!

And it doesn’t stop there, Velvet Veil is essentially a primer that instantly mattifies and hydrates the skin, I even wear it without makeup sometimes- that tells you something about the results!

This allows mom to take a break from makeup for a day, but still feel confident in their skin. If you’re eyeing an airbrush system for your mom, throw in a bottle of Velvet Veil to enhance her airbrush results.


This hair remover is an absolute lifesaver..have you ever met anyone that enjoys the tedious process of traditional shaving? This hair remover can be used from ANYWHERE, no water or shaving cream required!

This powerful shaver easily removes hair without redness or bumps while covering larger areas with ease-if this isn’t a mommy must-have then I don’t know what is!

The fun doesn’t stop there, with this device you can switch the head for ultimate self-care. The Pumice Head can be used on rough areas like your feet, hands, and elbows to remove dead skin cells to achieve more radiant skin.

The Polishing Head works to remove surface oils and impurities from your face to brighten your complexion. For those of you with sensitive skin, I recommend the Silicone Cleansing Head.

It gently, but thoroughly cleanses the skin by massaging away all impurities. Can anyone say at-home spa day? And I’m not finished just yet, there’s one more!

The Smooth Massaging Head stimulates the skin for better absorption of serums and lotions while improving the appearance of puffiness and dark circles under the eye. Every mom deserves a relaxing spa day, why not give her the tools to do it from home! 

I hope all my fellow makeup lovers know EXACTLY what to get all the moms in their life for Mother’s Day. You are all about to be the favorite child for these AMAZING gifts.

At the end of the day, everyone deserves to feel beautiful. Flowers are great, but nothing beats a gift that keeps on giving! So give your mom or a special mom in your life a gift that will make them feel confident and beautiful every day, that is the greatest gift of all. 

5 Must-Have Beauty Products for Summer 2021

Summer is right around the corner, and I’m sure you’re thinking about the perfect beach body and making plans for the 4th of July, but I won’t let you forget about your precious face AND the products that will elevate your beauty routine.

New season, new products. Every season is self-care season, because you and your beautiful face, deserve it!  Today I’m pretty much giving you the ultimate summer survival kit. Get ready to have the brightest complexion at the beach this summer!

Here are some must-have products for this upcoming season, that I cannot live without…


This airbrush system is a must-have for every season because it’s so versatile. You can apply your face and eye makeup, fill in your roots, and give yourself a warm glow with the airbrush tanning tonic kit.

To prep for summer, I will DEFINITELY be giving myself a base with the airbrush tanning tonic using the faster speed on my Icon Pro, of course! This speed will help tan your body faster (which is AMAZING)…it looks so natural and it’s so easy to use.

I’m so thankful for my Icon Pro making my skin look flawless 365 days a year! You can achieve a full summer glow in just a few hours. Your body will go from Memorial Day to labor day in a snap!

TIP: Before self-tanning, be sure to exfoliate to remove dead skin to achieve a smoother surface for the tanning solution. I recommend Bamboo Polish Exfoliant, it reveals brighter and more radiant-looking skin.

Exfoliating and shaving before applying the tanning solution will allow your tan to look more natural and even! Don’t worry, I’m not expecting you to traditionally shave your entire body, no one has time for that. See my next summer must-have for the future of hair removal….


Who dreads shaving and wishing there was an alternative to traditional shaving besides the obvious expensive options like waxing or Lazor? The answer is everyone.

Everyone, I’d like to introduce you to the Silk and Smooth hair remover. This device is specially designed to gently target and remove unwanted hair without causing redness or irritation on your face.

Its older cousin the Silk and Smooth Body Hair Remover is ready to cover all of your body shaving needs with its duo blade razor head. I don’t dread shaving anymore, because these devices make it too easy! Remember to remove hair before you tan, to create a smooth even canvas! 


Travel plans? After a year of no vacations, I’m sure you’re all dying to getaway. Don’t have room to pack your Icon or Legend system? The cordless Breeze system is the perfect airbrush travel buddy!

This airbrush system is cordless so you can do your glam from ANYWHERE and it’s the perfect size to fit in your carry-on. Instead of packing a million makeup brushes, all you have to do is pack your airbrush makeup and your handheld Breeze system-traveling.

The Breeze makes it easy to travel as a makeup lover. You can achieve flawless results from anywhere and everywhere using the Breeze Airbrush system.


I know I mentioned airbrush tanning already, but I’m sure we’re thinking about what can I do to help my glow on the go? Don’t worry as always, LUMINESS, and I have your back.

The Tanning Tonic mist is perfect for on-the-go tanning or touch-ups. It adds a touch of warmth to your skin with just a quick spray, it’s so easy! Side note, it smells AMAZING.

I’m sure you’ve all experienced a smelly self-tanner, and we can all agree it’s awful, but tanning tonic mist smells like a fresh summer day! While giving your skin a beautiful glow, it also moisturizes and softens your skin. When I’m traveling, my tanning tonic mist is always in my suitcase!


As someone who’s tried every blotting-pad ever and settled for toilet paper at a point, I was so happy when LUMINESS’ SPF Setting Powder came into my life.

The SPF Sunscreen Setting Powder is my absolute best friend. I never ever leave the house without it, but for Summer especially, it holds a special place in my heart (and purse).

Now, I never have to feel self-conscious about my oily skin throughout the day and also never have to worry about reapplying sunscreen! This setting powder is designed for on-the-go midday touch-ups.

It absorbs excess oil without messing up your makeup AND it protects your skin from the sun. This product takes multi-purpose to a WHOLE new level, I can blot while protecting my face from the sun making it look fresh all at the same time, it’s incredible. Sunscreen Setting Powder is a beach bag, makeup bag, going-out bag MUST HAVE. 

So, my friends, don’t let summer plans get in the way of your makeup results. Gift yourself with the products that will make your beauty routine easier and your results much better. Which product is number one on your summer wish list? 

Why Every Mom Needs Airbrush in their Life

It’s me again, your friend, your beauty advisor, your life-saver (Not bragging, just happy to hold that title). With Mother’s Day coming up and since I’m always thinking about makeup, I’ve realized that I found the perfect gift for my mom, it’s something that will make her feel beautiful every day, and that in itself is the gift that keeps on giving!

This perfect gift is a LUMINESS airbrush system. I share all the things I love about makeup (particularly airbrush), so why wouldn’t I physically sign my mom up for the airbrush world?

As I’ve said many times, we ALL need airbrush in our lives. However, a makeup tool that saves you time AND gives you flawless results…that’s a no-brainer for every mom out there!

Moms if your reading this, I really hope you’re a member of the airbrush world by now. Also, shout out to the airbrush moms that have been recruiting other moms to fall in love with this amazing tool, no wonder millions are joining the airbrush world!

Here’s why an airbrush system is a perfect gift for all the moms in your life:


In this day and age, we all want to save time, but a mom rarely has a lot of time to apply makeup. *Enters Airbrush* Airbrushing saves me sooo much time in my daily routine, by covering my imperfections so quickly and using one tool for almost my entire makeup routine!

I don’t have to worry about finding the right brush or making sure they’re clean because let’s be honest who has time to clean their makeup brushes? 

Mom’s are busy and all they want to do is achieve flawless results! Well, moms, I have great news for you…airbrushing will give you the results you want quickly and consistently!

With systems like the Legend, Icon, and the Icon Pro you can apply eyeshadow, blush, bronzer…fill in your brows and roots and so much more. 

For moms that are always on the go and need a portable tool..don’t worry there’s a perfect system for you as well! The cordless Breeze Airbrush System is travel and carpool-friendly (only if you are in the park). This system is so easy to use and provides flawless results. 


LUMINESS offers a variety of airbrush foundations and shades, there are many different skin types and skin tones and LUMINESS understands that! For those of you who are frequent foundation wearers, I know you appreciate that. 

LUMINESS also provides foundations that have different finishes and coverage. For example, when my skins clear and I just need a little foundation to even my skin tone, I use Silk 4-In-1 Foundation, which is considered sheer coverage.

When I have dark circles and bad breakouts, my go-to is the Rose 4-In-1 Foundation. Both of these foundations also act as your concealer, primer, foundation, and anti-aging serum.

So like I said earlier, not only does the system itself shorten your routine, LUMINESS also has multi-purpose products-which is always a plus! 

We cannot forget about fine lines and wrinkles…my two favorite LUMINESS products to help hide fine lines and wrinkles are Velvet Veil Serum and CC Concealer.

Velvet Veil is a perfecting serum that soothes fine lines and pores, it’s magical. CC Concealer is an airbrush concealer that works the same way as a traditional concealer, but 20 times better.

It provides ultimate coverage and looks so natural! So you’ll apply the magic serum Velvet Veil first (with your hands), then concealer and foundation with an airbrush system. 


Lastly and most importantly, you should officially invite your mom to the airbrush world because she deserves to feel beautiful and confident! Gift your mom this magical tool so she can enjoy flawless results!

Your mom will think of you every time she does her makeup and thank you when she’s finished…I promise.

So friends, which airbrush system are you gifting to all the moms in your life? I’ll go first, I’m going to get my mom the Icon because I know she’s going to want to do full glam with the system and I’m going to get my grandma the Breeze because now that she’s fully vaccinated, she’s ready to be a world traveler again! I can’t wait to hear your gift ideas!

LUMINESS Airbrush Vs. Traditional Makeup

Airbrush systems and traditional makeup appear to be very different at first glance. The physical difference is obvious, but I’m here to share the super important differences that us makeup lovers, MUST KNOW!

Airbrushing will elevate your makeup routine and provide a long-lasting flawless finish, so as your makeup mentor- I’m encouraging you to take the airbrush leap! Here are the differences between airbrush and traditional makeup and why millions are joining the dark side…


Airbrush=touchless application, Traditional = messy 

The touchless application factor doesn’t seem like a big deal but when you think about that stubborn foundation stain on your vanity-touchless suddenly becomes life-changing.

With airbrush, you can avoid stubborn makeup stains… For once your hand won’t look like you swatched the entire color wheel (I know you all can relate). 

The touchless application also means you don’t have to blend, which we all know can be super time-consuming. The airbrush stylus is specifically designed for accurate application, meaning if the stylus is pointed at your cheekbone while following the basic airbrush rules- the perfect amount of product will be released, and your contour will look on-point! Remember the basic airbrush rules? Don’t worry I’ll remind you anyway!

1) Always keep your stylus moving 

2) Keep four fingers away from face

3)LIGHTLY pull back on trigger

Also- here’s another goodie for you, just one of my many helpful tips…if you like the natural blush look, apply your airbrush blush first, and then foundation over it. No brushes necessary. 

Even though we have a variety of systems, the application is just as easy with all of them! Our cordless Breeze System might look a little different from the Legend, but you can achieve the same amazing results!


Airbrush= multi-functional, Traditional makeup brush= one purpose

Name a traditional makeup tool that you can use to apply eyeshadow, foundation, self-tanner, eyebrows, fill-in roots, blush, highlighter, bronzer, primer, and setting spray…. Any luck? 

Well, I have great news for you, you can apply all these products with any of our airbrush systems. Say goodbye to wasted time cleaning brushes and cluttered makeup bags!

Yes, you can apply airbrush eyeshadow and fill in your roots with the same system. Does it make sense now when I say airbrush elevates your makeup game? I thought so!  Save time and money using one tool to complete your makeup look. This leads to my next point…


Airbrush= long-lasting products, Traditional makeup= frequent refills

I’m sure it seems like airbrushing is expensive between the machine and the actual makeup but compared to traditional makeup you end up saving a ton of money in the end!

Airbrush products are high-quality that not only last longer on your face but last-longer on your vanity. LUMINESS airbrush systems (if used correctly) release the perfect amount of makeup.

I can’t even count the number of times that I’ve wasted a huge clump of traditional makeup, nothing is worse than completing your makeup look, but you dumped out way too much makeup already, such a waste!

Think about all the money you spend on makeup brushes and makeup brush cleaner or getting your roots done! LUMINESS minimizes these expenses and stresses for you!

For those of you who have commitment issues, LUMINESS offers a 30-day trial for only $19.95, you have 30 days to fall in love and practice! If you strangely aren’t loving the system, you have the option to return the system. See more info here!

As someone who wears makeup daily, I know cost is an important factor when considering a new makeup product. This is why airbrush just makes total sense for my budget and lifestyle.

Having a fast-paced lifestyle but being a makeup lover- I need a product that shortens my routine AND provides a flawless finish. I’ve found versatility and amazing results from airbrushing and I need my beauty squad to join me at the top of the makeup game! 


Airbrush= Flawless long-lasting finish, Traditional makeup= Cakey, and unnatural finish

This is the most obvious difference, but also the most important. We all want to look and feel beautiful in our skin. Airbrushing provides flawless results that last all day.. I don’t even have to reapply or touch-up during the day!

Although airbrush covers imperfections, it still looks natural and the furthest thing from cakey- this is rare in the makeup world. LUMINESS airbrush systems make the impossible, possible by providing a full coverage foundation that covers all blemishes without looking like you’re wearing ANYTHING.

As someone who struggles with pimples and discoloration, full coverage is a MUST for me. Therefore, LUMINESS airbrush foundation has given me the results I’ve been looking for my entire makeup career! 

P.S, because I love my results and want them to last forever, I always use Final Seal Setting Spray to protect my glam throughout the day!

Although a few of these differences may seem obvious, I hope it’s just as obvious that airbrush is the perfect beauty tool for everyone and ANYONE! Millions of makeup lovers like yourself have recently joined the airbrush world and they are loving it just as much as I am! Please comment below and share your airbrush love story so we can geek out together. 

Why I Ditched Traditional Makeup

Once upon a time, there was a girl who was passionate about makeup and always eager to try new products. She’s spent her whole life wearing makeup, loving makeup, talking about makeup and so she thought she had all the beauty bases covered.

Then, one day, she discovered a different way of applying makeup that required a shiny new tool. That tool was an airbrush system and that curious girl was me! 

For those of you who’ve read my previous blog posts, you’ve heard my love story with airbrush and my discovery process. However, the list of why I ditched traditional making is on-going and growing..

For those of you who have NEVER read my blog before, you’re in for a treat because I’m going to introduce you to the world of airbrush. I’ll explain why you NEED airbrush in your life, how you achieve flawless results and you, my friend, will be tossing your liquid foundation in the garbage by the end of this post. 


As for makeup lovers, we can spot a high-quality product from a mile away. However, people will claim that a product is high-quality because it’s expensive and that is not always the case.

Since I use makeup every day, I need long-lasting, affordable products and thankfully my LUMINESS airbrush system is the gift that keeps on giving! First and foremost, if used correctly the airbrush system releases very little product. (Like up to 10 times less than my regular makeup!) 

This is because of the great coverage and active ingredients in all LUMINESS foundations. 

Second, not only do you achieve a flawless finish from airbrush foundation, but you can also use your airbrush system to fill in your eyebrows, roots, apply eyeshadow, full contour, and give yourself a glow with self-tanner!

Do you know how much time and money that saves you? Say goodbye to soaking your makeup brushes for days or buying multiple brushes for different products because your airbrush system has you covered.

I can’t even imagine how much money I’ve wasted on makeup brushes and spray tans throughout the years… 

It’s a no-brainer – airbrushing allows you to achieve professional-looking results AND you save money? Hello, sign me up! Airbrushing is a makeup lover’s best friend because of its affordable, easy, quick application and the results are unmatched! 


Airbrushing cuts my makeup routine in half! (Seriously, I have timed it.) Airbrush covers imperfections much quicker than a traditional foundation brush, so say goodbye to blending with stubborn brushes and hello to the magical mist of airbrush.

So yes, the actual system applies the perfect amount of foundation with ease making your routine shorter and your job MUCH easier! It does all the blending for you!

LUMINESS also has multi-purpose foundations, which saves me SO much time on a daily. I am #TeamMultiPurposeProducts. I’d like to introduce you to two life-changing foundations Rose 4-In-1 and Silk 4-In-1.

These foundations are also your concealer, moisturizing primer, and anti-aging serum. And, there’s a perfect multi-purpose for everyone. Rose Foundation provides medium-full coverage (and smells like a spa day).

Silk Foundation, is sheer-medium coverage, silky smooth finish – allowing the best you to shine through (the name is SO fitting). See, I told you airbrushing is the gift that keeps giving!

Are your foundation brushes in the garbage yet? 


Personally, I like to purchase products from brands whose values and vibe align with mine. I like to think I’m super caring and supportive, I mean this blog for example…I’m here to support fellow beauty lovers because I care and I want everyone to feel beautiful! And that’s exactly how LUMINESS operates.

LUMINESS provides support in so many ways, starting with hosting FB lives M-F @9:30am CT to talk everything airbrush, but if you’re not a morning person, don’t worry!

You can book a 1:1 appointment or group session with an airbrush artist for any makeup support you may need. Sign up now and tell them Liv sent you. Trust me, I’ve learned from the best, you’re in GREAT hands.  Here’s the link: 

Another commendable action by LUMINESS is their new partnership with ASPCA. LUMINESS is teaming up with ASPCA to join the fight against animal cruelty.

For every airbrush system sold, LUMINESS will donate $1 to ASPCA, with a maxim donation of $50,000. It’s great to see a brand that gives back, I love how LUMINESS cares about its customers and community. 


Although the other perks of airbrushing are MUCH appreciated and wonderful, the ultimate goal is to love your results! We all deserve to feel beautiful and thanks to airbrush, I feel confident no matter how tired I am or how many blemishes I’m fighting-airbrush always has my back.

Airbrush foundation also lasts all day long – no touch-ups necessary! This is super important to me because my days are packed. I barely have time to apply my makeup the first time – you think I have time to fix it?

Even though airbrush foundation is long-lasting on its own, to ensure your face stays mask-proof/life-proof, I use Final Seal Setting Spray. Once you’re done applying your makeup, just give your face spray and you’re good for up to 18 hours!

So, friends, I hope my airbrush fairytale made you rearrange your vanity because it’s time to make room for a makeup routine upgrade. Comment below and share your airbrush journey with me, I can’t wait to hear about your amazing experience. Happy airbrushing!
