Self-proclaimed “beauty product junkie” and blogger Camille Styles readily admits that she’s tried every beauty product under the sun … except for airbrush. “I’d occasionally hear friends mention they’d had it done for a special occasion, but assumed the at-home versions were hard to use or too clunky to fit in a drawer,” she shared on camillestyles.com.
She invited her photographer friend Kristen to come over and help her figure out the Luminess Legend. “Surprise: there was really nothing to figure out. You plug in the palm-sized device, put a few drops of foundation into the stylus, press an ‘on’ button then gently pull back on the throttle while a fine, barely perceptible mist kisses your face.”
“The mist was so subtle that I almost thought nothing was happening, but when I opened my eyes, surprise again! My skin looked flawless. I’d worried that I needed to cover up my hair and clothes so the foundation didn’t spray onto them, but somehow, magically, there wasn’t a trace.”
Camille especially loves the primer, which she uses just about every day, and how hygienic the system is. Because you apply your makeup using air and a stylus, you don’t have to worry about bacteria and infections from dirty hands or brushes. “I actually use it daily — I can apply it faster than ‘normal’ foundation, plus I do think that not using a sponge or my fingers to apply has helped keep away the occasional acne I used to get. You can apply a really light spray so that the effect is super natural, or do a few layers to make it a more full coverage ‘special occasion’ look.”
“Final verdict? I’m obsessed. Not only because of the naturally flawless finish the Airbrush provides, but also because of how quickly I can apply foundation now — literally, 30 seconds flat.”
