When the Luminess Airbrush Makeup system arrived, my 13-year-old daughter was all over it. Finally, she said…a gadget for makeup! She wanted to try it out because she has had a hard time with foundation blending on her skin. So I let her try it out first. She spent several hours watching the videos online, mixing colors to get the perfect match and practicing with the airbrush wand.

This is the picture I took of Sami before she started.

Luminess Airbrush Make-up beforeWe received the Professional Luminess Airbrush Makeup Edition which includes the 3-speed Professional Airbrush system, several bottles of foundation, blush, moisturizer, bronzer, glow enhancer, eyeshadow duo and the learning DVD. Our DVD was in spanish, so we went to the internet and watched the following videos.

Airbrush Makeup Prepping

The first video is a basic introduction.

The second video shows you how to match the foundation to your skin color. Sami and I both needed a mix of 1 and 2 to match our skin tone perfectly.

The last video shows you how to apply the makeup. We found it easiest to watch the video a few times first. Then prepare your kit and watch the video while you are applying the makeup for the first time. Be sure the area is well-lit. This was the first mistake I made when I applied the makeup. I didn’t have a well-lit bathroom and the makeup didn’t look right. But when I moved to a bathroom with better lighting, the difference was huge. It looked much better.

After Luminess Airbrush Makeup

Here is Sami’s after photo.

Luminess Airbrush Tips

Here are a few notes that Sami said I had to include in the review:

  • A bit of the foundation goes a long way. You do not need much.
  • Practice, practice, practice. She said it did take a few tries to get it right, but once she did, it is so easy.
  • Watch the videos!!! We need to admit that we did try to do this at first without really watching the videos very closely. Don’t try that!! You need the videos. They help a ton!
  • How you hold the wand makes a big difference when you are putting it on. Be sure to follow the directions and hold like a pencil.
  • The airbrush is really easy to clean and be sure you do it after you use it every time.

Now Sami is ready to try the airbrush tanning system because she loved the Luminess Airbrush Makeup so much.  Here is one last side by side of the before and after of Sami.

Disclosure: We received the Luminess Professional Airbrush kit in exchange for this review. All opinions are 100% my own and Sami’s.

  • hi there,

    so the summer is over and you have this now for 3 months.

    are you still happy with it? would you buy it again? anything that has changed, good or bad?


    • I don’t wear makeup as often, but my daughter does and she has been using it a LOT. She loves it because she said it covers her blemishes up better than anything she has tried. She is a dancer too and she can adjust how much she puts on for dance. She needs a bit more for productions. She also likes that she can adjust the color depending on the shade of her skin. In the summer it’s a bit darker than in the winter. We have not had to buy more either, so a little goes a long way.

  • Just curious if you and your daughter are still using the airbrush. I hate spending lots of time in the mornings, I am not completely unhappy with how long it takes to apply makeup, but I am impressed with what the infomercial portrayed.

    The rare occasions I purchase gadgets, they loose their allure quickly. lol Thoughts?

    Thank you!

  • You should NOT put your daughter’s face on the Internet! I understand you were doing a product review, but putting your daughter’s face online like this, in my opinion, is really inappropriate. You are an adult. If you wanted to put your own face on your blog – then great. However, kids should be shielded as much as possible until THEY are adults.

    • Thank you Sara for your opinion, however, I disagree. Under careful supervision, I am teaching my children how to safely use the internet. I feel that if you shield them from reality, they will not learn. However, I appreciate that others choose to shield their children and I can respect that decision. We all make our own choices.

  • WOW! It looks so natural. I really wouldn’t have known she had foundation on in the ‘after’ photo. I have a terrible time getting foundation blended, think they’ll send me one to review? lol

Let me know what you thought!!
