These pics are of me this past Saturday morning. On the left, no make up. On the right, air brush make up. I was introduced to it by my colleague and friend Jennifer Lee. Jen is one of the make-up artists at NBC - and does quite a lot of special occasion and wedding work, too. She introduced me to an airbrush make-up application device that was impressive. Not only because it gave a nice dewy finish, but also because it was literally lighter than air and could last for hours. Unlike conventional foundation, it feels as fresh as bare skin.
I didn't think I could manage the device myself, but Jen encouraged me and I went for it. The pics above are of my first DIY. I read the instructions on the box, watched an online video, and also used the tips and tricks that Jen had taught me. It took about ten minutes overall -- to apply the airbrush foundation and a little bronzer on the cheeks, and then, some conventional eye color, eyeliner, lipstick. I finished with a little face brush to smooth out any edges. (Few, if any). I was done. And it lasted from morning to afternoon.
In a busy world with not much time for primping, and a desire to look good all the long work day, this is a find for women and men. It is called Temptuair. Its a small handheld device that is rechargeable. The foundation, bronzer and blusher come in pods that insert into the device. Not messy. Easy to store. Easy to use. I bought the device and three pods. Pricey, but worth it.
