*Please read the contest rules carefully. I am NOT giving away an airbrush system. The prize is an eye makeup kit. Many people think I am giving away the system.
I'm not a big fan of my skin. Granted I don't have a lot of blemishes and acne, it's not as clear as I would like it to be. Some celebrities have absolutely gorgeous skin, and I've always wished mine could look as good as theirs (thanks to great makeup!). Well, now mine can!

I never knew that an airbrush makeup system would be available to the general public until I found out about Luminess!
I was sent a Luminess Pro airbrush system which had a silver kit which contained the compressor, stylus, airbrush eyeshadow kit, informational DVD, and airbrush cosmetics starter kit. The starter kit had various shades of foundation, blush, and primer.
I have to admit that before I tried the system, I was a little hesitant. The system seemed a little hard to use. I read the manual where they had pictures of how to properly use the system without leaving your face splotchy and cakey from the makeup, and then had pictures showing you what you don't want to look like. I thought "I hope I can do this right!"
I watched the techniques demonstrated on the DVD. I then selected my shade of foundation and filled the stylus to the correct level and gave it a go. It was hard to get used to using the stylus at first and I messed up slightly at first, but then I got the hang of it. You can achieve light, medium, or a full layer of coverage depending on what you prefer. If you choose to have more than a light layer of coverage, all you have to do is wait 2-5 seconds for the makeup to dry before applying your next layer. If you don't wait the makeup becomes blotchy and has a caked on look. Not pretty!
I really like the level of coverage the makeup provided me with. The stylus is not hard to fill with the makeup, it's pretty easy. The foundation looked very natural, but not overly done up either. It covered what I want covered and gave me a soft look. I have not used the eyeshadow kit or the blush yet, but I am curious to try them soon. This machine gives me better coverage than foundation I've ever used and I'm truly pleased with it. I like the storage case it comes with because it can be stored away easily.
