Airbrush. It's not just for celebs anymore!!

I look through magazines and admire the skin tone and sheer perfection of so many models and actresses. The beauty that comes in my mailbox through Elle, Cosmo, Glamour, Latina, Marie Claire...(Yes I have A LOT of subscriptions...LOL). I mean how can you NOT? Look at Eva Mendez, Eva Longoria, Helena Christiansen, Madonna!! Now, granted these women are already beautiful, fit and confident, but..... you can't tell me that these women don't have bad hair days, puffy eyes, an occasional break out etc.. Of course they do!

It doesn't help that a lot of designers, cosmetic companies and magazines use girls in their late teens to early 20's to advertise their eye cream, or anti-wrinkle serums. Nothing like making us all feel as though we NEED what they've got to make us look like that...LOL..

Just looking at the tabloids should tell you that these celebs don't ALWAYS look fabulous. You can Google "before and afters" and you will get a plethora of images from Brittany Spears, Christina Aguilera, Cher, Jennifer Garner and even Halle Berry. Though I'm not a fan of calling out these ladies in their "less than perfect" state, I am an advocate of helping other women realize that they're not so different from those who have access to a professional make up artist at any given time.

Remember sitting around with your friends admiring the women in your favorite magazine and inevitably one of you blurt out "That's airbrushed". For so long we mistakenly gave credit to airbrush when in fact it was photo shop. Personally, I heart photo shop..LOL... BUT... lets not take away from the new airbrush craze that is the airbrush compressor!!!

There are SOOO many companies that sell their own version of "THE BEST" compressor. From OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics), Temptu, Luminess & Dinair they've all got something for everyone. I guess it just depends on how much you can spend and how much you will use your new compressor and airbrush.

Lets assume you've already purchased your compressor and airbrush. You've even got a bunch of foundation, contours, highlighters, shadows etc... Now, what will you do with it? Lets face it, you don't want to WASTE your product attempting to teach yourself how to use your machine. At least not without having SOME idea of what to do in the first place.

I would suggest you take a class. This way you have professional makeup artists who are well versed in using the machines and have techniques on how to simplify the process for you. This is of course assuming you have the MONEY to take a class. If you don't.. don't worry!! There is another option.

Remember, you can find just about ANYTHING on the Internet. You don't HAVE to go pay for a class if you absolutely can't afford it. Granted, being in a classroom has it's advantages, since you can ask questions that YOU are in need of having answered and that's not necessarily the case with online learning but still.. lets not turn our noses up at online learning.

There are many companies who now offer a detailed tutorial on how to use their machines & their makeup. Now you can tune in and get ready to take notes, or get ready to work right along side with them.

Here are just a few of the websites that I've found that can help you with whatever compressor you may have. Some of them tell you the pressure to use some of them don't. So there will be some things you have to figure out on your own if you're doing this online.

www.luminessworkshop.com
www.temptupro.com
www.youtube.com
www.laurelcosmetics.com

Now these are just a few that I found for you but use your Google search engine and type different key words. Give yourself a fighting chance to catch up to others who have already mastered the art of airbrush.

I would suggest having someone you can practice on with you. Turn on your computer and press play. As they show you what to do, do it at the same time. You can pause the feed until you catch up, rewind if you didn't quite catch what they said and re-play if you would like to see it all over again. You can then compare your technique with theirs, your outcome to theirs and make note of what you need to practice.

I'm sure you already know that you don't have to reserve your airbrush compressor for clients. Give yourself the luxury of airbrush to enhance or conceal your features by finding the shade that's just right for you. Master the application and make it the easiest way to give yourself a "feel good" pick me up on a daily basis.
