Luminess Air Reviews:
The Luminess Air Legend Airbrush System is Luminess Air’s basic airbrushing kit, and is the kit we will be referring to in this review.
This kit comes with all you will need to apply your airbrush makeup for personal use. It includes a duo of foundation shades that you can mix to create your perfect match.
If you have difficulty finding the correct shade for you, Luminess Air has a ‘color match’ system at your disposal. All you have to do is upload a photo of your face in natural lighting and a makeup expert with tell you your perfect match!
This system’s air compressor does not have an adjustable airflow, unlike many other airbrush kits available today. What does this mean for you?
It’s pretty simple actually, you will not change settings for each step of your makeup such as blush, foundation, and highlighter.
Instead of changing a dial you will pull back your finger on the trigger less or more depending on the product you’re using.
This will have essentially the same effect as turning a dial would so should not be considered a drawback.
It may even help you gain better control over your airbrushing skills.
