Getting the Celebrity Airbrush Makeup Look

Catherine Zeta Jones wears it. So does Jennifer Lopez. Why? Airbrush makeup creates a flawless face, almost as if you took your picture and ran it through Photoshop. Here’s how it works. A tiny amount of specialized foundation makeup is mixed with a few drops of water, and then sprayed onto the face with a wand. The result is a sheer, yet full coverage. You end up wearing less foundation, but with a flawless finish. It even hides under eye circles and rosacea.

After that, all you will need is the foundation. Expect to pay from $120 to $600 or more as your initial investment. Once you’ve purchased your kit, the only further cost is foundation, which can be about $20. Some companies are making smaller compressors, which are easier for home use and for travel. How to Apply 1. Place a few drops of foundation into the designated cup, along with a few drops of water.

Many of them have no real suggestion what is in them but they are sure to tell you just who is underwriting them. As a consumer, you should know a little more about the cosmetics you are applying to your body before you put them on. And, you should discover the quality of the product far more so than the name on the label. Celebrity Perfume: Worth It? Celebrity perfume is one of the utmost selling kinds of perfume. From Celine Dion’s to Jennifer Lopez’s, each celebrity these days is putting their name on a bottle of the stuff. But, don’t think that they really have much to do with actually creating the fragrance themselves. In the most ideal case scenario, they may smell a large number of options and then choose the one that fits their tastes the best (and that doesn’t mean they will wear it all the time either) In fact, Glow, the fragrance that JLo herself has chosen along with a good amount of other in the family bring in about $100 million a year, which gives her a cut anywhere between five and ten percent of it. Organics Instead? While it is stylish to wear celebrity perfume, it isn’t necessarily the best way to get the smell that you will love. Instead, consider the fragrances of natural products such as lavender and vanilla. The nature-based products are more of a nature-based smell, one which is lighter and often more powerful that what you would get through a bottle of perfume.
