In late 2006, while at Planet Blue in Malibu, California, I met a wonderful salesperson who shared with me the latest in makeup technology. I was thrilled to learn that foundation was now being airbrushed on to the skin, and that because of the professional results of the process, the store was unable to keep the aerosol cans of foundation in stock. Their demand was greater than their supply!
I listened as the salesperson explained in detail how the foundation was formulated, why it worked so well and how it left such a flawless finish. She then airbrushed foundation onto me while also instructing me on how to use it. The results, as promised, were spectacular. She matched me for color, suggested a bronzer, and I rolled over like a puppy and said, “Yes.” Ever since that application, I’ve been using airbrush makeup for special occasions and to even out tan lines.
Attending a major cosmetic company party, I again decided to check out the airbrush makeup offerings. This product sprayed out lighter than the other I had bought previously. Enthused once more, I attempted to purchase this product and found it was also low in stock, signifying a troublesome recurring theme. However, as a consolation, I witnessed an airbrushing demonstration where an entire body was airbrushed using a professional compressor complete with portable aerosol can techniques, finishing with an incredible look.
