Fun with Color FX Luminess Air Hair & Body Color | Review & Demo

Hey beauty babes welcome and thank you so much for joining me! I've got a fun review and video demo to share with you today, but I first wanted to give a Big thanks to Luminess Air for Sponsoring this post! I hope you all enjoy this review and demo of Luminess Air's new Color FX Spray on Hair & Body ColorI will be showing you the various ways I have been using Color FX for myself in the photos here as well as the video at the end of this post. I really encourage you to watch it to see the demo on how I "transformed" myself into a Tiger. (haha)

Of course these products are not going to be a necessity for everyone. But for those who do face paintings for parties or SFX Makeup - this would be incredible! Even if you are just starting out and/or are curious to get into something of this nature - I'd recommend these products and the Luminess Air system. Its incredible easy to use and work with. As with anything - "practice makes perfect" but you may be surprised how quick you will catch on. If you are even the slightest bit creative you will LOVE the Color FX line!
Even though I am not a face & body painter nor a special FX artist, I have really been enjoying the Color FX Line! From adding fun color and designs to my kids' hair to transforming myself into a Tiger - these have been a blast to try out. BTW this was my very first time attempting a "look" like this - so don't judge too harshly, but feel free to laugh and enjoy! ;)

Here is a peek at some of the ways I have put Color FX to use! My kids especially have LOVED to have me add color and fun designs to their hair. I simply used some flexible stencils I found at Walmart. Although, even if you don't have stencils, the airbrush system actually creates pretty precise lines so you can free-hand designs and looks without stencils. You will get an idea of the precision if you watch the video demo. ;)
I received the "Classic Collection" Starter kit which includes the Primary Colors Red, Yellow and Blue, as well as a green, white and black! The colors are available as a set or sold individually. And they also carry metallic colors and a metallic collection starter kit as well. I imagine those would be even more fun to work with!

Color FX are very vibrant and show up opaque on their own. There is need to mix them with white first so they show up or anything. Although whats really great is that you can mix the colors together, as you will see me doing in the demo, that way you can custom make any color you need for any look you want to create!

Color FX is hypoallergenic, silicon, talc, fragrance, paraben and oil free, non-comedogenic and suitable for all skin types. 

Whats also nice is that the color fx dries pretty quickly and they feel pretty comfortable on the skin. They are made with a Water-based formula that is long lasting as well as humidity, sweat and water-resistant.

And even though they are long lasting, they are still really easy to remove. You dont have scrub your skin to get it off. Soap and water is all it takes to easily remove it from your skin and evern your hair. 

For those of you curious to see these products in action, I encourage you to watch the video for the full demo! If you have any question - please dont hesitate to ask!

Much Love & Hugs,

Gun Metal Smokey Eye Tutorial

Hey beauty babes thank you SO much for joining me today! I am back with a new "Get The Look" video tutorial that is quite a bit different for me. If you know me, you know how much I LOVE warm tones - so this cool toned Gun Metal smokey eye is definitely a step out of my comfort zone...

But I love how it turned out and I hope you do too! ♥  Anyways, before we get started I just wanted to take a moment to thank Luminess Air for Sponsoring this post and video! I did receive the palette I am using got this tutorial from Luminess Air, and will have a brief review of it here and at the end of my video tutorial as well! All the details on this look will be listed out in this post, as usual, but I do encourage you to check out the video tutorial so you can see how to achieve this look. PLUS see these eyeshadows in action for yourself! ;)

Ok, so as I mentioned I got this "Simply Golden" palette for review from Luminess Air. Now before I let you know my thoughts, I have some interesting news about this particular palette - Luminess Air has actually given it a bit of an upgrade and now all of the shades from the Simply Golden Palette can be 
found in their new Nude & Naughty Palette, which is a much larger 36 pan palette. And its on the website currently, for just $9.99, which is a great deal in my opinion!!

The shadows in this Simply Golden palette that I have, are quite lovely, they're pigmented, they blend well, they're not patchy, the mattes are great and the shimmers are buttery and beautiful! ♥ 

Something I found interesting is that while this was called simply golden palette - with a nice aray or warm golden tones, it also included several cooler silver tones too. As you can tell from this look and tutorial. So I'm pretty pleased with the versatility offered from what appeared, at first glance, to be a very simple palette! Truth be told, it really surprised me how much I ended up liking this palette

So I am confident that the new Naughty & Nude Palette would be recommend from me, being that is has all of these 12 shadows plus 24 more - adding to the versatility of it. Factor in the small $10 price tag and you really cant go wrong!

One thing I would like to make note of is that the first ingredient in these shadows is talc. That is not a huge deal to me, but I know for some that is a red flag ingredient. So I just wanted to make that known since you cannot find the ingredients on the website - only on the back of the palette.

Lastly, here are some swatches so you can see ALL of the shades from the Simply Golden Palette. I truly love the mix of warm and cooler tones here, plus just enough mattes mixed in with the shimmers. So you dont have to reach for other palettes! 

For anyone curious, these swatches were done over a primer (Urban Decay Primer Potion) and these are brush swatches - not my finger swatches! The brush I used was a flat brush (the same one I used with the shimmer shade in the video tutorial). Usually brush swatches "make or break" opinions, because almost any shadow will swatch well with fingers. But its how they look with a brush that counts. And these look, apply and wear beautiful!! 

Don't forget to watch the tutorial!
