For years I have been flirting with the idea of investing in my own makeup airbrush system. A few things have held me back. First, many systems on the market have proprietary mechanisms which only allow you to use their very expensive makeup in their airbrush system. Considering the relative simplicity and ubiquity of airbrush technology, purchasing such a limited device makes no sense. All these airbrushers are basically the same whether you are decorating a cake, making miniature models, or painting your face. Don’t let those sneaky cosmetics companies convince you that you need to pay several hundred dollars for a device that is widely available for well under $100 bucks. I did consider purchasing an airbrush system originally developed for crafting or cake decorating, but during my dithering fate made my choice. This Christmas I received the Tickled Pink Airbrush System. At first, I was off-put by the cutesy-ness of it all. It was just so pink and precious and that shit makes me heave. Also, the makeup looked cheap in the bottle, and I was skeptical I could blend a color that would rival the natural look of my perennially favorite base Bobbi Brown. So the system sat on my shelf for several months. Only when a photo shoot threatened to expose my skin’s most obvious flaws did I pull Tickled Pink out and give it a whirl. My prejudices rarely work in my favor. I need to learn to give things a chance because Tickled Pink is the absolute bees knees bitches. Ignore the cheesy cheap packaging and focus on the splendid makeup. Mix the colors in your range to create the perfect customized shade from day to day. Super duper weightless yet full coverage, with Tickled Pink you are living the dream (right Lisa?).I know you are thinking that learning to airbrush your own face could be tricky. Yes, it takes practice, but it isn’t that hard. Five times and you’ll find your fluency. With the awkward angle of self-application, I personally find using my thumb to pull back the trigger helps with control and steadiness. Prepare to enjoy weightless, airy, flawless coverage glowiness all day long with Tickled Pink Airbrush. Once you’ve had airbrush, traditional methods just won’t do.
