I’ve tried a few of the lines and I really believe we’ve reached the next level when it comes to airbrush makeup and it’s called BELLOCCIO. Their system contains anti-aging moisturizers like Hyaluronic Acid and aloe (this was just a matter of time though, right?). Airbrush makeup has definitely taken off and it’s not just for the professional person as I know a few people who use it as their everyday makeup. As far as the technique goes, the only challenge is finding your perfect shade, which for the average person can be just that, a challenge. With Belloccio, they try to make it less daunting by having you choose your color palette on their site. The shade families are: Fair, Medium Tan and Dark. Not too difficult. Each color set will include 4 shades (also a bottle of white and black) that fall into that color family – cool, neutral, warm, again, whichever fall into that tone family. Try one of the shades and you may find that you have to add 3 drops of one and then 1 drop of a darker one to get your exact shade. Yes, it will take some time to get the right color but that’s kind of the fun of this kind of makeup. Because once you know your mixture, you can up or down it a little depending on the time of year.
Items start at $49.99 and go up from there depending on if you get colors in addition to the foundations. I recommend the Starter Kit, which includes the compressor, airbrush w/hose, foundation set, blush trio pack, bronzer, their Anti-Aging Moisturizing Primer to help it last for hours, a tanning solution, a 4oz bottle of airbrush cleaner, instructional brochure and DVD, all for $179.99.

And if you are still afraid of trying it out, I recommend checking out their YouTube channel here. Sometimes a nice visual is all you need, right?
