I am a makeup artist and I do mostly weddings and photography. I have not gotten into air brushing (yet) but was just using a regular liquid foundation for clients. I wanted to try something new and my local drugstore started to carry this line and I was really excited to try it. I apply it with a sponge and press it into their skin lightly. The shades are great and match really well with many different types of skin tones. It blends really nice into the skin and leaves a flawless finish. Its medium coverage but I find its just enough to even out your skintone without caking on makeup. Brides have commented that it feels very light on their skin which I think its very important if you don't wear makeup a lot and if you are getting married during prime wedding season of summer. Brides have also came back and said that this foundation lasted all through the night (I use an Arbonne primer under and set it with MAC Prep & Prime Setting Powder). One bride even had a consultation at a high end makeup counter and said she was shiny within a couple of hours but not with this foundation - she was still flawless at 3AM. I have seen this foundation in pictures and it photographs beautifully! I took off a lipstick for a few small reasons - the smell is very strong and gas-like and the price was ridiculous at $21.99 for just 1! When I ran low on my "light" shade I went back and my drugstore informed me that they weren't sure if they were getting any more back in stock so now I have to order it online which is a pain. I will repurchase this if and when I can get my hands on it again and for now this is my HG foundation for brides/photography because it is the closest you will get to the airbrushed look. Those of you who are having dry spot problems - its probably not the foundation but your skin. Make sure you moisturise well and pay particular attention places that may be drier than others. I've had a lot of clients/experience and any foundation will stick to dry skin if its not properly moisturised.
