Review of SKII Air Touch Foundation [DISCONTINUED] by CJCJ
Purchased this during Saks F&F for 15% off the $150 price. I spent quite some time talking to the line rep for SKll about things I'd read here and wanted to know exactly what I could and could not do. I took notes, lol. I purchased OP-l. My coloring is NW10 (if MAC made it). The end result was flawless, long lasting makeup. Here is what I did:
1) Used MAC Prep & Prime spf50
2) Used Serge Luten primer over that
3) Applied concealer and powder blush- applied blush much HEAVIER than I normally would
4) Sprayed forehead. Stopped. Sprayed middle of face. Stopped. Sprayed bottom of face. Stopped. Checked it out in the mirror. The one area that I have bad skin discoloring I sprayed twice more (2-4 seconds each time).
5)Applied eye makeup and mascara. No need to use my eye or mascara bases!! Woo Hoo.
6) Applied lipstick
Now, here is where I deviated from most. I don't like the dewy look; it looks like I've been sweating. During the dry winter months, this may be fine, but humidity is hitting the area and the summer months are almost upon my area, so I MUST powder. The SA said wait 30 minutes or so BEFORE press/patting powder into the face. So, I did. I added a coat of T.LeClerc pure white powder all over my face. At first, it looked, well, bad, lol. About 15 minutes later, the powder had blended or melted into the foundation and I had a creamy, porcelain texture to my skin which lasted until I washed my face at 10 that night. NO TOUCH-UPS during the day.
I don't know if this will work during the summer for me. Sweat=moistness and your skin MUST be matte/dry when you apply this foundation. During the winter, though, it will be fantastic. Oh, the little drop you lose at the beginning of using the machine? Use a concealor brush and apply it under your eye OVER your concealor (or by itself). Amazing. HTH anyone interested. My SA was super. She sprayed me with 5 other women looking on. They all bought the system based on me being air-brushed, lol.
