My GlamBox Day with Beauty Bloggers

A bevy of beauty bloggers came together one day in January to get a first glimpse at the latest innovation in makeup: airbrush cosmetics.

No, I’m not really a beauty blogger. But I must confess, being surrounded by all these friends who are into it has given me quite an education in the how-to’s of  ‘dagdag-bawas’ in the right places to highlight one’s personal facial features.

Also there was Phoebe but for some reason, I can’t find a pic of her among my pics of the day!

So, what is this airbrush makeup?

Think of car painting. Yup, car painting.

Did you ever wonder why car paint is not applied with a brush but with spray paint using an industrial compressor? To give the body an even, natural look, right? Well, this concept is now being applied to makeup!

This tiny compact GlamBox, which comes in a luscious pink (my favorite color)  & black combination, when used with its compressor and gun, sprays a very fine mist of liquid foundation on the skin. The effect is natural, evenly applied, flawless complexion.

Glambox is so versatile. It can be used to contour and highlight facial features and it can also be used to airbrush the body for coverage and for sunless tanning.

The procedure is easy, actually, according to Valerie Tan, who first showed us a demo of the whole procedure. Pour about 10 drops of the liquid foundation into the gun, choose any of 3 air pressure modes (1-for the eyes, 2-for the face and neck, and 3-for the rest of the body), hold the gun about 6 inches from the area, and spray away!

I gamely agreed to be the guinea pig. Why not? There were 3 makeup artists in my midst! When else can I get makeup done for free — and with GlamBox’s airbrush makeup pa? Here’s my dear friend, Bambi, with what I call her “weapons of mass beauty” making me over.

After it was sprayed on me, I hardly noticed the airsprayed foundation. Unlike the usual liquid foundation which can feel cake-y and heavy, the effect of using the Glambox gun and compressor was surprisingly almost NOT there! Bambi finished off the makeup session with eyeshadow, blush-on. I reapplied mascara and lipstick and ***drum roll*** — here’s what I look like after, with airbrush makeup — and clowning around with Bambi.

And another one with Hannah, who also got to try the airbrush makeup.

    Hi Jane! Your airbrushed look is totally totally FABULEUX!!!! I’ve been an avid MMU user since 2008, but after reading this, I’m suddenly super CURIOUS and sooo tempted to try it out…

    Do they have a booth/outlet where you can try it out first, and then maybe do a test run… I know this is an ongoing trend for makeup artists, but what about regular consumers? Is it easy to do it on your own face?

    @Rezywezy – You’re in luck. They do have an outlet along Wilson St. (on opposite side of the Ditas Sandico Ong shop, a white building with many medical/dental clinics) where you can check GlamBox out. I would think they’d have a demo unit there, much like the one Valerie used on us. The nice thing about this GlamBox is that it looks precisely like something we can use ourselves. A little practice holding the gun from a distance and I think we can get the hang of it. Actually, Valerie said to practice without the liquid foundation in the gun first just to feel the blast of air coming out and practice holding it in different directions. Check it out.
