Airflash is nothing new to the market, but it’s something I can’t help but RAVE about constantly!
When I was introduced to the product, there were only a few shades available. Even though my skin tone was NOT one of them, my poor little misguided high-schooler self thought that the only thing better than a spray foundation, was a spray foundation that gave me an instant tan! The line of demarcation across my jawline didn’t agree, unfortunately. To be fair, at the time I was also convinced that lavender eyeliner went well with everything. Fast-forward about 6 years, and there’s now a complete 10-shade color range that even my fair skin can find a niche in!
The official Dior application method is to spray the foundation directly onto the skin, first in a “Z” shape, and then in an “M”.
This is NOT my preferred method, for a few reasons –
1) I don’t enjoy flesh colored eyebrows and lashes. The over spray situation is ridiculous!
2) Controlled, even application is impossible.
3) It’s a huge WASTE – when you’re paying $62 for a foundation, you don’t want to be spraying half of it into the atmosphere.
However, you can get a beautiful, flawless finish by spraying it onto a synthetic domed brush and buffing it on in a circular motion. The mother of pearl in the formula gives an amazing glow without looking oily, and this stuff is seriously long-wearing and water resistant. For the price point, I usually recommend it as a special occasion foundation, but there is no rule that says you can’t wear it every day if your heart so desires!
