Review on Dinair Airbrush Makeup

A couple weeks ago, I went down to Hollywood to take an airbrush class at the Dinair Airbrush Studios.  I have heard amazing testimonials from other makeup artists about this company and knew that I had to learn from the best.

At first, I have to admit I was not too excited to go…James and I were in the middle of moving and my mind was all over the place.  When I went down, I was thinking of just getting through the next 4 days so I can get back home to take care of my life. 
I really thought I was just going to learn how to use the airbrush gun and all the basics.  Within in the first 10 minutes of class, my whole outlook changed!!  This was such an amazing class, I don’t even know where to start.
You get to learn every aspect of airbrush makeup.  You learn foundation, contouring, eyes, lips, cheeks, tattoo coverage and even fantasy makeup!  They teach you how to use, clean and maintain the tools.  I really loved the Dinair makeup products too.  I have used other airbrush makeup before and this has been the best.  I love that it is non-cakey and you get a true flawless finish.  I have very oily skin and the foundation stopped the oils from coming through.  And the best part, I could rub my hands on my face and it was not coming off!  BUT then at night when it was time to wash my face, it came off so easily with my face wash.  I actually wear the airbrush makeup on a daily basis because it has done wonders for my skin.  It feels tighter and has cleared up some blemishes.
You also learn how to do full body spray tans and offer the kits at a super low price!  I was SOLD!  And the Hair Bling…now naturally my eyes are attracted to anything that sparkles…so I was instantly interested in this!  They show you how to put it in the hair and ever since I have had it in my hair, people are constantly stopping me!  I love it!  Another aspect of the class is they teach you how you can sell the airbrush kits yourself…a whole other business aspect.  I really loved that the trainers were there to help YOU build your business.
I have to say the best part about taking the Dinair class, was the Dinair family!!!  They were all so amazing and so helpful!  Dina, Al and Julie make that company what it is today.  After the class, my friend and I, had the opportunity to go to dinner with Dina, the owner of Dinair, and Al and were able to really talk to her on a personal level.  Her advice was priceless!!!  She has been in the business forever and I felt like a sponge…soaking up all her words!
This class was more than just airbrush, it changed my outlook on this whole industry and I was so excited to come home and get going!
I RECOMMEND that if you are a makeup artist or just interested in makeup that YOU take this class.  You will not regret it.
I have to end this with my thank you’s…thank you to Rebecca for waiting to take this class with me…it would not have been the same without you and I had a blast!!!  Thank you to the whole Dinair family, you guys really make that class.  Al and Julie, you make it fun and so interesting!!! And to Dina, thank you for all your advice and answering all our questions.  Thank you for the Price is Right tickets and to give us that experience!  You all are amazing!!!
HUGS…

Ps. Isn't the formulation of Dinair's makeup completely invaluable in and of itself?!?! My skin has cleared up as well! I wish I could find a way to *shout this from the rooftop* to all my fellow "sensitive skin/acne prone" sufferers...Dinair = truly remarkable!!! ;)
