Airbrushing removes this problem by giving far better coverage and results, compared to what can …

The skin was prepped by gentle exfoliation, and moisturizing it heavily before using their signature airbrush foundation.
The hair, done by Philip Pelusi, was beautifully imperfect. “It’s a bit of a beachcombed look. We used dry shampoo to get the hairdo, and ensured there was no crunchiness to the …
American Idol winner, with a platinum-album voice Carrie Underwood has certainly proved that blondes can have more fun — both on and off stage. Her recent news, however, had nothing to do with her often loud, commanding and gilded vocal chords, but was more focused on her tying the knot in her Southern American element.
