Airbrush Cosmetics

PRESS RELEASE


Airbrush makeup is the next generation of makeup. Once developed solely for the TV and film industry to hide skin flaws under dramatic lighting or new technologies like HDTV (High Definition TV), airbrush is ahead of traditional makeup in terms of both effective coverage and feel.
Since airbrush makeup is sprayed on as fine mist over the skin, it produces a natural flawless complexion. It doesn’t rub into the skin or emphasize pores and it allows the skin to breathe through its light texture.
You may have only heard of airbrush from a makeup professional or a bride who spent a steep price on a session for her wedding day. So, when you hear of airbrush make up, you immediately assume that you don’t have the skill to handle it or that it’s going to cost you.
In the past, airbrush systems have been expensive, complicated and hard to find. But now with the GlamBox Airbrush Kit you can easily achieve professional looking coverage and face color every d…

THE ROAD TO THE APPARITION: URBANDUB’S ALBUM LAUNCH

The Sound Of The Giant South is gaining more recognition around the nation like never before. At the forefront of the whole movement is a band with a record that surpasses most bands that have come out of the Queen City of Cebu. They are none other than Urbandub.

Here is the official poster + the official soundtrack - "This is It"
