Fionagh Cush, makeup designer for the Spring’s biggest blockbuster Beautiful Creatures sat down with TEMPTU to talk beginnings, beauty and behind the scenes on Beautiful Creatures.
I started at BBC’s Greasepaint School, anyone that’s anyone in the UK went to this school. I knew at a very young age, makeup was the only thing I was interested in. After moving to London it was difficult to find a job, so I bopped around doing a lot of free work and theatre. On a whim, I applied to get a lottery visa to the United States, I’m Irish, and by the luck of the Irish, I won the Irish Lottery! My next stop was Hollywood!
I had airbrushed prosthetics but never really used airbrush makeup for beauty.
I actually started airbrushing beauty makeup with TEMPTU, it was the first time
I felt there was an airbrush makeup formula that came close to the prestige makeup brand foundations that I was using. I used it on NBC’s Perfect Couples on the female leads Olivia Munn (006 & 007), Christine Woods (003 & 004), and Mary Elizabeth Ellis (003). I haven’t bought any other foundation since.
#1 – Incredible, unbeatable staying power – we shot Beautiful Creatures in the swamps of New Orleans in extreme humidity and the TEMPTU airbrush foundation did not move all day, with minimal touch-ups, it always looked flawless.
#2 – It is amazing for hi-definition any form, it’s flawless.
#3 – Cuts down the time it takes to do makeup, in ½ a minute I can do a full foundation face, where with traditional makeup it used to take me 10 minutes!
I always airbrush the TEMPTU blushes before I airbrush the foundation, it is the PERFECT way to achieve an inner, radiant flush that is ideal for the no makeup makeup look, natural and fresh. This was the technique I used to achieve the gorgeous beauty looks in Beautiful Creatures for the natural and innocent Lena played by Alice Englert, and the darker character Ridley, Emmy Rossum’s character.
First off - the TEMPTU AIRbrush Makeup System, it's amazing – every woman needs to have one!
AIRpod Foundation 004 for women – it is my most versatile foundation color.
AIRpod Foundation 007 for men, they like to be tan!
And I love the AIRpod Blushes Washed Rose, Soft Peach and Peony Pink.
They are natural, healthy looking, and versatile, perfect for a period look as well as a no makeup, natural makeup look.
