Busted! 5 Airbrush Makeup Myths That Are Just Not True

Airbrush makeup is the perfect fusion of beauty and technology, but along with its innovation comes some common misconceptions about how airbrushing works. We’re separating fact from fiction by tackling five of the biggest airbrush makeup myths.

Myth #1: Airbrush makeup is bad for oily skin.

Does airbrush makeup cause acne?” is one of our most frequently asked questions. Fortunately, the answer is no; in fact, airbrushing can actually help prevent future breakouts. At TEMPTU, our makeup is non-comedogenic, suitable for all skin types, and free of parabens, phthalates and gluten.

Airbrush makeup is a more hygienic choice for oily or acne-prone skin types in general since it doesn’t require traditional brushes and sponges (which can easily harbor allergens and acne-causing bacteria).

Pro Tip: Struggling with acne, scarring or hyperpigmentation? Our airbrush foundation contains advanced color-correcting pigments that cover redness and discoloration in an instant. Just spot treat any blemishes or dark spots as needed, and then cover them using the TEMPTU Air on Speed 1. For best results, hold the airbrush device 1-2 inches away from your face, and press lightly on the SoftTouch Control until any imperfections disappear.

Myth #2: Airbrush makeup makes you look older.

Fine lines and wrinkles? We’ve got you covered with our SilkSphere technology. This advanced smoothing complex actually helps minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, imperfections and pores, leaving you with a youthful, radiant glow and skin that feels smooth, healthy and hydrated.

Myth #3: Airbrush makeup feels heavy.

The great thing about airbrush makeup is that it’s both weightless and buildable, which means you can customize your level of coverage to suit your needs. With TEMPTU, our three-speed air flow and SoftTouch Control help make it easy to adjust the amount of makeup you use.

Pro Tip: In general, we recommend evaluating how your makeup looks between passes until you reach your desired level of coverage. Ultimately, you can apply our airbrush makeup heavy-handed or light depending on your personal preferences.

  • 1-2 passes for sheer coverage
  • 3-4 passes for medium coverage
  • 4-5 passes for full coverage

Myth #4: Airbrush makeup is messy.

At TEMPTU, our airbrush guns don’t use propellants or aerosol sprays, which means you won’t have to worry about making a mess. Our signature Atomized AirFlow™ Technology delivers pinpoint accuracy for a clean, precise application every time.

Pro Tip: If you happen to wear contact lenses, we recommend gently closing your eyes while applying airbrush makeup to the face.

Myth #5: Airbrush makeup is difficult to apply.

Under the impression that airbrushing is only for professional makeup artists? Think again! Airbrush makeup may seem tricky and time consuming, but it’s actually a great way to simplify your everyday routine. Our all-in-one airbrush kits make it easy to address multiple beauty concerns, and they eliminate the need for brushes, sponges and other applicators altogether.
