12. Q: My Airpod is not spraying. What should I do?

 A: Make sure the tamper seal has been removed from the front of the Airpod. Try disconnecting the Airpod from the Air and checking that the black plug on the back of the Airpod is open.  Also firmly pull back on the Clear Loop.  For Airpods to work most effectively, occasionally “refresh” your pod (refer to the “Getting Started” video for details on prepping your Airpod). For extra support, call TEMPTU customer care 1-888-983-6788.

13. Q: How do you control the amount of makeup spraying from the Airpod?

 A: The SoftTouch control regulates the amount of makeup that is released from the Airpod. With TEMPTU, less is always more. When applying to the face, press lightly on the SoftTouch Control for best results. If you press harder, more makeup will be released. This is only  recommended for use on large areas of the body.

14. Q: My makeup appears wet and isn’t drying quickly. My makeup appears blotchy or heavier in some spots. Is there something wrong with the Air or the Airpod Makeup?

 A: You may be over-applying the makeup by coming in too close or moving in a back and forth motion. The key to airbrushing is:

  • Remain about 4 fingers length distance from the face
  • Keep the Airbrush moving in small, circular motions for a seamlessly blended application
  • For the face, press the SoftTouch Control lightly, only press down harder for large areas or application to the body

15. Q: Will this product get on my clothes or in my eyes?

 A: This is not an aerosol spray.  No propellants are used with TEMPTU Air so it will not spray in a large cloud. Instead, our Atomized AirFlow™ Technology delivers pinpoint accuracy when closer to the eye area. If you wear contact lenses, gently close eyes and feel the airflow, use it  as your guide for where the makeup is being applied.

16. Q: How long does the TEMPTU Air battery last?  How often does it need to be charged?

 A: The TEMPTU Air has a rechargeable long-life battery. It does not need to be charged daily, but can be with the included USB cord.

17. Q: Can I use the TEMPTU Air while it is charging?

 A: Yes, you can use the TEMPTU Air while it is charging.

18. Q: How long does an Airpod last?

 A: It depends on frequency and amount of usage, but your Airpod Foundation will on average give you three months of daily use while Airpod Blush and Highlighter typically last longer. We recommend using within 18 months of opening. You may need to re-activate it if you do not  use it for several weeks.

19. Q: How do I clean the TEMPTU Air? 

 A: Do not apply water or submerge in water. Use a damp cloth to wipe the unit.

7. Q: The airbrush compressor is on but it’s not spraying?

 A: Try removing the Airpod from the gun, and check the short black rubber tube in front for damage. If that appears intact, check the hose that connects the gun to the compressor— it may be ripped, torn or punctured. Email our Customer Care Team at customercare@temptu.com or give us a call at 1-888-983-6788 Monday - Friday 7:00am - 5:30pm PST to learn how you can get a replacement.

8. Q: My Airpod is not dispensing makeup?

 A. If your Airpod is not working or is spraying inconsistently, there may be some built-up air pressure inside it. Gently pull the clear loop (located next to the black plug) on the pod several times to loosen it up and release the pressure. You can also check if the nozzle of the pod is clean and free of any makeup residue. Check out this Pod Love page for more information about how to take care of your Airpods.
