Frequently Asked Questions

Why airbrush?

Airbrushing sprays a fine mist, allowing makeup to sit evenly on the skin. TEMPTU’s Airbrush equipment is developed for the professional makeup artist, providing quick, seamless blending and versatility for photos, HD television, and real life.

Are TEMPTU products oil-free and non-comedogenic?

Yes, TEMPTU foundations are oil-free and all formulas are non-comedogenic.

Do TEMPTU products contain SPF?

TEMPTU products do not offer SPF coverage. Use of an SPF product before applying TEMPTU makeup is recommended.

Is TEMPTU makeup waterproof?

  • S/B products are water and sweat resistant.
  • Dura products are waterproof.
  • Aqua products, which are water based and water activated, are not waterproof.

Do I need to use a primer before applying TEMPTU foundations?

  • Use of a primer depends on the client’s skin type. An S/B Primer prep is recommended for dry or mature skin types as it will provide moisture and allow for a smoother makeup application. If skin is especially dry or mature, combine S/B Primer with S/B Mixing Medium in a 50/50 ratio.
  • Base Smooth & Matte Primer is recommended for oily skin types. Apply a pea sized amount to affected areas only.
  • Both S/B Primer and Base Smooth & Matte should be applied by brush or by hand.

Can I use my traditional makeup such as eye shadows and powders with TEMPTU Airbrush Makeup?

What are the differences between all the TEMPTU formulas?

Can you mix the different formulas?

Mixing Airbrush formulas is not recommended as every formula oxidizes and settles differently on the skin. Uniform uses of formulas will provide more predictable outcomes.

What is Mixing Medium used for?

  • To mix custom colors: Blend Mixing Medium with loose pigments. Note: all pigment particles must be small enough to fit through the airbrush.
  • As a binding agent: Use with S/B concealers for better setting.
  • As a makeup remover: Use it to remove makeup form minor spots.
  • To sheer out colors: Mix with blush and multicolors to soften vivid colors and make them more compatible for fair skin types.

S/B is water-resistant and is formulated for all day wear.

How long does Dura last?
