3. Q: Can TEMPTU makeup cover body scars?

 A: Our Perfect Canvas Color Correctors are ideal for covering small scars, spider veins or any body imperfections. 

4. Q: Why does my makeup appear wet after application?

A: If your makeup appears wet after application, it’s probably because you are spraying too close. Remember to maintain a 4 to 6 inch distance between the gun and your skin, and to keep your hands moving in small circles for a sheer, even finish.

5. Q: How do I know if my Airpod is expired? 

A: Your Airpod can last up to 2 years, but once opened, we recommend you discard it after 1 year. If the makeup separates, clogs or feels sticky even after shaking it, it may be time to toss it and buy a new one.



1. Q: Why should I use TEMPTU Air and Airpod Makeup instead of regular foundation or makeup?

 A: TEMPTU Air and Airpod makeup delivers instant, effortless skin perfection that lasts. It is the reason that over 50,000 Pros have turned to TEMPTU for over 40 years. Our Atomized AirFlow™ Technology transforms our professional makeup into a micro-fine mist for the most  thorough, even and flawless finish. It also eliminates the need for traditional brushes and sponges. Nothing touches your skin but air and makeup.

Three-speed airflow and SoftTouch Control let you adjust the amount of makeup:  sheer, medium and full coverage, spot conceal, highlight and contour. Always stop and look in between passes until  reaching the desired level of coverage. You want to see perfected skin, not the makeup.

 As a guideline:

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

 3. Q: Can I use it to cover blemishes, dark spots and discolorations?

 A: Yes, spot treat any blemishes, dark spots or areas that need additional coverage before applying TEMPTU Air as foundation. Set the Air on Speed 1 and hold TEMPTU Air 1-2 inches away. Press lightly on the SoftTouch Control and apply until the imperfection disappears.   

4. Q: Can I use TEMPTU Air as my under eye concealer?

 A: You can apply concealer before or after using the Airpod Foundation, however, for best results, we recommend applying it first.

5. Q: Will Airpod Makeup settle in fine lines and wrinkles?

 A: The Atomized Airflow™ Technology transforms our Airpod makeup into a micro-fine mist creating even, skin-perfected coverage that hides everything and is so weightless, it feels like nothing on the skin. This actually helps minimize the appearance of imperfections, pores, fine lines and wrinkles creating a youthful, radiant look, that leaves skin feeling smooth, healthy and hydrated.

10. Q: My skin has a lot of redness/rosacea. Can I use the Airpod Foundation?

 A: Airpod Foundation contains advanced color correcting pigments that instantly cancel out any redness or discoloration. It is extremely hygienic given nothing touches the skin – no fingers, brushes or sponges.

11. Q: Do I need to use sponges or brushes with the Airpod Makeup?

 A: TEMPTU Air and Airpod Makeup simplifies your beauty routine. The all-in-one tool addresses multiple beauty needs, replacing brushes, sponges and countless products. The Airpod Makeup blends instantly – nothing touches your skin but air and makeup.

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).

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 four 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 one to 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.

20.Q: What is the warranty on the TEMPTU Air?

22. Q: How is the TEMPTU Air different from the previous TEMPTU Airbrush Makeup System? 

 A: The TEMPTU Air is a truly portable airbrush makeup device, designed to make the application of airbrush makeup faster and easier than ever before. The TEMPTU Air has been redesigned to eliminate cords and hoses, be powered by a rechargeable battery and a smaller motor and air compressor that fit inside a hand-held device. Also, with the re-design of the SoftTouch Control and a simplified three-speed airflow – the user has control over different makeup applications at their fingertips.

23. Q: Can I use the TEMPTU Air overseas when I am travelling?

 A: Yes, you can use the TEMPTU Air when travelling. To plug it in and recharge the unit overseas, you can insert the USB cord into a locally compliant plug or bring the TEMPTU Air cord and plug but use a plug adaptor to make it compliant in the area where you travel.

 A: At this time, the TEMPTU Air is primarily sold through U.S. based retail partners with limited distribution worldwide except where noted on our Store Locator page here. We are continuing to look at opportunities to expand distribution of the TEMPTU Air internationally.



7. Q: What happens if the airbrush won’t spray?

 A: If your airbrush isn’t spraying evenly or at all, it may because the needle or nozzle (or both) is damaged. Remove the needle from the airbrush gun and run the tip across a piece of tissue.  If it snags on the tissue that means your needle is damaged and must be replaced. To check the nozzle, take off the needle cap and nozzle cap from the front of your airbrush gun. If the nozzle does not feel smooth when you touch it, it might be damaged and would need to be replaced as well.

It’s also possible that the airbrush is dirty. Any makeup buildup would cause the gun to clog and spray unevenly. To clean your airbrush, remove the nozzle with the wrench tool provided with your airbrush gun. Then, using the smallest brush in the airbrush cleaning kit, scrub the passageway that leads to the cup.

8. Q: Why is the TEMPTU Air™ battery not charging?  

A: The battery won’t charge when it is connected to the compressor. To charge the battery, disconnect the battery from the compressor and plug it directly into an outlet using the A/C adapter. If that doesn’t work, email our Customer Care Team at

9. Q: How do I fix the air pressure of my compressor?

A: See if your hose is damaged or clogged. Detach your airbrush gun and hose from the compressor. Put your hand to the air spout and check the air pressure. If it feels normal, then there is either a hole in your hose or it may be clogged. If the air pressure still seems unusually low even when the dial is turned all the way up, then you may have to send your compressor for repair.
