Have you ever had your makeup airbrushed? Do you like a flawless finish foundation that lasts all day? Airbrushing is one of my favorite ways to use foundation when I’m working on makeup jobs. It gives an even, flawless finish, its lightweight so foundation doesn’t look thick or caked on, and it is designed to stay on all day which means I have less touch up work as the day progresses.

How To Use Temptu Air

It only takes 45 seconds to one minute to airbrush your foundation, which means you have more time each morning to enjoy your coffee

I use airbrush foundation on all my brides and wedding parties because it keeps everyone looking gorgeous until the end of the night, no matter how hard they are dancing! Invariably when I am working on weddings or with celebrity clients and they see their beautiful airbrushed faces in the mirror they ask me if I airbrush myself.

The truth is for years no I didn’t, just because I couldn’t be bothered with the hassle of unpacking my professional airbrush system, re-cleaning the airbrush gun and then packing it all away again. I had been meaning to get a Temptu Pod Airbrush System to use at home but didn’t get around to it.

How To Use Temptu Air

Then last year one of my makeup heroes and social media makeup friends (she is a TV/film/commercials makeup artist based in San Diego and I do editorial/celebrity/commercials based out of Phoenix) did a Facebook live session talking about the Temptu Air. She uses hers on her TV clients as well as film, commercials, and on herself. It was so cool watching her airbrush herself and chat away about how she uses hers Temptu Air system in her work that I got online and ordered one for myself as soon as she was done!

Why I Love My Temptu Air

  1. It’s Easy. The TemptuAir is designed for you to use at home. Instead of having multiple parts like the regular professional systems do, this one is just one self-contained unit. It is super simple to use.
  2. The foundation is lovely. When I first tried mine I wasn’t sure if it was working properly – the foundation mist was so fine I couldn’t see it going on. I did half of my face and then saw that I was one side flawless and the other side just regular old me! The foundation is so highly pigmented that it only needs a tiny amount to give you flawless coverage while still looking really sheer.
  3. There is no cleanup. There is no airbrush gun with the Temptu system. A normal airbrush system has a gun that requires fanatic cleaning as soon as you have completed airbrushing. This is time consuming and if you don’t get it 100% perfect then your gun will clog up and jam. It’s actually quite a hassle.

The TemptuAir uses preloaded foundation pods instead of a gun, so you don’t have any cleaning. You can change out the foundation colors as your skin changes color throughout the year by using different color pods. Or if there is more than one person using it you can simply change out the foundation pod. It is just so incredibly functional and easy!

    1. It is really fast. I just timed myself applying my foundation with the Temptu Air system and it took me 45 seconds. Isn’t that crazy? 45 seconds to get a flawless finish foundation that looks like fresh skin. I’m loving it!
    2. It’s not thick. I really dislike heavy, caked on foundation. If you have been reading this blog for a while then you already know that I like healthy, glowing skin. Or at least the illusion of healthy skin. Thick foundation is in my opinion ugly. It hides the girl underneath. The pod foundations mist on so fine that you almost think there is no foundation on. It’s beautiful.
    3. You don’t need powder. Most foundations require powder to set them and make them stay on. With this foundation most of the time I can get away with no powder because the foundation sets by itself. If, or when you do need to powder it to set it you need very little powder, which again makes your skin look fresh and lovely.

The Temptu Air system comes as one handheld unit. Nice and easy. You just plug it in and charge it, the initial charge takes a couple of hours, then from there it is only as needed.

The compressor has three controllable speeds to mist your foundation on with, so you don’t need to worry about it getting overpowered and blasting makeup all over your face.

 

Airbrushing with one of these systems is a breeze too. You don’t have to change the PSI or try to get it just right – the system does it by itself. You will feel a mist of air when you turn your pod system on, and you can either guide it by feel or watch it as you mist foundation over your face.

Once your system has charged you need to insert the pod.

Start by shaking the pod to keep the foundation mixed, then separate the cover from the pod.

How To Use Temptu Air

The rubberized ball on the left is the plug you need to open before inserting the pod into your Temptu Air

There is a small rubber plug at the back of the pod which you need to open.

How To Use Temptu Air

Press the pod release button on the handheld unit and slide the pod in. It’s so simple!

The pod release button is next to my thumb.

The power button turns on the system but also adjusts the speed.

When you have finished airbrushing release the pod, plug the rubber stopper back in, and use the foam inside the pod cap to clean the nozzle.

How To Use Temptu Air

With any airbrush foundation you need to make sure you are well moisturized before you start. I moisturize, apply facial SPF and then prime my skin the same way I do with any foundation.

I don’t bother concealing my skin or under my eyes when I use my airbrush. The foundation is so concentrated and so beautifully pigmented that it disappears any darkness under my eyes. When you first use your try it without concealing first, as you may find you can skip that makeup step.

Eyeliner, mascara and lips. With the Temptu Air you don’t need much else

You can also buy Temptu pods for blush and for bronzer. At the time of writing this post I haven’t used them but I do know plenty of people who have. If you are going to use the blush and bronzer pod options you would just release the foundation pod and slip in the blush pod and create your cheeks before powdering. It is super simple and efficient.

The Temptu Air system is a really fabulous addition to your makeup routine. It is so quick to use and the finish is so lovely – you can’t go wrong. Any of you who hate rushing in the mornings will LOVE how much time it saves you! You will even have time for an extra cup of coffee in the morning …

Milk Blur Stick

Have you tried the Milk Makeup Blur Sticks? Do you want to create a smooth, matte finish to your makeup while minimizing your pores? I think that is pretty much all of us, right? I’m pretty excited about these products and you to know about them too.

Last week I was honored to be one of 10 bloggers invited to a Bubbly and Brunch business event that was sponsored by Sephora. I love mimosas, I love getting to meet other bloggers and I love getting a big gift bag from Sephora!

The event itself gives brands a chance to meet one on one with bloggers, make some connections, and see if you might be a good fit for some business collaborations. I love getting to meet people face to face, and frankly I just love chatting with everyone!

Anyway, this is not a sponsored post, but I wanted to tell you about these Milk Makeup Blur Sticks that were in my gift bag from Sephora.

I hadn’t actually tried these prior to last week, but I think they are pretty fabulous. Blur sticks can either be used as a pre makeup mattifier, to prep the skin and get it ready for makeup, or you can wear it alone on bare skin.

What Is A Blur Stick?

I received both the original Blur Stick and the Luminous Blur Stick.

Milk Blur Sticks

The Original Blur Stick acts like the best selfie filter you have ever used. It minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines and imperfections with its blurring microsphere technology. When used to prep the skin under makeup the Blur Stick makes foundation glide on smoothly and leaves you with a matte finish.

Milk Blur Stick

If you tend to get shiny, or if your forehead seems to look shiny in photos (mine always does!) you will love this. Blurring technology diffuses light and stops it from bouncing off your face, giving you that lovely filtered look. Unlike other mattifiers it gives your skin a soft finish rather than a dried out, dead matte look. You skin still looks alive.

I like it under makeup but I also like it on its own. I have good skin, but without makeup on it often looks shiny. Today I am wearing the Blur Stick by itself and it not only makes my skin look nice (and not shiny) but it also doesn’t feel like there is anything on my skin. I love it!

The other Blur Stick I received was the Luminous Blur Stick.

Milk Luminous Blur Stick

The Luminous Blur Stick works like the original to filter your skin, minimize fine lines and pores, but it has a golden pearl infusion that makes the skin glow. As the warmer months approach and we start seeing more skin again the Luminous Blur Stick is a lovely way to highlight your shoulders and collar bones and make the skin look radiant.

If you have a combination skin you can mattify your T zone with the original Blur Stick and add some glow to your cheeks with the Luminous Blur Stick.

If you are getting married the original Blur Stick is a fantastic pre makeup product to keep your skin looking soft filtered!

How Do You Use A Blur Stick?

Blur Sticks are really easy to use. Once your skin care has soaked in you literally just draw the blur stick across your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin and then buff it out with a duo fiber brush, a makeup sponge, or your fingers! This product is designed to be like a veil over your skin, so keep your application sheer.

Milk Blur Stick

If you have dry skin make sure you moisturize well before using your Blur Stick. If you make dry skin look more matte it can end up making it look even drier. If you are well moisturized before using your Blur Stick you will achieve that gorgeous soft focus finish.

If your skin has a rough surface be sure to exfoliate it first.

Some other interesting things about the Milk Blur Sticks:

Both types of Blur Stick are oil free and silicone free. I actually use silicone based foundations, so cosmetic silicones don’t bother me, but I know that they do bother some people.

The Luminous Blur Stick is also Vegan, Cruelty free and Gluten free.

The Original Blur Stick is also Vegan, Cruelty free, and Gluten free, but is Talc free, Soy free and non comedogenic too.

Temptu

In my regular day job, makeup artist, I airbrush clients all the time, especially all my weddings.

Clients are always asking me about getting an airbrush system to use on themselves at home, but most professional airbrush systems are too expensive, or are a little bit overkill for someone to have for personal use in their home.

That’s where the Temptu comes in.

temptu air system

Temptu makes a personalized airbrush system that utilizes pods of foundation. The pod system cancels out the hassles of having to clean an airbrush gun immediately after use, making airbrushing yourself (or anyone else) a much more user-friendly experience.

These systems are really cool! Check out the video below:
