47

If you’ve ever gazed at photos of celebrities on the red carpet and pined for their perfect skin, you’re not alone. Even with the priciest products on the market, it can be tricky to get the seamless, second-skin finish that we’re all after. Fortunately for us, TEMPTU has changed the game with TEMPTU Air, the cordless airbrush makeup device that puts streak-free skin perfection in everyone’s hands—no Hollywood glam squad required.

Ready to airbrush like the pros? We put together this quick tutorial to teach you how to apply foundation, concealer, blush, contour, bronzer, and highlighter using the TEMPTU Air system and Airpod Makeup. (If you need a basic breakdown of the TEMPTU Air device and its controls, see our Getting Started guide.)

How to apply Airpod Foundation

  1. Insert your shade of Airpod Foundation into the TEMPTU Air.

  2. Tap the power button to set the TEMPTU Air at Speed 2.. We recommend this speed for foundation, blush, bronzer, and contour.

  3. Hold the TEMPTU Air about four fingers (or three inches) from your skin.

  4. Using a very light touch, gently pull back the SoftTouch Control as you move the device in small circular motions over your face.

  5. Check your skin between passes and continue to build up coverage in light layers if needed. We recommend:

    • One to two passes for sheer coverage

    • Two to three passes for medium coverage

    • Three to four passes for full coverage

How to spot conceal with Airpod Foundation

  1. To conceal blemishes, dark spots, or other small imperfections, insert Airpod Foundation into the TEMPTU Air.

  2. Tap the power button to set the TEMPTU Air at Speed 1. We recommend this speed for detail work and targeted areas.

  3. Hold the TEMPTU Air about ½ inch from your skin.

  4. Gently pull back the SoftTouch Control to release a small blast of makeup.

  5. Check your skin between passes and continue to build up coverage in light layers if needed.

How to contour with Airpod Foundation

  1. Select Airpod Foundation that is one or two shades darker than your natural skin tone and insert into the TEMPTU Air.

  2. Tap the power button to set the TEMPTU Air at Speed 2.

  3. Hold the TEMPTU Air about four fingers (or three inches) from your face.

  4. Gently pull back the SoftTouch Control as you move the device along the hollows of the cheeks, sides of the nose, and any other areas you want to define.

  5. Check your skin between passes and continue to build up coverage in light layers as needed.

How to apply bronzer with Airpod Bronzer

  1. Insert Airpod Bronzer into the TEMPTU Air.

  2. Tap the power button to set the TEMPTU Air at Speed 2.

  3. Hold the TEMPTU Air about four fingers from your face.

  4. Gently pull back the SoftTouch Control as you move the device in small circular motions where the sun naturally hits, such as cheekbones, forehead, bridge of the nose, and chin.

  5. Check your skin between passes and continue to build up coverage gradually for the most natural-looking effect.

How to apply Airpod Blush

  1. Insert Airpod Blush into the TEMPTU Air.

  2. Tap the power button to set the TEMPTU Air at Speed 2.

  3. Hold the TEMPTU Air about four fingers from your face.

  4. Gently pull back the SoftTouch Control as you move the device in small circular motions, sweeping from the apple of your cheek to the temple.

  5. Check your skin between passes and continue to build up coverage in light layers until you achieve the perfect color payoff.

How to apply highlighter with Airpod Highlighter

  1. Insert Airpod Highlighter into the TEMPTU Air.

  2. Tap the power button to set the TEMPTU Air at Speed 3. We recommend this setting for highlighter and body makeup.

  3. Hold the TEMPTU Air about two fingers from your skin.

  4. Gently pull back the SoftTouch Control as you move the device over the high points of your face, such as cheekbones and brow bones.

  5. Check your skin between passes and continue to build up coverage in light layers until you achieve the perfect glow.

Avoid a wet, heavy, or uneven finish with these tips

  • Don’t hold the TEMPTU Air too close to your skin. For foundation, blush, bronzer, and contour, we recommend a distance of about three inches.
  • Don’t move the TEMPTU Air in a back-and-forth motion. Small circular motions are best for a smooth, seamless finish.
  • Don’t press too hard on the SoftTouch Control. You only need to pull back very gently.
  • For a more subtle sculpted look, contour and highlight before applying Airpod Foundation.
