BUSTED! 5 AIRBRUSH MAKEUP MYTHS THAT ARE JUST NOT TRUE

Posted on June 19 2024

Airbrush makeup is the perfect fusion of beauty and technology, but along with its innovation comes some common misconceptions about how airbrushing works. Let’s separate fact from fiction by tackling five of the biggest airbrush makeup myths.

 

MYTH #1: AIRBRUSH MAKEUP IS BAD FOR OILY SKIN

"Does airbrush makeup cause acne?" is one of our most frequently asked questions. Fortunately, the answer is no. In fact, airbrushing can actually help prevent future breakouts. At TEMPTU Australia, our makeup is non-comedogenic, suitable for all skin types, and free of parabens, phthalates, and gluten.

Airbrush makeup is a more hygienic choice for oily or acne-prone skin since it doesn’t require traditional brushes and sponges, which can easily harbour allergens and acne-causing bacteria.

Pro Tip: Struggling with acne, scarring, or hyperpigmentation? Our airbrush foundation contains advanced colour-correcting pigments that cover redness and discolouration in an instant. Spot treat any blemishes or dark spots as needed, and then cover them using the TEMPTU Air on Speed 1. For best results, hold the airbrush device 1-2 inches away from your face, and press lightly on the SoftTouch Control until any imperfections disappear.

 

MYTH #2: AIRBRUSH MAKEUP MAKES YOU LOOK OLDER

Fine lines and wrinkles? We’ve got you covered with our SilkSphere technology. This advanced smoothing complex helps minimise the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, imperfections, and pores, leaving you with a youthful, radiant glow and skin that feels smooth, healthy, and hydrated.

 

MYTH #3: AIRBRUSH MAKEUP FEELS HEAVY

The great thing about airbrush makeup is that it’s both weightless and buildable, which means you can customise your level of coverage to suit your needs. With TEMPTU, our three-speed air flow and SoftTouch Control make it easy to adjust the amount of makeup you use.

Pro Tip: Evaluate how your makeup looks between passes until you reach your desired level of coverage. You can apply our airbrush makeup light or heavy, depending on your personal preferences:

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

 

MYTH #4: AIRBRUSH MAKEUP IS MESSY

At TEMPTU Australia, our airbrush guns don’t use propellants or aerosol sprays, so you won’t have to worry about making a mess. Our signature Atomised AirFlow™ Technology delivers pinpoint accuracy for a clean, precise application every time.

Pro Tip: If you wear contact lenses, gently close your eyes while applying airbrush makeup to the face for added comfort.

 

MYTH #5: AIRBRUSH MAKEUP IS DIFFICULT TO APPLY

Under the impression that airbrushing is only for professional makeup artists? Think again! Airbrush makeup may seem tricky and time-consuming, but it’s actually a great way to simplify your everyday routine. Our all-in-one airbrush kits make it easy to address multiple beauty concerns and eliminate the need for brushes, sponges, and other applicators altogether.
