How To Airbrush Makeup If You're Not A Makeup Artist (It's Actually Really Easy)

For the uninitiated, the Temptu is an at-home airbrush system that gives you the perfectly contoured face of Kim Kardashian. No, for real. I first heard about the Temptu a few months ago from the beauty-obsessed SHEfinds staffers. They still talk about it to this day, and one even went out and bought the machine for herself. Now, I will admit, I am not someone who knows a ton about makeup, but that’s why I was so intrigued by the Temptu. Like, how could real girls use this device and get the same results as a makeup artist? Well, it is possible, and we’re here to show you how.

Everything from assembling the system to applying the makeup is not as difficult as it seems. You can actually go through the entire process pretty quickly. Shelby, our graphic designer and resident Temptu expert, put together all four parts seamlessly, and no, it’s not because she watches tutorials on the reg. The pieces go together like a puzzle: connect the AIRcompressor (the box thing) to the AIRbrush Cradle (the brush holder), put an AIRpod(the makeup) in the AIRbrush (the pointer) and simply combine the two by placing the AIRbrush in the AIRbrush cradle. Easy! Now, I will let Shelby and our marketing intern/model, Christina, take it from here with the whole applying makeup thing. Watch them demonstrate how to use the Temptu in the video below:
