It’s always gratifying to witness the innovative growth of a makeup brand formally geared towards Pros…morph into a consumer powerhouse brand.
We got to see the Temptu team in action, applying polished touches to the models at accessories designer Devi Kroell’s debut RTW collection during NY’s Fashion Week Spring ’09.
Led by makeup artist, Lisa Butler–Temptu’s served up impeccable visages courtesy of their airbrush system that we only wish we could self apply.
For those not in the know-airbrush makeup is applied via fine, colored mists-through a airbrush wand device- that somewhat resembles the airbrush machines that are used for commercial applications. Foundations, eye makeup and brows (with the cool Airbrow kit) can be perfectly ‘applied’ this way.
The results are long lasting, and frankly, flawless. No wonder airbrush everything has really taken off in the age of HD Television.
To complete the look of modern sophistication, a liquid black eyeliner was applied around the eyes, with a glossy lip as the finishing touch.
