V Magazine’s spread The Body Electric shows us why TEMPTU & TEMPTU PRO is taking the makeup industry by storm!
Makeup artist Lisa Butler transformed model of the moment Jamie Bochert from gothic pale to beach bronzed to wild animal!
TEMPTU makeup makes it easy to mold and bend the realities of our existence. Using the TEMPTU AIR pod highlighters and TEMPTU PRO S/B in a variety of colors and formulas, Lisa Butler and her team created looks with airbrush makeup technology unsurpassed in its abilities.

Each New Year’s at Temptu, we partner with an artist to create a special, limited edition New Year’s tattoo to celebrate one year closing and another beginning. In years past we have worked with Assume Vivid Astro Focus – an installation-based artist collective and Pearl Hsiung - a painter. This year we collaborated with LA-based fashion designer, and branding guru JC Obando for our 2010 tattoo.
Internationally recognized for his couture pieces that have Saudi princesses and Hollywood Starlets and Socialites swooning, JC Obando has also created a name for himself as an award-winning Art Director working with clients that include BMW, Procter and Gamble, and Budweiser among others. Most recently he was nominated for the CFDA / Vogue Fashion fund award.
For the Temptu 2010 New Year’s tattoo – JC curated a meditation on the tattoo, creating a temporary form that is both a riddle and a message – with a legend of Antarctic exploration included.
See if you can figure out the message, and get a glimpse on the nature of the tattoo…

We like to do things with style. For the opening of Temptu L.A. we teamed up with artist Jason Rogenes to design a custom light installation; he will also be drawing designs that we will convert into limited edition Temporary Tattoos.
Jason was recently featured in Surface Magazines Spring Fashion 2008 edition. Check out his website at http://www.rogenes.com (this guy is amazing!)
