Carrie Underwood Wears TEMPTU on her Wedding Day

July 22, 2010



In the fairytale wedding that trumps all, Carrie Underwood wed Canadian hockey player, Mike Fisher, last weekend at the Ritz Carlton in Atlanta, GA. To beat the heat and humidity, Carrie’s makeup artist, Melissa Schleicher chose to use the TEMPTU AIRbrush Makeup System. Here’s what Melissa has to say about TEMPTU:

TEMPTU Airbrush Makeup helped Carrie survive the 100 degree Atlanta heat and humidity during her wedding, her makeup was flawless from beginning to end.  I love TEMPTU airbrush makeup because not only does it look beautiful in person but also in pictures, and no need for touch-ups on the photos. And now, airbrushing is not just for the pros like myself, but now anyone can go to Sephora and start airbrushing.”

So what are you waiting for?  Go to or and start airbrushing today!

Icons: Goodnight, Malcolm.

April 9, 2010

Yesterday came the news that Malcolm McLaren passed away.  The obits have come fast and furious, and their range of sources – from MTV to WWD to The New York Times – showcase the many worlds his dynamism touched. 

Malcolm is best known for masterminding and managing the Sex Pistols, but he was also a musician, artist, fashion designer, businessman, producer, and all-around cultural icon.  As one of the godfathers of the British punk movement, his impact on popular culture to this day cannot be underestimated, and he was a style icon through-and-through: From his personal and professional partnership with Vivienne Westwood  that bore their King’s Road shop “Sex,” the infamous Sex Pistols, and a storied design career for Westwood (not to mention two sons) to his role managing the legendary New York Dolls, New Wavers Adam and the Ants (my childhood crush) and Bow Wow Wow (Annabella!) to all of the creative and entrepreneurial endeavors he dabbled in his next incarnations.

McLaren saw art – in all its many forms – as the perfect outlet to communicate, provoke, titillate, antagonize, and yes, sell.  Perhaps most of all, McLaren was a showman.  This weekend, let’s turn up the volume in his honor.
