#8 of TEMPTU PRO’s Top 10 of 2010 Countdown!

December 24, 2010

NBC’s The Office is easily one of television’s most loved TV shows, so adding Angela Kinsey’s Emmy makeup to our list was a no-brainer.  #8 Makeup Artist Kristina Duff uses TEMPTU PRO’s S/B airbrush makeup on Angela Kinsey for the 2010 Emmy Awards.  2010 was Kristina Duff’s 4th year airbrushing the actress for the Emmys, and, in our opinion, was by far one of the prettiest looks on the red carpet.  Click HERE to find out how Duff created Angela Kinsey’s flawless complexion.

Check out this fun pic of Elle Johnson that I took earlier this year!

Ellen Johnson is an amazing TV writer who is currently working on The Glades and other cool upcoming shows. I had the pleasure of meeting her while I was working on the TV show, Saving Grace. Elle decided that it was time for her to update her publicity pictures…so that’s exactly what we did!

Never Say Goodbye to Summer

September 10, 2010

Summer is coming to an end so quickly! What to do about keeping that sunkissed look year round without the sun filled days?

Here is a great way to add a bronzed glow to any client! 

  1. Airbrush correct S/B Foundation shade to the face
  2. Mix S/B Foundation #009 and a tiny drop of S/B Adjuster in Violet
  3. Lightly spray onto your client’s skin, focusing on the outer edges of the cheeks, forehead and a little across the nose, where sunlight naturally highlights the face

*This color is especially great for warming up the edges on your males clients, creating a little depth without the look of makeup or too much powder.

Enjoy the last bit of summer 2010!

Pro Tip of the Week

August 20, 2010

Wow, it’s been a busy week! A 2 day photo shoot in Death Valley was intense with 120 degree heat, but working in the hot CA sun was a no-sweat job, thanks to my TEMPTU PRO S/B makeup!

 This week’s tip:

 How to pull off multiple looks with limited time without starting fresh.

1.  Remove the makeup from the eye area with a makeup remover wipe (followed by a cotton pad with water to rid the skin of any remover residue)

 2.  Airbrush the base back on and blend back into the 1st layer of foundation.

 3.  It’s been my experience with other foundations that they don’t blend and the line is apparent similar to that if you chip you nail polish and try to fill it back in. TEMPTU PRO S/B Foundation is easier to blend, even if it is already set!!

 4.  Tap a little S/B Mixing Medium into the base that has already set if you want some extra blending room. Viola-the base is set and you’re ready to do your next look!

Enjoy these Summer days and don’t forget your SPF! Oh, if you weren’t sure, sun block should be applied between the moisturizer and the primer. Wait a few minutes for the SPF to set in and then apply your TEMPTU PRO S/B Primer, followed by TEMPTU PRO S/B Foundation of course.

Tips from the Pros

August 14, 2010

Kristina is a celebrity makeup artist working in Los Angeles behind the scenes on television, film, photoshoots and red carpet events.

 Read on for her inaugural blog… 

Kristina Duff & Lauren G

Working on So You Think You Can Dance, Season 7, was both an honor and a pleasure!!!

Under the department head Amy Strozzi, I was able to put my talents to use on some pretty amazing faces!

TEMPTU PRO S/B is the only foundation I have in my kit. I generally airbrush on all my gigs, but sometimes I play around with other techniques. 

Have you ever just brushed on the S/B foundation??? Well that’s what I did here, for Lauren G of the All Star Team. I applied her makeup 6 hours prior to when this photo was taken…

If you ever find yourself in a pinch without a compressor or perhaps working a gig where they prefer you to use traditional makeup application techniques (or if the director specifically asks you to use something really sheer….brushing on the S/B formula will give you a BEAUTIFUL result! You can lightly apply for sheer or add layers for a full, yet skin like coverage.

I started with prepping her skin….toner, eye cream, moisturizer…and PRIMER (don’t forget your TEMPTU PRO S/B Primer)!! Then I went to town with S/B foundation #6 on a palette and a brush in my hand.

VIOLA!!!! Enjoy this new tip and have a FABULOUS FRIDAY!!!!
