Tattoo Coverage Tips from the Pros

November 29, 2010

Here are TEMPTU PRO’s  Top 5 Tattoo Coverage Tips:

1.  Make sure you use complimentary colors when covering tattoos.  For example: Coral Adjuster #320 color covers black and blue inks, Red Adjuster #322 covers green inks, Olive Adjuster #321 covers red inks, etc.  A great way to save money and get all these colors together is to purchase our Dura Pro Palette in Skinlight.

2. Brush size matters.  Use wider bristled synthetic brushes to cover large areas of the tattoo, and smaller brushes to cover more detailed areas.

3.  When covering a tattoo using a Dura Pro Palette, use a generous amount of 99% alcohol to create a wash of coverage.  This process will cancel out the brightness of the tattoo.

4.  Use a alcohol based makeup, like our Dura formula, to complete your tattoo coverage.  Our Total Skin Dura Starter Set is ideal for this and offers a complete spectrum of foundation color combinations.

5.  To achieve a more natural skin finish, you may put a layer of S/B Foundation on top for a flawless finish.

We’ve had a lot of fans ask for tips on applying makeup to mature skin.  We turned to our resident TEMPTU PRO makeup artists Shannon and Adrian for their top 10 Makeup Musts for Mature Skin.

Pro Tip of the Week

August 20, 2010

Kristina Duff touching up Courtney Hansen

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.
