Keep it Simple with Red Lips

December 20, 2010

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!

Angela Kinsey on the Red Carpet

September 3, 2010

The Emmy Awards were this past Sunday, and Angela Kinsey looked gorgeous!

I swear every year gets better and better!

The man that’s in the picture with me below, is Theodore Leaf. Theodore does Angela’s hair and we really make a great team. Teamwork is key to me in the business, and on days like the Emmy’s, I actually prefer to work with the hair stylist at the same time so the look comes to life all at once!

Tip of the week: Concealer: Blend, Blend, Blend!

I am a total blender! Blending is the key to perfect color match! You never want it to be obvious that someone has concealer on.

Here are my steps to flawless skin:

  • First I fill my airbrush with TEMPTU PRO S/B Foundation #004 and #006.
  • Then I spray some of the foundation onto my palette, to mix it with my concealer – this gets me the closest color match possible
  • Next, I apply the concealer where it’s needed and I blend it out to make sure there are no brush strokes (everything shows up on HD!)
  • Once I’m done concealing, I airbrush the foundation
  • To complete the look, I dusted TEMPTU PRO Invisible Difference Powder ONE and perfecto!

Amazing, flawless skin!

Enjoy your Labor Day weekend! Till next week!    Kristina Duff – Guest Blogger and Hollywood Makeup Artist

Tips from the Pros

August 14, 2010



We are thrilled to announce our new Friday from the Field Guest Blogger, Kristina Duff. Kristina is a celebrity makeup artist working in Los Angeles behind the scenes on television, film, photoshoots and red carpet events. Her credits include So You Think You Can Dance, America’s Got Talent, Mad Men, CNN among many many others. Look for her pro tips on Friday’s TEMPTU PRO blog for the next couple of months.

 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!!!!

White Beauty

July 8, 2010

Is it only a coincidence that my horoscope said that white was my color of the week?  Perhaps, but I have always been in awe of  porcelain skin and a flushed cheek and this just happens to be one of my favorite looks created by Erica Carr, a San Francisco based makeup artist working in fashion, TV and print.

A throwback to Colonial and Victorian times, these images conjure that artful playfulness that makeup can bring out in all of us. 

Laura Reynolds, TEMPTU PRO

To achieve the look, Erica airbrushed her entire body with S/B White and accented the cheeks with S/B Blush & Coral.
