TEMPTU AIRbrush Makeup : Everything You NEED to Know - Detailed Pictures + Video Tutorial !

I was sent this airbrush system as a promotional item in return for my 100% honest opinion. This is not a sponsored post, meaning I was not paid to create this post or video. 
I have always wanted to try airbrush makeup. I remember as a teen seeing these girls on TV and movies with seemingly perfect skin. I would sped hours at the library researching how they did it, how to do it to my self. More than half the time I found out that their makeup was done using airbrush makeup. However, at that time (late 90's - early 2000) there weren't any companies who offered at home systems or at least none that I knew of. So a few months ago when I saw that there was a brand that offered an affordable at home airbrush makeup set, I knew I had to try it !! 
What you are seeing here is the TEMPTU Signature Starter Kit

The Signature Starter Kit comes with everything you need to get started doing airbrush makeup. The compressor, wand and three color pods. One foundation, one blush and one highlighter. How awesome is it that my AIRcompressor is Pink ?!

The AIRpod shades I am using in this tutorial are :
Foundation : Warm Ivory 003
Highlighter : Bronze
Blush : Hot Pink
Initial set up of the unit is super easy. All I had to do was plug one end of the power cord into wall and the other into the back of the compressor. Then I connected the tubular air hose from the front of the compressor to the wand. And you are done.
Using and switching the pods on and off the wand is also relatively easy. When sliding the pod onto the wand make sure you : A. Pull the black plug out ( and put it back in when you are done so your makeup doesn't dry out ) B. Pump and prime the clear plastic loop. Freeing this latch helps the makeup flow effortlessly through the wand. (See picture diagram above for a visual on these steps.)
It is very important to shake your AIRpods well before each use !

Anatomy of the TEMPTU AIRbrush System 
My very mucky foundation AIRpod tip. To clean this area just wipe an alcohol soaked cotton swap around this area. 

As for the makeup itself, TEMPTU products are oil-free, non-comedogenic, and hypoallergenic. They are also transfer proof, sweat proof and ultimately waterproof.  This system is great for those who attend large events regularly ( this would make for amazing wedding / bridal party makeup !! ) or heck even if you just tired of your makeup siding every where halfway through the day. Once this makeup is applied and set on your face it is not going anywhere! I have gone to wash this off and have needed to go back with makeup remover solution to help lift it all off.One thing to keep in mind is that TEMPTU products do not have any SPF coverage. But they are cruelty free and gluten free company.
While not the most flattering picture of myself. This totally unedited picture shows you just how gorgeous and natural this makeup looks on the skin. Yes you can still see my 3D breakouts but there is no makeup on this planet that can help that. P.S. Looking at my face this close up...Dude I think I am getting some wrinkles !! ahh I blame it on my children since I am only in my 20's haha !!

Final Verdict : I am super impressed with my TEMPTU airbrush system. I really love the formula of this makeup. It just diffuses and almost melts into my skin effortlessly, leaving behind beautiful and even coverage.
