Ask JP: Water-Based vs. Silicone-Based Airbrush Makeup

December 3, 2010  |  NEW AT TEMPTU

On this episode of Ask JP, we answer a question from Nora via Facebook about the differences between water-based and silicone-based airbrush makeup.  JP also shares with us the numerous benefits of TEMPTU’s specially designed silicone formula.


  1. I am airbrushing the mother of the bride for an outside, 90 degree weather. OUCH I am going to use my Temptu airbrush system. Not the pods. Should I prime her face first? Maybe with a pore minimizer, or smashbox, etc. If so what do you recommend. Do you conceal first? You could recommend a waterproof eyeliner, makeup forever for example.

    • You should definitely prime her face with a silicone based primer. We have one on our shop site: http://shop.temptupro.com/p-135-sb-primer.aspx . Concealing first is always a good idea, you may need to use an adjuster to cancel out any redness or discoloration. Sephora carries a lot of waterproof eyeliner options. It really depends on what you are looking for in a product and what brands you prefer.
