How to Clean a Temptu Airbrush Gun

A Full Guide to Disassemble and Reassemble Your Temptu Airbrush Gun

As a makeup artist, wedding season could be crucial. Every bridal party wants airbrush because of the longevity and natural wear. Cleaning your airbrush gun is essential, and here’s my method of how I give my Temptu airbrush gun a deep cleaning.

I like to mention that I no longer purchase cruelty-free makeup, but unfortunately still use the products that remain in my kit. Makeup is expensive and I can’t afford to toss it and buy new makeup. When I need to replace makeup in my kit, I will purchase all cruelty-free products.
