Fionagh Cush for TEMPTU and Beautiful Creatures

Spring’s biggest blockbuster Beautiful Creatures hit cinemas today, and leading the way behind the scenes was renowned Hollywood makeup artist Fionagh Cush. With years of experience working on some of Hollywood’s biggest sets, Cush knows a thing or two when it comes to makeup for the stars. On set in the extreme humid conditions of the swamps in New Orleans, Cush created two absolutely enchanting looks, and do you know what she used? TEMPTU! That’s right, using the versatile TEMPTU AIR Pod Makeup, Cush transformed Beautiful Creatures main character Lena, played by Alice Englert.



The soft, everyday look was created to capture the youthful innocence of Beautiful Creatures main character, Lena. Fionagh Cush describes it as “naturally flawless and confident.” For her second look, Cush created a dramatic, mystical look for Lena. The result is dewy-eyed and romantic — ideal for a “beautiful creature.”

With its Incredible, unbeatable staying power, the TEMPTU Air Pod Foundation never left Cush’s side on set. With minimal touch-ups, TEMPTU always provided a flawless look. Plus, Cush makes specific note that TEMPTU cuts down the time it takes to do makeup dramatically. “In ½ a minute I can do a full foundation face, where with traditional makeup it used to take me 10 minutes!”
