Challenge: Felines — Emily, Aracely, Elli, El, Jessica, Etaoin

It was such a pleasure to see all of the different looks and takes on the feline theme of this month’s challenge!  We have subtle and natural to bolder and more dramatic in these first looks.  As always, I post in the order that entries are received.  I will be posting one or two sets per day ’til we’ve showcased all challenge-takers (which is around 30 lovelies!).

Check out the first six looks! Continue reading →

Challenge: Feline-Inspired Makeup

Edited:  Just wanted to bump this up!  Deadline is tomorrow night! :)

Last month’s “No Makeup” Makeup Challenge worked out really well and readers seemed interest in making it a regular part of Temptalia.  This month, the challenge is to create a look that’s feline-inspired–whether that’s a look that simply takes colors from your favorite feline, incorporating patterns, or getting inspiration from words associated with felines (e.g. strong, powerful, independent).   It can be a look you’d wear to the office or an elaborate mask–whatever your interpretation of the challenge is what I want to see.

I’d love to see and share your feline-inspired look with Temptalia readers! The deadline to submit your look is September 15th, 2010, so be sure to send me:

  • at least two (2) high quality images (at least 600px wide, no phone camera pics (!), color accurate, no watermarks)
  • a breakdown of what you used
  • a brief description of what the inspiration was for your look
  • a brief bio about yourself (2-3 sentences), include any website/blog link as necessary

E-mail your feline-inspired look to me by September 15th, 2010, 9PM PST to be included. Don’t be camera shy — we’re a friendly group here at Temptalia! But if you are camera shy, feel free to share your look via the comments (with a text breakdown).

It’s very exciting to see such an amazing turnout!  I loved seeing all of your looks!  I want to make sure every person who submitted (and met the requirements) gets a lil’ Temptalia air time, so I’ve broken submissions into four posts with everybody’s pretty face out in front.  Readers are shown in the order submissions were received.
