Temptalia Asks You

Do you like matte finishes in beauty products? Eyeshadow, lipstick, nails… tell me!

Temptalia's Answer.

I do and I don’t. Sometimes mattes are harder to work with, and I always feel a little unfinished without a glossy coat on my lips. I like mattes *most* on eyes, because I like them in the crease or for a more subtle look.

Holiday Makeup Ideas, Part IV

Gilded gold and forest green is always a good pairing, but it’s also completely festive! The rich evergreen in the pine trees… totally something key to winter/holidays.

Emerald green and gold is a bolder, brighter take on the green and gold pairing for the winter and holiday seasons. This is probably one of my all-time favorite looks that I’ve done!

Classic smoky eyes are never a bad way to go when you have a party or special occasion to attend!  You can always add your own twist by making it bluer, grayer, smokier… whatever!  I like to pair it with a golden-glossed nude lip.

Temptalia Asks You

Do you like to wear glitter? Whether it’s on your nails, hair, eyes, or lips… Where do you like it? Where do you not?

Temptalia's Answer.

I love glitter, period. It’s fun! I’d love to see more eye-safe glitters, but I do prefer wearing glitter on my nails or in lipgloss.

Maybelline Eye Studio for Spring 2010: Natural & Baked

According to WWD, it looks like Maybelline’s spring launches are going to be driven around the idea of being “natural.” Maybelline Eye Studio will include quads with “wet technology” and baked marbleized eyeshadows. I’m curious about what exactly “wet technology” means (are they like Kryolan’s Aqua Colors?) and of course, how the baked eyeshadows stack up against MAC.

What do you think? Will you be stalking the aisles for these?
