Temptalia Asks You

In what order do you do your beauty routine? Hair before makeup? Makeup before hair? Eyeshadow before foundation? Walk us through your routine!

Temptalia's Answer.

I do hair after make-up, unless I’m doing a lot of blow-drying, then I do 75% before makeup, then just do a little bit at the end. I prefer to do eyeshadow, then foundation, then blush, then setting powder, and finally lips.

Make Up For Ever #148 Eyeshadow

Here are a few more reviews on Make Up For Ever eyeshadows! :)

  • #148 is a shimmery taupe brown with warm golden shimmer. This isn’t a terribly unique shade, but it is pretty and has good color pay off.
  • #4 is a matte dark black. It’s smooth and richly pigmented.
  • #123 is a shimmery golden-olive green shade with slight golden iridescence. It reminded me of MAC’s Golden Olive pigment, actually, with less frost.
  • #57 is a muted lime green shade. It has a satiny finish to it, so it’s not quite matte.

Which of these are your favorites?

Temptalia Asks You

Are you an impulse beauty buyer? Or are you more of a planner?

Temptalia's Answer.

Both — I sort of have an idea of what I want, but I let things sway me when I see them. I’m more impulse than planner when it comes to makeup buying, though.
