Temptalia Asks You

What was your last beauty/makeup faux pas? Did your foundation mis-match? Bold eyes and bold lips? (Hey, no one said you had to care that you made a “faux pas”!)

Temptalia's Answer.

Probably foundation that wasn’t quite matching, as I spent quite a bit of timing trying out a bunch of different shades in various lighting to determine the best one!

Photo-taking Tips

    out
  • Macro mode for close-up photography is key
  • Try layering a tissue over your flash if photos are overexposed
  • Stand near a window for softer, more flattering light
  • Use a tripod to keep photos sharp if your camera has shutterlag
