Q: Which eyeshadows have good color payoff: Fade vs. Tilt; Parfait Amour vs. Satellite Dreams vs. Beautiful Iris? Do you have any suggestions for blue and purple on the lid?
A: Tilt has good pay off. Satellite dreams I think has the best. Parfait Amour is awful. For a true blue, nothing is better than Freshwater. Purple? MAC has yet to make a fantastic permanent true purple. I love Stars ‘n Rockets, but it’s a magenta purple. Beautiful Iris and Satellite Dreams are your best bets for a purple, as you mentioned.
Q: I am slowly building my collection of MAC (getting quite obsessed with it now!) but only have one pigment pot. I love them but have only recently gained confidence in using them. Please can you recommend a few must-have pigments as staples in my makeup kit that could get me started?
A: Oh, goodness, must-have pigments? I could name you a dozen. I love Fuchsia, Golden Olive, Melon, Pink Opal (excellent cheek highlighter), and Teal. Those are all permanent, readily available pigments at most MAC freestanding stores. You may love Vanilla or Frost, both white-based pigments, too.

Temptalia had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Linsey Snyder, aged 29, who is the president and CEO of Face Time Cosmetics. She runs her own cosmetics line, as well as does side work on television shows, socialites, celebrities, and editorial spreads. She’s been working as an artist since she was “old enough to have makeup of [her] own and [had] friends who wanted makeovers!” Her education has stemmed mostly through learning from magazines as well as classes taught by James Vincent at The Powder Group in New York City.
Linsey, as generous as she is, has donated Beauty In a Box in Stunning ($90 value) for a Temptalia giveaway contest! Enter by leaving commenting on the interview (a real, substantive comment – don’t just say hi!) by 11:59 PST November 2nd. One random, LUCKY winner will be selected November 3rd!
Before you can win, though, you have to read the interview!

How long do you spend doing your makeup? How long does it take you to put on a “full face” of makeup, from start to finish?
It takes me anywhere from fifteen minutes to a half hour, probably, to do everything from face to eyes. If I’m doing a natural look, then I can usually have it done in less than fifteen minutes!
