One recurring theme in this month’s Ask Temptalia Session was all about foundation — what’s best for what skin, how to choose the right shade, how to know what kind of undertones you have, and so on and so forth. This is pretty much everything I know about foundation, and hopefully, you’ll add your own tips and tricks in the comments to make this a great resource for the future! 🙂 (You know, I fully intended for this to be a short and sweet post, but you know what they say about plans!)
Choosing foundation can be a difficult, trying, and frustrating process because everyone’s skin varies just a little bit from person to person so what works for one might not work for another–and for a whole variety of reasons–from undertones to skin types to skin concerns to personal preferences.
Undertones, shopping for foundation, tips & tricks ahead!
After reading your answers to today’s question: how do you organize your eyeshadows? I really think we need to come together and SHOW OFF. (OK, you do it, I’m still in desperate need of a depotting party!) Share your wickedly detailed spreadsheets, photos of your ultra-organized eyeshadows, bask in the awesomeness that is organized beauty!
Share your photos/spreadsheet either by linking to the image/file or you can email me directly at [email protected], and I’ll upload it and include it in the post! 🙂
My collection/stash can be found under Temptalia’s Collection. It was last updated about June 2009, I believe, so I’m about due for another update, but gotta depot first! 🙂
See readers’ storage solutions for their eyeshadows!
I’m taking your questions and answering them today. You can feel free to ask any question you’d like, beauty-related or unrelated. Feel free to answer other readers’ questions, too 🙂 The more the merrier!
