Temptalia Asks You

Do you use toner in your routine? Do you think it’s necessary? What toner do you use (if you use one)?

If you were using MAC’s Dainty Mineralize Blush?, what look would you create with it? What shadows would you use? What would you use on cheeks? Anything added to the lips?

Create a look using whatever you want, as long as you include Dainty! Feel free to share links to photos of your look(s) using it in the comments.

Fashion Week kicks off this Friday, September 5th, 2008 — how excited are you? In February, Temptalia was there for a couple of days in person, but this year, we’ll be remote bloggin’ it. There’s been an increase in access to the shows for those not in attendance, and it looks like MAC wants to bring backstage to your e-doorstep!

MAC Cosmetics plan to capitalize on consumers’ rising, and many say reality TV-induced, interest in fashion and their curiosity about the shows behind the scenes. For the first time in the 15 years it has sponsored Fashion Week is exposing the backstage goings-on at New York, London, Milan, and Paris shows via Twitter.

Through a Facebook widget set to launch sometime next week, fans will be able to access tweets from individual pro-team MAC artists who will have to do a minimum of 15 tweets per day.

The initiative supports the branch’s strategy to use alternative media to gain awareness and get new fans, many of whom are active in social networks, explains Laura Elkins, VP of global consumer marketing and artist relations. She adds that it also supports MAC’s “heritage in fashion.”

“We want to engage fashion fans, beauty junkies, and loyalists. [Backstage] is not accessible to them usually,” says Evans. “It’s a great way for them to connect with our senior artists.”

The team will feature the Twitter initiative on its Facebook group and, working with Paul Wilmot Communications, promote the initiative via outreach to fashion and beauty bloggers and online magazines. — Source

Is it something you’re interested in? Will you be watching the widget? I know I’ll be totally amazed at the artists being able to manage twitter while working. Backstage is crazy-insane, always rushed, and just all around chaotic. It’s hard to imagine an artist having a free moment (or hand, for that matter) to “tweet.” (My twitter page!)
