Happy Sunday!

What’s the best thing you’ve done this weekend (so far)? I spent time with my family this weekend, which is always nice! Today will hopefully be a bit of a lazy/catch-up day for me, which I’m looking forward to.

Temptalia Asks You


Do you change your foundation formula as the seasons change? (Not color, the formula.) Share!

Temptalia's AnswerMy skin is pretty normal and doesn’t seem to get as dry as it used to, so it’s not as necessary to switch between finishes as it used to be, but I still find myself reaching for more luminous/less matte foundations in late winter. In the summer, I tend to look for more satin to semi-matte ones!

What kind of makeup tutorials do you prefer to read/watch? Every day/more minimal looks? Totally avant garde?

Temptalia's AnswerI love watching or reading through tutorials that really focus on a particular technique, makeup style/era, or are totally fun and avant garde. I think technique is very helpful, because you can apply it to what you’re doing, whether that’s subtle makeup or bolder looks.

Do seasonal allergies change your makeup routine? Share! If you have no seasonal allergies… well, you lucky duck ;)

Temptalia's AnswerI used to get really, really bad seasonal allergies when I was younger. When I moved away to SoCal for college, they seemed to go away quite a bit, but when I came home, they would flare up again. I definitely had to take precautions like lighter eyeliners, more waterproof eyeliner/mascara formulas, and sometimes, no eye makeup (thank goodness for a bold lip!).
