Temptalia Asks You


Has your beauty routine changed as you’ve gotten older? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI’m more concerned with texture – can’t get away with some of the high-shine, metallic-y textures on the skin as much as I used to. Sometimes I don’t care, because it’s pretty and the only one I’m trying to make happy with makeup is me, but I definitely appreciate a really flattering texture more now than I used to.

Happy Sunday!

How has your weekend been treating you thus far?  My husband and I had our date night last night, which is quite low key: we have a nicer dinner out and avoid checking our phones, ha!  I also reorganized my makeup bathroom a bit more and separated my brushes out by type/shape so I can find them better while doing my makeup.

Temptalia Asks You


What lighting do you prefer for applying makeup? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI like really bright lights, and preferably, ones that aren’t hot! I love the brightness of the lights I have now, but they’re SO hot that I feel like I’ll sweat all my makeup off before I’m done sometimes!
