What are your best tips and tricks for making your makeup pop when wearing glasses? Share your tips!

Temptalia's AnswerIt’s not an area of expertise for me as I’ve never had to wear glasses regularly, and I no longer need them, but a few key tips I have: 1) keep your glasses around and put them on and take them off as you’re doing your makeup, so you can find the best shapes/see how it’ll look once you put glasses on; 2) eyebrows and eyeliner really help to frame and define the eye area. Hopefully those who wear glasses more regularly can share some of their tried and true tips :)

What’s the best way to start wearing bright or bold eye makeup? Share your tips!

Temptalia's AnswerI like bold eyeliner for a good first step, and another alternative is to use a bolder or richer shade in the crease. Sometimes the key is just to try it out and get comfortable seeing that level of color on your face with your features.

What has been your best dupe of a high end brand product? Was it worth it? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerL’Oreal True Teal is very similar to some of my favorite teal eyeliners, and it’s a fantastic formula to boot.

How does your makeup reflect your personality? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI think that you have to be comfortable in your own skin, so it’s about wearing products that make you feel good and that you’re confident in, which is often how I choose what products I wear when I’m not testing. I also feel that people should wear what they want to, and never, ever be made to feel less-than because they’ve embraced one trend and not another, or they’ve created their own trends, which is why I’m happy to feature and wear products that may otherwise be relegated as “other,” because I love that they exist and enjoy trying them out, and I’d like them to be a normal option for anyone who wishes to wear it.
