Temptalia Asks You


Do you have no makeup days? Why/why not?

Temptalia's Answer.

I don’t plan for any *specific* day to be no makeup, but I definitely have them and embrace those days! I also try not to keep my makeup on all day, if I don’t need to. For some reason, I enjoy letting my skin breathe after I know I’m done for the day, whether it’s 11am or 11pm.

Here’s mine…

  • Last Look you wore that you LOVED!: A coral & bronze look (details here)
  • Last Eyeshadow you fell in love with: MAC Sweet & Punchy — I LOVE the texture. It’s so amazing.
  • Last Blush you wore: MAC Get-Away Bronze; I like it, but it can be hard to get to look just right in photos so it doesn’t just look dirty.
  • Last time you washed your brushes: Last night!  Any time I do a bolder/more colorful look, I wash my brushes right away so there is no staining to deal with!
  • Last nail polish you removed: China Glaze For Audrey — gotta put it on my toes again soon!

First, I’ll share mine!

Haul: Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams x5, Kiehl’s UV 50 (the new one), MAC Marine Life

Excited for: No school on Monday!  Which mostly just gives me extra time to prepare for the last week of the quarter & get ready for finals.

Friday plans: I’m actually kind of a homebody.  I think it’s because I’m pretty busy during the week, and my weekends do slow down a bit, so I like to spend time with my family (the boyfriend and Mellanhead) or visiting my parents.  I think we may go out for either lunch or dinner and then settle in for some DVR!

This week’s Mellan photo… Continue reading →
