Temptalia Asks You

How do you apply your blush? What tools/technique do you use?

Temptalia's Answer.

I use MAC’s 116 brush, and I lightly pat on the color from the apple of the cheek to the temple, and then I do a sweeping swoosh to blend.

Thanks to Cherie for today’s question!

Temptalia Asks You

Do you worry about signs of aging? Are you scared of aging?  Working hard with preventive care?  Take it as part of life?

Temptalia's Answer.

I don’t think I’m scared of aging.  Sure, I’d love to have perfect skin without any fine lines, but I’d also love to just have acne-free skin.  In fact, I’d take acne-free and a few fine lines if that’s what it cost!  I think aging is part of a natural process, so while we can certainly not speed it up (e.g. wear sunscreen), it’s not something I stress out over yet.

Temptalia Asks You

Have you ever paid over retail for a limited edition/discontinued product? If so, what product? How much did you end up snagging it for?

Temptalia's Answer.

Hmm. I actually think I would have to say no here. I don’t think I have ever paid more than retail for a beauty item, but I could just have a selective memory.

Thanks to Sally for today’s question!
