Temptalia Asks You

How important is skincare to you? Are you vigilant with your regimen? Never been a big deal for you?

Temptalia's Answer.

Skincare wasn’t on my radar until I was about 19 years old–that’s when I first started getting into makeup and learning that it’s important to remove all that makeup, too. I also learned that sunscreen is a must, and man, I wish someone had told me when I was like… two!

Temptalia Asks You

Do you leave the house without makeup? Do you have to have something on before you leave?

Temptalia's Answer.

It’s not often, but I definitely do. I’d say maybe 1 out of 5 times, I’ll go out with nothing, and many times, just tinted moisturizer! (Thank goodness for tinted moisturizer!)
