Temptalia Asks You

Do you prefer your eyeshadows in pots or palettes? Do you depot shadows to fit into palettes? Only buy from brands with palette options?

Temptalia's Answer.

I prefer palettes myself. I just find I forget about anything that isn’t in the palette — if it’s in the palette, I’ll see it when I’m feeling like a blue eyeshadow or a pink one.

Do you sanitize your beauty products? Do you have a schedule? Never?

Temptalia's Answer.

I sanitize lipsticks every 6 months or so, powder products every 6-9 months (generally when I do a major re-organization). I’m pretty clean about skincare and the like. I use recycleable disposable lipgloss wands for gloss so no double-dipping.

I sanitize lipsticks by dipping them in rubbing alcohol, gently blotting, then letting it dry (about five minutes). I sanitize powders by spraying them with rubbing alcohol, waiting 30 seconds or so, then wiping down with a paper towel. I get my recycleable, disposable lipgloss wands here; they also have lip brushes here.

What kind of lighting do you do your makeup in? Natural? Office? Special bulbs?

Temptalia's Answer.

I actually have no idea. They’re just whatever lights my apartment bathroom has! Probably some form of fluorescent.
