Temptalia Asks You


Have you ever had sensitive or watery eyes when wearing makeup? How do you handle/work around them?

Temptalia's AnswerI try to leave a very, very tiny bit of space between my upper lash line and my lid that’s only noticeable if I photograph and really look down (most of the time), because I find it helps prevent some drop of product into the eye. I also try to comb through my bare lashes after applying eyeshadow to remove any excess powder so that it doesn’t get into my eyes later on! Some eyeliners cause my eyes to water, so I won’t wear them on the water line.

What has been the most underrated beauty product you’ve tried? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI think a good brow gel gets missed often (I like Marc Jacobs or MAC’s the most), because it’s such a basic/staple product, and it can seem odd to spend that kind of money on what amounts to clear hair gel. The other product I thought of was Tom Ford’s Blushes, which absolutely are well-loved by those who have tried, but I hear about Tom Ford’s lipsticks all the time and rarely see the same kind of loved showed for the blushes (which I think are more impressive as a formula).
