Temptalia Asks You


How do you bring out your eye color? Share your eye color and tips!

Temptalia's AnswerI’ll usually use golds and plums, as it warms up the natural brown tones while making them appear more hazel.

Temptalia Asks You


If you could create a collection with any beauty brand, which brand would you pick? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerMaybe Urban Decay, because I’d love to create an eyeshadow palette, and I love their eyeshadow formula in general. It would also mean that it would be more affordable. It would be really cool to collaborate with a luxury brand like Guerlain to create something high quality but also exquisitely packaged.

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Teeth Whitening!

my answer: It’s not something I consider traditionally part of beauty, but it really is part of my beauty routine, as I’m a heavy coffee drinker so whitening is a necessity when wearing certain lip colors. It’s never that comfortable to wear, and to avoid causing sensitivity (or too much of it), I have to go for slower, more drawn out options!

When you want your makeup to last extra long, how does your routine change? Do you use different products? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI definitely add primer to my routine both for eyes as well as the face. I also make sure to keep a powder compact with me, as it helps to touch-up and extend the wear of my base if I find it’s not lasting as well as I want it to later on! I also like to layer powder blush over a cream blush. On lips, I’ll start with a lip liner, then a lipstick.

Happy Sunday!

How are you doing on this beautiful Sunday morning (or afternoon, evening, or maybe it’s almost Monday where you are)? I’m getting photos ready for Monday’s posts, so I can spend some time with my family later this afternoon/evening. We’re doing brunch at home (nothing fancy); what do you like to put in your omelets?
