Happy Halloween 2008 from Temptalia!

Happy Halloween my dearest readers! I hope everybody’s having a fun (and safe–yeah, I said it!) holiday, whether you’re staying in or heading out for midnight festivities. The boy and I actually ran some errands, stopped at Borders and had a coffee date, and now we’re home. I compiled this post with three “looks” I’ve done that are sort of Halloween-y. They’re basically masks/more dramatic makeup that wouldn’t be something I’d rock to the grocery store on a regular day. Surprisingly enough, only one of these looks was done for Halloween. I admit, I used to be far more creative and experimental when I first got into makeup. I think I might have to sift through some of my old folders for photos to get inspired for the future :)

What’d you do (or what are you going to do) for the holiday?

I’d LOVE to see all the fantastic costumes and makeup (whether traditional or totally off-the-wall) and do a round-up. Submit your photos to temptalia[at]!

See more mask-y looks!

As of October 29th, 2008, Temptalia achieved its fundraising goal of $1,000 for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I want to give you all my greatest thanks and utmost appreciation for your support in our efforts! Today is the last day for fundraising, and just because we hit our goal doesn’t mean you can’t still donate. Again, thank you, dearest readers, for your tremendous support. Know that every single cent counts in the efforts to fight against this devastating disease and help find a cure.

I will select a winner over the weekend, who will be notified via the email address they paid via PayPal with. Good luck to everyone! Donation will be made once the donations received can be transferred to our debit card (BCRF takes donations via credit card only, not PayPal). I will post a confirmation once the donation has occurred!

Temptalia’s Before & After Hair Photos

In my excitement to tell (and show!) you all about my new hairstyle, I totally overlooked how important a before and after shot would be! So, here it is :) I was completely overwhelmed by the response to the cut, so thank you all so very much! I agree I could go as short as the original inspiration cut, I love that I have the illusion of length, but the perks of shorter hair. It’s not fear holding me back to go shorter, it’s how much I love this modified cut and how well it reflects me! Thank you all for your assurance the cut worked out and I could go short :)
