I have some very exciting news to share with you all! It’s a project that has been in the works since January: Beyond Beauty: Look Compilation. A few readers have flattered me enormously by going through my looks and printing some of their favorites out, and I had several suggest making an e-book/book of my looks available. I’m so pleased to be able to say you can now order your very own copy of Beyond Beauty: Look Compilation.

It features a compilation of looks from the past two years. It does not feature every look, but it features the looks I feel were my best work as well as a good variety of different types of looks. Each look features an individualized tip, plus an area for you to write in your own notes/comments. The book is 100 pages in length, with just over forty different looks featured in it. All of the pages are 100% full color, and the pages are 8×11″ in size.

It is available in three versions through Lulu.com:

Hardcover ($49.95)

Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu.

Paperback ($34.95)

e-Book ($9.95)*

* e-Book is priced at $9.95 during the promotional period 11/15/08 through 11/22/08. After, it will be available for $14.95.

Thank you for your support and confidence in Temptalia.com!

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]gmail.com!

See more mask-y looks! Continue reading →
