Thank you so much for using my question, Christine 😀 Odd thing is, I don’t remember asking it :/ LOL!

My song: Bruno Mars – Just The Way You Are

Why? This song is straight to the point … YOU are amazing just the way YOU are! With or without make-up I am amazing!

West Side Story- “I feel Pretty”
I feel pretty, Oh, so pretty, I feel pretty and witty and bright!
And I pity Any girl who isn’t me tonight. I feel charming,
Oh, so charming It’s alarming how charming I feel! And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I’m real. See the pretty girl in that mirror there: Who can that attractive girl be? Such a pretty face,
Such a pretty dress, Such a pretty smile, Such a pretty me!

For me, its always depends on the mood of the moment.
If I am feeeling La Dolce Vite esque its – NO DOUBT COOL.
If I am feeling very late 90s, (you know, vamp lips and yet having a ethereal tempo to it, its – FILTER TAKE A PICTURE.
If I am feeling very happy go lucky and just beach like- SMASH MOUTH ALL STAR.
If I am in the nostalgic mode its – SUGAR RAY SOMEDAY
And finally if I am just feeling on top of the world and just like nothing can beat me, its for sure – MICHAEL JACKSON REMEMBER THE TIME/PYT.


It would have to be “No Ordinary Love” by Sade lol. Well, this really is no ordinary love that I have for makeup!

I have to say that none really express how I feel about cosmetics per say (and I have a song for practically everything). I do have a few songs that make me think about makeup a bit, including “Natural’s Not In It” from Gang of Four:
The problem of leisure
What to do for pleasure
Ideal love a new purchase
A market of the senses
Dream of the perfect life
Economic circumstances
The body is good business

Coercion of the senses

I worry that it makes it seem like I don’t love makeup, but I do. I just always think about cosmetics, fashion, etc when I’m listening to that song and more so those lyrics.

That’s such a coincidence! I was dancing to that song with my son on Sunday! I guess the lyrics do fit this question.

The beginning of How Lovely to Be a Woman from Bye Bye Birdie always make me think of how much I love feminine things like makeup! Also, maybe something like I Feel Pretty from West Side Story, great song to put makeup on to lol

Wow – that is probably the most challenging and most interesting question ever posted in “Temptalia asks you”…
After quite some thinking, my song would be “Unpretty” from TLC. “…But if you can’t look inside you – find out who am I, too – be in a position to make me feel so damn unpretty…”

that song from Flower Drum Song “I Enjoy Being a Girl!”
(I know men where MU now but for me, wearing MU is a fun part of being a girl.)

or “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story.

“New Dress”-Depeche Mode.

Sometimes, especially this time of year, I feel my makeup stash is very superficial. It’s compounded with the fact this is the time of year I typically buy more due to the great values I find, and Fall & Winter collections are usually more appealing. I end up thinking the amount of money I’ve spent could have been put to use helping some-one with something they *really* need.
