Temptalia Asks You

Do you want people to tell you if you’ve made a makeup mistake? (Like your foundation doesn’t match, mascara flakes off, etc.)

Temptalia's Answer.

Yes and no. I want to know certain things like big errors, but little mistakes… only if I’m able to fix ‘em! :)

Prescriptives Mineral Color

Prescriptives is adding color to its mineral portfolio with the introduction of NEW Mineral Color for Face, Eyes and Lips. The purity and natural benefits of minerals are now offered in a vibrant color collection inspired by nature’s own minerals and gems. Its star ingredient is the R.E.C. (Radiance Emitting Crystals) complex — a unique combination of Amethyst, Rose Quartz and Calcite — so it absorbs light and delivers radiance and luminosity so skin appears to be “glowing from within.” Bright gems and minerals infused with vitamins create a look that is healthy, luminous and breathtaking.

I wore this look yesterday to have lunch with my mom and sister :) My mom seemed to really love this look on me — she said everything just complemented each other. She rarely comments on my makeup, so maybe there’s something to what she said, ha!

Happy Friday! I hope you all have some fun weekend plans coming up!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (matte, neutral base), Blanc Type eyeshadow (matte beige-white), Showstopper eyeshadow (matte, cool dark brown), Spiced Chocolate eyeshadow (matte reddish-brown), Bisque eyeshadow (matte highlighter), Urban Decay Underground 24/7 Liner (dark dark brown), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Refined mineralize skinfinish (peach-nude)
  • Lips: Touch lipstick (creamy brown-taupe), Lychee Luxe lipglass (coral)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush), 214 (smudge brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Showstopper = Ground Brown; Spiced Chocolate = Embark, Refined = Soft & Gentle

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base. Apply Blanc Type eyeshadow all over the lower lid using the 239. Apply Showstopper eyeshadow to the middle-to-outer crease with the 226. Overlay the crease with Spiced Chocolate eyeshadow using the 226. Sweep Bisque eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Underground 24/7 Liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Refined mineralize skinfinish using the 129. Apply Touch lipstick to lips, and then top with Lychee Luxe lipglass for color and shine.

Kings & Queens is a body care line I’ve seen carried at Nordstrom, but the price of their products isn’t what you’d expect from Nordstrom. Seriously, if I can get out of Nordstrom without spending $100+, it’s been a very good day! They’ve just created a set of their awesome shower gels for guess what… $8! Yes, eight bucks! (And yes, I know it’s cheaper by the oz. to purchase one shower gel alone, but who doesn’t like to try scents out to find the one you really love first?)

Anyway, Kings & Queens is also carried at other major retailers like Beauty.com (which is where you can find this set). I absolutely adored the scent of Sultan of Granada (as did my boyfriend, who I think ended up using most of it). This is a great way to try other scents without breaking the bank. Plus, I’m sure some of you will be traveling soon enough with summer just a few months away, and each showergel in the set is 1 oz., making them totally travel-friendly.

Royal Favorites Set ($8.00)

  • Nefertiti Honey Showergel
  • Chinese Princess Jasmine showergel
  • Queen Isabella Cinnamon Orange Showergel
  • Emperor Akbar Mango Showergel
  • Sultan of Granada Lemon Flavor Showergel
