Temptalia Asks You

Do you share your makeup with others? Why/why not?

Temptalia's Answer.

I only share certain pieces — some are personal items, so I don’t, but others are kept sanitary so they can be used on others.

Once you’ve made the investment in brushes, take care of that investment by regularly washing and cleaning your brushes. Regular maintenance of your brushes will provide you with years of use, but it will also keep your makeup, brushes, and routine more sanitary. It is particularly important to regularly wash face brushes if you are acne-prone — it is best to do so after every use, especially with brushes that have been used in cream or liquids.

You can use any of the following:

  • Brush Cleanser (by MAC or any other brand)
  • MAC Cleanse-Off Oil (to remove stains)
  • Baby Shampoo (by any brand)

5 Ways to Wear: Bright Pink

Bright pink can be scary.  Trust me, I know!  This is coming from a girl who didn’t wear any makeup beyond eyeshadow for months (thank goodness I changed my ways!).  And this, still yet, coming from someone who rarely wears bold lip colors. (Oh, yeah, you can wear hot pink on the eyes, too… really!)

With Confidence

This will sound silly to some, but there is no sexier way to wear something than with a nice dose of confidence.  If you feel comfortable, feel like you’re rockin’ it, then you’re already half-way there.  If you feel uncomfortable or are self-conscious about what you’re wearing, it’s going to show, and no matter how well-done your makeup is, it’s not going to come together the way you’d like it to.

With Neutral Eyes

If you’re going to opt for bright pink on the lips, make sure to ease up on the boldness of your eyeshadow.  While there is always an exception to this little “rule,” putting emphasis on just one of your features helps the look appear focused and well-executed.  Neutral eyes are always a great go-to whenever you’re feeling a little bold for cheeks or lips.  I like to alternate between neutral or warm-toned neutrals, depending on what I’m wearing or the occasion.  If I’m rocking a more purple-based lip, then I’ll often opt for neutral-tones, rather than adding too much warmth on my eyes.  One way to tie-in color from your cheeks or lips into neutral eyes is by using it as a liner, either on the upper or lower lash line.  You can also use a slight touch of color in the crease as a tie-in.
