Yeah, I put on a full face of makeup to pack up my apartment! So what! ;)

I used Uppity fluidline (LE) on lid, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow on middle of lid, Humid eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow above crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow on brow and lower lash line, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara. I had Margin blush on cheeks. I wore Tiger Tiger lipstick (LE) with Pink Grapefruit lipglass (LE) on my lips.

Even though you’re probably a sunscreen wiz, since I know you’ve already read our Sunscreen 101 series, sometimes over exposure occurs, and you’re left with reddened skin. What to do?  Follow up with a cooling treatment with high aloe vera content.

Liz Earle Sun Shade Botanical Aftersun Gel ($23.50) is a very lightweight gel to help soothe skin that’s just seen too much sun and needs some cooling treatment. My boyfriend, who is much fairer than I, also burns easy compared to me (I don’t think I’ve ever had sunburn). I put this on his shoulders, and he was a happy camper. It has 92% hydrating organic aloe vera, which is a must-have in your beauty closet when it’s summer (if not year-round!). I sometimes use this on itchy or raw skin, and I find it gives me enough comfort and cooling to keep me from making it worse on myself.

Face

  • La Roche-Posay Athelios SX Daily Moisturizer with SPF15
  • Mac Studio Fix Fluid in NC15 (the lightest shade they have)

  • MAC Mothbrown on crease
  • MAC Fluidline in Macroviolet tightlined and on bottom waterline

Temptalia Asks You


Do you prefer buying online or going to the store? Why is that your preference?

I thought I’d keep it simple for today :) Took my boyfriend and his brother drunk mini-golfing (I’m allergic to alcohol, so I’m always DD!). Kind of fun?

What does everyone have planned for the weekend? I’m moving!  Incredibly exciting, right?  So not.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on inner half of lid, Charcoal Brown eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Satin Taupe eyeshadow on outer crease, Goldmine eyeshadow lightly on outer lid/middle of lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow bone to highlight, Urban Decay Stash 24/7 liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Margin blush with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer on cheeks. I wore Fuschia Fix tinted lip conditioner with Take A Hint tendertone (LE) on lips.

Take A Hint = Cellopink
