Temptalia Asks You

When shouldn’t you wear makeup? Are there any times, places, etc. where you think you shouldn’t wear makeup? Is makeup always acceptable — just maybe the degree/heaviness of it?

REALLY blue look. I don’t think much else needs to be said, LOL.

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Mutiny pigment (aqua-blue), Surreal eyeshadow (light silvery-blue), Shimmermoss eyeshadow (teal), Freshwater eyeshadow (blue), Deep Truth (dark blue), Nylon eyeshadow (white gold highlighter), Urban Decay Electric 24/7 Liner (blue), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Sunbasque (dirty peach)
  • Lips: Antiquitease lipstick (copper brown), Nymphette lipglass (pink with gold)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Mutiny = Delft (closest dupe!); Antiquitease = Jist

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Mutiny pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner-to-middle lid, apply Surreal eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Freshwater to the outher lid with the 239. Darken the outer lid using Deep Truth eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 239. Sweep Nylon underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with UD Electric 24/7 Liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Sunbasque blush using the 129. Apply Antiquitease lipstick to lips, and then top with Nymphette lipglass for color and shine.

Visit www.votefornatural.com to learn about why natural is the way to go. Later this year, you should start seeing The Natural Seal (the green seal pictured above) on products that meet The Natural Standard for Personal Care Products. What I liked about the website is they have a portion devoted to explaining what is considered “Truly Natural.” You can learn about what types of ingredients can be used, the processes that fall under the umbrella, and so on.

Put simply, natural ingredients are profoundly effective, inspiring to your senses, better for the environment and beneficial to your well-being. When you vote for truly natural products, you’re already a winner because they’re simply good for you!

Oh, and I did I mention there are some prizes for those who “vote natural”? You get a chance to win a limited edition C&C California for Burt’s Bees T-shirt or a year’s worth of products ($500 value).
