Temptalia Asks You


What are you a beauty expert on? Skin? Makeup? Hair? Nails?

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

I have my practice oral argument, which is basically where I speak for eight minutes, then my opponent argues against me, and then I have another two minutes for rebuttal. What’s great is that it seems impossible to prepare for, so while I have some prepared remarks, I’m mostly going to wing it. Thankfully, tonight is practice, and I’m banking on it being a huge learning experience so I don’t make a total fool out of myself next Wednesday when I do it for real (in front of real judges!!–but the case is fake). Court attire required at the practice, nonethelesss, hence needing to do work safe makeup for real! (I have a feeling this may be “too much” by court standards, though. Poo!)

I used Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow all over lid, Brun eyeshadow in outer crease, Soft Brown eyeshadow in outer crease, Patina eyeshadow on outer lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow and lower lash line, Blacktrack fluidline on upper and lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Margin blush with Scult sculpting powder on cheeks. I wore Mari-sheeno lipstick (LE) with Moonbathe lipglass (LE) on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Mari-sheeno = no dupe!; Moonbathe = Love Nectar
