This summer, we have giveaways upon giveaways upon GIVEAWAYS! for the amazing readers of Temptalia. What better way to thank you for visiting and supporting the blog than giving out boxes and bags full of prizes?  As of today, we have at least 32 prize packages that we will be giving away this summer. But don’t be surprised if many more are added over the coming days and weeks!

Some of the brands participating are:  Aveda, Avon, Belli, Clinique, DuWop, Estee Lauder, Fusion, gloMinerals, Jane Iredale, Lancome, LUSH, MAC, Olay, Sephora, Sonia Kashuk, Stila, vedaPURE, and MANY more with about 100 different products fashioned into customized prize packages to be given away!

How can you win? It may be easy, it could require some effort, and maybe some luck.  The majority of the prizes given away will be based on random winners.  Some of the bigger prizes may ask you submit a short story.  Be sure to read the individual giveaway’s rules.

Random Giveaways require you to leave a comment on the giveaway’s post.  This lets us know that you want to win that prize package.  If you have additional entries (see below), that’s when those will kick in.  We don’t want to give away prizes to those who aren’t interested in that giveaway’s prize, y’know?

You can get more chances to win by…

  • Refer your friends to join Temptalia Forums.  Every friend you refer to join gives you one entry into every giveaway determined by random.  Just be sure that those you refer put your member name in the referral area.

And of course, a few rules… Continue reading →

I really, really like this look. It is pretty similar to the look I did for my sister’s high school graduation a few days ago. I don’t normally repeat looks so close together, but since yesterday was Father’s Day, and I know my dad isn’t big on makeup… neutral it was!

What are some of your favorite neutral looks?

P.S. – I am so happy with my eyebrows — they are just about the thickness that I have been working on for the past two months.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Nylon eyeshadow on lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on middle of lid, Warming Trend eyeshadow (LE) on outer lid, Satin Taupe eyeshadow above crease, Bronze eyeshadow in outer crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Nylon eyeshadow on lower lash line, Blacktrack fluidline on upper and lower lash lines, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Margin blush with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer on cheeks. I wore High 90s slimshine (LE) with Nymphette lipglass 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!

Warming Trend = Patina; High 90s = Skew
