Temptalia Asks You

What do you think of organic beauty products? Are you drawn to them, prefer them, or do not care either way? Do you feel that if it says organic that it’s better for you?

I do find my biggest issue with products labeled organic is that they smell unpleasant. I also am concerned whether how organic products are, since regulation of the term is not strict from what I remember.

This is part of a tutorial that is “coming soon,” about how to go from daytime look to darker daytime look to subtle evening look to dramatic evening look. Yesterday, I posted the subtle evening look. The difference? I added Silver Ring eyeshadow to the middle lid with Vex all over the inner lid.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Blanc Type eyeshadow on inner lid, Bisque eyeshadow on middle of lid, Soft Brown eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Brun eyeshadow in outer crease, Carbon eyeshadow in the outer crease, Silver Ring eyeshadow on middle lid, Vex eyeshadow on inner lid, Blanc Type eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, Brun eyeshadow on brows, and Plushblack mascara on lashes. I wore True Romantic blush on cheeks with Tenderdusk beauty powder to highlight. I had Sweetie lipstick with Dreamy lipglass on my lips.

Temptalia Asks You

Are you a blush addict, or is just one color all you really need? Do you find that you only use a few blushes or that you are constantly on the hunt for more?

I seem to be drawn to blushes, but truthfully, I definitely use a handful regularly, while the rest go ignored.

This is part of a tutorial that is “coming soon,” about how to go from daytime look to darker daytime look to subtle evening look to dramatic evening look. Yesterday, I posted the kicked up daytime look, and now this an evening look/night time look. The difference? Now we’ve really amped up the crease by using Carbon eyeshadow and going heavier on the black liner. (*Note: for some reason the crease doesn’t look perfectly blended, but in person, it was fine – I kept going back and freaking out over it because it would show up harsher in the photos but then there was nothign to blend away when I looked in the mirror!!)

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Blanc Type eyeshadow on inner lid, Bisque eyeshadow on middle of lid, Soft Brown eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Brun eyeshadow in outer crease, Blanc Type eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, Brun eyeshadow on brows, and Plushblack mascara on lashes.
