Temptalia Asks You

How many beauty products do you use per day? Count up the products that you use nearly everyday and come back and tell us how many you ended up with!

For me, since I don’t actually wear full makeup more than two or three days a week, I will go with my off-day total, which is five (morning cream, foundation [sometimes], cleanser, night cream, lip balm).

SCENARIO: In a week I will visit my a love interest in Australia. Since I live in Europe this will involve two long-haul flights. From experience I know that I won’t look stellar upon landing. I would like to be the most glowing version of myself and blow him away, without applying masks every five minutes on the plane. We have a strict liquids rule, so can’t bring any big packages. Do you have advice on achieving a radiant look (hair and skin) after traveling for over 24 hours?
