Thanks for all the questions! Keep sending them in to [email protected]. If you have a time-sensitive question, please let me know so I can try and answer it on time. If you didn’t see your question, check for it in the next Ask Temptalia post. Keep on sending them in!Q: When I try to use the paint pots (in Rubenesque), it looks caky and uneven when I apply, even without a primer. Do you have any suggestions on how I can fix this problem?A: Are you applying too much product? What do you apply it with? I find applying it with a firm, flat brush (249) works wonders, and I only use a sheer layer, not a lot of product.Q: I have really small eyes, how can I make them pop and open them up?A: Using a good mascara paired with a good eyelash curler can really open up eyes. Lashes should have decent length and a touch of thickness to really do the job. By curling the lashes, you accentuate height and open up the eye. You can also try lining either the upper lash line, lower lash line, or even both – it depends on your preference and natural eye shape. Many will argue that upper lash lining does wonders for enlarging the eye. You can make eyes pop or be more defined by accentuating the depth of your crease. Continue reading →

I had the pleasure of checking out some products from Prescriptive’s Seducers (Fall 2007) collection, as well as their new 24-hour mascara.

PRESCRIPTIVES | THE SEDUCERS FALL 2007

First, a no-mascara vs. mascara comparison, so everyone can see the effects of Prescriptive’s latest mascara formula. Above, those are my pathetic au natural lashes – we can see why mascara is a woman’s staple, can’t we?

Below, you can see my lashes with 2-3 coats of the mascara on (no lash comb – so you can see everything about it). I find it gives me incredible length, but it doesn’t give me the fullness or thickness I usually want (which leads me to go after a fourth coat, uh oh!). The length, though, phenomenal – really false lash-esque. My lashes always seem to clump together, so it’s probably not a result of the mascara, more the result of my poor lash structure!
