If you could use one pre-made eyeshadow palette for the rest of your life, which would you choose? (See what I did there? You can’t cheat and choose one you created yourself!) Share!

Temptalia's AnswerGuerlain Turandot or Urban Decay’s Naked1. I think I could be pretty happy with either! I wouldn’t want to commit to a single palette for the rest of my life, but you know, if I had to.

Do you change your foundation formula as the seasons change? (Not color, the formula.) Share!

Temptalia's AnswerMy skin is pretty normal and doesn’t seem to get as dry as it used to, so it’s not as necessary to switch between finishes as it used to be, but I still find myself reaching for more luminous/less matte foundations in late winter. In the summer, I tend to look for more satin to semi-matte ones!

What kind of makeup tutorials do you prefer to read/watch? Every day/more minimal looks? Totally avant garde?

Temptalia's AnswerI love watching or reading through tutorials that really focus on a particular technique, makeup style/era, or are totally fun and avant garde. I think technique is very helpful, because you can apply it to what you’re doing, whether that’s subtle makeup or bolder looks.

Please keep comments to more general characteristics, rather than rants/raves of particular people. Thank you.

Do seasonal allergies change your makeup routine? Share! If you have no seasonal allergies… well, you lucky duck ;)

Temptalia's AnswerI used to get really, really bad seasonal allergies when I was younger. When I moved away to SoCal for college, they seemed to go away quite a bit, but when I came home, they would flare up again. I definitely had to take precautions like lighter eyeliners, more waterproof eyeliner/mascara formulas, and sometimes, no eye makeup (thank goodness for a bold lip!).

Should a collection work together? Would you rather the items stand alone/designed to incorporate with other products you own?

Temptalia's AnswerI think a few things should work together, ideally, but in general, I’d rather more unique/interesting shades across the board then a brand that releases a few basics just to make it a more wearable collection (together, that is).

Do you finish beauty products regularly? Rarely? Only base/skin care products?

Temptalia's AnswerI finish skin care products, Jack Black Lip Balms, and the occasional foundation! I am kind of weird with foundation in that I will wear one for awhile but then stop right before it’s done!
