Temptalia Asks You


What question would you like to see asked here? I need ideas! The best questions are open-ended, discussion questions, less “what’s your favorite ___” kind of questions — those are used in other posts, like Hit List and Survey Says! :)

Temptalia's AnswerThank you for the ideas! I look forward to using your questions :)

What do you do if you can’t get an eyeshadow to blend out perfectly? Do you start over? Have a last ditch effort/trick? Just go with it?

Temptalia's AnswerIf it’s MY fault, then I’ll keep trying and eventually try to use another, slightly lighter color to diffuse it more or try fingertips or a sponge applicator. If it’s more likely because the eyeshadow is dry or thin, I’ll blend and try to make it work with tools (but no added eyeshadows) and then leave it as-is, which works since I also want to show its shortcomings for reviews. In real life, it’s unlikely someone is going to notice a little unblended color on your eye if it’s not 100% perfect.

How do you like to use cream eyeshadows? How do you use them most often?

Temptalia's AnswerI love using them as a wash of color for a really, really quick look, or two or three of them paired together. I used to use them as eyeshadow bases, but I tend to just use them together now!

Are primers necessary? Face, eye, lip… what have you!

Temptalia's AnswerThey’re not necessary for me, but they’re a nice thing to have on hand/have available, even when products wear decently on me without them, because the reality is I’d rather add that extra layer and know for sure that my makeup will last 12-16+ hours than chance it.

What’s your current brow routine? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI’ve been alternating between MAC Espresso/Brun eyeshadows applied with an angled brush and MAC’s Deep Dark Brunette brow cream applied with a very thin angled brush. I tweeze to keep them in shape, and then trim with scissors occasionally when they get too scraggly!

What would your dream makeup room or set-up look like? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI have my dream storage (that’s both dream/still realistic — in dream world, everything would be displayed, haha!) in glossy black drawer units. I would love a vanity with a sink in it… but a really wide vanity with a small sink in it – more like a vegetable sink!
