How do you apply cream blush? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI use a stippling brush (like MAC’s 159 or 188) to apply to the skin, and then I blend out with fingertips.

What’s your nail care routine? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerIf my nails are really long, then I cut them to the right length and file to get the right shape (squoval for me). Every month or so, I buff my nails and use a cuticle oil all over–assuming I remember. I try to use hand cream every day, but I’m more at once a week.

Do you seek out new beauty products when on vacation? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerYES! Most definitely. I look for brands or shops that aren’t normally accessible to me! Recently, I visited Barney’s and bought Surratt Beauty products as I don’t live anywhere near one!

What beauty product seemed too good to be true but was amazing? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerTom Ford Blushes, Guerlain Rouge G Lipsticks, Chikuhodo brushes. Anything extremely expensive always seems like there’s no way it can be as good as they think it is, but when they really knock it out of the park, it’s awesome.

What’s your most unconventional beauty trick or tip? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerDip a pencil eyeliner into a gel eyeliner to apply, rather than use a brush! Otherwise… wear whatever you want, regardless of whether it technically “flatters” you – because if it makes you happy when you wear it, that’s what matters!

What beauty product worked well on you that you didn’t think would? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerMarc Jacobs Shooting Stars was a surprise hit for me – I really liked it. In general, I shy away from brown-based lip colors (I think it is all the backlash for “90s” colors I see), but I find I quite like them on me.
