Temptalia Asks You


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.

Do you have a go to lip color (or lip color combination)? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerNot so much, since I’m usually testing, and even on those few occasions that I’m not… I might just reach for something recently reviewed/tested that I liked. My most worn combo over the past few years is likely Guerlain Gems + Bobbi Brown Canary or Nectar.

Has your beauty routine changed as you’ve gotten older? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI’m more concerned with texture – can’t get away with some of the high-shine, metallic-y textures on the skin as much as I used to. Sometimes I don’t care, because it’s pretty and the only one I’m trying to make happy with makeup is me, but I definitely appreciate a really flattering texture more now than I used to.

What lighting do you prefer for applying makeup? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI like really bright lights, and preferably, ones that aren’t hot! I love the brightness of the lights I have now, but they’re SO hot that I feel like I’ll sweat all my makeup off before I’m done sometimes!

What’s your go-to look for a job interview? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI would define and groom my eyebrows, apply a light-medium coverage foundation (and set with powder), a rosy brown blush, light mascara on eyes, brown eyeliner, and then a soft pink lip color.
