What’s your philosophy on makeup? Do you have one? Share it if you do!

Temptalia's Answer.

Make up is all about having fun and playing with color! It can be a life saver in so many ways — it can help boost your self esteem when your skin is wreaking havoc on your life, or it can act as an amazing outlet for your creativity.

Is there any color eyeshadow you won’t wear? I know your favorites, but what about a shade you don’t dare to wear?

Temptalia's Answer.

Certain shades of yellow just look wonky on me — like Chrome Yellow!

Do you change your makeup technique/routine/style if you know you’ll be photographed? How does it change?

Temptalia's Answer.

I reduce or eliminate usage of SPF on my face, because SPF has a tendency to reflect. I also spend more time on perfecting the skin.

Do you believe that higher price means higher quality? Will your mileage vary from product-to-product (or brand-to-brand)?

Temptalia's Answer.

I think it varies, and I don’t think it really scales 1:1 (or I suppose, dollar for dollar). For some products, you do get higher quality ingredients, less filler ingredients, etc. or “better” packaging.
