What are five beauty tips every makeup fan should know? Share your favorites!

Temptalia's Answer.

1.) Practice makes perfect — you learn so much through practice, not to mention you *do* improve over time as well. 2.) Brushes make a difference, quality brushes make an even bigger one. 3.) Don’t let rules confine you–play around, experiment, find what YOU like. 4.) Take photos–the closer the better–so you can really see where you need to improve (if anywhere!). 5.) Always have fun.

Do you take care of your nails? Lovingly, painstakingly? Ignore them?

Temptalia's Answer.

Total honesty? I don’t really do anything. I try to apply hand cream regularly, but otherwise, nothing.

It took me awhile, but I’m pretty happy with them. I hate the maintenance, though!

What’s your five-minute look? What do you wear when you’ve only got a few minutes before you’re out the door?

Temptalia's Answer.

Tinted moisturizer, whatever mascara I can grab quickest, a quick slick of Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow (again, whatever I grab), and a lipgloss.

Do you purchase beauty/makeup products off of eBay/auction sites? Or are you too leery?

Temptalia's Answer.

I have, but it’s on very rare occasions. I do prefer to purchase from known retailers myself (Nordstrom, Sephora, etc.).
