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.

I love an old MAC quad – Liza AM! It’s all mattes, and the colors are just really great for everyday.

Does your beauty routine change for the summer? If so, how?

Temptalia's Answer.

Oh, definitely! I wear less face makeup, make sure to always load up on the sunscreen and reapply throughout the day, and am more conscious about setting my makeup, too.
