When you want your skin to look its very best, what’s your routine? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerExfoliate the night before, then a hydration mask or extra hydrating serum/cream. In the morning, I’ll use a smoothing primer followed by a medium coverage foundation mixed with a liquid illuminator and set with loose or pressed setting powder, then dust finishing powder all-over.

What beauty products or shades do you find truly multi-purpose? Share your favorites!

Temptalia's AnswerLiquid highlighters/illuminizers, because I mix them in with foundation, dab them on top of foundation for a more obvious look, and they work well for brightening the under eye area or all-over the lid.

How do you get a good curl for your eyelashes? Share your techniques & tips!

Temptalia's AnswerI use shu uemura’s eyelash curler, which fits my eye shape/lashes well without pinching and gives a good, natural curl. Some mascaras are better/worse for holding (or killing) the curl, but I tend to like lighter-weight mascaras for helping.
