Are there any beauty products that remind you of certain people in your life? Maybe your grandmother always wore Chanel. No. 5?

Temptalia's AnswerMy maternal grandmother wears a lot of Chanel No. 5, which is the only association that really came to my mind.

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.

How you deal with dry patches on your face? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI try to use a really hydrating serum or moisturizer more as a spot treatment on the area the night before, and I’ll also use it the morning-of. I might switch to a more emollient foundation (like a tinted moisturizer) if it is particularly bad!

How do you take care of your eye area? Eye cream? Masks? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI use a gentle makeup remover (usually a cleansing oil or a cotton pad with Lancome Bi-Facil, something like that) at night to remove all the makeup. I’ll use a Q-tip dipped in makeup remover to get all the last bits off the lash line. Sometimes I try to use an eye cream (right now I’m trying to use Mario Badescu’s Hyaluronic one), but I usually just use the same product I’m using on my face all-over.
