Temptalia Asks You


Have you ever slept in your makeup? Did your skin thank you for it? Or punish you for your mistake?

Temptalia's AnswerI think I’ve taken a nap once or twice with makeup on, so about an hour or less of actual sleep, but never a full, “going to bed” kind of sleep where I’ve worn makeup. Oh, wait, I have tested a couple of eyeshadows for 24-hours, so yes, indeed. No ill effects, thankfully :)

What kind of makeup bag/organizer do you use when you travel? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI use a MAC brush roll for carrying brushes, and then I have two Tom Ford Makeup Bags – one for eye products and tools (like an eyelash curler), one for cheeks/face/lips. Anything liquid in a quart-sized bag if I’m flying!

How did you figure out the best shape for your brows? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerWhat I recommend is looking at a ton of photos of various models and celebrities (easiest to find) and see what brow shapes you like the best, and then think about what your natural brows look like. THEN take these ideas to a reputable brow expert and have them give you insight and help shape them initially. I vote professional in this instance, and once you nail down the shape, maintenance can be done at home (or you can go in still!). If you have a fairly full brow and you’re planning to go thinner to gradually go thinner – easier to ensure you get the right thinness you want without going too thin!

Are there any products you love but can’t use because of the scent? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerOh, yes! Some of the moisturizers I’ve tried feel great and seem to hydrate, but they’re so heavily fragranced that I can smell it all day long — usually something floral, which always bothers me!

Have you ever been hesitant to try a product only to fall in love with it later? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerCleansing oils… I didn’t think I’d like the consistency/feeling of it on my face, and very early on, I was scared of adding oil to my face (I know better now!), but I love them!
