Have you ever layered two blushes together? What are some of your favorite combinations?

Temptalia's AnswerKevyn Aucoin’s Starlight is a blush/highlighter on me, but I often use it as a blush and then layer something like Tom Ford Love Lust over it for more color.

Do you like to window shop for makeup? Or do you prefer to only look at makeup when you’re looking for something specific?

Temptalia's AnswerIn-store, only if there’s something specific. Online, I’ll browse away!

What’s your current evening skincare routine? Share yours!

Temptalia's AnswerI almost always use a cleansing oil (likely shu uemura) to remove makeup and dirt, and I’ll use Lancome Bi-Facil on a Q-Tip to remove any last bits of eyeliner along the lower lash line. I use two prescription products, a topical antibiotic (clindamycin) and Differin, followed by Origins GinZing moisturizer.

What’s your current morning skincare routine? Share yours!

Temptalia's AnswerI usually cleanse with Origins GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser (or Kate Somerville ExfoliKate, which is about once a week), then prescription antibiotic foam (clindamycin), Tatcha Brightening Serum (I have a small sample), and finally Origins A Perfect World SPF 35 with White Tea (which has apparently been discontinued).

What do you look for in a good blush? Share your dream formula!

Temptalia's AnswerI love a soft, smooth, blendable blush with moderate pigmentation that has a satiny sheen–luminous but doesn’t emphasize pores–with long wear.

How do you resist buying beauty products? Share your tips & tricks!

Temptalia's AnswerI don’t resist a lot, but I try to remind myself that I already photograph/swatch hundreds more products than I can actually test/review so I need to keep the purchasing in line with what I’m actually able to review!
