Do you plan out your makeup looks in advance? Always on the fly? How far in advance?

Temptalia's AnswerIf it’s a big, big event, then I will plan maybe the day before just to collect the particular products I want (but honestly, I often go for my favorites for big events!). I usually have an idea of what products I’ll use based on what I’m testing, or what shades are left in a palette that need to be tested (whether they work together or not, haha!) for day-to-day stuff.

How do you apply under-eye concealer? Share your techniques!

Temptalia's AnswerI like to pat in place with my fingertip initially, then blend with a fluffy brush (something like the MAC 217 in shape), and then lightly press setting or finishing powder to keep it in place.

Do you like layering lip products? Share! What products do you layer most often?

Temptalia's AnswerI love it, though I don’t often get to do it! It’s a great way to mix to get the perfect shade, tone, or finish. I’m a huge fan of topping a lipstick with gloss (mostly for sparkle!).

What would you love to see in a spring color collection? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI’d love to see a April-showers-bring-May-flowers kind of collection–where there’s an almost overcast, muted quality with deeper shades (so it’s not all pastel) paired with brighter, bolder floral hues (perhaps muted shades on the eyes, bolder hues for lips, or bolder blush).

How do you like to apply loose powder? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI like using a large, dense, slightly flat brush so that I can press the powder into the skin (better coverage/better setting in my experience) — almost like you would with a sponge but using a brush instead.
