Temptalia Asks You


What’s your favorite part of your morning beauty routine? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI always shower in the morning, and it’s my favorite because it helps wake me up, start my day off right, and always smells good (yay for scented body wash).

    Moisturizer! I have drier skin, and it just feels sooo good.

    I love putting on my makeup, specifically my eyebrows, mascara, and blush because it makes such a HUGE difference for my features! :)

    I hate, hate, hate getting up early for work. I have an hour commute and start at 7:30 a.m. so I never seem to want to get out of bed…..BUT I do love when I am out of the shower and at my vanity picking out what makeup to wear for the day. It’s like every little bit, mascara, blush, lips, etc gives me more to be glad to be awake about. I love even just looking at my stash…so pretty!!!

  4. I definitely agree….I love showering in the morning and smelling my fresh shampoo throughout the day. The scent from my shampoo always puts a smile to my face.

    So refreshing!

    Well that…and I love putting on my makeup in the morning – it’s like an art project every day!

    I guess my favorite part would be sleeping as late as I can until I have to get up. I shower at night so all I have to do in the morning is throw on clothes, brush my teeth, make my travel mug of tea and bagel, and get out the door which I have to do by about 6:05am. This is why I usually skip makeup for work unless I put it on after I get there.

  6. I love applying foundation because it feels like a little face massage. And my skin looks so much better afterwards…

    My favorite part is doing my makeup. That’s when I feel like its “me time” and I can indulge myself with wonderful and luxurious products.

  8. My favorite part is just sitting down in front of my vanity and doing my makeup. I like to take my time even if I use minimal makeup for work, I can just sit there for at least 30 mins and not think about anything while listening to the morning news in the background. It’s very relaxing for me and it just starts my day right! :)

      This is exactly me too! I always turn on the news and grab my cup of coffee before I head in to do my makeup.

  9. When I get to go back to my beauty sleep, of course. ;)

    I’m weird but I hate showers in the morning, I always take one right before I go to bed. My favorite part is using my Olay Exfoliator thing. It just feels soooooo good. I love it!

    That’s funny because I love taking my showers at night because it makes me sleepy. I always sleep better after I’ve taken a shower. My favorite morning routine is doing my makeup!

  12. Kalyn Eastman

    when it’s done! ;)

  13. Filling in my eyebrows lol. Even though I have fullish brows, I still feel naked without something through them.

    Probably fixing my hair. I rarely do something unique with it, but it is ridiculously long, and as thick as rope. Watching it go from a tangled mess to smooth and shiny starts my day off wonderfully.

    I love putting on my makeup. I find it so relaxing. I usually take like an hour to get ready, I like to take my time. It’s so worth it.

    Picking which perfume I’m going to be wearing that day.

  17. My favorite part of the morning routine is definitely a hot shower! I’m usually chilled when I get out of bed in the morning so it feels wonderful to get into that hot steamy shower to warm my bones. I wouldn’t be able to get anything done unless I warmed up, I would just stay in bed under the covers trying to keep from shivering!

    My favorite part is washing my face.
    I love taking my time to get ready in the morning. I wake up about an half and hour to an hour early just so I can take my time. Enjoy my breakfast, go through my face washing routine thoroughly, and put on my makeup. My day starts off horribly if I feel rushed.

    After I’ve had my cuban coffee (because I’m the walking dead without it), I have a couple favorites. I keep tarte’s maracuja oil (rollerball) and clinique’s all about eyes serum (also rollerball) in the fridge so it gets really cold. In the morning I will roll one on my eyes. It wakes me up right away and feels great. After that I love love love to do my makeup. Seriously, to me, that is the best part of my morning. I know it sounds vain, but it is just the ritual that is so relaxing!

    I shower at night because it helps me sleep. So in the morning, my favorite thing is splashing ice-cold water on my face. It really wakes me up and brightens my complexion. Then I’m ready for makeup!

    I’ve recently gotten into colorful eyeshadow palettes, so “designing my eye look” is my new favorite part of my beauty routine? Will it be purples, greens, blues? Or just a pop of emerald or pink with my neutrals? Never the same look twice.

  22. Definitely a shower for me too! Nothing wakes me up and gets me ready for the day like a hot shower.

    In the morning its putting on my makeup while listening to Pandora or the radio.It’s the last thing I do before leaving the house and it jump starts my day. At night when I get home it’s picking one of my large collection of shower gels to use and picking one of my body butters for moisturizing thereafter. I get a kick at seeing all the drugstore and high end skin care collection I use for my eczema prone body.

  24. I rather enjoy the whole process unless I am rushed.

    I love the finishing touch-perfume. I know I’m done and ( hopefully) pulled together. I love to pick a nice scent that reflects my mood.

    I exfoliate my lips each morning with my toothbrush, and then immediately apply lip balm and let it sit until I apply my lip gloss. Lip products are my favorite beauty products, and I don’t feel completely polished and put together until I have pretty, luscious lips each day before I leave the house!

  27. I love to bath in the morning with sonic technology: toothbrush & Clarisonic. I never leave the house without mascara, groomed clean hair, nice outfit and a smile. With 5 kids (hectic mornings), I need to make choices and decided to focus on my strong points.
