Happy Mother's Day + My Face of the Day!
Mother’s Day Look
Hope all the mothers, mothers-to-be, sisters, aunts, grandparents, fathers who played both roles, and any and all maternal figures in your life have a beautiful day filled with love and smiles. I know I am beyond fortunate to have the mother that I do; I see her reflected in myself often, and I know that a lot of who I am today is because of her–her philosophies, teachings, support, love, and sacrifices.

Beautiful look! And the lip color is perfect on you!
I purchased this lip color several weeks ago because of you! 🙂
Absolutely stunning! This is such a beautiful, soft look. May I ask what you’re using as an undereye concealer?
Thank you, Lulle! 🙂
Christine, your Mother’s Day sentiment brought tears to my eyes. I am blessed to have a wonderfully mom who I hold close to my heart and even closer when I see her in person. She also gave me one of life’s best blessings – my twin sister.
Christine, I don’t think I’ve seen you so naturally beautiful as you are in this picture. Happy Mother’s Day to you as a pet parent and to those you are celebrating today. Happy Mother’s Day to all in the Temptalia family!
Ooh, a twin! That is very cool (especially since you consider her a blessing!).
Thank you, Tracey!
Christine, you look beautiful! Happy Mothers Day.
I love that this look is fresh and sultry at the same time accented by the perfect earrings.
Super pretty look, Christine~ Happy Mother’s Day! Fur ball babies count 😀
Thank you 😀 They sure do!
What a gorgeous, natural look! You look fabulous Christine! Happy Mothers Day!
Thank you, Alicia! 🙂 Right back at you!
Love the look! And the top!
Thank you, Maggie 😀
Lovely thoughts and such a pretty look! (Must also be refreshing to post a non-testing products look…although I caught that Vice in there 😉 ) Have a lovely day!
lol, I’m actually testing all but cheek/face products 😉
Thanks a lot, Indya!
Oooooh! You look so beautiful! I for real caught my breath. That was also a lovely sentiment about your Mom. I would be willing to bet a lot that she is very very proud of you.
Aw, thank you Bonnie! 🙂
This is such a lovely, fresh, yet sophisticated look! You look fantastic and glowing, Christine! ?
( I hope your lips get a vacation after 120 try-ons the past few days! You’re the best!)
They actually are no worse for the wear, even if that doesn’t sound possible! I did about sixty a day (the second half took longer – I was doing them about 15 at a time, then two hours off, then doing another set, then breaking again), but I concluded all 120 by wearing the last one (Mrs. Mia Wallace) and my lips felt totally fine within an hour after finishing!
Wow! I’m impressed, not only by the formula, but your hard work and dedication to this blog! Thank you
This must be one kick-butt, ultra hydrating formula they put together! Or you’re actually Superwoman in disguise! LoL! ( I’m a wimp, after 10 at MAC or Sephora, I feel the burn!) I honestly have no idea *how* you did this quite substantial feat, but Muchos Gracias!
30 is a normal amount for me – I usually do 15-20 (I try NOT to photograph 1000 things all at once, because then editing is overwhelming — basically I’ve learned that it’s better to do a good amount but one manageable for editing, cropping, and then reviewing shortly after) – but I’ve done 50 in a single go before, so this wasn’t TOO much more of a stretch.
Now, if we were talking about doing 50 lip pencils, no way, no how!
Lovely as always! I went for a soft feminine look too!
Nice! What did you wear, Cat?
Christine, I’m sure your mother is proud of the woman you are. You are as beautiful inside as you are outside. To all of the mothers out there…happy mothers day. I hope you’ve had a blessed day.
Aww! That is so sweet of you to say. Thank you, Shari! Have a great day 🙂
A very lovely look for this special day for mums. Happy Mother’s Day to all the Temptalia community.
Thanks, Genevieve! Happy Mother’s Day!
Beautiful tribute for Mother’s Day! And don’t forget the Fur Moms, like you 🙂 Mellan is so fortunate to have you. Love the look, especially the lipstick!
Thank you, Katherine! 🙂
Wow! What a fresh, beautiful look!
Thanks, Bonnie! 🙂
You look beautiful Christine! I love the whole look.?
Aw, thanks Gillian!
You are absolutely beautiful and radiant, Christine 🙂 You’re really wearing the heck out of that Tarte foundation, girl! It’s great when you can find something to stick with for awhile, isn’t it? Your dress (or maybe it’s a top) also looks super cute and colourful 🙂 Your Mother’s Day sentiment is so sweet. I lost my mom last November so this was my family’s first Mother’s Day without her, so it was hard. But, we decided to get together and have the usual BBQ and champagne in her honour, and it was very nice <3
Thanks, Cathy! 🙂 It’s a top, actually! I live in t-shirts, and I’ve been trying to find a few fun tops so I look more my age sometimes.
I’m so sorry about the loss of your mother, Cathy! I think it was a great idea to get everyone together in her honor. I am glad it turned out to be nice for you after all!
Super pretty! I love that subtle pop of purple.
Thank you, Melissa!
So beautiful! That lip colour… WOW!
Thank you, Chelsea!
That eye makeup is gorgeous! I’d love to know how to achieve something like that with matte shadows.
Thank you, Ann!
You look so pretty!! I love your look. I have that same lipstick shade, but it looks so much better and a bit warmer on you than me. xD
Thank you, An! 🙂
SUCH a fan of this look! You look so pretty and classy. I’m going to try to recreate it today.
Thanks a lot, Grace!
