Temptalia’s Tips

  1. Always take a step back! It’s all well and good to have your nose to the mirror, but make sure you’re also stepping back throughout the application to see how everything is looking from a “normal viewing distance” as I like to call it.
  2. Pull or push colors into the neighboring color.  Depending on the finish, blendability, and lightness/darkness of a shade, I’ll either lightly pull a lighter color onto a darker one, or lightly push the more matte shade over a more shimmery one.
  3. Soft, feathery strokes are better!  Use a very light hand with soft, quick strokes to diffuse color.
