What was your favorite brand collaboration?

One that comes to mind is Jackie Aina’s palette with Anastasia–it was really fantastic. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What blush shade would you love to create?

I want more satin-to-pearl blushes… period. I’d love a soft coral with a subtle sheen (Tom Ford Love Lust was my favorite… original formula). There are plenty of close-enough shades, but they’re often too matte or too shimmery in comparison. For something more interesting, more traditional... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What highlighter shade would you love to create?

I would love to see a green-gold duochrome highlighter with a finer shimmer to it – a lot of duochrome highlighters are more intense! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What three lipstick shades would you love to create?

Medium-dark ruby red with pearl in a glossier finish that doesn’t get all over your face. A medium-dark, pink-coral base with pink-to-gold shift. Muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with subtle pearl. Really I am just recreating the favorites I’ve lost over the years — Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How do you coordinate your makeup with your outfit?

Since I’m home most of the time… I do not, LOL. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What makes a product worth keeping?

On a personal level, quality has to be exceptional (or the color/finish very unique). More generally, I tend to keep permanent lines of products from popular brands, but I don’t keep most cream/gel-based formulas (like eyeliner, blush, highlighter, etc.) as I don’t find I need to go back into... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

If you could only use one category of makeup, what would you choose?

Eyeshadow. It was my first love, and it would be a terrible time to not be able to use… all the things, but eyeshadow. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How do you incorporate current trends into your routine?

I definitely end up doing so based on trying and testing out more new products than old standbys, so they pretty much incorporate themselves. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What are the most sentimental items in your collection?

Definitely MAC Jealousy Wakes and my Sydney Grace palettes, since they are my “creations” so they reflect the successes I’ve had in this career. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Does price indicate quality in your experience?

Definitely not–I have had plenty of high-end and luxury-priced flops and lots of budget-friendly winners. There are also indies, of course, that are often less expensive than most mid-end and high-end brands and are known for excellent quality, too. I’ve found that price is often reflective of... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How do you resist the urge to impulse purchase?

For the most part, I don’t have to “control” the urge since I tend to buy new releases when they launch. For the occasions where I see a new brand that I haven’t heard of, I try to follow them on social and see how they present themselves, do some research to see if there are any issues from... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How do you handle criticism of your makeup collection?

I feel like it’s so rare to hear criticism now; I think when beauty blogging was newer and YouTube wasn’t so popular, having as much as I do was really jarring. Now, I think a lot of people understand why I have as much as I do and no longer even want that much, LOL! I don’t even add much to... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What was the last product you bought a backup of?

For makeup, it was Urban Decay Perversion 24/7 Eyeliner. For skincare, it was Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream, — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What three limited edition shades would you love to see re-released?

Urban Decay Rebel Vice Lipstick, Chanel Empreinte du Desert, ABH Mario Palette. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What three discontinued formulas would you bring back?

Marc Jacobs Air Blush, Chanel Rouge Allure Laque (the original formula), Bite Beauty Prismatic Lipgloss. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Has your relationship to skincare changed in the last year?

Early last year, I started taking a new medication, and I didn’t realize it for months later, but it actually caused deep, cystic acne and lots of it in places I had never had it. I originally thought it was just from stress (I had a lot going on, plus the pandemic!), but two weeks off the... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Has your relationship with makeup changed in the last year?

I don’t think it has changed much, since I am fortunate enough to work from home normally, so the pandemic didn’t shift how I approached my day-to-day life or how much (or little) makeup I’d wear. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Has a pet ever destroyed a beauty item?

I don’t recall Mellan doing so, and he, in general, was not a destroyer of things (even as a wee pup!) unless it was wood in nature, then he did destroy a couple of things over his lifetime. We have a gate blocking off access to the makeup room for Winston, so thus far, he hasn’t gotten into... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What kind of beauty content do you engage with most?

I’m mostly a lurker and the content I come across tends to be through Instagram, which is mostly new product releases and looks, but I don’t read/watch a lot of review content on purpose (unless I’ve already reviewed myself), so then if I watch a video, it’ll usually be a get-ready-with-me... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What has made you more confident about using makeup?

Practice in general has gone a long way to building confidence! Secondly, I think being more comfortable in my own/with who I am and how I look has done more for building confidence in makeup, though. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What makeup lesson do you wish you had learned earlier?

I wish I hadn’t overplucked my brows when I was younger! I’m lucky mine grew back for the most part, but wow, wrong move, LOL! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Do you layer lipsticks?

I definitely have and do, though I’m more likely to use a lipstick and then a gloss on top to alter color, but if I have something in mind… I will layer to get my vision! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Do you layer your eyeshadows?

Oh, yes! It is often easier to get the right in-between shade by getting a little of that shade and this shade on a brush. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What were the last two eyeshadow palettes you paired together?

Natasha Denona Circo Loco and Natasha Denona Biba. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How important is wear time in a foundation for you?

Important for sure! I’d say that how it wears away/down is second most important; I want something that is long-wearing enough on its own to get eight solid hours of wear with it, but then it shouldn’t just… slide off inelegantly! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How important is wear time in an eyeshadow for you?

My days are spent indoors, often with just my husband or family, so having perfect eyeshadow all day long isn’t necessary but I don’t like touching up or having to worry about things creasing/migrating… and continual fallout is irritating to my eyes! I need something to wear well enough for 10... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How important is wear time in a blush/bronzer for you?

I’d like to see a solid eight hours and then gradual, even fading and some breakthrough shine, but if it goes patchy or disappears entirely before eight hours, it’s a deal-breaker. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How important is wear time in a lipstick for you?

I’m the kind of person who forgets they’re wearing makeup if I’m not testing it, so there’s a good chance that I’d forget to reapply even if it wore off. I don’t want something so long-wearing that it dries my lips out, so I’d say some longevity but I don’t need iron-like wear! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]
Tags: Beauty, Christine, Weekly Features, Temptalia Asks You


What parts of your look do you touch-up?

None, haha! If I wasn’t testing anything, I’d likely add some more powder to take down some shine or reapply a lip color. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

If you had to wear only one highlighter forever, what would it be?

MAC Fairly Precious if I had to choose… it would be so hard to choose, but this is one of those go-to, everyday wearable shades that adds warmth, a touch of color, and shine and goes with a lot of other products. It can be amped up by using it damp or with a fingertip. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]
