I went out Friday night with a bunch of my friends, did NOT get obliterated, and ended up with a nasty cold. I was just hoping that being in the 30+ club and drinking several cocktails were the reasons behind feeling like garbage all day yesterday, but by 5 AM when I woke up unable to breathe from my nose, I knew a cold had made it into my body. Since I can’t test any new make-up today (except the jar of Vaseline that I am applying to lips and outside my nose with a Q-Tip), I decided to catch up on my reading and discovered a Confession of a Beauty Blogger Tag on Nicole’s Beauty Blog. She does excellent tutorials, so read her blog! http://niicolea.wordpress.com/
How many times you wash your face daily?
I wash in the morning when I first get up and in the shower at night with a Clarisonic brush. I also remove my eye make-up and wipe down my face with a Simple cleansing cloth when I get home from work.
What skin type do you have?
In the summer I am straight up oily. In the colder months, I am more combination.
What is your current facial wash?
I wash with Cetaphil in the morning and Sebamed in the evening.
Do you exfoliate?
Yes- at least twice a week.
What moisturizer are you using?
I am currently using Tarte’s Marajuca Oil and I love it.
Do you use eye cream?
I love Clinique Repairwear Eye Cream. I think it works the best.
Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
When I was maybe 11-12, I had some skin troubles but now, I usually only deal with blackheads.
What foundation do you use?
In the summer I use Bare Minerals foundation in Medium. I am currently using Missha’s BB Cream in #13.
How about concealer?
I use Rimmel’s Hide the Blemish concealer. I like it because I am prone to a little redness.
Do you know your undertone colour?
Ugh. Sometimes I think I am cool, other times warm.
What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I love the look but not for everyday. I like them for a night out.
What brand of mascara do you use?
I switch it up. I really like Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara.
Sephora or MAC?
I love Sephora and since they carry a lot of different brands, I usually go there. MAC makes great products, too!
Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
No. I’m not a pro- I just like to play with make-up!
Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
I love, love, love NYX HD Eye Primer. It really is the best I have ever used and very inexpensive.
For the face?
I like Too Faced Poreless Primer. I can even use it alone.
What is your favorite eyeshadow? (colour or shade?)
I tend to use grey or charcoal. I also like other neutrals that have a little bit of shimmer.
Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
I use pencils.
What’s your favorite lipstick?
Sephora’s Rouge Cream is excellent for the price. I love Hot Tango and Sexy Game.
Do you like drugstore makeup?
Yes! There are so many things to try!
Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?
I really should.
Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Dark lip liner with light lipstick. I did that in high school and it needs to go away.
Which celebrity always has great makeup?
I like Emma Stone- always classic.
If you could leave the house using just one makeup item, what would you use?
Mascara because I always carry lip balm and lip balm doesn’t count!
Could you ever leave the house without any makeup?
Yes. I do it quite a bit.
What do you think of makeup? Make-up is a great way to enhance and have fun. I also find that it can have an affect on attitudes.
How many hours a week do you spend writing/editing posts?
I try to write at least an hour a day sometimes less. I have a hectic job and lead a very busy life!
When is it easiest for you to blog?
I tend to blog in the evening after dinner.
What makes writing behind the computer comfortable for you?
It’s fast and I can multi-task.
How long does it take for you to prep a post?
Not very long. I usually write cold and have an idea what I am going to do in advance and take my photos before so they are ready.
