A Makeup and Beauty Blog Giveaway

OH! I’m watching one of Rick Steve’s travel programs for Paris on PBS as I type this (he was just at the Musee Rodin) and would so LOVE to be sipping my hot coffee at a Parisian cafe…

That would be nice. :)

Rise and shine, morning glory! It’s going to be a beautiful day. I hope you have something nice lined up, or at least don’t have a ton of chores to do today. I should do a little cleaning and finish decorating the tree…but I really don’t want to. I’d rather futz around and play.

Have a wonderful weekend, OK? If I keep watching this program, I’m never gonna get anything productive done, so I’d better hop to it. The treadmill is calling my name… “Karen!? Aren’t you going to run on me?? You’re supposed to run on me today!!”

Haha! I made myself laugh.

    I visited the Chicago Planetarium last summer! And as for paintings on my walls, a close friend from middle school gave me a paint-by-numbers for a Christmas present. She was the one that painted it in and it looks so amazing.

  21. Trish says:

    I proudly display my 2 yr old’s paintings in my living and dining room! I have a glass top coffee table in the living room and I place her paintings there. Every time she comes downstairs, she points to her artwork and says I did it :)

    PS., I have a ton of Mac blushes it’s hard to pick just one as my fave!

  22. Dawn Peacher says:

    I’m not to thrilled that we are going to get snow tomorrow and maybe ice too, but my dog will be happy she loves to play in the snow.

  23. Icequeen81 says:

    Well I have been raised in two languages and at school we get taught in another language so here it goes
    Spanish ” Hermoso” , Papimento (dialect Aruba and Curacao) ” Bunita”
    But we get our education in Dutch “Mooi”

    I think the most beautiful bottle I have ever seen is from Christian Dior Pure Poison.

    This weekend will be spent studying for my most stressful final, which is Monday. I have to lead a megacode for my advanced cardiac life support class. 8/
    I just keep thinking about how it will all be over Monday night and my Naked 3 will be on its way to help me celebrate!

  31. Limael says:

    I have a painting by Noah he did a painting of Charis from YouTube it also has a beautiful message behind it.

  32. Malaka says:

    I have a paper and a final coming and I’m procrastinating big time this weekend. In fact I think I’m going to take a nap. Instead of starting the paper or studying.

  33. Ralitza says:

    Beautiful = красив
    That is in Bulgarian and is pronounced krasiv. :)

  34. Step says:

    That Benefit picture is so cute and colorful. Looks like pretty candy that probably tastes pretty bad.

  35. Sabrina says:

    My favorite bronzer is from Benefit! I absolutely adore the Hoola bronzer! :D

  36. Alina says:

    What a terrible day, Karen! I hope yours is better. Beautiful in Polish is “piekny” or “piekna” depending on the gender.

  39. April says:

    I totally waited for Naked 3 to go live on the Sephora website between the 5th and 6th. Does this mean I have an addiction? Haha >_<

  40. Claire says:

    Beautiful = beau (male subject) / belle (female subject)
    That’s in French! ^^

  41. April says:

    My favorite blush is from TheBalm it’s a tie between Frat Boy and Cabana Boy. They’re ah-mazing!

  42. Claudia Davis says:

    I do have paintings on my wall. I go every fall and spring to a local yet famous art school and they have their artists in residence do an auction for 3 Fridays every Fall and Spring. It used to be a lot cheaper to buy before they started putting the auctions online where anyone in the world could buy. No mtter, I bought in the earlier years (about 10 years ago) some gorgeous works for less than 200 bucks.

  43. Megan says:

    Hope I win! I love Sephora!

  44. Linda says:

    Not even a language that I speak, but right after I read the second question, I immediately thought, “bella”. What is up with my brain? I’ve learned a little bit of a few languages in the last decade (French, German, Korean), so it’s funny which translation my mind zooms to.

    I remembering reading that Musee Rodin cafe tip in Rick Steve’s Paris guidebook, but unfortunately decided to skip it. Oh well, maybe the next time I’m in Paris…

  45. sylvia says:

    i love laura mercier blushes!

  46. Tiffany says:

    I ordered the Naked3 palette…hopefully it doesn’t make my eyes look swollen!

  47. CKG says:

    Oh, I should use mine too. Darn lol

  48. Tweakweasel says:

    I’m discovering that I can almost never do a nude lip without some sort of twist on it. For instance, today I decided to top a very pale liner with the gunmetal shade from the Rimmel Kate Moss collection and a random black sparkly lipgloss I picked up for…$2? Yes, very understated indeed. :-P

  49. Carolyn N. says:

    I’m so tempted to get all the Benefit blushes! They look so pretty!

  50. Azzy says:

    in Bangla beautiful is shundor and a beautiful girl is shundori.

  51. Barbara says:

    Last time I went to a museum was four years ago as chaperone with my daughter’s class for school.

  52. Colleen Boudreau says:

    NARS makes my favorite blush.

  53. Maria J. says:

    The Most Beautiful Bottle of perfume have to be my Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir because it’s hot pink and has a nice black bow on it.

  54. Gina says:

    Hi! New to your blog, newish to makeup, and a first time commenter!! I’m really enjoying all of the above so far. Sooo…Spanish was spoken in my home (but I’m really bad at it!) and has a lot of words for beautiful/pretty: hermosa, guapa, linda, bonita… etc etc!

  55. Jennie H says:

    Love all the tips I’ve learned from you over the years and love the Call Me Maybe lipstick!

  56. Deanna M says:

    My favorite blush to use depends on the season. In Winter, I typically grab a rosy shade like Tarte’s Amazonian clay blush in “Adventurous.” In the spring and summer, though, I always go for peach or coral, and my all-time favorite is NARS blush in “Orgasm.” =)

  57. jessica davis says:

    The last museum I went to was the Crime and Punishment Museum in D.C. In June 2013. My favorite part was the Bonni and Clyde exhibits! I would love to win :)

  59. Julie B. says:

  61. Lorraine says:

    fave blushes are made by Estee Lauder, Nars and CKOne(super pigmented!)

    I should go to museums more often. Last time I went was maybe three years ago to the Seattle Art Museum.

  63. tina says:

    yes please!

  64. Noga says:

    In Hebrew, beautiful is “yefeyfe” (pronounced “ye-fey-fe”, emphasis on the “fe”) for a boy and “yefeyfiya” (pronounced “ye-fey-fi-ya”) for a girl. It’s a mouthful, I know :)

  65. Marina Grigório says:

    In my language we say beautiful so “bonita”! And the funny thing is that we say “so what, beauty?” as a greeting, and the answer is always “gem”! ^_^ i’ts like that here in Brazil!

  66. Karla Powell says:

    My favourite brush at the moment is crownbrush hdset! I love it! #dreamskin

  67. Elizabeth S says:

    I really love Mac blushes–well dressed is what I always end up going back to!

  68. Jill H. says:

    I loooove all bronzers and blushes from Benefit, Hoola is probably my favorite though! We have an incredible museum in my area, Crystal Bridges, amazing art and has beautiful walking trails throughout the property! I go a few times a year!

  69. Susan T. says:

    My favorite blush is a classic, Nars Orgasm!

  70. Jill says:

    I have my own photography on my walls… canvas gallery wraps.

  82. doroffee says:

  83. Amber says:

    Thanks so much Karen! YAY Sephora!

  84. Julia Mumme says:

    beautiful in German means ” wunderschön” , English is so much better. :D

  85. kwmechelle says:

    Favorite blush? Well, let’s see. Up until yesterday, it was Cinnamon by NYX. It is gaw-geous up against my brown skin. It’s kinda a dupe for Tangerine by MUFE. BUT, then yesterday happened.

    I was just stopping by the MAC counter for a brush to purchase & add to my collection. Then, I did it. I stopped to “play” in the blushes. Most notably, MAC Raisin. So many YT makeup gurus swear by it’s effect on brown skinned beauties. One swap and I was SOLD. Which is what I said to the sales rep. It made an immediate difference on my everyday makeup look. And that’s what I love about it. It’s a blush that I can wear everyday with any color lipstick or outfit. And for reference, I was rocking MAC Lickable (stunning cream sheen fusia) and the blush complimented it so well. And for that reason, MAC Raisin is my FAVE blush ☺️

  86. Monica L. says:

    I love TheBalm’s blushes but these days I’ve been getting into the Nars ones.

  87. Nathalie says:

    My all time favorite bronzer is Hoola by Benefit Cosmetics. It’s the perfect shade for contouring and the packaging is fabulous.

  88. Stevie Pruitt says:

    My first language was gibberish. Beautiful is “bootyfull” in gibberish.

  89. Mahdi Martin says:

    My favorite blush is Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush. I use it nearly every day even though I have some other good ones. It usually wins out.

  90. Marija Nagulic says:

    Beautiful-is prelepa! :)

  91. Mich says:

    I wouldn’t really call it a talent but, I can pick up almost anything with my toes,lol.

  92. Gabi Marcus says:

    I just picked up the Tarte off the Cuff palette and it is already one of my favorites! I love the idea of having 4 amazing blushes and a bronzer in 1 convenient palette!

  93. Mandy says:

    I was at the Louvre museum in September. Loved it.

  94. Julia Laidler says:

    My favourite cream blush formula is from YSL: I have these little pots in every colour. My favourite power blushes are by Tom Ford.
    Thank you, dear Karen, for the joy of your daily newsletter. Lots of love xxxx

  95. Jackie Sakalauskas says:

  97. Makenna says:

    I have a few different paintings on my walls! I am proud to say that I painted them all myself. One is my monogram, with each letter on a different canvas with a patter, and one with a scripture on the other. They are my favorite decorations because I made them :)

  98. Lynn says:

    I don’t use bronzers… i never blend well enough to make it look natural

    Beautiful in Spanish can be said in different ways like: hermoso, hermosa, bello, bella. :)

  114. Kita says:

    My last makeup purchase was Tartes’s 12 hour Amazonian Clay Foundation. I’m not sure how I feel about it yet… Maybe a few more uses I can make a decision. I’m trying different application techniques.

  115. Tania G says:

    I am in love with 2 blushes currently and have been for quite a while – Benefit’s Rockateur and Laura Mercier’s cream blush in Oleander. Have a wonderful weekend!

  116. Siobhan says:

    I don’t know what the most beautiful bottle of perfume I’ve ever seen is, but I am definitely a sucker for their packaging. Even if I loved the scent, if the bottle was awful I don’t think I could have it out on my perfume display. And there may be a couple I own simply because they are so beautiful!

  117. Mary-Gaëlle says:

    In french we say beau (male subject) or belle (female subject), also I went to the quebec museum of contemporary art about two months ago.

  118. deborah says:

    right now i’m really loving the subtly suntouched bronzer by pixi and the classic orgasm blush by nars!

  132. Jessica says:

    I love all your tips!! What’s your favorite contouring product?

  138. Kayla says:

    NARS is my go to for blushes & bronzer!

  139. Kim says:

    I love the picture at the top of your post! Benefit blushes have the cutest packaging. But i have to say, i just got tarte exposed blush, and it may replace benefit dallas as my go to fall/winter blush. It is such a perfect color!

  140. GB says:

    I recently discovered Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes — no other blush lasts as long on my oily skin. Love them!

  141. Carla says:

  143. Rachel says:

    My favorite blush is theBalm’s Hot Mama

  144. Jeane says:

    When you asked about a museum, it reminded me of a trip I took to Sarasota Florida. I was just walking around in between meetings, it was the first time I had been there. And there was a beautiful old mansion that was being restored, in walking distance of my hotel and you could tour through it, and there was a museum on the grounds also. It turned out to be the home the first Great Gatsby movie was filmed in and the museum had items from Ringling Bros. and Barnum Bailey Circus and owners. I had no idea at the time, as they were restoring it. I found all of this out after I got back home and looked it up. It was a gorgeous museum where you could sit on benches and not just the artwork, but also the marble and woodworking of the building. I may not have all of it exactly right, it was years ago so anyone who lives there, please correct me. There was also a beautiful Christmas display. So it is very much worth the tour. If you are near there, it was worth a visit. I love to walk around towns I visit and find out of the way things. Hope to tour it again some day.

  145. Amber says:

    NARS make the best blush/bronzer!

  146. Joanne E. says:

    I went to a museum a couple months ago… I try to go to Boston’s Museum of Fine Art at least once a semester, since it’s only half a mile from my boyfriend’s apartment!

  169. Cynthia says:

    I love MAC’s mineral baked bronzers… every single day. <3

  170. Natasha P. says:

    Last time I went to a museum was this past summer. I went to a museum called Winterthur in Delaware – it’s the former home of Henry Francis DuPont, and though there are amazing things to see inside, the grounds are free to walk on and are absolutely gorgeous. It’s my absolute favorite. In the spring it’s filled with cherry blossom trees and greenery everywhere. I went several times this spring/summer actually. It’s such a beautiful, quiet serene setting.

  171. Colleen says:

    Nars is my new favorite. I recently bout the one night stand palette & am madly in love. 1st nars purchase & i’m hooked.

  172. Natalie says:

    Wet n Wild makes my favorite blush, Pearlescent Pink! :)

  173. Ambritt G says:

    I love Mac and Nars blushes. I love the Nars packaging it makes me feel fancy and they have some gorgeous colors. And Mac of course has some amazing blushes as well!

  174. reilly kate says:

    I love Tarte blushes and bronzers! and I want to try stila convertible colors soon!

  175. Maren says:

    Special talent: twitching my nose (like a bunny, some say), which, I’m told, not everyone can do.

  176. Catarina Belissa says:

    In my first language (portuguese) beautiful is bonito/bonita, or lindo/linda (the end of the word depends on the gender).

  177. Kathy says:

    Laura Mercier artist pallet, Too Faced A Few of my Favorite things,Nars lip gift set With red lip container, Philosophy $10 cleanser at Sephora and the 5 lipsticks for $50 at Urban Decay.

  178. Cynthia says:

    Hi!!! I cannot remember the last time I went to a museum. I’ve decided that one of my New Years resolutions will be to go to museums and used bookstores alone. To get over that anxiety issue I have with doing things alone.

  179. Sarah Kipling says:

    Benefit make gorgeous and unique blushes! Love their concealers and brighteners as well.

  180. Leela says:

    2 weeks ago… I love museums! I went to MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago). It’s a fantastic museum – people reading this y’all ought to go!

  181. Sydney Arens says:

    I almost always prefer cream blushes to powders because i think they look more natural and sit on the skin better. That being said my favorite blushes at the moment are Stila’s Convertible Colors, I love lillium and peony. However, I am in love with my new NARS One Night Stand Cheek Palette so I have been cheating on my cream blushes lately.

  182. Lulubelle says:

    My favorite blushes are from Estee Lauder – they just make my skin look better!

  188. Justine says:

    I’m planning on going to a museum tomorrow!

  189. Rachel says:

    my favorite blushes are the elf blushes because i’m cheap and i’m always afraid a blush won’t look good on me. they’re amazing for $3 and they have a lot of really great shades.

  190. Sabrina says:

    My favorite blush is made by Everyday Minerals and it’s called Disco Inferno. It’s a very pretty matte rosy shade.

  191. Adia says:

  201. Lynn says:

    Peachy-pink & pinky-pink shades of blush wake me up. Every time I try bronzed I look muddy – can’t get it right.

  202. Martyna says:

    Hi, how are you doing?

  208. Kayla says:

    My favorite thing in the world is my chihuahua Uno who is sleeping on my lap as I read your blog :)

  209. Amy says:

    My native language is English, but I’ve currently learning Turkish, which is ‘güzel’. Both it and the German ‘schön’ contain front round vowels, which are relatively rare in the languages of the world, making the words even cooler. Language is fun!

  210. Maegan Morin says:

    Vous est tres belle :D (belle = beautiful)

  211. Rachel says:

    See, I feel a bit odd because I feel incomplete if I haven’t exercised each day. Especially during the holidays! Definitely not cold if I’m at the gym.

  212. brittany says:

    i love sephora!!!

  213. Rachel P says:

    How do you say “beautiful” in your first language? – BEAUTIFUL!
    Most beautiful bottle of perfume you’ve ever seen? – Apart from the vintage glass from various vanities in timeless classic films, I’d have to say the Jean-Paul Gaultier perfume bottles shaped like a woman’s torso. So breathtaking!
    Who makes your favorite blush/bronzer? – Tarte blushes (all), Too Faced bronzer, Buxom powder blush, Nyx stick blush!
    Do you have any strange and unusual talents? – I can adjust and test ski bindings, and many other ski and snowboard-related skills! I guess that’s not that weird, but still, not tons of women are ski technicians :P Also, I’m really good at accents. Some people say they are, but I actually am (and therein lies the paradox, lol!)

  214. cheridene boucher says:

    i do not have any paintings on my walls

  215. Jenny says:

    TOM FORD blushes are my absolute favourite blushes ever! =D Bronzer….Guerlain makes them best lol

  217. My favorite blush is one from Physician’s Formula. I’ll be buying the exact same one when it completely runs out (right now, I can see pan.)

  218. Whitney says:

    We have commissioned our friend who was an art major in college for a few pieces, and we ended up with a good bit of art from his senior portfolio because he didn’t have enough space for the canvases in his apartment!!

  227. Cheryl L. says:

    I used to be a Set Decorator in Hollywood and my first show that I decorated was “Roseanne”, so I love decorating and beautiful things, including what we use to beautify ourselves! Unfortunately, I became ill and am unable to work any longer. This makes me extremely unhappy as I loved my job! I am now in a wheelchair, but still love beautiful things! And that includes beauty outside AND inside! :D

  228. Debbie says:

    The last museum that I visited was the British Museum in London. It was amazing!

    • Debbie says:

      Sorry, I see you asked, “When was the last time you went to a museum?” So, the British Museum would be about a year ago. …But I just remembered that we went to an art museum this summer, so that would be about 4 months ago. I love going to museums.

  229. Isabel V says:

    I’m not sure it counts much as a talent, but I’m an ear wiggler! It took me an embarrassingly long time to figure that out, honestly. It definitely comes in handy when I’m too lazy to readjust my glasses; I just let my ear wiggles slide those puppies back up my face a little!

  230. Andrea Amy says:

    english is my first (and only) language so I say beautiful as beautiful. I have not been to a museum since i volunteered for my oldest son for a school field trip when he was in elementary school…been at least 10 or 11 years.

    The most beautiful perfume bottles are antique (sometimes hand-blown) bottles with pump atomizers or the kind that has the top that you dab on your skin <3

  236. Esther Geller says:

    In case anyone has very sensitive skin, i have begun using a line of cosmetics called “alima pure”. they are like bare minerals but they have way less harsh chemicals and iron oxides :D

I went to the mall with every intention to avoid Sephora and just get a liner elsewhere but noooo I walked out with the Urban Decay Ocho Loco 2 pencil set and the Vice 2 palette. I didn’t want my new pencils to be lonely. You know what they say…treat yo’ self!

    Too Faced bronzer in Milk Chocolate Soleil is probably my favorite bronzer! First of all the smell of it is AMAZING!!!

Really love how pretty and subtle it looks on with out being too shimmery or bright!

  415. Reg says:

    So far, my favorite blush is Benefit Coralista because it smells SO nice and the color looks really flattering and soft but still pigmented. But the SMELL is just awesome. Sometimes I just take it out and have a sniff.

  416. Meagan says:

    When was the last time you went back to the Philippines?

  417. heather carman says:

    Benefit of course makes the best bronzer and blush! the pigments, how longwearing, and the awesome silky texture. And can’t forget the scent. To me, they smell like kool-aid. I would love to get my hands on the Dallas. I have everyone but that!

    What’s your favorite part about the holidays? There’s a neighborhood across from mine that displays lights on their houses every year. It’s always attracted a bunch of visitors. My brother and I walked from our place last year to see them, which is a far better experience than viewing it from inside your car. The effort these people make to put this together always puts a smile on my face.

  435. Jon says:

    Hi karen, Thanks for having a great giveaway during the holidays. Hope you enjoy your christmas!

    I have this painting on my wall from my acrylic painting classes several years ago. :) I’m quite proud of it even though it’s not an original. I copied it from a photo of a green bottle laying on its side in the sand on the beach. I’m particularly proud of how I painstakingly painted the sand. It actually looks real!

    I got two more weeks before we go on holidays at work (2 full weeks off, woohoo!) and I can’t wait. Your niece Scherbie wants to say hi. “MREOOOWWW.”
