Win a $50 Sephora eCard from Makeup and Beauty Blog

Goood morning, glory! Rise and shine! ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re going to have a wonderful day.

I hope you slept well. I feel like I could have slept longer, but you know how it is when you work for a demanding feline employer. The early cat catches the bird. The tabby alarm clock woke me up early because we have to get out there on patrol. It’s bright and sunny this morning, so who knows how many cat intruders have infiltrated the perimeter of the hill…


Oh! — that movie last night? Inside Out? What an amazing movie, animated or otherwise. From this one (part-time) adult’s point of view, I thought it was brilliant. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a movie more thoughtfully present joy, depression, fear, anger and general adolescence, at least not in a way as entertaining as this. I kept thinking, “Holy crap! That’s really what it’s like!” when they’d show one of the characters overjoyed or depressed. Highly recommended for children of all ages. I think it’s right up there with Pixar’s best.

In other news, are you doing anything for Father’s Day tomorrow? My brother and I are taking my dad out to lunch, but I’m not sure where yet. My dad is kind of picky when it comes to food, so we’re going to let him pick the restaurant. Chances are it’ll be something involving charred meat, and I’ll just go with the flow… Hopefully there will be some semblance of veggies involved.

Good luck in the giveaway, my friend. Have a great weekend, and I’ll talk to you soon.

  1. Lyse Davitt says:

    I was 34 when I got my first cell phone!

    My two girls got phones at 14 and can’t believe I lived without one.

    • Gretel Rodriguez says:

      The toughest person I know is my little brother whom was there holding back his tears when my mom died.

  2. jenn says:

    My lazy day makeup look is probably no makeup at all but if I am going out to a quick store run I’ll put on some foundation, mascara and whatever lip gloss is already in my purse.

  3. Jana says:

    My go-to lazy makeup look is either no makeup or just a bb cream/lightweight foundation with blush, mascara and a lip balm!

  4. Trillina Palemi says:

    yes I have good immagination..for example to win a gift card sephora ihihi

  5. Lisa Brown says:

    I would use a good eyeshadow quad the most

  6. Katherine says:

    The toughest person I know is probably my mom! She’s been through a lot, in 1 year she went from stage 3B breast cancer to being practically “cured,” she has had ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease for more than ten years, a lot of financial difficulties, and she had to deal with me as a teenager! Despite that she’s still able to be optimistic, outgoing, silly and goofy!

    I have a really good imagination, I’m a professional daydreamer!

    Even if I’m just leaving the house to go to the grocery store, I still put on some makeup. I feel totally naked without it. The barest I’ll go is blemish and under eye concealer, tinted moisturizer (the Laura Mercier one has pretty good coverage), tinted brow gel, bronzer, and lip balm. That’s a pretty rare look for me, I almost always wear real foundation.

    I was pretty young when I first got a cell phone, since my house was a few miles from my school and me and my brother walked too and from school every day. My mom wanted us to be safe. I can’t remember exactly how old I was but it was definitely in middle school A pale pink Motorola Razor flip phone! I was the envy of all my friends.

    I would definitely use the 10 pan palette more, since I rarely do the same makeup look more than a few times! I will always pick the more versatile option. I would feel stifled by only having a few shades!

  8. Melissa says:

    I would use an amazing 10-pan palette more, i love trying new things and switching up my looks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Katie says:

    I think a lot of problems I run into with eyeshadow palettes is that so many colors don’t suit ME. I’d rather own an eyeshadow quad with colors I’d use every day, rather than something that I’d only use half of.

  10. Fancie says:

    I got my first cellphone when I was 12. You couldn’t tell me I wasn’t hot shit back then with my Nextel brick LOL. I used to make my mom buy me those Coach phone charms they used to sell every time we went to the outlet mall. As you can imagine I’ve been through a ton of phones since then but funny enough I still have the same number lol

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Karen!
    Lazy day makeup: Tinted moisturizer, swipe of peach or cream colored eyeshadow, mascara and nude lipstick.

    I’m off to MAC at Bloomingdale’s to pick up a couple of the new (but LE – boo!), scented Fix+! My awesome friend and makeup artist saved a cucumber and a lavender for me – so excited to try!

  12. Maria says:

    I was 19 when I got my first phone! I am 35 now and I still have the same number!

  13. Naila says:

    Love the animated movies
    Sometimes i think o enjoy them more than my kids

  14. SzuYing Gillian Cheng says:

    i like following the newest beauty trend, whatever it is, it shows that people are more into a new world than being stuck in one place. And I thank all those who create them;)

  15. Kathy C says:

    lazy day makeup is still foundation and powder for me but I’m fine to skip everything else. Thanks for the giveaway. I’m excited to see Inside Out. Thanks for the mini review

  16. Chelsea says:

    Yes I know how that goes. My employer is a 4 month old baby who doesn’t care if mom gets sleep ;p.

  17. Joan says:

    Whatโ€™s your go-to lazy day makeup look? Sunscreen (I like the brightening effect) + Mascara + a Red lip pencil or tint.

  18. Jess says:

    My grandmother is the toughest person I know. She came here from India in the 60s and had to be the sole bread winner in her family while fighting sexism and racism. Don’t know anyone tougher than that.

  19. Bea West says:

    My mother is the toughest person I know. She is my mom and dad. I’ve fallen victim to chronic illness, while she powers through her days, fighting the same illness.

  20. Agata says:

    I’d probably use an eyeshadow quad more, provided it had all I needed!

    Happy weekend, Karen! I really want to see Inside Out now!

  21. Rose says:

    My lazy day makeup needs at least eyeliner, eyebrows, mascara and some powder/bronzer!
    Or I just go barefaced and face the world

  22. gabis says:

    My go-to lazy-day makeup might as well be called my everyday makeup because I’m always lazy or late lol and basically consists on bb cream, a little concealer around the eyes, mascara and lipstick.

  23. Stephanie says:

    A good eye quad wins over a giant palette every time! I shut down looking at too many color options. Too much choice!

  24. kerry price-haywood says:

    I have to say my awesome father is the toughest person I know..He always has a positive outlook on life even his father was dying in a nursing home and his daughter (me) could hardly walk because of a ms flare up. I am not sure if that is tough or just plain awesome!

  25. Rosemary says:

    Toughest person I know: Me!

    Re Father’s Day: There will be one of those huge chocolate chip cookie things with, “Happy Father’s Day, Love,” and it will be signed from our two Siamese cats. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You might want to alert Tabs that ElHub deserves one too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Chelsea says:

    Go-to lazy makeup (I often wear this to work, LOL) is tinted sunscreen, undereye concealer, brows, Chanel Stylo Waterproof Khaki Prรฉcieux eyeliner, and mascara.

  27. debbie says:

    I was 27 when I got my first cellph Weird I know but I just didnt need one. I still dont I use it when Im out to answer calls and then it goes off again and I answer the land line. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the chance to win Have lovely week from me in New Zealand

  28. Yasmine choudhry says:

    When i was 17

  29. I think I was about 20 when I got my first cell phone. We had one of those bag phones in our car when I was a teenager. We were living upper middle class on a lower middle class budget, I guess! haha!

  30. Tiffany says:

    I got my first cell phone when I was 19 (2006). It is a Motorola E398 model. I dropped it multiple times but amazingly it still can be used to answer phone and SMS till now ๐Ÿ™‚ 10 years!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  31. Anna K. says:

    On days when I’m just not feeling putting on a lot of makeup, when I’ve only got a couple minutes, I’ll still put on powder (I have really oily skin, and my lotion tends to make me a little shiny), and I’ve got a tinted lip balm. A slightly fancier version of that includes eyeliner, and then maybe some mascara depending on how dramatic my eyeliner is.

  32. Lauren says:

    Charred meat…we have the same dad!!

    I was 22 when I got my 1st cell phone and cried out of frustration trying to figure it out! I was allowed 10 minutes per month of talk time!

  33. Tiffanie says:

    My go-to lazy day look usually gets too involved. I start thinking about the three or four items I plan to use and then I end up adding and adding…

  34. Vanessa says:

    Good morning everyone!
    Today I’m trying to decompress from work drama. Good luck to you and yours!

  35. Noon says:

    Man of course I have a good imagination, I had to get through mindless hours of cleaning as a hotel maid somehow! It was a lot of fun actually that way, kinda relaxing.
    Noon recently posted … scaredy cat cosmetics: no scare here, but a solid “meh”.

  36. susan says:

    Toughest person I know ~ my grandma!

  37. Janet A says:

    I was in my 20s when I got my first cell phone and I’m really dating myself here by saying it was one of those big bag phones!

  38. Hajara says:

    My imagination is what I would say “crazy”! One of the biggest reasons why you can always find me lost in my own little bubble.

  39. Judes says:

    I’d rather have a good eyeshadow quad than a palette. Actually I have a 6-shadow palette from NARS from Fall 2013 that I still use and love!

  40. Karenine says:

    I’d use a good eyeshadow quad! Sometimes too much is overwhelming!

  41. Carla says:

    I was 20 when I got my first cell phone. That was 20 years ago!

  42. Cyndi says:

    My lazy makeup day is either no makeup…. or a bit of concealer on the eyelids with some taupe eyeshadow in the crease, a dark brown smudged against the lash line, some mascara, eyebrows, and if I’m feeling pale a bronzer on the cheeks. Sounds involved but it’s really not haha

  43. Jen C says:

    Lazy-day makeup: BB cream, eyelash curler, brow powder, cream blusher, brightening, sheer lipstick! ALL applied with fingers as I can’t be fussed on a non makeup day!

    I’d definitely go with that 10-PAN OPTION, thank you very much! (What can I say? A gal’s gotta have her options, guuurrrl!)

  44. Elizabeth says:

    I got my first cell phone when I was 14. And I got in a lot of trouble for always going over on minutes and data. Oops!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. Rachel R. says:

    I was around 30 when I got my first cell phone. I hate them. I hate all telephones. I hate talking on the phone. I hate that people can bug me whenever they want. Unfortunately, when you have kids, cell phones are a necessity.

    Up until two years ago, I was using still using my Razor phone. But it was the cool LE magenta one. lol

  46. Lindsay says:

    I was 17 when I got my first cell phone, but we did have family phones we shared before that.

  47. Dia says:

    I was 16 when I got my first cell phone. Thanks for the giveaway

  48. Rachael says:

    I have a great imagination and its certainly over active! HAHA

  49. Virginia says:

    My go to lazy makeup look is nothing more than sunscreen.

  50. Tori says:

    I was 13 when I first got my phone – strict limit set by my parents! Can’t believe how young children are when they have phones these days!!!

  51. Michelle says:

    I got my first cell phone in high school, as soon as I got rid of my first pager! lol

  52. Larissa says:

    Hi Karen ๐Ÿ™‚ what products are you most looking forward to this summer? I can’t wait to try more matte lipsticks!

  53. Pauline Gorczycki says:


  54. Byanka Johnson says:

    No make up look is wearing no make up haha. Toughest person I know would be myself. I have birth to three kids!

    What shade do you use in UD Naked liquid foundation?

  55. Arianne says:

    I was maybe… 14 when I got my first cellphone and it was a beautiful (*cough*) vibrant pink one :’) Young!me was so happy with it though.

  56. Mary Marรญa says:

    I had my first cell phone when I was 16.

  57. Sarah W says:

    I guess my lazy go-to is champagne or gold eyeshadow all over with purple or brown eyeliner, tinted moisturizer, and Pink Truffle lip butter. And judging by my current use definitely the 10-pan…

  58. Colleen Boudreau says:

    I got my first cell phone on my 14th birthday, it was an old school Nokia! But it got stolen about 2 weeks later lol.

  59. Karen says:

    My lazy day makeup is concealer, mascara and tinted lip balm…..gets me out the door really quickly.

  60. For Father’s Day, I’ll be making pancakes for the husband (unless he wants something else) and taking the toddler grocery shopping so he can have a little time to himself at home. Funny how when they’re little you just want a break from them because it’s so intense, but when they’re older I’m sure I’ll be begging them to spend time with me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  61. Doreena says:

    Have a great weekend Y’all & a very Happy Fathers day to all the Dad’s out there, living, deceased, Mom’s who are both pet Dads etc.. <3

  62. Michelle says:

    My go to look is no makeup at all! Putting it on every day becomes such a headache, especially when removing it at night

  63. Mary W says:

    The toughest person I know is my college roommate who has been through hell and back many times and come out stronger every time. She even competes in biathlons now and wins! And we’re old too! Run strong girl!

  64. Sandy says:

    I got my first cell phone when I was 40 and my daughter was done with her entrance level phone. I have since updated but still don’t have a big cell phone package, just the basics. Love your giveaways Karen, hope you have a lovely weekend in the sunshine.

  65. Kecia S. says:

    I got my first cell phone at 21, although it was technically for my mom. My phone came at 22; I got it through my first job.

    I think an amazing 10-pallette provides more options, by a quad is easier to transport, especially if you’re traveling light.

  66. Anastassia says:

    I usually wear only sunscreen and mascara when lazy and a lip balm. I got my first cell phone when I was 17. Have a great weekend!

  67. Andrea Darst says:

    I got my first cell phone at age 16 – I paid for it myself, and have had the same phone number since!

  68. Kathy says:

    I would use a good quad over a 10 pan palette anyday, I am challenged by too much selection . Thanks Kathhy

  69. Laurinha says:

    Hi Karen, have a nice weekend!

  70. Sophie Bird says:

    I got my first smart phone at the end of last year. How did I survive so long without one?

  71. Kelly Kimmell says:

    My Mom is the toughest person I know, but in a good way. She has taught my sister and I how to be strong women and keep on surviving.

  72. BJW says:

    I got my first cell phone at age 24.

  73. Irene says:

    I can’t wait to see Inside Out!!! Confession: I cried watching the trailer. LOL #BeEmotionalInsideOut ๐Ÿ™‚

  74. Laura says:

    My go to lazy day makeup look is no makeup at all.

  75. Brwnfruit says:

    My lazy day makeup look is to just wash my face, not even brows. It would be fine if I had brows but I plucked them into oblivion when I was thirteen, lesad face. Lol

  76. Emily says:

    I got my first cell phone when I was 18. My parents didn’t let me get one until I could pay for it myself.

  77. Dalia says:

    My lazy day makeup it has to be concealer, mascara and a little bit of broncer or blush. I can live without concealer, i wish i could, but i have marks of old pimples. I’m 28 and i live in a very hot weather so i’m oily and i straggle with this so i need an advice for what to use no so heavy and that cover my marks. Greetings from Mexico.

  78. BETSY C. says:

    Happy Caturday, pal o’ mine! I’m enjoying the day, and I keep returning to look at my new Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita eye quad. Ohmagarsh…it is so beautiful. Def my new obssession!

  79. Denay says:

    The toughest person I know is my mom – polio at 12, cancer at 19 and still works circles around everyone at 78.

  80. Chelsea Amanda says:

    I slept well. I’m a huge fan of anything Pixar or Disney even at age 22, so I’ll have to look into that one. My best friend is the strongest person I know. She a wife and a mother to two lovely kids!!! She’s gone through so much and is a lovely lady!!

  81. Sanam says:

    I was 18 and off to college when I got my first cellphone.

  82. Amanda says:

    Went to see the new Jurassic Park – “Jurassic World” film last night and considering all the hype surrounding it I feel quite let down. The original was fantastic the second film was great but after that the ideas are old, overused and very unoriginal and repetitive.

  83. Hilary says:

    I’m not sure I would know what to do with 10 shades so I would probably go with the quad!

  84. Aurelie Red says:

    Oh yes I have a very good imagination !
    And I got my first cell phone when I was 16…

  85. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    I would use a great quad eye shadow palette a lot more than a 10 shadow palette – I find myself using the same 3-4 colors on my daytime looks!

  86. chickie brewer says:

    I’m here at the local library.. It is so sad instead of the young kids reading books they’re spending hours on line playing killing games!

    This is the reason why a lot of our kids are terrible students!

  87. sara says:

    I think I was 24ish- late to the game- I think I still had a pager at the time and that was like 2000- 2001.

  88. Sara muniz says:

    The strongest person I know is my father who sadly passed away last year. I couldn’t be more proud of how strong he was during his fight against cancer. Even though I knew he was in a lot of pain he always said he was ok and managed to keep a smile on his face.

  89. buckycatt says:

    Tabs – I am going on a much needed vacation next month, but I’m worried about my bashful kitties hiding from their excellent petsitter. Can you give me any tips on instilling some of your confidence in them? #tabstherolemodel

  90. gina says:

    I guess my dad was one of the strongest people that I knew – then I suppose I’d say myself. I deal with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, depression, and anxiety. Many days are not easy but I keep going. I try to… as of late it’s been difficult. Money’s tight and this world is rough. I really hate this world. I hate cell phones, it’s changed the world. No one talks to anyone anymore. It’s very sad. My latest blog was about exactly this. People don’t make friends – they hide behind this false sense of security these devices give. They’re just few real people anymore – and this s make me intensely sad.

  91. Kris Pope says:

    I can’t wait to see Jerassic World! For e/s, I’d have to go with a 10 pan. I’m always switching it up.

  92. Gloria Jackson-Nefertiti says:

    Whatโ€™s your go-to lazy day makeup look? Red lipstick and dark glasses do the trick!

  93. Stephanie says:

    I have a pretty good imagination when it comes to my cats.

    A big palette wins for me because I like options, with 2 or three palettes I can come up with multiple different looks. And it’s easy when traveling. (I am one that doesn’t skimp on makeup when I travel. I don’t care if it takes up a lot of room. I have a medium sized carry on that I use for my makeup and hair products)

  94. Stephanie says:

    My dad hasn’t said ANYTHING about what he’d like us to do for Father’s Day. I hope it’s quiet – I’m getting pretty tired from running around! But he’s also talking about going to the A’s game. Who knows?

  95. Miki says:

    I love a good palette with options, so give me a 10-pan over a quad any day.
    Miki recently posted … Viseart Paris Nude Palette Review+Swatches

  96. Lala says:

    My lazy day look is usually a ball cap (to hide the scary hair LOL), some blush, lipgloss and a bit of mascara to open up my eyes. Pop on some sunnies and I’m out the door ๐Ÿ™‚

  97. aradhana gupta says:

    lazy day makeup = today….no makeup at all! i had to get out of the house extremely early, so i opted for maximizing sleep as much as possible.

  98. Silka says:

    I am planning on going to the US in a couple of weeks. I will love to have an extra $50 for Sephora

  99. Christy says:

    Hey Karen, glad to hear your glowing review! I really want to see that movie and plan on going to see it with my younger cousin ๐Ÿ™‚ can’t wait!

  100. Rakisha says:

    I think I have a pretty good imagination. I love science fiction movies and comic books, and you have to have a good imagination to suspend all that disbelief. lol. I was also a creative writing major in college.

  101. Arathi says:

    If I win the Sephora ecard, I’ll be like a kid in a candy store as I’m new to wearing makeup after many years! Always loved it, though.

  102. Nicole says:

    10 pan palette for the win. =)

  103. Amoure Jones says:

    Happy Saturday Karen and Mr. Tabs,

    Nothing much going on this Saturday for me but I’ll be catching up on some movies , so I guess it’s a: “Netflix kinda day” for me. Paddington and Still Alice have been set up shop in my home and I’m either going to watch them or see if I can get room and board out of them as long as they’ve been here. I’m looking forward to watching ‘Inside Out’ , because I’m a kid at heart (even at my age) and Pixar never disappoints.
    My go-to lazy day makeup look usually consists of: spot treating w/ a little concealer, few dabs of bb cream, lashes and nude gloss. Nothing spectacular, but it does give me room in case I need to dress it up on the spur of the moment.

    Have a wonderfully blessed and laid back Saturday.

  104. Makyla says:

    Hey there, Karen! Hope you have a fun weekend. My mom is the toughest person I know, by far!! Thanks for offering another generous giveaway

  105. LizzyLovesSatan says:

    pick me!

  106. Kathy Hanley says:

    My Mom is definitely the toughest person I know. She turned 90 this year and has survived 3 of her 5 children who died of heart disease before they even knew they had a heart problem. She’s gone through a hip replacement operation, broke her leg in 3 places last year and now has 9 pins in her leg and is having her 2nd cataract surgery next week.

  107. patricia caradonna says:

    On June 26th, I am celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary with my best friend and sweetest husband.

  108. Gvenda says:

    I’m one of the peeps who think the more eyeshadow the better. Love wearing different colors and I can’t imagine buying quads for that. would have to purchase a ton.

  109. Bianca Rogoveanu says:

    I never had a good imagination !

  110. Lauren Wieland says:

    My lazy makeup look is the look I do every single day!! Nars tinted moisturizer, MAC mineralize skinfinish natural, too faced bronzer, and lancome mascara.

  111. Kay P says:

    I received my first cell phone when I was 70. It was a nice, easy-to-use Razor cell phone. Now I have a “smartphone” – a misnomer if there ever was one! It has taken me a year and a Dummies book on my type of Samsung to try to learn to use it. My fingers don’t make the screen do anything at all – I have to use a stylus. I have been a computer geek for 18 years, but smartphones? I need a dumb phone!

  112. Al says:

    Thanks for the giveaway, Karen! ๐Ÿ™‚

  113. Jackie Cummings says:

    Bobbi Brown is classic.

  114. Cathy says:

    My lazy day make-up is no make-up at all but then I can’t leave the house . I seem to go from one extreme to another cuz if I leave the house then it’s full make-up.

  115. irini says:

    I am trying to be creative, I will learn how to sculpt stuff ๐Ÿ˜€

  116. Lizzie says:

    I would definitely use an amazing 10 pan palette more than a quad. I feel like quads don’t have enough options for me to complete my look, especially when traveling

  117. Lulle says:

    I got my first cell phone when I was 18. I remember my youth in the 90s, when you were supposed to meet a friend somewhere and they were late, you actually had to wait. Imagine that today!

    Hey Karen!
    As an aspiring MUA, I would love a Sephora gift card to keep me on my way to fulfilling my dream! Currently still in school studying and working on my portfolio! Focusing mostly on bridal and fashion, although my mentor worked on “Republic of Doyle” (popular TV show in Newfoundland) as well as multiple other TV shows, therefore, I’m looking forward to shadowing him on set and maybe working more towards TV and Special FX. Right now as a full-time student as well as a full-time waitress, money is tough. A little goes a long way! I would probably buy FX cover drops as I’m dying to try them or maybe sort through the sale items as I’m always looking for a good bargain!
    Lots of love from the little Canadian island of Newfoundland!
    Maybe one day you’ll be reading my blog when I make it big.

    โ€ขWhoโ€™s the toughest person you know?
    Not sure…

    โ€ขDo you have a good imagination?
    It depends

    โ€ขWhatโ€™s your go-to lazy day makeup look?
    Tinted moisturizer with at least spf 20, a little concealer, quick natural eyebrows, blush, and tinted lip balm

    โ€ขHow old were you when you got your first cell phone?

    โ€ขWhich would you use more: a good eyeshadow quad or an amazing 10-pan palette?
    a good eyeshadow quad

  124. Nancy Wallner says:

    Sadly, I doubt I will get to see my dad tomorrow. I wish I could but I am never a priority in his life.

  125. Michelle says:

    Which would you use more: a good eyeshadow quad or an amazing 10-pan palette?

    GAH. SO DIFFICULT! I’d have to go with an amazing 10 pan because I’m so SO fickle with color it’s ridiculous. I can rarely wear the same look two days in a row so a 10 pan palette would afford me a TON more combos. ๐Ÿ˜€

  126. Carolyn says:

    Happy Caturday!

    Toughest person….my boss.

    I’ve a great imagination !

    Weekend makeup….either playing with something new or Bare Minerals foundation, 1-2 eyeshadow, blush, lipstick/gloss

    Would rather have one good quad….haven’t found one yet ….

    Have a great weekend everyone

    My go to lazy makeup is no makeup! If I must I’ll powder my nose, curl lashes and add mascara

  130. Alice says:

    I love your blog!
    I don’t have lazy-makeup days. I love putt on on makeup!
    I have been just using Inglot eyeliner and various mascara samples that I’m loving, like Armani’s Black Ecstasy and Geurlain’s L’Enfer Maxi Lash, with DiorShow primer. xo

  131. Marta says:

    My lazy day is no make up at all!

  132. Sarah says:

    a good quad, for sure! I never use up a palette!

  133. Susan T. says:

    I first got a cell phone when I went away to university. When I was in high school they weren’t really around. I didn’t know anyone who had one until I was about 20, then they became more common.

  134. MelodyJ says:

    I have a great imagination. I’ve come up with so many stories. I wish I had wrote them all down.

  136. Justine says:

    Looking forward to seeing Inside Out!

  137. Jessica says:

    I want to see that movie! I would prob get more use out of the eyeshadow quad. I love palettes, but I never end up using a lot of the colors.

  138. Jen L says:

    Hi there! Happy Caturday!

    Loved your posts from New Orleans btw. I have always wanted to visit (someday!)

    I was 38 when I got my first cell phone and 40 when I disconnected it. I now used it as a tiny computer/ or for iMessages. Really, I don’t phone people very much.

    I would use a shadow quad much more than a palette of 10 unless the palette happened to be all my goto colours – good luck!

    Have a nice weekend. Love to Tabs.

  139. dawn says:

    A good eye shadow quad for sure!

  140. nlm8 says:

    Lazy day makeup—bronzer, lip gloss, and colorful eyeliner!

  141. Kelvene says:

    10 pan ..i always rock different color eyeshadows

  142. Lisa says:

    I would use the 10 pan palette to force me out of my default matte Browns.

  143. Courtney says:

    I was eleven when I got my first cell phone, right before my first away from home dance camp!

    My grandma is the toughest person I know. We just got back from my grandpa’s funeral and she took care of him for three years. She’s also beaten breast cancer. One time she broke her ankle and she was so stubborn that she finished mowing her lawn with the push mower before going to the hospital.

  151. Christiana Mercier says:

    I do adore a good ten pan palette…that way I can take it with me on travels—-and do all sorts of looks

  152. Jessie C. says:

    I always have a good imagination.

  153. Myr says:

    I was 13 when I got my first cell phone.

  154. Melissa Vaught says:

    My lazy day makeup routine consists of black eyeliner and mascara, and light foundation or pressed powder if I’m really in a hurry!

  155. judyo says:

    i have NO imagination, which was proven years ago when my daughter asked me to come into her room to babysit barbie—and closed the door on me.

    my daughter, now a mother herself, has inherited this lack of imagination and when her 6-year old asks her to “play” with him, she said she shudders and would almost rather do her taxes.

    we are both great at reading books, taking a walk or ride, watching movies, discussing problems, etc. with our kids, but NO PLAY. PLEASE.

  156. Meghan says:

    I was 13 when my parents first got me a cell phone, and I’m 28 now so that was 15 years ago! I think it was a Nokia ๐Ÿ™‚

  158. Shannon S says:

    I am pondering donating my hair again to Locks for Love, but I need it to grow another 5 inches, or do I cut it off now?

  159. TJ says:

    1. My mother is the toughest person I know, followed closely by my sister. They embody the saying that courage is feeling the fear but then going ahead and getting things done anyway.

    2. A lazy makeup day is just brows and lip gloss. Just enough to look like I didn’t just roll out of bed.

    3. The 10 pan palette would get more use but only if it were truly amazing. I’d rather have 4 shades I like and will wear than a palette with 10 shades and only 2 I like.

  160. Amy Z. says:

    I have a good imagination, sometimes too good.

  161. Susan Baez says:

    My go to lazy day makeup is mascara. It is a must, especially on a lazy day when I’m not putting on much makeup. Without it, I can expect to be asked if I’m tired or the best one is when Im asked if I don’t feel well.

  162. Sandy says:

    It seems interesting that Fathers Day is tomorrow as my Grandpa was the strongest man I know. He lost his father at age 11 (or so) when his father was electrocuted in a freak accident. He then quit school to try to help his mother and two younger siblings make ends meet. At 17 he joined the Army (war time) but was sent home as he was too young. For years he helped to support them, his own wife and 6 children. He worked his way up the ranks in General Motors…with only that 6th grade education and when he retired at 62 he had a very good job in management. Such a strong, hard working man that passed away one year after his retirement. Miss and love you Granpa.

  163. Tammy Hardin says:

    I think I was 20 when I got my first cell phone.

  164. Ann says:

    Thanks for the review on the movie. I saw the trailer and it looked pretty ingenious and hilarious at the same time.

    Everyday makeup: foundation,eyebrows, powder and a little blush…for everyday less is definitely more in my case.

  165. Nikki says:

    I got my first cell phone when I was 19.

  166. Emily says:

    My son is the toughest person I know. He has multiple, life-threatening food allergies. We have almost lost him three times due to anaphylactic reactions to trace amounts of allergens. We are inspired and amazed, daily, by his resilience and his loving and giving heart.

  167. Susan P. says:

    I was in my 40’s when I got my first cell phone – a flip phone.

  168. TrippyPixie says:

    I got my first cell phone (Nokia flip phone) as an 8th grade graduation gift. And I was grateful! *end ranting* (I work part-time with kids, and it drives me nuts to see 1st graders with their own smart phones.)

  169. Shari says:

    On a lazy day, I would wear mascara, concealer, brow gel, and a pop of cream blush.

  170. nat ogu says:

    my go to lazyda y makeup is moisturizer , laura mercier hydration primer , nars tinted moisturizer , abh eyebrow gel instead of pomade and nars cruella

  171. Aenea says:

    How was the movie and date nite?!

  175. Go-to lazy makeup is pretty much the same as my regular makeup only I do it faster lol.

  176. Daraya says:

    My go-to lazy makeup look (aka when I won’t see anyone that day, haha) is just no makeup!

  177. Tania G says:

    I can’t wait to take my kids to see that movie. I keep hearing it’s wonderful.
    My mom is the toughest person I know. Since early childhood, she faced a very tough and painful life. She’s in constant pain today but she keeps fighting and stays strong. Most people would not even know how much she suffers.
    Have a wonderful weekend and Father’s Day!

  178. Lori P says:

    I would use the 10 pan palette because think of all the looks I could try out to make my blue-green eyes pop.

  179. Valerie says:

    My go-to lazy day makeup is CC cream, powder, mascara and lip gloss! Maybe a little blush if I’m up for it!

  180. Emily C says:

    On lazy days I just put on some concealer.

  181. Sarah says:

    I want to see Inside Out. Sounds hilarious but deep- nice combo, you know? My lazy day make up is all about covering up my dark under eye circles and evening out my complexion. I usually do more but if I must run out before I have time to really get ready I at least do this. Don’t want to scare any little kiddos, most of all mine. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love your blog!

    i got my 1st cell phone when i was in high school in 1997 & ive kept the same phone number since !

  183. Anna says:

    I would use an amazing ten pan palette more often – definitely. I know that because I have several good quads but I find myself reaching for the amazing twelve pan Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist’s palette lately. Yeah a ten pan palette is big but that’s what gorgeous big purses are for, right?

    Lazy day go to makeup is curled eyelashes, maybe mascara, concealer and cream blush ๐Ÿ™‚

  194. Adonna says:

    I’m tough person. But this week was tough to bring the stray puppy outside our yard to the shelter. We took care of him for two weeks. But the circumstances at home are not the best for him,and the other two dogs and also the Rooster,make it not easy for us to keep him ๐Ÿ™ I just hope he is not disappointed.

    Lazy day equals Mac face and body foundation, my favorite nars matte lip or Bobbi brown, topped with a nyx gloss. Curling with Aucoins eyelash curler, two mascaras, lorac unzipped gold palette, and nars madly blush. Easy everyday look that I’ve got down so my husband doesn’t have to wait too long…

  212. Cindy Rosenblum says:

    I think I got my first cell phone at 28-29. It was the kind of phone that was around before a flip phone, a Nokia with the little antenna attached. I don’t know how the hell I had the patience for texting once I got the Motorola Razr, you had to hit the keys 5-6 times until you got the right letter!

  213. Mardi says:

    i don’t remember when I got my first mobile phone. It was after 1994 and before 1997, so 1995 or 1996. So I was 27 or 28. I still have the same number.

    My lazy makeup is none. ๐Ÿ™‚

  247. Ann says:

    I do not have a good imagination.

  248. Laurissa says:

    Lazy day makeup always starts like this: “I’ll just put on some foundation and mascara. It’ll take 5 mins!” 40 mins later: Full Face. Makeup is a creative outlet for me (no matter my destination). Once I start, I can’t stop! So truly lazy day makeup is no makeup at all. I don’t mind going out bare faced, especially if I’m pressed for time.

  249. Joelly says:

    I love your blog! I just started getting into MAC products!

  250. Jordi says:

    My lazy day makeup look still involves some sort of coverage (maybe a CC cream only), eye primer, some highlighting on the brow bone and eyeliner. But then I decide to set the liner and then I figure may as well add mascara, too!

  251. Shyla says:

    I had a cellphone freshman in college. I was a late bloomer and it was one of those Nokia ones. But before that there was the pagers. (I sound so old lol!)

    Make up routine when I’m feeling lazy in a hurry or dont want to make the effort:
    Tinted moisturizer mixed in with becca opal liquid, eyeliner, mascara and lip gloss.

  252. Mariann Hessing says:

    I would use a smaller eyeshadow palette over a ten color palette as there are inevitably a few colors in the larger palette I would never use.
    As far as the toughest person I know, it would be my husband because no matter how many curve balls life throws out at us, my hubby never lets adversity stand in his way. I am a lucky girl to have found such a stand up guy.

  253. Bridget Heiple Reich says:

    I would prefer an eyeshadow quad. Four awesome colors that look good on me are much better than 10 colors I may or may not use. ๐Ÿ™‚

  254. Maria J. says:

    On my 16th Birthday is when I got my first official cell phone and ever since then I’ve has the same number. REALLY have been eyeing the Kat Von D palette so this would be great!

  255. Mariann says:

    I would use a good quad more frequently than a 10 color palette as there are usually a few colors in the larger palette I would never use.
    The toughest person I know would be my husband, because no matter what curve balls life throws out at us, he can always get through them. I am a lucky woman to have met him.
    Second toughest would be my mother (who passed away). She was the ultimate single mother that did her very best to raise 3 of us well. Love them both!
    I had a tabby cat when I was little and my mom told me the “M” on her forehead was for my name. How cute was that?

  256. Farzana says:

    I have been having vivid dreams lately and I don’t know why. I have seen a close family friend the passed away 2xs in the pass week and I can’t figure out why she is appearing to me in my subconscious state. She is happy and beautiful in the dreams but it is confounding because I generally do not recall dreams….Anyway that is my thought to share—I’d love some feedback though. Have a happy, blessed day, guys!

    I got my first cell phone when I was 18 and going to college. Free calls to my parents after 8pm. Lol!

    I would probably use a great quad of shadows more than a 10 pan. I song wear more than 3 shadows at once, most of the time, but I do have some awesome multi-shadow palettes!

  259. Nhu says:

    I prefer to have a good makeup quad rather than a ten pan palette! A quad is ideal for a girl who travels a lot and even though it’s a quad you can probably come up with ten different makeup looks ๐Ÿ™‚

  260. Kristen says:

    My go-to lazy day makeup look is eyeliner and a nude or champagne-colored lipstick.

  261. Ash says:

    I got my first cell phone at 18, back when the scrrens didn’t have color, you had to press the 2 key twice for the letter “B” and they had fun interchangable faces.

    Lazy day makeup for me is mascara and concealer. I have dark circles of death so a corrector under the concealer of course, and just spot concealing for acne scars.

    I have a great imagination because when I am not actively working I am actively drawing. It gives me great peace of mind. I can do m husbands profile perfectly!
    I like a good cream eyeshadow in a bronze or mauve color. I can swipe across my lids then curl my lashes and add mascara. An was go to! And it looks great. Blush and a lippie. I got my first cell phone 10 years ago ( i was 50 ) and I was very happy. I went in my pool with it because I had it in my bra part of my bathing suit.
    I have since upgraded to a smart phone.
    Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads !
    I love your blog, Karen

  270. Ambritt says:

    I always get the most use out of my larger palettes than quads. Its just so convenient to have so many colors to choose from all in one place!

  271. Fabienne says:

    My signature Smokey Eye used to be a hit when it wasn’t so popular! A good eyeshadow quad and I could combine whatever colors to come up with a really cool ombre look. Eye makeup is so much fun!

  272. Lynn T. says:

  275. Shawna says:

    I have a REALLY hard time doing lazy girl make-up now. But in college I did a lot of lazy girl make-up. Gross, I know, but I would start with the fresh canvas of last night’s foundation and powder and apply a light dusting of powder. Then, I would run a mascara comb through my lashes, re-curl them, and apply a fresh coat of mascara. And finish with lip gloss. Voila! Nowadays I’m very black or white. I either go full out makeup or nothing at all. I wish I could settle for a happy medium sometimes! I take pride in my makeup skills and I either want it fierce and fabulous or nothing at all.

    My lazy day makeup is my everyday one haha I love wearing makeup but I hate doing it on a daily basis so I wear as minimal as I can get away with most of the time.

  278. Alyssa says:

    I have been sick since i was 6 yrs old with ulcerative colitis. Ive had 6 major surgeries recently to have my colon large int n partial small int. removed. Ive spent over a 175 weeks in the hospital. And yet the most depressing part with chemo was recently (after 4 years on it) losing my hair! I had long thick beautiful blonde hair, ppl literally would ask if id sell it! And in a matter of 2 weeks it was all gone! I live on disability and medicaid, so makeup isnt in my budget. A smile is my greatest form of makeup! But itd be so amazing to win $50 towards makeup and splurge on myself, and highlight the features that are now all i have without hair. Dont get me wrong i want no pity party i believe its how we take the challenges were given and how we grow from them. Were only as strong as our toughest battle but this would be amazing. โ˜บ๏ธ

  280. Shayna says:

    I think I was 13 years old when I got my first phone :O It was a Motorola Razr

  281. Shelby says:

    I’m super weird, so my lazy day makeup is usually my more outlandish, time-consuming makeup. On a normal, busy workday I often just put some brown shadow & liner on and go, but when all I have to do is go grocery shopping, I’ll do electric blue cat eyes with foundation and brows and lipgloss and the whole shebang. Why not, right?

  282. Cristen Vaughan says:

    My current lazy day makeup routine includes applying Mac Studio fix powder as my foundation, dusting on some Mac Studio Sculpt bronzer in Delicates, curling my lashes, and then applying some Vaseline cocoa butter lip therapy. I can be done in five minutes!

  283. Rachel says:

    I was 15 (a sophmore in high school) when I got my first cell phone. We’d just moved to a new state and I’d gotten my learners permit, so my parents decided it was time for a cell phone so they could reach me better.

  284. Rachel says:

    I got my first cell phone when I was 17, as soon as I graduated from high school (it was 1999). I was starting community college 2 weeks later and it was a half hour away, so my parents gave me one so that I could call if my car broke down. Only had about 30 minutes a month. I was the first of all my friends to get one – now I know 10 year olds with phones! ๐Ÿ˜›

  285. Ellen says:

    Go-to lazy makeup: powder foundation (Nars), blush, and maybelline baby lips in the cherry color

  286. Efrain says:

    I got my first cellphone when I was like 8-9 years and my lazy-day makeup it’s only brow mascara, cream blush and tinted lip balm, but I don’t mind going makeup-free.

  287. Liza says:

    So tell me how excited you are about Jaclyn Hill and Becca collab! That highlighter is going to be so gorgeous omg!!!! I can barely wait!!

  288. monica says:

    I prefer 10-pan palettes over quads any day. I just like to have choices even if I typically end up using 4 out of the 10 pans anyway. I had a pager when I was a freshman in college, it was like a pre-cursor to texting. People were just using it to send jokes, my mom would send messages asking me when I’d get home, etc. Then after about a year, GSM phones became a thing and I bought a second hand Nokia banana type phone (the one in the Matrix movie) and I loved that thing for years!

  289. Jennifer says:

    My mom is an Italian New Yorker and is the toughest person I know ๐Ÿ˜‰

  290. Wendy says:

    My lazy day go-to makeup would be Nars Tinted Moisturizer or Korean Brand BB cream, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer in brightener, brow powder(Milani or Colourpop deep taupe eyeshadow), blush on cheeks(cream or powder), and a lip balm or a sheer color lip product(e.g. Clinique Chubby Sticks). Usually can get ready in like 5 min. ๐Ÿ˜€

  293. Adrianne B says:

    I got my first cell phone at age 28! It was a pink Motorola RAZR!!!

  294. Ashleigh says:

    Hi Karen!
    The toughest person I know is probably my grandma. Valedictorian of her school, went to college, eloped, supported her family, is kind, generous, smart, and funny. Definitely an amazing woman!

  295. Kellyn says:

    I’d really rather use a good quad of shadows than a 10-pan. I’m more into a winged eyeliner than a complex eyeshadow look ๐Ÿ™‚

  296. Heloisa says:

    Whoโ€™s the toughest person you know?
    -Probably myself. Not that I’m a real bad@ass, but I don’t know anyone tougher (resilience wise).
    Do you have a good imagination?
    -Oh, yeah! Reading Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings will do that for ya.
    Whatโ€™s your go-to lazy day makeup look?
    -Vaseline (yep!) on my brows, lips and lashes. Good for chapped lips and for light blondes who want some eye definition but don’t have any time to apply mascara and brow powder/pencil properly.
    How old were you when you got your first cell phone?
    Which would you use more: a good eyeshadow quad or an amazing 10-pan palette?
    -I guess a 10-pan neutral palette would be basically all I will ever need. I have some beautiful, fun single eye shadow colors I almost never wear, so my next big makeup investment will likely be something similar to UD’s Naked palettes (but cheaper)!

  297. Amanda says:

    My fave lazy day makeup look is Mac face and body foundation, a dab of powder, mascara, and then a nice creamy neutral tan lipstick–that I use for blush, lips, and a teeny-tiny dab as eyeshadow. I like the healthy look it gives when I want to do minimal effort.

  298. Kayla W says:

    My go to lazy look is MAC’s Bare Study Paint Pot all over my lids, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, and whatever lipstick I’m feeling at the moment!

  299. Val says:

    When I really need to focus for a deadline, I don’t do my hair or put on any makeup for the entire day. That way, I won’t be tempted to go out. The good news is, it works. The bad news is, every time I pass a mirror, I am convinced something on my face has moved overnight.

  300. Kirsten says:

    I have a cousin who has four kids under 10 and she’s a pediatric ICU nurse. I think she’s pretty tough. And firefighters. Firefighters are my heroes.

    My lazy look is chapstick. It’s all I’ve been wearing lately unless I have somewhere to go.

    It mostly depends on the color and price on whether I’d go for the quad or the palette. Palettes are more versatile, but with quads you don’t really need to think to put together a look, so they both have their place.

  301. Carissa says:

    I think I have a really great imagination, especially when it comes to scary movies/things. I hear a noise in the middle of the night and my imagination runs rampant, convincing me that there’s a zombie apocalypse outside or a T-rex. ๐Ÿ™‚

  302. Lisa P. says:

    I was 22 when I got my first cell phone.

  303. Laura says:

    I love simplicity- so I’m all about the perfect quad vs a 10-pan palette.

    My no-makeup look is concealer, sheer foundation, powder, brows, mascara, eyeliner, nude eyeshadow, and Baume de Rose.

  304. Valerie C. says:

    My mother-in-law is by far the toughest person I’ve ever met! She’s a dynamo ๐Ÿ™‚

  305. Maca says:

    The basics: Concealer, mascara, blush, powder and tinted lip balm. But the laziest is, well, nothing!

    The toughest people I know are my Marine friends. The things they tell me they had to go through! Tough dudes.

  306. shreya says:

    Hey girl, nice questions.

    I would have to say, my favorite lazy / everyday makeup look is:

    1. layer on nars creamy concealer under my eyes, on my chin (damn acne scars1) and some on my lower cheeks
    2. use my absolute fav BB cream, the tinted BB moisturizer from tarte. Ive had this for months and use it everyday and still have so much left! Its amazing
    3. I use either becca skin perfector OR bronzer (nars multiple stick). I usually get too lazy to do both on daily basis.
    4. again, ill use either “they’re real” mascara or kat von d tattoo liner. Too lazy to do both.
    5. spray with urband decay all nighter
    6. apply ciate lip stain in a coral nude

    walk out the door with a smile!

    thanks for this post, amazing website!

  307. Cherie says:

    Lazy day – Perricone no foundation foundation and Burt Bee’s tinted lipbalm. Super lazy day – just sunscreen.

    Toughest people I know – my parents. They left a third world country around the world to give me and my siblings a better life. Because of them, I don’t have to face the difficulties they did.

  308. Marisela Bennett says:

    My lazy day makeup look it consist only of me doing my eyebrows filled them in and define the ends were I lack shape, and maybe mascara with a tinted lip balm and done!

  309. Stacey says:

    My lazy day makeup look is still not particularly lazy. I’ve been enjoying adding a drop of coverfx foundation to a tinted moisturizer and hitting my cheeks and bronzing with the too faced bronzer/blush thing in carrie and big (the peachy one) and a bit of urban decay naked concealer, for my eyes, some winged liner on top, a bright pop of color on the bottom, and some mascara. A glossy pink gloss or balm for the lips.

  310. Johnna Quick Owens says:

    I think I was 35 or 36 when I got my first cell phone. I kept saying that they were silly, I would never use one, didn’t want to be available at all times, they were just so annoying and rude to use in public. Then my wife came home with one for just her, and within a week it was mine, I couldn’t go anywhere without it, it was just so handy! She is still the one that always upgrades and has the newest shiniest toys, while I have one that I have had for 3, almost 4 years, and it needs replaced, but as long as I have one I am happy. Although I keep the ringer turned off more times than not, I just don’t like always being available, but I do like being able to see who called so I can call back later at my convenience. ๐Ÿ™‚

  311. Lorraine says:

    I was 32 when I got my first cell phone. it was a flip phone. still have a flip phone. I think I am on my 3rd one.

  312. Georgia says:

    For my lazy day makeup, I would wear bb cream, brown eyeliner, mascara and powder foundation.

  313. Connie says:

    I got my first phone when I was in high school. Probably 15-16 years old.

  314. Joselyn Hernandez says:

    I think I’d get more use out of a 10-pan, just so many different combinations.

  315. Sally says:

    I loved the movie “Inside Out”! I need to see it again to catch all the little jokes that I’m sure I missed the first time.

  316. Lily says:

    I don’t think I own any quads so I have always used 6-12 pans eyeshadow palettes and singles from Mac (a long long time ago when I just started using make up)

  318. BooBooNinja says:

    Father’s Day with my dad was fantastic this year.
    So many laughs! I love my dad.

  319. y. says:

    Lazy day makeup is bb cream, concealer, powder, a light brightening eyeshadow drop of mascara and chapstick.

  320. Toan says:

    My lazy day look is quickly fill in brows, lip tint and apply cushion foundation.

  321. Alex says:

    I got my first phone when I was thirteen because I started staying after school to be in a play.

  322. Vanna says:

    I’d definitely be using the 10 pan palette over the quad!!! More versatile, more makeup looks!

  323. Renata says:

    10pan for the win! ๐Ÿ™‚ sometimes I don’t understand why bother with mono eyeshadows, thou there are those shades that are just perfect, and you want it so bad but if it’s in a big palette… well, some additional eyeshadow never hurts, will it? ๐Ÿ˜€

Three things: our anniversery was yesterday, fathersday was yesterday, and his nieces birthday was yesterday. How is it possible to forget all three of them? So though, my gooooooood my cat was laughing at me all day long -.-

    Since I need this to purchase the latest Naked Smokey, I’m going with 10 pan palette. Also, I need this to purchase because I’m nearing retirement – so my first cell phone was somewhere in my 30’s. LOL
    p.s. I’m pretty tough, been on my own since 17, found my soulmate at 28 and married him at 30. Still together and still in love (I chose right).
    Oh NO – here comes my boss – chat later ladies! LOL

  330. Lisa Foster says:

    The toughest person I know is my friend Kathi. She has been through a lot in life and always keeps going with a positive attitude.

  331. April says:

    I’m a palette junkie, so I would go for the ten pan! My first prestige brand and palette was TooFaced Naked. I loved it, and I’m a little sad they don’t sell it anymore.

    Also, I’m a huge Disney fan. My husband and I go to Disney World about twice a year, but we are planning a trip to California for the fall where we will take a few days to visit DisneyLand and visit some friends who live in L.A. I’ve never been to the West coast, and I’m pretty excited to see something new! Does anyone have advice about places to see, where to eat, where to shop?

  332. Molly says:

    My mom is definitely the toughest person I know. My go-to lazy day makeup look is a BB cream, a tiny bit of eyeliner on the outside corners, mascara, and Pixi lip balm. I use a 10-pan palette more, but I still love a good quad, particulary for above lazy day.
    Hope your weekend was fab! So happy I stumbled upon your blog a few weeks ago!

    โ€ขWhatโ€™s your go-to lazy day makeup look? brows, eyeliner and blush.
    โ€ขHow old were you when you got your first cell phone? hmm maybe 14
    โ€ขWhich would you use more: a good eyeshadow quad or an amazing 10-pan palette? I tend to do better with quads. maybe the limited amount of options forces me to use my imagination, while a 10 pan palette is like creativity overload for me.

    Karen, I’ve never commented before but I read your blog EVERY DAY. Love it. And I don’t need anymore make up in my life. I think my husband would divorce me. lol So, no more quads, pallettes, etc! And I don’t do lazy makeup. It starts out lazy and then I just keep adding and blending and adding and blending, then I need bronzer, blush, lip liner, etc. So I’ve given up on that dream of ever having “an easy makeup day.” haha

  357. Pamela Haddad says:

    I can’t wait to see that movie, too! Looks so adorable. The toughest person I ever met was my mom, Janet. She had polio when she was 5, and tons of surgeries cuz they didn’t know what it was.

    My lazy go to makeup look is more just to streamline my routine on days off/lazy days.

It’s an easy apply with your fingers kinda shadow that stands on its own. Then I will finish with mascara and call it good.

    I was 16 when I got my first cellphone, which looking back on it was kind of young, but at that point aaaaaallll of my friends had had theirs forever. I was so excited to FINALLY be in the loop. I also am pretty proud that I never got my phone taken up during class ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Whatโ€™s your go-to lazy day makeup look?

    – my go to lazy makeup look is defined eyebrows with blush and mascara and hide my under eye bags with concealer.
    I can’t leave my house without eyebrows at least!
