Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Jan. 26

Published in: Just For Fun

  1. Mood:
  2. Energized! The sun’s out and that always lifts my spirit.

  3. Accessories:
  4. Kelly green headband, silver necklace from the Smashbox Enchantress Beauty Kit and silver hoops

  5. Outfit:
  6. Stretchy jeans and a flowy white top with lace trim and spaghetti straps over a grey tank, grey zip-up hoodie and a dark grey scarf

  7. Eyes:
  8. It’s a Lancome kinda day! I did a simple eye with two products from the Pink Irreverence Collection. It involved a swipe of Lancome Le Stylo Kohl in Confidence Noir and a wash of color over the entire lid using Color Design Pro Illuminator in High Expectations. Then, I gave my lashes two coats of Virtuose mascara, winked at myself in the mirror and said, “holla!”

  9. Perfume:
  10. I’m almost embarrassed to admit this because it illustrates my obsessiveness, but sometimes I try to match the brand of perfume I’m wearing with the makeup I’ve got on. Since it’s a Lancome day I’m wearing Miracle Forever.

  11. Best bra, evah?
  12. For day-to-day wear I like bras by DKNY because they fit me well and aren’t overly frilly or lacy. If I’m wearing a strapless dress, I’ll bust out my trusty Le Mystere strapless bra, which is the only strapless bra I’ve ever worn that doesn’t fall down to my bellybutton after five minutes.

  13. Breakfast:
  14. Coffee and crumpets

  15. First person I talked to today and what I said:
  16. Hmm… does Tabs count? He jumped on the bed first thing this morning and started meowing up a storm. I told him, “Yeah, yeah, I’ll get you your gravy, my liege!” I don’t believe he understands sarcasm.

  17. Have you thought about Valentines Day yet?
  18. Yup. I walked into See’s Candy this weekend and saw one section of the store covered in heart-shaped boxes of chocolate candy.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Read the paper, get all of my schoolwork and freelance stuff done by 6:00 PM so I can work out at night, do *hella* sit-ups in my workouts (I’m freaking out because I saw a picture of a fitness ad with before-and-after shots and my stomach looked eerily like the BEFORE pic)

Just copy the empty list, and paste it with your answers in the comments.

    Hi Tania,

    You are so lucky to have your birthday on Valentine’s! That’s awesome!

    Did you watch last night’s ep? What the heck is going on with Olivia? I don’t know if I would enjoy hanging out with her.

  55. Karen says:

    Hi Gio,

    You wore one of my favorite colors yesterday. I love orange because it always makes me feel happy.

    Have a good Tuesday!

  56. Karen says:

    Hi Rovie,

    That’s SO COOL — a very sweet and thoughtful gift! I don’t watch hockey as fanatically as I did ten years ago but I know that if somebody got me tix when I was obsessed with the game I’d be over the moon.

    We haven’t made plans yet! We aren’t really party animals so chances are it’ll be very low key. Dinner and maybe a movie, probably. πŸ™‚

    Have a good day!

  57. Karen says:

    Hi Caro,

    OMG! You are so cute with your “Infamous” pants. I have an outfit or two like that, LOL.

    Happy Tuesday!

  58. Karen says:

    Hi Vanessa H.,

    Aww, there’s nothing like a pet waking you up first thing. Why did you decide to name your dog Hamlet?

  59. Karen says:

    Hi Violet,

  74. Karen says:

    Hi Shefali,

    I tried one BB Shimmer Bricks in the past and I prefer MAC Beauty Powders. The BB one I tried was too cool for me. The texture of MAC BP’s seems finer, too.

    Good luck on your test! Are you ready?

  75. Karen says:

    Hi Courtney L.,

    A few sunscreens that I like are Oil of Olay Complete, Alba and Neutrogena Dry Touch (love this for my neck). Here’s a link to the review:

    One department store one that I like is Shiseido 55:

    Hi Tiera,

    How long will your brother be with you? I hope your mom wins big in Vegas!

  78. MIchelle says:

    Yes, it’s a great under eye concealer. For blemishes I still turn to my Laura Mercier. It does an instant dissapearing act on any spots I have.

    We’ll be staying at the Hooters hotel. He works for the company (I used to also, it’s where we met) so we’re getting a smoking deal. Are you planning anything special that day as well? It’s only three weekends away…:)

  79. Shefali says:

    Hey Karen –

    Thanks for the Shimmer Brick lowdown. Yeah, I’m returning it. You hit the nail on the head…it’s too cool for me. The BP’s are better.

    I think I am ready. Getting really good scores on the practice tests. But there just always seems to be a tiny little something I don’t know!! However, I’m aiming to just pass. I don’t care what the score is at all. Just get me through!

  80. Holly says:

    Hi Karen,
