Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, May 17

Published in: Just For Fun

makeup and beauty blog Monday Poll

  1. Mood:
  2. I woke up a little groggy, but I’ve been doing this thing lately where I drink 16 ounces of water first thing, and it really seems to put the pep in my step. I read that the body dehydrates a lot overnight. Yay, water!

    Hardly anyone drank the H-2-ohhh for health reasons back in the ’80s… We must’ve all been walking around like zombies!

  3. Last compliment you received?
  4. “You’re too cute to be this stressed out.”

  5. What do you think of drugstore makeup?
  6. A lot of it is awesome, but there’s some junk out there too.

    Drugstores are great for experimenting without breaking the bank, and they make it easy (affordable) to get on kicks, like my current one for Rimmel and their lipsticks, mascaras and blushes.

  7. Are you a worrywart?
  8. Sometimes, but I don’t worry half as much as I used to — that’s for sure. For me what helps is remembering not to obsess/stress over the things I can’t control.

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. Just Clarins Multi-Active Day Early Correction Cream sunscreen for now, but I think I might try a blue and pink MAC To The Beach look in a few minutes.

  11. What are some questions we should we ask in the next Monday Poll?
  12. Hmm… Any ideas? Maybe something both revealing and strange?

  13. What was the last big life change you experienced?
  14. Buying the condo last year. Talk about difficult! Oh, and there’s another one coming around the corner like a semi truck — I’m turning 35 in a few weeks. :)

  15. What was the last movie you recommended to a friend?
  16. Brothers

  17. Outfit:
  18. Today I’m all about being comfy, so I’m sporting my best black yoga pants, brown tank top and black v-neck sweater.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Try to get in some reading every day, and remember to always focus on the positive.

Bonjour, beautiful. :) Tabs has been doing the funniest thing in the mornings lately. He discovered how much fun it is to make the bed, so he’ll follow me from corner to corner, attacking the duvet and pillows. It’s hilarious!

    1. Mood:

    “Good job at assembly!”

    3. What do you think of drugstore makeup?

    I like it—the trick is to keep experimenting…and don’t be afraid to return anything you don’t like. I use a lot of drugstore makeup so I can splurge on stuff like eyeshadow, blush, and bronzer.

    4. Are you a worrywart?

    Not really; I’m pretty laidback most of the time, and I only get really worried and stressed for like a short period of time…then after freaking out for an hour or so, I’m fine for the rest of the week.

    Eyes: Shiseido Provence (light reddish purple), MAC Silver Ring (dark silver), MAC Phloof! (off-white silver)

    3. What do you think of drugstore makeup? I have a few drugstore brands I check out, Loreal, Gosh, Annabelle and Marcelle have some quality items… and of course Cover Girl Lash Blast.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Maybelline Eyeliner (my everyday one for the past couple of weeks – this is what living out of overnight back will do to you), Mac Triple Yum, Make Up Forever’s HD Blush in Quickie and Nars highlighter (forget which one). Glasses on today, that should explain a lot.
    6. What question(s) would you like to see in the Monday Poll? What are you craving?! Food-wise would be a bowl of soup, something hearty (soups are the same as hugs in my books), shopping-wise, a dress I can wear to work that is cute, professional and not fussy. A hard find.

    3. What do you think of drugstore makeup? ick.
    4. Are you a worrywart? not really – it’s not that I don’t think about things that would worry me, I just try to figure out the worst case scenario and be prepared for it or at least know how I would deal with it.

    2. Last compliment you received? My photo class teacher complimented my processing, which really made my day last week. The boy complimented me in general yesterday, which made my whole year. ;)

    3. What do you think of drugstore makeup? Pretty similar to yours – there’s some great values and certain staples that I’ve found through trial and error, but overall it’s just a nice way to change things up in a cheap way.

    2. Last compliment you received?
    On a top I wore today
    3. What do you think of drugstore makeup?
    It’s okay.. but not amazing. Most of the time, you’ll get products for what they’re worth. If I pay for a cheap eyeshadow, I won’t expect it to be amazing.. and 99.9% of the time it isn’t. I’d rather spend a few extra bucks on better brands in department stores so that I get a higher quality product.
    4. Are you a worrywart?
    If anything, I’m not enough of a worrywart.
    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    Nars Pleasures of Paris Palette (I just use eyeshadow as eyeliner these days)/ Revlon Matte Lipstick in Mauve..? + Philosophy Red Velvet Cake Lip Shine (yum!)/ Mac Fleur Power Blush

    American Beauty

    Yellow Cardigan, Black skirt, tanktop, tights

    To give myself a break more often

    2. Last compliment you received? It was about my cute short hair.

    3. What do you think of drugstore makeup? With mascara and lipgloss (stuff I use constantly), I love it. I can’t justify spending so much money when I’ll need to replace items so often.

    10. Weekly goals: I have thank yous and letters to send out, phone calls to make, have to start meeting with people about supporting me during my internship. Scary!
