The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for May 6, 2013

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for May 6, 2013

You might be wondering, “So what the heck is this Monday Poll thing anyway?”

Well, it isn’t much of a poll. It’s more just a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past four years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.

  1. Do you have very many baby pictures of yourself?
    Not many, because it was the ’70s, before digital cameras made it so easy to accumulate 847 pictures on your iPhone.

    Just one slim album of faded snapshots at my parents’ house.

    I guess I should be thankful that there aren’t more of them, since I’m either half dressed, crying or both in every single pic, haha!

  2. One piece of makeup you wore last weekend?
    Maybelline’s Full ‘N Soft Waterproof Mascara, and thank goodness for it, too!

    I had the worst allergies last Saturday. Something my body doesn’t like must be blooming right now because I could barely see out of my watery, itchy eyes. We went out to a nice lunch up in Yountville, which is up near Napa, so I really wanted to wear something, but I kept my eye makeup to a minimum with just a cream shadow on my lids and a couple layers of Full ‘N Soft Waterproof.

  3. Have you ever been on a road trip in an RV?
    Oh, yes. Have I ever. My parents got a motorhome back in the late ’80s, thinking it would be the greatest thing for the whole family to hit the open road and see the countryside.

    We drove all up and down California and the Northwest states in that thing. I was a tween at the time, and the last thing I wanted was to spend my every waking minute, for days on end, trapped in a cramped space with my parents (the whole teenage rebellion thing, ya know?).

    I remember spending a lot of time sulking in the corner, looking out the windows and listening to tapes on my Walkman.

    Yes, Walkman. :) Debbie Gibson was a fave.

  4. Is there a color of clothing you wear more than others?
    Black! I wear it so often that I could probably pass for a New Yorker.

    It’s easy, slimming, conceals tabby fur pretty well, and I can toughen it up or go super girly, depending on my shoes and accessories.

  5. Do you believe you have a sixth sense about anything?
    I don’t know. Maybe? There have been a few times when I’ve have a very distinct image or clear understanding of something pop into my head, seemingly out of nowhere, and then days later, I’ll see what I saw play out in real life.

    I tend to go with my gut a lot when it comes to big decisions, and it’s usually right (thankfully), so maybe that’s also something like a sixth sense…or just good guessing.

  6. Today, I’m going to ______.
    Finish my work by 5, and try to enjoy each and every moment along the way (or as many of them as possible).
  7. If you could snap your fingers and improve any one aspect of your daily work life, what would you change and why?
    I’d do something about my time management. I have a really, really tough time estimating how long tasks will take, and if I’m not given a strict deadline, I can almost guarantee I’ll lose track of time.

    Or, I’d try to not be so hard on myself (she says after talking about how bad she is as time management, haha). I push myself pretty hard. Probably too hard, and I don’t think its healthy.

  8. What’s one piece of makeup you’ve probably worn a thousand times before?
    MAC Nymphette Lipglass… It was one of my MAC gateway products.
  9. Who are some people (and pets!) in your support system?
    El Hub, Tabs (in his own weird way), my parents and brother, my friends Jen and Cindy, and you, of course. :)
  10. Are you wearing any jewelry today?
    My wedding ring, a silver Tiffany bangle and a pair of long chain earrings.

To complete the Monday Poll, just copy the following list, and paste it with your answers in the comments.

  1. Mei says:

    1. Do you have very many baby pictures of yourself?
    I’ve only seen two. So I’m guessing that’s a no! Haha, I moved to the US fifteen years ago, and have yet to go back to Malaysia! I would love to see baby pics of myself…wonder if I was a diva as much as I am one now…

    2. One piece of makeup you wore last weekend?
    Tarte’s Aqualillies Eye and Cheek palette. I love it! It’s super summery, easy to create day and night looks.

    3. Have you ever been on a road trip in an RV?
    Not an RV, a van though! When my family first came here, we toured through LA and Vegas, then drove all the way back to good ole Texas. Good times…

    4. Is there a color of clothing you wear more than others?
    YES. PINK. In middle/high school, I actually went through a phase where my entire closet was nothing but PINK. I kid you not. Except for the blue jeans. I absolutely love the color. But yeah, that happened. And recently I notice myself buying more pink things…

    5. Do you believe you have a sixth sense about anything?
    Yeah, I believe I can tell how people feel. Maybe it’s bc I studied Communications in college, maybe it’s bc I’m an introvert. But I tend to know when someone is trying to mask their sadness, or hiding any feeling. Good trait to have IMO, and I have yet to be wrong…

    6. Today, I’m going to ______.
    Research research research before my interview on Wednesday! If I get into this program, it would be FANTASTIC. Unemployment looks terrible on me…I cannot be idle!

    7. If you could snap your fingers and improve any one aspect of your daily work life, what would you change and why?
    To actually do something I love and that pays. Isn’t that what everybody wants? I’ve done stuff that pays well but hated it. I’ve done stuff I loved but didn’t get paid enough. Lord Buddha, can we get a nice balance? lol

    8. What’s one piece of makeup you’ve probably worn a thousand times before?
    Maybelline’s Full ‘n’ Soft mascara. I have never steered away since trying this baby out a few years ago, and I’m never leaving! Oh and MAC’s Mocha blush. My first blush, still have it (gross?) lol.

    9. Who are some people (and pets!) in your support system?
    My family, especially my father, who’s been showing major love lately. Not gonna lie, I need it. My friend Janet who graciously allowed me to live rent-free until I get on my feet. Oh and my friend Karen, who’s Filipino and lives in LA! She is absolutely one of my rocks.

    10. Are you wearing any jewelry today?
    Nope, still in bed. There are rando guys here making some apartment updates, and I ain’t leaving until they’re done :)

    Have a great Monday Karen! Hope the rest of your week is as awesome as you are!

  2. 1. Do you have very many baby pictures of yourself?
    My parents have a TON but they’re all in storage.

    2. One piece of makeup you wore last weekend?
    Chanel Eye Quad in Prelude. It’s the Bomb.com.

    3. Have you ever been on a road trip in an RV?
    No but hubs and I have talked about doing on to Yellowstone for years. Maybe someday!

    4. Is there a color of clothing you wear more than others?
    Black and turquoise. Love em!

    5. Do you believe you have a sixth sense about anything?
    Only when it comes to accidents but I don’t think it’s a sixth sense. I think, “I should take the light bulb out of this lamp before moving it.” and I do’t and then I manage to break the light bulb. More that I’m just good at predicting my own clumsiness.

    6. Today, I’m going to ______.
    Have lunch with a friend and dinner with the inlaws. It’s a very social day for me.

    7. If you could snap your fingers and improve any one aspect of your daily work life, what would you change and why?
    Less procrastination. I worry about taking my writing down the “wrong” path and then having to go back and make a ton of changes but then I never get as much done as I want.

    8. What’s one piece of makeup you’ve probably worn a thousand times before?
    Chanel Glossimer in Spark. It always looks good on me. I also still love NARS blush in Orgasm and Smashbox Halo powder.

    9. Who are some people (and pets!) in your support system?
    Hubs, Remy and Mojo the poodles. Although sometimes the poodles are more of a distraction than a support. They’re always there for me emotionally!

    10. Are you wearing any jewelry today?
    Not yet but I’ll eventually be wearing my wedding rings and probably some flashy earrings or a necklace.

  3. Christine says:

    1. Do you have very many baby pictures of yourself?
    A few — most of them are in boxes at my mom’s, but a few years ago my cousins and I scanned in a bunch of old and embarrassing photos of each other growing up…those are on Facebook, of course.
    2. One piece of makeup you wore last weekend?
    My Tarte blush (in Blissful) — love the matte glow it gives my fair skin. :)
    3. Have you ever been on a road trip in an RV?
    Nope!
    4. Is there a color of clothing you wear more than others?
    I go through phases. For awhile it was magenta, then it was green, and now I think I’m back to black (which was great when I was working at ULTA!). I’m trying to mix up color a lot more now, but black is just so slimming!
    5. Do you believe you have a sixth sense about anything?
    Not really.
    6. Today, I’m going to ______.
    Spend my last day of unemployment relaxing…and maybe doing my nails. :)
    7. If you could snap your fingers and improve any one aspect of your daily work life, what would you change and why?
    Even though I start tomorrow, I’m going to say commute. The hour or so on public trans leaves a lot to be desired.
    8. What’s one piece of makeup you’ve probably worn a thousand times before?
    My L’oreal Voluminous Natural mascara. I keep changing and going back (though I’m pretty sure they changed the formula; this tube feels different!)
    9. Who are some people (and pets!) in your support system?
    The SO, Mom, his parents, my BFF, and two cats who are currently trying my patience. ^.^
    10. Are you wearing any jewelry today?
    Just tiny diamond studs right now (those are my “never change ‘em” earrings) and have plans for a green/mint Jewelmint bracelet to complete this afternoon’s outfit. I may still be in PJs at noon.

  4. Alice Ann says:

    1. Do you have very many baby pictures of yourself? No, just a few. I,too, was born in the 70s and there just didn’t seem to be so many photos.
    2. One piece of makeup you wore last weekend? Julep’s nail polish in Lena on my toes. The litte “heat wave” we had in the Bay Area was a great reason to break out the sandals and give myself a pedi. It’s turquoise with a very light golden shimmer, I really love the way it looks.
    3. Have you ever been on a road trip in an RV? Oh, I wish! That sounds so fun.
    4. Is there a color of clothing you wear more than others? Definitely black. It’s just so easy.
    5. Do you believe you have a sixth sense about anything? Not really, but I have a pretty reliable “gut”, I just have to remember to pay attention to its subtle messages.
    6. Today, I’m going to ______. Run errands, cook for the week, take dog to dog park, read my book. Maybe I can sneak in an episode of Supernatural, I’ve just discovered it and am really enjoying watching it from the beginning.
    7. If you could snap your fingers and improve any one aspect of your daily work life, what would you change and why? I like my job, but wish I could work less and go to school full time. I’m ready for a career change and have been working on completing prerequisites for nursing school, I just wish I could go a little faster.
    8. What’s one piece of makeup you’ve probably worn a thousand times before? Nars blush in Desire.
    9. Who are some people (and pets!) in your support system? My partner, dog, parents (especially Mom), and two old friends.
    10. Are you wearing any jewelry today? No, but now that I’m thnking about it, I will put on a ring. I wear glasses and the pair I’ve been wearing a lot lately is pretty ornate, they’re vintage cateyes with rhinestones, so I don’t usually wear jewelry when I have them on.

  5. Ruchita says:

    1. Do you have very many baby pictures of yourself?
    Not a lot. I think my mom has an album of some black and white photos. It’s nice every now and then to actually flip through an album and look through old photos.

    I was born before the digital age too. I actually remember a time before email! :-)

    2. One piece of makeup you wore last weekend?
    I don’t think I wore makeup the whole weekend. I pretty much just bummed around the house. :-)

    3. Have you ever been on a road trip in an RV?
    Nope. But my father-in-law was very brave and took 6 of the grandkids on a road trip from Ohio to the Grand Canyon. I think that was the first and last time he’ll do that. :-)

    4. Is there a color of clothing you wear more than others?
    Black. At last count, I had 6 or 7 black cardigans. They’re all different styles, though!

    5. Do you believe you have a sixth sense about anything?

    Run the vacuum and clean the kitchen floor. Yay me! (not)

    7. If you could snap your fingers and improve any one aspect of your daily work life, what would you change and why?
    I wish I was able to better focus. It sometimes feel like I have ADD and it’s hard for me to sit and concentrate on one thing at a time.

    8. What’s one piece of makeup you’ve probably worn a thousand times before?
    Not really a piece of makeup – but I’m constantly using Chapstick.

    9. Who are some people (and pets!) in your support system?
    My mom and sister-in-law. I’m really blessed that my husband’s side of the family is pretty great. Also, my kitties pretty much always make me smile. Again, so blessed to have those furry babies in my life.

    10. Are you wearing any jewelry today?
    Just my wedding rings and gold, hoop earrings.

    Happy Monday!

    Good morning! Can’t believe it’s RAINING down here! But we definitely need it… too many fires from last week’s Santa Ana…

    1. Do you have very many baby pictures of yourself?
    A few. They stopped taking pictures of me after the divorce, so my photo age stops at 5.

    2. One piece of makeup you wore last weekend?
    Maybelline Color Tattoo cream eyeshadow in Barely Branded — such a lovely shimmery neutral.

    3. Have you ever been on a road trip in an RV?
    No. But we camped in our C-RV — Yellowstone, Bryce, and both sides of the Grand Canyon — 2 years ago — it was an AMAZING trip!

    4. Is there a color of clothing you wear more than others?
    Teal.

    5. Do you believe you have a sixth sense about anything?

    7. If you could snap your fingers and improve any one aspect of your daily work life, what would you change and why?
    My day job has really improved ever since the boss figured out I work better with praise than criticism… so I’m pretty happy. Flexible hours are excellent. A bigger paycheck would be nice, but it might come with strings and I like not having strings.

    Covergirl LashBlast Mascara…it never flakes or puddles or gives me raccoon eyes…

    9. Who are some people (and pets!) in your support system?

    10. Are you wearing any jewelry today?
    Wedding ring, pearl earrings and a “jade” necklace (they told me it was real jade in China, but I suspect it’s really aventurine…still, it’s pretty)

  9. Shannon says:

    1. Do you have very many baby pictures of yourself?
    Yeah, my parents have quite a few! Note as many as kids these days do, I’m sure, but there’s plenty to fuel old memories and reminisce over. I’m still aghast that my parents decided to take a picture of me while I was potty training… literally in the process of potty training. sigh.
    2. One piece of makeup you wore last weekend?
    Benefit’s “They’re Real” mascara. Kept it pretty simple!
    3. Have you ever been on a road trip in an RV?
    Well.. I’ve been on the road in an RV, but it was on our way to a camp site with my grandparents. Not really a road trip per say, but the wheels were on the pavement and I was thrilled to be riding in it WITHOUT A SEATBELT. omgsoexciting.
    4. Is there a color of clothing you wear more than others?
    Definitely black. I feel extra lame when I realize I’m accidentally wearing almost all black (with gray accents, haha) and that it’s a gorgeous spring day outside. whoops.
    5. Do you believe you have a sixth sense about anything?
    hmmm… creepiness? I sometimes get super weird vibes from some dudes. I often feel bad about it, but for the ones I feel strongly about, I (quite often) later find out that there IS a reason I should be… careful around them. So, there you go, I guess.
    6. Today, I’m going to ______.
    go home after work and hang out with my hubby. yusss.
    7. If you could snap your fingers and improve any one aspect of your daily work life, what would you change and why?

    Benefit’s “Dandelion.” Didn’t even need to think about that one, lol.
    9. Who are some people (and pets!) in your support system?
    My husband, my sister (well, all my family, really), a few super good friends in Washington and Montana. Love them all.
    10. Are you wearing any jewelry today?
    a pair of jumbly earrings that I got at American Eagle probably 3 years ago. they have little anchors and a pearl and a bead hanging off the end in a little clump. Love em!

  15. Laura says:

    1. Do you have very many baby pictures of yourself? Oh yea, tons! Most of them are well organised in albums at my mother’s. I was a particularily cute baby and my dad was a professional photographer, so my baby pictures seem to come out of a commercial.

    2. One piece of makeup you wore last weekend? Nars Orgasm blush. It was left at the back of a drawer and I decided it was high time to give it another go. Well, I’m not disappointed.

    3. Have you ever been on a road trip in an RV? Nope. Not sure that would be my thing. Had I been 6 or 7 maybe, but now…

    4. Is there a color of clothing you wear more than others? Navy blue! Goes with everything and flatters my complexion.

    5. Do you believe you have a sixth sense about anything? I don’t know if you can call it a sixth sense, but I can tell whenever a man is trying to seduce me. Most women are blind to these things, they don’t see the signs (unless the guy is being anything but subtle). I can feel if he’s attracted to me. Must be instinct.

    6. Today, I’m going to (actually I just went to) a nutritionist. First time in my life. I’ve decided to readjust the way I eat. If I want to be pregnant someday, I’m gonna have to start loosing those extra pounds now. Later it’s just gonna be too late.

    7. If you could snap your fingers and improve any one aspect of your daily work life, what would you change and why? I would turn myself from lazy to super hard-working. I’d love to be like that. Not counting the hours at my desk…

    8. What’s one piece of makeup you’ve probably worn a thousand times before? Too faced Chocolate bronzer. Such a classic.

    9. Who are some people (and pets!) in your support system? My boyfriend mostly. Then I just like to be on my own. I support myself lol.

    10. Are you wearing any jewelry today? My hoop earrings as usual, and two Morgan Bello bracelets on one wrist.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Laura,

      Glad you gave NARS Orgasm another try. It’s a classic. Have you ever worn it with Laguna Bronzer? The two together work magic.

      • laura says:

  19. Steph says:

    1. Do you have very many baby pictures of yourself?
    Yes. I don’t really like them though. You ever notice that before digital photography, baby photos looked really weird? I guess it was just that you could only get so many shots and you couldn’t preview them.

    There was a beauty event at a local drugstore and I had some of the new Elizabeth Arden collection applied. I am digging the blue eyeliner!

    3. Have you ever been on a road trip in an RV?

    4. Is there a color of clothing you wear more than others?
    Blue and black.

    5. Do you believe you have a sixth sense about anything?
    Sometimes. I sometimes have “predictions” or just know what someone is going to say or what is going to happen.

    7. If you could snap your fingers and improve any one aspect of your daily work life, what would you change and why?

    8. What’s one piece of makeup you’ve probably worn a thousand times before?
    Estee Lauder DoubleWear powder foundation — it’s effortless and gives a natural finish.

    9. Who are some people (and pets!) in your support system?

    10. Are you wearing any jewelry today?
    Just my wedding and engagement rings.

    Have a good week, Karen!
