Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 286

Published in: Just For Fun

They say that swans usually mate for life. This couple enjoys snorkeling on Kauai.

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 five years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.

  1. Do you twerk?
    Only on Tuesdays…
  2. What’s the first song lyric that comes to mind?
    “Eliza, oh-oh-oh-oh, please don’t go-oh-oh-oh-oh.” It’s from a song called (surprise!) Eliza, by The Bamboos, my current music obsession.
  3. Do you ever straighten your hair?
    Yup, but only when I have 30-45 minutes to spare for a good blow-out with my T3 hairdryer and a round boar hair brush.
  4. Your biggest current skincare concern?
    Fine lines and wrinkles. I’m 38, and it’s like, I know where this bus is heading, but I’d still like to get there gracefully, if you know what I mean.
  5. Finish the sentence: I feel beautiful when…
    • El Hub’s eyes widen and he smiles when he notices that I’ve done something differently with my look.
    • When I get enough sleep.
    • When I’m on a relaxing vacation.
    • When a stranger pays me a nice compliment out of the blue.
    • When my hair is behaving…or at least isn’t totally out of control.
  6. Current favorite face wash?
    Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser is my jam.
  7. Have you ever been tubing/white water rafting?
    Nope, but it sure sounds fun!
  8. What are you wearing today (hair/makeup/clothes)?
  9. What’s your skin type (dry/oily/combo)?
    Combination oily and dry, with an acne-prone chin.
  10. Summarize your best makeup advice in a single sentence:
    Keep an open mind, and dare to try new products/techniques/looks, because you never know when you’ll stumble upon something you love!

      Aren’t you in Vegas? I’m going there in a couple of weeks!

        hello karen! yes, i live in vegas. my husband is stationed here, so here i am. LoL. i miss nor*cal every day, but vegas has it’s perks. (seafood city!) i’m going home next week, anyway. :D

        i’m not too keen about going to the strip due to my driving anxiety. but i usually make my way there when friends are in town.

        i highly suggest “wicked spoon” at the cosmopolitan, if you haven’t been. i don’t know how the culinary union strike is affecting the food functions at that hotel, but if it’s smooth & running, go to there!

        and there’s “max brenner” inside the caeser’s palace forum shops. the desserts are deeeeeeeericious, and the food is really good, too!

  26. Susan S says:

    2. What’s the first song lyric that comes to mind? I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving, hysterical; I should be allowed to glue my poster, I should be allowed to think. “I Should Be Allowed To Think,” They Might Be Giants. (As borrowed in part from Alan Ginsberg.)

    3. Do you ever straighten your hair? Are you joking? My hair is so straight it nullifies the gravitational curvature of space and destroys any and all constants of non-Euclidean geometry. Put bluntly, my hair is straight, yo.

    4. Your biggest current skincare concern? Why have I not aged in 20 years? And what did the old lady mean when she said I would regret my youth? Sensitive, dry skin combined with my summer breakout. Hot, sunny weather always makes the left side (only the left side!) of my face break out here and there with non-acne bumps. They’re a little painful and take days to go away.

    5. Finish the sentence: I feel beautiful when… My girlfriend looks at me and touches me like I’m amazing. Also, last week when she compared me to Benedict Cumberbatch (LONG STORY!), I couldn’t stop grinning for days.

    6. Current favorite face wash? My private blend of two parts extra virgin olive oil, one part coconut oil, and one part cocoa butter. Next batch, though, I may replace the coconut oil with hemp or jojoba. About once a week, I use a handmade soap exfoliation cleanser. My cleansing is done with an Olay spin brush and a clean washcloth.

    7. Have you ever been tubing/white water rafting? When I was 13, I went water tubing, which is like water skiing, but in a tube. Alas, that was the weekend we found out I’m one bat bite from a vampire. I sunburned so badly I required medical intervention, and spent weeks covered (COVERED) in Bactine. Six weeks later, my skin fell off. I have an amazing story about that, actually. But I’ve been kept indoors since, and for good reason. The sun and I are not friends.

    8. What are you wearing today (hair/makeup/clothes)?

    HAIR: I conditioned my hair because I was too lazy to wash it, then put in some hair butter, dried it, and left it sticking up so I look like I belong at a Sex Pistols concert in Brixton, circa 1977.

    MAKEUP: I overslept and, rather than miss my therapy appointment, I slapped on some sunblock and went. Shame, since I just got three new green eyeshadows (a dark, a bright, and an ultra pale, of course), and samples of powders I want to test out.

    CLOTHES: It’s overdue laundry day. I went out in purple jeans and a long-sleeved black T-shirt (it’s about 98F out–I hate living in full coverage). Now that I’m home, I’m wearing a butchered Ozzy shirt and some old yoga pants. Oh, and I’m drinking my last Mountain Dew Throwback. CAFFEEEEEEEEEEEEINE!

    9. What’s your skin type (dry/oily/combo)? Is Death Valley a skin type? It falls off in pieces if I don’t treat it properly. No, not flakes. PIECES. It’s also sensitive. I don’t know how much is my immune system flipping out (it does that), and how much is my skin just being a snotty little bitch–or taking after me and being Aspie.

    10. Summarize your best makeup advice in a single sentence: A good, basic powder will save your sunblock and your ass more times than you will know what to do with them.

    3. Do you ever straighten your hair?
    Very rarely. It’s too time-consuming.

    4. Your biggest current skincare concern?
    My weird, unpredictable pregnancy skin! Lately it’s been glowing (let’s hope it stays that way) but my first 2 months of pregnancy were wacky. Dry, breakouts, oily, yeesh.

    5. Finish the sentence: I feel beautiful when…
    I’m just finished getting dressed and ready for the day and everything is fresh.

    6. Current favorite face wash?
    Aveeno Clear Complexion face wash pads. They’re so easy!

Also L’Occitane Cherry Blossom EDT.

    9. What’s your skin type (dry/oily/combo)? Quite dry, but I have a heart condition that makes me sweaty, so summer is very hard because I need to control the sweat, but my skin is still horribly dry. I’m quite red and reactive to almost everything.

    10. Summarize your best makeup advice in a single sentence: Wear what YOU like!

  29. Wendy says:

    3. Do you ever straighten your hair? Used to 5 years ago. Not anymore. It’s terrible for maintaining healthy hair.

    4. Your biggest current skincare concern? Debating on fillers if I loose 10 more pounds. BTW, Botox is your friend if you need it. Used it for the first time last month. Did not see a difference. However, I hardly have any wrinkles at 40+. Will wait a couple more years before reconsidering it again.

    5. Finish the sentence: I feel beautiful when… When my husband tells strangers that he’s been married to me for 16 years. And those have been the BEST years of his life! I finish a workout and my face has a rosy glow.

    6. Current favorite face wash? Cetaphil

    7. Have you ever been tubing/white water rafting? Yes. Love them both for different reasons. Love white water rafting for the workout. Love tubing for the relaxation and scenery.

She used to have a clothing line several years ago. Wished she still had it. Lovely yoga clothes in gorgeous fabrics. My hair is straight from a blow out I did myself this morning.

  32. Maggie says:

    1. Do you twerk?
    I had NO idea: at first, I thought it might be some activity that combined Twitter with something work-related “tweet” & “work”. Until I watched the video. Over 12 million hits. She was very informative and made it simple and easy to follow along. And no, I don’t think I’ve ever twerked but I’ll have to give it a try. Might help with my lower back stiffness and if it does, will add it to my workout.
