The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for October 28, 2013

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for October 28, 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 six years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.

  1. Soup or salad?
    If the soup’s vegetarian, then soup; otherwise, salad…with the dressing on the side.
  2. When was the last time you went to a haunted house?
    It was a dark and stormy night back in 2010…

    Ha! Not really. Well, it was in 2010. It was at a Halloween ball held on an old decommissioned aircraft carrier called the USS Hornet in Alameda (The Monster’s Ball). They turned the ship’s innards into a haunted house.

    Very spooky… Every time we turned one of the tight corners in the bowels of the ship and something popped out of the shadows, I screamed, haha!

  3. Are there any bargain beauty buys you’ve been recommending to all your friends?
    Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Body Butter, babe! Best $4.99 you’ll ever spend (well, maybe one of the best).
  4. For a big event, would you rather have your makeup professionally done, or do it yourself?
    Honestly, even though I think I could handle it myself, I’d rather have it done. It’s one less thing to worry about, ya know?
  5. Pumpkin spice lattes: yes or no?
    YES! Double yes. I’m craving one right now.
  6. Where would you like to see yourself this time next year?
    I would like there to be a new addition to our little family, or to have a baby on the way. Also, to have done more things with our condo to make it more comfortable (it’s only been three years, le sigh…) and to have struck a better work-life balance.

    That’s one of the downsides to blogging, to be honest. It’s easy to go overboard and lose track of time. Pretty soon it’s 10 p.m. and you’re still taking pictures. Happens all the time.

  7. Nudes or brights?
    Brights.
  8. You get to build a four-pan eyeshadow palette for a weekend getaway using any colors from any brands. What do you put in it?
    MAC Soft Brown, MAC Brun, MAC Woodwinked and NARS Night Star.
  9. Last meal you had outdoors?
    Hmm… I think it was two weeks ago. El Hub and I had late lunch at Blue Barn Marin in Corte Madara.

    It was nice. There was a band, and we just sat there and enjoyed one of the last warmish days for a while.

  10. What makeup do you wear when you want to look fresh-faced?
    I’ll fill in my brows, curl my lashes, and coat them with a layer or two of mascara. Then, I’ll usually apply MAC Strobe Cream all over my face, a bit of foundation, under-eye concealer and lip balm. That about does it.

Le List

Now it’s your turn. Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ‘em! :)

1. Soup or salad?
2. When was the last time you went to a haunted house?
3. What’s a bargain beauty buy you recommend to your friends?
4. For a big event, would you rather have your makeup done or would you prefer to do your own makeup?
5. Pumpkin spice lattes: yes or no?
6. Where would you like to see yourself this time next year?
7. Nudes or brights?
8. You get to build a four-pan eyeshadow palette for a weekend getaway using any colors from any brands. What do you put in it?
9. Last meal you had outdoors?
10. How do you do your makeup when you want a fresh-faced look?

Thought you might enjoy this: Sonicaid Music to Inspire Positive Thinking.

It’s not drum circle or whale mating music or anything too out there (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Mostly just soothing instrumental piano that’s supposed to boost alpha and beta brainwave activity, which is supposed to aid creativity and relaxation.

I’ve been listening to it all morning long (happy Monday, by the way) and feeling really positive about the day.

I hope it helps you, too. :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    Soup or salad?
    Soup now that the weather is getting cooler, but always vegetarian soup! I had a delicious spiced chickpea soup for lunch just now.

    When was the last time you went to a haunted house?
    I’m VERY easily startled (to the extent that it’s a running joke among my friends), so I’ve never dared to go into a haunted house. I get the “haunted house” experience of jumping out of my skin on an everyday basis!

    Are there any bargain beauty buys you’ve been recommending to all your friends?
    Most of my friends don’t wear makeup (I’m in a literature Ph.D. program, which isn’t exactly a hotbed of fashion), but I recently convinced a friend to buy a Milani lipstick in Flamingo Pose, a lovely coral-pink.

    For a big event, would you rather have your makeup professionally done, or do it yourself?
    Professionally done–I’m hopeless with eye makeup.

    Pumpkin spice lattes: yes or no?
    I tried my first pumpkin spice latte last year; it was so sweet I couldn’t manage more than a few sips, and I have a huge sweet tooth! I’m going to try another this year, in case that first one was a fluke…

    Where would you like to see yourself this time next year?
    More than halfway done with my dissertation!

    Nudes or brights?
    Nudes for eyes, brights for lips.

    You get to build a four-pan eyeshadow palette for a weekend getaway using any colors from any brands. What do you put in it?
    Maybelline Bad to the Bronze, Maybelline Pomegranate Punk, and theBalm Selfish and Sophisticated (the taupe and shimmery dark brown shades from the Nude ‘Tude palette).

    Last meal you had outdoors?
    I can’t remember–it may have been when I had a veggie burger somewhere in the Marina in San Francisco a couple of months ago…

    What makeup do you wear when you want to look fresh-faced?
    Taupe or soft bronze eyeshadow, cool-toned pink blush, and a MLBB lipstick like NARS Dolce Vita.

    • A well made soup is so cozy and refreshing. I’d definitely go good soup over salad.

    2. When was the last time you went to a haunted house?

    5. Pumpkin spice lattes: yes or no?
    • These used to be my jam, but now they are too sweet for my taste. I love me a pumpkin spice beer though!

    I can’t believe you listed the TJs pumpkin body butter as your fave bargain beauty buy. I’m absolutely obsessed with it! My local store is out & said they won’t be getting more this season at all. I was devastated, only having the one jar. I wound up going to SF for a night & ran into a store there that was flush with them. Bought five more jars!!!

  19. Shannon says:

    1. Soup or salad?
    Soup, please! Especially as it’s getting chillier.
    2. When was the last time you went to a haunted house?
    Y’know… I can’t actually think of the last time I went to a haunted house. Maybe I went to one in grade school or high school, but I sure don’t remember it. I’ve been seeing videos of them this year, though, and desperately want to go to one soon!
    3. What’s a bargain beauty buy you recommend to your friends?
    The ELF eyeshadow primer. It’s not perfect, but for $1…. it certainly keeps most eyeshadow on lockdown through the work day, and that earns it kudos in my book.
    4. For a big event, would you rather have your makeup done or would you prefer to do your own makeup?
    I think I’d rather do my own. I haven’t had my makeup done that often, and I feel like I’m better at capturing my personality than others are.
    5. Pumpkin spice lattes: yes or no?
    Yes, please! But with just a little less sweetener than normal (like, 2 pumps of the syrup if they usually use 3).
    6. Where would you like to see yourself this time next year?
    Hmm. I would like to see myself working 20 hours or less a week at a “day” job, and spending the rest of my time working to make music my full time job.
    7. Nudes or brights?
    Hmmm.. I love me some brights, but tend towards nudes, I think.
    8. You get to build a four-pan eyeshadow palette for a weekend getaway using any colors from any brands. What do you put in it?
    The Shimmering Beige Taupe in Cargo’s Baja color palette (fuh-reakin love that color), bareMinerals Earth (from The Elements palette), UD Grifted, and some chocolatey black shadow… I have in mind the kind I want, but still haven’t found it!
    9. Last meal you had outdoors?
    Probably eating lunch buy the East River, a week or so ago. I’ll take my lunch out there and just sit on a bench and watch the boats and the water go by.
    10. How do you do your makeup when you want a fresh-faced look?
    I generally skip the foundation, but I fill in my brows, use Benefits’ Dandelion on my cheeks (and often swipe the almost-spent brush over my eyelids and under my eyes), go to it with the mascara, and finish it off with some tinted chapstick, Burt’s-Bees-style.

  20. Kylie says:

    1. Soup or salad? Salad, always! I hate hot liquids, including soup.
    2. When was the last time you went to a haunted house? Never– I do not enjoy being spooked. However, I do sort of think my house has a poltergeist. Things have a tendency to move on their own!
    3. What’s a bargain beauty buy you recommend to your friends? I love the elf eyeshadow primer– just as good as TooFaced in my opinion!
    4. For a big event, would you rather have your makeup done or would you prefer to do your own makeup? I’ll only have my make-up done for my own wedding. Getting ready and putting on all my fancy make-up is half the fun of going to an event!
    5. Pumpkin spice lattes: yes or no? Nope– no coffee for me!
    6. Where would you like to see yourself this time next year? I’m pretty happy with where things are in my life now, so in a similar place would be fine. I wouldn’t mind if he put a ring on it by this time next year, however ;-)

    8. You get to build a four-pan eyeshadow palette for a weekend getaway using any colors from any brands. What do you put in it? Ooo, that’s tricky! Urban Decay SWF and Too Faced Nude Beach, Push-up, and Honey Pot
    9. Last meal you had outdoors? BBQ on the water in August.
    10. How do you do your makeup when you want a fresh-faced look? I don’t ever really do “fresh faced.” Probably everything the same without eyeshadow– Smashbox primer, Tarte Amazonian clay foundation, Benefit dandelion blush, Tarte mascara (currently Lights, Camera, Flashes), and UD 24/7 glide on eyeliner.

  21. Jace says:

    1. Soup or salad? Soup! Salad can get a bit boring.

    10. How do you do your makeup when you want a fresh-faced look? I throw on some tinted lipbalm – been using Mega Melon from Clinique’s Chubby Stick collection recently. I also use that as blush sometimes! I also curl my lashes, and instead of mascara, I rub some pawpaw’s ointment on them…it gives a natural finish and my lashes stay curled all day :)

  25. Rachel P. says:

    Oooh, Karen! I love this week’s Monday Poll! I hope you do have a little baby on the way soon! That would be a fantastic for you and El Hub and y’alls family, but it would also be quite the celebration for your M&BB following :) I would so volunteer to babysit if I A) didn’t live halfway across the country and B) wasn’t a total stranger! Anyhow, onto the poll!

    1. Soup or salad? – Either! Whatever sounds good in the moment.
    2. When was the last time you went to a haunted house? – Well, I think I was on a haunted trail 2 years ago. On a boardwalk in the middle of the woodlands. You can hear legit coyotes howling, and the woods are so scary at night!
    3. What’s a bargain beauty buy you recommend to your friends? – This probably isn’t available anymore, but I have the cutest little seashell lip gloss from H&M. Is it quality gloss? Nah. Color payoff? Not really. Natural ingredients? Not willing to bet my life on it. BUT the compact is sooo adorable, it makes me feel like a mermaid when I pull it out of my purse! Sometimes I love packaging just as much as the makeup itself, which can be a dangerous temptation. But I love my seashell lip gloss and it has actually been a conversation starter in the past :)
    4. For a big event, would you rather have your makeup done or would you prefer to do your own makeup? – Like wedding big? Somebody else should probably do it!! Job interview or bridal shower? I can totes handle it.

    8. You get to build a four-pan eyeshadow palette for a weekend getaway using any colors from any brands. What do you put in it? – Kat Von D Vespertine, Kat Von D Unrequited, the darker pink from the Revlon Seashells creme shadow palette, and L’Oreal Infallible in Glistening Garnet. I am about to start investing in some MAC shadows and holiday palettes to branch out a bit more- I hear Brun is a must-have!!
    9. Last meal you had outdoors? – Can’t even remember, I do that a lot! Not much since the temps have dropped in Northern MI though.
    10. How do you do your makeup when you want a fresh-faced look? – Primer, BB Cream (I prime with any foundation or tinted base, my oily skin will annihilate it otherwise!), concealer- to me, fresh-faced is youthful, dewy skin, no blemishes!- a cool-toned pink blush, no heavy contouring, big soft eyelashes, maybe a soft brown liner on the upper lid, a cool matte shadow or blend of shadows, and dewy, rosy-pink lips! Something very innocent and Natalie-Portman-in-high-end-makeup-commercials-ish, or like really really young Brooke Shields, like Blue Lagoon days Brooke Shields.

  29. Katie F says:

    1. Soup or salad?

    Soup, I’m not a big lettuce fan. Unless the salad is something fun like spinach or kale, then maybe salad.

    2. When was the last time you went to a haunted house?

    Never, I am terrified of anything scary, especially when things jump out at you.

    3. What’s a bargain beauty buy you recommend to your friends?

    Can’t think of any, I don’t really have any makeup-loving friends.

    4. For a big event, would you rather have your makeup done or would you prefer to do your own makeup?

    Do it myself, I don’t like sitting still for things like hair or makeup (I always make my mom do my hair for events if I’m home, otherwise I just let it do whatever).

    5. Pumpkin spice lattes: yes or no?

    Out of the Midwest! Preferably back to CA, but at least somewhere where it’s not already 30 degrees in October…

    2. When was the last time you went to a haunted house?
    A looong time ago.

    3. What’s a bargain beauty buy you recommend to your friends?

    I count most drugstore beauty products as bargain buy’s. I personally am very glad I found that the Revlon Whipped Creme foundation works for me and the Revlon Photoready Primer has texture a lot like the Hourglass Mineral Primer. Milani eye pencils, L’Oreal mascara, Rimmel lip liners, the list goes on…

    4. For a big event, would you rather have your makeup done or would you prefer to do your own makeup?

    Depends. I’m sensitive or intolerant to so many beauty products out there so it would be weird to ask an MUA–assuming she’s most comfortable with her own kit. But if they’re familiar or knowledgeable with MY products–I’d love to be primped by someone else so long as I trust their skills and knowledge about my preferences.

    5. Pumpkin spice lattes: yes or no? Yes! But I’m allergic to soy and dairy. So there needs to be an alternative.

    6. Where would you like to see yourself this time next year?
    Hmm…I would be hoping I’m working toward whatever I want to work toward. Trying to figure out which path to take now. And wowsers! A baby?! I totally squealed.

    7. Nudes or brights? Both! Again, why limit myself?

    8. You get to build a four-pan eyeshadow palette for a weekend getaway using any colors from any brands. What do you put in it?

    A weekend getaway sounds like it would be fun–not professional. How about UD Mushroom, UD Naked, UD Absinthe, and some gold shadow (whichever shade goes well with absinthe)? I will of course have a bunch of liners to supplement.

    9. Last meal you had outdoors?
    Turkey Cobb Sandwich Roll split with my brother. Sat on a bench facing the bay on a sunny day.

    10. How do you do your makeup when you want a fresh-faced look? I stick to no-makeup makeup: tinted spf, filled brows, curled lashes, mascara, a little bit of liner, bronzer, and blush plus a MLBB lippie with a slight shine. I’ll powder and conceal/correct as needed.

    2. When was the last time you went to a haunted house? Like a real haunted house? Probably accidentally went there when I was a kid. If it’s sort of an amusement haunted house, possibly around 10th grade (a loooong time ago).

    3. What’s a bargain beauty buy you recommend to your friends? There’s this natural cosmetic drug store brand in Germany, Al Natura. It’s fairly cheap but also very good! So well worth just grabbing a couple and play with it.

    4. For a big event, would you rather have your makeup done or would you prefer to do your own makeup? Get my makeup done by someone I trust.

    5. Pumpkin spice lattes: yes or no? No, not really a pumpkin fan here.

    6. Where would you like to see yourself this time next year? Get my company running and I could hire some people to help me with it (ps: it’s beauty related!)

    7. Nudes or brights? Depends, lately it’s more brights though :D.

    8. You get to build a four-pan eyeshadow palette for a weekend getaway using any colors from any brands. What do you put in it? Oh dear this is hard.. MAC Tweet Me & Spectacle of Yourself (from the Peacocky collection), Armani #2 lust red, Urban Decay Naked.

    9. Last meal you had outdoors? Last week at a yummy Thai place.

    10. How do you do your makeup when you want a fresh-faced look? BB-cream, something like luminizer cream, brows, Rubenesque PP on the eyelids, and tinted lipbalm.
