Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 296

Published in: Just For Fun

Happy Monday!

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. Leopard spots or zebra stripes?
    Cat lady says what now?! Leopard spots, of course.
  2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger?
    Not that I can recall, but stranger things have happened after a glass of wine or two…
  3. A movie that scared you as a child?
    Salam’s Lot, HOLY CRAP. I don’t know whose idea it was to allow a bunch of 5-year-olds to watch that movie at the babysitter’s house, but it went down, and I was (and still am) traumatized.

  4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper?
    Yes! I usually fall asleep on my back, but then roll on to my tummy or side in the wee hours of the morning.
  5. Who’s your team?
    THE NINERS!
  6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense?
    I’m not sure… Maybe. I do get a very strong sense of déjà vu sometimes. And there have been a few times when something — a very distinct, unmistakable gut feeling that something isn’t right — has probably saved my life.
  7. How are you at multitasking?
    Absolute crap.
  8. What was the last skincare product you finished down to the last drop?
    I think it was NARS Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-Free Moisturizer… I used it a lot toward the end of summer because it was lightweight, super moisturizing and didn’t give me breakouts.

    It’s probably not moisturizing enough for me now that it’s gotten colder and drier, but I’ll use it again next spring and summer.

  9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be?
    MAC or NARS, for sure. :)
  10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye?
    Hmm… I’ll say 7.5? I think I can handle the basic styles OK, but I’m sure there are plenty of tweaks and improvements I could do.

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. Leopard spots or zebra stripes?
2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger?
3. A movie that scared you as a child?
4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper?
5. Who’s your team?
6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense?
7. How are you at multitasking?
8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop?
9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be?
10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye?

Somewhere between the 49er roll and deep-fried soft-shell crab somebody at the table brought up shapeshifters…

Yes, these are the kinds of deep thoughts my friends and I have while we’re stuffing our faces with sushi drizzled in a nice ponzu sauce.



So yesterday I went to the South Bay to hang out with my girlfriends, Jen and Cindy, and to take Jen to a spa for her belated birthday present, and then afterward we had sushi at this place called Cha Cha Sushi in San Jose.

Jen believes that shapeshifters — assuming they exist, of course — are limited to transforming into something of the same mass, like, the example used at the table was that if you’re a 100-pound girl who shapeshifts into a bodybuilder, you might look like a bodybuilder on the outside, but you’ll only weigh 100 pounds, so you won’t be able to lift as much as an actual 300-pound bodybuilder would…

I guess this makes partial sense to me, since matter is neither created nor destroyed (that’s one thing I remember from my science years), but I think that if you’re already assuming that shapeshifters exist, then you’re already messing with the natural world and its laws as we know them, so I think it’s safe to assume that certain laws are being bent, because hello! — someone is SHIFTING THEIR SHAPE! :)

Unfortunately, we left the issue unresolved because the food arrived to the table…

OMG! So freakin’ good. There’s just something magical about spas and sushi, really. Every day should be a spa-sushi day… Someone needs to print that on a t-shirt.

How’s it going this morning? Do you have a couple minutes to say hi and touch base in the Monday Poll? I hope so. It’s a nice way to get the creative juices flowing, and I always like to hear how you’re doing.

Talk to ya soon!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    • Karen says:

      Hi Twyla,

      It’s funny that you mention that because my friends aren’t particularly girly (one of them, Cindy, is a total tomboy), but they are ALWAYS down for massages, go figure! :D

      How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?

      • Twyla says:

        I have never had a spa day with a gf or by myself,Pedicures yes! but its just me lol. If & when a gf or a sister needs their makeup done, they come to me cause they don’t own makeup & don’t know how to apply it.

  3. Heidi says:

    Uh, duh…. leopard spots, of course!

    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger?

    Maybe to a little kid, not sure.

    3. A movie that scared you as a child?

    I’m a complete wuss when it comes to scary movies, so Wizard of Oz was enough to scar me for life!

    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper?

    Side, with an occasional drift to the tummy.

    5. Who’s your team?

    I don’t follow sports at all. During the Superbowl, I’m glued to Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl… especially the Kitty Half Time Show!

    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense?

    Yes. Phoenix’s Mom can read people’s thoughts. It’s really spooky!

    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop?

    Josie Maran’s Argan Oil Cleansing Oil

    About a 6.5, depending on my patience level.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Heids,

      Been meaning to tell you that the TJ’s Pumpkin Body Butter you recommended has CHANGED MY LIFE. I bought a jar a couple weeks ago and absolutely love it. So thank you!

      Happy Monday and have a great week!

      • Heidi says:

        Glad you love it! When that’s gone you should try their Coconut Body Butter, which is year-round, not just seasonal. It’s awesome, too!

        Sorry I’ve been MIA around here lately. Lots going on. Phoenix’s Mom and I took him to the Pet Expo at the fairgrounds up here two weeks ago in order to have him meet this guy from Animal Planet that was appearing. Long story short, we are now the proud co-owners of an adorable Beagle! She’s a six year old laboratory rescue, was going to be difficult to adopt, and we looked in her eyes and couldn’t stand to leave her there. She lives at Phoenix’s house, but I get her for a couple of hours every day. She’s an amazing, gentle spirit. She is not bothered at all by Missy. Missy, however, is going to take some work. She growls and hisses. Hopefully soon we’ll get them to peacefully co-exist.

  4. Trisha says:

    1. Leopard spots or zebra stripes? I like them both!

    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger? Probably. That sounds like something I’d do. Especially if I was driving past them and knew I’d never see them again. ;)

    3. A movie that scared you as a child? This is going to sound weird, but A Christmas Story always scared me. Even now, at 30, I refuse to watch it. The tongue on the pole thing scared me the most, but other stuff, too. The whole tone of the movie is unsettling to me.

    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper? I start on my back and end up on my side. Then I toss and turn, switching sides all night.

    5. Who’s your team? I don’t have one, so let’s say Team Trisha!

    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense? I think I read people well–I have really good intuition about people. Also, my mom sometimes has prophetic dreams.

    7. How are you at multitasking? I’m great at it!

    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop? I’m not sure, but I’m dangerously close to finishing my Pond’s BB+ cream. I’ll be sad when it’s over.

    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be? Sigma!

    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye? I’d say a 6 or 7. I can do a pretty good smoky eye, but there’s definitely room for improvement.

  5. 1. Leopard spots or zebra stripes? I dislike both
    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger? I don’t think so.

    5. Who’s your team? I only support Nation Teams.
    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense? I don’t think so.
    7. How are you at multitasking? Nod bad, but not all the time.
    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop? Probably something from Clarins.
    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be? Hourglass?
    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye? I’d like to think above average :)

  6. Rachel P. says:

    Hi Karen! I thought about the shapeshifting thing, and I agree that the laws of science are totally bent or ignored when it comes to things like this! I don’t know how I feel about shapeshifters existing, but hypothetically- I bet they could take on any mass or property they wanted!

    1. Leopard spots or zebra stripes? – Leopard, babay!
    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger? – Um, yes. Definitely I have. One time when I was living in France, I was a bit drunk and tried to do the bisous (double cheek kiss) on a stranger in the street. They ran away.
    3. A movie that scared you as a child? – The Witches! It was the movie version of Roald Dahl’s book- the book wasn’t bad, but as a little kid, the movie was terrifying!!
    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper? – Side sleeper, unfortunately! Which is going to give me the worst face wrinkles someday.
    5. Who’s your team? – Detroit Red Wings!
    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense? – I don’t think so- at least, not they’ve told me about! And I don’t think I have one- at least, not one I’m in touch with!
    7. How are you at multitasking? – Like you said- absolute crap. I don’t even try anymore, lol. My style is to put my all into one task, complete it, and then move on to the next one- no matter if the task is big or small. When someone interrupts my current work to throw something new at me that they need done right away, I internally go berserk.
    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop? – The Body Shop’s Seaweed Facial Cleanser and Moisturizer (I finished them about the same time). Nice products, love the seaweed content, but they didn’t work wonders.
    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be? – Too Faced or Kat Von D!
    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye? – Mmmm…. 5. Still lots of practice and experimentation to be had!

  7. Injla says:

    1. Leopard spots or zebra stripes?
    Zebra Stripes, I love everything black and white
    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger?
    A strangers baby, maybe :p
    3. A movie that scared you as a child?
    Paranormal Activity 1 and Evil Dead (Don’t remember which one)I couldn’t sleep or close the washroom door behind me
    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper?
    Tummy sleeper, although I am trying to save my face of all the wrinkles it might be causing
    5. Who’s your team?
    We play cricket where I live. So yeah, the national cricket team, Go Green Shirts!
    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense?
    My fiance, he builds a good estimate about who is genuine and who isn’t. His predictions about people ALWAYS prove right.
    7. How are you at multitasking?
    Just ok. Not awesome like my grandma! She is 70 and can do 10 things at the same time!
    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop?
    Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. It works best on my temperamental skin.
    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be?
    That would be major day dreaming but-NARS! :D
    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye?
    I think I can do a good smokey eye,I would say 7 :)

    Btw, you look so good in that picture, wondering what foundation you have on… Also you and I are the SAME color :p Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation-honey and MAC face and Body-C5 :)So every time I want to be sure about my color in some product, I check up your blog to see if you have reviewed it.

  8. Ruchita says:

    1. Leopard spots or zebra stripes?
    Leopard spots.

    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger?
    I don’t think so.

    3. A movie that scared you as a child?
    The Exorcist – and it still cares me to this day. A more recent scary movie is The Conjuring. Oh my goodness. I literally jumped out of my seat a few times.

    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper?
    Tummy.

    5. Who’s your team?
    Ohio State Buckeyes – undefeated this season!

    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense?
    Sometimes I feel like get premonitions. I will start to feel anxious and then sometimes something bad/annoying will happen.

    7. How are you at multitasking?
    Pretty good. I do it mostly at work – answering emails while I’m on a conference call, etc.

    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop?
    Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Corrector. When I use it consistently it actually works for dark spots on my skin.

    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be?
    Too Faced or Urban Decay.

    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye?
    I need practice – so a 2 or 3.

    Happy Monday!

  9. Stephanie A. says:

    1. Leopard spots or zebra stripes? C–all of the above, and at the same time…
    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger? Um…I do this all the time. Does that make me a psycho? I especially like to blow kisses to people who cut me off in traffic–it totally messes with their minds better than um, other, hand gestures.
    3. A movie that scared you as a child? Its not a horror movie, but Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory freaked me right the hell out! When you think about it, there is A LOT about that movie that’s really sinister and creepy!
    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper? Again, all of the above!
    5. Who’s your team? Skins all the way, baby! Hail to the Redskins, Hail Victory…
    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense? I ALWAYS know when my daughter is up to no good…does that count? :)
    7. How are you at multitasking? I’m actually really good at it–I kind of have to be with my job and as a single mom. That is, until cloning becomes a thing!
    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop? I’m now on my 4th tube of my favorite Embryolisse moisturizer–I use those suckas UP (i.e. cutting the tubes open and scraping every last bit!)
    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be? I don’t think I could choose–I’m such a product whore!
    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye? Probably a 7-8 if I stick with a bronzy/brown smoky eye. If I’m using blacks, greys, etc. that number drops to a -10! Can’t seem to get those blended correctly, and it just looks sloppy/smeared–I look like I’ve skipped ahead of the whole day/night to the next day’s walk of shame! Not, of course, that a walk of shame is an inevitable end to my day or night! Did that just get awkward????

    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger? Oh, probably.
    3. A movie that scared you as a child? Nightmare on Elm Street. My friends and I still won’t watch it!
    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper? Back to side. I used to be a tummy sleeper before the boys; I don’t miss it because those pillow lines on my face don’t fade as fast in the AM as they used to!
    5. Who’s your team? Broncos (for as long as they have Peyton Manning).
    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense? No, I don’t think so.

    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye? 2, and that’s being generous, I think. We didn’t get any pics of my Halloween handiwork but I was glad it was supposed to look scary. HAHA! I got stuck at work and then we had to rush around before hockey. I’m still going to get a pic of the new kitten for Tabs’ approval. Hopefully while he’s still a kitten. He’s growing so fast!

    Oh, and sorry Jen but True Blood proves you wrong. Remember when Sam turned into a fly? He never would have gotten off the ground if he still weighed his human weight. And, surely True Blood could not be wrong. ;)

    7. How are you at multitasking? Pretty good but I often lose focus so one bed is half made and the dishwasher is half emptied b/c I stopped to go check to see what my wild little 2 year old was up to! When I worked at a desk job I was stellar!

    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be? MAC. I actually worked for them in the past and it was great. I loved it. Such a great company to work for in so many ways…NARS or Chanel would definitely make me happy too, I hope to return to that world one day, for now I just freelance.
    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye? Depending on the day, I hover around an 8. Mostly b/c that is what everyone wants so I have had lots of practice in the past few years.

    1. Leopard spots or zebra stripes? Leopard spots! Was it your blog that had a link for a tutorial on how to create leopard spotted eyes?

    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger? Yes, only once and it was meant a silly thing to do as a teenager. I’ve had many thrown to me as an adult. A bit creepy.

    3. A movie that scared you as a child? ALL scary movies! Carrie, Friday 13th, Poltergeist, and many more that I’ve blocked from memory!

    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper? Side

    5. Who’s your team? Flyers, Phillies, and when Vic leaves I’ll resume football and the Eagles.

    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense? I believe I have a sixth sense when it comes to listening to my inner voice.

    7. How are you at multitasking? Pretty darn good

    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop? Skinceuticals C&E Ferulic

    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be? Laura Mercier or Chanel

    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye? Probably a 6.5… good enough that I don’t look like I have a black eye. My husband loves it. I only tolerate a dark brown smokey eye once in a great while. Not good enough to do a decent dark grey or black smokey eye. And, I’m not a fan of dark blue smokey eyes since I tend to look like a victim of abuse.

  39. Alice Ann says:

    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger? No, but I’ve kissed strangers.
    3. A movie that scared you as a child? A Christmas Story terrified me as a child.
    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper? Side, I think it’s the worst for you, too.

    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop? Nars eye primer.
    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be? I don’t think I would enjoy having that job.
    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye? 7 on creating one, but I don’t really like to wear that much eye makeup.

  40. Ashwini says:

    1. Leopard spots or zebra stripes?
    Leopard Spots HANDS DOWN. I own atleast eight pieces of leopard print clothing/accessories and am always looking to buying more of them. :D A fellow feline fan, I am. :D
    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger?
    Yes. Nothing more. ;)

    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper?
    All of them!
    5. Who’s your team?
    Not a sports fan.
    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense?
    All humans have a sixth sense, I think. I hope I do!
    7. How are you at multitasking?

    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop?
    My Garnier facewash.
    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be?

  41. Majick says:

    1. Leopard spots or zebra stripes?
    Leopard of course but I don’t discriminate LOL

    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger?
    In my youth of course, now I’m quite selective. :-)

    3. A movie that scared you as a child?
    Old Yeller? SHiz, I couldn’t watch Lassie as a child(or Flipper for that matter). Now mass people murders? I’m down with that but don’t let an animal stub his toe. KWIM? (Oh, and I did go to see the Exorcist when it first came out – we had to sneak in because we weren’t old enough – I really should have waited…OMG!)

    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper?
    yes

    5. Who’s your team?
    I particularly like the women at ULTA! YEAH! lol

    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense?
    yes and yes

    7. How are you at multitasking?
    pretty good – I’m actually better under “hurried, too much to do” stress. Give me too much time and I don’t do ANYthing. Ugh.

    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop?
    Dr. Brandt V-Zone Neck Cream, Vichey Moisturizer, Clinique Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Remover, DHC Cleansing Oil, and I’m almost down to the last drop of AHAVA Osmotor something or other.

    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be? Oh Dear, Wow, huh, mmm… MAC, Too Faced, LORAC

    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye? Haven’t tried a “real” one in a while but I’d say maybe a 7-8. I say that because as I age it gets harder and harder LOL. Between not being able to see details as well and the skin on my eyes being less than cooperative… you catch my drift. LOL

  42. Katy says:

    1. Zebra stripes
    2. Sarcastically, yes.

  43. Wendy M. says:

    1. Leopard spots or zebra stripes? Leopard all the way, baby. Rawr.
    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger? Never! But maybe once I have a few drinks in me…

    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye? About a 9.

  44. Susan S says:

    That’s actually a very good point regarding shapeshifters. It doesn’t make sense for someone to be able to turn into something with more or less mass than their original form. I understand that magic is involved, but magic without rules isn’t any fun. To some degree, it still has to obey physics, at least in this universe (though Discworld is a special case; on Discworld, magic exists in place of physics, though it definitely has its rules, and it’s in your best interest not to annoy them).

    Your friends and my friends need to go out for sushi sometime. I think we’d have some pretty awesome conversations. :D

    1. Leopard spots or zebra stripes?

    Screech owl feathers, thank you very much! Though I’ll take snowy owl in a pinch.

    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger?

    Yep, sarcastically. :D

    3. A movie that scared you as a child?

    You’re kidding, right? My bedtime stories were E. A. Poe. I got deliciously creeped out by movies. I adored Poltergeist and Something Wicked This Way Comes.

    You know what scared me? The Cold War. I’d watched the news with my parents since birth, and was introduced to the concept of international relations when, as a toddler, I asked why the hostages in Iran didn’t just come home if they were unhappy. I understood the concepts of countries, and war, and killing, and I knew more about WWII than any little kid ever should–hence, I knew what nuclear bombs could do.

    I was a messed up kid. Thankfully, I grew into a messed up but reasonably cool about it adult.

    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper?

    Whatever’s most comfortable on any given day. Also, whatever doesn’t disturb the cats.

    5. Who’s your team?

    #TEAMBOMBUR!!!!!

    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense?

    I’m a major skeptic, but I have a weird ability to know when things are going to happen. I’ll think about people I haven’t seen in years or decades, and I’ll run into them. I’ll think about movies, and they’ll come on. It’s eerie.

    Additionally, I don’t believe in any kind of predestination, but at the same time, I should be dead at least a dozen times over. And I don’t mean, oh, if I’d been going a little faster, that car would have hit me. I mean, on my sixth birthday, I got hit by a wave near SF that covered me by at least three feet, but there was no power behind it when it went out. I swear the Pacific did me a solid. And when I was 16, my pulse rate hit 260–no, that’s not a typo. Fetal heartbeats are only about 240. I should have flatlined. But, no, I was fine by the next day. Things like this happen to me fairly regularly, and I don’t know why. Either I’m really lucky, or Death is really bored.

    7. How are you at multitasking?

    HAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!!! My inability to multitask actually came up in my FORMAL DISABILITY ARGUMENT. That’s bad.

    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop?

    My first spray bottle of pure jojoba oil. I use it to clean and moisturize my skin. It’s a miracle product around my eyes. I swear, that stuff should be sold as an anti-aging product. It gets rid of fine lines like gangbusters.

    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be?

    Does Weta Workshop count?

    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye?

    Depends how shaky my hands are on the given day. Could be anywhere from a 1 to an 8. Bad day, I can barely put on sunblock and powder. On a great day, what color smoky eye do you want? I’ve found that bruise purple with my waterlines rimmed with either burgundy or black kohl (yes, Middle Eastern-style kohl), and my lash lines smudged with charcoal or deep purple gel liner, looks absolutely incredible with green eyes. I’m dying to try a red one with black kohl and liner, or a navy one with black. Traditional gray or black ones are awesome, but what’s the point in doing your makeup exactly like everyone else?

  45. Stephanie Smith says:

    1. Leopard spots or zebra stripes? Hmmmm, leopard spots. But not too often.
    2. Have you ever blown a kiss to a stranger? Yes, mostly to babies! LOL! A few grown ups before I met the husband.
    3. A movie that scared you as a child? I didn’t watch scary movies when I was a kid, but I do know that “RoboCop” was the first movie I watched that changed me, the violence in it.
    4. Are you a back, tummy or side sleeper? Side. Mostly my left side.
    5. Who’s your team? NINERS!!! I married into a 49er family, it is grounds for divorce if you aren’t a niner fan! LOL!
    6. Do you, or does someone you know, have a sixth sense? My friend’s Grandpa was killed in a car accident in the middle of an orange grove that he didn’t own. There was no way at all to be able to find him. My friend, on a feeling, drove to exactly where he was. How she did it, I’ll never know, but I’m so glad that she was able to do that. Also, my Grandpa visited me in a dream a month after he died, it wasn’t a dream, he was actually there, it amazed me at the time, it still does. Very comforting.
    7. How are you at multitasking? If I give everything the same priority, then I’m great. If something is more important than something else, then I forget it. And if I don’t write stuff down, I’ll never ever remember it. Ever. Ever.
    8. Last skincare product you finished down to the last drop? Benefit’s Hello Flawless foundation. I’ve never finished a foundation in my 38 years of life, but this one I really like. It’s light and buildable and really works for me.
    9. If you could be a makeup artist for any brand, which brand would it be? Urban Decay, the colors and names of products, loooove!
    10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your current ability to work a smokey eye? Hmmmmm, probably a 2. I prefer a smokey eye in colors, purples or olives, not blacks/greys. Looks better on me. But I like a more neutral eye and a bold lip.
