Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 354

Published in: Just For Fun

You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?”

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

  1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?
    Nope, not this year because Baby Girl got most of the gifts, which is exactly what I wanted for Christmas.

    I did get a Nordstrom gift card from El Hub (YAY!), which isn’t technically beauty related, but I’m gonna use part of it at the Chanel counter because I just finished my stick of 88 Noir Intense Eyeliner, and I’m lost without it…

  2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?

    I am NOT a morning person, so everything I do is pretty much dedicated to the pursuit of waking my @ss up, LOL! After 1) splashing some water on my face and 2) cleansing it, I amble/zombie shuffle downstairs to the kitchen to make something 3) to eat and drink, which, these days, is usually a piece of multigrain toast with peanut butter and a cup of decaf green tea.

    I always wake up RAVENOUS… I’m basically an angry bear until I put something in my tum.

  3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    I like it, but I haven’t been doing it lately because I’m too lazy.

    But when I do bother to do it, I think it definitely makes my eyes look bigger, which is always a good thing IMO.

  4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?
    Well, coffee, for sure. A cup or two and I’m focused like a laser! Unfortunately, I haven’t had any real coffee since Baby Girl set up shop in my tum…

    Also, silence helps too. When I have to do any heavy mental lifting, I can’t have the radio playing or other people chatting around me in the room (unless that can’t be helped).

  5. Mascara or false lashes?
    Mascara, homie! Gimme a great mascara — one that lifts, curls and adds mega-volume — any day of the week.

    False lashes are fun and fab, especially for special occasions, and I think they look great in pics. I also think that I have the application mostly down to a science, but I prefer mascara for everyday makeup. They’re more natural looking, and I’m really into the natural look these days.

Wow, this is the last Monday of 2016… Can you believe it? Let’s make it a good one, OK?

Are you working this week? I’ll be around, purr usual, through Thursday or so, but then I’m taking one or two days off for the new year (if, of course, Tabs is OK with that).

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    So, I am at work right now for a few hours. Zack is off, so I am working half days. To answer some questions:

    1. While I didn’t get any beauty gifts for the holiday, I am getting my deluxe Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream for the anniversary on January 4th.
    2. I always have a cup of coffee in the morning before I eat breakfast, wake up the hubby and son (not this week) and eventually eat breakfast.
    3. I don’t wear anything on my waterline, my eyes are just too sensitive.
    4. I try to do some Yoga breathing to concentrate.
    5. Mascara.

    Hope you had a good Christmas. Enjoy the New Year!

  2. Angie says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year? No, not one thing from anyone! I did gift myself throughout the season though!
    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail? Brush my teeth. Do hair/makeup and drink water.
    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line? I do it on occasion, makes my eyes pop!
    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate? Alone time.
    5. Mascara or false lashes? Mascara, I love it. Brings out your natural beauty. I do wear false lashes for a special occasion.

  3. Chelsea says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?
    Hmmm… yes! I got an eyelash serum that I usually buy for myself, it was on my Amazon wishlist.

    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?
    Eat, skincare, feed the bunny

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    I don’t have strong feelings. It can look good, but I don’t tend to do liner on my waterline.

    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?
    Music!

    5. Mascara or false lashes?
    Totally mascara. Falsies are great for special occasions or performances, but mascara is my everyday go-to.

  4. Michelle ComesLast says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year? No, but I purchased some for myself. I finally bought the Lorac contour palette, and a sample set of Becca opal.
    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail? Morning prayers, wash with my olay scrubber (like a clarisonic), and put on my Beauty Everlasting retinol (better than the Peter Thomas Roth, IMO)

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line? I love it on others, but hate it on me.
    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate? definitely quiet.
    5. Mascara or false lashes? Mascara. I use Revitalash (upper and lower) and prefer a light coat of mascara.

  5. kellly says:

    Not much in the way of gifts this year, but I did buy stuff for myself – a major MAC Faerie eyeshadow haul.
    I always have a cup of tea in the morning, so 1) make the tea, 2) shower and do my makeup, and 3) feed the dogs. Then I go to work.
    I don’t use any eye liner these days at all so no, no white or any other color.
    Concentrate? huh? what’s that?
    MAS.CAR.A. I haven’t used false lashes in years and don’t think I’m practiced enough any more to deal with them at all, but mascara is my desert island (i almost wrote “eyeland” HA HA) staple, along with concealer.

  6. 1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?
    Yes. I got the Clinique Stick set, the one with the stick for the cheeks, the two for the eyes and the two lipsticks. My mother got it from me in duty-free, I had asked for it and she said it had been sold out. A very nice surprise.

    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?
    Snuggles with my daughter, morning skincare routine, a big glass of water.

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    White never, nude sometimes. But only special ones, I hate the film some leave on my contacts.

    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?
    Silence.

    5. Mascara or false lashes?
    Mascara. I love false lashes, but they are such a hassle to put on.

    I will do some work, but I am staying at my parents, so in a very relaxed way.

  7. Fran says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year? No — well, only what I gave myself 🙂
    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail? Drink coffee (I almost always eat something, too), brush teeth and wash face, feed my tiny hamsters a treat.
    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line? I prefer a beige color close to my own skin tone — white looks a bit harsh on me…
    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate? Quietness, or peaceful instrumental music, or quiet music sung in a language I don’t understand (if I can understand the words, they distract me).
    5. Mascara or false lashes? Mascara. It’s easier.

  8. Mitzi says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?
    Yes, I did – waaay too much loot lol. It started off with some Zoya nail polish I’d been eyeing, and snowballed from there….all in all, Santa was very good to me lol.

    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?
    I’m also not a morning person, although my 2 cats make sure I get up at a decent hour (if 6:30 is decent – more like INdecent, imho).
    After finally getting up, I shower, feed the little varmints, then sit down and read email with a mug of something hot (this time of year, it’s hot cocoa or mocha).

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    I think it looks nice, especially when going for that ‘wow’ impact.

    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?
    Closing my eyes and focusing on the moment at hand. If that doesn’t work, then I review a list of stuff I need to get done for the day, then put on some music. The type of music depends on what I need to get done (fast beat for stuff requiring physical movement, slow beat for more mental tasks).

    5. Mascara or false lashes?
    Mascara – I never quite got the false lashes routine down, and now whenever I apply them, one of them usually ends up looking like a rogue caterpillar on my eyelid!

    1. Went ham at Sephora bec of the VIB Sale & $20 for $50 coupon. Got everything in 4 separate purchases bec the stuff I wanted wasn’t available + I was indecisive. I’m living for the Skin Wonderland bundle!

    2.a)check Twitter like the morning paper
    b)check my skin for problems and respond with a corresponding cleanser/moisturizer combo
    c)get bombarded with hugs and kisses from my niece

    3. Never done it. Not really planning on ever trying it because my eyes are already so round, I don’t want to emphasize them even more.

    4. Silence makes me fidgety so what I do is I’ll put on a podcast (ex. Ask Liebs) or a radio comedy (ex. Cabin Pressure)

    5. Both! Falsies are for super special occasions because they give me the lashes my Alter Ego should have. However, mascara’s so dependable. Even when I muck up the blending of a smoky eye, it all looks better after a couple coats of Maybelline Full n’ Soft.

    Hope you’re enjoying your holidays, lovely! With so much to look forward to next year, I’m sure you’re winding down your 2015 in high spirits. Can’t wait for another year of beauty & happiness!

    Hi Karen…loved YOUR answers to this poll!
    1. Just got back from Ulta and Sephora to spend Christmas money. Got Juice Beauty age defy serum for my dark spots. Also a 2 weeks supply of their Green Apple Peel nightly brightening pads….just to see I I liked them. Also Sebastian shaper plus hair spray. Then since my lips are so bad the sales gal at Sephora suggested Bite fruit scrub which is an exfoliant. Was looking at Zoya nail polish but couldn’t find the naked kit with the perfector of lavender so will order on line. Got a sample of Marc Jacobs lipstick in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang which I love. I see a full size in my future. Still haven’t tried any MAC products. Since I don’t live in a big city will have to head to Macy’s to check those products out.
    2. First thing in the morning consists of coffee, watching a morning news channel and checking my emails and other social media.
    3. I have trouble wearing eyeliners so no white or anything else on the water lines.
    4. Gotta have silence to concentrate.
    5. Always mascara just too old to master falsies ❣❣

  11. Lauren says:

    Enjoy your time off!! Did you go through caffeine withdrawals when BG came along?? Annnnd, morning person…umm, I’m a BEAST until I’ve “woken up!”

    1) no beauty gifts, but I did buy some for myself! A Chanel lipstick/gloss/balm called “boy” at the airport duty free, and a new MAC lip liner (can’t remember the name!!), because I needed 55 lip liners instead of my 54! 😉 it’s a pro longwear in a light pink color.

    2) stumble to the kitchen for caffeine and a small protein bar; get back in bed and eat/drink while I check this site, FB, and any emails; walk the oversized lap dog for an hour an a half.

    3) I love the look on others, but only tried it once, poked my eye and ruined a contact!

    4) fresh air, nature, and I agree…silence. too much noise makes me irritable lately. Hubby has the TV way too loud!

    5) MASCARA!! I do have long lashes, and just can not get false ones on perfectly. Howevrr, mascara is my least fave part of mskeup, but the one thing I’ll never skip!

    Happy last Monday of 2015!! 2016 is going to be such a beautiful and amazing year for tou, and I can not wait to hear everything about your Mini Me!!! <3

  12. Erin says:

    I’m kind of working but in holiday/grief mode. One of good friends I’ve had since ’99 passed on the yesterday suddenly. I’ll be taking tomorrow and the rest of the week pretty much off. I’ll be glad to move on to 2016 as 2015 has been one of the worst years ever!

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?

    No but I’ll buy myself some here in a few days or less.

    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?

    1. Potty me
    2. Petcare: Potty, feed, water, love on
    3. Take my medications!

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?

    I love it!

    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?

    A healthy diet, sleep, and occasional caffeine!

    5. Mascara or false lashes?

    Mascara!

  13. Mel says:

    I got a LOT of nail polish for Christmas, including a YSL (Bleu Cobalt) and a bunch of indie polishes. And my sister – who works for a high-end retailer – sent me a gigantic bottle of Givenchy perfume. So I made out like a bandit, really.

    (I need to leave so I’m not answering the rest of the questions right now. But I thought I’d share my joy!) – Mel

  14. Tatiana says:

    Sitting on the sofa with my grown up baby girl. She has the week off from work, so we’re hanging out. Going to see The Danish Girl this afternoon and take in the Asian Art Museum tomorrow afternoon. Dinners out, afterward. Although I’m gaining holiday weight, so I think I will cut out the pre-dinner cocktails. Workout with the new trainer Wednesday morning.
    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year? Not as gifts, but when I went to the Half Yearly sale at Nordies to get some dress shirts for Dear Husband I stopped at the Chanel counter and picked up a Rouge Coco Shine in Energy and a Stylo Yeux in Purple Choc.
    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail? Make a cup of Japanese green or masala chai tea, eat food (starving when I wake up) wash my face and moisturize.
    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    Nope. Not going to happen. White, black, blue whatever color, my waterlines do not play nice with liners. Sigh.
    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?
    Silence. I swear I want to get a pair of the new Bose in ear noise cancelling headphones, just for around the home studio.
    5. Mascara or false lashes?
    Mascara, because I have yet to master falsies. So many questions. Mascara with falsies or not? Before or after application. I’ve read somewhere that you can wear them for several days in a row! Yikes, is that true? How do you apply them so the ends don’t get stuck on the middle of your lashes instead of at the base. Clearly, I’m a klutz, so I still need to practice more. Or maybe I just need more patience. I want to take one of the false lash classes at Sephora, but there’s never any space available at the stores near me.

  15. Rachel R. says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?

    I got some awesome holiday beauty gifts. Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lipstick Set from my younger son. My older son gave me a bunch of Morphe palettes: 35W, 35P, 35E, 9B (The Blushed Blush Palette). “Face Paint: The Story of Makeup” by Lisa Eldridge. Tom Ford Lips & Boys mini in Stavros (best stocking stuffer ever!). Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette, Love Flush Blush Palette, and Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks. Japonesque Pixelated Color Eye Shadow Palette. LORAC Unzipped Palette. The Balm theManizer Sister Luminizer Palette. YSL Black Opium. Katy Perry Killer Queen gift set.

    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?
    1) Go pee. That must always happen first.
    2) Clean my face.
    3) Take my allergy medications and put allergy drops in my eyes.

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line? I like it with some looks.

    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate? Music. And having my kids out of the house or asleep.

    5. Mascara or false lashes? Mascara.

  16. Holly says:

    Good afternoon! I’m doing laundry right now, waiting to transfer a load to the dryer & thinking about lunch. My brother sent me home with some leftover ham & I have a bunch of tangerines. No dessert, though, which is not a bad thing!

    Here’s my answers:

    1. I won a trio of lipsticks from Stowaway Cosmetics during their “giftaway”, which was awesome! I also treated myself to a new powder brush from Real Techniques.
    2. I say I’m not a morning person but it’s not the morning that’s the problem; it’s that I’m a slow waker-upper. My three things are turning on my salt lamp, making coffee & drinking coffee, & then showering.
    3. I like the idea of white liner on the water line but it’s too much work!
    4. Ambient background noise such as rain or birdsong allows me to concentrate without getting distracted by the lack of noise. If I really need to work on a problem, I listen to the NPR jazz station while I go on a scenic drive.
    5. Mascara all the way!

    Off to finish my chores. I hope you’re having a lovely day & not overdoing anything!

  17. Christine says:

    I’m actually off of work for a few weeks – my Christmas gift to myself (ha) was back surgery last week. I haven’t had any major time off since college, so I have NO idea what to do with myself (I mean, rest, of course).

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year? Yes! I got the Bareskin Mineral Perfecting Veil and an Essie base coat.

    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail? Push at least one cat off of me, grab coffee, and check my emails.

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line? It’s not something I do. My eyes are already big – I like using my Stila smudge stick on my water line.

    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate? Music with no lyrics, coffee!

    5. Mascara or false lashes? Mascara! Along with big eyes, I have a ton of long lashes (think Liz Taylor double lashes). I love a good lenthening/curling mascara… It Cosmetics Hello Lashes and Smashbox Full Exposure are my current rotations.

    Hope your upcoming time off is restful!

  18. Efrain says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?
    Nothing of beauty but money and as I’ve told you I want to buy skincare.

    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?
    Even though there are some differences between being woke up by an alarm and to wake up naturally I think I always stretch myself in the bed, watch the clock and brush my teeth, even if I don’t wash my face immediately I brush them I hate the taste.

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    I like it but I hate reapplying.

    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?
    Music and to establish times because I get distracted easily so knowing I have to be focus for 30 minutes helps me.

    5. Mascara or false lashes?
    I don’t use neither of them but I think that I get very dramatic lashes without falsies.

    I hope you aren’t missing a lot of carbs, moi instead ate cheese and sugar in quantities I haven’t in times and now I haves more pimples than normally at least the chocoflan and the buñuelos worth it.

  19. Sara says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?
    I did get a sephora gift card! But I’m in the same boat, baby girl got most of the gifts! There’s a lot of cute dresses under my tree right now!

    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?
    Make a cup of tea, watch the news and relax on the couch before starting the day.

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    I’ve never tried it.

    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?
    Silence!

    5. Mascara or false lashes?
    Mascara. I have tried false lashes, I just can’t do them myself I always feel like I look weird.

    Hope you had a great Christmas Karen! I’m looking forward to lots of relaxing after all the cooking and baking and running around last week. This is my week to snuggle on the couch with movies and I couldn’t be happier. Tomorrow we are supposed to get bad weather so I’ll be staying in and baking a cinnamon coffee cake as my treat for the week. I always make it during the Christmas break , it’s my favorite. Wish I could send you some!

  20. Kate & Zena says:

    It’s a gloomy, despicable, stay-at-home-under-the-sheets Monday here in Illinois. It is raining, snowing and hailing ALL AT ONCE with 50 mph winds. In better news, I saw Star Wars yesterday so I can finally not walk on eggshells around the Internet.

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?
    Nope. I was spoiled with loot for horseback riding, minions (I LOVE the minions) and some stuff to help relax my muscles after my horseback riding!

    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?
    Whine/groan/make some sort of noise while checking the time on my phone, crack my back/toes/neck/fingers (in that order) and make my bed…in that order.

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    I wear Benefit’s white liner on my lower water line when I’m actually spirited enough.

    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?
    I’m never awake until I have a can of Dr. Pepper. The caffeine is needed. If I need to concentrate more, I have to evacuate to my bedroom because there’s too much noise in my living room where my desktop is or wait until my mom goes to bed. Prime concentrating time is when everyone is asleep. LOL.

    5. Mascara or false lashes?
    MASCARA. I LOATHE false lashes. I get the idea of them, I truly do, but you cannot wear falsies and ride a horse. The lightest pair weighs your eyelids down and you can’t see one thing without looking down and looking down is BAD in the horsey world.

  21. Amy says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?
    I bought myself a Dior quint. Gold and a little silver, perfect for winter!

    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?
    Pray in a nontraditional way, snuggle my son and hound dog, fix breakfast.

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    Love the idea!

    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?
    Getting out of the house! Having no laundry or home improvement projects to do, no dishes, no distractions.

    5. Mascara or false lashes?
    Mascara! Theyy’re Real has been my go-to, but I’m looking for a good drugstore backup.

    Great baby haul, Karen – you’re all set!! Adorable bedspread, too 🙂

  22. Bree says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?
    Only things I bought for myself and boy did I buy a lot! I just threw away all the boxes I’ve been hoarding for some unknown reason, and I had a small heart attack! It’s sephoras fault gets me every holiday season with the sale.

    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?
    Brush my teeth, put on deodorant, and moisturizer. Eat, check e-mail/Facebook

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    I don’t really like to wear any liner on my water line. It weirds me out.

    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?
    Peace and quiet

    5. Mascara or false lashes?
    Mascara, I’ve never worn falsies.

  23. Kalli says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?
    No loot, but lots of cash and a couple gift cards! I used most of the cash today to get my hair colored and cut, which I’ve been putting off for months.
    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?
    Check my phone and all social media, if it’s a work morning, I wake up to NPR and I drink a cup of coffee or hot tea.
    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    Not for me, mostly because nothing stays on my water lines. I do like it on other people though.
    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?
    Music and some caffeine. For an extra boost, I’ll drink a regular Coke!
    5. Mascara or false lashes?
    Mascara usually, but I want to do false lashes! I just need to practice more and I think I need to find the right lashes for my eye shape.

  24. NFJ says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?

    YEAH! lots and lots of palettes. The Ultra Creme Blush Palette, The Flawless Ultra Professional Eyeshadow Palette, a powder blush palette and a contour creme palette in addition to seven ELF Disney beauty books & the C. Bybel eyeshadow and highlighter palette which makes me ask, “When will we be seeing the Karen & Tabs Beauty Palette or line of lips colours?” With shade names like, “Baby Girl Bright Pink and Tabs Takes on the Town Eyeliner?” Would love that!

    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?
    Teeth, Face, Pray

    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    Have read too much about infections in the water line, for me it’s a major no-no! I’ve got hooded eyes, nothing is going to make them look bigger, just have to love the ones I’ve got and have learned to do eye makeup for hooded eyes thanks to YouTube.

    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate?
    Silence sometimes and other times classical music. Depends on the work/project I’m doing.

    5. Mascara or false lashes? WHAT ABOUT EXTENSIONS!
    Can’t live without mascara. But lash extensions are the thing right now. Extensions usually mean no mascara but I’m going to try one of those magical growth serums soon! Then plan to ditch the extensions and go back to loads of yummy mascara. It’s the one thing I feel naked without, that and clothes 😉

  25. Gloria says:

    1. Did you get any beauty loot for the holidays this year?
    Nope! Folks stopped getting me beauty loot since I’m so picky. I did get a Sephora gift card for the bossbabe… does that count?
    2. What are three things you do every morning without fail?
    Like you, I hate waking up. Without fail I drink coffee, give Sniffles a treat and go #1 in the loo.
    3. How do you feel about wearing white liner on the water line?
    Looks great for 5 seconds before tears wash any trace of liner on the water line away.
    4. What’s something that helps you concentrate
    I was diagnosed with ADHD in college and prescribed Adderall. That REALLY helps me concentrate. But it is addictive and I miss my brain jumping from one thought to the next. I’m sure on a daily basis it could help me be 100% more productive, yet I’m sure it’ll eat away at my creativity by 75%. Even though both productivity and creativity are important, it’s easier to get myself back on track via to-do lists, post-its, etc., but not so easy to jump through creative blocks.
    5. Mascara or false lashes?
    Team Mascara! I like the process of applying mascara and seeing those lashes get thicker and more luscious. Even though falsies look more dramatic in pictures, I’m OK not wearing any.

    I’m OFF til next Monday but still checking emails. 🙂

    1. Beauty gift: I received a Sephora gift card.
    2. Three things I do every morning: I feed the bird and the pooches, have breakfast while I read the news, then take a short walk before getting ready for the day. I’m retired so my mornings are unhurried.
    3. White liner: I really dislike white liner which looks so unnatural, but I love a light beige one like Chanel’s pencil in Clair. It has the same brightening and eye-opening effect without looking contrived.
    4. Aide to concentration: Bach’s keyboard concertos played by Murray Perahia. Yes, it’s that specific 🙂
    5. Mascara or false eyelashes: When I was a young woman in the 60’s, I always wore false eyelashes for evening because mascara was pretty basic back then and we didn’t have all the lengthening/thickening options that exist today. Nowadays, though, I never bother with false lashes. A good black mascara gives me the look I want.

    I’ll wake up, get on my laptop and spend my time on beautyblogs and on youtube. Get downstairs and eat some oatmeal. I’ll get ready to go to work.

    When i used to study for exams or something, i used to clear out my desk completely. I also try not to go on the internet, otherwise, i’ll be lost.
