10 Questions from StyledWithJoy
1. Quick! You have 5 minutes to get ready. Describe the makeup look you’d do.
Foundation/concealer/powder, curl lashes, taupe eyeshadow, lipstick. If I have an extra minute, mascara.
2. Would you rather wear skinny jeans or short shorts for the rest of your life?
Skinny jeans. I’d rather not freeze to death and be somewhat unfashionable in the near future. 🙂
3. All time favorite mascara?
Maybelline Full & Soft Waterproof, in black. Discontinued where I live. Of course!
4. What do you think of the new trend, strobing?
I never got into contouring, and I doubt I’ll have much interest in strobing, though I do use a little highlighter sometimes. I’m not really sure how strobing is different from regular highlighting, though, which has been a thing for a very long time…right? It seems to me that a strobing (if it’s done to the extent that contouring was) has the propensity to look really, really shiny/greasy, though.
5. Eye Primer or MAC Paint Pot?
I have not yet tried a Paint Pot (though it’s on my wishlist) and I don’t generally use eye primer. I just have dry skin and haven’t really found a need to use it. I will sometimes use a MAC Cream Colour Base, or eyeliner, as a base for my eyeshadow, though, just to make the color more intense. I just got a Maybelline Color Tattoo to try out, as well!
6. Fringe or kimonos?
Egad. I kind of hate fringe, and kimonos are just too costume-y. Fringy bags, in particular, look like lhasa apsos on a strap. (Love dogs, wouldn’t want to wear one!) If I have to pick, though, fringe.
7. Floppy hat or beanie?
Beanie. Mostly because I haven’t found a floppy hat that doesn’t look ridiculous on me. I love the look on others.
8. Holy grail perfume?
I really, really want Grossmith’s Shem-El-Nessim, but I can’t justify the price tag. Plus, it’s similar enough to Guerlain L’Heure Bleue, which I have and adore. I will go with Lancôme 2000 et Une Rose, which DH got for me as a gift back in 2000 (or was it 1999?). Rose is my favorite perfume note.
9. Must have Orange lipstick?
Clarins Joli Rouge in Papaya.
10. Holy grail lip balm?
