Tag: Beauty Questions

Love this tag, it's perfect for a lazy Sunday! What's your favorite makeup look? Colors that enhance a "faux" tan. I always use bronzer and highlighter with slightly smokey eyes and natural lips. I've just recently started experimenting with nude lips.

What part of your body do you love? I get complimented a lot on my eyes. Without makeup I have Bette Davis'esque eyes that are blue/green. My lashes are naturally long which makes them look even bigger. I line my water line every day to try and make them look more almond shaped.

Who is your beauty icon? Audrey Hepburn and Jennifer Aniston. What beauty products make you feel instantly sexy? Scented body lotion, perfume, smokey eyeliner, and occasionally fake lashes that I use to help thicken my own. How do you look after your skin? Skin care is the most important thing to me. I wash and moisturize my face twice a day with products that are pH balanced. I use day and night eye cream and facial serum during the day. Once a week I exfoliate my face and body. I spray my brushes daily with cleaner and wash them thoroughly twice a month. I try to drink lots of water, get my daily dose of antioxidants (via fruits and vegetables), use sunscreen, get 8 hours of sleep, take a fish oil supplement, and sleep on a satin pillowcase. What is your signature scent? I've been wearing Givenchy Irresistible for 3 years. I'm hoping to get a new fragrance around Christmas this year. What are your hair care secrets? I wash my hair every three days and use a hair masque once a week. I always use protectant before I heat style my hair. Again I sleep on a satin pillowcase which is suppose to prevent breakages (and facial wrinkles). I take a multivitamin everyday, folic acid and B12 is suppose to be very good at helping to grow healthy strong hair. How do your pamper yourself? Usually I treat myself at home; I like to do a hair conditioning treatment and a manicure and pedicure once a week. Since I do it myself most of the time I like to buy nice scrubs, lotions, and potions to use. Occasionally I'll pay to get my nails or brows done and I visit my stylist every 2-3 months for a cut and color. What is your beauty pet peeve? Lipstick on the teeth, uneven eye liner, and foundation that isn't blended into the neck. What would be your desert island must haves? Sunscreen, clean water, lotion, hair conditioner, and lip balm. I can get away without makeup as long as I didn't have a mirror. Finally, do you have a beauty philosophy? "There's no such thing as natural beauty" - Dolly Parton, Steel Magnolias I'm not sure if I necessarily believe it but this is one of my favorite movie lines.
