More Beauty Q & A's

June 21, 2021 in


Happy New Week, my loves!!  How was your weekend?  I got a hair makeover on Saturday. I'll share all of that with you guys later in the week.

For today, we are doing another beauty Q & A.  We did one of these back last winter and it was very popular. As I have stated before, I'm NOT a beauty professional or any sort. I'm simply sharing from my personal experience.  Okay, lets make a start!

What one beauty product has the most impact? 

This is entirely subjective. All in all, I'd say its your skin care. However, if we are talking cosmetics, I think the one thing that packs the most punch is to fill in your eye-brows. It frames your face and gives you a more youthful appearance.  This is my favorite brow pencil 

Do you remember what your 1st makeup product was?

Sure do! My brother Sean is 12 years older than me. When he was 15, he'd get his allowance, ride his bike to the drug store for a Coke and "Mad Magazine". He'd always get me something with what he had left.  He got me a single pan blue eyeshadow. I was SO excited.

What is your favorite drug store brand?

Without question, NYX.  Read This Next

What brand do you want to try, but haven't yet? 

Hmmm. I'm lucky enough to be in the position where I can go out and purchase whatever cosmetic I want when I want to. I'll tell you though, it seems like just yesterday when I was younger and living on a tight, single girl budget. I remember being at Nordstrom lusting over products I wanted so badly but couldn't afford.  

Do I really need an eyeshadow primer, or is that just a gimmick? 
Yes, you do need one. Even though my skin is dry like an alligator, I still have oily lids. I think that most of us do. Eyeshadow primer keeps your eye makeup on and it keeps it from running.

I'm just getting into makeup , which brands should I shop?

This is a hard one. There are countless AMAZING brands. If I had to pick one, I'd suggest MAC. Their sales people are very well informed and their line is vast.

How important do you really think sunscreen is?

Without exaggeration, sunscreen is EVERYTHING. Its literally everything. 
I'm not boasting here, I swear. At my last dermatologist appointment she told me that I had the skin of a 28 year old. I'll be 42 at the end of the summer. I wear sunscreen EVER DAY and have since I was 16.

No matter what, I cannot get my nails to grow. HELP!!

This is an easy one, start getting dipped manicures. Dipped manicures are NOT gel or shellac which is damaging. Dipped nails are not acrylics.  Read all about dipped mani's here

What is your favorite blush?
This one is easy peasy! "Amour" by Nars. Its the perfect matte rosy shade!

Okay, that's a wrap for today.  Have a fantast week!
