This is a girly one too!! It’s time for The Sunday Social, and in particular I am loving this week’s questions. It’s always a fun link-up for sure, but some weeks just have a special oomph to them if you know what I mean. This just happens to be one of those weeks.
1. How old were you when you started wearing make-up.
I don’t actually remember. I wanna say I started wearing just a little bit in Junior High. By the time I hit high school I was buying my own and pretty much taking it from there. My mom sold Mary Kay for years, so I was in the home of a make-up expert. My sister and I have gone on and lived up to that legacy…frequently being asked to do friends make-up for weddings and I did several proms. We love make-up that’s for sure.
2. What are your top 3 beauty products?
Funny you should ask that. I’m part of a Blogging Challenge with a ton of bloggers this year, and last week’s topic was in fact skin care. So why re-invent the wheel. If you click over to it you will actually find five of my favorite beauty products listed.
3. What is one make-up product you don’t leave home without?
I love this stuff! I actually have several shades and they are always in my purse.
You can purchase them here if you don’t have a consultant (from my awesome sister who is a rock star consultant)
4. What is your daily beauty routine?
I very rarely leave the house without make-up on, or having done my routine and a minimal amount of make-up. You think I’m kidding, but you should see my right after I delivered my baby pictures, LOL. It’s kind of ridiculous…but once I get that epidural baby I am putting that make-up on. It just makes me feel good.
eye make-up, blush and all! LOL
Its the same for morning and evening – cleanse with either a face wash (Mary Kay Botanicals) or a cleansing pad (Simple or Ponds). Then I put on my day or night anti-aging moisturizer serum (almost Mary Kay – TimeWise Collection). Depending on what is going on sometimes I will use a cover-up, primer, and BB Cream. Then whatever make-up I am going to use. At night, its the same, except I also use a separate cleansing pad for eye make-up and mascara (tough little devils aren’t they).
5. What is your favorite hair/make-up product you’ve discovered in the last year?
It was by total accident and not because I actually bought it, that I discovered my new favorite product. Sometimes as a blogger you get to try cool things, and Influenster sent me my very first BB Cream. I had heard all about it and just assumed it was another crazy thing. Some fad that would come and go. Well, I’m a convert. I love the stuff. It goes on great, smells good, feels good and has all but eliminated my need for primer and traditional foundations on most days. seriously the stuff is amazing. I’m kind of excited to see what it will do for my skin in the long term, but it’s always hard to tell that stuff in the beginning anyway.
