Giveaway Winner & 40 Beauty Questions

I wanted to announce the summer giveaway winner......

Congratulations to kelliegonzo! I hope you enjoy your goodies! I probably won't be having any major giveaways until fall. However, I may throw one or two really small (2-3) polish giveaways throughout the summer! We shall see.

I found this 40 Beauty questionanaire on a few blogs and figured I'd do it too. If you'd like to put this on your blog feel free. If you don't have a blog or just don't want to make post on it, but feel like answering go ahead and fill it out with your answers in the comment section. I'd love to read about what products everyone else is into!


-How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice, but I do more extensive cleansing at night

-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)

Oily in summer, combo in winter

-What is your current facial wash?

St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Cleanser

-Do you exfoliate?

Yes usually a few times a week.

-What brand do you use?
St. Ives Naturally Clear Blemish & Blackhead Control Apricot Scrub

-What moisturizer do you use?
Clean & Clear Morning Glow

-Do you have freckles?

-Do you use eye cream?

No, should I? I really don't know this stuff?

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Not usually. In summer I do sometimes get breakouts on my chin.

-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?



-What foundation do you use?

Either Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals or Clinique Superfit

-How about concealer?

Revlon Colorstay

-Do you know your undertone color?
Oh geez. I'm not 100% sure anymore. I'd say I'm neutral learning towards warm.

-What do you think of fake eyelashes?

I have never worn them. I like them on others as long as they aren't costumey unless you're a Drag Queen. In that case costumey fake lashes are awesome!

-Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?


-What brand of mascara do you use?
I have lots of mascaras. I like Maybelline & Cover Girl ones best.

-Sephora or MAC?
Personally, I'd say Sephora. I think they have better variety and you can buy palettes there with multiple options as opposed to MAC. -hides- Don't hate me, but I think MAC is a bit overrated at least for the casual makeup wearer like me. If you're into dramatic looks and doing a lot with your makeup I think MAC is great, but for me it's not practical. I rarely shop high-end anymore though. That's just my opinion so don't hate!

-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?


-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?

Yes, ELF primer

-For the face?
Not currently

-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?

Last Call-Urban Decay & Bronze Glitz palette Maybelline

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?

-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
Meh, too messy.

-Do you use mineral makeup?

-What is your favorite lipstick?
NYX Ceto & Rimmel Coral Shimmer

-How about lipgloss?
Maybelline Shiny-licious anything I have about every color

-What is your favorite blush to use?
Milani-Mai Tai, Laura Geller- Sunswept, or Benefit Coralista

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?

-Do you like drugstore makeup?

LOVE IT! Believe it or not, I used to be a high end makeup snob. I think my makeup is now 80% drugstore 20% high end. Drugstore brands have really stepped up their game, and many of them are comparable or better than high end. The only thing I repurchase now that is high end is my foundation.

-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
I had no idea these existed

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?

I've considered taking a class for myself, but not seriously.

-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?

-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
I guess the whole Snooki type look. Too much bronzer..too much everything

-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
For eyes I tend to keep things more neutral. I'm a little more adventurous with lips on occasion.

-Which celebrity always has great make up?
Haha, honestly I don't really follow pop culture and celebrities, so I don't know. I'm a nerd. :P

-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yeah, I do it 1-2 times a week.

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Meh, I don't seem to scare people.

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I can't choose. I am not brand specific when it comes to makeup. I have so many different brands

-What do you think of Makeup?

I like makeup. I like putting it on. I think it accentuates my features and boosts my confidence, plus it's a fun thing to do. It's not a hobby of mine and I'm not one to follow trends with it, but I enjoy it.

Stay tuned...I'll have a polish post up later today!
