What foundation do you use? 
I use a different just about every darn day. I just picked up the Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation and Concealer and Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth. I really enjoy Wet n Wild Photo Focus and Too Faced Born This Way. I have yet to find my holy grail, so my goal is to try them all until I do!
How about concealer?
I’ve been enjoying L.A. Girl HD Pro Concealer lately. I also like Kokie Cosmetics Be Bright Liquid Concealer.
Do you know your undertone color?
Yes! So important when picking products, especially foundation! I’m on the warm, but can pass with neutral products a lot of times.
What do you think of fake lashes?
Truth?!? I don’t know how to apply them. I wish I did, and want to learn! I think they are absolutely gorgeous, and love how amazing they look on!
Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Sure did, and I am really careful about this! I have tossed so many mascaras in my life, it’s not even funny! I also toss eyeliners when they get up there.
What brand of mascara do you use?
Maybelline has always been my go to brand. I also love NYX and Buxom.
Sephora or MAC?
Can I have both? I honestly haven’t walking into a MAC store in about a year, but frequent Sephora. I love both, so you can’t make me choose!
What make-up tools do you use in make up application?
I use brushes (obviously) and beauty sponges. I use to only use Beauty Blenders, but have been trying other brands recently.
Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
I have, but I don’t really reach for it because I hardly do my eyeshadow. I’ll normally use my foundation or concealer if I decide to paint my eyes.
For the face?
I think I always use primer now before my foundation. I’ve been loving the new Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen.
What is your favorite eyeshadow?
I love Makeup Geek and PUR shadows.
Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Both! I’m not much of a liner girl, but I will use either or depending on my mood.
How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Almost every time I break out an eyeliner pencil, which isn’t that frequent.
What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I think they are gorgeous! I love the products that are available!
Do you use mineral make-up?
I have in the past and still have my MAC mineral powder that I absolutely love!
What is your favorite lipstick?
Really?!? I have too many to list! I love Tarte Lip Paint, anything by Pixi, Buxom, Makeup Geek and MAC.
How about lip gloss?
Honestly, only Buxom glosses do anything for me. I’m not a huge gloss fan to begin with, but I reach for Buxom’s often.
What is your favorite blush to use?
Nars Orgasm or Deep Throat (cute huh?!?). Also, Pixi’s Rome Rose!
Do you buy your make-up online?if so where?
Sometimes! I shop Ulta and Sephora mainly, but love Beautylish, Nordstrom and Macy’s.
Do you like drugstore make-up?
Yes! I wasn’t a big fan a few years back, but am trying more and more. I’ve been really enjoying some of the drugstore products I own.
Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I’ve always wanted to go to cosmetology school, but know I wouldn’t be any good at it. I love makeup, but lack the serious skills required.
Are you clumsy in putting on make-up?
It depends on what I’m doing. Eyeliner, yes! Eyeshadow, yes! I’m pretty confident with my foundation skills though!
Name a make-up crime that you hate?
I hate obviously over-lined lips and dark blush! I also can’t stand super dark eyebrows.
Do you like colorful shades of make-up or neutral ones?
I’m more of a neutral girl myself but if you asked me 15 years ago, I’d say COLORFUL all the way! Think Mimi from the Drew Carry Show.
Which celebrity always has great make-up?
Kate Hudson and Jennifer Anniston. Love those two beauties.
If you had to leave the house and you only had time to put on one make-up item/product, what would you use?
Probably BB Cream. I love Purlise!
Could you ever leave the house without any make-up on?
Yes, and I do quite often.
Do you think you look good even without any make-up on?
I don’t think I look horrible, but makeup totally helps! I’m confident enough with myself that I can go either way.
In your opinion, what is the best make-up line?
Honestly, this is a hard question. I love Pixi and Nars. I don’t think those two have ever let me down.
What do you think of make-up?
I think makeup is wonderful. I love seeing the looks and talent out there. It gives women and men confidence they may not have without it. It can be art. I can’t imagine a world without it!

    Nice post girl. I also think NARS is one of the best beauty brands out there. They don’t come out with ground breaking earth shattering makeup products…to me, but the quality is fantastic.

      I completely agree! Other brands are always innovating and releasing amazing products but I find myself reaching for Nars time and time again 🙂

      I love Maybeline and honestly, ton’s of the drugstore brands are stepping it up! One of my favorite foundations is from Wet n Wild!
