I saw this meme over at In(side) the Loop and thought it looked fun and kind of out of the ordinary. Feel free to play along!
I actually don’t wear foundation. I find it heavy and annoying. I do think I may need to start looking for a tinted moisturizer, though, because I need to even out a little splotchiness.
My Mascara: Maybelline Great Lash.
I’ve worn expensive mascaras and cheap and this one is the best. I use the “Blackest Black” because my lashes have blonde tips. I wear contacts and have pretty sensitive eyes so I always thought I needed to wear expensive mascaras. Every article with a make-up artist I’ve read has raved about Great Lash so I tried it and I love it.
Night Cream: Estee Lauder Idealist
I’m not sure if this is even specifically designed to be used at night but that’s typically when I use it so it is for me. I tend to have flakiness in my t-zone and this gently refinishes those spots.
My Beauty Product Brand: ???
I don’t really have a specific brand that I stick with. When I was younger it was Estee’ Lauder and lately I’m really loving Chanel’s beauty products but I just use what I like, regardless of brand.
My Essential Beauty Product: Lipstick/Liner/Gloss
I do not feel dressed until I am wearing something on my mouth so these are a must. I would love to be one of those women who can just throw a gloss in a bag and go but I have to do the full thing or nothing at all.
My Favorite Makeup Product: Refillable self-sharpening pencils (lip and eye liners)
Whoever invented these was a genius. Estee’ Lauder started producing these back in the 90s and I’m so glad that drugstore brands are doing these now. I CANNOT stand actual wood pencils. They’re bulky, it’s impossible to sharpen them well and they’re crumbly.
My Perfume: Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker and Romance by Ralph Lauren
I’ve been through a number of perfumes and I don’t really remain loyal to any specific one any longer than a bottle lasts. These two just happen to be the ones I like right now.
Three Products (besides solar) to bring on a Deserted Island:
Moisturizer, Contact Solution, toothbrush
Woman with the Best Sense of Style:
I have a few, I love Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly (Princess Grace of Monaco), and Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis. No one else can compare to the enduring style and grace of these three icons.
My Ultimate Dream:
Effortlessness. I long to be one of those women who doesn’t even have to try and can look amazing. That’s what I want to be when I grow up.
How Do I Define Womanhood:
Consciousness, selflessness, graciousness.
My Favorite Fashion Publication:
Probably In Style. I really haven’t read a fashion publication in a while. I think In Style is the most realistic and lends the most useful information.
