The Beauty Meme-Please excuse my beauty [Jul. 21st, 2009|03:38 pm]

Makeup
*What foundation do you use?
This is a tricky question because I use Stila illuminating tinted moisturizer, with a mixture of concealers depending on my skin issue of the day.

Concealers are:
Philosophy The Supernatural brush palette
Bare Minerals foundation in Fair with the concealer brush

or

Lancome waterproof undereye cream concealer with the pinky finger blending method.


*What powder do you use?
A mixture of Bare Essentials Feather Light Mineral Veil and Mac Iridescent Silver Dusk loose powder (this stuff rules if you want to glow).

*What eyebrow pencil do you use?
Estee Lauder in soft Auburn.

*What eyeliner do you use?
Clinique gel black liner usually.

*What is your favorite eyeshadow?
I switch between Mac pigment powders and Urban Decay-Midnight Cowboy

*What mascara do you use?
Covergirl Lash Exact or Lancome Definicils are my favorites.

*What are your favourite lip balms/glosses/sticks?
I'm obsessed with this stuff and it changes, but here are my current favorites.
Lancome lipstick in Fashion Icon
with Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Julio or Doug over the top or Philosophy Smores for a more transparent look.

Hair

*Do you colour your hair?
I used to get it done every 6 weeks, but now I haven't done anything in 6+ months. Ugh. I put in a ColorSilk ($2.99) 1/2 container in the roots for the top layer every few months to give my natural red a pop, but generally it washes out in a few weeks.

*At home?
See above.

*At the salon?
I want to go get my highlights redone but I'm short on time. I want to get some bright red and bright blonde chunks again.

*What is your stylist's name?
Deeah Trinidad is the best!

*What salon do you go to?
Studio 343 in Sumner is worth the drive! I'm going to go see Dee when I can. Her number is (253) 862-2999 if you want a great deal on cut and color and the best looking hair of your entire life. I seriously drove from Shoreline to see her in traffic. The hair looks that much better.

*What is your natural hair color?
My natural hair is a medium red (not carrot top, not auburn, not firetruck), but one of the few natural real redhair people.

*What is your hair color now?
It's long and mostly natural with some color in the top layer to give depth.

*Do you have straight or curly hair?
Wavy.

*Do you use a curling iron?
Not very often, but for special occasions.

*A straightener?
About once or twice a month, usually if I'm going out.

*What kind?
Ceramic

*Do you use a blowdryer?
A few times per year I do when in a hurry, but it isn't good for long hair, so I air dry most of the time.

*Do you use gel/mousse/serum/hairspray and if so, what kinds?
I use only shine spray, lotion, leave in conditioner, or shine serum depending on how dry the air is that day. Right now I'm loving the Bedhead After Party.

*What shampoo do you use?
Aveda (the color safe one)

*What conditioner do you use?
Aveda (the color safe one)

*Do you use leave in conditioner?
See above

Scents

*What deodorant do you use?
Secret Platinum Protection

*What body wash/soap do you use?
I vary all the time, but right now Rockstar soap from lush or Warm Vanilla Sugar bodywash from Bath and Body Works.

*Do you use a loofah or washcloth to wash?
My hands or a bath sponge.

*What perfumes do you use or like?
Juicy Couture I use the most, but also Pink Sugar, Wish, Allure, Very Sexy Hot, and Angel are on rotation.

Jewelry

*Are diamonds really a girl's best friend?
I wouldn't know. I don't have any diamonds.

*What is your jewelry essential?
Sweet Romance necklaces.

*What jewelry do you wear most?
My White Sapphire ring from Bel and my Mystic Topaz matching ring and necklace.

*What jewelry do you crave most?
I love Aurora Borealis Crystals.

Purses and Shoes

*How many purses do you own?
Maybe 15?

*Which is your favourite?
I use my Lux De Ville "Sinner/Saint" purse every day. It's falling apart and I really need a new one.

*How many shoes do you own?
I have at least 50 pairs of shoes. It's crazy. I need to thin the herd.

*Which pair is your favourite?
The Meowy Owies for sure.

*Who is your favourite handbag designer?
Lux De Ville!

*Who is your favourite shoe designer?
Demonia, Anarchic, TUX, Fluevog, and Pleaser (I know, I'm cheap and slutty).

Shopping

*What are your favourite stores to clothes shop?
If I could afford it, it would be Macy's and Nordstrom, but it is Ross, Nordstrom Rack, Kohl's for work stuff, Deb and the outlets.

*What is your personal style mantra?
A little glitter never hurt anyone, and I've never regretted choosing to buy it in black.

*How would you describe your personal style?
Victorian casual lolita.

*What is your favourite shirt?
I love my shiny burgundy long sleeve satin blouse. It fits really well and looks classy at work.

*What is your favourite jeans?
I love Calvin Klein flare jeans, but wish I had a slightly darker wash.

I'll plan on it on Sunday and bring my train case and makeup stuff. That'll be so much fun. I'll charge up my camera. It's a date! :)

*giggles* I'd be entertained to see how you made them suffer. They deserve it.

I wish I had the patience to shop at Ross/TJ Maxx/Marshalls but ugh, I just don't. I end up browsing for about 5 minutes before I'm done. I just don't have any patience at all for sifting and sorting. So I end up driving down to San Marcos and hoping for great deals at the outlet malls. Did Bel mention that we have 2 huge outlet malls in San Marcos, one right across the street from the other? Oh yes. You'll want to add an extra day to your Austin trip for outlet shopping. I'll come with. :-)
