Liebster questions from Abby

  1. What is your favorite foundation?

For several months now, it’s been the Hourglass Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint (in shell)

  1. What do you apply your foundation with?

My dampened Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

  1. What is your skin care regimen?

Well, regimen would be a strong word.  But I just bought the Paula’s Choice Resist+ kit and I’m looking forward to trying it out.

  1. What makeup brands do you love?

Hourglass, ELF, Milani, Too Faced, Makeup Geek, It Cosmetics, Wet n’ Wild, to name a few…. 😉

  1. What makeup products do you splurge on?

I tend to splurge more on base products than on color cosmetics… so, foundations and concealers.

  1. What do you love so much about makeup?

I have less-than-zero in the way of visual-arts talent, so makeup is my way to play with color and have some fun changing up my look.

  1. What are your favorite eye shadow colors?

Brand notwithstanding, I’d say I gravitate the most toward taupes, burgundies, and smoky purples.  For example (I had to throw you at least a little eye candy)….

Assorted Makeup Geek Eye shadows

  1. What is your favorite mascara?

My 2 all time faves are Too Faced Lashgasm and Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing.  I’m really loving the Lily Lolo mascara lately as well.

  1. Pressed or loose powder?

I don’t tend to use finishing powders, but those powders I do have are pressed.

  1. What brand brushes do you like?

Definitely a Real Techniques devotee.  I also have some Sigma faves.

  1. What concealer can you not live without?

Without a doubt, Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Disappearing Act Concealer (in light)

Now, please know that I am not proud of what I am about to write.  However, the truth of the matter is I haven’t the vaguest idea which of all the fabulous blogs I follow has fewer than 200 subscribers.  So, for this round, I am going to bow out of nominating anyone.

But, don’t fret!  Stay tuned for next Friday’s post, to see my nomination and my nominees for… The Infinity Dreams Award!
