Are there certain colors/products you won’t use during certain seasons? For example, since it’s spring, do you skip summery colors on the eyes or really bronzed cheeks?

I wouldn’t say I avoid anything, but sometimes I’ll notice something I do is kind of “summery” during a non-summer season or the look is really “fall” like, despite it being summer.

If you were using MAC’s 3N lipstick, what look would you create with it? What shadows would you use? What would you use on cheeks? Anything added to the lips?

Create a look using whatever you want, as long as you include 3N! Feel free to share links to photos of your look(s) using it in the comments.

Do you prefer using a separate sunscreen product or want it included in your moisturizer/foundation? Why do you go one way or the other?

I prefer it in my moisturizer over anything else, just because I feel like I get great coverage with a moisturizer vs. a foundation. I do also have separate sunscreen-only products, because when I know I’ll be out in strong sun all day (e.g. playing tennis), I’ll opt for stronger SPF.

P.S. – How is everyone’s weekend going? What did/will you do?

What do you look for in a perfect foundation? Have you found the perfect one? Come close? Share your recommendations and how they measure up against your requirements!

Studio Fix Fluid is the closest I’ve come. For me, I need a light-to-medium foundation that has a matte finish that doesn’t look powdery/cakey. It should be relatively sweat proof and have SPF 15 in it.

Are you a fan of mineral makeup? If so, what are your favorite brands? If not, why not?

I’ve tried it with minimal success thus far, so I’m hoping you will all share with me some great ideas!
