Thanks for Silvia for today's question!

What do you look for in a foundation?

I like medium, buildable coverage that has a natural finish–not totally matte but not dewy either. I want it to dry down and feel comfortable but not tacky. I want it to wear for a solid eight to nine hours with minimal change. It should respond well to powder on top, whether setting powder or powder blush/highlighter/bronzer. I prefer liquid over cream/powder but like creams/gels (just depends).

Added Fragrance

I’m not a fan, usually, as the scents are often floral-based and overwhelming. I’m using a face moisturizer right now that works well, but I loathe the scent of it.

Thanks for Karen for today's question!

How do you decide what eye makeup to wear?

It usually is based on what I need to test next! If I have a few palettes that I’m testing, then I might coordinate with whatever else I’m testing/wearing or try to make both eyes “match” in a general sense, like neutrals on both eyes rather than bold blues on one and golds on the other!
