Do you enjoy applying makeup to others? Share!
It can be fun, but it has to be the right setting/tone – playing around is fun, but doing someone’s makeup for a special event or occasion can be stressful!

If you missed out on the recently limited edition, quick-to-sell-out (but of course!) MAC Cheeky Bugger Blush, which is a light-medium pink, hopefully one of these permanent options will ease the pain. You can see even more dupes over at The Dupe List.

What beauty product would you invent if you could? No matter how far-fetched!
A cheap, effective skincare solution that worked for everyone! Trying to find the right products can be so difficult, and what works for your best friend may not work for you and vice versa, so it’s mostly trial and error, which is expensive and frustrating.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Cream Blush!
my answer: I love the consistency and how easy it is to blend the product on the skin, but sometimes they can look splotchy or uneven, so finding the right formula is trickier than you’d think!

What beauty advice would you give your younger self? Share!
Ditch the bangs, they were not helping the acne situation! Start a skincare regimen earlier (particularly SPF!!!!). Wear sunglasses sooner. Talk to primary care doctor sooner about skincare concerns.
