Thanks to Heather for today's question!

How do your personal features influence the makeup you use?

I think the type of skin I have, what my skin reacts to, those are things that influence more heavily than others – I tend to stay away from anything super, super matte but also anything over-the-top dewy (I’m normal-to-dry, mostly normal these days!). I have a decent amount of lid space but find that lower eyeliner helps make my eyes look bigger (learned this from a MAC senior artist, Victor C., years ago).

  • Haul: Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation and BB cream, Clarins quads and setting spray
  • Weekend plans: A nice low-key weekend at home, which just sounds divine right now!
  • What was the last show/series you binge-watched?: My husband’s been watching a lot of Fraiser (no longer on the air), so I’ve watched quite a bit with him as it is on, but I’m a terrible binge-watcher, because I can’t really stand to sit still and watch TV for longer than a half hour!
