How did you learn to apply makeup? Share!
I learned some pre-YouTube tutorial days mostly by just seeing someone else’s eye makeup applied and liking the shape or style, then mimicking it later on – then lots and lots of practice. Some of the people I liked looking at their looks for started YouTube channels, so I’d watch them here and there. I also had Kevyn Aucoin’s Making Faces books, which I had gone through before I even had makeup to apply, but I didn’t really visit it much once I had it (go figure!) for quite some time.

Revlon Snow Peach is a gorgeous pink-coral, and I know that a lot of readers had trouble tracking it down. These were three of my top picks for permanent shades that were similar, but you can see even more dupes over at The Dupe List.

If you had $25 to spend at Sephora, what would you buy? Share!
Marc Jacobs Beauty Intro(vert) is kind of a go-to for me, and it’s exactly $25. If you wanted a couple more items, then two of Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencils + a Jack Black Lip Balm

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Wide Nail Polish Brushes!
my answer: Sometimes they are TOO wide! When they’re too wide, it’s hard to apply polish to my narrower nails, like my pinky, and I think I have slightly wider/larger nails than average so I can only imagine this being even more frustrating for others. I love a slightly wider brush for better application, as it reduces streaks and seems to apply more evenly.
