What do you look for in beauty/makeup packaging? What’s important to you?
I like classy/elegant packaging overall that’s still functional.
If you were using MAC Blue Sorcery Eyeshadow?, 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 today’s look book product!
Did you come up with a look you’d like to share featuring today’s product? You can link to your images, embed your images using HTML, or you can submit your images via e-mail to share them with readers to help give them inspiration on how to use the product!
How long does it take you to put on your makeup (on average)? Are you a five minutes or less kind of person? An hour?
From start to finish, probably twenty minutes if I’m doing anything I haven’t done before.

Do you wear makeup when your skin is acting up? Like a breakout? Dry patches? (What-have-you!)
I wear what I feel I need to not be totally self-conscious about it, but I do try to only wear it when I’m going out for longer than 10-15 minutes (e.g., not just the grocery store).
