Do you do touch-ups throughout the day? Or do you just pray it all holds together? Are you the “once I’m done, I’m done” kind of person, or do you prefer to double-check to make sure everything is good during the day and fix anything that’s amiss?
Touch-ups? Next to never! I might touch-up or re-do my lips, but you will not see me fixing my face or eyeshadow whatsoever!
There has been a bit of buzz over beauty blogs and their place in the past few days, beginning with WWD’s article on beauty in the blogosphere as well as ten of their picks for today’s hottest beauty blogs. Following that was a less relevant piece where retailer Target refused to speak with bloggers because they are part of nontraditional media. Target asserted they wanted to focus only on traditional media outlets, because they reach their core audience. Today’s latest article covering beauty blogs was published by the New York Times seems to show beauty bloggers are in it for the free stuff and swag treatment that was previously reserved only for editors and industry insiders.
I’m curious to know what you, the readers–the most important facet–think of beauty bloggers working with brands and their representatives, free samples, and even “swag.” Does the association/link between beauty blogger and company public relations representative taint the blogger’s viewpoint? Are beauty bloggers just in it for the goodies?
A few response pieces to the NYT article by fellow beauty bloggers can be found here and here.
As fabulous as your makeup is, what about your style/clothes? Are you just a jeans and shirt kind of girl or are you dressing to the nines just to go to the grocery store? What’s your style?
You know me, cropped pants and a sweater. Tank top in the summer! I’m so simple.
How much do you spend a month on beauty products? Do you know or are you afraid to know?
I probably spend $200-300 a month, depending on how many collections MAC puts out!

If you were using MAC’s Russian Red, what look would you create with it? What shadows would you use? What would you use on cheeks? Anything added to the lips?
