    I don’t get a lot of time to watch tv, and there are some shows it just kills me to miss.

    Now while I do my hair and make-up, I watch uploaded versions of the show from Of course, there’s a lot of pausing and rewinding due to noisy hairdryers and having a lash curler in my line of vision.

    I can’t listen to anything most of the time because I’m in a dorm and it would wake up my roommate 😛

    Always something upbeat and fast, but the genre always varies on my iPod!

  5. I don’t have a TV or radio in my bedroom where I do my makeup. I do have a 3 year old who will fuss when he realizes I am off in my room. And his father always has to see what I am up to. Give a mom some peace! 😉

    (while nervously glancing at watch) “baby you don’t need mascara.. they’re perfect already!”

    (tapping foot impatiently) “..maybe i can help you pick out your shoes while you do that..i know you want black stilettoes.. shall i take all your black heels out so you can pick while you put your face on?”

    (still glancing at watch) “.. you’re not doing anything to your hair are you..?”

    I actually watch TV during my makeup! But mostly it’ll be on MTV or VH1 cuz I love me some music!!

    There is always music playing in our house, but while I’m doing my make-up I usually get my husband in the back ground making comments about how complicated all the make-up application seems to him, as well as comments on how long it takes :-)

  10. I like to just be alone in the bathroom with no distractions when I am doing my makeup! haha

    I have certain CDs I do makeup to. It has to be ones I am really familiar with (so I can concentrate on my makeup and still sing along) and not too many really slow songs.
    Some favorites:
    Metric – Grow Up and Blow Away
    Tegan and Sara – So Jealous
    The White Stripes – White Blood Cells
    Regina Spektor – Begin to Hope
    The Dresden Dolls
    Sarah Slean – Night Bugs
    Arctic Monkeys – Favourite Worst Nightmare
    The Organ – Grab That Gun
    Hawksley Workman – Last Night We Were the Delicious Wolves
    Shakira – ¿Dónde Están Los Ladrones?
    Nina Gordon – Tonight and the Rest of My Life

    I’m usually in such deep concentration that I don’t hear anything.
