shakesperare commented on the post, What’s your least favorite part of your beauty routine? 3 months, 3 weeks ago

I hate painting my nails. It seems to take forever to dry and they always smudge. If I put acrylic on my nails, I hate soaking them off in acetone.

I just have Carmex lip balm and wipes and hand sanitizer. I am one of the few people who changes what’s in their makeup bag everyday. I put different makeup stuff in my bag based on what I am wearing for the day.

I ask them why is it that what I do to myself their business.

I change it up a bit depending on the family that I am around. My hubby doesn’t like lipstick so, when I pucker up, I tend not to wear any. If I am around my sisters, I tend to wear the most expensive makeup and […]

I have. I just bought Mac’s Siss lipstick. It, to me, looked awesome against my NC 45 skintone in the store. However, when I got into bright sunlight, it looked liked I had concealer on my lips. Ugh!

Most definitely. On days when I am feeling low, I wish I didn’t have to put on make up and face the world. When I do feel ill, but just have to go on the road, I just put on foundation, setting powder, and some lip balm.

I have quite a few deal breakers: Eyeshadow that are powdery and that has a lot of fallout, lipsticks that are too drying, lipsticks that are not true to color based on the packaging, lipsticks with no formula […]

I would first run out of foundation. Barring this, I would run out of blotting powder. I have tons of many other makeup products.

I would say foundation. I have uneven, blotchy skin so foundation would be the best item for me. I think its like art. You cant have a masterpiece painting on a dirty canvas.

I just simply love Elizabeth Arden’s Red Door. I have never been without a bottle of this classic fragrance since 1988. I just have to have it.

I have always admired the skill and creativity it takes to be a great makeup artist. However, I am blessed with no form of dexterity and wouldn’t even bother attempting something in this field.

I don’t know how new the brand is, but lately I have been crushing on La Femme cosmetics. I saw people raving about their blushes on Youtube. Now, I have their blushes, eye shadows and lipsticks.

I will always use Vaseline. It soothes my sore lips and is a great eye makeup remover. I also use it when I have dry feet.

Another product that I will always use is Head and Shoulder’s shampoo.

I cant think […]

My husband has nightmares about how much I send on makeup. He thinks that its money that could have been put to better use. He’s a good sport about it, though. Whatever makes his wife happy. My sisters love it. […]

shakesperare commented on the post, What’s your “my-lips-but-better” shade? 4 months, 3 weeks ago

I would have to say the Milani Color Statement lipstick in Teddy Bare. It just looks like my lips, but with a sheen. A close second would be Mac’s mineralize lipstick in Glamour Era.

I love dinner party looks. I love wearing blackberry lips ( so vampy) and exaggerated eyelashes. I also love smoky, glittery eyes. Overall, I tend to go for dark purples, bronze and golden colors.

shakesperare commented on the post, How do you handle makeup touch-ups during the day or night? 4 months, 3 weeks ago

I carry blotting power and my lipstick of the night. Mostly, I wear a matte lipstick because the lasting power is good, but it can sometimes feel a bit too dry and cakey, and hence, the reapplication.

I would hate to hit pan on Nars Ride Up to the Moon palette. It was love at first sight. So sad that it’s limited edition.
