Do you like your moisturizer with sunscreen or without? Why?
I actually like to have both. For everyday, I do like something all-in-one, because then I know it’s supposed to work together and all that good stuff. However, I do like to have a moisturizer without, for those occasions where I know I’ll be photographed a lot (e.g. family reunion!) in case the sunscreen washes me out.
How do you come up with color combinations? (For your makeup, duh!) How do you know what to pair with what?
I always look at what I’ve recently reviewed/tried/purchased! I try to do looks using new products to show how they look in practice. In terms of what to pair with what, I’ve found my “favorites” through experimentation.
How important is skincare to you? Are you vigilant with your regimen? Never been a big deal for you?
Skincare wasn’t on my radar until I was about 19 years old–that’s when I first started getting into makeup and learning that it’s important to remove all that makeup, too. I also learned that sunscreen is a must, and man, I wish someone had told me when I was like… two!
Do you leave the house without makeup? Do you have to have something on before you leave?
It’s not often, but I definitely do. I’d say maybe 1 out of 5 times, I’ll go out with nothing, and many times, just tinted moisturizer! (Thank goodness for tinted moisturizer!)
Is there one color of makeup you just can’t resist? Do you end up with lots and lots of near identical shades?
That’s me with coral lipstick… but surprisingly, not too many dupes.
When there’s a good sale, do you feel compelled to buy? Do you end up buying? Do you regret it later?
Yes! It happens every time Sephora has a sale!
