Thanks to Nicole D. for today's question!

How do you adapt or reject trends based on your personal style?

I like contouring, but I personally like mine subtle, so even though the trend might be to highlight and contour on a daily basis and might seem more extreme, I stay with subtle but might contour more often (because it’s more on my mind than normal)! I’d say in general if it’s a trend that I like or works for my tastes, I’ll use it and apply to the extent that I like but won’t wear it exactly as is trendy if I don’t like it.

What’s been your go-to primer and foundation combination?

I don’t usually wear primer (it’s unnecessary for my needs), but if I do, I go for Too Faced Hangover RX with Tarte Rainforest of the Sea foundation. I have normal-to-dry skin and don’t like to touch-up. Usually if I wear primer, I’ll also use a setting powder and spray (currently, Laura Mercier Loose Setting and Clarins Fix’n Makeup).

I think a lot of brands try to be more inclusive than less inclusive, but there are definitely brands that seem to draw in certain age demographics more than others. Like Estee Lauder is often associated as an “older” brand, even though there are lots of products that would work on a variety of age groups. Similarly, I think brands that use newer slang seem like they’re trying to appeal to a younger audience. I think some brands will target or at least focus more on certain age groups to position themselves rather than trying to go after the entire market.
