What part of your beauty routine would you love to have a professional do for you?


What part of your beauty routine would you love to have a professional do for you? (In a dream world, where you wouldn’t have to do it any more, if you didn’t want to!) Manicurist? Hair stylist? Makeup artist?

Hairstylist, no question.

Definitely a hairstylist here as well. I can do my nails and my makeup (not as well as a professional, but definitely passable) but man, am I at a loss for what to do with my hair!

I’d love to have a pro apply eyeshadow on my mono eyelid. Whenever I see closeup of people’s eyes, it’s like a galaxy or a night sky full of stars (especially you, Christine!). So many wonderful colors, yet, I can’t do them justice.

Eye makeup, specifically false eyelashes and the cat eye, I have not mastered those yet. Also a hairstylist would be great, especially on foggy days!

Skin care is really big for me and makeup looks a million times better with great skin. Naturally my answer is going to be a facials. Unlimited facials. Peels. Microdermabrasion. I want it all! And facial massages at the end!

Manicurist, I’m terrible! I would probably like to have a hairstylist on hand too, but not for everyday (my hair only just goes past my ears, seems a bit of a waste LOL).

It would be my hair for sure. I work at Clinique and have for almost 4 years so I can do my makeup and others very easily. Hair I need help though.

They can only cut and color my hair as well as all that entails along with it, no styling though. I don’t style my hair. The cut does that. As far as my face.. Nobody is touching that! (Unless deemed acutely necessary) It gives me the creeps. O.O I’ve never had my brows done but have always wanted to.. But I don’t trust anyone! Unless I’m back in California.. Then, maybe. ๐Ÿ˜€ Other than that, people can hand me things! Haha ๐Ÿ˜›

I need to have my hair done! I can’t style it to save my life. Also I want to go to have one of those deep-cleansing and relaxing facials because I never seem to be able to put on a face mask and relax at home… I’m happy with my makeup skills, although I should play around more to get a feel for the showier looks, but it would be nice to have a pro do my makeup just so I could glean some tips and see how another person would go about doing my face.

Waxing! A hairstylist on retainer would also be great! But I mean if we’re dreaming I’d like everything to be professionally done! Accept mascara, that’s my job. I can barely stand someone else doing my eyeliner but I can’t stand someone doing my mascara at all!

i don’t dye my hair and i can cut it very well,even the layers… so no hairstylist…
make up i am good at that too
but mani-pedi well i suck…i love natural nails and avoid using fake nails as much as i can also i’m prone to nail biting so i really need a good mani-pedi once in every two weeks…mani and pedi both are fairly cheap in where i live so i have my on mani-pedi expert to go to , which is a yaaaay

Hairstylist! I hate doing my hair. If I could have someone blow it out for me just once a week, that would be great! I can make a good blow out last a full week. I did my own blow out last week during the holidays (because I had time) and I’m currently on day five but definitely gotta wash it tonight or tomorrow morning ๐Ÿ™

I’ll go with hairdressing as well,, LOL! I do nearly nothing to my hair – I don’t even comb it sometimes (shhh…it seems to come right by itself).

I could probably do with a hairstylist. My hair is very long- way past my waist. I both love it and hate it. I don’t do much to it and since I stopped straightening my hair it looks fairly bland most of the time. I’d love to have someone make it look awesome every day, if possible (not asking for much am I)!

As for everything else, well, I really enjoy applying my skincare and makeup so I wouldn’t want someone else to do it for me. Nails? I keep them short and rarely paint them so I’m not fussed about getting a manicure unless it’s a special occasion.

Hairstylist! I’d love to wear my hair a different way every day and I don’t have the patience and/or talent to do that myself ๐Ÿ˜€

I would definitely love to have my hair professionally styled. Maybe have a professional complete highlighting and contouring, I never do either.

I really enjoy applying my own makeup, but I’d love to have someone around to do my nails and/or toes whenever I needed! I hate doing my own nails because I’m not patient enough.

Brows, since I’ve only ever had them done once and I’m not really sure about shaping for my face. I get lazy with them too! And lashes would be nice since I’ve never had extensions or anything & mine are short & flat! ๐Ÿ˜€

Brows and (artfully) doing some false lashes! I can do a Halloween-ish Rue Paul look just fine….but would love to have some well-done, well-placed falsies for a real occasion!

Hairstylist for sure. Maybe someone for brows too. A makeup artist would be nice for special occasions so I wouldn’t call it “routine.”

I’d definitely say hair stylist too. I usually end up tying my hair up – either bun or ponytail. Can’t blow dry my hair even if my life depended on it and straightening or curling takes too long because it’s long, thick and I have tons.

On a daily basis? Hair stylist for sure. But I love getting my makeup done… it feels so neat. If I wasn;t such a huge control freak about my makeup I would have gone with that.
