My favorite part is blush, but only because sometimes probably by accident i get the perfect cheek and it transforms my face. When that doesn’t work out I still enjoy doing my eyes because I can make them look bigger and brighter by not really doing a lot and that makes me happy :]

My eyeshadow…I really think my eyes are my best feature and putting on eyeshadow let’s me play them up…us it’s the one place I can get creative with looks and color.

My favorite step would have to be…. mascara. I have to do this daily.. shadow or no shadow. It totally transforms my eyes and makes them all the more gorgeous! And its probably one of the quickest steps which is always nice, lol

Applying foundation… I like to see my skin look even and I can just do that & feel fine & not do anything else in the makeup process. (I like doing everything else, but if I had to run out that is what I would do).

I’m a lipgloss junkie, but I’d have to say the eyes are my favorite part because there’s more you can do with them. I love pretty eyeshadows and eyeliners.

Does it count, at the end, when you look it over and think about how nice it looks, or what you should have taken more care with/done different?

If that doesn’t, than I’m going to go with the eyes. Particularly mascara and eyeliner.

I don’t think I can narrow this down to just one!
foundation/concealer-because I love the flawless look after its on
eyeshadow-endless possibilities here and way too much fun!
brows-this is my thing. I specialize in brows, have been doing other peoples for years, and am insanely picky about them!

It’s probably choosing and putting on my lipstick/lipgloss combo for the day. Sometimes I get anxious and put on my lip products before even putting on my foundation.

i love . . . love . . . putting blush on, contouring, highlighting i love it!! lol It’s my favorite part 😀 Mostly because I love NARS so much!!!!

Wow a hard question, I don’t know anyone personally as into makeup as me and feel at home! (No one would or has ask me this because I try not to be too flashy w/ makeup BUT HAVE TO PLAY!!!:)
Christine, you offer something special daily to look forward too, so thank you!!
I would say eyes in general…I have a skincare routine I want to get over with and am really excited at the possibilities with color!
My fav now is blsck eyeliner with shadow layered over, (esp. Make Up For Ever Star Powder in White/Turquoise 944! This is the most beautiful I’ve seen) 🙂 (But I always get infatuated with something else, like any other beauty junkie!!!!!)

Blush ! Since I rarely wear eyeshadows on daily bases, I play the most with perfecting my cheeks 😉 It’s also so nice seeing your face going from ‘uh’ to ‘woooa!’, just with adding a little colour and sheen, maybe contouring and such !

I love doing eyes, but I must agree, I just love the way mascara pulls the whole look together. It just rounds off the whole face so beautifully.

Definitely eyeshadow for me. When I’m doing my eyeshadow, it’s really almost like I’m painting or coloring. I know that sounds juvenile, but I have a lot of fun with it!

Eyes! I love coming up with a good combination for the day. And now that I’ve finally found a good liner/mascara combo that works for me, they look awesome!

lips :]

i love love color on my lips because my lips are so pigmented, it looks like i bit a tomato. and i dont like that :/ so i love being able to change the shade of my lips 😛

From a visceral perspective, moisturizing makes me groan with ecstasy. From a creative perspective, doing my eyes is rewarding. So many colors, so little time! I despise curling my lashes and have finally decided to skip this step. I never see an appreciable difference by curling anyway. My lashes stand at attention after I apply my mascara. I hate doing my lips because I have a tiny mouth and it takes painstaking effort to give my lips fullness that doesn’t look fake. I often don’t apply lipstick until I’m in the car and ready to drive away from the garage.

I think I put a little too much thought into this question! 😎

eyeshadow for sure, that’s the best part of my morning and when i get ready period, i love eyeshadow.
and lately ive loved to do my face post foundation, mixing different bronzers, hilights and blushes.
