Friend Makin' Monday- Makeup!

Is another beautiful Monday over here, it kind of feels like fall, even tomorrow they said it will be up to 60 degrees! Now this is my kind of winter (even though I have to admit it scares me a little bit, nature is so freaky) So on to the goodies.

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add

your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: Makeup Favorites


  1. Do you wear makeup everyday? I used to but now is only when I have to stop somewhere instead of dropping people off. I made a promise that I would put more effort into my appearance since I notice I was letting myself go with just wearing sweats all the time.
  2. Does your routine change if you’re going out with friends/on a date/to a party? If so, how? Yes, I put more stuff, such as foundation, full on lips, eyes, etc. During the day I wear a tinted moisturizer.
  3. Are you loyal to one brand, or do you use different brands for different things? Nope, I'm a makeup whore and I like trying different things to see what works best.
  4. Do you wear primer/concealer? If so, what’s your favorite kind? Yes to both. Right now I'm loving Benefit POREfessional and DHC primer. My concealer is by MAC.
  5. What’s your favorite brand of foundation? None so far. What I have tried is ok but I can get whatever and be ok with it. I do want to try CHANEL VITALUMIÈRE though
  6. Do you use blush and/or bronzer? If so, what’s your favorite kind? Yes again. I have a Tarte palette that I love that have both. I also love NARS cactus flower and Benefit Dandelion for blush.
  7. Do you wear eye shadow/eye liner? If so, what’s your favorite kind? I love Urban Decay and MAC shadows-specially the paint pots.Eyeliners: Urban Decay 24/7 and Tarte.
  8. What’s your favorite kind of mascara? Here I'm cheap I don't believe more expensive brands would do any difference. I love the pink/green one by Maybelline and Revlon Growluscious.
    Lipstick? Lip gloss? Both? Favorite?
    Again yes! Love MAC, ELF (hellu? for $1), and anything in between, I'm not picky.
  9. Do you wear nail polish regularly? If so, share a few of your favorite brands/colors. Yes. I have a post about my nail polish collection. I used to have my nails done but now I do them at home (and getting really good at it- Thanks Youtube). Favorites include Julep, Zoya, OPI.
    1. How do you remove your makeup at the end of the day? I use MAC wipes (because is the only one I have left) but I love the BJ's brand of wipes. Then wash my face with Kiehls face wash.
    2. Do you feel prettier when you’re wearing makeup? Prettier, um? I would say more polished. I do like when I do my eyes since they seem to be brighter.
    3. Do you have any beauty tips that you could pass along? Yes, don't go to bed with your makeup, always, ALWAYS wear sunblock, a little white in the inner conner of your eyes does wonders. At least once, try false lashes. And a smile is the best makeup a girl could ever wear.

    Now it’s your turn to answer the questions! Don’t forget to say hi to other bloggers! And also be sure to come back and leave a link to your FMM post in the comments! Happy Monday friends!

    Thanks for visiting my blog...I think I need to come to you for make-up tips...You have quite the collection there. ;) For a non make-up wearer like myself, I'm surprised I'm familiar with a lot of the brands you metioned, Nars, Urban Decay.. etc. After my "smokey eye" disaster I stopped viewing Youtube Make-up tutorials...I guess it's time to start up again...Do u do tutorials?

    Great tips there, and thanks for topping by mine! False lashes can be so much fun! I love them, though I don't have any ops to actually wear them... lol.
