Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 781

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 781

So…what is the Monday Poll?

Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007).

1. What did you do over the weekend?

Oh my goodness, so many dance team things for Connor – rehearsal Friday night, and then performances on Saturday and Sunday. There was a lot of matte, long-wearing red lipstick in the mix.

2. Cheese or butter?

This is a legit tough decision. Cheese, I guess, because it’s an easy way for me to get some protein. Today I’d love a burrata.

3. Something that makes you memorable?

Between my voice and my face, I’m a pretty animated person, LOL. And when I’m really comfortable with people, I’d like to think that I’m pretty funny, too.

4. A foundation that works for you?

I haven’t worn a proper foundation in ages, so does a tinted moisturizer count? I really like Urban Decay Hydromaniac.

5. A foundation that doesn’t work for you?

A while back I got a sample for the Ilia Skin Tint and it just didn’t work for me. The color was off and it felt heavy on my cheeks.

6. Small town or big city?

Somewhere in between.

7. Small things that make your day better?

Listening to whatever song I’m in the mood for on Spotify, having a car that I know isn’t going to break down at any given moment, working out first thing in the morning, having the birds chirping in the early morning hours as my alarm clock.

8. A piece of clothing you wish you still had?

GIRL. If I could only turn back time and keep all the fabulous ’90s clothes I had back in college! If I could only pick just one thing, though, I’d bring back the black, wide leg pinstripe overalls from the Gap that I wore to death circa my sophomore and junior year.

9. A chance encounter that changed your life forever?

When I was in my early 20s, I was in a Las Vegas bathroom in the wee hours of the morning. There was a lady washing her hands who kept staring at me. She then pulled me aside and said that she read auras, and proceeded to tell me how mine was orange and one of the brightest she’d ever seen. She also said that I had a strong presence of protective angels around me. I don’t know if she was for real, but from that point forward I carried the belief that my watchful angels are always with me. It’s comforting to me and has allowed me to move throughout the world with a degree of confidence that’s been helpful.

I hope that this week is full of fabulous lipstick colors and that your hair is doing what you want it to!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
