Linky Dinky Doo: Beauty Products

January 26, 2014

So I haven't really had much to write about the past few weeks... I think we are still un-winding from the holidays. So I've been linking up like a madman!!! Sorry if that's a blogger no no.

Today's Sunday Social link up is hosted by Neely & Ashley over at Ashley Lately.


Today is all about beauty products... If you know me personally, you are probably laughing right now because although I love beauty products, most of my friends see me in yoga pants, a hoodie and my hair up in a bun. Buuuuuut, I'll give you my answers anyway. Just pretend I am a super fashionable beauty queen (riiiiiiight). 

Here we go...

1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup? 
I was kind of a late bloomer... I swam in HS so I didn't bother with makeup. I finally started wearing a little eyeshadow and lipgloss my Senior year in HS.

2. What are your top 3 beauty products?
Cannot live without my babylips in peach (since it's basically tinted chapstick, it prob doesn't count). So, my Brenda Christian eyebrow pencil, Makeup Forever Mat and MAC mineral powder. 

3. What is one beauty product you don't leave home without? 
Sunglass!!! Does that count? Hmmm, if not it would be Babylips... I loooove looooove looooove it! But one of my new years resolutions was to always have on mascara and something on my lips so that is something I am working on. 

4. What is your daily beauty routine? 
Shower, brush my teeth and walk out the door.  My skin is something that I am really starting to take seriously... I have always been really lucky to look young (probably the 1/2 Japanese part of me), but I have def taken that for granted. My sister in law is a licensed esthetician and an RN so she has turned me on to some pretty great products. So in the morning I wash my face with my Clairsonic, then put on my Murad mositurizer. After that... if I am not going to the gym, then I put on my foundation, powder, eyebrows, usually a little blush and contour. If I am not too lazy, I will put on a neutral eyeshadow, eyeliner, & mascara. But.... I always wash my face in the morning and at night... No matter how tired I am. At night I use my Clairsonic and put on Nerium night cream. It's helping the wrinkles that I had no idea I had. 

5. What is your favorite hair/makeup product you have discovered in the past year? 
Probably to use blush and to contour... It really does brighten my face. I really really really want to try out the Nars contour brush. 

and voila!

  1. I need to learn to contour. Especially since I'm getting older and my face shape is changing. Great answers, giving me something to think about!

    1. There are some really good tutorials online =)

  2. What a great NY resolution. Since I don't wear a lot of make up I should start doing that. Eyes and lips daily ! I love baby lips too ! I wish I had all of them

    1. it helps me look alive and not like a homeless person LOL
