Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 687


1. Sunscreen — lotion or spray?

For my body, I like to do lotion first thing in the morning for my first layer, then touchups throughout the day using a spray.

As for my face, the routine is a little more complicated (story of my makeup life, ha). When I’m not wearing makeup, I’ll usually start with a lotion, then do touchups with either a lotion or spray throughout the day…so when I’m not wearing makeup, it’s pretty straightforward; however, if I will be wearing makeup, then I’ll do two layers of lotion, starting with the first layer, then waiting 10 minutes, then applying the second, waiting a bit more, and THEN I’ll do my makeup.

It’s a process.

2. Cream shadow stick, or liquid eyeshadow with a doe-foot applicator?

As of today, at this moment, let’s go with the cream shadow stick…but that could change at any minute!

3. For your mascara, pick two: waterproof, lengthening, thickening or curling?

Lengthening and curling please!

4. How do you feel about brushed up eyebrows?

I used to LOVE them. Now? Not so much, at least on me. I used to feel like they looked Cara Delevingne-style voluminous, but lately I’ve felt like they’re outright aggressive. Maybe it’s because I don’t have as much natural collagen plumping up my cheeks as I get more and more into my 40s? All I know is, the older I get, the more flattering a softer, less structured and defined brow suits me.

5. Name a type of beauty product you’ve never tried.

Hmm… I’ve never used a tanning lotion. (Really don’t have a need to, LOL.)

6. If you had to microblade your own brows, how do you think you’d do?

Honestly, I don’t know. If I were numbed beyond belief, then maybe not so terribly? They’d be doable, I think…

Now, if, instead, I didn’t have anything to dull the pain? Girl, those brows would be a fright. I just know I’d get halfway through the first one before chickening out on the rest.

7. Choose one brightly colored eyeliner to wear: neon green, cobalt blue, amethyst purple.

Amethyst purple.

8. What do you want on your ice cream sundae?

A smattering of chopped roasted nuts and a maraschino cherry. 😸 I’d also like two small sides of chocolate sauce and caramel sauce! That way I can pick and choose from each.

9. Favorite place to get books?

It used to be the library, but I haven’t been there since pre-Covid times. Lately, I’ve been getting books from an independent bookstore in town called Copperfield’s. It’s mellow inside, and they have a good selection for a bookstore so much smaller than a typical Barnes & Noble. Of course, even if you can’t find the book you want, they’ll order it for you.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
