We get to talk about beauty today for Friend Friday!! Let’s get to it!
What’s your favorite drug store makeup product and your favorite higher-end product?
OMG, that’s like asking a shoe addict to pick their favorite pair!
Right now, my favorite drug store makeup product is this Hard Candy Eyeshadow in Super Nova. It’s a rich, deep purple shade with little glitter specks that are super cute for a night out! I also like the fact that it’s baked, so you don’t get eyeshadow powder everywhere (I’m so good for that!).My favorite higher-end product right now is this mascara from Estee Lauder. I reviewed it for last month’s Yahoo! Shine Beauty Guru assignment and I fell in love with it! It gets your lashes really long and all you need is one coat to get the job done!
I absolutely cannot live without my press powder. I use Covergirl’s Clean Pressed Powder for Oily skin and it’s an absolute live saver when it comes to my oily nose! That baby can shine up in two seconds! All I need is a quick little dab on my nose and my face looks just as fresh as it did when I walked out the door!
What’s the best hair product you’ve ever used?
Two Words – Carol’s Daughter
My hair has been transitioning now for ten months and it has been acting all kinds crazy! My natural hair no longer responds well to the products I used to use and it lets me know about it –my hair was extremely dry, my scalp was extremely irritating, and my natural roots would frizz up on a dime! So I had to switch to products that had more natural oils and didn’t have any type of parabens or sulfates. So a few weeks ago I went to Sephora and picked up Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Shampoo and Hair Smoothie. OMG! My hair has never been so happy! I’m almost afraid to switch up and use something else at this point!
Fess up, what’s the worst beauty look you’ve tried to rock and look back at now with a little shame or apprehension that you actually did that?
Back in the day, my mom hardly ever let me go to the salon so I had to become a DIY when it came to my hair – hence the source of some bad hair ideas! One bad hairstyle I wore was when I recreated the braids Da Brat wore back in the 90’s. I went out and bought those blasted colored rubber bands and called myself looking so fly in them. Yeah they were cool then, I guess, but thank goodness I don’t have any photos of that one!
My eyeshadow says it all! LOL. I love, love, LOVE playing up my eyes more than anything else so that’s how I add my own personality to my beauty regimen. No color is off limits to me and I’m always trying to find new ways to remix the palettes and colors I have to come up with new looks. It’s where I can get super creative!
Let’s talk ladies! What are your makeup must haves? What horrendous beauty look have you rocked? How does your makeup show off your personality?
