Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 665 – Makeup and Beauty Blog

good day be proud how far youve come
You’re doing great! Keep going.

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 five more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a good start. 🌻

    1. High-rise, mid-rise or low-rise pants?

    High-rise always and forever, mid-rise if I’m desperate, low-rise…NEVER. I rue the day low-rise pants came into my life, hahaha!

    2. A drugstore skin care item you swear by?

    CeraVe Healing Ointment is the stuff!

    3. Would you rather have expensive hair care products or expensive skincare products?

    While I would love both, right now I’ll go with expensive skincare please. 😁

    4. (Fill in the blank) is the key.

    Communication is the key (because nobody can read your mind, obvs). Sleep is the key. Having comfortable underwear is the key. Coffee is the key. Patience is the key… Seriously, we could be here all day… There are so many key things!

    5. Something you’d like to eat today?

    I’ve had a request from my sous-chef to make her lemon tagliatelle pasta for dinner, and that sounds good to my tummy, so that’s happening later on today.

    6. Which would you rather have — 1) an uninterrupted eight hours of sleep, 2) the laundry folded and put away, or 3) a clean house?

    ALL OF THE ABOVE.

    Ohhhh, but if I have to pick one (BOO), I’ll go with a clean house.

    7. Something unusual that you keep in your purse?

    I don’t know how unusual it is, but I always have some sort of snack food — a protein bar, juice pouch, applesauce, etc. — just in case someone around me gets hungry (I’m mostly referring to myself). Food is the fastest way to thwart crabbiness! You can quote me on that. LOL!

    8. Avocado toast — so good or so gross?

    So good when I’m in the mood for it, but I don’t normally crave it, ya know?

    9. A makeup brand that you’ve been into lately?

    Honest Beauty. I never feel like their makeup is trying too hard, if that makes any sense. It’s just enough to get the job done, which has been my style as of late.

    This week I’m trying their Get It Together Eyeshadow Palette, which I’m excited about because of the very wearable neutrals. They also included a straight-up matte black and beige eyeshadows, which are always super handy to have around. I’m hoping the powders are easy to blend because my blending skills are SHOT!

    Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

YOU

A clean house

Dollar bills and pennies.

Avocado toast is good.

MAC. Also, Shiseido

1. High-rise, mid-rise or low-rise pants? Mid-rise.

2. A drugstore skin care item you swear by? Dove Nourishing Body Wash. It doesn’t dry my skin and because it comes in a variety of scents, it doesn’t bore me.

3. Would you rather have expensive hair care products or expensive skincare products? Definitely, skin care. I have virgin hair and very seldom use styling tools so my hair is in good shape.

4. (Fill in the blank) is the key. Thoughtfulness. Be thoughtful in how you communicate with others. The words you choose, your tone of voice, and your body language can make or break the message you want to convey.

5. Something you’d like to eat today? Hmmm . . . I really don’t have a hankering for anything in particular. I’ll give it some thought much later this afternoon when I have to start dinner prep.

6. What would you rather have — 1) an uninterrupted eight hours of sleep, 2) the laundry folded and put away, or 3) a clean house? I could use 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Because of medical conditions, I typically wake up 3-4 times a night.

7. Something unusual that you keep in your purse? For years I’ve kept a ziplock bag filled with Clorox wipes in my purse. My husband and I eat out frequently and often the tables—especially in food courts or fast food places—are far from clean. And, in this day of covid, I wipe down the tables even when they appear to be clean.

8. Avocado toast — so good or so gross? I like avocados but have never liked avocado toast. I just can’t.

9. A makeup brand that you’ve been into lately? The past year, most of my purchases have been Chanel, Clé de Peau, or Guerlain

1. High-rise, mid-rise or low-rise pants? High rise for me and my belly.
2. A drugstore skin care item you swear by? JASON vitamin E oil keeps my skin soothed and crack free, especially since I’m always using hand sanitizer!
3. Would you rather have expensive hair care products or expensive skincare products? If color qualifies as hair care then hair please.
4. (Fill in the blank) is the key. A good attitude is the key!
5. Something you’d like to eat today? Sushi…. mmmm
6. What would you rather have — 1) an uninterrupted eight hours of sleep, 2) the laundry folded and put away, or 3) a clean house? Laundry, apparently I love to wash it, the flog it on the bed for another day…
7. Something unusual that you keep in your purse? Pocket knife? Or hopefully y’all have that too, so it’s not unusual.
8. Avocado toast — so good or so gross? Sogood.
9. A makeup brand that you’ve been into lately? Can it be nail polish? I recently tried Cirque Colors and am enjoying the 3 shades I bought. Hatch, Fairy Floss and Snozzberry.

Uninterrupted eight hours of shut-eye!

iPhone cords roady wrapped in twist-ties.

So gross.

Byredo (the Colour Sticks!)
