I love them.  I haven’t worn them in a long time.  However, I just got some in a giveaway from Beatz and I’m looking forward to wearing them again.

-Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?

Yes.  My mother reminds me all the time.

-What brand of mascara do you use?
I use lots of different brands.  But my main brand is Avon’s Super Shock.

-Sephora or MAC?
I’m on a tight(er) budget so I don’t go near either.  I’ve only bought 2 items, ever, from MAC.
And I’m trying to remember if I ever both anything at Sephora.

-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?


-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?

I use Snowmandce on Ebay.  But I am fickle.

Pencil, mostly, but I do use liquid too.

If I say I haven’t, will I jinx myself?

I love to play with them.

Oh yea!  I have lots of that too.  My fav is an Urban Decay duo. Don’t remember the name, but at $18, it was the most expensive lip gloss that I have ever bought.

Milani-Luminous; Flirt-Hard Candy

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?

-Do you like drugstore makeup?

Hell, ya! 

-Do you go to CCO’s? (cosmetic company outlets)
Sure.  Orlando has tons of outlet stores.  But, don’t be fooled. They don’t usually have any cheaper prices than those at the regular mall stores.

I did take a seminar for a MLM makeup company.  I, also, took a couple of classes that was offered by Nikki Bryant Salon, Orlando.

I’ve gotten pretty good at it.

Beyonce; Sandra Bullock

-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Before I was 35, I would have said no.  But now, I don’t care as much.  If I’m not working that day, I probably won’t wear makeup.

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I think I look very washed out.

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I’m so fickle, that’s hard to say.  I love Avon for skincare. I love snowmandce for my shadows, but I use lots of over brands.

-What do you think of Makeup?

Makeup is fun. It gives me a creative outlet.  I enjoy the ritual of putting on makeup in the morning. And I have just as much fun shopping for it.  Reading makeup/nail blogs is my porn.
