10. Do you use eye cream?
- Yes and No.  I need to.  I should have been using it religiously starting at least at 23!  I have a few fine lines and I can tell when i do put an eye cream on how quickly it absorbs it.  So everyone use your eye creams you will be happier you did in the long run!!!

11. Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
- Yes, I do.  I get a lot on my cheekbone area.  I have not been using my highlighters much at all since these bad breakouts because of course it makes them stand out a lot more.  I''m blaming my cell phone for this as its mainly on my left side that its the worse which is were i normally talk on the phone..Our phones are sat down random places and others touching it... I can also i think blame my pillow, i need to wash it more then i currently do.  I also do not need to fall asleep with makeup on as that  makes it worse and more germs build up..ewww gag...i think theres even a pillow spray out now for that?? I hardly ever get breakouts on my forehead...i use to a lot when i was young...I get a lot on my temples and actually have some tiny acne scaring there.. I mainly get them cheek area, and now a lot on my chin :(


12. Did you ever have to use pro-activ?
- yes, and it did NOT work for me.

13. What foundation do you use?
- I use several different ones as there are always new ones coming out (some new ones i want to try is the new revolon lumi one?) I'm currently finishing up the maybelline instant age rewind eraser treatment makeup.  I find this particular foundation better for people with dry skin as to me it's greasy.  The other one i'm using is the maybelline as well and it is the dream foam..i love how cool it is on the skin and the damp feeling..it needs to be blended quickly though!

14. How about concealer?
- I've been using my sue devitt automatic camouflage concealer.  I purchased two of these never having tried to the brand because it was so pricey i only paid $5 each for these i think they were normally $18 or more.  My ulta i guess clearanced the line out. The concealer is so creamy and goes on and blends in great and covers.  I love also its in stick form!!

15. Do you know your undertone color?
- I don't know! What do you think I am?

16. What do you think of fake eyelashes?
- I love them!  My lashes are not short but they are not long I find them to be a medium length. I always envied women that could apply them so i spent an entire day trying and finally got it..so now if we are going out i always put them on!

17. Did you know that you're supposed to change mascara every 3 months?
- Yes! Anyone who is dedicated to trying new products and loves everything beauty had better know this! I always change mine!

20. Do you have a Mac pro card?
- Nah! i wouldn't need one..

21. What makeup tools do you use in makeup application?
- I use my fingers when applying foundation about half the time..All my brushes are luuux brand so i use the powder brush, blush brush, flat shader brush, tapered crease brush.  I normally do not use an eyelash curler inless i'm dealing with fake lashes as i feel it damages your real lashes.

22. Do you use makeup base or primer for your eyes?
- ALWAYS.  When I do its normally the E.L.F $1 one as it is very similar to urban decay primer potion.  Second i use NYX ones that are in the jars usually the one in skintone.  They are ultra creamy.

23. For the face?
- Not always since it's summer time and i try to have as little on my face as absolutely needed.   When I do i use GOSH.

24. What is your favorite eyeshadow shade?
- It would have to be an eyeshadow single but inside it was a duo and it was called Lovey Dovey and it was by Too Faced cosmetics. Its was the perfect day to night combo.

- hardly ever!

27. What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
- I love them, i love how beautiful and rich the colors are and the staying power. I just of course hate the mess that comes along with them..but the newer designed minerals mate plate helps that... i can store them with out have to open them back up in the little containers and pour back in i only get out what i need...so it makes me able to use my pigments you can purchase those here:

42. In your opinion, what is the best makeup line?
- The best makeup line drugstrore would be revlon or maybelline High end would be Mac or Urban Decay

43. What do you think of makeup?

44. What is your favorite "quote" related to makeup?
- Beauty is about perception, not about makeup-up.  I think the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking ones self.  You can't put on make-up or dress yourself , or do your hair with any sort of fun or joy if you're doing it from a position of correction. -Kevyn Aucoin

45. If you were a makeup tool/product, what would you be and why?

blush or bronzer: Blush! I'm really enjoying NYC Blushable Creamsticks!

lip gloss or lipstick: Lip Gloss Mostly. I'm loving a cheaper brand: Palladio $5.99 Purchase at Ulta or Sally Beauty Supply. I love the scent and they all smell the same which is cupcakes or vanilla icing :), also the colors are great. Most Lip gloss are just that a gloss with no color or very light color. These usually go on just how they look in the tube. I'm using Clearly Coral now :)

eye liner or mascara: I love both but if I could choose only one it would be Mascara. Right now i'm loving Rimmel Volume Flash macara in the Pink tube :) and I use Mac Zoom lash for my lower lashes!

foundation or concealer: Foundation. I do not really need concealer..Luckily so far I do not get dark circles under my eyes or anything..I'm sure thats not long away lol..But foundations my skin is really not bad enough to need a full coverage but I do have an uneven skintone which is why I have been using Clinique Even Better Foundation. I also some days use my Benefit Some Kind of Gorgeous. I really like the feel and the packaing on the benefit!

neutral or color eye shadow: Sadly I just can't choose one here. I have been really loving the neautral looks...and i'm thinking of getting the urban decay naked palette..although the too faced palettes look just as good for 35..So is an extra $9 really worth it? Probably hahah!

pressed or loose eye shadows: PRESSED PRESSED PRESSED all the way lol..I just make a HUGE mess with loose eyeshadows. I love mineral makeup too and I have been using it off and on trying out a new brand and I love it except the mess it makes..i'm just not very graceful I guess..

OPI or china glaze:
I think OPI is overprices as well as essie. I love china glaze so I guess the answer is China Glaze and I have a ton of a way cheaper polish called Sinful Colors. They are a 1.99 at walgreens and sometimes they run them on sale for .99...I love the colors they show up and last well!
