So…what is the Monday Poll?

Nos, ez nem pontosan szavazás. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random listing of concerns I’ve been putting out to visitors every Monday morning for the past 10 (!) years. (It’s like a kickstart for your brain.) I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, as well as I hope you enjoy reading mine.

1. So, your makeup routine — what’s the simplest part?

Of my routine routine? My brows, for sure.

But they utilized to provide me so much grief. Now, though? ever since I grew them out? All I do is I fill them in with a brow pencil, which is usually the amaze-balls MAC Brow Sculpt. then I comb with them with spoolie on the back end, as well as end with a bit bit of benefit Ready, Set, Brow Gel.


That’s it, as well as everything takes less than a minute.

Granted, I’m not consumed anymore about getting my brows to look completely symmetrical. I utilized to be a few years ago, however I don’t mind now when they look a bit untidy as well as more more naturally bushy as well as unkempt.

2. as well as what’s the hardest part?

Bőr. My foundation, concealer as well as powder. It’s since I’m admittedly consumed with getting my skin to look as natural as possible, as well as the microsecond that I begin to feel like my protection looks heavy, I just can’t take it. I’ll eliminate whatever as well as begin around again.

As I’ve gotten older, my tolerance for full-coverage foundation has decreased, even though I still believe it looks outstanding in pics. I still wear full-coverage sometimes, however now I generally spend a great deal of time blending as well as layering to end up with something that appears like I’m not using anything at all… It’s kind of a catch 22. I spend a great deal of time figuring out what formulas are going to work for mu skin on any type of provided day.

Szóval igen. Bőr. By far, it’s the most complex as well as time consuming part of my rigmarole.

3. exactly how well do you believe you’d handle super stardom/being a famous celebrity?

If we’re speaking about Katy Perry-level famous, I don’t believe I’d handle it well. I can’t envision not being able to leave my home without dodging professional photographers in my front yard.

On the other hand, if I were indie film star famous, where I might still get a cup of coffee down the street as well as perhaps only be acknowledged by a handful of people, I believe I might handle that gracefully.

But anything more than that would push my capability to be polite.

4. exactly how commonly do your nails break?

Almost never (knocks on wood)! That said, I have other beauty struggles. Like, my hair is difficult to manage, I have a bald area in my brow that just won’t go away (I’m speaking to YOU, Raul), as well as I dealt with acne when I was younger, however I’ve never truly had to concern about my nails breaking.

Here’s a funny thing, though: I realized that I may be expecting when my nails started breaking! a number of fingernails as well as one of my toe nails broke over a short period of time, which had never occurred before. So I understood something was up.

5. metallic lips: indeed or no?

Yes-ish. I like ’em, however I’m more of a light opalescent metallic type of girl.

I can’t offer with full-on melted metal lips.

6. Can you share a piece of life/beauty advice?

Uh…beauty-wise, don’t hang out on Instagram as well much or it’ll provide you a complex.

Life-wise, here’s something that my good friend Erika stated to me the other day, as well as it truly resonated. She stated that some days you have to be comfortable reducing the bar for yourself — reducing your expectations, like truly LOW. In other words, sometimes providing your finest has to mean just enabling your home to be a total mess or accepting that the infant is still in her pajamas at 3 p.m. or as well as making cereal for dinner. as well as you have to enable yourself that sometimes as well as be fine with it.

Happy Monday, my friend

My brushes are washed, my desk is lacking piles of paper, as well as I’m excited because… Connor turns one this week!!! Yup, officially, she won’t be an infant anymore. She’ll be a toddler. Her birthday is this Thursday, however we’re going to have a bit celebration for her with just us as well as the grandparents on Saturday.

I’m likewise starting to get spring fever, as well as I can’t even begin to tell you exactly how excited I am about that. I can’t wait to wear gowns as well as sandals again…

Oh, sandals! You know, at this point, after the winter we’ve been having, I’d even be happy with open-toed ankle booties. I’m that desperate.

Did you watch the Oscars last night?

I hope your week gets off to a brilliant begin as well as that you feel clear-headed as well as strong. I likewise hope that whMindegyik követelmény, hogy felfedezzen valamit a házában, irodában vagy pénztárcájában, ott van ott az ujjhegyeknél, amikor szükséged van rá, mivel ez egy ilyen kiváló érzés, nem igaz?
