Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 563

Have a beautiful day!

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. Frosty pink gloss or a frosty white brow bone? (And you gotta pick one! You can’t choose “neither.”)

Take me back to 1999, why don’t you? I’m gonna have to go with the frosty pink gloss.

2. Pancakes or waffles?

Pancakes. Ideally banana, with lots of REAL maple syrup (not that fake watery stuff).

3. Walk me through how you remove your makeup (products and process)

Assuming it’s at the end of the day, at which point I’m exhausted, I strive to keep the process short and sweet.

Right now it’s just the following three steps:

  1. I massage a couple pumps of Fresh Seaberry Cleansing Oil directly on my face and work it in with my fingers (yup, even on my eyes and my lashes) until my foundation and eye makeup breaks up. Then I rise that off with warm water.
  2. Next, if I wore long-wearing eyeliner that day and there’s still some on my water or lash lines, I take a Q-tip or Shiseido Facial Cotton soaked in Clinique Take the Day Off Eye Makeup Remover to remove whatever’s left over.
  3. Then, I apply a non-drying liquid or cream cleanser (basically, anything that doesn’t foam, because bubbly cleansers dry out my skin) on my face and neck while they’re still wet and work it in with my fingers before gently removing it with a warm washcloth.

4.How do you feel about carrying a cell phone around? Is yours with you 24/7?

Mine’s with me 24/7, and sometimes I love it, and sometimes I wish I could throw the fracking thing into the ocean.

Mind you, it’s useful, obvs. I can always be reached in an emergency and make calls from wherever if the car stalls or if Tabs needs a midnight gravy run. Plus, all of the to-do lists and notes I write to keep my life in some semblance of order are on there, and that’s super helpful, buuuut tuning out is definitely tougher than it was back in the pre-phone days.

5. Your go-to lippie of the moment?

I’ve been wearing a BECCA lipstick called Yours Truly A LOT lately. It’s a smooth and creamy opaque nude.

That bittersweet feeling

It’s always bittersweet to come back from Oahu. On one hand I’m beyond happy to be sleeping in my bed again, and on the other hand I’m like, “Take me back ASAP to the land of sleeping in, shave-ice and warm water, ahhh!” Today’s my first day back from Hawaii, and first thing on the list is to give Tabs lots of TLC. He’s super clingy right now and very chatty.

I wish you could hear him meowing; it’s like a symphony of kitty hellos that’s been going on since I woke up.

I hope you’re having a nice Monday so far. I’ve missed talking to you! Tell me what you’ve been up to.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
