Sunday Social (#9)

Every Sunday, I do a link up with A Complete Waste of Makeup called Sunday Social.  It’s super fun and gets us all SOCIAL!  Feel free to join in on the fun…

Sunday Social

How old were you when you started wearing makeup?  I was in 8th grade.  I had officially made the switch from tomboy to girlier girl at that moment.  My friends showed me how to wear make-up and I traded in my Mossimo shirts with baggy jeans look for cute tops and skirts.  I even started bringing makeup to school to freshen up after gym class.

What are your top 3 favorite beauty products?  I have had my struggles with problematic skin.  I used to get pimples ALL the time!  Different regimens have worked in the past, but this past April I was struggling with the worst skin of my life.  I just could not catch a break (to me anyway, since everything is way more dramatic to yourself than to anyone else).  I started using a product called Unblemish and boy did it change my life! I am not a consultant for Rodan + Fields, but I sure do love mine!  This product line has me clear, and beautiful skin is number 1 in product priority for me so Unblemish would be my top.  The other two favorites would be mascara and eye liner.  I am not partial to any particular brands with these two either, but I do go with a basic black for both.

What is one makeup product you don’t leave home without?  Does EOS chap stick count?  I take that with me everywhere!  I love my EOS so much that I even bought a car to match.  Okay, not really, but I do own a Volkswagen EOS too.  And I am intrigued (as nerdy as it sounds) that they have the same name.

What is your daily beauty routine?  I follow the Unblemish regimen like I mentioned above, which consists of facewash, toner, dual-action intensive cream, and moisturizer with sunscreen.  I do that and then put on makeup.  The makeup part takes me like 5 mins max… mineral foundation, bronzer as blush, eye liner, eyeshadow if I am feeling it, and most certainly mascara.

What is your favorite hair/makeup product you’ve discovered in the last year?  Dior Skinflash.  It’s a radiance booster pen is what the description says, but I LOVE this stuff for under my eyes.  I have been out for weeks now, but once I get my butt to a mall I will purchase this again.  I tried to buy a cheap version and it was toss-worthy.  The garbage can liked it more than I did.
