Today, I’m linking up with The Blended Blog for TBB Asks. The March theme is all about beauty from favorite lipstick color to that all important question – do you shave your legs every day? Plus, I’m sharing my winter beauty empties and a few favorites I want to repurchase.

1. Eyelash Curler Yes or No?

Yes for formal occasions. I usually forget about it otherwise.

2. Favorite Nail Shade?

That depends on my mood. Some favorites are: OPI Nail Lacquer You Don’t Know Jacques!butter LONDON Nail Lacquer Knees Up, and Wet n Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel Nail Color Lavender Out Loud.

3. Favorite Lipstick Shade?

I like a classic red (MAC Ruby Woo), and I like a pinky-nude (Steve Laurant Café Lip Gloss).

4. Blow Dry or Air Dry your hair?

I used to never blow dry my hair, but since switching to the Babyliss Pro nano titanium mid-size titanium hair dryer, I prefer to blow dry. If I air dry, I often braid my hair so that I have waves in the morning.

5. Artificial Nails: Yes or No?

No. Sometimes I will do stick on nails for a formal occasion, but I really don’t like the feel of fake nails.

6. Foundation: Yes or No?

Yes and no. I wear foundation (bareMinerals barePro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20) when I’m performing or meeting up with people, but I usually wear a CC cream (Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream) for everyday.

7. Hair Up or Hair Down?

Most of the time my hair is up in a bun, braid, or ponytail. I cannot think with hair in my face.

8. Bar Soap or Body Wash?

Body wash. Soap is just annoying because it slips and slides allover the place.

9. Bath or Shower?

Bath time is my time. I will take a shower if I’m in a rush, but otherwise, I prefer a hot bath with Epsom salt, possibly bubbles, and a good book. I think reading in the bath is a very divisive issue, but I have no problem keeping my books dry.

10. Favorite Body lotion?

The Honest Company Face + Body Lotion is the bomb. Other brands break me out, but I’ve had great luck with this. However, I don’t use it on my face.

11. Do you wear perfume? Is so, favorite scent?

I hardly ever wear perfume. I wasn’t allowed to growing up, and I really haven’t gotten into the habit as an adult, even though I’ve tried.

12. Do you shave your legs everyday?

Not during the winter. This is one of the only good things about cold weather. If no one is going to see my legs, then I don’t have to shave them every day. But, smooth legs feel good, so it’s more like every other day.

13. Favorite Lip Balm?

I am all about the lip balm. Favorites include: Burt’s Bees Lip Balm Ultra Conditioning with Kokum ButterEOS Organic Sweet Mint Smooth Sphere Lip Balm, and Neutrogena Hydro Boost Lip Treatment.

14. How old were you when you first started wearing make-up?

When I was little, I only wore makeup for performances, but I could wear lip balm and sometimes nail polish on a regular basis. I really didn’t start wearing makeup until I was in high school, but because school started early, and I am not a morning person, the amount of makeup I wore varied. Now, as an adult who can wear makeup whenever I want, I don’t really bother unless I have a reason to dress up.

My Winter Beauty Empties

Today, I’m linking up with The Blended Blog for TBB Asks. The March theme is all about beauty from favorite lipstick color to that all important question - do you shave your legs every day? Plus, I'm sharing my winter beauty empties and a few favorites I want to repurchase.

  1. It’s funny that now that I *can* wear makeup whenever I want, I usually don’t unless I have a reason to! A good friend of mine recommended the Mac Ruby Woo years ago and I totally forgot about it until you mentioned it- I should really check it out!

  2. I’m loving all the people who don’t shave in the winter, solidarity! I don’t either! I love seeing everyone’s favorite beauty products! And I’m with you, a good bath is relaxing and it’s me time!

  3. These were fun! I curl my eyelashes every day because my lashes are so short! My favorite thing right now is Hanalei lip treatment – I love it!

  4. Ohh I’ve heard of Butter London and I love their shades. I usually put my hair up too, but when I go out everyone likes it down. I’m so happy the guy I’m dating doesn’t care either way, it’s not like he had a say so anyways lol. I’m also a bath girl 🙂

  5. I loved this! Fun answers. Also I’ve never used an eyelash curler, but have always wanted to. Not a fan of fake nails either and always need to have the hair out of my face! Hope you’re having a great week 🙂 PS: Have you heard about the blogger giveaway (details in the Peaceful Posse group)? Would LOVE to have you join!!!

  6. I don’t do fake nails either but I did when I was younger. I regret that now, because my nails are a wreck. However, occasionally I’ll enjoy press on nails.
    I love a good eyelash curler, I’m actually in need of a new one. I’m a Burt’s Bee lover too.:)

  7. I’m not a fake nail person either – although I do like painting my nails and would find it too hard to pick a favourite polish, haha! 🙂

    Hope you are having a good week so far 🙂 I’ve lost my voice so not the best week for me, haha!

  8. Must really try that Babyliss Pro dryer:) And thanks for the vid! You had some of the stuff I wanted to try. I’ll probably skip that belif moisturizer, and will definitely try to get my hands on that IT Cosmetics brow pencil.

  9. I will have to check out some of those nail shades. I have Mac’s Ruby Woo and it’s a little too bold for me. Maybe I need to try it again though.
