-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I just love blue eyeshadow--no favorite palette yet

No thoughts. I know what I need to know about makeup for myself, but I am definitely learning a lot more (for the general audience) from your blogs.

I own mineral makeup but I haven't used it yet.
-What is your favorite lipstick?
Don't hate me, but I'm not into lipstick for myself. I think lipstick is good for making lips look fuller, and I'm pretty set in that area ;)

Of course. I use ELF therapeutic conditioning balm as a base, then chapstick and ELF super glossy lipshine to finish

I know a lot of people like MAC, but I'll keep you guessing...
-What do you think of Makeup?
I'm starting to really enjoy the details of makeup so I'm always open to learning more and more. I don't think people should wear it every day because I don't want girls to feel like they need it to leave the house. But I want them to know how to use it and to really take advantage of what makes it awesome!
