Style/Beauty Quiz

Tuesday, 25 January 2011
My FB and high school friend Keely had 2 extra free subscriptions to Better Homes and Gardens and I was able to secure one. Woo-hoo!

In the magazine is a Style and Beauty article that asks stars/notables certain questions about beauty habits. In January 2011, business woman and makeup artist Leslie Blodgett gave her answers and inspired me to try out the questions as well.

HOW TO SAVE A BAD HAIR DAY? Plug in the hot rollers. I love the curls you get without much effort. It takes practice to learn how to set a head of hair but once you do, the skill is invaluable.

WORTH THE SPLURGE? GHD flat iron. (Thanks to Kingsley for the gift.) When I use my straightener the way it is supposed to be used (clean hair, good products, small pieces) it works like a charm.

CHEAP, BUT WORTH A MILLION? Neutrogena Moisture Shine lip gloss. You can sometimes find it 50% off at CVS. Score!

I WISH SOMEONE HAD TOLD ME don't go to the tanning bed! While the bronze look is lovely at a young age, it will cause wrinkles later in life. Tanning bed = not always classy.

I'M SO GLAD SOMEONE TOLD ME to stop occasionally smoking. I would pick up a cigarette every now and then when I lived in London and all my flat mates smoked. It is absolutely horrid for wrinkles and bad for your lungs.

BEAUTY PET PEEVE? When girls sleep in full makeup. That isn't great for skin, in my opinion. I also don't like to see unkempt eyebrows.

FAVORITE BEAUTY TOOL? Aveda Brilliance Damage Control spray. It smells amazing and just makes life better.

BEST BYGONE BEAUTY? Baby powder. Use it in the summer for sweaty feet. Use it in the winter for dark roots (but not too much).

I WON'T LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT a hat if I'm having a bad hair day or a day I'd rather not fix my hair.

I WISH SOMEONE WOULD INVENT permanent air brush foundation. Smooth, full coverage makeup all the time.

AGING IS parallel to wisdom and confidence.

LIPSTICK OR GLOSS? Lipstick. I love full, striking colors on lips.

I FEEL CONFIDENT when I am happy.
