What are some things people have said to you when you haven't worn make-up? Most of the time, people either tell me I look tired or that I should wear no makeup more often and that I don't need it. I get mixed reactions.
Do you prefer wearing make-up? If so, why? I prefer wearing makeup for many reasons. I know I don't need makeup to look pretty- but makeup makes me feel pretty! A little winged eyeliner or red lipstick can make me feel more confident during the day. I've heard "men don't like women who wear too much makeup", but most men don't appreciate my velvet bell bottoms either and they're absolutely fabulous. It's all about what makes you feel confident.
If you could only wear one make-up product every day what would it be and why? I like wearing a little bit of mascara. I have tiny squinty eyes. I tend to laugh a lot, making them look even smaller... so I like to give them the little pop they need.
What are your favorite line of beauty products? My favorite line of beauty products is probably Urban Decay. I like their whole sparkley-grunge-rockstar vibe. Makeup should be fun, like it was when you were little stealing your mamas lipstick.
What kind of situations would you not wear makeup for? I never wear makeup to the gym or the beach. It doesn't make much sense to me to have anything on your face when you plan on sweating. A lot of the girls I see at the gym who do have makeup on are more busy taking selfies than actually working out. I'm not about that.
