I love all things makeup and hair care, so when this month’s topic on The Blended Blog’s link up was beauty, I was so excited to participate.
1. Eyelash Curler: Yes or No?
I don’t use an eyelash curler on a daily basis, but I do own one and will use like once a month! Haha
2. Favorite Nail Shade?
I love Watermelon by Essie.
3. Favorite Lipstick Shade?
I’ve used my Mac Lipstick in the shade ‘Faux’ every day for years. It’s a good go-to color because it works with everything you wear. When I want to wear something with a little more color, I wear this Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment in the color ‘Rose.’ It also has SPF 15 in it, which is an added bonus!
4. Blow Dry or Air Dry?
I normally blow dry my hair, but if I’m not in a hurry to be somewhere I’ll let it air dry.
5. Artificial nails: Yes or No?
When I get my nails done, I get NexGen, which is when you dip your fingers in the powder to create an artificial nail. I used to get gel nails all the time, but then I got worried my hands were going to get wrinkly from the UV lights. Haha!
6. Foundation: Yes or No?
Yes! I currently wear Beauty Counter’s Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation in the shade ‘Linen’. It matches my skin perfectly and doesn’t feel heavy at all. All of Beauty Counters products are also free of most of the harmful chemicals that are found in a most other makeup products!
7. Hair Up or Hair Down?
I normally wear it down the first couple of days while it’s clean and then by day three it goes up!
8. Bar Soap or Body Wash?
Definitely body wash! Bar soaps always dry out my skin!
9. Bath or Shower?
This is a tough one, but I absolutely baths! I use these bath salts and they’re amazing!
10. Favorite Body Lotion?
I have so many lotions because I hate the feeling of dry skin. Some of my favorites are this one (I keep a big bottle of this under my bathroom counter), this one (I use the ‘Lavender‘ scent every night before I go to bed and the ‘Aloe Mint‘ scent after I’ve been in the sun), and this one (I originally bought this lotion after getting a spray tan because it’s supposed to help extend the life of your tan.) All of these lotions are free from most chemicals that are found in most personal care products.
11. Do you wear perfume? If so, favorite scent?
Yes! I’ve used Kate Spade’s ‘Live Colorfully’ perfume for like 3 years. I should probably try something new, but I just love it so much! It’s the perfect scent for summer time! It also comes in this roll-on version, which I keep in my purse.
11. Do you shave your legs everyday?
Haha no way!
12. Favorite lip balm?
Burts Bees in the shade pomegranate! I apply this at least 10 times a day! Haha!
13. How old were you when you first started wearing make-up?
Hm…. maybe 8th grade? It probably looked terrible though. Wayyy to much eyeliner.
Have a great day!
Love, Amy Cotton
