I usually wear Nars black eyeliner & some kind of dark red-brown or burgundy lipstick (tho' today it's pink to match my skirt & also my hair).
03. How long does it take you to get ready?
30 minutes most workdays. I hate to get up early, so I've streamlined my process. I also tend to lay out, or at least plan, my day's wardrobe the night before.
04. Do you put on a lot of lipgloss?
Eww, no. I hate lipgloss. Feels icky. I'm a matte lippie gal.
05. Can you apply mascara without opening your mouth?
Dunno, I don't wear mascara very often. My lashes are naturally long.
06. Do you wear a lot of eyeliner?
Define "a lot." I do loves me some eyeliner.
07. Do you like to wear nail polish?
Yes, & toenail polish in summer. But I'm too sloppy to do it myself anymore.

09. Do you like manicures?
Yes, LOVE them, but see above re: lazy.

11. Do you have a usual nail salon you go to?
No. See above.
12. Do you get your eyebrows done?
Ye gods yes. So glad a friend mentioned that this was an option for me because my brows are naturally HUGE yet I always sucked at trying to shape them myself.

I only get my hair cut about once a year, last time (pre-chemo) was at a salon in Campbell by a guy I went to high school with.
14. Do you dye your hair?
Yes. Hasn't been its natural color since I was 14.

Black as my soul.

Not huge ones, but my sunglasses are somewhat large.

There have been times in my life when I did. But not right now.
29. What's your favorite store?
Hard to choose just one. But Amazon is probably my most frequently shopped place.

I watch them a little bit. It's entertaining. Sometimes a trend will come along that coincides nicely with what looks good on me. Then I'll snap the stuff up before it goes away again.
