TBB ASKS ~ BEAUTY EDITION LINK UP

Hello my beauties and Welcome to another edition of TBB ASKS. This fun link-up gets more popular every month and this month is a girly girl’s dream: All Things Beauty. A couple years ago I told you all about my Hair and Make-Up Revelations HERE and I must admit, I am a stickler to my make-up routine, I rarely try new shades and when I do, I end up going back to my tried and trues. The only bummer is when a manufacturer stops making a beloved product (yeah I'm talking to you Max Factor of 1992). But let's get to it!

1. Eyelash Curler Yes or No? Always, sometimes even when I don’t put on other makeup, I curl my eyelashes and put on a lil mascara and I feel better instantly!


2. Favorite Nail Shade? It will forever be OPI’s “I’m Not Really a Waitress Red."
BUY Nail Polish HERE

3. Favorite Lipstick Shade? BRAVE from MAC, Before I found this shade, I did post on my 5 Favorite Lip Products. Brave is the perfect everyday shade.
BUY BRAVE HERE

4. Blow Dry or Air Dry your hair? I air dry when time permits and I never ever blow dry all the way.


5. Artificial Nails: Yes or No? Yes, However, there is a twist; I do them myself. Read my post on How to Do Your Own Artificial Nails HERE

6. Foundation: Yes or No? Yes, but I mix two kinds for the perfect shade, one high end and one drug store. I love the Estee Lauder Double Wear light from Sephora or Macy's in Intensities 3.0 or 4.0 and then I mix with an equal amount of Cover Girl Smoothers Shade 750: Creamy Beige.



BUY This Foundation HERE 

BUY This One HERE

7. Hair Up or Hair Down? I’d say 70% up and 30% down as of late. It’ll be up waaay more up in the Summer.


8. Bar Soap or Body Wash? Both, but I swear by Jergen’s Bars for washing up but then I follow it with a nice body wash. Currently loving The Body Shop's Japanese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel.
BUY Shower Gel HERE

9. Bath or Shower? Shower, night before. I enjoy an occasional soak but don’t tend to take them. Our master bath doesn't have a tub and the new shower has me so mesmerized, I never want to get out of it, lol.


10. Favorite Body lotion? Jergen’s Original or Bath and Body Magic is in The Air.


11. Do you wear perfume? If so, favorite scent? Yep, 3 favorites are Chanel No.5, Light Blue by Dolce and Gabana and Jo Malone (Mimosa & Cardamom).
BUY Chanel No5 HERE // Light Blue HERE //
 Jo Malone HERE


12. Do you shave your legs every day? In the summer, yes..everyday, in the Winter, every other day.


13. Favorite Lip Balm? Tie:Daytime it is EOS Lip Balm, Sweet Mint (Buy HERE) and at night it’s Carmex (Been using it for 30 years)


14. How old were you when you first started wearing make-up? In 8th grade, I was allowed a little eye make-up. As a freshman, I could go full face, foundation and everything and it felt so good!


xoxo

  6. Love your halter dress and TBB asks is such a fun read! I am the opposite of percentage of hair up or down. Mine seems to turn itself into a bun a lot of times! Lol 😂 And wow, make up in 8th grade!! That's cool. I didn't get to wear make up until I was in my 20s and that was just mascara! 😱 I hope you had a great weekend. Happy Monday!

  7. Andrea... I am so excited about this link up! Great questions. Can't wait to read what everybody uses. I have a feeling I'm going to be doing a lot of online shopping!!

  8. I love that lipstick color and I need to pick it up the next time I'm at the mall! It looks like a really pretty every day color. And I love your shower! We have a big shower so like you, I love taking showers!! I told Dustin that in our next house we build, we have to make sure our shower is huge because I can never go back to a regular bath/shower combo haha!

  15. Oh wow, I love that nail polish color! I wear my hair up a lot because it's thick and frizzy, so it gets hot!!

  17. My master bathroom doesn't have a bathtub either.

  18. This is such fun and always such great questions. I so wish we had not put a tub in our MB, we put a spa tub and I've been in it once. I would use a regular tub so much more but it is here and that is that! I do love MAC lipstick if I'm not wearing the long lasting kind. Love all your cute pics! Happy week!

  19. I am with you on the hair in the summer. That shower is gorgeous, of course you never want to leave!

  20. I'm really not a waitress is my favorite winter color....I think I've been using it since like 2000!

  23. Such a fun post! I didn't really start wearing makeup until about 9th grade either and I've never looked back haha. And your shower looks amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I still say I want the job of naming OPI's polish :)
    I still love a good bar soap myself but its hard to find!!!! It took me forever to find a bar of Ivory soap!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've gotten that shade of red before at the nail salon and I love it! I just tried artificial nails myself. I enjoyed your tutorial for the next time I do them! Your shower is swoon worthy! Loved reading all of your answers. This is so fun. Thanks for the link up!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Love this!!! I had artificial nails for years but eventually stopped. I also do the same thing in terms of blow drying my hair. I have very thick hair and I really don't want to spend a million years drying it haha. That lipstick is so pretty too and I love your bathroom!! Thank you for sharing and I hope that you have a wonderful day! :-)

  27. I wish I could wear those pretty MAC pinks - but they just too light on my skin tone. Your hair looks cute styled both ways!

  28. I started wearing makeup in the 8th grade too. Pretty sure it looked terrible though haha!! Love that lipstick shade. So pretty!! Have a wonderful Monday!

  29. I didn't participate this month since I'm not much of beauty product kind of gal but I do have a signature scent; my husband fell in love with Sunflowers back when we were in high school and I'm not "allowed" ;) to change it. I tried once or twice but his misses "my" scent too much.

    ReplyDelete
  30. You are so gorgeous in that flowered dress! I like that you combine the high end and drug store foundation for the perfect shade! Thank you for inviting me to link up!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Bwahaha! I snorted Diet Coke at that shout out to Max Factor 1992!! Shame on you, Max!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Gah you're so beautiful! I love that lip color and the name of the polish is fabulous! That dress is perfection on you too. Too much pretty - OVERLOAD! xoxoxo

    ReplyDelete
  33. Chanel No 5 is one of my favorites too...such a classic. I'm clicking over to read your previous make up posts. I'm sure I'll learn something new to try! Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Light Blue is one of my all time favorites too. If my shower looked like yours I don't think I would want to get out either! I also agree with you on Mac, I have tried that shade, but I love heir lipsticks!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yes to all the eyelash curling! I never miss a day!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love that you mix a high end and drug store foundation every day, that's such a smart move! I don't go for much high end makeup but Brave does look like a great color!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Loved this, Andrea! Like you I use a high-end foundation which I mix with a low end one! And you shower LOOKS AMAZING! I would never want to get out either!
    Happy Monday, babe!

  39. I love Mac's lipsticks, so I pinned that image of that everyday shade! I may try it out! I love that you mix two foundations together. Sounds like something I would do. :)

  41. I'm a loyal Carmex user at night too! I just love it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love that nail color! You look so good with your hair down. I feel like my hair is so thin and can leave it down for a bit but throw it up by mid-morning, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love Chanel No. 5!! My Mom wore it for years and whenever I smell it, I just think of her.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love your shower. So pretty. I used that same lip color on my wedding day. Now I only wear it on date nights. Love that color. The nail polish is super pretty!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I adore the floral dress you're wearing in the first photo! I'm with ya on sticking with tried and trues unless they sadly discontinue it. I never knew you did your own nails...what a money saver! The color of your favorite Mac lipstick is calling my name! xoxo Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  46. We are in the same boat on the eyelash curler- mascara is one thing I always put on! I love that color Brave- such a nice neutral. Also, I want to come visit your shower, HAHAHA- it's so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  47. OPI’s I’m Not Really a Waitress is such a beautiful color!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love your beauty addition, great tips. I thought I was the only one that combined products. Thank you for sharing your awesome blog each week on OMHG Wonderful Wednesday/Linky
    Enjoy your week!

  49. How is it that there are still so many things I don't know about you. Loved reading this!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I knew you would have so many great beauty products, beautiful lady. Going to check some of these out!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I also always use Brave! Fantastic color!

  52. Love the nail varnish colour! And your shower is so luxurious – brilliant that there is a seat if you need it!
    I hope you have a fabulous week, Andrea <3

  53. I have and use Mac Brave. Most of their neutrals wash me out since I am so light complected, but Brave has the perfect amount of pink in it. I own over 29 Mac lipsticks.... I guess you could call me 'obsessed' if you want to. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  54. As always, these are so fun to read. I can honestly say I'm fully interested in each question. lol. I laughed about your discontinued makeup. It truly is hard to grow to love another favorite and I'm not in the habit to experiment with make up anyway. I also laughed about you and your new shower. I'm a shower gal as well. And can I say that I'm super impressed that you do your own nails??? When I come we are having a salon party. lol! :)

  55. Thanks for sharing Andrea, I think I've got that lipstick from Mac, or very similar and love it. Jacqui

  58. I have shower-envy! Our master shower isn't working right now (we still have two others) and I CANNOT WAIT til Brent gets time to re-do it!
    Love that lip colour, so pretty!
    I'm also super impressed you do your own nails - is there anything you can't do?

    ReplyDelete
  59. The beauty posts are always fun! I don't suppose your mom (who is my age) would share her beauty tips? Your master bath shower is fab...I can see why you love it. Your hair always looks great...you always look great! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  60. I'm really hoping my hair is long enough by summer to do a bit of a messy bun! Wearing it down all the time is such a drag. And I'm so impressed that you curl your lashes everyday. Do you have a secret for making them stay curled?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Gah! I forgot about chanel!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Oh don't you just love the names of the O.P.I. nail colors!? :) Light Blue is such a great fragrance. And your shower is gorgeous!!
