The Lipstick League - week of 8.4.14


Lipstick League Question of the Week

 What is the one step in your daily makeup routine that you dislike the most? What is the one step you love the most? 

G's answer: The step I dislike the most is concealing (ugh). The step I love the most seems to change quite often. A few months ago I was really into blush, but right now I'm loving applying my mascara. Lately I've been layering one coat of L'Oreal Miss Manga over one coat of L'Oreal Butterfly Mascara (I got this tip from one of you!) and it's a lovely combo. I feel such a sense of satisfaction when my mascara is just right.

  1. Ahaha! I'm the opposite! I love concealing! It makes my panda eyes go away! :D The step I hate seems to vary lol

  2. I don't hate any step of applying makeup- if I hated it I wouldn't be bothering with it at all, LOL. However, what I do hate is removing it at all at the end of the day!

  3. The step I hate is actually washing it all off at night. I just don't want to be bothered!!

  4. Doing my brows! It's the last thing I do and probably takes the longest.

  5. Washing it all off -- especially eye makeup -- is probably my least favorite. I love applying lipstick and balm the most. Close second would be applying nail polish. I love to apply it, but removing glitter polishes is a pain in the butt. The tin foil method has made that a lot less annoying, fortunately.

  6. Brows and mascara, the most time consuming things for me and ones I'm most likely to smudge when in a hurry, which naturally takes more time to fix and re-do. Sigh.

  7. Washing it off is definitely my least favorite. I think applying eyeshadow is my favorite..or nail polish. Does that count? Ha

  8. omg! Thank you for the shout out! It's an honor to be in the Lipstick League of the week post! xoxo
