Hosted by Mamarazzi, Queso and Crazymama.
This week Mamarazzi is asking the questions and she is asking about your fave, must have make-up items, personal style and your beauty routine.
{1} What is your "can't go without it" beauty product/cosmetic?
{2} Do you apply make-up before or after doing your hair?
{3} How would you describe your personal style?
{4} How long does it take you to get ready each day?
{5} What is your one pamper, just for you, beauty splurge?
{1} What is your "can't go without it" beauty product/cosmetic?
This is a tough question only because I use next to no beauty products/cosmetics most of the time. Since I rarely wear make-up, I don't even use a facial cleanser; I wash my face with plain water. I exfoliate with coffee grounds. I always try to remember to moisturize, and I do almost always carry my lip gloss on me, even if I don't wear it. Cover Girl Wine Shine. And I couldn't do my hair for work without gel and hairspray.
{2} Do you apply make-up before or after doing your hair?
Like I said, I rarely wear make-up. I'm a natural kinda girl, and MacGyver has a pre-existing dislike for high maintnance eye liner addicts. However, if on occassions when I do wear make-up - clubbing, fancy dates, that sort of thing - I put my make-up on last - usually in the car on the way to wherever we're going (while MacGyver drives).
{3} How would you describe your personal style?
 I have more than one; I always have. When I younger, I looked at getting dressed more like costuming (my Halloween obsession being no surprise). It's not to quite that extent these days, but given the fact that the Marine Corps dictates what I will wear 5 or more days a week, I try to make the most of my personal style when I get the chance.
I wear a lot of bohemian style outfits - browns, greens, deep reds, and paisley; flowey dressed and tops, etc. I also like a lot of current styles, sweater dresses, boots, scarves, etc. I still enjoy my college style - jeans, little tees that amuse me, and my Heelys, sometimes a little punk, rarely a bit country.
And, of course I have my professional style. I really like fitted suits/ suit dresses with splashes of color, like a red blouse underneath. I'd have to say that my professional style is closer to "cute" and "flattering" than professional.
{4} How long does it take you to get ready each day?
In the morning, I get up an hour before I leave the house, but I'd say that only a max of 20 minutes of that is actually me getting myself ready.
When I get home, if I'm able to disentangle myself from Flintstone, it takes me 5 - 10 minutes to go from work to home (change, take my hair down, etc.).
{5} What is your one pamper, just for you, beauty splurge?
They are few and far between. I love pedicures, but only get one or two a year. Hell, at this point even a bath is a big splurge, esp if it's by myself (because the tub in our room is a big two person jacuzzi, it's almost a waste to take a bath alone). Hmmmm. . . Now I really want to just take a bath and read. . .

I wear make up just to protect others' eyes from my face without it. :)

I can totally see why you mix it up with your personal style.

i do my make-up in the car too. it's easier though if i'm the one driving. i swear my hubs takes turns extra fast when i'm applying eyeliner.
