Hi everyone and happy weekend! I hope everyone is having a fabulous day so far. I got nominated for my third Liebster Award by the darling Camille over at mrsshern a couple of days ago and am so totally flattered! Her blog is a real gem so make sure you check it out. It’s always so much fun to participate in these blogging awards and get new people involved! Of course with all of these awards comes a set of rules for those who have been nominated to follow. Read the rules over and then see how I answered the questions that Camille asked to her nominees:
• Tag the person who nominated you and thank them.
• Answer the 10 questions you are given.
• Nominate 10 new bloggers and tag them.
• Give them 10 new questions to answer.
• Notify your nominees.
Q & A:
Describe your blogging style in best FIVE words?
Quirky, witty, sharp, insightful, and interesting (I hope!).
What is the best ONE beauty product you can’t live without? Why?
NYX’s Pure Red matte lipstick because it’s the perfect shade of red, the best matte lipstick I’ve ever used, and it completes the Lil Red look.
If you are to do a makeup look for ONE person for the rest of your life, who would it be and why?
Uhhhh….I don’t really know how to answer that question because I suck at doing makeup for other people. Haha, I guess doing stage makeup would be fun. I used to be really in to acting and I envied everyone who could do their makeup on their own.
What is the ONE best advice you would give your younger self when it comes to beauty? Why?
Let’s see…Probably to learn how to dye my hair at home because it would save you a fortune! The money I’ve saved from dying my hair with boxed color is insane.
If you are not a blogger, what would you be doing right now?
Working a shitty retail job. Blogging has given me an awesome way to earn some extra money while I’m in school full time at Tri-C.
What is ONE funniest beauty horror story you had?
Oh gosh, I don’t know. I don’t think I’ve ever had a real “horror” story when it comes to my makeup. However, last time I got my hair cut my amazing stylist gave me this awesome pompadour with twisted braids on both sides of my head. I was so happy with how it turned out but as soon as my boyfriend and I got home, I changed shirts from the cute one that I was wearing to a comfy t-shirt for lounging. By the time the t-shirt was on, my perfectly styled tower of hair had fallen and all that was left was a crunchy and hair sprayed mess. I was SO so pissed because it was one of those things that I should have seen coming a mile away but naturally I disregarded it!
What is ONE product that you keep inside your every day makeup bag that you don’t really use at all?
Hmmm…I don’t really have anything in my makeup collection that I don’t use. I hate clutter, so I try to be good about throwing away old makeup products or giving the things that I don’t want to my sister.
What is the first thing you do in the morning as soon as you wake up?
I hate saying this…But I check my phone! It’s like the millennials version of reading the newspaper and I hate myself for it!
What is ONE beauty routine you can’t live without?
Washing my face with a really good cleanser. I can’t stand the feeling of my skin being dull or dirty so skin care is a must for me.
What is your main goal as a blogger?
To make a living out of it! I’m so passionate about lifewithlilred and I’m working very hard every day to make it a success.
