Monday Beauty Poll

Well, most of you (44%) found yourselves in a somewhat hesitant approval of Kelly Osborne’s purple hair and lips, with 18% in enthusiastic approval.  I’m in with you guys, for some reason it didn’t look hideous.  The rest of you disagreed, and one kind soul clicked on my joke of wanting some grape juice.  Thank you, person who took pity on me!

Today I’ve got some more celebrity looks for you to judge…

55% of you wear sunscreen on your face only on “normal” days, which probably include being at work or picking the kids up from school or whatever.  For most, it isn’t exposing your skin to lots of sun, go good for you for being in the habit.  35% apply none at all, which I think is OK as long as your sun exposure is limited, amirite?  10% of you apply it everywhere, and your skin is probably going to look the best in the next 20 years.

Today I’m curious as to what you think of the latest look sported by rockstar spawn Kelly Osborne.

My last poll about spring beauty trends had 26% of you willing to give red lips a go, however I’m guessing that probably isn’t much of a departure for most of you.  21% said sheer rose lips sounded appealing, and the cat eye came in at 19%.  15% were game for the super smoky eye, but I’m a bit timid for that one.  Also, I’m afraid of looking like a raccoon.  And not a cute one.

Today I’m curious as to your sunscreen habits.

The majority of you, 54% gave Heidi Klum two snaps up for her “makeup-free” modeling.  20% said she should have gone for the full coverage, and 25% felt she looked like she was coming down with something.  Awww, poor Heidi!  I don’t think that’s the best she’s ever looked, but major props for going that bare in front of the camera at her age.

According to Harper’s Bazaar, spring 2012 has quite the few makeup trends.

For 34% of you, it only takes 10-15 minutes to put your makeup on for a normal day out, and for 26%, it takes less than 10 and also less than 5. 5% take 15-20, and 3% take 30 minutes or more.  I would say it takes me somewhere around 15, and I attribute that mostly to the fact I have a toddler.

Now, the picture above of a makeup-less (or mighty close to) Heidi Klum has been making the internet rounds, and it seems the internet had quite a bit to say about it.  Let’s see where within the spectrum your opinion lies.

After I mentioned the lack of plus-sized Octavia Spencer (who looked absolutely stunning) in many best-dressed Oscar polls, I asked you if you feel that society as a whole is becoming more fat-phobic.  36% of you think it definitely has, 31% don’t have any hard evidence but sure think things are getting worse, and 23% say no it has not.  I personally think that people have definitely become more judgemental about other people’s weight, and my recent large weight gain (thanks, non-functioning thyroid!) may have a part to play in that mindset.

Now today I wish to know how long it takes you to apply your makeup for a normal day out.

Octavia Spencer was voted best-dressed at the Oscars with a fairly commanding 29%, given how wide the field was. Milla Jovovich and Jessica Chastain tied for second place with 19%.  I was looking at some other Oscar fashion polls, and was discouraged to see that Octavia wasn’t even a choice.  Girl killed it on the red carpet, and I’m sorry that some people think that a woman with curves isn’t fashion-worthy.

Which segues nicely into my next question…

50% of you oppose animal testing, but admit you’re a bit hazy on the details of who actually performs it.  22% say it isn’t on their radar, 14% refuse to buy from companies that do test, and 12% are OK with it.  I’m going with the majority vote on this one.

And now, dears, it is the last fashion-oriented poll we will have for a while, since awards season is over.  I’ve got lots for you to choose from for best-dressed of the night.

Aaaand it was Adele for the win with 75% of the vote!  It’s funny because her makeup looked flawless, but almost TOO flawless, if that is possible.  Kudos to her makeup artist, I suppose.

Today’s poll was inspired by commenter Babs, who left a comment on the lead in lipsticks post. Thanks, Babs!

I’m less of a person than I was a week ago (har, that’s surgical humor right there) but I’m back and hopefully better than ever.  Not having cancer=very good thing!  Now I can focus on the important things in life, like the reintroduction of cult fave Clinique’s Black Honey Almost Lipstick.

Viola Davis beat Zoe Saldana in the fab-off by an embarassingly large margin.  You go, Viola!

And you know, I had a very hard time finding someone that looked truly awesome from the Grammys last night, but here are my top two picks.
