Monday Beauty Poll

By Glinda

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.

    After I acknowledged turning 30 (so, 3 months after my 30th birthday) I started really focusing on wearing at least lipstick or deeply tinted gloss every day. I am so impressed with women who have a real makeup routine and stick to it. But I’m also glad I don’t worry too much about accidentally going out barefaced.

    I become accustomed to seeing my friends, coworkers, and acquaintances look a certain way. When non-makeup-wearers wear makeup, or vice-versa, it’s a little shocking. They don’t look any worse; just sort of weird. I’m sure if they kept the change up consistently, though, I’d get over it. :)

    Five minutes tops on “normal” days. Add in the no-care hair and I can be through the bed-shower-dressed-ready to go in about 30 minutes. I’d rather sleep longer than get up and fuss.

    From Start to finish- probably 20 minutes, but that is because I like to give my moisturizer, eye cream and lip balm at least 10-15 minutes to absorb before I start. After that, I can do the “cosmetic” side in about 5-10 minutes. I have found that letting everything “soak in” before I start with the colored stuff gives me a more moisturized face and a smoother finish. It may just be a psychological thing, but hey, isn’t makeup all about looking and feeling our best….
