Monday/Tuesday Beauty Poll

By Glinda

Wow, OK, y’all had some very opinionated views on your most un-favorite makeup color.  Good to see the heat hasn’t zapped the spirit out of anyone.  Believe me when I say I mean that in the most loving way possible.  I’m all about the love here at Manolo Beauty. 

The winner of the most-dreaded makeup color was orange/coral at 29%, the runner-up being yellow at 25%.  12% are afraid of blue, 9% of red, and 8% of green. 

Absolutely no one is afraid of gold. 

Many of you also expressed particular hatred of pink eyeshadow, and I must say, I ROCK me some pink eyeshadow.  I think it has to do mostly with your skin tone, as the paler girls seem to be the one with the pink eyeshadow beef.  Maybe I will do a how-to.

Today’s question is:

    Aaaahhh, okay, so while I picked mismatched foundation, since it will make anybody look awful, the one I see the most in the wild is wrong color eyeshadow. I will absolutely mentally re-do people’s makeup on the metro, in the office, or wherever. I think Color Me Beautiful should be required reading in adolescence.

    And respecting pink eyeshadow, the key for pale gals (like myself) is to go with a subtle, pale pink, and anchor it with gray or navy at the lash line so you don’t look like you’ve been crying. Trust!

    Visible lipliner. Biggest, dumbest mistake there is, and one which defeats the purpose of makeup entirely.

    I had to choose too-light foundation, because during the winter I go very pale, and during the summer, I gain all that colour back. I am petrified of choosing the wrong colour foundation (horrible experience in high school), so I always ask for a cosmetician’s opinion. I really don’t trust my own eye.

    What do you do when you buy a foundation in spring, and by mid-summer, it’s too light?

    My beauty blunders are probably too numerous to pick just one, but mostly boil down to “not caring about the make-up very much at the moment” issues.

    Jelly: When I got more tan than usual last summer, I bought a slightly darker tone of the same brand of foundation and mixed it (during application) with the lighter one I used in winter. Sometime in October the tan faded and I went back to the unadulterated lighter one. Experts here can now explain why this was wrong! (Also I buy drugstore brand make-up, so a 2nd bottle of foundation didn’t precisely break the bank.)

    My biggest beauty blunder was following the skinny-eyebrow trend in the 1990’s. Prior to that, I had GREAT eyebrows. Thick, but not too thick, and shapely. I plucked them into thin squiggles. I’ve since let them grow back, but they’re just not the same, and will only get worse as I get older.

    Overuse of all makeup—- I spent a portion of my twenties thinking that spackled on makeup = eternal hotness. I am glad I had a friend who wasn’t afraid to tell me the truth. I took a make up artistry class at a local cosmetology school and have been happy in my cosmetics since then.

    I totally mix the foundations to get the right color in the summer
