How long does it take for you to get ready in the morning? I work in a gym...so like 20 minutes? I take a shower after work. lol


What is your favorite brand of make-up? Different products=different brands


How do you typically wear your hair? in a high bun. When I want to look good, I'll blow it dry with a round brush


What item of make-up can you not the leave the house without putting on? blush and mascara


Do you color (dye, highlight, etc.) your hair?  If so, what color? What color are you naturally? Yes, I dye it just a couple shades darker than my natural color. Nothing crazy. I've done purple in the past, blonde highlights, black, but now I'll stick to more natural things :)


Do you get manicures/pedicures or do your own nails? It depends. Nails I usually do my own, but occaisonally will get gels or acrylics or something. I get a pedi once a month. I get ingrown toenails, so the pedis always cut them out and it feels so much better when they do it. 


What is your best feature? Eyes


What is your favorite perfume? Benefit's "Bespot"


What is your best skin care tip/secret? Moisturizing has changed my life. lol. And sunscreen everyday!

How long does it take for you to get ready in the morning? If we count the shower, blow drying the hair, getting dressed and makeup I'd say and hour. 


What is your favorite brand of make-up? For my face, Laura Mercier, for my eyes, Maybelline.


How do you typically wear your hair? I wear it down. I don't like my profile so I avoid wearing it up at all costs.


What item of make-up can you not the leave the house without putting on? Foundation. I hate my skin :(


Do you color (dye, highlight, etc.) your hair?  If so, what color? What color are you naturally? I get blond highlights, but they are pretty thick so it looks like all over blond. My natural color is auburn.


Do you get manicures/pedicures or do your own nails? I used to have acrylics, but I gave those up to save some money. I occasionally will get a professional mani or pedi, but for the most part I do it myself. 


What is your best feature? My hair. Even though I get it highlighted it is really healthy and naturally straight. Everyone thinks I straighten it everyday, but I don't! 


What is your favorite perfume? Step into sexy (avon Product). 


What is your best skin care tip/secret? Use SPF on your face, neck and hands!
