The Lipstick League – Week of 6.10.14

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 14 - 2014

Question of the Week: When applying your makeup, do you stand or sit? Where do you apply it? In your bedroom, bathroom or…?

lipstickleague - final

Answer: I hover between the bedroom and the hallway to apply my makeup.  My Ikea Alex is just inside the bedroom door but there’s no mirror nearby.  So I lean into the bedroom to grab what I need and use the mirror on the wall in the hall to apply it.  It’s a bad, bad situation for a beauty blogger.  When I’m rich, I’m gonna have a full-sized vanity area with some decent lighting.  None of this energy-saving-takes-until-you’re-50-to-illuminate-the-bulb crap.
