Question of the Week: What’s your current favorite top coat and how long have you been using it for your manicures?

EauMG’s Answer: For the past few years, I’ve been using Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat. It’s cheap and works well. I like that it’s glossy and quick drying. I prefer it over Seche Vite (which I found would “shrink” my polishes)

EauMG’s Favorite Makeup & Beauty Products of 2014

Last year I posted my first every “Favorite of the Year” makeup and beauty product round-up (thanks The Non-Blonde for inspiring me). Now that 2014 is over, it’s time for me to share my favorite beauty products of the year.

 I’m a perfume blogger that is overwhelmed by new perfume launches; I can’t keep up with makeup launches too. This post isn’t about “Best New Products of 2014″. It’s a post about “new to me” products of 2014 that I fell in love with (and in a few cases, fell back in love… Continue reading | 11 Comments

EauMG’s November 2014 Empties

November Empties

Question of the Week: What’s your go-to party makeup look? Smoky eyes? Cat-eye liner? Bright lips?

EauMG’s Answer: Wow, I’m so flattered that you think I party :) Honestly, it really depends on the occasion and the time of year. This time of the year, I’m most likely going to do minimal eye makeup and really dark lips. Other times of the year, I may do a matte red lipstick or bright coral with cat-eye liner. I

Question of the Week: Do you use face primer? If so, what are some of your favorites?

EauMG’s Answer: Now that I use BB creams and cushion compacts, I use face primer a lot less than I used to. But, I do use it when I wear foundation. My favorite primer for my dry skin is Reviva Labs Makeup Primer (review here). It works well and the price is great. I also like… Continue reading | 4 Comments
