The Lipstick League – week of 8.3.15

Question of the Week: Name the ONE blush you find yourself reaching for the most right now.

EauMG’s Answer: I have a Kryolan Matte Blush Palette. There’s a shade in the palette that I can’t get enough of. It’s a matte shade that is like a matte pastel lavender. It’s amazing. And now I’m on the hunt for more purple and pink/lavender blushes.

The Lipstick League – week of 8.4.14

Question of the Week: What is the one step in your daily makeup routine that you dislike the most? What is the one step you love the most?

EauMG’s Answer: I absolutely hate shaving. I can’t stand it. I’ve went without doing it but that was irritating as well. Anyway, I don’t think that is technically my “makeup routine”. I love brows but they are my least favorite to maintain – shaping, filling, setting, etc. My

She often chose feminist acting roles (after a few budget “bad girl” roles) and in the early 50’s she was the first woman to direct a film-noir. She was also a writer and producer. My best guess is that this is a pic of Ida from the 1930’s. She spent most of the 1930’s blonde but this photo has been colored and I think they did her hair in her natural brown… Continue reading | 6 Comments
