The biggest virtual hug to Claudia of New Life Fresh You for this Beauty Tag. Her latest post on Nude Shoes are no longer in Fashion is a must read.
Here are the answers to the questions:
Do you remember your first makeup item?
Yes, I had a Hello Kitty lip gloss that smelled like bubble gum. I thought I was super cool 4th grader with Studio 54 shiny lips. 🤣
Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
I don’t wear mascara as I have lash extensions However, I used to use Lancome mascara for years.
What kind of coverage do you prefer from a foundation?
I am really loving Rhianna’s Fenty Beauty foundation as it is the only foundation that color matched me. I like my foundation light and effortlessly natural.
Favorite high-end brand?
Givenchy powder! The packaging is gorgeous and the loose powder makes my skin luminous. I am also addicted to the Yves Saint Laurent nude lipsticks. I never leave home without one.
What cosmetics brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
Huda Beauty! I follow her on Instagram. I just have not gotten around to buying her products yet. They sell out like hot bread at Sephora stores in New York.
Favorite drugstore brand?
L’Oreal, the masks are extraordinary.
Do you wear false lashes?
Yes, I wear false extended lashes. I have them redone every two weeks. I always disliked the raccoon eyes after wearing mascara the previous day. Even if I removed it completely I would still wake up looking crazy.

Yves Saint Laurent nude lipstick

Aquaphor lip balm, I dislike a chapped dry pout.
