Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 661


1. Sweet or sour?

Sweet!

2. Ponytail or braid?

Right now, a braid, ideally low and loose.

On that note, I’ve officially reached a tipping point with my hair.

It. Is. Driving. Me. Crazy.

Whenever I wear a ponytail, I get a headache, unless I wear it at a very specific angle, which is more work than I want to do… My hair is REALLY stressing me out.

3. What color are your eyes?

Dark chocolate brown with a faint dark blue navy ring around the iris (but you gotta look super close to see it).

4. How good are you about purging your makeup collection?

Hmm… Well, not super good, but I’m getting better at it, slowly but surely. I used to keep everything (AND I MEAN EVERYTHING) indefinitely, even expired items for nostalgia, but all I want to keep now are things that haven’t expired and that I wear all the time… Got no room in my life for ongoing nonsense!

5. Which way do you part your hair?

I don’t know anymore! I was parting it on the left for a while, because that seemed to be the way the cray-cray gray hairs instinctively wanted to go, but I’ve come to realize that my hair is toying with my mind. It’s a no-win situation! Lately, I’ve been parting it to the right, but that doesn’t seem to be helping either.

So, yeah, I have no idea at this point, HAHAHA!

6. Highlights or lowlights?

Neither?!

7. Are you a nail biter?

Nah, that was never really one of my things.

8. Have you ever felt self-conscious about your smile?

Girl, yes! 😬 All throughout my tweens and teenss. I wore braces for many, many years and was never completely comfortable with the metal flash in pics. I would try to smile as naturally as I could with a closed mouth. 🙂

Actually, I’m still self-conscious about my smile, to be honest, because it seems to exaggerate the hooded-ness of my eyes in pics (or at least I think it does).

Also, this might be in my head, but I swear I look considerably older when I smile. I know that getting older is a mandatory ride, and you gotta just come to terms with it at a point, so I try to maintain a good attitude and do it gracefully, but I’ve been kinda struggling with it lately… Hopefully, this too shall pass.

9. Something fun you did over the weekend?

Oh! — Connor and I did a little bit of gardening. It was warm out here, up into the 70s, so we hung out on the deck and repotted some plants.
