Sunday Social! Yes, I know it's Monday... don't judge!

Hi y'all! I've had two pretty grueling weeks at work the past two weeks so let me just start with a request...

Dear Work Week, 

Be good to me. I'm a good worker and I've been really pushed to the limit these past two weeks. Be gentle this week. I don't know if my brain can handle another stressful, grueling week. 

Thanks, 
Regina

In regards to work this week, I'm going to include this in my signature for my work emails because seriously, my brain is almost fried at this point. 



Okay, now that that is out of the way let's get down to the fun stuff. Forever ago I used to participate occasionally in my friend Ashley's Sunday Social. I haven't in forever but it's Monday, it's time for some fun girl talk on this blog, let's do it. And yes, I know I'm doing Sunday Social on a Monday but hey, there's no room for judgement on this blog. So here we go!


How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
There was never a time where my parents were like, here, let's get you some makeup because you're old enough to wear it. My step-mom did not want me wearing makeup. One time when I was in junior high or early high school, my Granny bought me tinted chapstick and my step-mom made me throw it out because I was too young to wear makeup. By my junior year of high school, pretty much every other girl was wearing makeup but me. I had some makeup saved up from somewhere and I would take it to my grandparents in the morning, put a little makeup on, and go to school. Finally Granny pulled me to the side and said she knew what I was doing and that I probably shouldn't since my step-mom didn't like me wearing makeup. I was upset, but I obeyed. Then the summer between my junior and senior year my uncle was getting married and I wanted to wear makeup. So I bought some and started wearing it. It's a big deal because I have blond eyelashes so to go from blond eyelashes to black eyelashes with mascara is a pretty noticeable change. But no one said much of anything. No one said "you look great" but no one said "go wash your face" either. So I just kept it up. 

My basketball picture my junior year. See? No makeup at all. 

My senior year at basketball homecoming with makeup. I look like a totally different person. 

What are your top 3 favorite beauty products?

My Naked 2 palette, Maybelline full-n-soft waterproof mascara, and chapstick. 

What is one makeup product you don't leave home without?
That's easy, mascara. I am NEVER without mascara. Even if I take a shower at night and some of my mascara comes off I will reapply my mascara before going to bed. Seriously. Never, ever, ever without it. And I always buy an extra as soon as I empty a tube because I don't ever want to lose it or run out and not have an extra. 

What is your daily beauty routine?
I don't go that crazy with makeup. On a regular day I just wear mascara, sometimes some eyeliner, and moisturizer. If I'm going to put on more makeup I go with foundation, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, bronzer and blush. And always chapstick or some kind of lipstick. I'm also a regular face-washer. Whether I wear makeup that day or not, I always wash my face at night. Always. 

What is your favorite hair/makeup product that you've discovered in the last year?
This was a tough one because after reading Ashley's post I wanted to say my hair wand because I absolutely love it! BUT... I'm going to have to go with my Naked 2 palette. I can seriously throw away all other eye shadows that I own because that's the only eye shadow I use now. I do want the Naked 3 palette since it introduced some new colors, but if I were going to be stranded on a dessert island and could only take a limited amount of makeup (hey, this is my hypothetical scenario, no judging!) then I would be totally happy with just my Naked 2. 

Here's a picture of me wearing eye shadow from my Naked 2 palette but also with my hair done by my hair wand. So see... it's a good picture because it really shows both of my loves. ;) { And just in case you are that curious about my hair wand, I went with a Remington hair wand that I got at Target. It was like $30 so not a huge financial burden if you want to try it out. I absolutely LOVE mine. }

Alrighty, that wraps up this week's Sunday Social. It's a fun way to get to know other bloggers so feel free to join in. You are welcome to use this week's questions, or get your post ready for next week by visiting Ashley's blog and getting a sneak peek at next week's questions.

  1. Is it weird that I totally remember when you started wearing makeup? One day it was just like BAM! Regina has eyelashes! Lol
    Ooh and I LOVE my curling wands too! I remember my first one was the Remington one and I had to order it online because it was sold out everywhere and it wouldn't ship to my address for some reason so I shipped it to Mama's. When I opened it I literally made my mom stand in the bathroom door and watch me curl my hair so she could appreciate the awesomeness of this tool!
