Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 656

have a joyful day poll holiday
Feeling the spirit!

So…what is the Monday Poll?

Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of five more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a good start. 🌻

    1. Candy canes or roasted chestnuts?

    Roasted chestnuts. No doubt!

    2. What’s more important to you — mascara or brow pencils?

    Ooh! — this one’s brutal. I would say that both are important to me (LOL) and necessary for me to feel like a real live girl…but if you’re making me pick one…then mascara all the way. When, like me, you don’t have a deep crease, mascara works wonders to open up the eyes.

    3. Last holiday movie you watched?

    I watched a HILARIOUS movie on Disney+ called Godmothered last weekend! It’s about an inexperienced rookie fairy godmother who’s determined to become the best godmother she can be, so she goes rogue to help a Boston mom and her family find their “happily ever after” over the holidays.

    4. Concealer or blush?

    I’ll take all the blush please.

    5. Foundation or lipstick?

    TOUGH! I’d go with lipstick, I guess, even though we’re all sheltered in place until January, and nobody but my immediate fam-bam will see it.

    Hey, at least I can wear it around the house. That makes me happy.

    6. Straight or wavy hair?

    Although I love how tidy straight hair looks, it’s such a chore to get my hair to look that way. Seriously, it involves, like, three days of advance planning! So I’ll go with wavy hair, since mine already has lots of natural waves, and it’s easier to deal with.

    7. Egg nog or holiday fruitcake?

    BLAH to either, but I guess I could do holiday fruitcake if I had a big cup of coffee or hot chocolate to wash it down…

    8. Last series you marathoned?

    Virgin River season 2 on Netflix is where it’s at, babe!

    9. What color are you socks today?

    I’m wearing light gray ’80s aerobics instructor-style thick socks (it’s cold here today). They’re all scrunched up around my ankles!

    Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
