What three lipstick shades would you love to create?

Medium-dark ruby red with pearl in a glossier finish that doesn’t get all over your face. A medium-dark, pink-coral base with pink-to-gold shift. Muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with subtle pearl. Really I am just recreating the favorites I’ve lost over the years — Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How do you coordinate your makeup with your outfit?

Since I’m home most of the time… I do not, LOL. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What makes a product worth keeping?

On a personal level, quality has to be exceptional (or the color/finish very unique). More generally, I tend to keep permanent lines of products from popular brands, but I don’t keep most cream/gel-based formulas (like eyeliner, blush, highlighter, etc.) as I don’t find I need to go back into... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

If you could only use one category of makeup, what would you choose?

Eyeshadow. It was my first love, and it would be a terrible time to not be able to use… all the things, but eyeshadow. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How do you incorporate current trends into your routine?

I definitely end up doing so based on trying and testing out more new products than old standbys, so they pretty much incorporate themselves. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What are the most sentimental items in your collection?

Definitely MAC Jealousy Wakes and my Sydney Grace palettes, since they are my “creations” so they reflect the successes I’ve had in this career. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What do you like about Urban Decay? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Urban Decay There are a lot of permanent products from Urban Decay that I really love (Vice Lipsticks and 24/7 Eyeliners are some of my go-tos, as far as I can have go-tos!). I’ve found that their seasonal/limited edition launches can be more hit or miss, and they can be repetitive, despite the brand not having THAT many launches per year (like why it is always the same cheek trio?). — Christine Join...

Does price indicate quality in your experience?

Definitely not–I have had plenty of high-end and luxury-priced flops and lots of budget-friendly winners. There are also indies, of course, that are often less expensive than most mid-end and high-end brands and are known for excellent quality, too. I’ve found that price is often reflective of... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How do you resist the urge to impulse purchase?

For the most part, I don’t have to “control” the urge since I tend to buy new releases when they launch. For the occasions where I see a new brand that I haven’t heard of, I try to follow them on social and see how they present themselves, do some research to see if there are any issues from... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How do you handle criticism of your makeup collection?

I feel like it’s so rare to hear criticism now; I think when beauty blogging was newer and YouTube wasn’t so popular, having as much as I do was really jarring. Now, I think a lot of people understand why I have as much as I do and no longer even want that much, LOL! I don’t even add much to... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Has your relationship to skincare changed in the last year?

Early last year, I started taking a new medication, and I didn’t realize it for months later, but it actually caused deep, cystic acne and lots of it in places I had never had it. I originally thought it was just from stress (I had a lot going on, plus the pandemic!), but two weeks off the... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What do you like about makeup sponges? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Makeup Sponges I love using a dampened sponge for cream/liquid products for a sheerer effect that seems more “pressed” into my skin, but man, I loathe cleaning sponges! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]
Tags: Beauty, Christine, Weekly Features, Rant And Rave


Has your relationship with makeup changed in the last year?

I don’t think it has changed much, since I am fortunate enough to work from home normally, so the pandemic didn’t shift how I approached my day-to-day life or how much (or little) makeup I’d wear. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Has a pet ever destroyed a beauty item?

I don’t recall Mellan doing so, and he, in general, was not a destroyer of things (even as a wee pup!) unless it was wood in nature, then he did destroy a couple of things over his lifetime. We have a gate blocking off access to the makeup room for Winston, so thus far, he hasn’t gotten into... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What kind of beauty content do you engage with most?

I’m mostly a lurker and the content I come across tends to be through Instagram, which is mostly new product releases and looks, but I don’t read/watch a lot of review content on purpose (unless I’ve already reviewed myself), so then if I watch a video, it’ll usually be a get-ready-with-me... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What has made you more confident about using makeup?

Practice in general has gone a long way to building confidence! Secondly, I think being more comfortable in my own/with who I am and how I look has done more for building confidence in makeup, though. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Do you layer lipsticks?

I definitely have and do, though I’m more likely to use a lipstick and then a gloss on top to alter color, but if I have something in mind… I will layer to get my vision! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]
