Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 750


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 more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007).

1. One of your favorite things about fall beauty?

Ooh, the nail polish. Please give me all the deep and moody burgundies, greens and blues!

2. Candy corn: great or gross?

A little bit of both? I can handle a few nibbles, but there’s no way I’m eating a whole bag of candy corn.

3. In your neck of the woods, how big is the change in the fall leaves?

I live in a neighborhood with a lot of old trees that drop their leaves in the fall, and the change is pretty significant. It usually starts around the middle of October, and by the end of November, most of the trees are bare and the streets are carpeted in leaves.

4. Gray or brown eyeshadow?

Brown. Although I love how gray instantly adds the illusion of a deeper crease, brown requires less effort for me to blend.

5. Hot chocolate or hot tea?

Right now, a hot cup of green tea with a drizzle of honey and a squeeze of lemon sounds good.

6. A memorable Halloween costume?

In kindergarten I dressed up as Big Bird, and I wasn’t happy about it at all. I guess my parents were busy because even though they’d been in the US for years and knew about Halloween, it never occurred to them that their five-year-old child would need a costume. So, the day before Halloween, we drove all over to find me something last minute, and everything was too big or too weird. I remember ending up at the Thrifty’s in our town and picking a Big Bird costume because it was the only thing that was available and would fit me. I guess I should’ve been hungry and I had something, but I mostly remember the disappointment.

7. Would you rather get a blowout or a mani/pedi?

I’ll take the mani/pedi!

8. Persimmons or apples?

Persimmons any day of the week.

9. The scariest movie you ever watched?

Oh gosh, for years I was terrified of the movie “Salem’s Lot.” One day after school, one of the older children at the babysitter’s house thought it was a good idea to play it on the VCR for a bunch of elementary school kids, and why they were able to get away with it, I will never know.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
