Bionic Asks: Do you provide cosmetics advice?

Bionic Asks - Makeup and beauty question serie

This week’s Bionic Asks
Do your friends ever turn to you for advice on hair care products, makeup colors, or skin care regimens? If so, how do you go about helping them- through your own experience?

Or are you like me and quiz them endlessly on their goals, allergies, etc and then spend precious hours researching potential product candidates? (Yeah, I can’t help it… I’m a bit obsessive about the whole research and informed decision thing!)

As I was filming makeup tutorials last year, I get asked a lot of questions! I did learn a lot though, so I am happy to pass on any info I did learn. Funny thing is our makeup artist didn’t turn up for filming of our new series last week and I had to step in, and the actresses told me I did better makeup look than the makeup artist!! LOL!

So funny this post because that is why I started my blog! I get asked so much for advice that it was easier to put all the info into one place and send it out into the cyber world for all to use!!! Experience has given me the ability to think quickly when someone comes to me with a makeup question, but there are other times when I too must do endless research in order to help.

I am always researching products- especially skin care- to find out if the ingredients can live up to their claims, if they are packaged in a way that works with the main ingredients and if the “powerful agents” are strong enough to work. I quiz people on their habits, allergies, skin type (or what they think they have) and scour the net for the perfect product. And I love makeup! I also love giving my friends makeovers, including hair. I am a bit obsessed!

I have a trade off with my bestie – I help her with skincare/beauty stuff (which, if i don’t know I sure can look up) and she helps me with clothes.
We each have our strengths, and it helps to use them for each other.

Yes, I do get asked, mainly, “what foundation do you use?” Unfortunately, I don’t use any. Eep.

Ummm… yeah, I get asked all the time! ‘Course when you live, eat and dream this stuff, I fortunately don’t have to spend too much time researching. I have a harder time not rambling on too much! Just ask Melissa, lol.

I love to give cosmetic or hair advice… I really take it as a compliment when I get asked and seeing that I don’t give too many compliments to myself, like most women, it is nice to collect the ones from others and store them away for a rainy day! : ) I love trying new products and telling people my opinion on what I feel works and what doesn’t. I have tried what seems to be all lines of cosmetics and over the counter goodies and if us girls can find a great product for a good bargain, I feel like we all WIN!
