Is This Real Life?!

(Sorry this Friday post is on a Saturday! I had to present this blog for my senior capstone yesterday and things were just too crazy.)

So the other day I heard from BeautyBySarahMarie and found out that I had received my second Liebster Award in one week! Seriously, thank you so much. I put a lot of time and effort into my posts and it is so rewarding to hear from my other bloggers (who I know do the same) that they appreciate it. Make sure you check out BeautyBySarahMarie and follow her! She has some great beauty know-how that we can all learn from!

Just a recap, Liebster Awards are given to acknowledge the wonderful hard work and dedication that bloggers do. They are for up and coming bloggers who haven’t had their big break yet but deserve recognition. It’s a way to get exposure and hopefully gain more followers. To participate you answer the questions of your nominator, then come up with 10 new questions and pick 10 small blogs (under 500 followers) to receive the award. Make sure you let them know they’ve been nominated so they can have their own Liebster Award post.

Here are BeautyBySarahMarie‘s questions and my answers.

What is your Holy Grail Product?

My Anastasia Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes set. I’m obsessed with my eyebrows and this set helps me keep them beautifully groomed.

What product do you buy least often?

Probably liquid foundation. I don’t really wear it.

Do you have a morning skin care regime?

What is the best compliment you’ve gotten on your makeup?

Can’t remember anything specific but I love when people comment on my lip color.

Yes my friends always ask me to their eyes because they know I have a ton of eyeshadow.

I never chose my nominees for the first week, so I am just going to combine them for now and nominate 10 of my newest favorite blogs!  (kind of cheating b/c she has 1,000 but I just love it too much!)
