Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 638

Keep your chin up, my friend

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. Claw clip or scrunchie?

    Scrunchies-4-life, lady!

    2. Speaking of scrunchies, do you actually wash yours?

    I have about a handful of them and will throw them in the washer every couple weeks (or so), but back in the day when scrunchies were ubiquitous — when they were at the height of their scrunchie-ness — I did not.

    This was gross, now that I think about it… I bet all of mine were crusted over with hairspray and L’Oréal Pumping Curls.

    3. Benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid?

    Benzoyl peroxide. It’s not revolutionary, but BP works for my skin!

    4. Should your manicure match your pedicure?

    Hmm… I prefer having different colors on my nails than I have on my toes, but cohesiveness is cool too!

    5. When was the last time you cleaned your makeup brushes, and what did you use to clean them?

    Last time was about a week and a half ago, and I used a bar of Dr. Bronner’s soap.

    6. What’s harder — growing out your brows or growing out a bad haircut?

    Ooh! They’re both challenging, but growing out brows are harder, methinks, because you can’t just put them in a ponytail or hide them underneath a hat… They’re just “there” in the middle of your face, staring at you every time you look in the mirror!

    7. Something you actually like about your quarantine hair?

    Sigh… I desperately need a haircut, but one thing my mop has going for it is that it’s still in relatively healthy shape. My ends aren’t dry, and my grays are relatively smooth.

    8. Have you done any online shopping lately?

    Yes! I bought some face masks last week for the family from a brand called Caraa (a friend recommended them), and I got Connor some clothes for fall from Target and Carters because the kid just keeps growing.

    9. Y’all ready for this?

    Heck, yeah, man. BRING IT!

    Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
