I have very much enjoyed reading the responses from my survey last week.
You guys are hilarious. Every time I do something like this where I get a chance to get to know you better or when I have an event and get to meet readers I am always more and more convinced that I have found my best people.
Kind, smart, warm and completely hilarious.
I figured you’d enjoy reading some of the answers as well!
In response to where you are in your makeup know how level:
54% of you know enough to get by but are wanting more
22% Only know what they’ve learned at maskcara.com so EXPERT level in other words:)
16% are TOTAL Glamazons
& 4% were going with zero knowledge
How long have you been reading ranged from one day all the way back to the very beginning (3 years in April!) With a vast majority in the past year.
Among your biggest beauty concerns maturing/agin skin was definitely the most talked about. Acne was the next most common answer. Eyeshadow was probably third. I’m pretty excited to tackle these:)
What did you guys want to see more of?
Makeup tutorials! and quick beauty tips won that one with flying colors
As for what you don’t want to see more of…
Outfits took an easy win there…
I loved reading some of the things you guys wanted to hear more about that weren’t beauty related. A few of my favorites were:
I loved your posts about your past and your healing over rough times. It helped me feel less alone to know that you’ve gone through similar trials and heartache 🙂
I always LOVE to take peeks into people’s lives (what’s in your bag or what’s on your bedside table are fascinating to me for some reason?!)
photography skills and tips
I am ALWAYS looking for a good book so I took some liberties with my survey to steal your ideas. Most often mentioned were:
The Fault in Our Stars – I couldn’t agree more, I adore this book. I totally did the ugly cry for at least 50 pages.
Pride and Prejudice – I haven’t read it yet, should I be ashamed? cause I am.
To Kill a Mockingbird – Classic. Easily one of my favorites too.
& Harry Potter – Which is a perfectly reasonable choice but- don’t be mad – I just can’t get into it. I’m really sad about it too, it totally bums me out when I can’t get into something that everyone else seems to derive so much joy from (Breaking Bad, I’m looking at you.)
Reading other people’s happy things is the best because it can’t not make you happy too. Especially when they get really specific:)
Husbands and children (furry ones included) definitely ranked highest here taking up a vast majority. Among the rest:
Making other people happy (totally), baking, singing, dancing, running, looking pretty, food, football, photography and prayer.
My personal favorite:
Being with my 2 little girls and husband and hearing them laugh that deep soul uninhibited laugh!
Cause I can’t think of anything better than that.
Other blogs you follow?
There were SO many blogs added here, many of which I’d never heard of so I am excited to venture out, in the meantime some of the favorites were:
The Small Things Blog – I love her, she seems so sweet and classy.
Vintage Revivals – cause, Of course!
The MM&L Show – I just hung out with those two last night! Every bit as hilarious and beautiful in person!
How Sweet Eats – Such great taste you guys have, she is amazing.
Cassidy Miller – I DARE you not to fall in love this her. Such a light of positivity and love.
So if happy things make me happy, why is it that hearing pet peeves kind of make me happy too?
These were by far the funniest in the list. Rudeness, bad driving and bad grammar in all kinds of specifications are bugging you guys the most but there were many, many others like:
The word peeve. (Agreed! Why is that word so bothersome? I guess it’s fitting)
When a blog isn’t updated regularly and people who are rude. And people who don’t appreciate a good British tv show. (yep, yes & double yep:)
I hate it when someone sits on my made bed. Like, really, did you not see that 1) it was MY bed and 2) It was perfectly made. In addition, I keep telling my family to not go on my bed and they do it anyway. Plus it is in my room, which is just mine. So, if it’s my room, my bed, it’s perfectly made, and I’ve told you a hundred times to not sit on it, then why do you do it anyway?
(I agree, why are they not getting this bed sitting thing!!?? 🙂
I’m a little frustrated that I can’t think of one — though I suppose that’s a good thing, right? (Totally:)
Thanks for sharing your ideas/opinions and cracking me up
Have an incredibly good day!
