Time Out!

Time out! 

Wow tagging brings me back, reminds me of playing Disney freeze tag on the school playground. Anyway, this is my very FIRST time being tagged, so thanks Nancy-Lee of FashionCHICsta for that! Please do check out her blog as well!

Time in!
(Zach Morris style!)

Well here it goes:

1. Who inspired your discovery of makeup?
My mom, she has champagne taste for makeup too, like Chanel and and Yves Saint Laurent.
 
2. What is your first makeup memory?
I remember playing with all the samples from Avon, my mom sold for them so I got a lot of those mini sample lipsticks! I was probably around 5 years old. I started young.
 
3. What was your biggest makeup faux pas?
I tend to stay on the more natural makeup look, so I don't recall any horrendous faux pas. But I remember my first foundation purchase in Jr.high, I was so excited to use it so I applied it in the bathroom before school started and the color ended up not matching my natural color, it was probably a few shades to light! So I ended up looking very ghostly the entire school day. ick.
 
4. Which look do you wish you invented. 
I'm going with a fashion response to this one, Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's look. The black dress, pearls, large hat and sunnies is just so glamorous!
 
5. What is your definition of beauty?
 How you present yourself. Confidence, humor and humility.
 Reminds me of this friend I had in High school, everyone thought she dressed like super weird and outrageous and so she was considered not very pretty, but I felt liked she rocked it. Her confidence in her look was o.o.c!
 
6. What is one of your dirty little makeup secrets? 
I still have this Yves Saint Laurent touche makeup pen I got for prom 2001. My mom bought it for me, and I feel like she was crazy for buying a 17yr old something so expensive. I guess that's why I keep it. Weird attachments to old icky makeup! hah! I think I'm going to go throw it away now...
 
7. Why did you name your blog, that name?
I needed a name that represents who I am and what my readers can expect from me. Fashion because that's what my blog revolves around and Palate because I have a taste for not only fashion, but for sweet and savor things! I love to bake and cook and I wanted that to be a focus in my writing as well. Palate is also a play on Palette, I taught many years of Art and have my credential as an Art teacher so that plays in my blog name as well.
 
8. How many monthly subscription services to you belong?
2, Stylemint and Harper's Bazaar.
 
9. If you could only film or only write, which one would you choose and why?
Write. I don't film. Never been fond of seeing myself talk.
 
10. What is one piece of advice you would give to a new blogger?
Use other bloggers as inspiration but stay true to your style.
 
11. What is the one piece of advice you are grateful someone shared with you?
Fake it to make it! ;)
