Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

Introducing… Ask PinkLouLou!

That is right. We are trying something new around here, and that is a weekly Q&A sesh with the PLL. Lately I have been super overwhelmed with life, work, Simply Flawless etc, and it seems my inbox has turned to squalor. (the BB’s favorite word!)

My sorority sister Rachel actually messaged me about doing something like this a few weeks ago.

I thought it was a great idea, and would help to streamline the Q&A process, and my inbox!! So I set up a NEW email, just for Ask PinkLouLou Thursdays!

This way, your questions will not get lost in my other PLL email, where EVERYTHING goes (including every store email EVER) and they will be easy to find and quickly address 🙂

Each week I will answer a few of the Ask PinkLouLou questions on Thursdays! I have seen a pattern in commonly asked questions, so I think this will help a lot of you at once! (hopefully?! HA!) Feel free to ask anything, I mean anything. Hair and Makeup, work, life, where the HECK that one guy went to?!? HA. no but really, anything is fair game, so go for it.

You guys are so awesome, and I feel so awful when I get busy with life and let my email get… behind. I am really hoping this will help me stay organized, and help me stay in better touch with each and every one of you. I have been super reflective lately… (PMS anyone?!) And just want you all to know how much EVERY comment, and EVERY email means to me. I try to respond super quickly, but sometimes life gets the better of me!

Anyways, here is our FIRST Ask PLL Thursday letter!!

Well little b,  you bet your poofy hair I have some advice for you 😉

First things first, I understand the nerves! you want them to like what you do, of course! The main thing is to not make them look like someone they are not. Just try and make them a better version of themselves 🙂 Make sense? For example, I can get away with a lot of eye makeup, because I ALWAYS wear a lot of eye makeup, haha, but some other people may be like “what the heck did you do to me, I look like a drag queen!” haha. So just try and get a sense of what they like, maybe even find some pictures together so you are both on the same page of what you are aiming for.

 

As far as lasting all day, primer is your friend. Use a primer pre-foundation, and also puuuleeease use an eye primer, or a MAC paint pot to prime the entire lid. Will keep eye makeup in place 🙂 Also for eyeliner, I like to line first with a pencil, and then over top with a liquid. That shizzz a’int moving. 😉

Also, I like the setting sprays for makeup that MAC offers, and also Urban Decay. They are to use after all of your makeup, kinda like hair spray for your face.

Hope this helps some sweetie! Just do the good work that you do, and just be who you are, makeup artist wise, because really, that is why they asked you in the first place! They LIKE what you do!!

xoxo, PLL

Until next Thursday,

  1. pink,
    what are we gonna do with you?! you are just blowin up! but seriously – great idea and i think it's awesome you're still all about your readers even when things get crazytown. 🙂

  2. Lindsey says:

    holla city of SQUALOOORRRR!!! Loved the squalor reference. Obvs.

  3. Mommy Webb says:

    Oh, Loo Love, so excited about this!!!

  4. Sami says:

    Such a fun idea! I look forward to hearing all your wonderful advice! My question is this.. How do you feel about pet alligators?! Haha I keeeed. I'm still hoping that I run into that little sucker in DT Denver someday! Don't worry I'll throw out a stink eye or two 😉

  5. This is a great idea! And I know what you mean about things getting overwhelming, I'm pretty sure I get about 1/20 of the emails/comments that you do and I still find it hard to respond! Honestly just getting a blog post up takes work most days when you're busy…and between my personal email and my work email, sometimes I honestly just want to throw my laptop in a river.

    Ha. That's not a joke though.

  6. Katie says:

    ALSO– You missed one step! Do a trial run a few days before the event, so they can give you feedback. That way you have a better idea of what they are looking for!

  7. Lauren says:

    What a great idea! Can't wait to see these questions! 🙂

  8. -Emily- says:

    What a great idea this is!! I will be emailing you a question 🙂 Can't wait to see all the Q&As!!

  9. Jessie says:

    LOVE this idea! I also love the notebook paper with the question. Where did you find that??

  10. Lauren says:

    What do tou use for your cute pics and graphics? Photoshop?

  11. Brooke says:

    I just love this and your blog design is to die for.

  12. Kenzie Smith says:

    What an awesome idea! I bet you are going to get some fabulous questions 😀 Now I have to think of if I have any haha!
