Monday, Monday

Monday, Monday. The holidays have fallen in a really weird way this year. Monday, Tuesday, and Friday were work days (at my, “real life,” job) last week and this week – but the week of Christmas was super busy. With all the traveling to see friends and family, I’m afraid I didn’t get much in the way of work done for the blog (not an excuse, just reality!)

I’m trudging through this Monday with a cranberry Red Bull (because Bawls isn’t readily available and the original Red Bull reminds me of cough medicine). I’m thankful that I re-learned how to use my Maybelline Color Tattoos since they, along with a L’Oreal Infalliable shadow, enabled me to slap on some eye makeup in under 90 seconds to look like I give at least a couple bothers.

Regular content will return Wednesday (with December 2014 Favorites). In the meantime, here’s some stuff to check out/do:

Outside of Beauty Skeptic, I recommend:

  • Coastal Scents, who is currently having 40% off their entire site through the end of the year – great if you want to experiment with color without committing/investing in a prestige brand, also great for their Elite Brush sets and 22-piece brush set.
  • Capitol Hill Style, a professional style blog rife with snark.
  • The Small Things Blog, which is a little bit of hair and beauty and a little bit of lifestyle. Kate makes hair wizardry look so easy – but I guess that comes with professional territory, huh?
  • Too Faced is currently holding 50% off their sale section.
  • Sephora has an extra 20% off their clearance.
  • Go watch some Batalash; learn some makeup stuff and laugh.

I hope everyone enjoyed their respective holidays. Let’s chat – if you celebrated a gift-giving holiday, did you get any fun beauty stuff?
