Q & A with Se'ymone

Hey Bella's.. I am going to take the time out to answer a few questions that I receive often. I decided to do this because I feel it is a way to know more about me. On to the questions.
1. What brands do you use for your makeup?
Answer: I use many different brands on myself. I love Make Up Forever Foundations and eyeshadows. Make Up Forever in my humble opinion, is better than MACs regular line but neck and neck with MAC Pro line. Let see, I use MAC alot. However I will no longer use face items. You guys already know that I am having a love affair with Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. I also use NARS blushes and lip products. My fave drugstore brands would be Milani, H.I.P and Black Radiance. Oops, I forgot my beloved Guerlaine. I love there bronzers and luminizers.
2. Do I retouch my photos?
Answer: I wouldn't even know how to do it, so the answer is no. If I have a pimple or rough skin that day that is what you will see.
3. Why the difference in previous photos to now?
Answer: I am guessing this to mean skill level. Thats a good question and the answer is simple, I am lazy. U are seeing some of my skills now because I have to go to work everyday as a makeup artist and manager of a counter. I have to show skills in order to build initial trust with clients. On a normal day as a mom and a full time student. I dont take much time out to do the bells and whistles.. My kids wouldn't appreciate it. Lol. I am starting to change that now because I am gaining more outside clients by banging out my face everyday but that in itself gets tiring. There are days or weeks at time were it is just not that serious for me.
4. Can I do tutorials?

Answer: At this time, with so much going on I dont see how I could. If u didn't know, the other half was asked by his job to go to California and we accepted. Cali here I come. Back to the question at hand. The lighting in my house is horrible at best. Let me say this, I am open minded to the idea but I don't know how to use a video editor and the picture thing seems as though it would take a lifetime. I am willing to try, so my readers that do youtube videos can u give me some pointers and I will try to make a video but dont beat me up if the quality isnt that great. Well that is all for now folks. I enjoyed doing this. If you have any questions for me dont hestitate to ask, I am more than happy to answer any questions.

I have to say that your makeup is on point girl, and I do see the difference in the Bobbi Brown foundation, and MAC, I think I need to try a sample to see if I like, I bought Lorac Natural Performance and I am feeling it right now. Hope you enjoy Cali, that is a major move.

Thank you for sharing, Seymone!!!

And yes I agree with Tysh, I could see the difference in the foundations with Bobbi Brown, Make Up Forever and MAC. You can tell that the Bobbi Brown and MUFE is better. I would say that even on myself, I found this to be true. But your makeup is always on point regardless of the foundation you wear.

I can't wait to check out Bobbi Brown's stuff with you. I already have her Gunmental e/s. You should get that too, if you don't already have it. *wink, wink

hi seymone. i love your blog. i was wondering what color foundation do you use in BOBBI Brown cosmetics. I am a NW45/50 Studio fix and NC 50 studio tech. I am interested in the other foundations like MUFE HD and Bobbi Brown and i think are around the same color.

thank you so much

Family Reflections is moving to Cali…now I have an excuse to visit…

I like the way Bobbi Brown and MUFE look on you. I personally don’t mess with MAC face makeup unless I want that casket ready look. I hate the mask feeling it gives me.

@KK: hey lady.. I call my baby girl KK. In Bobbi Brown I wear Chestnut but I probably could get away with walnut. In MUFE, in the summer I know my color was 180 but now it is probably lighter but I have no feeling to check out any other colors. LOL.

Aww. I am glad u love the blog. Positive feedback is always welcome. If u have any other questions don't hesitate to ask..
