Meet your fellow Meg Head! One big happy makeup family!
Vocation: Graphic designer, Photoshop is my best friend.
What is in your purse? I love BIG purses so I carry around LOTS of things, my iPhone, an Yves Rocher lip balm, a Dr. Ricaud hand cream, Chanel Candy glow lipgloss, leather gloves from ZARA, magazines, wallet, keys, bottle of water, passport...I pretty much put everything that can fit in my purse lol.
Guilty Pleasure: Nutella, this is the best chocolate thing in the world I eat it straight from the jar lol
Skin color, type and any special skin concerns: my skin is light with yellow undertones, in winter my it doesn't look so good, No sun for months is terrible for the skin at least for mine. Sun if you read me please come back I need you.
Beauty inspiration: Ok I won't be very original but like my friend Emylie, to me Marilyn Monroe is THE WOMAN, nobody will ever be prettier than her she was strong, beautiful, glamorous, independant, curvy and GORGEOUS. But if I had to pick a French inspiration it would be Brigitte Bardot, she was so pretty and sexy.
Guilty Pleasure: My first addictive guilty pleasure is buying too many bags... and drink Coca Cola I prefer the real Coke but my body prefers the Diet :( And my little luxury once a month is a relaxing massage at a beauty institute.
Skin color, type and any special skin concerns: Dry and sensitive skin with some redness.
Beauty inspiration: My beauty inspiration/glamour icon is Marylin Monroe - she was so beautiful all the time... And of course all women who feel good in their skin, who enjoy the life whatever their age and weight is!!!
Vocation: At the moment student, studying Bachelor of Commerce specializing in Management and Banking & Finance hoping to take my honours in Management and maybe become an HR Manager, also I want to be a part-time make up artist
What is in your purse? Usually my netbook, purse, keys, diary, pencil box, and car radio and when I go out I take my purse, keys, lip brush and the lipstick and lipgloss I would have put on.
Guilty Pleasure: almonds
Skin color, type and any special skin concerns: Ivory with pink undertones, I have oily to combination skin and it's very very sensitive. I had mild acne up to a year ago but I still have a bit of spots now and then.
Beauty inspiration: Anne Hathaway, she is such a glamorous and down to earth actress I really really love her style! When I'm in a more casual mood I look at Teri Hatcher's character Susan - I love all those baggy cardigans, hehe.
Vocation: Optician hoping to go back to get my masters soon :)
What is in your purse? My purse has so many things in it. I have a vera bradley backpack purse and it holds quite a bit: wallet, migrain med, excedrine migraine, nail file and about 6 different types of lip balms (I have a problem).
Guilty Pleasure: I have a few guilty pleasures. My first and foremost is lip balms in which I own so many that my friends tease me. And my second is shoes... I have about 50 pairs or so and I cleaned out my closet and threw about 12 pairs away... I own enough body sprays and lotions to keep an entire third world country smelling lovely. Skin color, type and any special skin concerns: I have fair to medium skin with olive and yellow undertones. I have combination skin that is prone to break outs especially during my monthly. My biggest skin issues are that I have a condition called melasma which causes darkening of the skin - it drives me absolutely insane! I am also always on the look out for something to help with signs of aging because I'm getting to the age that i have to worry about it.
Beauty inspiration: Sophia Loren... she is a beautiful and natural looking woman. I love the look of natural beauty, natural grace, and natural sincerity - it looks good on everyone.
Vocation: Training Specialist for the MathWorks What is in your purse?Dove Cream Oil Intensive Body Lotion, Jelly Pong Pong Lip Sorbet in Carmel Chic, Erbaviva Lip and Cheek balm (great for lips, chapped cheeks and cuticles!). My wallet, phone, work security fob and a picture of my one-year-old son, Kyle. I also have a bottle of water on me all the time, hydration is an essential beauty element!
Guilty Pleasure: A really good book, a really good massage chair and a really good pedicurist. All at the same time! I love my son and husband, but that is some quality 'me' time!
Skin color, type and any special skin concerns: I have medium skin that tans very well, but can get pretty fair in the winter. It's pretty normal, a little oily at times around my nose, and my eyes can get very dry in the winter, but other than that, I have no real complaints. I just need a light moisturizer and some under eye concealer and I'm good to go. My only concern is that the less sleep I get, the more the under eye circles are bugging me. I need a good nighttime eye cream that will allow me to wake up refreshed, not puffy or dry and awake. Regardless of how early my son wakes up.
Beauty inspiration: I will always remember my grandmother who passed away about 15 years ago carrying around her little lipstick case with a tiny mirror everywhere. No matter where we went, she was always touching up with this crazy fuchsia pink color that just worked. She was not afraid of color, and knew that the perfect shade can instantly pull you together. I loved that even while suffering from pancreatic cancer, she always had her lipstick on. And it was perfect.
Guilty Pleasure: I'm addicted to EBAY. I would rather shop on EBAY than go to the mall anyday. The thrill of the auction and finding stuff that nobody else has!!! Also, I buy wayyyyy too much underwear. And last but not least, my tattoo and piercing addiction. I love enhancing every aspect of myself.
Skin color, type and any special skin concerns: I am one of the palest people I've met. I can never find foundations that are light enough for me. Sometimes I use self-tanner just to match a foundation, haha. I tend to break out if I use heavy makeup or sleep with my makeup on. (Thank DOG for Proactiv) Also, I have mild psoriasis and am always looking for the best lotions and creams to keep my skin soft and smooth.
Beauty inspiration: I'm inspired by music mostly. I like to look the waymusic makes me feel. I'm also inspired by Japanese Culture quite a bit. Traditional and modern both. And lastly, by nature, especially the ocean. The colors, the smells, the beauty of sealife...
Age: 42 Vocation: Jacqueline of All Trades - Master of Some I loved working for "Leisure Lady" (family owned by Southern Baptists, no less!). We sold bras and boobs, butt pads, edible panties, sex toys, hooker looking dresses, thongs that glow-in-the-dark, play music, have dangling rhinestones, feathers, marabou & leather, plus a whole lot more. I knew every stripper & drag queen in town. This was back in 1992, long before thongs were popular. I did my persuasive speech in college about why YOU should switch from granny panties to thongs and made an "A". Also, voted "Best Public Speaker", which was really exciting for me, because I'm normally VERY shy. Once I feel comfortable, you will wonder where the remote control is. What is in your purse? Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E, Swivel Stick Revlon Lipstick - Cherries in the Snow #440 (Been wearing color since late 80's), Revlon Lipstick - Raspberry Bite #745, Revlon Lipstick - Wild Berries #36, Maybelline Wet Shine Diamonds Liquid - Berrie #50, Aveda Lipstick - Scarlet Sage #731 (same tube since 1988), it's a gorgeous blue red, Leopard Faux Fur Lipstick Case, prescription bottle of Ativan - I use this when I visit my mother and if my 16 & 13 year old nieces are having an attitude. I don't visit often, so the Ativan last a long time! Guilty Pleasure: I guess getting a neck and shoulder massage by a professional, pedicures and I love, love, love, long scalp massages while being shampooed. It just might be better than sex! Seriously, it can be that good if you have someone well trained.
Name: Stephanie Silva Age: 15 Vocation: Student, Part time umpire for girl's softball. What is in your purse? Rosebud Salve, Victoria's Secret lip gloss in Pina Colada, my library card, Dove Go Fresh Deodorant in Cucumber, Lise Watier corrector palette, Sunsilk Waves of Envy Hair Spray. Guilty Pleasure: Buying cleansers. I'm always on the look out for cleansers even though I have more than enough. If the packaging looks good, it's organic or it smells good I'm sold. Skin color, type and any special skin concerns: I had to google this one! But I think I have olive skin tone. I have combination skin. I don't really have a lot of acne, but because I'm out in the sun a lot during summer (and when I was younger I never wore sun screen), I have some sun damage. Also sometimes at the end of the day the area around my nose gets oily. Beauty inspiration: I think my beauty inspiration is you ladies at megsmakeup.com. I was never really into makeup even though I know there are a lot of girls my age who are. Mostly because I never really knew what to do with it. I learnt so much from this site and from all your tips and reviews on products.

Guilty Pleasure: My guilty pleasure would have to be moisturizers! I'm always looking for one that is perfect for my skin, at a reasonable price. I also love chocolate bars and trying to perfect a chocolate chip cookies recipe (:
Skin color, type and any special skin concerns: I have fairly fair skin. It's combination, but it's leaning more towards the dry side since it's getting colder up here in south Ontario! I have very evident bags under my eyes, that always make me look tired! I also have a difficult time getting rid of acne scars.
Beauty inspiration: I think my biggest inspiration is looking at people around me! I love seeing what other people are using and how they're using it. I also love looking at makeup ads, especially for GOSH cosmetics.
