I thought I do a compilation of the most commonly asked questions I get on the blog, Twitter and Formspring. These questions are pretty random ones, but they are the ones I get asked the most. Let's make this post even more random by adding this picture of me wearing my beloved straw hat, hahah:


1. What is your skintone?
by far, this is the most popular question I get asked. Not really sure why. I'm light to light medium with neutral undertones, probably leaning cool. My foundation shades are MAC - NW25/MAC F&B - N2/MUFE HD - 118/MUFE F&B - #32/Nars sheer glow - Santa Fe/Diorskin Nude - #23/Smashbox HD - Light #3

2. What is/are your favourite foundations?
I think my skin must look better in photos that it actually is as I always get asked about my foundation. I will be doing a full review of all the bottles of foundation I rotate in a few weeks but right now, my favourites are Nars Sheer Glow for daytime and MUFE HD for night time. I use either MAC F&B or MUFE F&B on the weekends and during the summer.

3. What is your ethnicity? Are you East European/Russian/Italian/Argentinian/Armenian...? I get mistaken for many ethnicites under the sun by ppl from the areas they think I'm also from. I very rarely get identified correctly though. I'm mostly Persian (85%) and have some Russian mixes in there.

4. Recommend me a red lipstick. Given all the red lipstick looks I do, I'm not surprised at this question. It's a bit hard though if I don't know your complexion. But both Chanel Rouge Allure in Audace and MAC Russian Red are very universally flattering. I can make better recommendation if I know what you look like.

5. Do you/will you work as a makeup artist? I've never worked as a makeup artist and I'm not planing on in the future. I like for makeup and my blog to remain a hobby. I love my job as an engineer and am fully satisfied with the fast paste environment of my industry.

6. Please share you hair care routine. How do you style your hair? I get many comments about my hair and my favourite products. I'm planing on doing a blog post very soon featuring my favourite products (so look out for that). But to answer quickly now, I was blessed with full and wavy hair. My hair is fine but I have a tone of it. I pretty much wash and go. I use my straightener and hair dryer probably three times a year.

7. Who is your beauty role model? My mom by far. She's the classiest and the most gorgeous woman ever. She's 51 yet doesn't look a day over 40. I look quite like so I hope I also inhertied her non-aging genes :D

8. What are some of your favourite TV shows?
I don't watch a lot of TV. I think sometimes I go weeks without turning the TV on, lol! I do watch Dexter, True Blood and the Amazing Race though. I also catch up with Project Runway and BBC documentaries on occasion.

9. How long have you been married? How many kids do you have?
I've been married for 3.5 years and have no kids as of now, lol!

10. Are your nails real?
You have no idea how ppl ask me this. My nails are real and they are naturally long and strong. It's another thing I've inherited from my mom. I have never in my life even tried acrylic or any kind of fake nails.
