Makeup Junkie Wants To Know Poll and CARGO Contest!

As a makeup artist, I am fortunate enough to do the faces of some pretty amazing women. They all range from non-makeup wearers to I-can't-live-without-my-makeup fanatics. I love both type of clients - no I really do. It's fun gabbing about makeup and different makeup techniques with avid makeup wearers but the real fun is converting someone who rarely wears makeup and making them true believers!

Makeup Junkie wants to know how often do you get your makeup done? Only on special occasions - birthdays, weddings, prom? Or do you get your makeup done to pamper yourself? New makeup launch? And are fake lashes involved? Do you prefer your makeup done at a counter, salon, spa, or have a makeup artist come to you? Makeup Junkie wants to know it all! 


All you have to do is leave a comment (be as thorough as you'd like!) and you will be automatically entered to win a year supply of CARGO's 3 Triple Action Mascara set to launch Fall 2010! The 3 is formulated to do it all - thicken, lengthen, and curl! This mascara is loaded with anti-oxidants and 11 amino acids essential for the health of hair follicles. It's good for you and it makes you look great! (Stay tuned for my review.)

One winner will be randomly chosen and will be announced on June 30th at 12 pm! I look forward to your comments! Open to Canadian and U.S. residents. My girl, Farah, over at Faces By Farah, is also giving away the 3 Mascara so you can double your chances of winning this mascara before it launches!

CARGO 3 Triple Action Mascara will retail for $20 USD/CDN. Available Fall 2010 at Murale, Sears Toronto Eaton Centre, the Bay on Yonge St., and select Independent Beauty Boutiques.

I only ever get my makeup done for special occasions. My wedding, galas and special events. With my job it helps to reduce the stress involved with getting ready for events.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I've never had my makeup done!
I'm probably in the minority!

Halifax said...

I only go to demo events at SDM where the MUA from certain brands do makeup on people :) No, they didn't do false lashes. Normally I'd go for dinner or drink afterward to show off, lol

Haven't gone to a wedding for so long. Don't know any of my friends who is going to get married soon :)

Kimberly said...

I don't get my makeup done either. I treat myself to makeup purchases for special occasions (and some not-so-special occasions) but I still always do it myself.

i dont typically like how other people do my makeup, so if its just a night out i glam it up with some falsies

oh no :( i have to admit that i have never (YET) gotten my makeup done by a makeup artist. I did however, have makeup put on me by one of my good friends when we were getting ready for a party.. and she's working hard taking courses to become a true makeup artist now.. so i guess that counts right? haha

Amina said...

I love make up and can't live without it. I usually do it myself and from time to time go to a counter, have a MUA do it for me so I can learn new application techniques. I am not comfortable wearing fake lashes though.

Gaby said...

Máximo en 5 ocaciones un make up artist me ha maquillado para ocaciones muy especiales. De ahí trato de maquillarme sola. Poco a poco voy aprendiendo y mejorando!

Arianne said...

Very rarely.

I only get it if it's free (i.e., I don't have to buy anything), or for charity.

I would love to get my makeup done, with everything down to false lashes. I'd love to get a makeover from Laura Mercier or shu uemura counters.

Shadowy Lady said...

I'm a total junkie too and I hardly get my makeup done. I had it done for my wedding and a couple of times at MAC and that was it.

K said...

I've actually never really gotten my makeup done- I've only ever gone to counters/stores for skin consultations.

MoMO said...

I am a makeup artist. I am forever trying new looks on myself...I rarely get my makeup done.I do get the opportunity to my friends though

Susan said...

I usually get my makeup done for special events eg. birthdays, weddings, prom. I wished i had more occiasions to get my makeup done, b.c i love to get pampered

KS said...

Any chance I get to get my makeup done is always good. It doesn't matter whether it's for occasion or just for fun. Always trying different style of falsies...

athaj said...

yes, i usually have my make-up done for special occasions where i have to wear something formal. just to complete my look and not looking like you have a nice dress but not-so-good looking face to go with it. and it feels nice to be pampered by someone else during a special day. also, usually the make-up artist gives tips that are helpful. for counters, i like to have it done if the mua looks like she is very accommodating. i hate it when they make you feel inferior and when they are arrogant. what the heck, i will just go to another place, then. no thank you! plus, it's really different having your make-up done professionally. i like hearing people say that i look pretty! and when that happens, it's truly worth it!

Aside from the quick makeup counter do-overs while picking out eye shadows, I haven't gotten my makeup done since prom in high school.

Naug said...

I don't think I've ever had mine ''done'' before!

Social Buttafly said...

i've gotten my makeup done on several occasions and it looked horrible every time. i do my own makeup and it turns out beautiful. i really pamper myself when i go out with the girls with my bf. i keep it simple and classy :o)

Sharon McInnis said...

I've only ever had my makeup done once -- and that was a long time ago (the store gave us a bag with the makeup they'd used, and it was free, I just didn't care for the colours).

MakeupByDonnaMarie said...

Even though I'm a MUA myself I still like to get pampered and have my makeup done by someone else. So every now and then I'll randomly book an appointment for a makeover at a makeup counter. For special occasions I like to do the makeup myself.

eckness said...

Ah.. I've pretty much become addicted to makeup. I was really into art before i got into makeup and it just seemed so natural.. except the canvas is my face. Sometimes I even do makeup just for fun! I've ended up with some garish rainbow/glittery eye looks but also some beautiful night looks too =). If im really rushed for time i usualy at least put on my spf20 tinted moisturizer and some nude brown eyeliner.

I've only had my makeup done twice, once when I graduated highschool and I promptly washed it off and redid it myself. The second time was at Sephora during a Benefit event. I have dry skin, and I think most people have normal to oily skin, so I often feel like they use too much powder on me because they don't understand dry skin very well.

Ada said...

I've had my makeup done about 4 times. The last one was at Shiseido and I thought they did a nice job making me look pretty. I tend to gravitate to bright colours so when I see the neutrals on my face from a makeover, I'm surprised and a little disappointed that it's so tame.

I wear concealer, liner and mascara every time I leave the house. On special occasions I will wear foundation. I tend to not go get my makeup done. My daughter went for her graduation pictures and they did such an awesome job that she made an appointment for her prom. The same lady was not working that day and was done by someone that was not wearing any makeup and come out looking like a clown. She had to come home and redo it on her own. I judge their jobs and recommendations on how they look.

I wear make up everyday. I put on mascara, powder foundation, blush and lipgloss and lipstick. When i go out to a party i put on eyeshadow and sometimes bronzer. I put on my makeup myself but would like to get it down profeshionally at least once by MAC or something and get them to add on fake lashes as i have never tried those but love the look.
