My name is Mimi. Though I share a first name with the rude blonde gal on the Drew Carey show, I'd like to think that I have better taste in makeup. However, sharing the same name also gives me weird hang ups about blue eyeshadow.
I read each and every comment. I try my hardest to respond back, but sometimes I get caught up on work, school, life. Just know that I appreciate each one. I also appreciate lurkers. Even if you never say anything, that's fine with me! I'm just happy you keep coming back to check out my content.
I went to school for cosmetology in New Jersey and currently reside in the Sacramento area. Whoo, California! I recently went back to college to study mechanical engineering.
You probably want to know for comparison's sake that I'm closest to NC20-25 in MAC foundations and 117 in Make Up Forever HD foundation. The foundation shade that I've found to be the best match is Graftobian Hi Def Glamour Creme in Ingenue in the winter and Vixen in the summer.
I use a Canon T3, which is the most basic DSLR that Canon makes.

I decided to copy onto this page all the blog awards and the fun questions that come with them.
Er, I haven't read any fashion/beauty magazines in the longest time. I became pretty tired of the same beauty advice regurgitated to me over and over again as well as the product placements. I much rather read blogs!
2. Who is your favorite singer/band?
I started loving Muse almost six years ago and I doubt I'll ever stop. I also like Rammstein, Lykke Li and have a strange fondness for Nicki Minaj which I really don't understand.
3. Who is your favorite YouTube guru?
I honestly do not watch any YouTube gurus, for many reasons. Some have voices that put me to sleep (Michelle Phan), some are truly awesome and talented like the sisters Pixiwoo or Lisa Eldridge but I can't understand (I have an extremely difficult time understanding English accents). Of course, there's other "gurus" that are 16 years old and somehow spend more in one haul than I can afford in six months. Those videos just leave me somewhat appalled.
4. What is your favorite makeup product?
Right now, my favorite item is my Clarisonic Mia that my boyfriend gave me for Christmas. It has really done wonders for my skin and I'm so incredibly happy that it was given to me.
5. Where would you like to live?
California. I'm not big on living in crowded L.A., but a place like Sacramento would suit me just fine. Only a few hours away from the beach and mountains, yet close enough to some great shopping. Oh, not to mention I'd be living much closer to a certain fine fellow that I know!
6. What is your favorite film?
Have you ever seen Pan's Labyrinth? It's an extremely dark, somewhat disturbing film that I love all the same. It's in Spanish, so you'll have to read subtitles, but I actually love doing that.
7. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
I think only about eight or so. Sadly, I spend about 50% of the year in orange Gizeh Birkenstocks. They're not the cutest thing out there (far from it, I know) but they have great arch support and are quite practical.
8. What is your favorite color?
Scarlet. Not red, not orange, but scarlet
