  1. Great list! :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog, too. To answer your question, I had the graphics made for me by a graphic designer named Zoey... her link is at the bottom of my page. She does layouts and things like banners and logos, too. Thanks again! :) I'll keep an eye on your blog!

  2. Hey Emily! When is your next QOW? Could you do a "how much do you spend on cosmetics/skincare products a week/month?" Or "Where do you get most of your makeup from" or "WHere is your fav place to purchase makeup?"

  3. Hi! I'm acutally not sure if i'm going to be doing any more questions of the week on my youtube channel- simply because it takes so long to tally up the responses! I really like them, but it had just become really time consuming. or maybe i should survey people on how much they like the QOW? haha :D

  4. Put a poll on your blog! I guess its not as accurate as videos and you probably get less hits on here. So just wondering.. what was the winner of the foundation QOW

  5. Hi Emily! I was wondering if you have tried everyday minerals pressed foundation or blushes? I see that everyday minerals is your favorite mineral foundation. I really like there products and they are affordable. Thanks
