Beauty Ice Breakers

BIC is the place to talk about beauty!  There are lots of fun threads, from mask to makeup (and even photo A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge ) challenges all the way to pet paradise.  In my early days, I kinda wanted to talk to everyone, but I didn't know what to talk about, I just knew I loved makeup and had found my people.

With threads like Monthly Favorites: May 2024 Edition! or
Community Favorite Concealers: Tag your Holy Grails!  , Beauty Pet Peeves 2 I feel the most comfortable when chiming in because I can talk about makeup.  I figured, hey, let's open up some discourse amongst ourselves; a thread with getting to know you questions could be kind of fun.  (And, I still get to talk about makeup.)

I'll post a question and a phrase with a blank and change it weekly? periodically. Answer one or both.

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Aw thank you @Sunnysmom ๐Ÿฅฐ I can't say it's perfect but works for me! Hope you get to try? I hope to see them results with like 1000 blushes!!

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@Sunnysmom thanks for the tag! I had a business trip this week and was so exhausted I hadnโ€™t been checking as much. I feel like Iโ€™m finally back to my pre-COVID travel schedule but 4 years older. ๐Ÿ˜‚



If you were to teach a class (or curricula if you will) at BIC, what would it be?


Foundation: Hair masks and Deep Conditioners!

Makeup Challenge of the w

Week and What Are You Wearing pt 2.

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Those are really fun threads! @Girly2Shoes , you can tag them to. It's like tagging a person, use the @ symbol and start typing out the name of the thread and they'll start to appear, it's usually towards the bottom of there are users names there. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

I'm so late getting to this @danielledanielle I love this prompt! It's so great and how fun was reading everyone's replies to it. 

I tried and tried to think about anything I could put in as a reply, that was a head scratcher! But I ended up with:

A class I would love to teach: 

๐ŸŒŸ Guide To Getting Your Glow ๐ŸŒŸ 


Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@CynthieLu sign me up 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Oof this is hard. 


I didn't exactly go to higher education so bear with me.


Highlighter- How to be seen from space.

Blush 101- For Clowns.

Beauty Lab- How to mix lipstick colors.



My Doctorates would be in how to make giant wish lists and how to get a lot of thumbs down on reviews.

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

I am dying at your responses @Samtian .  I would enjoy those classes.  You and @jaaayp would be the beloved adjuncts, the ones that teach classes outdoors and look the other way when you cut a class.

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@Samtian if you need a sub for Blush 101-for clowns I can do that.  I struggle with blush a lot

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@CorgiMommy @Samtian 

Iโ€™m pretty sure I can be the model for what NOT to do. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

I love this thread @danielledanielle , I missed it! ๐Ÿฅฐ I  would happily attend all of your classes! ๐Ÿ˜Š I think I should amend my comment about my Doctorate to say itโ€™s for sure lipstick/reds as the advanced class and my Masters would be in blush. Your Beauty Lab for Bespoke Blush would be ๐ŸคŒ๐ŸคŒ and I would have perfect attendance! ( A dream would be a Sephora collab on a tightly edited group of lipsticks in a simple luxe case with a mirror on top! Yes please! ) Tagging @blackkitty2014 and @curlychiquita unless I missed any posts. 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Loving these prompts, @danielledanielle! Excellent work, as always! ๐Ÿ˜


Tagging a few folks who may be interested and errr, I would be interested in their responses. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

thanks for the tag @itsfi ! @danielledanielle i love this haha. Itโ€™s been a hot minute since Iโ€™ve graced the halls of a post-secondary institution, but you could probably get me back in if i was teaching

  • Stats 101 - How Much Do You Actually Use That?
  • Highlighter Color Theory - Yes, They Are All Different Shades
  • Masterclass in Tips and Tricks for Fine/Thinning Hair
  • and maybe a seminar on the 5-Minute Faceโ€ฆ the tagline is โ€œyouโ€™re not going to look like you spent an hour getting ready, but you can easily fool someone into thinking you spent 30 minutes!โ€


Iโ€™d probably pursue a Doctorate in Decluttering, seeing as I could really use some help in that departmentโ€ฆ some formal education is definitely needed

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@cianni, are you saying your hair is on the fine, thin side?? Because it always looks so lush with good volume, healthy. ๐Ÿ˜ Your hair is gorgeous. ๐Ÿ’— I need to be signed up to your Masterclass stat!! I will be armed with pen and paper ๐Ÿ“ to take good notes on those tips & tricks. 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Thanks for the tag @itsfi ๐Ÿฅฐ I swear, @danielledanielle s threads always leaves me staring at the screen and scratching my head... ๐Ÿค”


I knew @Sunnysmom was Dr Blush. There's no need for a class, just a demonstration would be great LOL I would love to just sit and stare at le blush collection as blushes are opened and swatched....


As a master of none....


  • How to Freshen Up Your Stank (dry shampoo, dirty hair styles, how to rock a "I didn't brush my hair today" look) 
  • Perk Them Flat Lashes (DIY lash lift for the needy) - results are not guaranteed but damages might be ๐Ÿ˜‚
  • 30 Ps in 10 Ms (How to slap 30 products on your face in 10 mins so you can pretend you have your life together)
  • BYOF Lab (Bring Your Own Freckles)

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@jaaayp, those course titles definitely draw you in. ๐Ÿ˜… I feel like I could be the test subject for "Perk Them Flat Lashes" except that I don't have many lashes to begin with. Oh, and the potential damages bring out the scaredy cat in me. lol


I always marvel at @danielledanielle's threads - creative and my word nerd heart loves her use of literally devices and (of course) word choices โฃ๏ธ

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@itsfi @danielledanielle MARVEL is the right word.... my limited brain cells couldn't think of the word and my hands decided to scratch my head instead ๐Ÿ˜‚


I title is supposed to draw you in.. like a good book.. until you read the book and find out you've learned nothing LOL
