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

Aww, thanks @itsfi & @jaaayp 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@jaaayp Hey my kind of classes!

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

LOL @Samtian I like to think that my classes are for everyday girls who really like to breeze through life 😂

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

( No, I’m just still studying for it I think @jaaayp ! Maybe the clown class would be more apropos some days! 🥹

You’re so clever. Love your ideas! )

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

I think we need to see some applicable photos @Sunnysmom 😂😂😂😂

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

🤣 NO one’s ready for that @jaaayp ! You’re gonna have to trust me I think! I’m the worst at pics! Lol. 😭

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

I can say the same!!! @Sunnysmom or sometimes you look at the mirror and you're like oooh I look good and then you take a picture and you just see large pores and textures and your (my) little mustache!

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

NOT likely ever for yours @jaaayp ! 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@itsfi, you can't tag and not answer 😂


Also curious if @LexBT @AlexBT @GeorginaBT @CarolBT would want to chime in

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Okay @danielledanielle, I think I've come up with something here ... 💡


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


📚  Sheet Masks Around The World: A Comparative Study   

Ideally, this would include a tour of facility to see how sheet masks are made.(And yes, I would want to teach this class because I feel like my preparation for it would necessarily involve trips to different parts of the world to compare sheet masks, how they are made, etc.)


📷  Flat Lays: How to Set Up a Flat Lay Using Everyday Things Around The House  

In my mind, I see this as an interactive, seminar style class - a very small group (at least to begin with), with a couple of guest lecturers during the quarter / trimester / semester. This session includes lab work. 🔬



Your Sephora Doctorate is in ________


Ummmm, I'll need to get some guidance from my Academic Advisor to map this one out. 🤔 I suggest we discuss it  while shopping. 🛍 It may take multiple shopping trips for me to figure out a good fit here. 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

I’d def love  to go to your flat lay class @itsfi ! 💞

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Yes to the flat lays class @itsfi ! I think we're all in agreement that's definitely your field.


Also, 🙋🏾‍♀️I will humbly act as your advisor when you're in town since you have elected shopping as a part of your practicum.

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@danielledanielle, I feel like shopping is one of those things where practice makes perfect so we should always keep trying (says the one currently on a no buy) 😆 We can grab coffee before or after shopping, because the art and science of coffee is also something with exploring. 😉 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Ahh I love this @danielledanielle! And want to register for all your classes. Like @itsfi, I too feel like I would be more of a student than a teacher. 😂


Maybe... "The Art of Hair Straightening: How to Do It Right." I've done flat irons, chemical straightening, blow-drying, Airstraight-ing (turning that into a verb, Dyson!), etc. I've gone from black to blonde (with breakage) and back and have lived to tell the tale! I've definitely learned the hard way about taking care of my hair - but I guess that's how you really learn. 😅

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@GeorginaBT, hair is decently the school of hard knocks 😉


I'd be glad to be in your class

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Lol. I knew I’d get caught. 😂🤣😂 I’m thinking, I’m thinking … 🤔 I feel like I’d make a better student. Or, maybe a guest lecturer? Okay, I’ll noodle on this more @danielledanielle.

💯 curious on what each of our fabulous @TeamBIC  beauties would say. Chime in, chime in! And our ambassadors. 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Please make pm me, @itsfi 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@danielledanielle this is a fun one

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Thank you @CorgiMommy , I'm loving your answers and curious about any future responses
