Calling All Q's!!

Okay. That's it. I can only make up so many questions one my own.

And by that I mean all two of the questions I made up. That's right. Two. Count 'em. One. Two. It's not as easy as you may think.

I would like to make "Ask Capitol Hill Barbie" a more regular feature here so here is the directive:

Bring it on.

Email me any questions you may have about beauty, fashion, life in DC, life on the Hill, how beauty and fashion may be affected by upcoming Congressional races, whatever your little hearts desire.

Gimme some Q's, and I promise some A's.

From a fellow government lady in Florida I have a question for you... what is the worst fashion faux pau you have seen on The Hill. One that just made you pause and say, "oh.my.god."

Just curious :o)

And I spelled "faux pax" wrong... oops!

I am going to be graduating in May with a Fashion degree. My real passion is the beauty industry. Any good places around D.C for a new graduate to find work?
Plus, have you tried any Bare Minerals products? They are amazing. Never again will I wear liquid foundation again! ;)

Hello! So I have a few questions. First: I recently bought the bareminerals intro set thing (I had already used just the foundation) and it came with this eye brightener. I feel like the powder brings out the tiny bumps in the skin under my eyes (creating a weird almost goosebumps-like effect). Do you think this may be because of the lack of moisture? I have very fair skin and a little bit of darkness under my eyes with some puffiness too. Most undereye concealers seem to be really yellowy, including bareminerals, which I'm not sure works so great on fair skin. Any better suggestions on how to remedy this?
Second: How much do you think a quality shampoo and conditioner matter? I was recently talked into a $20 (tiny!) bottle of shampoo at my salon and although it has worked great so far, I'm skeptical of whether it is worth the price. Sorry that was so long, but thanks!

Totally not related to your post but thanks so much for adding me to your blog roll!

And away you go! Congrats on the influx of questions...one more...recommendations on stay-put, non-drying, but not-sliding under eye concealer for a super fair redhead? I've just bought E.L. (see my revelations about the Old Lady Line in my In the Mood review), but just curious if you've found anything else out there.

I'm dying to know: What's the best product I can use to "fill in" my eyebrows without making them look drawn on? I have very thin eyebrows, light brown, and currently just use pencil. Is there a better way? The pencil wears off, and looks fake.

Whenever I put on mascara, no matter what brand or kind it is, I always end up getting some on my eyelids. I have some pretty lengthy eyelashes and I didn't know if this is something that could be helped or not. Assistance, please?

How about putting your email address in your "mailto:" - no wonder you're not getting questions!

You would think I should, huh? Fixing the problem as we speak! I'm a little slow on the uptake with the techie stuff!

As for everyone else, thank you for the questions! I'm working on getting you some answers pronto.

GREAT blog. I'm a Capitol Hill staffer as well, and am wondering about your recommendations for some creative but appropriate work outfits. I'm tired of the same skirt, fitted jacket and heels look. We are a no-jeans office, (even in recess) so I'd love your in and out of session suggestions!

Any suggestions for a great moisturizer for combination skin? My favorite so far has been a kind by aveda...but I feel like I can do better!

Okay, no questions at the moment, but I do have an answer for Jen a la eyebrows: Trish McEvoy No. 19 brush (it's short and stubby) and Trish black (yes, black) eyeshadow (if you're a brunette). Wet the brush, and use very sparingly, and I swear, it totally works.

Except when you forget and rub your eyebrows and get a black streak up your forehead. Then it's not so cool.

an answer for the girl who wants to go into the beauty industry. I graduated last may with a degree in marketing and my focus was going in the fashion/beauty industry. There is nothing and i mean NOTHING in DC. If your looking to go where the action is: New York. Your possibilities there will be endless. You could also try LA. Look for companies who actually make the products, sell the products, or the beauty dept. at a magazine, you will be a guinea pig either way. P.S. I believe sephora is in San Fran.
