Fashionable, trendy and kicks it to her own beat. Miss Duffy Dossier (Alex Duffy) is a Chicago friend, partner in crime and inspiration to all. Owner and curator of Social Media & Co,  she's doing what she loves & teaching the power of social media while looking effortlessly chic along the way. I jumped at the chance to pick her brain and find out more about her beauty regime because we all know I have a slight beauty addiction. 

 What’s your current obsession?

I'm passionate about growth in my business right now. I think it's because I know I'm learning, and I'm really happy about that. Also - I'd really like to make those millions soon ;-) Other obessions: Criminal Minds.

What are the current contents of your makeup bag? 

Carmindy Beauty primer, Hourglass Immaculate foundation in Natural, Benefit Bo-ing #01 cover up, NARS lipstick in a deep red & purple, NARS eye liner in Via Veneto, MAC eye shadows in embark and naked lunch

Are any of your holy grail products that can always be found in your bag? If so, what are they and what makes them so essential?

Cover up! Because (when I'm not breaking out at this capacity), I'm usually a gal who has a blemish or red spot to be covering up.

How would you describe your makeup style? 

Basic, yet confused - yet yearns to learn.

Do you feel your makeup style correlates with your fashion sense?

No, but I'd like it to. I always feel like it's 90% on it's way (when I actually try my best to do it right)

Are there any makeup techniques you wish to master?

I'd like to perfect my brow shaping, also some contouring lessons wouldn't hurt.

Why do you like your current beauty regime and what does it entail? Just give a short overview of products and techniques you use.

Face wash in the morning with foam cleanser, MAD skincare (acne edition) in the evening. Both with my hand scrubby.  (Found the charger to my clarisonic!! so I'll start using that in the evening). If I have nothing to do that day, I won't put any make up on.

 Are you looking to add anything or do you feel like something is currently missing from your beauty regime? 

I feel like I need a solid routine.

 What does beauty mean to you? Define it in your own terms from your own unique perspective. The key is to be as specific as you can.

Beauty means happiness, satisfaction with yourself and a reflection of how you feel on the inside as it expresses itself on the outside.

Do you have any bonus tips you would like to pass-on or share? It can be related to anything, whether it's beauty, fashion, business, personal, well-being, etc.

Be Yo-Self (it's hard sometimes!!)... I'm almost telling myself that, as a tip, more than anything - loll

Lastly, I wanted to give a big ass thank you to Alex for participating. You can find this mega-babe on instagram @duffydossier
