Hey all~ I decided to do another one of these tags, a beauty one today! This time I stole this from The Beauty Section! Be sure to check her one out too!
1 // Do you remember your first makeup item?
Honestly wouldn’t have a clue but I believe it would be a lip product!
2 // Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
Not too clumpy, haha. One that doesn’t dry too fast because I still cannot apply mascara properly! A small wand, something similar to Benefit’s Roller Lash! I am so lazy I don’t curl my lashes sometimes so that really does help. Also the thin/small wand helps when applying on the lower lash because as I said, I am still not good at applying it!!!!
3 // What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?
Medium coverage for me. Full coverage is too high maintenance for a sweaty person like me.
4 // Favourite high end brand?
I haven’t tried much high end brands to be honest but it also depends on what product because I actually don’t have a whole collection of something from a high end brand.
5 //What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
‘Laura Mercier, Hourglass, Kat Von D…’ – Same sister! Same! I think the one high end brand I want to try the most that I still haven’t yet would be Marc Jacobs! I have heard a lot about their stuff from their brushes to their eye liners etc.
6 // Favorite drugstore brand?
Maybelline, Rimmel, ELF, NYX, Sleek… I can’t choose one..
7 // Do you wear fake eyelashes?
Very rarely, even though I do love how they look. I wish I wore them more, so I get to practice putting it on more. Since I am still very beginner when it comes to putting on fake eyelashes.
8 // Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
Nope. I can leave the house bare face because lazy.
9 // What is your most cherished beauty product?
Would probably be the lip collection that I have. From liquid lipsticks to lipsticks to lip glosses etc, haha. I am kind of obsessed.
10 // How often do you shop for makeup? Do you like to pick up an item here and there or get lots of goodies at once?
Not often! I have so much stuff, of each product too. So I try not to pick up anything I already have or is very similar too e.g mascara.. and I do try not to buy anymore lipsticks… I’ve been told I have too many lip products for someone who only has one pair of lips (and doesn’t even wear lipsticks everyday).
11 // Do you have a “beauty budget” or you spend freely?
It really depends on my mood, my financial situation haha and the product really!
12 // Do you utilise coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
Don’t really have them type of stuff in the UK since we don’t have Sephora etc. But.. there is superdrugs… I have a membership card with them and yeah!
13 // What type of product do you buy the most of?
I think it’s obvious. Lip products.. or face products… Or glitter… definitely glitter I think….
14 // Is there a brand that you absolutely can’t stand?
I’m not 100% sure, I don’t think so.
15 // Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?
‘I actually don’t… maybe I should start!’ – Same sister, same.
16 // Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup?
Erm.. Duty free? Gotta love getting a few extra quid off ya make up eh. Then the lipstick section because like I have mentioned, I am obsessed..
17 // Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
I love trying new everything, unless I really really love something then I would repurchase a product but it was OK then I would try something new.
18 // Favourite bath and body brand?
Bath and body works? Just because we don’t have it in the UK! But a UK brand or more accessible in UK brand would be The Body Shop, if you haven’t seen my repurchased blog post, I talk about how much I love The Body Shop’s products!
19 // If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose?
Maybe MAC, they seem like a brand that has great all-rounder stuff. From their foundations right up to their lipsticks. I think for some brands it’s hard to get it all, or they’re more known for one category of makeup than the other.
20 // What brand do you think has the best packaging?
Hmmm. Tricky one in terms of style or travel friendly?! Haha, so many questions. I think NARS packaging is nice and chic and simple and travel friendly as well!
21 // Which celebrity always has great makeup?
Great make up collection or great make up on?! Collection Kylie Jenner’s new stuff seem amazing. I have only tried the liquid lipsticks. I have her gel liner but have only used it a few times, not enough to judge it. I have heard so many good things about her eyeshadow palettes though! Which I want to try soon!
22 // Do you belong to any online makeup communities?
23 // 5 Favorite Beauty Gurus
BubzBeauty, RemLife, SamanthaMaria, Ilikeweylie and KimThai!
24 // Do you like multifunctional products like lip and cheek stains?
I do! They’re super useful when you’re travelling and trying to keep your make up bag to a minimal.
25 // Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
26 // Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
Sometimes, most of the time it’s just cream or a face primer. I have yet to incorporate actual eyeshadow primer because lazy..
27 // How many hair products do you use on a typical day?
Depends! Usually one or two but if I am keeping my hair down I tend to wear a lot more since my hair is very big and frizzy. So I want to calm it down somehow, so I try to chuck on a lot of products..
28 // What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
‘Foundation, then concealer.’ – Same sister, same!
29 // Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?
‘Not really, I have learned a lot from YouTube for free.’ – Exactly this, haha. YouTube tutorials all the way!
30 // What do you love about makeup?
It may sound a little weird but I find putting on make up very peaceful and my way of meditation which I don’t do a lot outside putting on make up.
