Beauty tag

Wednesday, 19 December 2012

Hello everyone, hope your all ok. I haven't done a tag for ages and since I'm on my phone I thought it would be easy to do from my phone, I will begin...

How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice a day, morning and night. I have a big fear of not washing my make up off before I sleep, I seriously can't sleep unless I have taken it off haha.

What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
Oily and dry, it's annoying.

What is your current facial wash?
Clean & Clear Exfoliating Facial wash in the morning and Soap & Glory Scrub Your Nose In It at night

Do you exfoliate?

What brand do you use?
St. Ives once a week

What moisturizer do you use?

Do you have freckles?

Do you use eye cream?
I don't, I've tried a few but don't get on with them. I have very sensitive eyes so I often react.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Yes very acne prone skin, the slightest change I will come out like a dot to dot picture.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
I haven't, I have always wanted to but it's a lot for something that might not work for me.

What foundation do you use?
Revlon ColorStay for oily/combination skin which I reviewed in my last post.

How about concealer?
The well known Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer.

Do you know your undertone color?
No I don't, I looked in the mirror but I can't tell, yellow more than pink though.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I love them and wear them whenever I go out somewhere important.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, I normally use them up before the 3 months anyway.

What brand of mascara do you use?
L'oreal and Benefit.

Sephora or MAC?
I've never tried Sephora as I live in the UK so it will have to be MAC.

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
No :(

What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Brushes, sponges and eye lash curlers

Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Yes, Urban Decay Primer Potion or Benefit Stay Don't Stray.

For the face?
Yes, Benefit Porefessional which I absolutely love.

What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
Urban Decay Sin, one of my most used

Do you use pencil or liquid liner?
I use pen liner or gel liner so neither, I find pencil doesn't last

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Not often actually, I'm a lot better at applying it now.

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I love them, however I hardly use them because they are so messy and hard to work with.

Do you use mineral makeup?
Nope, never had and its not on my list of things as I'm happy with my routine

What is your favorite lipstick?
Revlon Mauve It Over

How about lipgloss?
I don't really wear it, my favourite would be any Barry M one if I had to choose

What is your favorite blush to use?
Sleek Blush in Pink Ice (the middle one in the blush by 3 palette)

Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
No, I did once and it's fake. What a suprise

Do you like drugstore makeup?
Yeah I love it, 90% of my make up is drugstore

Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
I've never been to one, I don't think there's one near me (Kent) anyone know one? Haha.

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I have but I'm to nervous to do anything like that.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
No, I don't think so.

Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Too much blush, why do some people literally pile it on? I saw a lady once who had loads of really dark pink on and she had pale skimpy it just wasn't good.

Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
Colourful! I love to have a bright and bold make up look.

Which celebrity always has great make up?
Cher Lloyd, always looks flawless

If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item, what would you use?
I would always say foundation but lately mascara as its so important for me.

Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
I did on Sunday! I shocked myself, I had stayed at Harry's and just didn't have the effort to do it. I was in the car so no one saw me luckily.

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
No, I feel so much more secure with make up on, without it I feel naked.

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
Benefit if I have the cash to slash or Revlon for middle budget and MUA if I don't have much money.

What do you think of Makeup??
I love it, it makes me feel like a whole other person. It also is what brought me to blogs, without it I wouldn't be writing this post now.

Hope you enjoyed it, sorry its such a long post I was going to do it in two posts but I thought I'd cram it into one.

I added some pictures of my new pink hair so I hope they're attached, haha. Speak to you all soon!
