I love beauty tags. It’s a great way to get to know other bloggers and writers. I have done a tag before when I was nominated for The Liebster Award. Here’s a more extensive tag – 20 beauty questions, answered.
Do you remember your first makeup item?
Of course! I didn’t have a lot of makeup growing up because I was never really into it as a teenager. My first makeup item was a cheap $1 roll on lip gloss in Cherry. I remember being in love with that product all the way until my first year of high school. I discovered other (better) products then.
Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
Finding the ‘perfect’ mascara is so difficult. Right now I’m using MAKE’s mascara in Black which works well on my lashes, but I’m still hunting for the ‘perfect’ one.
What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?
I like my foundation to be medium to light. I’m definitely not keen on heavy coverage foundations.
Favorite high end brand?
Growing up, I’ve never really seen my mom wear any makeup. If she did it was either from Estee Lauder or Shiseido, so those are still my favorite till this day.
What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
Too many! They are actually popular brands too – Make Up Forever, NARS and Too Faced just to name a few.
Favorite drugstore brand?
NYX cosmetics and Maybelline! Their products have never let me down.
Do you wear fake eyelashes?
I do, but mostly for special occasions. I enjoy spicing up any makeup look every once in a while.
Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
Nope! I go out in public all the time without makeup. Love not having to do anything with my face some mornings. I actually go to work 75% of the time with nothing on. #BareFace
What is your most cherished beauty product?
I absolutely love my Blush-n-Brighten blush from Laura Geller.
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?
On average, maybe once every two weeks. I consider that normal but my boyfriend complains all the time. I like to pick up an item here and there. I get too overwhelmed when I get too many goodies all at once. Beauty overload!
Do you have a “beauty budget” or you spend freely?
I definitely spend way too freely.
What type of product do you buy the most of?
I’m obsessed with lipsticks and anything lips related.
Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?
Yes! I started using lots of all natural products in 2014, so I am always conscious about ingredients in products.
Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?
The obvious suspects like Sephora and MAC. You can find me doing a lot of my shopping online too.
Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
I think I’ve recently become a product junkie. I switch it up every two months or so but will change it depending on what my skin needs.
Favorite bath and body brand?
Bath & Body Works and Lush. Their products smell so delicious.
Do you like multifunctional products like lip and cheek stains?
As much as I love products that can help speed up my makeup routine, I usually find those multifunctional products over hyped and pretty much useless.
Are you clumsy in putting makeup?
Would rather not admit it, but yes. Whatever, I still look good after a couple of trial and error battles with my mascara and eye shadow.
Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?
I would love to. Up till now, I’m 100% self taught and I would love to learn more about makeup.
What do you love about makeup?
I love how makeup makes me look polished. Makeup can transform your whole appearance. There are endless possibilities to look a bit different every single day!
