I saw this tag on Google the other day and thought it seemed quite interesting. There are a fair few lengthy questions so I’ll keep this intro brief. If you would like to answer these questions feel free to copy them.
1 // Do you remember your first makeup item?
My first makeup item was a lipgloss from Natural Collection and a Nivea Tinted Moisturiser. When I started getting into makeup more, I started wearing Clinique.
2 // Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
I like a mascara to lengthen my lashes. I can’t stand smudgy or too wet formulas. Probably my favourite formula has been the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara and the Lancome Monsieur Big. Both are fantastic and give me what I need out of a mascara.
3 // What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?
I prefer a medium coverage. I don’t like my foundation to feel like foundation; it has to feel like skin. One of my favourites has been the Bare Minerals Ready Foundation which can be built to the coverage you require. In my liquid formulas I love the Lancome Teint Miracle foundation. This gives a beautiful medium coverage finish.
4 // Favorite high end brand?
Without a doubt, my favourites are Bare Minerals, Urban Decay, Smashbox, Clinique and Lancome.
5 //What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
I really want to try things from Beauty Bakery. I actually want to try a few things from Indie brands. Maybe once my makeup collection dies down slightly, I’ll buy some more.
6 // Favorite drugstore brand?
I have a few; Rimmel, L’Oreal and Models Own. All have a fair few products that I love and trust.
7 // Do you wear fake eyelashes?
Nope. They feel so uncomfortable. I hate wearing them.
8 // Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
Mascara and lipstick. Since dating Mark, I’ve found that my skin looks pretty damn good, so I am actually leaving the house without foundation. I know…. shock horror!
9 // What is your most cherised beauty product?
This will come as no surprise, but I really cherish my Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette. I wonder why! This is so beautiful, and i am currently using this every other day. I love the formula so much!
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?
I am an addict. I buy at least one thing every month. I definitely have a problem!
11 // Do you have a “beauty budget” or you spend freely?
I don’t have a budget, but I really should have one.
12 // Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
I have quite a few store points cards and use these quite regularly to get discounts off my shopping. The Body Shop and Debenhams ones are fantastic.
13 // What type of product do you buy the most of?
Definitely eyeshadow and lipsticks. I love playing with eyeshadow, and to me, no shade is ever the same.
14 // Is there a brand that you absolutely can’t stand?
I really cannot say that I hate any brand. Each one has some products that I love and others that disappoint me. It’s just personal choice.
15 // Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?
Nope. I avoid products that tend to dry out the skin; usually if they’re advertised to help out oily skinned girls. I avoid these things like the plague.
16 // Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?
The Metro Centre. There are so many makeup shops here ranging from high end to drugstore. It’s a makeup lover’s paradise!
17 // Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
Nope. If I find something that I enjoy I use them religiously. I don’t change my skincare very often. hence why I hated the fact that the Body Shop discontinued the Hemp Face Protector for a little while. No the Vitamin C range is not the same!
18 // Favorite bath and body brand?
Lush. I recently introduced Mark to Bath Bombs and face masks. He quite enjoys both. I may need to buy some more soon! They smell lovely and always leave really pretty colours in the bath.
19 // If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose?
I hate questions like this! If I had to choose, I would pick Bare Minerals. The products are so beautiful and feel amazing on the skin. I just wish that they would reintroduce the Ready Foundation. It’s just so amazing!
20 // What brand do you think has the best packaging?
I love Urban Decay’s packaging. It looks so cool yet chic at the same time. I love the packaging for their blushers and foundations. It’s gorgeous!
21 // Which celebrity always has great makeup?
I absolutely love Emilia Clarke’s makeup. She always looks stunning and quite natural.
22 // Do you belong to any online makeup communities?
Apart from WordPress, no I don’t.
23 // 5 Favorite Beauty Gurus
Tati, Shelbey Wilson and Louise Pentland.
24 // Do you like multi-functional products like lip and cheek stains?
I actually don’t. I find that they’re either good for the lips or cheeks; never both.
25 // Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I don’t think so. I have my good and bad days like anybody else, but I quite like how i do my makeup.
26 // Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
It depends on the eyeshadow that I’m wearing.
27 // How many hair products do you use on a typical day?
Shampoo and Conditioner. That’s usually it. I’m not a big product user when it comes to my hair.
28 // What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
Foundation. Apart from my eyes, I don’t really need a lot of concealer.
29 // Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?
I’ve taken an online one, but I would love to attend a masterclass one day.
30 // What do you love about makeup?
I love it’s versatility. You can have so much fun with it and still feel like yourself. It has the power to give you confidence and the opportunity to play around with your looks. I simply love makeup!
Please let me know if you have a go at answering these questions, I would love to read your answers.
