Here’s the 30 Questions Beauty Tag that I was nominated for by the lovely Hollie from Beauty and The Bookshelves. If you’re into makeup and lifestyle blogs, give her a follow. I’ve seen this tag around and wanted to do it, so here goes.
1.) Do you remember your first makeup item?
No but it was probably a lip gloss from a magazine.
2.) Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
My perfect mascara would lengthen my lashes instantly whilst also providing volume. I don’t like mascaras that have a really wet formula or ones that just clump your lashes together when you apply more than one coat. I’m yet to find my holy grail mascara.
3.) What kind of coverage do you prefer from a foundation?
I prefer a full coverage usually.
4.) Favourite high-end brand?
I’d say MAC only because I own the most products from them but I want to branch out and use different ones.
5.) What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
Anastasia Beverley Hills I have yet to try but really want to.
6.) Favourite drugstore brand?
L’Oréal and NYX have never let me down and the products are such high quality but more on the affordable side.
7.) Do you wear fake eyelashes?
Very rarely as I’m hopeless at applying them and end up looking a hot mess. I am getting better so maybe I will wear them more in the future.
8.) Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
I need something on my eyes, even just a little bit of mascara or eyeliner makes me feel more confident.
9.) What is your most cherished beauty product?
My Chloe Perfume my mum brought me for Christmas.
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 prefer doing big hauls all at once because most sites you have a spend threshold for free shipping. It’s also really exciting unpacking lots of products at once. Also everything seems to run out at the same time.
11.) Do you have a “beauty budget” or you spend freely?
I’m trying to be more conscious of where my money’s going but will treat myself now and again.
12.) Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
If a store emails me with a discount I hop straight onto their site and make a purchase just because it’s on sale. I also collect points with different stores and when I have a lot will use them to pick something up.
13.) What type of product do you buy the most of?
I go through lip liners and Micellar Water so quickly.
14.) Is there a brand that you absolutely can’t stand?
There’s not any brands I hate but some I avoid buying from like Jeffree Star for example.
15.) Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?
No if a product works and doesn’t cause a reaction, I’ll use it.
16.) Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup?
I prefer to shop somewhere that stocks a lot of different brands from cheap to high end. My makeup collection is made up of a range of price points and that’s how I like to shop. There’s not one store that stands out as my ultimate favourite though.
17.) Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
I love trying new products, I can’t stick to them same stuff as I get bored.
18) Favourite bath and body brand?
I’m really enjoying Soap & Glory at the moment.
19) If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose?
L’Oreal because it ticks all the boxes: beautiful packaging, affordable and high quality.
20) What brand do you think has the best packaging?
I love Tarte Cosmetics packaging, it’s so fun and glamorous.
21.) Which celebrity always has great makeup?
Kylie Jenner and her sister Kim Kardashian are the first celebs that come to mind. They always look impeccable (whether that be thanks to their makeup artist or their own skills). Brookelle Mckenzie always looks amazing and is a makeup artist that I follow on Instagram.
22.) Do you belong to any online makeup communities?
I guess I belong to the beauty blogger community and I also participate on Influencer.
23.) 5 Favorite Beauty Gurus?
I tend to watch people who have a mixed content so I don’t follow that many “Beauty Gurus” but I like Chloe Boucher, Shaaanxo, In The Frow and Stephanie Toms.
24.) Do you like multifunctional products like lip and cheek stains?
I guess but I’m not too fussed about them.
25.) Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I’m clumsy full stop. If I rush I make more mistakes so I like to take my time.
26.) Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
No I sometimes use concealer though to cover the veins on my eyelids and to make my eyeshadows brighter.
27.) How many hair products do you use on a typical day?
I don’t use many hair products but when I dry my hair I use a heat protection spray.
28.) What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
A colour correcting concealer, then foundation and then a regular concealer.
29.) Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?
I’ve considered it but I’m shy and awkward.
30.) What do you love about makeup?
I love sitting in front of the mirror creating a different look and transforming myself.
