Happy Friday Everyone!
This week seems like it has gone by so slowly but that might just be because I’m gearing myself up for another weekend in NYC next weekend! I was browsing around the internet as I do and came across this makeup tag. I personally love knowing people’s makeup routines and have found myself on multiple occasions asking people what theirs are in the most random of situations. Needless to say when I found this tag I felt the immediate need to post my own.
How many times do you wash your face daily?
Two times a day, once in the morning with just water and then once at night during my shower with face wash or soap.
What skin type do you have? (dry, oily or combination)
I think I have pretty average skin with drier patches during the winter and a more oily T-zone in the summer.
What is your current facial wash?
Do you exfoliate?
What moisturiser do you use?
Do you have freckles?
No put I wish I did! I think freckles are gorgeous.
Do you use eye cream?
Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
I’m really lucky as I never had particularly acne prone skin and I still do not.
Did you ever use ProActiv?
No I did not.
What foundation do you use?
I actually don’t wear foundation as I don’t like the feel of it on my skin but I do use the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
in Groenland if I’m feeling more splotchy on any given day. It’s super light weight and as I’ve mentioned in previous post, leaves my skin feeling really moisturized and healthy throughout the day.
How about concealer?
Do you know your undertone colour?
Still figuring that out but I’ll let you know when I do! I’m pretty sure I have neutral if not warm undertones.
What do you think of fake eyelashes?
For special nights definitely! Too bad I can’t apply them for my life.
Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, but I run through a tube way sooner than that so that’s never an issue for me.
What brand of mascara do you use?
Maybelline all the way. Right now I’m using their Lash Sensational
formula and refuse to wear anything else.
Sephora or Mac?
I’m gonna have to say Sephora even though Mac is my favorite lip stick brand. Sephora just has more brands and makeup in general.
Do you have a MAC Pro-Card?
No I don’t
What make-up tools do you use in make-up application?
I use the Sephora Classic Mini Multitasker Brush
for concealer (no that’s not what you’re supposed to use it for but yeah) and just a random mish mash of other brush brands for everything else.
Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Sometimes I use the Too Faced Shadow Insurance
in Champagne when I know it’s going to be a long day/night and I won’t have time to touch up my eyes.
For the face?
I probably should but no.
What is your favourite eye shadow? (Colour or Shade)
Oh goodness I really don’t know. Most recently I’ve been loving the shades Lt. Bronze for an all over shade and Pewter for a slight crease from my LORAC PRO Palette
. The shadow is so fine and soft and stays on all day the colors themselves are gorgeous.
Do you use pencil or liquid eye-liner?
Both. I use a liquid liner for my top lash line and a pencil for the bottom.
How often do you poke your eyes with an eye liner pencil?
Not often! Woo!
What do you think of pigment eye shadows?
Never tried them. The word “pigment” scares me.
Do you use mineral make-up?
No but I’d try it!
What is your favorite lipstick?
Probably the one I reach for most which is my perfect nude, Kinda Sexy
How about lip gloss?
I don’t wear lip gloss cause I really don’t like the feeling of sticky lips and so I usually just end up licking it off. Hope it’s not toxic..
What is your favourite blush?
Do you buy make-up on e-bay?
I really don’t buy anything on e-bay so no.
Do you like drug store make-up?
Yes! Really like Maybelline and Rimmel products.
Do you go to CCO’s? (Cosmetic Company Outlets)
Honestly had never heard of them before reading this so I’m guessing we don’t have any near me but if we did I would be there in a hot sec.
Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
No, I like experimenting on my own and watching Youtube. Does that count?
Are you clumsy in putting on make-up?
Some things (Bronzer, blush) yes, but others (eyeshadow, concealer) no.
Name a make-up crime that you hate?
When people only but eyeliner on their bottom lashes and it looks really uneven. Top lash line should always be equal or greater to the bottom lash line.
Do you like colorful shades of make-up (lipstick, eye shadow) or neutral tones?
I like a bold lip but for everything else I prefer neutral tones.
Which celebrity always has great make-up?
Jennifer Aniston and Emma Watson. Their makeup always looks so natural and used in a way to enhance their natural beauty and features.
If you could leave the house with just ONE Make-up item, what would you use?
Mascara. If there’s one thing I put on everyday it’s mascara.
Could you ever leave the house without any make-up on?
Do you think you look good even without any make-up on?
I don’t think makeup makes the difference between someone looking good and bad because I personally believe it should only be used to enhance one’s natural features and not cover up and create them. I’m confident in myself without makeup on and I think that confidence makes a person a lot more beautiful than makeup ever can. So I don’t know if other people feel I look good, but I feel good about how I look.
In your opinion, what is the BEST make-up line?
Mmmm Nars. They have multiple claim to fame products that are really high quality and have become staples in my collection.
What do you think of Make-up?
I think that applying makeup is a creative way to have fun and highlight the features of ones face in a way that can increase self-confidence.
Hope you enjoyed and have a great weekend!
