Tag¦ 40 Beauty Questions

Today I thought I'd do a tag because I think they're quite fun and they make you realise what you actually do and don't like.
So here we go, 40 beauty questions!


How many times do you wash your face daily?

Twice, in the morning and before I go to bed.

What skin type do you have?
I have dry skin that can be sensitive to fruit acids. I also have an oily nose but it's bearable.

What is your current facial wash?

I like the Simple Facial Wash and I like the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish.

Do you exfoliate?
Yes! All the dead skin cells build up quickly and it doesn't look nice.

What brand do you use?
I really like Ocean Salt by Lush. It gets rid of everything and leaves my skin feeling fresh, clean and soft.

What moisturiser do you use?

It depends how I feel and the state of my skin, if it's normal I will use The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream. If it's a little more oily then usual I can get a few spots so I will use the Simple Anti-Blemish Moisturiser, it's great for oil skin and acne prone skin. If my skin is quite dehydrated I will use the Simple Rich Moisturiser as it quickly puts the moisture back in my skin.

Do you have freckles?

Yes... I'm half Irish so what do you expect?

Do you use eye cream?
Well, it depends, I don't really because I don't think I need to. If I do I use the N-Spa Nourishing Eye & Lip Treatment. It's fantastic!

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
I had baby acne, now I only have a little break out here and there.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
I'm not too sure, I was a baby...


What foundation do you use?
At the moment I'm loving Rimmel Match Perfection, I normally mix it with my moisturiser. It's the only colour I have found that matches me properly.

How about concealer?
I don't always use it but when I do I use Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer.

Do you know your undertone colour?
I have a cool, neutral undertone.

What do you think of fake eye lashes?
I don't really like them but they look nice on other people. But to be honest the only time I wore them was at a fancy dress thing and they were feather eye lashes... I know, I know, don't kill me.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?


What brand of mascara do you use?

Depends how I'm feeling, I like the NO7 ones and the Benefit They're Real Lashes.
Sephora or MAC? 
The time I went to Sephora MAC was in there so surly I'd chose Sephora because nearly every brand is in there.

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
No, I wonder if I can get one because of my blog, I do photography too! I'm just looking for excuses.

What makeup tools do you use in make up application? 
Brushes, I also like the Cosmopolitan Beauty Blender. My fingers. Urmm... Cotton Pads. I can't think!

Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?

Yes. I like Painterly Paint Pot by MAC.

For the face?
Sometimes, I like the Smashbox ones.

What is your favourite eye shadow ?

WHY!? I like loads! I like a lot of the MAC ones that I bought lately in my previous post.

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
It depends how I feel I like pencil to be honest, but it depends what I want my eyeliner to look like.  

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?

I don't do it often if I'm going to be honest.

What do you think of pigment eye shadows?
I'd say... Why not!? I love Beguile by Illamasqua!

Do you use mineral makeup?

Not really.

What is your favourite lipstick?

My favourite MAC lipstick would be Pink Plaid or Plumful. 

How about lip gloss?

I don't really use it but I like MAC Boy Bait and I really like the MUA and Natural collection ones, they're just cheap and cheerful!

Do you buy your makeup on eBay?

Do you like drugstore makeup?
YES! I think you can get great things from there!

Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)

Yes, but you don't always get thinks that you would want or like.

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
Not really, I'm not too sure to be honest.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?

Yes... :(

Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Too much bronzer or blusher! Oh my life! And people buying the wrong shade of foundation.

Do you like colourful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?

I like a pop of colour on my eyes with a pinky nude lip.

Which celebrity always has great make up?
I love Demi Lovato's makeup!

If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item, what would you use?
Mascara probably or a lip colour.

Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes, I am who I am, if I look terrible without it who cares! It's how I was made.

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Every person looks beautiful no matter whether they have makeup on or not.

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I would choose MAC or Illamasqua!

What do you think of Makeup?

I think of it as an art, because it is. But I don't like it when young girls feel they have to wear it, because they don't.
