BEAUTY TAG Q&A
Thank you to the beautiful Sonja from SIMPLESTYLINGS for tagging me!
This is for you xxx
Here are my Beauty Tag answers:
Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners and lip product or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?
In true honesty, if I really had to choose I’d have to lost my palettes and eye shadows… I can go out without eyeshadow on, but I can’t seem to live without my mascara, and definitely need some form of a lip product too!
Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
ALL MY HAIR? I reckon, cut it off? At least it’ll grow back healthy and untreated, and it can grow back, right? Providing it can grow back that’s what I’d pick, and I could also donate my hair that’s been cut off!
If you had $500, would you spend it on clothes or make up?
I think I’d rather spend it on clothes, or skin care, but definitely not make up.
Would you rather only use one eye-shadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?
Probably one lip colour, I don’t like just using one eyeshadow, I need choices, I need variety, I need different colours!
Bright nails or nude nails all year round?
Nude nails, definitely…
Would you rather never be able to use lipgloss or paint your nails again?
This one’s hard, but if I don’t have lipgloss, I still have lip lacquers, lip sticks and lip balms right? So I would need to paint my nails again.
Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one?
I don’t know how many more times I can say this… My favourite mascara and this is one of the main beauty products I just cannot live without is : Heroine Make’s Mascara, any of them to be honest.
What's your ideal coverage foundation?
This completely depends on the occasion and what time of day it is, I like lighter coverage foundations for the day, so maybe Chanel’s Perfection Lumiere or Vitalumiere, or maybe a mix of the 2 and then night time would probably be something fuller, Estee Lauder’s Double Wear?
Favourite drugstore beauty brand?
I’ll stick to the brands we can get at UK drugstores: I could tell you the exact products, because these are actually my run to items!
Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder & Natural Bronzer, I’ve been using these for YEARS… Another one would be Bourjois, I really like their eyeshadows and nail polishes, talking of nail polishes, Barry M’s another brand I like and of course, Essie (if that counts as a drugstore brand).
Favourite high-end beauty brand?
I don’t know if I could pick a favourite!!! If it’s make up, maybe Chanel, Shu Uemura for eyelash curlers and oil cleansers, if it’s skincare in general, it’d have to be Sampar and Swiss Perfection (As you may know already, I am so in love with these 2 brands).
Is there any makeup you can't leave the house without wearing?
Some kind of a make up base, whether it be foundation or a tinted moisturiser, mascara, some form of a lip product, and my eyebrows, I have to do my eyebrows, but I just use eyeshadow, so it’s ok…
What is your most cherished beauty product?
I think I cherish every item… But the one I probably care about a little too much would be that dreaded mascara, WHY AM I SO IN LOVE WITH YOU?
What skin type do you have?
I’d like to say it’s normal, but then maybe it gets dry sometimes, and maybe a little oily? Combination then, I guess.
Do you always use the same skin routine or do you like switching it up?
I can’t say I “switch it up” but I definitely don’t use one singular routine. I think I wrote about my skincare routine in a blog post (SKINCARE ROUTINE w/CLARISONIC), I have about 3 skincare routines, I use one each day, one after another, and I’ve been doing the same thing for a long time now, I don’t see it changing any time soon. Although, the products may not stay the same…
Top 5 beauty gurus?
If you could only buy one make up brand forever, which would you buy?
I don’t actually think I can answer this question, just because there isn’t that one brand where I like enough products to make my face, haha.
Which brand has your favourite packaging?
This would probably have to be YSL, I love the GOLD GOLD GOLD!
Which do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
I hardly ever use concealer, but when I do I apply that first.
Name a make up crime you hate.
Foundation on eyebrows and no eyebrows, when I say no eyebrows, I mean when the person has not bothered to add colour back to their eyebrows.
Blush or bronzer?
Lipgloss or lipstick?
If those lip stains and lip lacquers count as lipgloss, then lipgloss…
Foundation or concealer?
Brushes or sponges?
I think brushes, just because you can use them for a lot more things, I swear sponges seem to just work for face make up.
OPI or Essie?
This is a bad, bad question! I really like both, but I think I prefer the Essie brush, so maybe Essie? Oh, I really don’t know!
Lotion or body butter?
I actually prefer oils… but out of these 2, probably lotion!
I tag everyone to do this, if you have a beauty blog, or any blog, do it! If you don't have one, you can always tell me your answers below, or just let me know what you think of my answers!
Have a nice day xxx
