Get to know me - Beauty Edition

10 June 2014

Seeing as it's been quite a while since I've done a tag post, I thought I'd do a Get to know me beauty question tag. I tag all of you to do it too!

1. Do you apply your foundation with a brush, sponge, or fingers? 
Usually with a brush, but with the current foundation I'm using, they recommend to apply with fingers, which I find is working well. I will usually quickly buff the foundation in with a brush afterwards.

- What foundation do you use?
No7 Stay Perfect foundation in the colour Calico.

2. Do you apply your eye shadow from light to dark? or dark to light?
Light to dark. I think this would be much easier than dark to light as you'd have to try build your lighter tones on a darker base..

3. Do you prime your eyes? For Face?

4. Concealer first, or after foundation?
After. I find it gives me better coverage and it's easier to blend into the skin.

-  What concealer do you use?
The collection lasting perfection concealer

5. On average, how long does it take you to do your makeup?
If it's just everyday only about 15-20 minutes

6. Do you wear makeup everyday and everywhere?
I wear makeup most days to school but it's pretty minimal. Unless I'm going out I won't really put makeup on and even then only some concealer and mascara if I'm just going to the shops.

7. What release are you most excited about? (Makeup)
The NARSissist Cheek Kit which has just come out, but is about £30 at the moment! It has a bronzer, highlighter, and blush all in one and even includes a brush.

8. What’s your weakness? Shoes, purses, clothes, jewelry, eye shadow  lipstick or other?
Mostly lipsticks/balms/glosses. If I don't have one like it I will almost always buy it, and even if I have one similar, there's a good chance I'll think about buying it!

9. Do you whiten your teeth?
I use whitening toothpaste...does that count?

10. Wax eyebrows, or pluck?
Definitely wax, any day, waaay less painful.

11. What do you use to contour?
Any matte bronzer I have on hand.

12. False lashes, or natural?

13. Favorite makeup brand?
Trick question. Don't make me choose!

14. Liquid eyeliner, pencil or gel?
Liquid. I don't really use gel as I'm not too great with it, and I love the smooth, sleek look you get with a liquid liner.

15. Lipstick, lip-gloss or chap-stick?
Usually a chap-stick first in the morning and before I apply lip gloss. If I'm going out I may wear a lipstick and then a light lipgloss over the top.

- What is your favourite lipstick?
The Kate moss lipstick colour #110

16. Pigments, pressed or cream eye shadow?
Mainly pigments or pressed. I don't really use cream eye shadows and I like pressed shadows best as I find they're really nice to blend.

17. If you had to wear only one thing, excluding foundation; what would it be?

18. Favorite color?
Since I can't describe it, basically the colour of Tanya Burr's nail polish 'Little Duck'

19. Favorite color combination?
Dark and light blue, or green and yellow (big, bold, and exotic with eye makeup)

20. Natural? or Dramatic? (Eye Makeup)

21. Do you care more for quality or name brand?
Quality definitely. Even if it's a cheaper brand, I don't really care if it does a better job than the good stuff..

22. Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?
Maybe when I'm older as I'd love to do something like stage makeup!

23. What do you think of makeup?
It's great. It can completely change your look and gives so many people so much more confidence and can completely change a person's outlook on life.


24. How many times do you wash your face daily?
One a day (every night)

25. What skin type do you have?
Very dry

26. What is your current facial wash?
The nivea 3 in 1 cleansing water for sensitive skin.

27. Do you exfoliate?
Yes, once a week. I use the garnier expert exfoliator

28. What brand do you use?
Garnier or Nivea

29. What moisturizer do you use?
E45 intensive recovery moisturiser for very dry skin

30. Do you use eye cream?
No. At my age I don't really find I need it!

31. Do you enjoy using face masks? If so which one
I really like superdrug's own brand face masks, and they're super cheap at 99p each, and there's a load of different one's to choose from for each skin type.
