40 Beauty Question Tag

The other day I saw this tag post and I thought it was a great idea to learn other people’s beauty and skin care routines. So I decided to do it.
It’s going to be a very long, long post and for that I apologize but I really hope you enjoy it and stick it out to the end.


How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice – I wash my face before I go to sleep and after I wake up.

What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
I have oily to combination skin. I am often very oily in my T-zone and this is where I suffer from acne.

What is your current facial wash?
Honestly I don’t have a set one I have differnet face washs in each house and in my house in the UK I have a different face wash in either bathroom, I’m a little face wash crazy if I’m honest.

Do you exfoliate?
Yes. But I don’t exfoliate as often as most people.

What brand do you use?
I don’t use a specific product but I exfoliate using my magnitone pulsar, it’s the new love of my life.

What moisturizer do you use?
Clarins Hydra-Matte Lotion for combination skin.

Do you have freckles?
Yes and I absolutely love them. They are especially visible in summer.

Do you use eye cream?
Nope, I absolutely hate it and feel like it makes everyone’s eyes puffy.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
I never had acne problems growing up. But I do have occasional minor breakouts from lack of sleep or anxiety.

Did you ever have to use Pro-active?
Nope and the adds drive me absolutely insane I always change the channel.


What foundation do you use?
I use  a mix of different foundations but my all-time favourite and go to foundation is MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation I absolutely love it.

How about concealer?
MAC select cover-up in NC 15.

Do you know your undertone colour?
Yes, my undertone colour is pink although a few people have tried to tell me it’s yellow but it’s really not.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
They are beautiful. I personally have quite large collection of lashes.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes. But this never happens for me, I always keep my mascaras for so long (shame on me).

What brand of mascara do you use?
Again I use so many different mascaras but my favourite would have to be Benefit They’re Real.

Sephora or MAC?
Both. I love Sephora but as most of you may know I am MAC obsessed.

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
No not yet, but my application is in the post so I should receive it soon.

What makeup tools do you use in make-up application?
My fingers and countless brushes, mainly Real Technique and MAC (surprise, surprise)

Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Yes. Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion.

For the face?
Yes.  I use Benefit porefesional.

What is your favourite eye shadow (colour or shade)?
Nylon by MAC.

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
I use pencil and gel eyeliner. I feel liquid eyeliner can be too harsh and harder to control.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Ouch! Thank God I never do. Just be very careful when you apply them. It is your eyes you are dealing with.

What do you think of pigment eye shadows?
I like them for dramatic effects.

Do you use mineral makeup?
No I love full heavy coverage and I just don’t feel like mineral makeup gives me that.

What is your favourite lipstick?
It changes from time to time. However I have to say, the lipstick that cannot go wrong is MAC Hue.

How about lip gloss?
Honestly this changes every day.

What is your favourite blush to use?
Well Dressed by MAC.

Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
No never. For purchasing cosmetics, I don’t feel secure unless I see the real thing. I need to make a purchasing decision based on the swatches.

Do you like drugstore makeup?
I absolutely love drugstore makeup

Do you go to CCO’s? (Cosmetic company outlets)
No to be honest I’d never even heard of them before reading this tag.

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
Yes I am already a qualified MUA and I am currently studying in Brushstrokes academy in Sheperton Studios.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I think everybody is if you’re in a rush, so I always make sure I have extra time in hand to get ready before I step out of the house.

Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Foundation lines, please just blend it in.

Do you like colourful shades of makeup (lipstick, eye shadow) or neutral ones?
I like neutrals for most of the time. When I am going almost nude on my eyes, I like to have brighter lips to balance out the colours on my face.

Which celebrity always has great make up?
I am inspired by many looks and blend the elements together to create my own look.

If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item, what would you use?
Eye shadow to fill my eye brows: this will define the entire face and give it structure.

Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
In fact I do that a lot. I only apply makeup when I need to.

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I am happy with how I look without any makeup, but I know I look better with some on.

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
MAC (surprise, surprise). They provide such substantial lines of shades and textures for face, lips and eyes. Honestly I just can’t get enough of MAC.

What do you think of Makeup?

For me make up is everything, it’s my love, my career and I like to think my life, I don’t think I could live without my makeup. I use makeup to enhance my features, not to change anything I already have.
