The Beauty Tag

3/28/2016



Hey Guys, I hope that you have all had a wonderful easter! Today I have decided to do a fun post that allows you to get to know my 'beauty' preferences better. I have 30 questions that I am going to answer this is anything regarding my beauty favourites, places I like shopping and my most used products. (All products mentioned have a link to purchase!)


1. Do you remember your first make up item?
I honestly would never be able to remember my first ever make up item. I'm guessing it was either something free in Shout magazine or a little lip gloss set!

2. Describe your favourite mascara?
I have trouble finding a mascara that doesn't fall under my eyes throughout the day. In the last year I have come across two mascaras that work for me. Conveniently one of them is high end and the other is drug store. The high end mascara is the one I am currently using and this is the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara. This mascara gives you amazing volume lasting all day. My other favourite mascara is the Max Factor Wild Mega Volume Mascara. This mascara lasted me a life time and it's such a good price for Max Factor. My favourite thing about this mascara is the quality and shape of the brush. 

3. What kind of coverage do you like in a foundation?
I personally like a full coverage foundation. For a semi-matte finish definitely the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. For a sheer full coverage foundation the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

4. Favourite high end brand?
Estee Lauder or Mac

5. What cosmetic brand do you want to try that you haven't yet?
I want to try a few Laura Mercier and some Kat Von D products. 

6. Favourite drug store brand?
I love the Makeup Revolution palettes & some MUA/Sleek products. Hard to choose but Rimmel and Maybelline are definitely brands I enjoy. 

7. Do you wear fake eyelashes?
Yes, everyday almost. My favourite lashes I have worn daily for months are the Eyelure Lashes No. 143. I have recently been wearing the Eyelure Lahes No. 141 and love these ones too when they are in stock!

8. Is there any kind of makeup that you can't leave the house without?
I do like to have make up on when I leave the house. I'd at least have a base on but nothing else to pop out. 

9. What is your most cherished product?
This is a tough one it would have to be between my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation or my Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

10. How often do you shop for make up?
If I'm being good I can go a week without finding new products I want to try. On a bad week it could be up to 3 times a week I find myself at those make up counters without meaning to and I will somehow always find a new product I don't own. 

11. Do you have a beauty budget or do you spend freely?
I wouldn't say I had a budget necessarily but I'm sensible. 

12. Do you use vouchers, beauty reward cards or sale when you shop for makeup?
I always use my boots advantage card to build up the points so I can eventually treat myself for free or my loved ones. If somethings on sale then that's just even better!

13. What product do you buy the most of?
I re-buy Rimmel by Kate Moss lipstick No. 43 without fail overtime it runs out. 

14. Is there a brand you can't stand?
I'm open to any make up brand when it comes to testing out makeup. 

15. Do you ever avoid certain ingredients in make up products?
In all honesty I never look at the ingredients, maybe I should start!

16. Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup?
I go everywhere really. Boots, Superdrug, John Lewis, Debenhams. When I know a products and I'm just re purchasing sometimes I find products cheaper on allbeauty.com or feel unique.com.

17. Do you like trying new skincare products or do you stick to the same routine?
I always love to look at what skincare products are out there and to see if theres anything new I can try. I don't have a set routine. It always depends what mood I'm in. 

18. Favourite bath/body brand?
The Body Shop

19. If you could buy from one brand who would it be?
Definitely Estee Lauder, I already use their mascara, foundation and eyeliners/lipliners. I trust this brand so much. 

20. What brand do you think has the best packaging?
With an exception to the Louboutin lipsticks it will have to be NARS packaging for me. It's so sleek and simple. 

21. Which celebrity always has great make up?
I find Olivia Culpo's make up always gorgeous

22. Do you belong to any online beauty communities?
Not that I know of!

23. 5 favourite beauty gurus?
Huda Beauty, Jaclyn Hill, Carli Bybel, InTheFrow,  Danielle Mansuitti.

24. Do you like any multifunctional products like lip tints or cheek stains?
It all honestly I have never been a fan or gone out to buy these products.

25. Are you clumsy with putting on make up?
I like to think not but I probably am sometimes when I'm in a rush. When i'm not in a rush I take care in trying to make it look perfect for me.

26. Do you use a primer for your eyes?
I tend to just place my concealer on my eyelids.

27. How many hair products do you use?
I'm terrible with my hair really. It's not something I am interested in as much as my skincare and beauty products. I wear hair extensions on a daily basis and occasionally do hair masks and use smoothing serums depending on my desired look. 

28. What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
I always apply foundation first as I use my concealer to brighten up my face, rather than cover up imperfections. 

29. Do you ever consider taking a make up class?
I would love to. I know I would learn so much stuff, I just never got round to it. 

30. What do you love about make up?
I love how many different products are out there to experiment in. Make up is a fun way to create yourself and express your love for experimenting with different looks. I think it'd amazing that you can change your whole look just by changing what lip colour you wear. If make up makes you feel good then wear it and try new things, don't be afraid of it cause in the comfort of your own home you can just wipe it off and experiment some more!

I hope you enjoyed this style of post to get to know me and my favourite make up pieces. I hope you found something that you want to try out! I tag anyone that wants to have a go at answering these, make sure to leave me a link so I can check out your answers!
