Today I thought I'd do a beauty tag as I haven't done one in a while and I think you get to know more about the reader.
I saw this tag on Georgia's (Sweet Little Things) blog and thought i would do it too.. here goes!
001. Do you apply your foundation with a brush, sponge or your fingers?
I use a brush, normally either the real techniques buffing brush or the foundation brush that comes in the core collection!
002. Do you apply your eyeshadow from light to dark, or dark to light?
I don't really wear much eyeshadow but if i do it would be from light to dark!
003. Do you prime your eyes?
Again, I don't wear eyeshadow a lot so i've never really invested in a eye primer but it could be a thing i look in to. I find the longevity of eyeshadows depends on what eyeshadows i am using.
004. Do you conceal first or after your foundation?
Normally after so I can see what blemishes/discolouration hasn't been covered by my foundation.
005. Do you go to the salon for manicures or manicure yourself?
I've never had a manicure! Ha ha! Unless those home kits count?
006. Do you exfoliate your lips, face or both?
I am currently searching for a gentle face exfoliator, so if you have any recommendations please let me know! And I often exfoliate my lips with sugar and honey! Although, the lush lip exfoliators seem really useful too!
007. On average, how long does it take you to do your make-up?
On a weekday when i'm going to school, i wear minimal make up so around 10-15 minutes. If i want to wear a bit more, then maybe 20-30 minutes! :)
008. Do you wear make-up everyday and everywhere?
It sounds ridiculous.. but yes! Most places! Sometimes I don't for school if my skin is looking ok (which it rarely ever does) but otherwise i have to at least put a bit of concealer on a little bit of mascara.
009. What's your weakness: shoes, bags, clothes, jewellery or make-up?
Definitely clothes and make up! I cannot go into boots/superdrug with out buying anything!
010. Do you whiten your teeth?
Nope, but i do use a whitening tooth paste! and i really want to get white teeth before i get my braces!
11. Do you wax your eyebrows or pluck them?
I've never had them waxed, but if i have plucked them (a bit too much if i'm honest)
12. What do you use to contour?
I either use the bourjois bronzing powder or the sleek contour kit! I prefer the sleek contour kit as it is matte and comes with a highlighter!
13. False lashes or natural?
I've never worn false lashes, as i am quite lucky to not have really short lashes!
14. Favourite make-up brand(s)?
I don't think I could choose! Although i don't own many mac products, they are the ones that I want to get more of!
15. Liquid, gel, or pencil eyeliner?
Gel! I find it's the easiest to apply and the most long lasting :)
16. Lipstick, Lip gloss, or chapstick?
Between lipstick and chapstick! I don't really like the feel of having sticky lip gloss on my lips!
17. Pigments, cream or pressed eyeshadows?
i like cream shadows because i like how they can sometimes look 'glossy' on the eye lids!
18. Neutral or dramatic eyeshadow?
For me, neutral!I am quite young so i don't like to wear a lot of dark colours! :)
19. Do you care more for quality or name brand?
Quality, if something is cheap but really good quality then i will buy it and rave about it, but say if something was a really good brand yet awful quality i wouldn't by it and rave about it just because it is a certain brand!
20. What's your current obsession?
Non make-up wise: LANA DEL REY! i love her so much! And i'm going to see her in may! Ahhh!
Make up wise: Skincare! I am currently on the hunt for new skincare products because i really want to make the most out of my skin!
That's my 20 questions beauty tag.. Hope you enjoyed reading!
