Because why not?

30 Beauty Questions Tag.

8 November 2014
I want to get to know some of my fellow bloggers a little better, easiest way? Tag them!

1. Do you remember your first makeup item?
I don't, it was likely a lip gloss or mascara though.

2. Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
Lengthening and volumising, Benefit's They're Real is still my favourite.

3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?
Medium to full, I like a flawless base.

4. Favorite high end brand?
Giorgio Armani, their foundations are beautiful and everything else I've tried hasn't failed to impress.

5. What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven't? 

6. Favorite drugstore brand?
Probably Essence or Australis, I don't have a lot of stuff from either brand but what I've tried I have liked.

7. Do you wear fake eyelashes? 
For special occasions yes and I also go through phases where I will wear them everyday just because I feel like it.

8. Is there any kind of makeup you can't leave the house without?
Not really, recently I've been going makeup free or full face, once upon a time I wouldn't let anyone see me without mascara.

9. What is your most cherished beauty product?
Probably any of my high end shadow palettes.

10. How often do you shop for makeup? Do you like to pick up an item here and there or get lots of goodies at once?
I love a good haul but my wallet doesn't always allow for that, I'd say I do a mixture of both.

11. Do you have a "beauty budget" or you spend freely?
I guess I do have a budget but the amount varies, some weeks I can go mad, others I don't have a cent to spare.

12. Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
Rewards cards most definitely as well as sales but we don't get a lot of coupons in Australia and when we do they are usually for shit I don't want.

13. What type of product do you buy the most of?
I don't think I have a specific product that I buy most over others, I go through phases of wanting more of this or more of that but at the end of the year it all seems to balance out. I've been buying Memeboxes like a psychopath recently though.

14. Is there a brand that you absolutely can't stand?
Nude By Nature.

15. Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?
Not really, I haven't worked out what ingredients break me out simply because I'm lazy and don't want to start that arduous task.

16. Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?
Mecca Cosmetica/Maxima, Myer and David Jones, anywhere that sells anything related to SPFX, Memebox and basically anywhere online.

17. Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
I love trying new skincare, I find when I switch things up I get better results compared to when I keep a set routine for an extended period but I also keep tried and tested products that I can fall back on when my experimenting goes south.

18. Favorite bath and body brand?
Lush although I struggle to shop in their stores because some scents trigger my migraines, I also adore The Body Shop body butters and washes.

19. If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose?
NO. I can't choose. I won't choose.

20. What brand do you think has the best packaging?
This is a hard one, I really don't think any brand can be named for this.. Maybe MAC but even they have some shitty packaging.

21. Which celebrity always has great makeup?
I don't follow celebrities closely enough to have an opinion on this, they mostly annoy me.

22. Do you belong to any online makeup communities?
Beauty Heaven and Makeup Talk are my favourites.

23. 5 Favorite Beauty Gurus
Victoria Donelda, Nikki Tutorials, Kiana Jones SFX, Caroline Hirons & Pinkstylist.

24. Do you like multi-functional products like lip and cheek stains?
No, don't get me started.

25. Are you clumsy in putting makeup on?
Not really.

26. Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
No, foundation or concealer will do the same thing, I have a few that I use occasionally to make a dent in them but I don't actively buy them.

27. How many hair products do you use on a typical day?
1-2, usually a heat protectant leave in or some sort of oil if my hair needs it. Unless I'm washing my hair then we bring out the big guns.

28. What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
Concealer usually, depends how my skin is looking.

29. Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?
Already have, I did a Diploma in Specialist Makeup Services.

30. What do you love about makeup?
What don't I love about makeup!
