The 40 Beauty Questions Tag

Leave a Comment
I first spotted the '40 Beauty Questions' on Kirstie's Yellow Brick Blog and seeing as I try to keep my blog aimed at beauty and lifestyle posts, I thought I'd give it a go! Feel free to tag yourself if you fancy writing a different kind of post for a change - leave me your links to the post if you do!

How many times do you wash your face daily?
At least once or twice a day. When I haven't got gradual tan on my face I love having the perfect excuse to exfoliate! I will use a face wash before bed as long as I'm not too tired!

What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
I've definitely got normal skin as I never have any problems with it! (I'm not rubbing it in) I will occasionally get some dry patches around my nose but that's about it.

What is your current facial wash?
I'm currently using up Neutrogena's Pink Grapefruit daily wash and also using Clean&Clear's Morning Energy daily scrub.
Do you exfoliate?
Yes! I absolutely love having a good excuse to exfoliate- I know you're not supposed to do it everyday so I force myself not to, but I easily could!

What brand do you use?
I'm using Soap and Glory's Sugar Crush body scrub - smells so delicious! I'm also using The Body Shop's mango sugar scrub which is perfect for getting rid of any annoying lingering fake tan patches!

What moisturiser do you use?
I've got a few moisturisers on the go at the minute, I can imagine you're not supposed to mix them up though? I'm loving Garnier's Wake Me Up moisture match and Clean and Clear's morning energy moisturiser.

Do you have freckles?
Too many to count! Especially when the sun rears its head, the army of freckles come out too!

Do you use eye cream?
When I remember! I've got a few eye creams and love applying them but I tend to forget. I use Nip+Fab's Dark Circle Fix and Clinique's kind to eyes roll on. Apparantly the skin around our eyes are very thin so I'll make more effort to not forget!

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Luckily I don't suffer with my skin.  I will just get the occasional spot now and then when I eat too unhealthily but they don't pop up too often. I bet now I've said that, I'll wake up with a big fat one my nose!

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
I have had to Google this as I've never heard of it! It's skincare for acne-prone skin, so as explained above I don't suffer with spots, so no I haven't!

What foundation do you use?

My current favourite is No7's Beautifully Matte foundation in 'Deeply Beige' after being skin matched at my local Boots. It gives good coverage, which is the main thing I look for in a foundation but it can dry out my skin sometimes so I make sure I moisturise before and after using.

How about concealer?
I used to spend so much time trying to conceal my 'dark circles'. Literally, I would have paid ridiculous amounts for something that probably wont even work. Using a light gradual tan on my face gives me a bit more colour on my unusually pale skin! This helps with my dark circles, so I now just use a cheap Natural Collection concealer for when I remember.

Do you know your undertone colour?
 have absolutely no idea. This is the part where I go and find out ...

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
Love them! I only wear them on a night out these days, but I used to wear them every single day without fail! I tend to buy the pack of ten pairs that are an absolute bargain from ebay and use a good Revlon adhesive glue to keep them in place!

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Ooh, not three months, I thought it was every six months. Shock confession, I don't go out of my way to dispose of mascaras too old I keep them and use them later on after forgetting I opened them! Don't worry I know this is naughty and they are holding all sorts of yucky bacteria.
What brand of mascara do you use?
I'm always changing it up, I can't stick to just the one! I love Benefit's 'They're Real' mascara for length and then use Rimmel's Scandaleyes in extreme black to add volume on top.

Sephora or MAC?
Neither! I've never heard of Sephora (is that bad?!) I tried MAC's Studio Fix Fluid foundation after reading such rave reviews, but was hugely disappointed that I spent £30.00 on something which was not worth it for me.

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
Short and sweet - No.
What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
My grubby paws! I'm afraid I don't bother using makeup brushes, it's all applied by my paws apart from eyeshadow! I wonder if I'd prefer foundation after applying with a brush instead, so I should give it a go.

Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?

For the face?
I use Nivea Express Hydration Primer when I remember. It's lovely and moisturising and I only need to apply a small amount to cover my whole face. I'm pretty bad at remembering to apply it though as it doesn't fit in my makeup bag so it tends to disappear for a few weeks!

What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I only use Rimmel's eyeshadow! My favourite is Smokey Quartz.

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?

Both. I mainly use liquid eyeliner on my top eyelids and then use a pencil eyeliner on my water line (if my eyes aren't giving me grief!).

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Not very often actually! I'm probably more likely to get a mascara brush or a smudge of eyeliner in my eye - ouch! So annoying when your whole eye makeup is then ruined!

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
Oops, what's a pigment eyeshadow?

Do you use mineral makeup?
I don't but I used to love using L'Oreal True Match minerals foundation. I like a lot of coverage though, so I tend to stick to liquid foundations. I would love to try Bare Minerals foundation though.

What is your favorite lipstick?
None! I have nude lips almost constantly, I always end up smudging it off and can't be bothered to reapply. So lazy.

How about lipgloss?
Ugh, I hate using lipgloss! I know it looks good on others but I just don't feel it suits me. I hate the feel of it, all slimey on my lips!

What is your favorite blush to use?
I usually forget to use blusher. I'm noticing a pattern of my forgetfulness/laziness whilst answering these questions! I use a Clinique blusher my mum gave me, I'm not sure what exactly it is but I love it!

Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
I know you have to be careful about buying makeup on ebay - there are a lot of fakes out there! I would be willing to buy a boxed brand new item from a genuine seller though.

Do you like drugstore makeup?
My favourite!

Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
I'm afraid not. I have no idea if there are any near me or not.
Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I don't think I would bother to be honest! Although it would be good to learn new tricks, so maybe so!
 Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I can be but it depends if I'm rushing usually I can end up with liquid eyeliner smudged up to my eyebrows - not a good look.
Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Hmm, maybe too much eyebrow pencil?! I think we all make makeup mistakes and learn from them, so who am I to judge!

Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?

I would stick to neutral shades of eye shadow but I would use a brighter shade of lipstick to try out a new look.

Which celebrity always has great make up?
Demi Lovato. I absolutely love the makeup she wears when she is on X Factor USA, she's drop dead gorgeous. Plus she looks good without it to!

 Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes I do, I don't do it all the time obviously but sometimes there's things that are more important than the way you look.

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
In an nutshell, no. But that's the way I am and it's not always practical to constantly be wearing makeup!

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
Foundation wise, it would have to be No7 or Clinique. For all my eye makeup, Rimmel is my favourite as the products are great and such a bargain too!
What do you think of Makeup? 
Love it of course! I love how much it can improve confidence and you can completely change your look to suit your mood.

I tag you! x
