So on Facebook I am part of a beauty group, someone posted (check out her blog, xoxomake.com) a beauty tag to answer 30 questions about your beauty experience and makeup stuff. So here we are. I used all her questions because I think they covered all the basics of makeup and beauty.
So enjoy, and let me know if you would like to know anything else beauty related. Also if you do something like this I would love to read it.
1-Do you remember you first makeup item?
It was most probably mascara, nothing to crazy.
2-Describe your perfect mascara, have you found it?
My perfect mascara would have to be Covergirl lash blast. They have many versions, with different brushes and formulas. But Those are my fave!
3-What type of coverage do you prefer for your foundation?
A medium to full coverage foundation. When I don’t want such a full coverage I just use a light BB cream, but for the most part I like a full coverage.
4-Favorite high end makeup brand?
That is a very hard question to answer, due to the fact that I do not have a lot of high end makeup. But based on what I have tried, I am going to have to go with Makeup Forever. I have the new Highlighter duo, I am in love with it!
5-What cosmetic brands have you always wanted but still don’t have?
Hourglass, Kat Von D,Becca, Dior
6-Favorite drugstore makeup brand?
Maybelline hands down!
7-Have you mastered falsies?
Not quite, I am still working on perfecting that.
8-Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house with out?
Mascara and brows are my must! There are some days when I don’t wear any makeup
9-What is your most cherished beauty product?
I would have to say my Makeup Forever Hilight Duo. It was the most expensive item I had bought myself. I have other pallets that are more money then that (the Naked 3 Pallet) but they were given to me as gifts.
10-How often do you shop for makeup?
Way to often, it’s a little crazy the amount of time and money I had spent on my makeup. But its all worth it.
11-Do you have a beauty budget?
I probably should but I don’t. I get my self a beauty product every so often and there is know spending limit. We try to keep it under $100 in total.
12-Do you utilize coupons, rewards, and sales?
Yes, yes, and yes! My fave site to use for sales is Ebates, basically what it is, you get a percentage of your money back after spending. I think its the most amazing thing ever! Every few weeks I get a check in the mail from them, its like they are paying me to get more stuff. You should deff try it out!
13-What beauty product do you buy the most?
Concealer! always!! I some how never have enough, and I end up getting a new one every few weeks.
14-Is there a beauty brand that you dislike?
Not particularly, there might be a few items from certain brands but nothing that I hate.
15-Do you avoid certain ingredients in beauty products?
No, maybe I should but I never look at the ingredients to know what its made off.
16-Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?
Yes! Sephora, Ulta, Target
17-Do you like trying new skin products?
Most of the time yes, because even if some people didn’t like how it worked with their skin no one has the same skin so it will most likely be different on you. But a few times I had tried a new product and I broke out. So I am a little more careful now.
18-Favorite bath and body product?
Soap & Glory, Lush
19-If you can only buy one brand of makeup, which would you choose?
A drug store brand would be Maybelline, and a high end would probably be Makeup Forever.
20-Which brand of makeup has the best packaging?
Too Faced has really awesome packaging, its very girly, I just love it. It makes me way more excited then I should be.
21-Celebrity with the best makeup look?
I personally love a strong contour. So in my opinion Kim Kardashian-West in my opinion has the best contour. It’s all thanks to her amazing makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. So I guess that answers what my favorite celebrity makeup look.
22-Are you part of any online makeup communities?
Just part of a few Facebook groups.
23-Favorite beauty gurus?
Carli Bybel, Nicole Guerriero, Jaclyn Hill, Nikkie Tutorials the list goes on and on
24-Do you like multi functional beauty products?
Yes! It’s the best thing ever. Especially when you travel, it makes packing so much simpler.
25-Are you clumsy with applying your makeup?
Not at all, it always looks like I spent a lot of time, even if I spent 5 mins. But there are some days I don’t wear any makeup so I don’t know what to classify that as.
26-Do you use primer for your eyes?
Of course, we don’t want any creasing!
27-How many hair products do you use on a typical day?
Day to day the only hair product I use is It’s a 10 Leave in Miracle Product. It is a miracle! It makes your hair so soft!
28-What do you apply first? – foundation or concealer?
Foundation, its in the name.
29-Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?
Yes, I am actually signing up to one in a few weeks I am so excited! Don’t worry you will get all the details as soon as it is confirmed.
30-What do you love about makeup?
Just that it makes you feel more confidant. And I would love to become a makeup artist so I can have the ability to make other people feel good about themselves.
