40 Questions - Beauty Tag

I do love a good tag! I saw this on Stacey's blog over at Journey of a Thousand Miles and thought I'd give it a go :)


-How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice, because I'm a good little b-blogger!

-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo) 
It's a combination of normal/oily but with a few cheeky dry patches here and there.

-What is your current facial wash?
Superdrug's Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser and I also use Clarins Water Purify One-Step Cleanser for removing make-up.

-Do you exfoliate?
Yes, I exfoliate every other day.

-What brand do you use?
For...exfoliating? Body Shop, quite a lot of my skincare comes from the Body Shop.

-What moisturiser do you use?
I use No.7 Moisturiser for Oily Skin. Can't mind the full title :P

-Do you have freckles?

I do indeed! Lucky me, my mum always mistakes them for smudges and tries to get them off... til she realises it's my skin.

-Do you use eye cream?
Yes, I use Body Shop's Elderflower Gel. So light and refreshing on the eyes :)

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

Not really, I had a few spots but I never had full-blown acne.

-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
Nope... what's that?


-What foundation do you use?
I use a few, GOSH BB Cream, 17 Miracle Matte, Benefit's Hello Flawless, Dior Forever Flawless.

-How about concealer?
Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer.
-Do you know your undertone colour?
I think it's pink.
-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I've only worn them once or twice. I don't mind them but I wouldn't use them often.
-Did you know that you are suppose to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, but I never do, I'm a lazy blogger :P
-What brand of mascara do you use?
I use Max Factor and Benefit mainly, but I use quite a few different ones.
-Sephora or MAC?
MAC, I've never tried any Sephora. Would be nice though... *hint hint*
-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
... Is it bad I have no idea what that is?

-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
I use Real Techniques and ELF brushes.

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
I use either an MUA primer or I've just started using an Urban Decay one too.
-For the face?
I use either L'Oreal Studio Secrets, or Benefit's Porefessional.

-What is your favourite eyeshadow (colour or shade)?
I love a good green shade :)

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Not at all actually, though now I've said that I probably will lol!
-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
If I had a more deft hand I'd be fine, but I find them a bit messy.
-Do you use mineral makeup?
No, I've been told I should though, but I hate mineral powder foundations.
-What is your favourite lipstick?
I love my Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet. It is my absolute favourite!

-How about lipgloss?
I'm loving my Stila Lip Glazes at the moment :)

-What is your favourite blush to use?
Benefit's Hervana.

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
Never, I wouldn't mind though, but it's hard to check the quality and the validity of the product so that makes me wary...
-Do you like drugstore makeup?

-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
Nope, we don't have one of them in Fife.

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Yes, particularly with eyeliner!
-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Wearing the wrong foundation shade, going too dark. The Wotsit look is not a good one ladies...
-Do you like colourful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I love it! Would wear bright colours more often if I could.
-Which celebrity always has great make up?
Blake Lively. My god she is so beautiful!
-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
Primer. On the days I can't be bothered it's all I'll put on.

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes, I do it all the time :)

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
You'd be better asking my boyfriend that :P

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
For drug-store, MUA, for high-end I'd go for either Chanel or Benefit.

-What do you think of Makeup??
  I can't get enough of it! Love it love it love it!
