beauty questions tag! ♡

Welcome back! So I was scrolling through blog posts ( old and new ) and I came across the  beauty questions tag! I have not done this tag so I thought I would join in, please feel free to join in and do your blog posts on this tag...

How many times do you wash your face daily?
I try to do it twice. I sometimes do it of a morning, but some mornings I am just too lazy ( not a morning person ) and I will just skip the wash and go straight to toner. Of a night I go all out, I wash and do my skincare routine. So I try for twice but mostly once.

What skin type do you have?
I am combination, but I am more dry than oily. I only get a tiny bit oily on my T-zone. 

What is your current cleanser?
Liz Earle cleanse and polish hot cloth cleanser and Cetaphil gentle cleanser. Both really nice, gentle cleansers!

Do you exfoliate, if so what do you use?
Yes I do! I love exfoliating. I don't do it every day because I don't want to irritate my skin so I only do it 3 times a week. I use Liz Earle gentle exfoliate. This is so nice, it smells like a spa...very relaxing. It gives a good scrub but gentle and soft. If I am needing a bit more of a harder scrub ( nothing harsh or scratchy ) I like to use the St Ives apricot scrub. This smells so yummy and feels so good, it's a good gritty scrub but still gentle. 

 What Moisturiser do you use? ( day + night )
I use the Liz Earle Skin repair moisturiser in the day and night but I also use the Philosophy hope in a jar night cream to give my skin extra moisture of a night. I will also use a beauty oil some nights. 

Do you have Freckles?
I only have some slight freckles around my nose. You can hardly see them, but in the summer they are abit more visible. 

Do you use eye cream?
I don't at the minute because I have ran out of my eye creams so I am currently not using any. :(

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
When my skin was just oily I use to suffer with a lot of spots but now my skin has changed from oily to dry I don't suffer any more I will sometimes have a mini break out or a few pop up around that time of the month.

Have you ever used Pro-Activ?
I have not tried it. I have read alot of mixed reviews on it so I am not sure I would try it. 

What foundation do you use?
I use L'Oreal true match or I will use L'Oreal True match lumi. On days when I want full coverage and a flawless base I will use Clarins Flawless coverage foundation.

How about Concealer?
I use Maybelline fit me concealer or Garnier eye roll on.

Do you know your undertone colour?
I am a neutral with pink undertones.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I love them! I think they bring a different look to a makeup look and I think it compliments everyone and they look so girly and sexy!

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Of course! But I am bad at this I forget and sometimes my mascara is not ready to get thrown out because there is alot of product left and that would just be a waste of money.

What brand of mascara do you use?
I love so many! My favourite combo currently is Maybelline rocket and L'Oreal telescopic ( the gold tube ) Both of these are fabulous!

Are you a MAC fan?
I do like the blushes and lipsticks but that is it, I am not a hardcore Mac collector I prefer other brands.

Do you have a MAC pro card?

What makeup tools do you use in your makeup application?
Brushes and a beauty blender. I love the Real techniques brushes and the Zoeva brushes.

Do you use a primer for the eyes?
Always! Either Urban Decay Primer Potion or Beauty UK Primer. I think it's very important to stop creasing and something for the shadows to stick to.

What about a face primer?
Sometimes I will use Benefit Porefessional. I am going to buy the L'Oreal Lumi Primer.

What is your favourite eye shadow colour and brand?
I love warm browns and bronze colours. They make my brown eyes pop and I am just such a warm shade gal for eye shadows. I also love a little shimmer and glitter! For brand Urban Decay all the way!!!!

Do you use pencil, gel or liquid eyeliner?
Pencil 90% of the time and gel the 10%. I don't really use liquid because I like the look gel gives, and pencil is more softer.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil or mascara?
Very rarely, I am careful! If I do have a slip and poke my eye it's always with the mascara wands. 

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I like them, however I don't reach for them that much because it's easier and quicker to work with regular pan shadows. If I have the time and effort I will use them.

Do you use mineral makeup?
Nope! I am not much of a fan, it irritated my skin to be honest. I also find the coverage is poor.

What is your favourite lipstick colour and brands?
I love soft colours and dark colours. I love baby pinks and dark purples and fuchsia pinks and fire engine reds and soft rosy colours. For brands I am a big fan or Revlon and Maybelline.

How about lipgloss?
I love Revlon and Mac and Maybelline. I pick colours that go with the lipsticks I pick/have.

What is your favourite blush to use?
I LOVE the sleek blushes they are so pigmented and pretty and some of them have a little iridescent shimmer to highlight the cheeks.

Do you buy any makeup on Ebay?
Only sometimes I do, if I can get it a little cheaper than the store but 95% I buy from the store.

Do you like drugstore makeup, if so what brands?
I love it! I am a big fan of revlon, Maybelline and sleek. I also love L'Oreal and Barry M.

What about high end? Any brands you like?
I love the high end makeup too! I love Urban decay the most and Benefit they are my two favourites. 

Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?
Yes and I am! I am doing a private make-up course and I am so excited. Make-up has always been my passion and something I love and want to do as a career. Soon I will be a qualified makeup artist. Super excited!!!! I would love to take a few classes at MAC!

Are you clumsy with applying your makeup?
No! I love putting my makeup on and I love the process of applying it all. So I like to take my time, I am in my happy place. Even if I am so tired and it's so early in the morning, once I sit in the chair to do my makeup I waken up and I love it.

Name a makeup crime you dislike?
I do not understand shaved eyebrows then drawn on? this confuses me and I dislike it. I also don't like unblended eye shadow and nothing is blended on the face.

Do you like colourful shades or neutral?
Both! But I am more for colour. Just can't help it, I love makeup and love all the gorgeous colours. I do have them neutral days sometimes. 

Which Celebrity always has great makeup?
I love Jennifer Love Hewitt her makeup is always nice, her bronzed eyes are gorgeous! I also love Christina Aguilera red lip. To be honest I love Jaclyn hill on YouTube. Her makeup is gorgeous, she is very skilled. She is mainly my inspiration rather than a ' celebrity '

If you could leave the house only using ONE makeup item, what would you use?
I'd curl my lashes and apply Mascara! I think it brings the eyes to life and for me it makes me feel girly. 

Could you ever leave your house without any makeup on?
I could but I'd prefer not to because I like to make an effort with myself, and I like the process of applying makeup and playing around with it. 

Do you think you look good even without makeup on?
Yeah I do, but like most woman I prefer and feel more girly with makeup on!

In your opinion, what is the best makeup brand?
That is hard... I love Urban Decay for shadows, L'Oreal for face and Sleek for blushes. Oh so many amazing brands!

What do you think about makeup?
I think makeup is fab! It brings us girls confidence, and creativity and some of us careers. It's something to play around with and experiment and enjoy.
