Beauty Tag

I’m keeping today a bit simple with a 30 questions Beauty Tag that I found on The Beauty Section. This week is just going to get more crazy so I figured we can just have some fun on the blog while I try to keep up with blogging every day this month!

  1. Do you remember your first makeup item? I know my first “makeup item” was definitely a smackers chapstick. My first “real makeup item” was an eyeshadow single from Origins– Celestial Shimmer! 
  2. Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications? This honestly varies by look. Sometimes I want clumpy to add some thickness without being over the top, sometimes I want something that gives me mile long lashes and separates each lash. My current favorites are Tarte’s Gifted Mascara and Urban Decay’s Perversion
  3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation? I don’t wear foundation all that much but when I do I want medium to full coverage. If I’m wearing it, I’m probably going to a formal even or somewhere where I’ll be taking a lot of pictures and I want my skin to look flawless without being cakey. I’m currently loving tarte’s shape tape hydrating foundation.
  4. Favorite high end brand? If you ask my current collection– Tarte, Urban Decay, and Anastasia Beverly Hills. 
  5. What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t? Fenty, Natasha Denona, Hourglass.
  6. Favorite drugstore brand? Nyx and Maybelline.
  7. Do you wear fake eyelashes? No! I tried once and hated it. I still get drawn into looking at the different styles and wanting to try again but I also feel like my eyes are so small that they get overwhelmed by most false lashes. 
  8. Is there any kind of make up you can’t leave the house without? Mascara. At the very least I always have mascara on. 
  9. What is your most cherished beauty product? Probably my Tarteist Pro Palette
  10. How often do you shop for make up? Do you like to pick up an item here and there or get lots of goodies at once? I usually buy things as I need them. Or if there is a product that I really want to try. I try not to buy make up more than once a month– if that!
  11. Do you have a beauty budget or spend freely? Spend freely… which probably isn’t a good idea! That’s how I ended up getting the ABH Sultry Palette even though I only bought the Norvina Palette a month ago. 
  12. Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards, and sales when you shop for cosmetics? Of course! Whenever I can, I always try to get a deal. 
  13. What type of product do you buy the most of? Mascara and eyeliner… and eyeshadow palettes if I’m looking at my desk right now. 
  14. Is there a brand that you absolutely can’t stand? Lipsense. The burning!!!!
  15. Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics or sulfates? Not usually. I do try and buy cruelty free.
  16. Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup? Sephora or Ulta. 
  17. Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine? I tend to experiment a bit and love getting to try new items!
  18. Favorite bath and body brand? Zoella Beauty, at the moment. 
  19. If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose? Tarte, hands down. They have everything I need. 
  20. What brand do you think has the best packaging? I’ve been loving ABH’s packaging lately. Simple but different with the fuzzy or sparkly additions. 
  21. Which celebrity always has great makeup? I don’t pay attention that much…
  22. DO you belong to any online makeup communities? Nope, not at all. 
  23. 5 Favorite Beauty Gurus. Mykie/Glam and Gore, Tati, Cristine/SimplyNailLogical… that’s it for me.
  24. Do you like multifunctional products like lip and cheek stains? Ehhhh, I haven’t had great luck with them. 
  25. Are you clumsy in putting on makeup? I try not to be! I only get one shot a day!
  26. Do you use  makeup base/primer for the eyes? Yes! Gotta love Urban Decay’s Primer Potion ❤
  27. How many hair products do you use on a typical day? For dry hair, almost none. I usually try to remember a heat protectant if I’m heat styling and dry shampoo for grip along with hairspray. In the shower I use a purple shampoo for my blonde balayage, a moisturizing shampoo, a hair mask, and conditioner with a drop of argan oil followed by a leave in conditioner. I used to only use two products!
  28. What do you apply first: concealer or foundation? Foundation. 
  29. Do you consider taking makeup classes? Nope. If I go to Sephora for a free mini-make over, I just listen to what the artist is saying. 
  30. What do you love about make up? It is so much fun! I love experimenting and practicing and getting better and better every day.
