Random Makeup Tag Question




 10 Makeup Questions

I thought it would be fun to answer some random questions regarding makeup/beauty products, skincare and random beauty related things. I'm hoping that this will get me to re-evaluate what products I use, so I can try some new things! So here we go ....
 
1- How many times do you wash your face?
Usually twice a day. It is rare that I would wash it more, but sometimes I feel the need to wash my face midday. ( Depending on how bad/oily I feel my skin looks) 

2- What is your current facial wash?


Currently, I use Philosophy's Purity.
I really like it, but it is nothing special. Once I finish the bottle, I am going to try something else. 


 It leaves my skin feeling really soft, and it's gentle too! I love that my skin did not breakout from this.




3- What foundation do you use?
Currently I use the Nars Sheer Matte foundation. I really like it because it is light on my skin but it still leaves my skin feeling matte. I have really oily skin and I have a hard time finding the right type of liquid foundation. I was using Makeup Forever's Mat Velvet, and that is great, but I just found it to be a little too heavy.(I like that one for the Winter months)  

4- What make-up tools do you use in your make-up application?

I use brushes mainly, but I also love using the Beauty Blender. It is somewhat annoying that I have to use it wet, but when I feel my foundation is dry or really heavy, this baby is wonderful at making it go on my skin in a sheer way.





5- Do you use pencil or liquid eye-liner?

 Both actually. However, I feel that using pencil liners is more "everyday-friendly".
 
6- What is your favourite blush?
 I have three that I love: MAC's Coppertone, Melba and Sincere ( all of which are in the coral/orange/bronze family)
  
7- What is the worst make-up crime?
Poorly done eyebrows. Almost every woman, unless you are Brooke Shields, fills in her eyebrows. However, the worst thing any girl can do is mess up the shape of her brow by over-drawing them. (And in some cases, just messing up the shape all together). Eyebrows really do shape your face, so it is one of the most important things to get right. 

8- Which celebrity always has great make-up?

There are a few women that I admire when it comes to their makeup... and let's be honest, we have to give credit to their makeup artists. Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Blake Lively and Adele all have their makeup on point!


9- If you could leave the house with just ONE Make-up item, what would you use?
A really good eyebrow pencil!



10- Could you ever leave the house without any make-up on?

Of course. I used to think that I could never... OMG THE HORROR... but I've learned that the best feeling in the world is not having any makeup on my face. I don't do it often, because I like to look polished but I am confident enough to leave my house without any makeup on...sometimes.
