Beauty Tag

Saturday, August 01, 2015

Hi all! This week I have been tagged by the wonderful Ellie to do this 40 Questions Beauty Tag! It's quite a nice way to find out more about my beauty regime is a very fast passed manner!

1. How many times do you wash your face daily?
I always wash my face in the evening if I wore makeup that day, but I have recently made the change to stop unnecessarily washing my face because when there's nothing bad on my face and I wash it, it gets rid of a lot of my natural oils (plus it saves me a lot on facial cleansers!)
2. What skin type do you have? (Dry, oily, combo)
I used to have both dry and oily but that was just around my nose area, until I stopped washing my face every morning and every night. Now I have combination skin, where it's basically just normal everywhere except my nose where it gets oily.
3. What is your current facial wash?
I am currently using the Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser
4. Do you exfoliate?
Most mornings in the shower I use a loofa and a body wash to exfoliate my body, but I don't exfoliate my face.
5. What brand do you use?
I am currently using the Lush Snow Fairy body wash
6. What moisturiser do you use?
My Mum introduced me to the Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture(iser) for Sensitive Skin about five or so years ago and I haven't looked back!
7. Do you have freckles?
I have so many freckles, all over my face on my cheeks and nose, I find them quite cute!
8. Do you use eye-cream?
I actually don't, but with the bags I have under my eyes and how sensitive my skin is I feel like I probably should.
9. Did you or do you have acne prone skin?
During puberty - around 16-18 I had quite bad acne on my face, chest and back, but I went on The Pill and it's basically all better now, just get a couple every so often, which I'm really thankful for!
10. Did you ever use Pro-Activ?
Apparently that stuff really ruined your skin, plus it was pretty pricey so I never went near the stuff

11. What foundation do you use?
At the moment I use the Rimmel Stay Matte in the shade 100 Ivory
12. How about concealer?
I'm a bad beauty guru (am I a guru??) and just put a couple of extra layers of foundation over my dark circles under my eyes and blend it in...
13. Do you know your undertone colour?
I just took a quiz and apparently I'm "cool", which doesn't surprise me as I'm pretty pale
14. What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I cry half the time when I put eyeliner on, so I'm too scared to try them, but they look great!
15. Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Oops, no!
16. What brand of mascara do you use?
I recently forked out for the Benefit Roller Lash mascara
17. Sephora or MAC?
The only MAC products I've ever used is lipsticks and I've never tried anything Sephora
18. Do you have a MAC Pro card?
19. What makeup tools do you use in your makeup application?
I use the Real Techniques makeup brushes
20. Do you use eyeshadow primer?

21. For the face?
I did have a primer that I used at highschool but it went past it's used-by date and just never really bought another
22. What is your favourite eyeshadow?
I recently got a Maybelline Colour Tattoo eyeshadow and it's so so good, stays on forever!
23. Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
I used to use pencil, I now currently use a gel eyeliner but when that runs out I'm going to try a liquid pen to see what works for me
24. How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
I used to constantly cry when I used a pencil so that's why I changed to gel and a brush!
25. Do you use mineral makeup?
26. What is your favourite lipstick?
Oh man oh man oh man I can't decide, I have one for almost every occasion and it's hard to pick just one! (here's a post I did a while back of all my lipsticks, but I have bought some new ones since then...)
27. How about lipgloss?
I find lipglosses really sticky and gross so I just don't use them
28. What is your favourite blush to use?
I found an awesome one by Rubi (which is a brand run by Cotton On) in the shade Rose
29. Do you buy makeup off E-Bay?
No, but I have bought nail art tools and some brushes online
30. Do you like drugstore makeup?
In New Zealand a "drugstore" is known as a "pharmacy" and I tend to buy most of the products that they sell

31. Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?
My type of makeup classes are Youtube tutorials as I'm too self-conscious to learn with a teacher and other students around me! 
32. Are you clumsy at putting on makeup?
I'm clumsy like 80% of the time, so yes
33. Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Not blending properly, whether it's foundation/eyeshadow/blush etc, but we all make mistakes at time so I'm not that fussed to be honest. Unless it's on me, then I'm my own worst critic
34. Do you like colourful shades or neutral ones?
Neutral, I'm too timid to try anything bright
35. Which celebrity always has great makeup?
Taylor Swift. When she's on stage, at a shoot or everyday, her makeup is always so on point! I often look at images of her to try to copy her looks
36. If you could leave the house only wearing one makeup item what would it be?
If I'm in a rush and I don't have time to do a whole look, I tend to put some blush on and either eyeliner or eyeshadow. So I'd probably say blush because I'm quite pale
37. Could you ever leave the house without makeup on?
Half the time I actually do, but if it's for a party or somewhere nice I will make myself late if it means I get to glam myself up!
38. Do you think you look good with no makeup on?
Yeah, I look alright I guess haha
39. In your opinion, what is the best makeup line?
I honestly have no idea because I don't stick to one brand, nor have I tried enough of one brand to know.
40. What is your overall opinion of makeup?
If you love it, wear it. If it makes you a bit more confident then put some on! But don't let you feel crappy about yourself if you don't wear any, just pretend you do and flaunt what cha mama gave you (I can't remember what song that's from but I'm now dancing in my bed as I sing it haha). I just find makeup really exciting, not only to wear but to be able to change the way my face is shaped by highlighting different parts, and wearing a bright (or dark) lippy makes me feel like a queen!

I'd like to tag Lydia and Arwen to fill this out, and anyone else who finds this interesting (just pretend I tagged you!)
