Tag: 40 Beauty Questions

I'm exhausted from a day of DIY so I decided to do one of these beauty question posts for the craic.  I found it here on one of my new follower's blogs and loved it so had to do it :)

Skincare:
How many times do you wash your face daily?
Once, in the evening, am too lazy in the morning.

What skin type do you have?
Combination oily/normal

What is your current facial wash?
I have a couple but at the mo' I switch between Neutrogena's Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Facial Wash and Mask, and my Pears transparent soap.
Do you exfoliate?
Yep, a couple of times a week.
What brand do you use?
I use Soap and Glory The Greatest Scrub of All, or I'll use my facial wash/soap with a facial buffer sponge thingy.
What moisturiser do you use?
Aldi's Lacura brand! It's lovely and cheap as chips :)
Do you have freckles?
Yes.

Do you use an eye cream?
I used to but then about two years ago, I developed a cyst under my eye and had to get it removed.  I still don't know what caused it but I'm afraid to use an eye cream in case that's what it was.
Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Not acne, but I did have a breakout or two in my time!  Nowadays my skin is ok, except for the breakout I had about 2 weeks ago, I think I know what the culprit was, blog post to follow :)

Did you ever have to use Proactiv?
Nope.
Make-up:
What foundation do you use?
Gosh Natural Touch Foundation
How about concealer?
Not really.
Do you know your undertone colour?
Not a clue.  I'm an NW15 in Mac foundations, whatever that means.
 
What do you think of fake eyelashes?
Love them!  They're great for adding a bit of drama to a makeup look. 

Did you know what you are supposed to change your mascara every three months?
Yep, but I don't always, bad me.

What brand of mascara do you use?
Maybelline Lash Stiletto or Rimmel Lash Accelerator.
Sephora or MAC?
MAC, cause there is no Sephora in Ireland, but when I go to NY, it's Sephora all the way!

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
No.

What make-up tools do you use in application?
Brushes.
Do you use a make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Always.  My eyeshadow always creases so it's a necessity pour moi!
For the face?
Only use a facial primer if I'm going out for the night, not during the day.
 
What is your favourite eyeshadow (colour or shade)?
Stila's Kitten.  Perfect everyday eyeshadow.
Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Liquid on lid, pencil on waterline.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Never so far, I do however poke myself with mascara wand all the time.
What do you think of pigment shadows?
Too messy.
Do you use mineral makeup?
No, I tried the Bare Minerals a couple of years ago but felt like it gave me no coverage at all.
What's your favourite lipstick?
It's a Sephora one, I think it's called Romantic Rose or something like that. 

How about lipgloss?
Love Barry M's pink one, not sure of the shade but it's gorgeous. 

What is your favourite blush to use?
MEMEME's Shimmy Shimmers in Pink, gorrrrrgeous.
Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
No.

Do you like drugstore makeup?
Deffo, you can get great bargains there.
Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
Not in Ireland but again, when in NY, we always head to Woodbury Commons and I spend a small fortune in the CCO.
Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
Yeah but they're so expensive.
Are you clumsy in putting on make-up?
Sometimes, if I'm doing something I've never done before or if I'm pressed for time, but ususally I'm ok.

Name a make-up crime that you hate.
Foundation line or foundation streaks.

Do you like colourful shades or makeup or neutral ones?
Neutral shades.

Which celebrity always has great make-up?
Kim Kardashian or Cheryl Cole.

If you could leave the house using just one make-up item, what would you use?
Foundation hands down.
Could you ever leave the house without any make-up on?
Yes.

Do you think you look good even without any make-up on?
In the summer it's not too bad, these cold days, I look like death hehe
In your opinion, what is the best make-up line?
That's a hard one, there's no one brand that I'm loyal to for every kind of product.  I love trying different products from many companies, be they cheap or expensive.  At the moment I'm going through a bargain finding mission, so am loving MUA from Superdrug and Sleek makeup.  Will think about this one :)
