40 Beauty Questions Tag

Monday, 12 September 2016

Hi guys! I was tagged by the lovely Kathy from alongcamekathy to do this post and I am finally getting around to doing it! Kathy has a wonderful lifestyle and beauty blog and also designs some gorgeous graphics such as this one, so go check her out! 

40 Beauty Questions:
How many times do you wash your face daily? Twice, morning and evening. 
What skin type do you have? Oily/Combination.
What is your current facial wash? I use Benzac AC-hardcore stuff to keep my acne at bay haha!
Do you exfoliate? Not on my face, I find it's too rough. I do on the rest of me though! 
What brand do you use? I use the Garnier Beauty Oil Scrub, and it's amazing! It smells soo good and really exfoliates and moisturises at the same time. 
What moisturizer do you use? Garnier Moisture Match Illuminating Light Lotion-although I hardly ever use moisturiser on my face as they all seem to make it more oily! 
Do you have freckles? No, but I've always wished I did! 
Do you use eye cream? Nope.
Do you or did you have acne prone skin? Sadly yes! It tends to come and go but my skin definitely isn't the best!
Did you ever have to use Pro-activ? I did use it for a while, but it ended up being way too expensive to order so I switched to Benzac. 

What foundation do you use? I generally use Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Effect, which has pretty good coverage and also a little bit of sparkle!
How about concealer? My holy grail concealer is the Maybelline Age Rewind one, which everyone raves about! 
Do you know your undertone color? To be honest, not really! This is probably something I should work out...
What do you think of fake eyelashes? I love how they look but I do not love how bad I am at applying them. 
Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months? I may have known this. I may also have ignored it because there's no way I'm chucking out my favourite mascara before it's completely empty! 
What brand of mascara do you use? I switch between Maybelline Lash Sensational and Revlon Ultimate All-In-One.
Sephora or MAC? I've never shopped at either (I don't think there's Sephora in Aussie, or maybe only in the big cities??)...what a bad beauty blogger! 
Do you have a MAC Pro-card? No.
What makeup tools do you use in make up application? I'm loving the Nude by Nature makeup brushes at the moment.
Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes? Yes. I'm loving the Australis Eye Primer at the moment! 
For the face? Yes! Face of Australia is my go-to primer. 
What is your favourite eyeshadow (colour or shade)? I've raved about this one before, the L'Oreal Color Riche Eye Color Pencil which I literally wear every single day!
Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner? Liquid, although I find pencil a lot easier! 
How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil? Literally every time...
What do you think of pigment eyeshadows? I'm prone to being a bit heavy handed with my makeup so I approach them with caution!
Do you use mineral makeup? I've never tried it-anyone got some recommendations for me?
What is your favourite lipstick? This is such a tough one! It would probably have to be Maybelline Colorsensational in Totally Toffee- it's the only lipstick I've ever completely used up!
How about lipgloss? I don't really wear lipgloss, but the one I wear most is the shade Cupcake from Colour Theory.
What is your favourite blush to use? Again from Colour Theory, the shade Cheeky Glow is a really easy to use, natural looking blush! 
Do you buy your makeup on eBay? No, I don't really trust it.
Do you like drugstore makeup? Duh. Is there anyone who doesn't?! I could actually live in Priceline, I swear!
Do you go to CCO's? (Cosmetic Company Outlets) Not quite sure what the Australian version of these is, but I'm sure I would if we had them! 
Did you ever consider taking makeup classes? I did consider it, but they're pretty expensive and I can generally learn all I need from youtube tutorials!
Are you clumsy in putting on makeup? Oh yes...literally every time I do my makeup some sort of mistake is going to happen! I've stopped even getting annoyed, I just expect it now!
Name a makeup crime that you hate. When you can see the visible line of someone's foundation-it just really bugs me! 
Do you like colourful shades of makeup (lipstick, eyeshadow) or neutral ones? I love both, depending on the occasion! 
Which celebrity always has great makeup? Does Zoella count as a celebrity? I think so, and her makeup is always so on point!
If you could leave the house using just ONE makeup item, what would you use? If I was having a bad skin day, BB cream. If my skin was ok it would be mascara! 
Could you ever leave the house without makeup on? Yes, I regularly do.
Do you think you look good even without any makeup on? Of course! I love makeup as an art form and a fun thing to do, I don't feel like I have to wear it to look good. Although it does help when I'm running on a few hours of sleep haha! 
In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line? What do you think of makeup? Kinda answered this above,'s something I really enjoy playing around with, it's basically the only artistic thing that I feel like I'm halfway good at! 

I'm tagging Rai from Utter Ardour and Angela from A Style Collector, as well as anyone else who would like to do this tag. It was super fun answering the questions and seeing what other people have answered! 
Wishing you all a happy, peaceful Sunday!
