I have writers block so I wanted to do a fun and easy post. Bonus! It will help you Beauties get to know me a little better 🙂 Grab a snack and/or some wine 😉 and stick around to see all my answers to the 30 Beauty Questions Tag.
*I found this tag from “The Beauty Section” blog
1 // Do you remember your first makeup item?
Lipgloss for sure. I always snuck into my mom’s makeup bag 🙂 Mom bought me my first foundation! Clinique Foundation 🙂
2 // Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
It has to be magic! Lengthens, and volumizes without clumping and smudging. I’m still on the search for the end all – be all mascara! I have found some amazing contenders that I love and use over and over, but they aren’t perfect.
3 // What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?
Light to Medium. No masks for me please 🙂
4 // Favorite high end brand?
In Green Beauty I find a lot of them are “high end” in price point, but than again, what is your definition of “high end”? FitGlow is top of my list for “high end” beauty. The price is higher than most, but the quality and ingredients are top notch.
5 //What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
Still on my list to try is: 100% Pure and Red Apple
6 // Favorite drugstore brand?
Although Natural, Green beauty products are making there way into the drugstores, I’ll have to go with E.L.F and/or NYX. They are cruelty free which is great and the prices are amazing. A lot of E.L.F products also rate very low on the “Think Dirty” app/rating system 🙂
7 // Do you wear fake eyelashes?
No…I wear glasses so they hit the lense and drive me batty. I did wear them for my wedding, but I went blind so I could 🙂 Beauty over vision! LOL
8 // Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
Any chance I get to go bare face I take it! I don’t belive that you need to wear it 24/7. I wear it for me because I enjoy it! I always have a lip gloss in my purse or pocket. Dry lips are the devil!
9 // What is your most cherished beauty product?
My eyelash curler! I have straight, barely there lashes. I need all the help I can get to frame my eyes and make me look awake even when I am not LOL
10 // How often do you shop for makeup? Do you like to pick up an item here and there or get lots of goodies at once?
Oh geeze….I look at websites all day every day! I fill up my cart and let it sit there until a sale or they send a discount code 🙂 It depends on the company if I buy per piece as I run out or if I buy in bulk. Some companies have better deals (Free shipping, gift with purchase) if you spend more. Since some of the companies I like are in the USA, the shipping is not worth it to only buy one item.
11 // Do you have a “beauty budget” or you spend freely?
I spend freely but am always shopping around for a deal and use coupon codes wherever possible.
12 // Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
YES!!! 100% yes!
13 // What type of product do you buy the most of?
14 // Is there a brand that you absolutely can’t stand?
I have yet to find a brand in the Natural, Green Beauty Community that I have not liked. There are products within companies that I did not enjoy or did not work for me, but none that I straight up can’t stand.
15 // Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?
Yes. Parabens, sulfates, gluten, talc, fragrances…. Some I am more lenient with, others are non negotiable. Cruelty free is a huge one as well for me.
16 // Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?
Online. Since a lot of the brands that I buy are not in a store in or near where I live, online is the best place to obtain the products!
17 // Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
I have sensitive and oily/combo skin, so switching up my products all willy-nilly all the time is dangerous. I do love trying new products and will, I just have to ease into them.
18 // Favorite bath and body brand?
19 // If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose?
Just one?! Root Pretty
20 // What brand do you think has the best packaging?
100% Pure has amazing packaging, followed by a very close 2nd: FitGLow. I love the pink of their packaging and it’s all recyclable.
21 // Which celebrity always has great makeup?
22 // Do you belong to any online makeup communities?
A few Facebook Communities and Pinterest Group Boards.
23 // 5 Favorite Beauty Gurus
Jaclyn Hill, Tati, LustreLux, Nicole Gurriero, Jenna Catherine
24 // Do you like multifunctional products like lip and cheek stains?
Nope. I seem to only use what they are intended for or what works for me.
25 // Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I do not wear a lot of eyeshadow because it always get everywhere!
26 // Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
I have oily lids so this is a must for me and I usually use whatever concealer I have on the go. Nothing fancy.
27 // How many hair products do you use on a typical day?
I do not wash my hair everyday. When it is wash day I use 2. One to treat and protect from heat and one to smooth and defrizz. If it is day 2 or 3, I will use a dry shampoo depending on the hairstyle of the day.
28 // What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
Foundation. Than concealer.
29 // Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?
I have, but than again my YouTube Gurus are amazing and I learn a lot from them for Free 🙂
30 // What do you love about makeup?
The power of makeup! The ability to change and create a masterpiece with just simple tools and products. Makeup is fun and a way to express yourself. Hot pink lips or bold red. Cat eyes and smokey eyes. The sky’s the limit when it comes to creating. The best thing is that at the end of the day, it washes off and you get to start fresh the next day 🙂
There you have it Beauties! A little look into my world 🙂 I tag YOU to do the tag!
