Tag: 40 Beauty Questions

I love tags; they are probably my favorite type of thing to read on the blogosphere. It makes me feel like we're all sitting on the floor in a kumbaya circle and gabbing. Without further ado:


SKINCARE

-How many times do you wash your face daily? 
Twice
-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
Oily...I think....
-What is your current facial wash?
Biore Ice Fighting Blemish Cleanser (total HG)
-Do you exfoliate?
Yup, about 3x a week
-What brand do you use?
Lush Dark Angels
-What moisturizer do you use?
SkinMD, Johnson and Johnson, or Biore's Dual Fusion
-Do you have freckles?
Nope.
-Do you use eye cream?
Sometimes I use Mario Badescu Hyalauronic eye cream.
-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Ohh yes. Look at the number of Acne-related posts I have under "Categories".
-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
Yes, but I didn't stick to it, so I didn't see improvements. I'm going to repurchase when I've hit pan on my current skincare routine.


MAKE-UP

-What foundation do you use?
MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation, Revlon Colorstay, or Shu Uemura Face Architect
-How about concealer?
MAC Select cover up
-Do you know your undertone color?
Warm
-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
Only used them on my wedding day, but I'm open to trying them again!
-Did you know that you are suppose to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, but I suspect its a marketing gimmick because my mascaras are fine for 6 months.
-What brand of mascara do you use?
Maybelline and L'Oreal
-Sephora or MAC?
MAC. Always.
-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
Nope. 
-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Flat-top mineral foundation brush, eyeliner brush, Maxine's Mop shader, stippler for blush, lip brush for lip balm.
-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Yes, UDPP. 
-For the face?
Nope.
-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I love pale pinks, greens, grays, silvers, and shimmery neutrals.
-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Engraved for waterline, Fluidline Blacktrack for lid.
-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Only when I haven't sharpened in a while!
-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I'd like to buy one and see if I actually use it.
-Do you use mineral makeup?
I did use Mary Kay before, and loved it for a while, but it tended to oxidize. 
-What is your favorite lipstick?
MAC To Swoon For (LE).
-How about lipgloss?
NYX Ice Princess
-What is your favorite blush to use?
MAC Intenso
-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
No.
-Do you like drugstore makeup?
Yes.
-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
HECK YES.
-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
Yes, I'm thinking this summer.
-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Just eye makeup. Rest of me is fine. 
-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Messy liquid eyeliner and lipstick on teeth!
-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
Neutrals for eye makeup, but bright pinks for blush and lips.
-Which celebrity always has great make up?
J Lo back in the day. I could never tell what she was wearing. She's just glowed like a Greek goddess. Oh and Aishwarya Rai of course. 
-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
Foundation. Gotta cover up those imperfections! I can always lick my lips.
-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes. I have to do it when I go camping, which is quite often.
-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Yes, but only if I have just blow dried my hair.
-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
MAC. A lot of product and quality for the price.
-What do you think of Makeup??
Makeup is for enhancing the good and downplaying the bad. A neutral, "naked" face is the best, but I also adore pops of color through colorful eyeliners, bold lip colors, or a lovely blush.

I tag all my readers to do this post. :)

Looks like you are a huge MAC fan!!!!
Good to know all this info. I'm always open to trying new things and it's always nice to learn from other bloggers.

Hi Tris: yes I am *blushes*. Although I'm a bargainista, I sometimes feel its a bigger bargain to buy 1 HG item from MAC than to spend less in a drugstore and be risking failure. This has happened to me especially with gel liners.
