I hope you had a great 4th of July weekend!! I had a great one with family and friends, and yummy food!! :)
Today I wanted to do kind of fun and easy post that will help you ladies get to know me a little better. So stick around to see all my answers to the 30 Beauty Questions Tag.
30 Beauty Questions Tag
1 // Do you remember your first makeup item?
Honestly I’m not 100% sure about this one, but I can probably guess either lip gloss or mascara.
2 // Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
The perfect mascara for me is one that lengthens, and volumizes without clumping and smudging. I have found several great ones, but they aren’t perfect, I’m still on the search for that one! Too Faced Better Than Sex, Benefit’s They’re Real, Elf Mineral Infused.
3 // What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?
I prefer medium to full coverage foundation.
4 // Favorite high end brand?
Estee Lauder and MAC are probably my favorite, but it’s hard to pick.
5 //What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
Laura Mercier, Hourglass, Kat Von D…
6 // Favorite drugstore brand?
This is a hard one… Maybelline, Revlon, ELF, NYX.
7 // Do you wear fake eyelashes?
No I rarely wear them. In fact it will probably be even more rare now because I had a bad experience last time I wore them. Find out more here.
8 // Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
I don’t HAVE to wear makeup to leave the house, but I do like to. So I will say lipstick.
9 // What is your most cherised beauty product?
Probably my Makeup Geek Shadows. They are my favorite shadows I’ve ever used HANDS DOWN.
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 goodness, I shop for makeup way too often. A couple times a week probably (too much right?!). Sometimes I buy one product, sometimes I buy more it just depends on what I’m looking for.
11 // Do you have a “beauty budget” or you spend freely?
I spend pretty freely, but I do try to budget it out in my head before making big purchases.
12 // Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
The main place I use coupons is at Ulta, and now that they have an app it’s so much easier to have a coupon on hand. I am a rewards member with Ulta, and Sephora.
13 // What type of product do you buy the most of?
14 // Is there a brand that you absolutely can’t stand?
Almay, it’s not that I can’t stand it I just don’t use it really ever.
15 // Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?
I actually don’t… maybe I should start!
16 // Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?
Ulta is probably my favorite place to shop for makeup because you can buy high-end or drugstore in the same place. But I really love Sephora too, there is just something about walking into a Sephora that I just know I’m about to drop a load of cash! Haha.
17 // Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
I love trying new skincare products, but because I had oily skin sometimes I do have to be careful.
18 // Favorite bath and body brand?
Soap and Glory for sure!!
19 // If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose?
Urban Decay, I think their products are fun and it seems like they really know what they are doing, so I wouldn’t mind only using their products.
20 // What brand do you think has the best packaging?
I think Benefit Cosmetics has the cutest packaging by far. I just love how fun they make everything look. If we are talking chic packaging I think NARS takes the cake.
21 // Which celebrity always has great makeup?
22 // Do you belong to any online makeup communities?
Bellashoot, MakeupAlley, and a couple other Facebook Groups.
23 // 5 Favorite Beauty Gurus
Jaclyn Hill, Kandee Johnson, Casey Holmes, Tati, MakeupbyTiffanyD
24 // Do you like multifunctional products like lip and cheek stains?
To be honest, not really. I usually find that I only end up using it for just the lips and not the cheeks.
25 // Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I like to think that I’m not. I take my time to put on my makeup and sometimes it can take a while haha.
26 // Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
Yes I use either Urban Decay’s Primer Potion or a Mac Paint Pot. I have oily lids so this is a must for me.
27 // How many hair products do you use on a typical day?
I don’t actually use a lot of hair products. When I get out of the shower I spray in a texturizing beach spray, let my hair air dry. If I need to help some pieces out by curling them I do so, then I use hairspray. If my hair is dirty I will use dry shampoo. That’s typically all I use.
28 // What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
Foundation, then concealer.
29 // Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?
Not really, I have learned a lot from YouTube for free.
30 // What do you love about makeup?
I love that makeup is fun. You can highlight your favorite features and hide your least favorites. You can also change your look every day just by wearing a different color lipstick. The power of makeup can even change how you feel on the inside by giving you that extra boost of confidence. I’m not saying you have to wear makeup to feel pretty because that’s not true at all. But if makeup makes you feel good I say wear it girl!! :)
