Just recently I was tagged by lovely Brenda from Brenda BusyBee blog to do the Makeup Tag ( read hers post here) and as it's always fun to answer some make up questions I've decided to participate.
So here's the questions and my answers...
WHAT FOUNDATION DO YOU USE?
I keep switching foundations and still looking for my holy grail one but recently I picked in Asda, while doing shopping, Rimmel Lasting Finish just because was on offer and I am really loving it. I didn't expect it to be this nice. Keep an eye for the review:)
HOW ABOUT CONCEALER?
For months I've been wearing Rimmel Wake Me up concealer for my under eye area as it covers well any darkness, brightens and doesn't settle into fine lines. If I need to cover any spots I rely on Seventeen Phwoarr Paint which claims to be under eye concealer but for me it's just too heavy but works a treat for covering any redness.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF FALSE LASHES?
I think they add extra glamour to any makeup and I love the idea of using them. Having said that I haven't used any as I just can't be bothered and I'm scared of them, haha
WHAT BRAND MASCARA DO YOU USE?
At the moment I'm using Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and it's the best mascara I've ever used!
SEPHORA OR MAC?
If we had Sephora here in UK I'd happy to shop only there because of the variety of products. And I'm not MAC girl anyway :)
WHAT MAKEUP TOOLS DO YOU USE IN APPLICATION?
I use Real Techniques and e.l.f brushes, but my most loved makeup tool has to be Beauty Blender which is the best for applying foundation and concealer, I can't be without it!
DO YOU USE MAKEUP BASE/EYESHADOW PRIMER FOR EYES?
I normally forget to use one but I always apply some concealer on my lids as well so it acts as a base for eye shadows.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE EYESHADOW?
I don't have one particular favourite eyeshadow but my favourite palette for the last couple of months has been the Makeup Revolution 'Death by Chocolate' palette, the shades are just beautiful and perfect for upcoming seasons. ( Please, excuse the look of the palette but one day, my 3 year old son decided to swatch the eyeshadows, haha, I'm glad it wasn't an expensive palette! )
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF PIGMENT EYESHADOWS?
I never use them but watching makeup tutorials I think they look beautiful on eyes.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVE LIPSTICK?
At the moment my two favourite lipsticks are from Rimmel by Kate #08 - perfect nude and #30 - gorgeous dark plum.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BLUSHER?
At the moment I use every day So Susan Universal Blush, it's such a nice dusty pink/mauve toned blusher with subtle sheen, perfect for Autumn to add healthy glow to my cheeks.
DO YOU LIKE DRUGSTORE MAKEUP?
You should have guessed that one already:) Most of my makeup comes from drugstore and I think that nowadays the quality of drugstore products are on par with many of the more expensive brands.
NAME A MAKEUP CRIME YOU HATE.
There are a few but one of them are not blended out eyeshadows, especially blue/purple shades.
DO YOU LIKE COLOURFUL MAKEUP SHADES OR NEUTRAL ONES?
I like both, I love experimenting with colours but for my every day makeup I normally choose neutrals.
IF YOU HAVE TO LEAVE THE HOUSE WITH JUST ONE MAKEUP ITEM WHAT WOULD IT BE?
COULD YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT ANY MAKEUP ON?
Definitely but normally I don't do it. I feel much better with some makeup on.
IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT IS THE BEST MAKEUP LINE?
I can't give a definite answer, every line has amazing products and some that are not as good and I'm yet to try many of the brands, especially higher end. From drugstore in my opinion, Rimmel is a leading brand.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MAKEUP?
I love makeup! I love how it changes the way we look and feel, how it gives us more confidence. I'm absolutely addicted and I wish I was a makeup artist.
I really enjoyed answering those questions and I hope it was fun for you to read it.
