TAG - 40 Beauty Questions

God, it's been so long since I've posted! Ack! I've almost been overwhelmed with ideas, and I've been taking loads of photos for posts, but I've just been lazy, I suppose. :( Anyways, here I am again to talk about beauty stuffs. Yay!


-How many times do you wash your face daily?
Once in the shower during the day and remove my makeup at night with Soap & Glory's Off Your Face wipes. (I really hate washing my face at the sink because I hate water running down my arms and splashing on the mirror! haha)

-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)

-What is your current face wash?
Dark Angels by Lush. I also use MAC's Cleansing Oil and good ol' Cetaphil (generic versions are fine, too).

-Do you exfoliate?

-What brand do you use?
Ocean Salt by Lush at the moment. But it's really rough so I have to be gentle!

-What moisturizer do you use?
Olay's Daily Regenerist Serum.

-Do you have freckles?
A few. My mom's a natural redhead.

-Do you use eye cream?
Not regularly.

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
I did as a teen. I still have some scarring from it. :\ My skin's pretty clear now (thanks partly to oral contraceptives!), aside from two huge monsters that popped up on my chin yesterday that I suspect are from using MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation. NEVER AGAIN! (Why didn't I listen to the other beauty bloggers??)

-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
No. I really don't like them as a company, just because it seems all they care about is celebrity endorsements! :P


-What foundation do you use?
YSL Teint Resist. I used MAC Studio Fix Fluid a few times this month (I wanted to try it out for myself despite some bad reviews I'd read) and I LOVED it.... until it broke me out! Does anyone know of a brand that offers the same coverage/finish without the breakout issues? I'm NW20, if that helps!

-How about concealer?
MAC Studio Finish concealer. Worked SO WELL to cover those nasty bumps their foundation gave me yesterday! :P

-Do you know your undertone color?
Blue veins, so cool-toned.

-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I have some but I've never used them! I need to try them!

-Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, but I have so many that I just can't bear to throw any away! If they feel crusty or smell off, I'll toss 'em!

-What brand of mascara do you use?
YSL Mascara Singulier is my current fave. I also love Lancome Hypnose Drama and CoverGirl Lash Blast.

-Sephora or MAC?
I can't choose!

-Do you have a MAC Pro card?
I wish!

-What makeup tools do you use in makeup application?
Brushes and sometimes fingers.

-Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
Yes -- MAC's Paint Pot in Painterly is my everyday.

-For the face?
I think facial serum doubles as a primer -- but I don't use a primer intentionally. :)

-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
At the MOMENT, it's this combo: Tarina Tarantino's Cord on the lid and under the eye, MAC's Black Tied in the crease/outer corners.

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Either Smashbox's Heartbreaker Liquid Liner (amazing) or MAC's Blacktrack Fluidline for the winged look on the lashline; pencil liner (fave is MUFE's Aqua Eyes in 18L) below the eye.

-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Never. More likely to poke myself with mascara -- it burns!!

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?

I like them but I rarely use them. They're too much work/too time-consuming, for everyday.

-Do you use mineral makeup?
I used to use BareMinerals and Maybelline's mineral powder foundation, but since I've gone makeup-obsessed, I love my liquid foundation! I set my makeup with MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, though.

-What is your favorite lipstick?
At the moment, MAC Viva Glam Gaga, YSL Rouge Pur in 148, and MAC Fleshpot (which is perfect as a base!)

-How about lipgloss?
MAC Glamour for All from the All Ages, Races, Sexes collection.

-What is your favorite blush to use?
Illamasqua Katie, MAC Dainty mineralize blush, Illamasqua Rude cream blush. I use MAC Strada as bronzer/contour.

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
Rarely, and only if it's something I can't get in a store. I bought a Sleek palette, NYX Runway palette, MAC Via Veneto dazzleglass in the past few months.

-Do you like drugstore makeup?
I really like Revlon lately, and Sonia Kashuk makes AMAZING brushes.

-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
I love the CCO! I have two right by me, but I rarely go. I tend to shop with specific things in mind, so the CCO is kind of scary -- I can't plan ahead!

-Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?
I would love to.

-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Not at all -- I'm too much of a perfectionist!

-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Lipliner that's shades darker than the lipstick/gloss. Drawn-on eyebrows.

-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I love brights in theory, but I tend to stick to neutrals, just because I think they look better on my face!

-Which celebrity always has great make up?
The Kardashians for sure, except I think Kim wears too much translucent powder under her eyes. Also love Katy Perry and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
I've done it occasionally. But I just feel better overall if I'm wearing makeup. I don' feel fully awake without it!

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Not bad, not great!

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
MAC. So many options!

-What do you think of makeup?
Isn't it obvious? I love it!
