The Beauty Tag
Tag posts are some of my favorite to read and write, so I was really happy that Hannah from Floraful.blogspot.com tagged me in the beauty tag! She has a fabulous beauty blog that I recently discovered, so be sure to check out her page if you haven't already :) On with the questions!
If you could have anyone in the world do your make-up who would it be?
Without a doubt Wayne Goss! I have learned so many tricks and tips from his YouTube channel and I think he’d be so much fun to talk to while he did my make-up. I also might choose Tati because she has every product under the sun, but I feel like if Wayne did my make-up it would be life changing.
What's your top make-up tip?
Become a foundation mixologist! Skin feeling dry? Mix a bit of moisturizer in with your foundation. Skin getting pale or tan? Mix a lighter or darker foundation in with your regular one. Skin looking dull? Put MAC strobe cream or another liquid highlight into your moisturizer! I have a few good drugstore foundations in various light and dark shades specifically for this purpose, there's nothing worse than buying an expensive foundation and not being able to wear it.
What's one skincare item you couldn't live without?
This is a toughie—it’s a tie between my St. Ives Apricot scrub and my Curel moisturizer. I'm quite lazy with skincare but my skin can get very dry, especially in the winter.
What are you worst at when it comes to applying makeup?
Definitely eyeliner. Until recently I only wore gel or pencil liners, which I’m okay with, but my liquid eyeliner gets really messy and a wing is practically impossible. Hopefully Hannah’s hack can help with that!
What's your biggest pet peeve when it comes to beauty?
I feel like in the beauty world there is a huge FOMO complex that I and other bloggers/vloggers get where if we don’t have that one product that everyone is raving about we are missing out on something massive.
Another pet peeve, now that I think about it, are certain makeup trends. Obviously this is just an opinion and you should do whatever makes you happy, but there are a few trends that I really dislike such as excessive contouring and the “Instagram Eyebrow”.
What's your favorite makeup era?
This is going to sound so strange but I have a love/hate relationship with make-up from the early 2000’s. Orange spray tans, blue eyeshadow, tons of glitter…I wouldn’t wear it myself but I find it fascinating that ten years ago that was in style!
What's your guilty pleasure product?
I’m not sure any make-up product that you use is a “guilty pleasure” but I’d say any nude lipstick, especially a high-end one. A lot of the nudes I have seem like the exact same shade, but I keep buying them nonetheless.
What's your "underdog" product?
I’d say the Maybelline Colossal mascara, which I’ve featured a lot on my blog. It makes my lashes look super long without making them clump! No one seems to talk about it, which is a shame, but it has been out for a few years so maybe the hype isn’t around it anymore.
What's your favorite make-up product of 2015?
Oh wow. This is a hard one. I think I will say my MAC Studio Sculpt foundation because I wore it almost every day since I got it. I had a really bad experience with my previous foundation, which was cakey and the wrong color for me, so this helped my skin look better than it had in ages!
Again, thanks to Hannah for tagging me! I hope you enjoyed this post. I will tag anyone who wants to do the Beauty Tag with a special emphasis on...
