Forty Beauty Questions Tag

If you know me you'll know that I love beauty tags! Thanks to Kathy from for tagging me in this, we have a lot in common so you should check out her answers as well!


How many times do you wash your face per day? 
Only once, usually at night. Any more than that and I find that my skin gets dry.

What skin type do you have?
Combination/dry, but in the summer it can be combination/oily.

What is your current facial wash?
The Biore Charcoal Cleanser.

Do you exfoliate?
Yes, once or twice a week!

What brand do you use?
I like the St. Ives Apricot Scrub for a deep scrub or the Alba Botanica Pineapple one for something more gentle.

What moisturizer do you use?
I'm using a sample of the Hey Honey 24Seven moisturizer but it's almost gone and I'm debating whether to purchase the full size or go for something new!

Do you have freckles? 
Yes, but they're hard to see.

Do you use eye cream?
I have one but I forget to use it a lot!

Do you or did you have acne prone skin? 
Thankfully, no.

Did you ever use Pro active?
No, I've never tried any specialized cleansers.


What foundation do you use?
I use a couple of different ones but my favorite is the MAC Studio Sculpt.

How about concealer?
I like the Bareminerals Bareskin for blemishes and the Rimmel Wake Me Up for the undereye area.

Do you know your undertone color?
I think it's warm, but I'm not positive!

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I've never tried them, I think it's too much maintenance for me!

Did you know you're supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, I don't always follow the rule though.

What brand of mascara do you use?
Maybelline makes my favorite mascaras! The Colossal mascara is my holy grail.

Sephora or MAC?
Sephora! I like MAC products but you get more variety and more brands with Sephora.

Do you have a MAC pro card?
No, I've never heard of that haha.

What makeup tools do you use in makeup application?
Mostly brushes, I haven't liked the sponges I've tried.

Do you use makeup primer for your eyes?
Only if the shadows I'm using have a lot of fallout.

What about the face?
I recently started using the Nyx Angel Veil and I love it.

What is your favorite eyeshadow? (color or shade)
For single shadows I love NARS Himalia or Loreal's Amber Rush. My favorite palette at the moment is the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons, and I think I like Tarte's formula the best.

Do you use pencil or liquid liner?
Both! For natural days I like to line my upper lash line with a pencil and when I have time I like to try a wing with liquid liner.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Honestly, I don't think I ever have. I only wear eyeliner on the upper lash line. One time I forgot to shut my eye when applying foundation and I poked my eyes with a kabuki brush, if that counts.

What do you think of pigment eyeshadow?
I only have one or two pigment shadows. I prefer palettes.

Do you use mineral makeup?
I don't think so, I have some Bareminerals products but I'm not sure if they're all considered mineral makeup.

What's your favorite lipstick?
MAC's Honey Love is my go-to nude.

How about lipgloss?
I'm obsessed with Maybelline's Stripped Down.

What is your favorite blush to use?
I love Kat von D's Shade and Light blush in Mickey and Mallory!

Do you buy makeup on eBay?
Yes, I've only had one bad experience. I think the biggest issue is with popular items like the Naked palettes, NARS Orgasm blush, etc where there could be a market for fake items.

Do you like drugstore makeup?
Yes! They're a bit more hit and miss than high end products, in my opinion, but they can be amazing and much more affordable.

Do you go to CCO's (Cosmetic Company Outlets)
I've never heard that term before so I'm going to guess that I haven't.

Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?
A little, but not seriously.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I don't think so, unless it's on other people or I'm doing winged liner.

Name a makeup crime you hate?
Over-tweezed eyebrows. I never say anything but...yikes, I've seen some unflattering looks.

Do you like colorful shades of makeup or neutral shades?
I like a mixture. If I'm doing a bright lip I keep the eyes neutral and vice versa. I definitely go for more neutral looks!

Which celebrity always has great makeup?
I love Phoebe Tonkin's makeup and Taylor Swift's!

If you could leave the house wearing just ONE makeup item what would it be?

Could you ever leave the house without makeup on?
Yes, if I don't have time to get ready or I'm going somewhere where makeup would get ruined anyway like the beach or the pool.

Do you think you look good even without makeup on?
I guess so! It depends how my skin is behaving and if I'm allowed to do my hair in this hypothetical situation.

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
MAC can be overhyped but I think they have great lipsticks, foundations, highlighters, powders, eyeshadows, etc so overall they do well in every department whereas some other brands only have good face makeup or eyeshadows.

What do you think of makeup?
I love it! I always look forward to applying it every day and I love reading about it, talking about it, watching tutorials, shopping for's like a hobby of mine!

If you want to answer these questions then consider yourself tagged, and let me know in the comment because I like reading them as much as I like writing them!
