30 Beauty Questions Tag

October 31, 2014


Hello hello, I have been a little behind on reviews lately (mainly because I haven't been home to take photos, but I will fix that this weekend!), so I thought I would do a random tag! I won't be tagging people, but feel free to do the tag and link it in the comments so I can read your answers!

I might have even done this tag, or a tag like it before... but pffft, if I did it was years ago :P

Ps today is the last day to enter my YouTube giveaway!

1. Do you remember your first makeup item? 
Does nail polish count? I remember buying a bright blue nail polish by Red Earth (I believe the shade was Mars) and I thought I was really cool... this would have been in 1996 :P

2. Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
Lengthen, volumise, separate and curl... yep I want it all! Nope, don't have a perfect mascara but there are a few that come close (Lancome Hypnose Star comes to mind)

3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?
I am actually a medium coverage girl... I have quite a lot of redness that I like to cover and I hate worrying about concealing on work days, so if I can find a foundation with enough coverage to cover most of my flaws then I am happy.
4. Favorite high end brand?
Possibly NARS or MAC... the icing on the cake with NARS have been the release of the Audacious Lipsticks (*drool*) and I love a lot of MAC products (lipsticks, blushes, MSFs, fluidlines, paint pots, pigments)
5. What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven't?
 Burberry and Chanel

6. Favorite drugstore brand? 
BAH this is a really hard question! I would probably have to say Revlon or Maybelline... I love the whole Revlon Colorstay range and the foundation is my recent holy grail for a stay all day at work foundation. I also love the Maybelline mascaras, lipsticks, and Fit Me concealer.

7. Do you wear fake eyelashes? 
Very very rarely, I will at a birthday or a night out... but not day to day.
8. Is there any kind of makeup you can't leave the house without?
I am comfortable leaving the house without makeup (and do so often when I go to the gym/shops/to see family) but if I had to choose two products that would make be feel a lot more confident it would be brows and mascara... then number 3 would be tied with a lip product or foundation/base product.
9. What is your most cherised beauty product?
At the moment my most cherished product is the Lorac Mega Pro Palette as it is AMAZING and limited edition.
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?
I am definitely a makeup grazer... I tend to browse on lunch breaks or after work and I might pick up a new thing here or there. I pretty much only buy a lot of things at once if I am at IMATS or something similar.
11. Do you have a "beauty budget" or you spend freely? 
I spend freely, but I always live off a budget... so when I get paid I transfer money for bills, transfer a little into my savings, pay for petrol/groceries and then whatever I have left over is up to me how I want to spend it (and yes it is often on makeup). So I can either buy a few cheaper things one week or save up my spending money for a couple of weeks and splurge. So yeah, I never set myself a beauty budget, but I shop on a budget in general.
12. Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
Yes, to the extent that I will often see a new product that I want but I will keep an eye out online until it goes on sale.
13. What type of product do you buy the most of?
I am a sucker for lip products and eye shadow palettes
14. Is there a brand that you absolutely can't stand?
ModelCo... I don't even need to elaborate on why I hate that crap.
15. Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?
No, I am not very picky with my makeup... but I do try to avoid high levels of alcohol in my makeup.
16. Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?
Myer... in Melbourne Myer has MAC, Illamasqua, Mecca Cosmetica, Kit Cosmetics and a lot of high end makeup... so it's a one stop shop. Then I might go next door to David Jones to browse (sadly generally not buy) The Balm, Tom Ford and Laura Mercier etc.
17. Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
I have a few core skincare products (mainly products that I know work for problem skin) that I keep in my bathroom all the time, a good example is Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. Then I pretty much mix the rest of it up... having a beauty blog I tend to try new cleansers, moisturisers, serums etc all the time.
18. Favorite bath and body brand?
I would have to say Lush. I am not a mega fan of their face products, but I love their soaps, shower gels and bath bombs.
19. If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose?
BAH! I hate these questions! I would probably say NARS, only because I love their eye shadows, blushes, bonzer, highlighters and lipsticks... I do have the Sheer Glow foundation which I don't adore, but it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if I had to use it every day. I haven't tried any liners, mascaras (do they even do mascaras?) and setting powders... but if I had to only buy from one brand then I wouldn't complain about only using NARS.
20. What brand do you think has the best packaging?
I really like the cute Lime Crime packaging.
21. Which celebrity always has great makeup?
I don't know... I am not a huge celebrity makeup watcher... Maybe Kelly Osborne?

22. Do you belong to any online makeup communities?
Does the blogging community count?
23. 5 Favorite Beauty Gurus
(in no particular order... and my top 5 change regularly)
Lisa Eldridge
Sharon Farrell
24. Do you like multifunctional products like lip and cheek stains?
Nope! I find that they are often good for one thing but not the other.
25. Are you clumsy in putting makeup?
Not generally :S
26. Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
Yes, every time I use eye shadows I will either apply a primer or a cream shadow as a base - powder shadows tend to crease on me without a base.
27. How many hair products do you use on a typical day?
Shampoo, conditioner, hair oil... so 3! Or if I don't wash my hair then just dry shampoo.
28. What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
Foundation... and I don't tend to use concealer every day
29. Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?
Yes! I think it would be super fun! But I would only do it as a hobby... and at the moment I don't have time (or money) just to take a course for funsies
30. What do you love about makeup?
I like that it can help me transform myself depending on my mood.... if I want to go all out and look pretty (like last weekend when I saw my ex - mwhahaha) then I can, but I can also choose to wear a small amount to look professional at work then it let's me do that to! It's all about the confidence it gives people.

So that's the tag! I hope you all have a great Halloween!
