1. What skin type do you have?
I would say I have a combination of both dry and Oily. I am more dry along my forehead, my cheeks and my chin. I am most oily around my nose. Before I apply makeup I make sure to moisturize my dry spots and add primer along my oily parts.
2. What is your current facial wash?
I am currently using the Mary Kay Botanical Effects Cleanse formula 3. I absolutely love it and recommend it. It's a cleanser that purifies skin, but also cleanses all your pores and leaves your face feeling silky smooth. It's also wonderful for blemish-prone skin.
3. How many times do you wash your face daily?
Once. Usually when I wake up in the morning.
4. Do you exfoliate?
No. Unfortunately. I need to start though.
5. What moisturizer do you use?
Lubriderm. I began using this moisturizer when I got my first tattoo. I loved the fact that it was sent free and did not leave my skin feeling oily and greasy afterwards. I use it for all my moisturizing needs. I apply it after I shower, after I shave, and when my skin is feeling flaky and dry.
6. Do you use eye cream?
No. I did receive one in one of my Ipsy bags and I haven't used it yet. I think I'll try it out for a bit and do a review on it sometime soon.
7. Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Not to an extreme amount. I was one of the lucky ones that I have pretty clear skin. I get the occasional blemish here and there, especially when my monthly friend comes along, but for the most part I'm always pimple free.
8. What foundation do you use?
Maybelline - Fit Me Foundation (Buff Beige). I got this on a whim. I never ever use foundation. I was at target and honestly picked out the first brand I saw. I tried to match my color as close as possible and I hit it right on the money. I don't use it very often, but when I do, it leaves my skin nice and soft. I'll do a review on it soon.
9. How about concealer?Yes. I can't live without it. Sheercover - Duo Concealer (Light/Medium). I got this in an Ipsy Glambag years ago and have been using it ever since. I use it mostly as an eye shadow primer as well as a cover up for when I have dark circles under my eyes.
10. Do you know your undertone color?
Yes, I am Neutral. Pop Sugar told me so lol. If you don’t know yours, you can check it here.
11. What do you think of false eyelashes?
I love them. I have very thin short black eyelashes. You can see them, but when I triple coat it with Mascara or actually wear fake eyelashes they make my eyes pop. I am all for the fake eyes ladies.
12. Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes. I read that with all the bacteria surrounding your makeup, you should switch it out more often than not. I never follow this rule unfortunately.
13. What brand of mascara do you use?
I have switched my Mascara brand like I switch my panties. I am currently using two different ones. Wet & Wild Max Volume Plus Mascara. It gives my eyelashes the extra push and volume it needs. It leaves them very dramatic but with no clumps. I also use Lancôme Hypnose Doll Lashes. The tip goes from estra thick to thin and is perfect for the cat eye look.
14. Eye liner pencil or Eye liner liqud?
That's a tough one because each of these products do different jobs. I like using an eye liner pencil for my water line and for when I want to add a smudged liner to my top line. I like the liquid liner when I want my eyes to have the precise perfect line.
15. What tools do you use in make-up application?
What don't I use? Eyebrushes, powder brushes, every kind of brushes. Lips stick pencils. etc. etc. My favorite took is my ring finger though. They are the most amazing brush.
16. Do you use make-up base/primer?
Rarely. As stated before I use my concealer as a primer for my eyes. I have base and primer in my makeup collection, but I barely touch them.
17. What is your favourite eye shadow (color or shade)?
The Original Naked Palatte from Urban Decay has my favorite shade. It's Sin. I love that it's a neutral color with shimmer. I can use it as a base, or the main color. It's my absolute favorite! I use it almost everyday.
18. Do you use an eyelash curler?
Sometimes. I don't feel it's always necessary. If you have a great enough mascara it should do the job for you. I also try not using it because sometimes I feel as if it does pull some hair out. Do you know how long it takes eyelashes to grow?! FOREVER.
19. How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Not often at all. Maybe in the beginning when I was first starting with makeup. Now, I can usually use my eyeliner pencil without a mirror. Not that I do, but I'm saying I can if it's the last resort lol.
20. What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I like them. I try to stay clear of them because they are so messy, but they do give your eyes that exact color you see instead of having to cake on layers.
21. What is your favorite lipstick?
Oh this is the easiest question on here. Rebel by Mac. It was my first expensive lipstick purchase and If I could, I would wear it with every outfit!
22. How about lip gloss?
I have a few, but I never use them. I don't like how it leaves my lips wet. I'm more into the matte look and feel. I also don't like that it rubs off quickly and I have to continuously reapply it.
23. Do you ever buy any make-up on eBay/Amazon?
Yes I have actually. The liquid eyeliner I use, I couldn't find at target anymore, so I went online and bought 3 of them. I have a stock that should last me sometime.
24. Do you like drug store make-up?
I live off it. You don't need to buy expensive makeup products to find quality makeup. Hello. Elf. Wet & Wild. Some of the best products I find, are inexpensive and the quality is 10 times better than products with high price tags.
25. Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I've gone to makeup parties where they teach you stuff, but I've never gone to an actual class. That's what YouTube is for. It's free.
26. Hardest make-up trick?
Perfectly matching my cat eyes.
27. Name a make-up crime that you hate.
When people don't outline their lips properly. I understand you want to make your lips look fuller, but I can see where you real lip ends and your skin starts!
28. Crazy colored make-up?
On the weekends yes. I like using blues and reds, and trying out wild colors. I don't do it as often as I would like though. Maybe add that to my makeup goals list.
29. In your opinion. which celebrity always has great make-up?
Angelina Jolie. She always looks so classy and elegant, and most of the time is wearing beautiful nude colors. When she wears red lipstick though. GASP! Her makeup is always on point.
30. If you could leave the house using just ONE make-up item,what would you pick?
Lipstick. You can have nothing on your face and just a little bit of lip color and it will brighten up your face instantly.
31. Could you ever leave the house without any make-up on?
I do it every morning for work. Sometimes I apply a little bit of makeup but rarely. I'm stuck in an office all day. No point in wasting beautiful makeup.
32. Do you think you look good without any make-up on?
Yes. More often than not. I like how I look with makeup on, but I prefer natural beauty. On anyone, not just me.
33. In your opinion, what is the BEST make-up brand?
Now, this is the hardest question on here. It all depends on the products, because some brands are amazing in one department, and average in another. For example I love Mac Lipsticks, and Urban Decays Eye shadows. I love Elfs brushes, and Wet and Wild's eyeliners. It all depends on the product.
34. How many times do you wash your hair per week?
I'm a rare breed. Maybe once or twice a week. I have really strong healthy hair, and I believe that's because I don't apply many products or heat to my hair. After I was I let it air dry, I don't apply unnecessary chemicals. I tend to leave my hair alone and I believe that's why it's as healthy as it is, even with the blonde thing I have going on now.
35. What Shampoo and Conditioner do you use?
Tresseme Moisture Rich Shampoo and Conditioner. This is the only shampoo that makes my hair easy to brush through when it is wet. I have very thick hair that gets tangles easily and with any other shampoo it's practically impossible to brush through.
36. When was the last time you got a haircut?
I cut my tips one month yes one month no when I go get my roots done. My hair grows faster than average, and the more I cut my tips and keep it healthy the more my hair grows.
37. Do you style your hair with heat everyday?
No. Once a week at most, if that. I usually just let my hair air dry. It's pretty straight regularly without applying heat.
38. Have you ever had a bad colouring done?
Once and it was the worst experience of my life. I had dyed my hair black and I was ready to lighten it up again. I went to the same guy I always go to and instead of actually trying to lighten up the color (I understand its a long excruciating process) he just bleached it with highlights. I had black and orange hair. I looked like I was ready for Halloween. I immedietly went home bawling my eyes out and dyed it back to black. A few months later I found this amazing hairstylist who was able to take out all the black color, lightened up my hair and left my hair very healthy. She is still my current hairstylist today.
39. Buns or Ponytails?
Buns. I like pony tails too, but I feel like Buns are classier. I use ponytails when I don't really feel like styling my hair.
40. What hair trend do you like best?
I'm really digging the short hair look. I wish I could rock short hair, but I have a round face with chubby cheeks. Short hair would make me look bigger and wider.
