40 Beauty Questions Tag | January 2015

Hello Lovelies,

Today I decided to write (well technically answer) some questions/answers which relate to beauty. I thought this was a good idea as I really wanted to start more beauty related videos/blog posts this year therefore it would be a perfect time to answer some questions relating to makeup and beauty. So lets get started!



-How many times do you wash your face daily? 

I try my best to wash my face properly twice a day however sometimes when I’m in a rush I will use facewipes. Which probably isn’t the best for my skin.

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

I have a combination of dry/oily/normal skin. However my skin doesn’t get oily but if it is/does it’s normally my T-Zone area.

-What is your current facial wash?

I’m currently having a break from using facial wash products on my face as they can contain lots of chemicals and can make my skin worse and because I’m currently on medication for my spots I’ve been told to stay away from the facial washes.

-Do you exfoliate?

Not on my face regularly just because like I said I’m taking tablets and trying to not aggravate my face however I do try and do it once a week.

-What brand do you use?

I mostly use Simple. Literally it’s that simple.

-What moisturizer do you use?

^ Like above, I use the Simple range.

-Do you have freckles?

I have a couple on my nose, I’m sure is purely just because of the sun however they aren’t visible.

-Do you use eye cream?

Not always however I use my No7 beauty serum on my eye area.

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

I never used to however now I do, despite that my skin has improved dramatically since last year.

-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?

Nope, I was looking into it however I saw reviews that people ended up with even worse acne so it’s put me off of using it.


-What foundation do you use?

I use the FIT Me Foundation in shade 120 or the Dream Matte Mousse in Ivory.

-How about concealer?

Not going to lie, I don’t use concealer to be honest I used to have a stick one however it ran out and I never bothered to repurchase one.

-Do you know your undertone color?

I’m a neutral however officially I don’t know.

-What do you think of fake eyelashes?

I think they really enhance some makeup looks however I’m not a fan of ones that look like your eyes are being drowned and look really heavy.

-Did you know that you are suppose to change your mascara every 3 months?

Yeah, I know you’re supposed to change it every so often however I can’t say that I’m the best at doing that. Oops.

-What brand of mascara do you use?


-Sephora or MAC?

We don’t have a Sephora here in England however I am so excited to buy some things there when I go to New York. So just for that sake I’m going to have to go with MAC however I do love MAC. A lot!!!

-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?


-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?

I use my No7 face sponge for my foundation and my three duo-fiber Real Techniques brushes (eye, face and contour).

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?

I use my No7 beauty serum. You can see this on my Everyday Makeup Routines on YouTube (Click the one you want to see below)

First Routine | Second Routine

-For the face?

Again I use the same as above.

First Routine | Second Routine

-What is your favorite eye-shadow (color or shade)?

I love neutral brown shades. I’m a sucker for glittery ones because they make my eyes seem more sparkly. Magical.

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?

Liquid all the way! However kohl on the waterline.

-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?

Not too often, hope I don’t jinx it by saying that!

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?

I think they are great for stage makeup or making your eyes look dramatic, unfortunately I am still yet to try them.

-Do you use mineral makeup?


-What is your favorite lipstick?

MAC – Creme Cup (It’s a Creme-Sheen lipstick) I done a review on it so if you want to read that click HERE

-How about lipgloss?

I’m not a massive fan of lipgloss.

-What is your favorite blush to use?

My cheeks naturally are quite red/pinky therefore I don’t use blush.

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?


-Do you like drugstore makeup?

YES! Definitely. That’s where most of my makeup is from and there’s nothing wrong with it.

-Do you go to CCO’s? (cosmetic company outlets)

I’ve never been.

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?

I would love to however right now I’m happy learning by myself.

-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?

Sometimes. I have a tendency to ALWAYS mess up my gel liner.

-Name a makeup crime that you hate?

I hate when people wear lipstick however it’s out of the lip shape. That really annoys me as well as orange looking skin, when eyebrows are drawn on and look really thick and like really thick and slug like.

-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?

I’m a neutral kind of girl, however I do love making a bold statement with red lipstick.

-Which celebrity always has great make up?

Cheryl Versini Fernandez, her makeup is flawless and looks great. Even though she’s naturally gorgeous but I love how glowy her skin looks, and her eye makeup is always on point.

-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?

Yes. I can’t always be bothered for example school. However when going shopping I love doing my makeup because I like how it enhances my face.

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?

On days I feel like I wouldn’t mind not wearing it but I love the effect of makeup how it enhances your features. However everyone should be comfortable in their own skin and if wearing makeup makes them feel happy and confident I think that’s totally fine. Like ways if you are comfortable without makeup that’s fabulous. It’s about how YOU feel, not other peoples judgement.

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?

I love Maybellines makeup line. It’s always been my favourite.

-What do you think of Makeup?

I love it and I think it’s a great thing as it helps boosts peoples confidence and enhances features already there.
