TAG: 40 Beauty Questions

I stumbled upon one of these TAG posts a while back and thought it’d be a great way to share more about me. The 40 Beauty Questions focus on makeup and skincare. I’ve enjoyed learning about others’ beauty routines and skincare regimes. If you’d like to participate, just copy the questions and share your answers with your readers! I would love to tag FlairChick and ClassicLove1 – if you haven’t checked out their blogs, make sure you do!

Skincare

How many times do you wash your face daily?

I use micellar water to cleanse my face twice a day. Once after I wake up and once before I go to sleep.

What skin type do you have?

Dry.

What is your current facial wash?

Water Boost Sensitive Skin Micellar Cleansing Water – This has been lovely on my skin. I also sometimes use the Garnier Micellar Water.

Do you exfoliate?

Not really. Only on rare occasion when I’ve received exfoliating samples from beauty box subscriptions.

What brand do you use?

I recently received the L’Oreal Paris Skincare Pure Sugar Scrub Smooth & Glow complimentary from Influenster. And the first time I used it was a couple of days ago, and I definitely felt an improvement on my skin.

What moisturizer do you use?

Pond’s Dry Skin Cream. I started using this when I moved to Oregon and it has been the best thing for my skin. Oregon has a drier climate than what I’m used to, so it was necessary for me to switch things up.

Do you have freckles?

Nope.

Do you use eye cream?

Sometimes. I have a deluxe sample of the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Cream. I use it before I apply my makeup alongside my moisturizer.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

Fortunately, I was very lucky and did not get acne during my teenage years. I can get a spot or two around my period, but not always.

Did you ever have to use Pro-Activ?

Nope.

Makeup

What foundation do you use?

The IT Cosmetics CC Cream is my go to foundation. Some other favorites are NARS Sheer Glow and Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless.

How about concealer?

NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer is my absolute favorite. I use it alongside the Make Up Forever Ultra HD Color Correcting concealer.

Do you know your undertone color?

Not really. I’ve been told I’m quite neutral.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?

I think if done right they can look absolutely lovely.

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

Yes, yes, and yes. I sometimes do switch it up, and I have some mascaras that dry out quickly so they don’t even make the three month mark.

What brand mascara do you use?

I love mascara so I have a couple of favorites. The Maybelline mascaras are amazing. I love the Lash Sensational and Big Colossal mascaras. Another new favorite is the Essence Volume Stylist mascara.

Sephora or MAC?

Sephora.

Do you have a MAC pro-card?

Nope, and I have no idea what that is.

What makeup tools do you use in makeup application?

My go-to is the original beautyblender. I think it really does give a flawless look. For powder products I use RealTechniques brushes or EcoTools brushes.

Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?

No. I tried the Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion, but it just didn’t work for me. I usually just put some concealer.

For the face?

Yes, I love the Too Faced Hangover Primer. Recently, I picked up the Smashbox Primerizer.

What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?

Any bronzer/copper color.

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?

Depends on what it’s for. I use pencil eyeliner for my waterline and to tightline. When it comes to liquid eyeliner and winged eyeliner, I’m not the best, but I try.

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

Not too often. I actually stab my eyes with the mascara wand a lot more than I do with the pencil.

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?

I’ve actually never tried any.

Do you use mineral makeup?

I wish I knew more about this, but not really.

What is your favorite lipstick?

So many! I recently shared my favorite fall shades and these really are my go-to year long.

How about lipgloss?

I don’t wear lipgloss very often, but my favorite is Buxom’s White Russian.

What is your favorite blush to use?

Glossier Cloud Paint in Haze. (full review)

Do you buy your makeup on ebay?

No.

Do you like drugstore makeup?

I do! I wish there was more freedom to test products, be able to swatch them, and find the right shade.

Do you go to CCO’s? (Cosmetic Company Outlets)

Nope.

Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?

Totally! I went to a couple of Sephora in-store classes and really enjoyed them. Since moving to Oregon, the only Sephora in my city is Sephora inside JC Penny, and they don’t offer the same services.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?

Sometimes, but I try not to be. If I know I don’t have much time, I stick to the basics and not try anything too crazy.

Name a makeup crime that you hate?

Thick foundation. I just don’t think it’s necessary.

Do you like colorful shades of makeup?

Yes! Especially a nice, bold lipstick. For the eyes, I usually stick to more warm tones.

Which celebrity always has great makeup?

Selena Gomez or Mila Kunis. Love their looks!

If you could leave the house using just ONE makeup item, what would you use?

I hate this question! I think I’d have to say mascara.

Could you ever leave the house without makeup on?

Yes. It really depends on where I am going, and I try to do it more often.

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

Sometimes. I think we all struggle with self-love, but it’s important that we appreciate who we are and how we look.

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?

Tarte Cosmetics.

What do you think of makeup?

There’s nothing more relaxing for me than sitting on my bedroom floor and doing my makeup while I watch some YouTube. I think it’s important we love ourselves no matter how we look, so I do my best in not relying 100% on makeup. But makeup makes me happy, and I love doing it, wearing it, and writing about it.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the 40 Beauty Questions TAG. I really loved thinking about these and sharing them with you.

  • New #dermae goodies! And #texturetuesday if you swipe left ⬅️ I have been loving trying out new skincare, especially moisturizers and anything hydrating. I got sent two @dermae products, both with anti-aging qualities. How do you feel about anti-aging skincare?
🍃 The Advanced Peptide and Collagen Moisturizer helps soften and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Also, includes antioxidants to help support healthy collagen. Even if you are young and don’t have visible wrinkles, it is super important to be preventive! I haven’t used this one yet, but it felt really nice on my hand and I can’t wait to use it.
🍃Also received the Firming DMAE Eye aloft. This cream lifts, firms, and tightens the delicate eye area. It has #hyaluronicacid which infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture. I have used this a couple of times and really like the way it feels. While it isn’t super heavy, it does feel really hydrating.
Thank you so much #dermaesocial 🙏🏼

Productos nuevos para probar de @dermae! Su hidratante que ayuda a suavizar y disminuir la apariencia de arrugas. Nunca es muy temprano para empezar a prevenir. Y el segundo producto es su crema para la ojos que hidrata, afirma, y levanta la delicada área de los ojos. El #contornodeojos ya lo he usado un par de veces y me ha gustado mucho lo hidrata que hace ver las ojeras.
  • It’s a new week and I am still dealing with my cold 🤦🏻‍♀️Maybe I’ll be cured before the end of the year 🤞🏼What is one thing makeup/skincare related that you struggle with? Something you can’t make look right. For example, for me it is concealer. I have tried so many different things (still testing some), but this is the one area of my face that looks the worst at end of the day. I also feel like it’s a very important one as I want to make sure I get those under eye circles covered, but don’t want it to look cakey. Let’s help each other out! Give me your concealer tips and I’ll try to help you! 👇🏼

Una nueva semana y yo todavía con gripa 🤦🏻‍♀️A lo mejor para el fin de año ya estoy mejor 🤞🏼Cuál es un paso en su rutina de maquillaje/cuidado de la piel con la que tienen dificultades? Que no logran que se vea bien? Por ejemplo, para mi es el corrector para tapar las ojeras. Siempre me parece que es lo peor que se ve al final del día. Quiero asegurarme de que estoy tapando las ojeras pero no quiero que el area se vea pesada. Denme sus tips y ayudémonos! 👇🏼

  • Happy #Sunday! A little #throwback to the end of the summer when I had a fresh tan (that has now faded) and was playing with the @hourglasscosmetics #scatteredlight shadow in Smoke. Only used some bronzer and the #hourglass shadow to add a little something. Love how easy these were to use. I had no trouble with fallout throughout the day or longevity.
•
I hope you all had a very relaxing weekend ♥️
•
Feliz Domingo! Esto fue al final del verano cuando todavía estaba bronceadita y estrenaba la sombra de @hourglasscosmetics en el tono Smoke. Son súper fáciles de usar! Yo no tuve ningún problema durante el día, al final se veía igual que apenas la apliqué.
•
Espero todos hayan tenido un buen fin de semana ♥️
  • Happy Friday! I hope you’re on your way to a lovely, relaxing weekend. Any plans? I will be doing homework and playing with some makeup. These are all products I have been using for a while now and love. Still obsessed with the @thrivecausemetics eyeshadow palette. The quality is amazing and you really don’t need anything more. Can’t go wrong with the @marcbeauty bronzer. It has to be one of my all-time favorites. @maybelline has some of the BEST mascaras and the @beccacosmetics highlighters are the most beautiful.
•
Feliz Viernes! Espero se estén preparando para un fin de semana súper relajado. Estos son todos productos que he usado ya un tiempo y todos me encantan. Les súper recomiendo las sombras de #thrivecausemetics. La verdad que no se necesita más. Los polvos bronceadores de #marcbeauty son de los mejores que he usado.
  • #SaturdaySkinGiftedMe What’s the last skincare you tried? A little skincare, a little newness. The @farmacybeauty Green Clean is my favorite way to take off my makeup. I then use the @freshbeauty Soy Face Cleanser.  their Peel Gel - and I really liked how gentle it was. My skin was not red afterwards and it is just a very satisfying feeling. I would only do this maybe once every couple of weeks but it is a nice complement to my routine.
•
NEW - the @fur_you Silk Scrub (gifted). This is a gentle exfoliant to be used 2-3 times a week on your body. It can also be used as a mask, but I see myself using it after I shave. I’ve only tried it on my hand so far and I was very impressed by how gentle it was. It didn’t feel scratchy. And I LOVE the packaging. It is so practical and hygienic.
•
Productos para la piel! Para quitarme el maquillaje uso #GreenClean de @farmacybeauty seguido por el #soyfacecleanser de #freshbeauty. Una nueva adición es el exfoliante de #furyou para el cuerpo. Ya lea contaré qué tal!
•
@sephora @saturday_skin #sephora #saturdayskin #OctolyFamily
  • Sharing an #motd today! If you’re not familiar with @colourpopcosmetics, they have amazing quality eyeshadows and so many eyeshadow palettes to choose from. They also always have sales going on and just amazing quality. Other great #drugstorebeauty products include the @physiciansformula #butterbronzer and #butterhighlighter. The bronzer is so good and they released new shades this year. The @lorealmakeup lumi glotion is amazing if you like the glowy makeup look. It is a dupe for the #charlottetilbury Hollywood flawless filter.
•
What are your favorite drugstore makeup products?
•
Si no han escuchado de #colourpopcosmetics, esta marca es súper económica pero la calidad es súper buena y vale la pena. Además tienen una gran seleccion de productos. Otros productos de farmacia que son súper buenos, los polvos bronceadores de #physiciansformula.
