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.

  • I don’t think there has ever been a brand I obsessed over as much as I have for @lilahbeauty 😍 This is the most beautiful packaging and presentation I had ever seen. It is a pricey brand, but when you receive the box, open it, and see the little pebble, every penny is worth it. I picked up the Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true, the prettiest #mauve and I am so glad I did. I am still trying it out but there’s no doubt the formula is just as beautiful as the packaging.
•
What’s one brand you’ve been dreaming about trying for a while?
•
No creo que haya otra marca más linda que #lilahbeauty 😍 La presentación y el empaque del producto es hermoso, y hace que todo valga la pena. Esta vez compre el dúo para mejillas y labios, sirve como rubor y labial, en el tono b.true. Aún sigo ensayándolo pero no hay duda de que la fórmula del producto es igual de perfecta que el empaque.
•
Cuál es una marca que han querido probar?

  • @thrivecausemetics is killing it with these amazing releases and I am so happy to be a part of it. This is the NEW Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3. The perfect beginner palette in my opinion and the perfect palette for an everyday look. I love how it has everything you need and these are literally the shades I reach for in every palette I own. Can’t wait to start playing with it and letting y’all know my thoughts. Thank you again to #thrivecausemetics and @karissabodnar ♥️
•
Did you know #Thrive donates one product for every product sold? Have you tried this brand yet?
•
La nueva #paletadesombras de @thrivecausemetics está AQUÍ! Y es perfecta para el día a día. Tiene los tonos perfectos para crear una variedad de looks - estos son los tonos que uso en todas las paletas que tengo y me hace feliz tenerlos todos juntos en una paletita. Si no han escuchado de esta marca, se las recomiendo! Tiene un mensaje y una misión muy linda.
  • Are you lazy? Do you forget everything? Do you only shave exposed leg during the winter? Then you’re just like me and need to check out @sphynx - an all-in-one portable, TSA friendly razor. It comes with a spray, a shave bar, and two razors. They’re all refillable which was my main concern when I received it, but it is so effective. I am not sure if I’d find it practical for a full shave, just because it is really bulky, but if it’s the winter and you missed a spot of exposed leg, this is such a good solution! Thank you to the @yccagency for the opportunity to test it out ♥️
•
Les mata la pereza? Se les olvida todo? Solo se rasuran lo que queda expuesto de la pierna durante el invierno? Entonces son como yo! Tuve la oportunidad de probar #sphynx que es un todo en uno. Viene con un spray, un bálsamo para afeitarse, y dos cuchillas - todo lo que necesitan para afeitarse cuando están de afán o se les ha olvidado. Ademas lo pueden traer con ustedes en el avión ✈️. No se si lo usaría para una rasurada completa por lo que el empaque es tan grande, pero una gran opción para cuando se les olvida algo!
  • [#flowerbeautygiftedme #soldejaneirogiftedme] New products I am trying and testing - See any favorites?
-> the new @thrivecausemetics Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3 is quickly becoming a favorite but I’ve yet to use all the shades.
-> @flowerbeauty Blush Bomb Color Drops in Cinammon. This could be a dupe of the @glossier cloud paints. I really like this shade but I am still making up my mind
-> @soldejaneiro Açaí Body Cream. I’ve already said I really like this. I just noticed it does have a shimmer to it, which I hadn’t noticed before. I don’t mind, but wanted to mention it
-> @lilahbeauty Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true. FINALLY getting to try some #lilahb - the brand with the prettiest packaging
-> @dailyconcepts Jade Roller was so kindly sent to me and I have no idea about the benefits but it feels really nice
•
Productos nuevos que he estado ensayando! Las nuevas sombras de #thrivecausemetics hasta ahora me han encantando. Se ven súper lindas y son fáciles de usar. La crema para el cuerpo de #soldejaneiro como ya les había mencionado me gusta mucho, pero me he dado cuenta que me da a la piel como un brillito entonces lo quería mencionar. Otros que todavía estoy viendo qué tal me parecen! Ven algún favorito?

  • Two new products to try from @dermae and I am so excited! One - the Anti-Wrinkle cleanser which smells amazing. I’ve used it already and so far I really like it. And the Sun Defense Oil-Free Sunscreen. I don’t think it is the type of product I’d use under makeup, but it feels really nice and doesn’t have a strong SPF scent which is usually the case. Have you tried either of these? Thank you to @dermae for gifting these to me!
•
Dos productos para ensayar de #dermae! Uno es un limpiador fácil que ayuda a prevenir arrugas. Huele súper rico y hasta ahora me ha gustado mucho. El segundo producto es un protector solar. No se qué tal se vea debajo de maquillaje, pero me gusta mucho la textura y que además no tiene un olor muy fuerte a protector. Han usado alguno de estos?
