Today I’m here with a very cool tag. Firstly, I would like to thank lovely Kay from ShoesAndGlitter for tagging me. Please do check out her blog, since her photos are stunning and she writes in a very passionate manner about makeup and beauty. I’m sure you’ll love her.
Now onto today’s tag. I didn’t do these before, because I didn’t really have much to say, so I decided not to do them. However, this one seemed really fun, and after almost a year of blogging, I feel like I have a bit more to say. Now onto the questions!
If you could have anyone in the world do your makeup, who would it be?
Like Kay, I’m not really into makeup artists. If you told me to name a few, I probably wouldn’t be able to. It’s simply not something I’m interested in. However, I’ve watched a fair share of YouTube videos, and I would really like it if Tati did my makeup. I think she is super talented and amazing! She is actually the reason I wanted and got my Urban Decay Vice 4 palette (review here).
What’s your top makeup tip?
If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I’m all about eyeshadow, and colourful ones, too. That’s why I think that my top makeup tip has to be around that. My tip is applying white pencil underneath eyeshadow, and it will make even more vibrant and it will pop. Our skin has its own colour and its undertone, which can affect the colour of the eyeshadow and either change it, or tone it down. I talked about this in my Pinterest hacks post here.
What one skincare item could you not live without?
Oh, I’m with Kay on that one. I could not live without my Garnier Micellar water. I think it’s the most amazing makeup cleanser, and it moisturizes at the same time. I’m using my second bottle right now, and I will definitely keep repurchasing!
What are you worst at when it comes to applying makeup?
Oh, this one is a no-brainer. Applying eyeliner has always been and probably always will be the biggest issue for me. I’m not saying I’m perfect with everything else, but I have grown and learned a lot of things regarding face, eyeshadow, brows, everything, but eyeliner is just not working. Even though my line is straight now, my wings are never equal, but, frankly, I don’t care. I still have fun doing it 😀
What’s your biggest pet peeve when it comes to beauty?
I am never going to top Kay’s answer, because I do have some 😀 I absolutely agree that makeup is all about making yourself more comfortable and confident, and I would never tell someone they didn’t do their makeup right. If someone put effort and did their own makeup, which they’re proud about, no one has the right to tell them it’s bad. However, I really hate seeing light eyeshadow and no mascara. It’s definitely a pet peeve and I can’t help it. The eyeshadow usually ends up on the lashes and the eyes look so small and not defined. Stop doing that 😀
What’s your favourite makeup era?
I can’t say, really. I love pin up, but there was no eyeshadow back then 😀 Well, there was, but the staple look was beautiful winged eyeliner (which I can’t do) and red lip. I guess I’d say the 80s, since there were so many colours 😀 80s are my favourite era anyways, especially when it comes to clothes and music, so I’m going to go with that.
What’s your guilty pleasure product?
Oh, this one is a no brainer, too, since I don’t have many high end products in my collection. It’s my Urban Decay Vice 4 palette. I still don’t want to use it sometimes in order not to use it up too soon 😀 I know it’s going to take forever to use 20 super pigmented eyeshadows, but that’s how my brain works 😀 It’s mostly for special occasions.
Another one would have to be my Benefit Hoola kit, which was not cheap and, even though I do love some products in there, some were quite disappointing 😀
What’s your ‘underdog’ product?
This one is probably the hardest question in this tag for me. I have to say I’m not sure I have one. I love discovering drugstore products, and most of them are really cheap. The ones that work really well I’ve been repurchasing for ages and will continue to repurchase. I guess the one I discovered by accident and ended up loving so much would be my Alverde eyeliner.
What’s your favourite makeup product of 2015?
Have you guessed by now? It’s my Urban Decay Vice 4 palette, of course. This past year I’ve bought quite a lot of makeup, mostly because of this blog, but this product came out last year, I really wanted it and I got it.
And that’s it for this tag! I would like to encourage all of you to answer these questions. Either in the comments or on your own blog, but just to tag some of you, I would like to tag:
Thank you for reading!
See you soon x
