Beauty Interview

About a month ago the lovely Shannon from Lots of Love, Shannon got in touch with me with a really great idea, she wanted to do a series of beauty interviews with different beauty bloggers and she asked me. I have no idea why anyone would ask me beauty questions but it was so flattering and sounded like a fab idea so of course I said yes. 

I also wanted to share with you guys how I answered her fabulous questions...

1. What is the first piece of makeup you remember owning? 

It has to be a collection 2000 eyeliner pencil. This was the first piece of make-up I really started experimenting with, I definitely when through the grungy teenage phase, where the more black eyeliner I had the better.

2. What is the number one beauty product on your wishlist at the moment?

 I am really in love with the Naked 3 palette, I need it, every bone in my body needs it but I've been very good and not bought it…yet.

3. How many different foundations do you own and which is your favourite? 

To be honest, I only own two right now because I blend them together to create a really nice look. I have the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation which I absolutely love but it’s just a fraction too light for my skin tone so I mix it up with Max Factor Lasting Performance foundation which is really long wearing.

4. What is the type of beauty product you hoard the most?

I have a stupid amount of lip products that I never use, I love lipsticks but can never find the right shade. I rubbish at remembering to re-apply them as well which makes it pointless in me buying them…but they’re just so pretty.

5. How many steps do you have in your morning skincare routine? 

I am very fussy about what goes on my face and actually I choose to use very few products, I love the Simple face scrub but I only use this twice a week, sometimes 3 times if I feel my face needs it. I moisturise every day and night this is very important to me and I use Simple Deep Cleansing face mask once a week. That's it!

Now onto a few quick-fire this or that questions: 

1. MAC or Nars? Nars, I want everything Nars 
2. Rimmel or Revlon? Rimmel, I don’t even own a Revlon product.
3. Mascara or Concealer? Mascara, I would literally be lost without my mascara, I have blonde eyelashes so I look like an alien without it.
4. Skincare or Haircare? Skincare
5. Purifying mask or hydrating mask? Purifying Mask
6. High end or Drugstore? High End though I clearly only have Drugstore products right now.
7. Blog or Vlog?  I love watching vlogs but would never do one so I’m gonna have to say blogs
8. Hair up or hair down? Hair down.
9. Red or Pink Lipstick? Red, though I would never be able to confidently pull off wearing red lipstick
10. Highlight or Contour? Contour, to fake gorgeous cheek bones of course
