Forty Beauty Questions

I saw this tag on a youtube video and thought it would be a good way to introduce some of my likes & dislikes without having to write an essay about myself. Plus I love reading these kinds of things about other people!

SKINCARE


-How many times do you wash your face daily? Always at night, first makeup removal and then cleansing clean skin. Sometimes I do it in the morning but only if I feel I need it.


-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo) Combination, but not extreme – my cheeks are normal, chin is oily, forehead is both oily and dry. My skin seems dehydrated most of the time which tends to cause dryness and oiliness.


-What is your current facial wash? I use Madara Deep Purifying Foam cleanser.


-Do you exfoliate? Yes, I find it really helps.


-What brand do you use? Mostly I use a liquid exfoliator by Biologique Recherche called P50W but I also like Natura Bisse Glycolics.


-What moisturizer do you use? At the moment it’s Biologique Recherche Creme Dermopurifante, I’ve been using this for about 6 months.


-Do you have freckles? Yep! But pretty faint, I tend to forget I have them now.


-Do you use eye cream? At night I use Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle and for day time I use Natura Bisse eye contour cream.


-Do you or did you have acne prone skin? I do, mostly hormonal.


-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
Never.

MAKE-UP


-What foundation do you use? By Terry Lumière Veloutée in Fair Ivory, I also have Make Up For Ever HD in 110 which I’m trying out.


-How about concealer? Haven’t found one I really like, so I’m just relying on foundation at the moment but I do need to get one. I’m thinking about trying MUFE.


-Do you know your undertone color? I’m pale & pink, so I think that means I’m cool?


-What do you think of fake eyelashes? I love them on other people if they’re done well.


-Did you know that you are suppose to change your mascara every 3 months? I do know that although I tend to stick more to the actual lifespan of the mascara, so I change it when it’s finished.


-What brand of mascara do you use? At the moment I’m using By Terry Mascara Soyeux in black. My favourites are Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill and Dior Iconic.


-Sephora or MAC? Overall Sephora, not crazy about MAC but I like some things.


-Do you have a MAC Pro-card? Nope.


-What makeup tools do you use in make up application? Brushes, sometimes fingers.


-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes? I use Urban Decay Primer Potion, but I think I’ll try Too Faced Shadow Insurance when I’m finished.


-For the face? Face primers don’t seem to agree with me. I love L’Oreal Studio Secrets Resurfacing Primer for oil control but it breaks me out so I save it for special occasions. Most days I use a coloured base to help with redness, By Terry Colour Skin Enhancer in Midnight Mauve.


-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)? I like neutrals, and my favourite brands for eyeshadow are Chantecaille, Giorgio Armani and By Terry.


-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner? I’ve used all different kinds, but my favourite at the moment is cake – Chanel La Ligne.


-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil? Never.


-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows? I always use pressed.


-Do you use mineral makeup? I’ve used Bare Escentuals and it was ok, but irritated my skin a tiny bit so it wasn’t worth it.


-What is your favorite lipstick? My Lips But Better shades, Chantecaille Lip Chic in Camellia, Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani in Beige 100, and Beige 103. For red I like Dolce & Gabbana in Ultra, and bright pinks like Giorgio Armani Lip Wax in 7.


-How about lipgloss? All the Chantecaille Brilliant glosses have a great texture, also By Terry Baume de Rose Crystal gloss, and Korres Cherry gloss in Light Pink 11.


-What is your favorite blush to use? Changes daily! But I like peaches and corals, from Chantecaille, Nars,
and Giorgio Armani.


-Do you buy your makeup on ebay? Nope, I don’t shop on ebay for anything.


-Do you like drugstore makeup? Since I tend to research my more expensive purchases, I’m rarely disappointed in them, and I prefer high end products. Drugstore makeup is more likely to be an impulse purchases that goes unused, but Prestige Total Intensity Liners are probably my favourite.


-Do you go to CCO’s? (cosmetic company outlets) Not very often, there’s none very close.


-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes? Yes, but I don’t think I want to be a make up artist.


-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup? Sometimes with mascara.


-Name a makeup crime that you hate? Too much frost & glitter!


-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones? Neutrals for most, I’ll only wear brighter colours on toes & lips.


-Which celebrity always has great make up? Someone like Jennifer Aniston always looks fresh & polishes and never overdone.


-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use? Mascara, everytime.


-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on? Yes absolutely, but I prefer to have something on. Just a little mascara and blush makes all the difference. Having said that, if my hair is bad, nothing helps!


-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on? Hm, I think I look better with it but I don’t mind not wearing it either. Hard for me to say!


-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line? I have the most from By Terry but every brand has their standout products, so I like to pick and choose what gets a place in my makeup bag.


-What do you think of Makeup??
Love it! I may expand more on this point in a future post when I can get my thoughts together.
