The beauty tag

Hey guys, today I'm going to fill in the 30 question beauty tag so you can find out a little bit more about me.

1. Do you remember your first makeup item?
I'm pretty sure it was a clear mascara from MUA which I still have to this day.

2. Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications? 
One that volumises and lengthens whist also making them look thicker. But I haven't found on that does all of this yet.

3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?
Full coverage foundation is a must for me.

4. Favourite high end brand?
Definitely Mac, especially the lipsticks!

5. What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t? 
Nars, I think the packaging looks so sleek but I am still yet to try it.

6. Favourite drugstore brand? 
Rimmel or Makeup Revolution.

7. Do you wear fake eyelashes?
No but I would really like to get in to them.

8. Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
Foundation, naturally my face is quite pale and blemish prone so I don't feel comfortable without foundation on.

9. What is your most cherished beauty product?
My Mac lipsticks I think, I only have a few but I really love them.

10. How often do you shop for makeup? Do you like to pick up an item here and there or get loads of goodies at once?
It varies really, although I rarely make big purchases of makeup. More like little bits here and there.

11. Do you have a beauty budget or do you spend freely? 
I don't have a budget but I get to a certain amount of money and just won't spend any more until my bank balance goes up a bit. 

12. Do you utilise coupons, reward cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
I use coupons where I can and I also have beauty cards for Boots and Superdrug that I collect point 

13. What type of products do you buy the most? 
Probably face products as in bronzers, blush and powder.

14. Is there a brand that you absolutely cannot stand?
Not any that I can think of in particular.

15. Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulphate?

16. Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup? 
Superdrug because I can get Makeup Revolution from there. Or Debenhams if I want some high end products.

17. Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
I like to try out new things but not to often so as not to upset my skin.

18. Favourite bath and body brand? 
Soap and glory.

19. If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose?
I think it would be Mac.

20. What brand do you think has the best packaging?
Urban Decay as I think the Naked Palettes look so pretty.

21. Which celebrity always has great makeup? 
Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne. 

22. Do you belong to any online makeup communities?

23. 3 favourite beauty gurus?
Cathleen lights
Vivianna does makeup
Emily Canham  

24. Do you like multifunctional products like lip and cheek stains? 
I've never actually tried any but they sound great.

25. Are you clumsy when putting on makeup? 
Not particularly but I do poke myself in the eye with the mascara wand every now and then.

26. Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
The Mac paint pot in painterly.

27. How many hair products do you use on a typical day? 
Usually about 1-3.

28. What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?

29. Do you ever consider taking makeup classes? 
I've never really thought about but I'm hoping to do Beauty therapy at college and that course includes makeup and makeup application. 

30. What do you love about makeup? 
How it can really transform you and you can create so many different looks with it. 

So that was my take on the 30 questions beauty tag. If you guys do this make sure to let me know so I can check it out. Thanks for reading.
