Lil Miss Chatterbox: 40 Questions =D

Skin care:

How many times do you wash your face daily?

Twice a day, even if If I wear no makeup.. I HAVE to wash my face, tone it, and moisturise..otherwise I can't sleep lol

What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
I have an oily noise.. everything else on my face is dry ..and recently I have been really sensitive to different products grrrr. I don't have an oily t-zone, just an oily nose. Weird!

What is your current facial wash?
Clear and Clear Deep Action Cream Wash - I love the refreshing and tingling sensation; the foamy consistency is also good for my dry skin.

Do you exfoliate?
Yes! I use Clinique 7 day scrub.. not amazing though! On the lookout for a good exfoliator...

What moisturizer do you use?
I use Lush Celestial all year round... it's amazing for dry and sensitive skin. Sometimes I use Nivea Soft Lotion at night time for extra moisture. I also use aloe vera everynight to further moisturise my skin and to reduce any redness.

Do you have freckles?
Yes.. one on the middle of my nose! I hardly notice it, and before I used to get really embarassed of it.. but it makes me different.. and i find it funny hahah! (having said that, noones mentioned it since primary school; kids can be so mean :P )

Do you use eye cream?
No, I broke out to a clinique one (it's my mums' so I can't remember which one it is). I really should be using one.. I'm trying to find one with spf in it. I hate putting creams on my eye area.. it feels weird.. and can cause puffiness (only if you use too much.. use a tiny blob.. too much can be damaging)

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Luckily.. no! However I did break out for like two months this year.. but there were only 3 spots.. I wouldn't really classify that as 'acne'.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?


What foundation do you use?
Even though I have dry skin, I use Mac Studio Fix Powder Foundation; this foundation provides a good coverage and looks amazing on camera! It's great to take on holiday (as it won't melt or get ruined by the heat) and it lasts for ages! However, it does show up my dry patches at times, but there's nothing that the fix + can't fix ;) I'm a C40. I've used NC40, which is ultra white on my skin! C40 is too dark.. I blame the MUA :(

How about concealer?
I use Mac Select Moisturecover. I love this! Excellent cover, does not dry out (great for dry skin). I've got it in NW30. I'm an NC, but due to the blue undertones on my undereyes, the MUA suggested the NW to counteract it; it really works!! I'm looking for a good concealor to hide any redness, I've got redness on the sides of my nose.. and it won't go! I give up lol.

Do you know your undertone color?
I have cool toned skin (I'm a C, or NC sometimes) and my undertone colour is yellow.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I love fake lashes! I only wear them on a night out though.. I personally think that it would take me forevever to wear them to work/uni and I really want to leave them for a night out for that extra touch of glamour! My favourite ones are the Naturalites one.. mainly number 101 and 107. I've tried the Cheryl Cole ones.. they are OK. They make me look really sleepy lol

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, but I don't. This 'rule' doesn't take into account the type of mascara, how many times you use it, whether you use 3 coats or 1, how many times you put the pump in and out, where you store it, the size... and so on. I tend to chuck it away if it gets dried up or smells funny.

What brand of mascara do you use?
I use Dior Show mascara and I love it.. makes my lashes look so big.. but it dries out soo quickly! Waste of money in my opinion. With mascara, I think it's more about the application! If you know how to apply it properly, it makes a massive difference. I spend a lot of time on mascara, trying to coat each lash, and not over doing it. It's definitely worth it in the end. I've tried Benefit Bad Gal lash - overrated!! Drugstores ones are better.

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
Nope - I want one though.

What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
My sigma brushes <3>

Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Urban Decay Primer Potion. Great stuff. Looks pretty. I will not use anything else!

For the face?
I don't use anything, I have dry my makeup tends to stay on all day. I really want to try something for my nose.. however I'm not too bothered about it.

What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I love cream shades for my eye lid, with a yellow based brown shade on the crease! These are great for daytime. I prefer matte shades, I feel that my eyelids are tad wrinkly..and glittery shades accentuate it. For night times I like bronze and khaki shades. Green makes brown eyes POP =D

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Pencil for water line, I hardly use liquid liner. It's all about Gel =D It lasts better and doesn't smudge. I use the Sleek Inkpot. If you are starting out with gel, try this! I use a slanted brush to apply it onto my lids.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
I've done it once this year, I believe.

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?

I love them! I love the Barry M ones! I use them for night time! I prefer them actually to pressed eyeshadows.. I get a better colour payoff. My favourite dazzle dusts are : Rust (even though it's shimmery, it's not OTT), bronze and mint green. I know that they can cause a mess, but if you tap off the excess, they work fine!

Do you use mineral makeup?
I don't.

What is your favorite lipstick?
Tough one. This is always changing. Right now..ever hip my Mac. This is from the Libery of London Collection. Gorgeous coral colour, makes me look all summery. If you have olive skin tone.. this will suit youu!! It's limited addition though :(

How about lipgloss?
This is such a tough question.I will probably choose Lakme Lipcolour in Vanilla. It is one of the first lipglosses I bought, and it's a gorgeous nude with specks of shimmer running through it. It smells amazing, or a sweet vanilla essence (even better than Mac) and is severely underrated! I have yet to meet someone who owns it too! This is great if you're wearing heavy eye makeup and want to tone down your lips without looking like a ghost.

What is your favorite blush to use?
Benefit Dallas - expensive, inconvenient packaging, but apart from that.. it's a gorgeous pink colour that looks great on different skin tones. If you have fair skin, you could wear this as a bronzer, I'm in the middle I guess, and I wear it as a blusher, if you have darker skin.. it might not show up that much (it doesn't on my sister anyway and she's much darker than me.. shes an nc 44). Pinks generally do not suit me, but this colour is the one I use for night time and day time.

Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
I used to buy Dior Mascara from there. I'm very precise though, I read the feedback from previous buyers to ensure I'm getting a real product! I want to buy makeup samples from there.. could help me decide whether I would want to buy the full product? I've bought some fake lashes from ebay.. got 40 lashes for 3 pounds. I will be elaborating on these!

Do you like drugstore makeup?
Yes.. Barry M mainly! I like collection 2000, avon (not their lipglosses though).

Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)?

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I'd love to, but I have no time, as I'm either at uni or working in the weekends. For now, I'll leave it to youtube to teach me lol.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Sometimes I don't blend properly, but I have my eagle eyed sister to laugh at me and point out my mistakes.

Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Porn star lips.. by which I mean really dark lipliner compared to a lighter gloss/lipstick. Not very lady like!

Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I like neutral ones. Colourful ones are ok, but they don't really suit me. Green looks ok on me but I prefer bronze and brown; you can wear them well in a professional environment too.

Which celebrity always has great make up?
I love Kim Kardashion. I know it's super caked up, but that's how I like it on her. She always looks immaculate. I also like Jlos makeup.. she just glows.

If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
Probably concealor for redness and dark circles.

Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
I've done it everyday for the past 4 weeks (apart from Saturdays when I go to work) because I've been studying at the library due to my lovely long easter holidays. I can do it, it is tough though and I feel insecure, but I save loads of time in the morning and I save my makeup remover wipes lol.

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
To be honest, I don't. My eyes are really small and I like to define them. However I don't think I look horrid either. I just prefer to apply makeup, I feel more confident!

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I haven't tried that many. I would say Mac because I do have a lot of great products from there. Having said that, I have had quite a lot of misses with Mac. For drugstore I would say Barry M. Their colour range is amazing and I love their nail polishes too. Pity about some of the lipsticks!

What do you think of Makeup?
I love it. I love it soo much that I even have my own makeup blog about it. I love the whole process of looking at it, purchasing it, trying it on, taking photos and so on! When I was a child, I would sneak into my mums room and try on her lipstick! I've always been super girly! I wasn't allowed to wear it at high school because I school I went to was very strict, but I started experimenting after high school, and mainly wore eyeliner to accentuate my eyes. Now I've tried out different aspects of it, and im LOVING IT =D
