The Beauty Tag

Since I started this new blog I haven’t done a tag so I thought this would be a good one to start with. Lately I have been getting more into beauty and makeup so this seemed like a good fit! There are so many beauty tags like this out there but this one I have modified to suit me a bit better

1. Do you remember your first makeup item?

Probably some lipgloss or eyeshadow that I got for free from a teen magazine.

2. Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?

Hmm I have 3 different ones that I move between and I spoke about all of them over on my everyday makeup post!

3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?

Medium. I have a naturally pink face so I definitely like something that can cover up the redness!

4. Favourite high end brand?

Hmm probably MAC. I don’t use too many high end brands to be honest.

5. What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?

I would love to try any Kylie lip products, Kat Von D, Urban Decay, Chanel and Dior! Actual goals!

6. Favourite drugstore brand?

Probably Essence because they do everything at very affordable prices and their quality is so good!

7. How often do you shop for makeup? Do you like to pick up an item here and there or get lots of goodies at once?

I don’t make a point of going to do a  makeup shop so whenever I go to a shop and see something that I like I buy it.

8. Do you have a “beauty budget” or you spend freely? 

I don’t really have a budget. If I see something that I want and it is a reasonable price then I will buy it.

9. Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?

We have Clicks clubcard rewards points here and I sometimes spend those on makeup.

10. What type of product do you buy the most of?

Probably lip or eye products. They are just all so pretty!

11. Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup?

Clicks and Red Square!

12. If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose?

Probably Essence, mainly because they have pretty much everything and I know their products are good quality.

13. What brand do you think has the best packaging?

This is a toss up between Catrice and Essence but just from my experience. The products are so beautiful! I also haven’t had much experience with high end brands though and I have no doubt that there are some beauties out there!

14. Which celebrity always has great makeup?

Lauren Conrad! She is gorgeous and always looks so put together!

15. Do you use an eye primer?

I don’t actually. I had one but it finished and I have been looking for a new one. What would you recommend?

What are your favourite beauty products? Have you done a tag like this before? Link it below so I can have a look!

    I would have answered the same for most of these questions! I only need a medium ish coverage from a foundation too and my first product was definitely a lip gloss! Lovely tag X

    Haha aw I remember the days of free makeup products with Star Girl and Mizz magazines! A new glittery roll on used to be the highlight of my day haha ? I’ve never tried the brand Essence but I’d really like to, you’ve given it a rave review! I’d really like to try Kat Von D to, especially her eyeliners – they look fab! ?

    I’ve never done a tag, but my favorite items are usually mascara and tinted gloss. I just now learned how to use a full face of makeup so I’m not used to seeing myself in a full face lol.

      I still have a long way to go until I’m going to be wearing a proper fill face haha

    My girl friends are into make up as well and sometimes it just crazy that they tend to spend more time doing their faces than showering. Haha 😀

    Found your blog through FB. Must confess not a makeup person but I love the look of your blog. So pretty and girlie… did you design yourself?

      Thank you so much! I bought the theme from PipDig and then customised it myself 🙂

    I remember there was a little Ralo shop in the same centre my mom did grocery shopping, I used to get a couple lipglosses from there – pretty sure that was my first! They also had Camilla nail polish so obviously I was sold on that 😉
