Here are some more questions I found whilst wandering around the internet which I thought I’d answer.
1.How many times do you wash your face daily?
Once, at night when I take my make up off. I cleanse in a morning with Boots No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water.
2.What skin type do you have?
I have combination skin; an oily t-zone and normal rest of face.
3.What is your current facial wash?
Dermalogica Ultracalming cleanser.
4.Do you exfoliate?
I do, once or twice a week depending o whether I remember to or not. I use Dermalogica Thermafoliant. It warms on application which kind of feels weird to begin with.
5.What brand do you use?
I’ve recently started using Dermalogica products and find that they’ve done great things for my skin.
6.What moisturiser do you use?
Funnily enough, a Dermalogica one. It’s the Skin Smoothing Cream.
7.Do you have freckles?
No, but I do have sensitive skin.
8.Do you use eye cream?
I do. I use two actually. One is Dermalogica Ultrasmoothing Eye Serum and also Age Reversal Eye Complex.
9.Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
I got more spots out of my teens than I did during my teens. Now, it’s more or less just hormonal breakouts.
1.What foundation do you use?
I either use Bourjois 123 Perfect or Garnier BB cream. It depends on how much coverage I want one which day.
2.How about concealer?
I love concealer. I use Maybelline Eye Erase concealer under the eyes and Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage on blemishes and if I have particularly bad dark circles.
3.Do you know your undertone colour?
I have a pink undertone colour. It’s pretty hard not to notice it when I have bright red cheeks!
4.What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I love fake eyelashes but I don’t get enough chance to wear them. I prefer the half lashes as I find them easier to apply. And I like the cat eye, elongated effect.
5.Did you know that you are supposed to change you mascara every three months?
Yes I do and that is the main reason that I don’t buy expensive mascara. I like L’Oreal Telescopic mascara the best. And it has to be black or purple.
6.Sephora or MAC?
Sephora has only just started shipping to the UK so at the moment I prefer MAC. I am saving up place a huge order on Sephora though and am really looking forward to it.
7.What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
I use either my fingers or brushes. The brushes I love, that are fantastic value are the Real Techniques brushes. I have pretty much all of them.
8.Do you use make up base/primer for the eyes?
I do as I have oily eyelids. I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance. If I am using something like a Maybelline 24 hour Colour Tattoo I don’t use a primer.
9.For the face?
Yes, I have a couple that I use. I like Maybelline Baby Skin, Benefit Porefessional and Dermalogica primer.
10.What is your favourite eyeshadow (colour or shade)?
I don’t really have one. It depends on my mood. For ease and speed during the week I use neutral colours but if I have longer to spend on doing my makeup, I like to experiment with colour.
11.Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
I use pencil on the waterline or tight line but that’s about it. I don’t like liquid eyeliner. I think it looks too harsh.
12.What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I like the idea of pigment eyeshadows but they are too messy for me to use. For me, the fallout isn’t worth the hassle.
13.Do you use mineral makeup?
I have Bare Minerals mineral foundation which I use if I’m in a real hurry or if I am not doing much but don’t want to scare children with my bare face!
14.What is your favourite lipstick?
If I had to choose it would be MAC Ruby Woo or MAC Rebel. Ruby Woo is a bright red and Rebel is a purple, berry shade.
15.How about lipgloss?
I don’t like lipgloss, it makes me feel like Barbie. And when I had longer hair, my hair would stick to it and then I’d have sticky hair!
16.What if your favourite blush?
Benefit Coralista is my favourite. It’s pigmented enough to show up but you don’t have to use a lot to make a difference. I prefer peach shades than pink.
17.Do you buy your makeup on eBay?
No, I have never bought make up on eBay. I don’t trust it really.
18.Do you like drugstore makeup?
I love drugstore makeup. I tend to buy it more often than high end just because I can try more new things for less money. Some of it is fantastic quality. Bourjois is made by Chanel for instance.
19.Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Generally just wearing so much make up that it enters a room 5 minutes before you.
20.Do you like colourful shades or makeup or neutral ones?
Both. For ease and speed I use neutral shades. For playing and having fun I prefer colourful shades. The longer I have to get ready, the more colourful my makeup is likely to be.
21.If you could leave the house using just one make up item, what would you use?
Mineral foundation over anything else to even my complexion out.
22.Could you ever leave the house without any make up on?
I do. Some days I can’t be bothered to do my hair and makeup and, if I’m not going anywhere important, I’ll quite happily go out without my face on.
23.Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I think I look how I really am when I don’t wear makeup; which is tired and old! Having said that, I’m definitely not one of those people who can’t even go to the shops without my face on.
