If you haven’t already guessed, I was tagged to take part in the Beauty Blogger Tag. I was fortunate enough to be nominated by both Jessica Jade and The Girl With No Face! If you haven’t already, go check out their blogs. They are lovely and they have the blogs to match.
I was asked a series of 10 questions by each lady associated with beauty and blogging with a couple random questions also thrown in.
Since I have quite a lot to get through, let’s get started. Some questions were repeated which is why there won’t be a full 20 answers.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MAKE UP PRODUCT EVER?
My favourite make up product is mascara. I think if you’re having a really lazy day where make up is the last thing you want to put on, as long as you are wearing mascara, you will feel confident and feminine.
WHAT MAKE UP PRODUCTS DO YOU SPLURGE ON?
I would have to say eyeshadow palettes. There is such a wide variety of colours and pigmentations that can be in palettes that I feel you can never really have too many. I think I’m also drawn to the packaging of eyeshadow palettes over any other make up products. I mean, have you seen Urban Decay palettes?
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PERFUME?
Anna Sui – Sui Dreams is my favourite. I have not used this perfume in years as I thought it had been discontinued. This tag made reminded me about my love for the perfume and so I did some browsing and I’ve realised I can still get it. I’m so happy.
DO YOU HAVE A QUICK MAKE UP TIP?
When I’m in a rush and don’t want to leave without contouring my face, I will take a big blush brush, such as the Real Techniques Blush Brush and go in with bronzer in the shape of a ‘3’ around my forehead, down the cheekbone and along the jawline. It takes no time at all.
WHAT IS YOUR GO TO SHAMPOO/CONDITIONER?
Honestly, I don’t have one. I do use PRO:VOKE Touch of Silver occasionally, which tends to be the only shampoo I use again and again. Normally, I just buy what is on offer.
WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO SHOP?
ASOS, ASOS and more ASOS. I think 90% of my clothes are from there.
WHAT IS YOUR MUST HAVE MOISTURISER?
I’m yet to find a must have moisturiser as I’m not great at experimenting with them. Right now I’m using Boots Simply Sensitive Day Moisturiser.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TV PROGRAMME?
Right now I’m enjoying Full House. I don’t have time to sit down and watch anything that requires attention at the moment so Full House is great for throwing on in the background.
I probably watch more documentaries than anything else though.
DO YOU HAVE A PASSION?
I have many interests – fitness, fashion, make up, animals, art – but I’m still searching for that one thing I am really passionate about.
TELL ME SOMETHING RANDOM ABOUT YOURSELF
I once got chased by 2 emus around a petting zoo. I’m now scared of birds.
WHAT IS YOUR ALL TIME FAVOURITE MAKE UP BRAND?
Urban Decay. I’ve already mentioned I love their palettes but everything else in the range is great. Another thing I love are the Primer Potions.
WHAT IS YOUR MORNING ROUTINE?
I don’t have one. My job is shift based so some days I start at 5am and other times I won’t start until 10pm so my morning routine varies greatly week by week.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE DISH?
Definitely a Chicken Bhuna curry, preferably from my favourite local Indian restaurant, Nawaabs.
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB?
If I had the creativity, designing and running my own fashion label would be a dream come true.
WHY DO YOU LOVE BLOGGING?
I love blogging because I get to talk about my interests with people that are also interested and I can communicate with a multitude of people that share the same interests. I enjoy reading other blog posts as it is a way to learn new skills and gain further knowledge in the field. Also, due to working in such a stressful environment, blogging is a nice way to escape from that chaos for a few hours.
WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE BEAUTY YOUTUBER?
I would say she is more of a fashion Youtuber but Victoria from Inthefrow is my beauty/fashion icon. Her dress sense, her hair, her everything.
WHO IS YOUR CELEBRITY STYLE CRUSH?
If Youtubers are included in this, then Victoria as stated in the previous question and also Megan Ellaby. She takes clothes that I would wear but adds quirky accessories and has fun with her outfits which i something I wish I had more confidence to do.
DO YOU PREFER NAIL EXTENSIONS OR HAIR EXTENSIONS?
I’ve never had either but I’d say nail extensions. Due to working in the food industry, I have to keep my nails short and unpainted so to have pretty nails is something I long for.
WHAT IS YOUR ALL TIME FAVOURITE QUOTE?
“Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.” (A Cinderella Story, 2004)
