I saw this tag while reading a few blogs and I thought it would be fun to do to help you gain a little more insight into my taste. What do you love about makeup? Let me know in the comments down below!
Do you remember your first makeup item?
When I was in middle school I received a “Hard Candy” eyeshadow quad (back when Hard Candy was still a more pricey brand) and a “Benefit” Kitten Powder puff which is kinda of the equivalent of the “Fenty Beauty” Fairy Bomb now – it was the coolest thing ever.
Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications? I don’t have a perfect mascara, I’m constantly trying new ones but I really like the “Ciate” Wonderwand and the “Too Faced” Better Then Sex – both have similar brush heads that give crazy volume .
What kind of coverage do you prefer from a foundation?
Because I have such dry skin I prefer lighter more luminous and dewy foundations and spot conceal any problem areas.
Favorite high-end brand?
Oohh tough, I really like Marc Jacobs Beauty and have been an Urban Decay loyalist since the beginning of time
What cosmetics brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
La Mer, it’s so expensive
Favourite drugstore brand?
Do you wear false lashes?
I have on special occasions but thankfully I was blessed with pretty decent lashes so I don’t need to
Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
I walk around make-up free all the time but if my eyebrows fade (I dye my hair dark and I’m a natural blonde) I will fill them in to match my dark hair

My “Charlotte Tilbury” Bronze and Glow, I think I use it daily

What do you love about makeup?
I think I love the power of makeup as a transformer, I love doing a women’s makeup and you can just see their confidence level rise. I love experimenting with different looks, colors, and textures, I love the artistic expression, I love how powerful it can make me feel, like when you go outside and your flick is so sharp you could cut a b**** lmao I LOVE THAT FEELING
