40 Beauty Questions
How many times do you wash your face daily?
Once. My skin is fairly dry so if I wash it more than once it gets irritated and causes me to breakout.
What skin type do you have?
Combination. My T-Zone and chin get oily, but the rest is pretty dry.
What is your current facial wash?
I’ve been using Dermae Very Clear Problem Skin Cleanser, which I got in my August Naturals VoxBox from Influenster. It has tea tree oil in it so it prevents breakouts and I’m really liking it so far.
Do you exfoliate?
No, it tends to irritate my skin. I do use a clarifying mask once a week.
What brand do you use?
Uh…I don’t use an exfoliater, but I do use the Freeman Superfruits Detoxifying Facial Clay Mask.
What moisturizer do you use?
I’ve been using the Aveeno Positively Radiant moisturizer for the past few months, but I’m probably going to use something different once it’s gone.
Do you have freckles?
Do you use eye cream?
No. Sometimes I use Clinique’s Moisture Surge under my eyes at night.
Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
I never did until I turned 21. Then I started breaking out fairly often on my chin, nose and t-zone. Lately it hasn’t been too bad though.
What acne products do you use?
Tea tree oil is my favorite product for acne control.
What foundation do you use?
I don’t usually use a foundation. I prefer tinted moisturizers. When I do use foundation, it’s either Bare Minerals or Revlon Colorstay.
What concealer do you use?
Right now I’m using Hard Candy’s glamoflauge. It works well for covering spots, but I don’t like it under my eyes because it creases.
Do you know your undertone color?
Yes, I have yellow undertones.
What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I think they’re fun.
Do you follow makeup expiration dates?
Sometimes. With mascara I definitely toss it out after about 3 months. However, for powders I find they are fine forever as long as I sanitize them with alcohol spray regularly. I tend to go by smell and consistency with cream products. If anything changes, I toss it out.
What brand of mascara do you use?
I’m not loyal to any brand, but I’ve been using Covergirl’s Lash Blast Fusion recently.
Sephora or MAC?
Definitely Sephora. MAC isn’t my favorite brand for really anything but brushes and even then I tend to gravitate towards Sigma because they are better priced. Sephora carries Urban Decay, which is my all time favorite brand of makeup.
Do you have a MAC pro-card?
What makeup tools do you use in makeup application?
I use a variety of brushes, my fingers, an eyelash curler and sponges.
Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
I use Urban Decay’s Primer Potion and Too Faced Shadow Insurance fairly interchangeably. Occasionally, I’ll use Benefit’s Lemon Aid or MAC’s Painterly Paint Pot.
For the face?
I love Too Faced’s Primed and Poreless.
What is your favorite eyeshadow?
Hmm…probably Urban Decay’s X. It’s an awesome melon duo chrome.
Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Both. I’m very picky about eyeliner though and I will only use pencils from MAC and liquid liner from Urban Decay. Nothing else really works for me.
What has been your biggest eyeliner mishap?
I tried to use Milani’s Infinite Liquid Liner and it was disastrous. It slipped all over my lid and made me look like a clown.
What do you think of pigments?
I don’t tend to buy them because they’re messy, but I like how versatile they are.
Do you use mineral makeup?
Yes. I use Bare Minerals and Tarte.
What is your favorite lipstick?
Definitely Urban Decay’s Naked.
What is your favorite lipgloss?
I like a lot of different lipglosses but right now I really love Liplicious’ in Bitten and Smitten.
What is your favorite blush to use?
It’s not technically a blush, but I really love using MAC’s Beauty Powder in Shell Pearl.
Have you ever bought makeup on eBay?
Yes, but only from a reputable seller.
Do you like drugstore makeup?
Yes, especially Wet n’ Wild’s Color Icon palettes and NYC’s Blushable Creme Sticks.
Do you go to CCOs?
I’ve been once to the one closest to me. They didn’t have too many things that I wanted so I haven’t been back.
Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?
Yes, but then I saw how much they cost and decided practice makes perfect.
Are you clumsy at putting on makeup?
No. I doubt I’d have this blog if I was.
Name a makeup crime that you hate.
Overdone bronzer. Human beings shouldn’t look like bacon.
Do you like colorful shades of makeup or neutral ones?
I tend to gravitate towards neutrals, but I do like a pop of color on my lips every once and a while.
Which celebrity always has great makeup?
I don’t really follow celebrities so it’s hard for me to say. I think Evan Rachel Wood is gorgeous, so maybe her.
If you could leave the house using just one makeup item, what would you use?
Lip balm. My lips get dry easily, so it’s a must have for me.
Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes. I do it all the time. Makeup is more of a hobby for me than a necessity.
Do you think you look good without makeup on?
Sometimes. It depends on the day and the quality of my skin.
What is the best makeup line?
Urban Decay. I love pretty much everything they do.
What makeup line don’t you like?
There’s not really any lines that I don’t like, just products that are not so great.
