40 Beauty Basics

Hey guys!

No video today so I thought I would do a basic beauty tag. I love doing these kind of tags that allow me to rave about the beauty products that I wear day in and day out rather than just on a tutorial! So lets get started!!

How many times do you wash your face daily?

– I wash my face first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

What skin type do you have? (dry, oily or combination)

– I have combination skin. Most of my skin is normal but then I get a very oily T zone.

What is your current facial wash?

– My current facial wash is this one from Tesco. It is so cheap but is very gentle and soothing on the skin because it has cucumber extract.

Do you exfoliate?

– I exfoliate every other day before bed using this Skin System facial scrub that has little particles to gentle buff and cleanse the face.

What brand do you use?

– Skin Systems Young Skin

What moisturiser do you use?

I use two different moisturisers.  I use the Skin System Young Skin Matt finish foundation in the morning and before I put my makeup on because it is light and doesn’t feel greasy and then I use the Tesco daily moisturiser before bed as it is a little bit more heavy-duty.


Do you have freckles?

– Nope

Do you use eye cream?

– Nope

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

-I am very fortunate that I have never had acne prone skin.

Did you ever use ProActiv?

– I have not.

What foundation do you use?

-I do not wear foundation

How about concealer?

– I do wear concealer and I use the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – this is no surprise as I love it so I wont go on about it! I use the shade 1 – Fair


Do you know your undertone colour?

-I want to say blue/cool toned but I am really not sure

What do you think of fake eyelashes?

– I love the effect of them but I am rubbish at doing it!

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?

-I do! Do I stick by that? I do not.

What brand of mascara do you use?

I am currently using the L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes Diamantssime and I LOVE it.


Sephora or Mac?

-Never tried either but I would say MAC

Do you have a MAC Pro-Card?

– Funny enough, no.

What make-up tools do you use in make-up application?

-When I don’t use my fingers I use my Beauties Factory Brushes.


Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?


For the face?

-I apply moisture and that seems to do the job!

What is your favourite eye shadow? (Colour or Shade)

-This deep brown shadow from MUA. It is in the colour Obsession.


Do you use pencil or liquid eye-liner?

-I like my eyeliner to be bold so I use the NYC High Definition liquid liner in extra black.


How often do you poke your eyes with an eye liner pencil?

-Only when I’m not paying attention

What do you think of pigment eye shadows?

-Hard to use

Do you use mineral make-up?

– I do not

What is your favourite lipstick?

-I love this colour from Active. It is in the shade 7 and it can be applied really sheer or built up to get a bold vampy red.


How about lip gloss?

– Hate the stuff

What is your favourite blush?

-I really like this dusty rose blush that came in an unnamed palette.


Do you buy make-up on e-bay?

-I prefer to try the product out physically first.

Do you like drug store make-up?

-I really do

Do you go to CCO’s? (Cosmetic Company Outlets)

-Don’t even know what they are!

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?

-I did for a while but I use makeup just for fun, not professionally.

Are you clumsy in putting on make-up?

-I can be, yes.

Name a make-up crime that you hate?

-When people don’t match their foundation.

Do you like colourful shades of make-up (lipstick, eye shadow) or neutral tones?

-Neutrals are much easier to wear but that doesn’t mean I don’t like playing around with playful, bright colours.

Which celebrity always has great make-up?

-Seeing as they are all professionally done, most of them however I will always love Adele’s classic pin up look.

If you could leave the house with just ONE Make-up item, what would you use?


Could you ever leave the house without any make-up on?

– I do all the time.

Do you think you look good even without any make-up on?

– I think makeup should be used to enhance what you already have not conceal it.

In your opinion, what is the BEST make-up line?

– They all have their flaws.

What do you think of Make-up?

– I think makeup shouldn’t be taken too seriously. It is fun and can be played around with. I also don’t think it should be depended on.

Those are all the questions in this tag! I hope you enjoyed it. I tag JoannaLoves, Samandro and Think.Love.Makeup along with anyone else who wants to do it!
