I choose you (pikachu?) to do this tag.

How many times do you wash your face daily?

Usually just once at the end of the night.  My face stays pretty clean from washing it at night until the morning.

What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
I have very dry and flaky skin. 

What is your current facial wash?

It is a Clean and Clear hydrating one.  Im not sure on the name, but it is in a bright yellow bottle and smells like pineapple!

Do you exfoliate?
Yes, usually in the shower I will. 

What brand do you use?

I loveee this one from Befine.  SO good!

What moisturizer do you use?

Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion.

Do you have freckles?

Do you use eye cream?
I don’t, but I should!

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

Nope.  A few pimples here and there but nothing major.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?


What foundation do you use? 
I normally just use my Mac MSF Natural as foundation but if I use a liquid, it’s Covergirl Aquasmoothers.

How about concealer?
I have a concealer palette from coastal scents that I like, Boiiing from Benefit or a stick concealer from ELF.

Do you know your undertone color?

I am more of a cool toned girl, but I lean towards neutral.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?

I don’t use them often, only on a special occasion.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
I sure do, but do I follow this?  Not really.  I use it until it turns on me or smells differently from when I open it.

What brand of mascara do you use?

I have about 8 mascaras open right now (terrible, I know) but the ones I use the most are Flirt! Lengthening and Smokey Lash from MUFE (waterproof!)

Sephora or MAC?
I love MAC but I love the range at Sephora, so Sephora.

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
No, bummer.

What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Brushes, q-tips and some sponge applicators (sometimes)

Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Always!  I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance more than any other.

For the face?
I usually stick with my MUFE HD Primer, the original.

What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?

I find myself going for a smoky eye more often than not.  Usually standard colors, gray, black and white.  But I change it up so often with eyeshadow that I couldn’t say I have one favorite at the moment.

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Pencil on the bottom waterline and either liquid or gel on the lop lash line.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Very rarely.

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I like them, when I do use them but that’s not often.  Its just a hassle sometimes since I will usually only use them wet.  Its just easier to use a pressed eyeshadow for the most part.

Do you use mineral makeup?

What is your favorite lipstick?

Currently it is, Up the Amp from MAC but my go to is usually Hue from MAC.

How about lipgloss?
I just recently started using a clear lip gloss/lip plumper from Hard Candy that I am in love with.

What is your favorite blush to use?
Benefit CORALista, MAC Peaches or MAC Bite of and Apple.

Do you buy your makeup on ebay? 
I never have.

Do you like drugstore makeup?
I do.  I use a mix of “drugstore” and “high end”  I am equal opportunity makeup employer :)

Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
I have been to one, once.  I bought a couple of things and I liked the idea of it!

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I have always wanted to, just never got around to it.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?

Erm, sometimes.  But I’m usually alright.

Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Not blending (face or eyeshadow) and too much mascara!

Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I like a mix of both, depends on my mood.

Which celebrity always has great make up?

I love the simple, classic look of Leighton Meester.

If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item, what would you use?
Eyeliner, always.

Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?

I do all the time.  I don’t need makeup to feel good, I just love the way I look with makeup on.

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I do, actually.

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?

Oh man.  The company that I own the most from and use the most, would be Urban Decay.  I wouldn’t say over all they are “the best” but it is what I like the most.

What do you think of Makeup??
I love it! It’s fun – it’s expression and art in a way.

I tag EVERYONE to do this.  It was just something fun and got me thinking a little about my favorite products.

Always will be,


  1. I've heard so many people speaking about Mac's Hue, and it does look good. Next on my wish list! xx

    1. It was the first lipstick I have ever owned from MAC. It's a really pretty pale/nude pink. It kind of washes out my lips a little but I am also very fair skinned. I would for sure check it out!

  2. Nice !!
