I'm alive... and 40 Beauty Questions

 This tag has been going around for a little while and it seemed fun so here goes dolls ..
How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice, pretty sure this is standard. Morning and night, gotta get the dirties off.

-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
Combination. I have an oily T-Zone and dry cheeks and such.
-What is your current facial wash?
Angels on Bare Skin and Herbalism. I really love both of them. Angels is a good everyday one and Herbalism is a good one for oily skin but I CANNOT stand the smell. YUCK!

-Do you exfoliate?
Yes, Angels on Bare Skin is a mild exfoliate and I use this everyday but two times a week a exfoliate that's slightly more abrasive.
-What brand do you use?
Lush =/ Noticing a trend here are we?

-What moisturizer do you use?
Dear John by Benefit for night time. Seriously a godsend for winter months and Ultralight Moisturizer for the day by Lush.
-Do you have freckles?
No, my sister does though and I'm a tad jealous.
-Do you use eye cream?
I want to say Eyecon by Benefit but I haven't been using it for a while and that would be cheating huh?
-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Not so much. I don't have amazing skin by any means but I'm not prone to breakouts but I do suffer from the occasional painful blemish that forms under the skin.
-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
No this seems incredibly scary to me as people have told me it is really harsh .. and I happen to be a baby so there.

-What foundation do you use?
MakeupForever HD foundation, it's okay. I'm not really over the moon about it.
-How about concealer?
I use Select Cover-Up in NW20 by MAC.
-Do you know your undertone color?
Warm. I always thought I was cool toned until someone promptly told me how wrong I was.
-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I like them, I feel they aren't worth the hassle if all I'm doing is going to the movies but for big nights out I think they are essential.
-Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yeah but I always run out and I have like 10 mascaras rotating at the moment. I know, bad girl.
-What brand of mascara do you use?
Every kind. I feel like with mascara it's stupid to be a brand snob.
-Sephora or MAC?
This is a hard one, I like the variety of Sephora but I love the collections from MAC.
-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
MAC Brushes and Shu Curler.
-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Mostly my Urban Decay Primer Potions, I have the Original, Eden and Sin. I also use shadesticks and paintpots as well.
-For the face?
I have the Makeup Forever HD primer in Green but I like Benefit's That Gal the most. It smells yummy.
-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I work in an office so I usually stick to the neutrals. When I'm not in the office I love using cranberry-esque(really is that allowed, lol) colors because they make my green eyes pop.
-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
I prefer liquid when I want my eyeliner to be the focus point but gel when I just want to put on some eyeliner.
-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Never, ladies must be careful when doing such things.
-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I like them but I'd much rather prefer pressed shadows.
-Do you use mineral makeup?
No, it makes me itchy.
-What is your favorite lipstick?
Urban Decay's Naked at the moment but it's always changing.
-How about lipgloss?
Benefit's Life on the A List.
-What is your favorite blush to use?
Right now I'd have to say Sunbasque but normally Spaced Out.
-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
I did when I first got into makeup but never now.
-Do you like drugstore makeup?
Sometimes. I feel like sometimes you pay for what you get.
-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
Yes going to mine this weekend!!!
-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I've considered it. My best friend is a hair dresser and she wanted me to take some with her but I'm not too sure.
-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Sometimes with my liquid eyeliner.
-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
When ladies use to heavy a bronzer and their faces tend to look a little dirty or orange and honestly which one is worse?
-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
Neutral mostly.
-Which celebrity always has great make up?
I LOVE Katy Perry's makeup. I also like Kim Kardashian but who doesn't?
-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
Lip Balm
-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes, I didn't wear a drop of makeup all through highschool and it didn't bother me then and doesn't so much now.
-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I think I look okay but I think I look better with makeup.
-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I'd have to say a tie between MAC and Urban Decay.-What do you think of Makeup?
I don't think anyone that dislikes makeup would bother filling out a 40 question tag.
