40 Beauty Questions

Snagged this from a fellow blogger :) I'm an eensy bit bored right now, so I figured I'd fill this out.

-How many times do you wash your face daily?
Generally, just once. I tone in the morning & cleanse at night.

-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
Combo & it's terrible! Dry patches, oily patches, ugh!

-What is your current facial wash?
I use quite a few, actually. I remove all of my makeup with the Neutrogena Transparent Cleansing Bar. I cleanse with either YesTo Tomatoes wash or a Premier Dead Sea wash.

-Do you exfoliate?
3-5 times a week.

-What brand do you use?
I actually use a facial cleansing sponge.

-What moisturizer do you use?
It varies. I rotate from a vitamin c creme to YesTo Cucumbers or YesTo Tomatoes lotion

-Do you have freckles?
I do.

-Do you use eye cream?
Yes. Burt's Bees Radiance

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Not acne-prone, just very, very sensitive.

-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?

-What foundation do you use?
I try to steer clear of foundation, especially liquid. I'm a huge fan of BE's Matte foundation in Fair.

-How about concealer?
I don't use concealer.

-Do you know your undertone color?

-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
They're so much fun! I don't think I even own a pair of 'natural' lashes. Go all out, I say ;D

-Did you know that you are suppose to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, but I generally give it 4 months.

-What brand of mascara do you use?
So many. My favourite is Lancome Hypnose. I'm also diggin' the new L'Oreal Volumnious Million Lashes. Cover Girl LashBlast Fusion is also great.

-Sephora or MAC?
In terms of shopping, Sephora. In terms of the brand/product, MAC.

-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
Not anymore.

-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Brushes for applying, sometimes my finger for creme products & q-tips for clean up.

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
I never go without it! Either UDPP, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, NYX bases & jumbo eye pencils, MAC paint pots, MAC paints, MAC shadesticks & Ben Nye creme colours!

-For the face?
Too Faced or Smashbox

-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
Anything green or teal. MAC's Guacamole & MAC's Meadowland are two of my favourites.

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Pencil, liquid and gel!

-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
Love them.

-Do you use mineral makeup?
I do. I have quite a bit of mineral shadows & foundations.

-What is your favorite lipstick?
MAC 'Hue'

-How about lipgloss?
Too Faced Glamour Gloss in 'Pillow Talk'

-What is your favorite blush to use?
MAC Beauty Powder in Pretty Baby!

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
Very, very rarely. Lots of fakes on ebay!

-Do you like drugstore makeup?
Just mascara & eyeliner.

-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
2-3 times a year. They're fantastic.

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I already am! :D

-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?

-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Foundation that is obviously TOO DARK.

-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I generally opt for more colour, in terms of both lips and eyes. I used to be deathly afraid of neutral anything, but have lately found myself in love with the nude lip. I also always wear neutral shadow for work.

-Which celebrity always has great make up?
Tough one, really. Because I don't pay that much attention to celebs :P

-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
Lancome Hypnose mascara.

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
I do it quite often.

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I can actually say that I do. Do I like it? No, but I don't think I look bad or anything.

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
Ben Nye, hands down. It's stage makeup, so it's crazy pigmented & has the best vibrancy and payoff of any makeup I've ever used. Not to mention it is very inexpensive when you consider how much you pay for MAC & other high-end brands. I recommend Ben Nye to everyone!

-What do you think of Makeup??
I think it is a creative outlet, but also a great way to enhance your features. In terms of artistic makeup, it's like are able to just express yourself & let your feelings, emotions come to life with colour. It sounds so cheesy, but I think it's true. I think I use makeup to let myself relax & put some ideas together. I have so much in my head that I can't wait to put out onto my eyes. It's an expression.
