20 Questions: The Makeup Tag

Hello Ladies and welcome to The Makeup Tag! Beth from La Blog Beauté tagged me and I was really excited to share a little bit about myself. So let's get started! 

1. Do You remember your first makeup item?

It was so long ago, but I think it was a CoverGirl eyeshadow trio and blush that my mom gave me. 

2. Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found "The One"? 

Volume, Length, no clumping. I don't think I have. There are so many mascaras out there that I haven't tried yet like Better Than Sex. However I really like Calvin Klein, Urban Decay Perversion, Benefit tinted Primer, and CoverGirl Super Sizer.    

3. What coverage do you like in a foundation?

It honestly depends on my skin and the look I am going for. If my skin is clear I prefer sheer coverage. If I have breakouts medium to full coverage.   

4. What's your favorite high-end brand?

It's so hard to choose! There is something about each brand that I love. I would say my top two are Too Faced and Urban Decay. 

5. What cosmetic brand are you desperate to try but haven't yet? 

Anastasia Beverly Hills, Bite Beauty, Bobbie Brown, and Kat Von D. Everytime I walk into Sephora I go straight to the Kat Von D section to swatch her palettes. 

6. Favorite drugstore brand?

Maybelline for foundation and NYX for everything else. I feel like they have the biggest selection of products especially for halloween looks! 


7. Do you wear fake eyelashes?

Only for special occasions and Halloween. When I get ready I don't have the time. 

8. Is there any makeup you can't leave the house without wearing? 

If I don't have time for a full face I will usually just use my Benefit tinted primer and a lip product. I'd much rather focus on my skincare. If my skin looks bad I will use a BB cream. 

9. What is your most cherished beauty product?

I have three! Champagne pop, the Chocolate Bar palette, and the Morphe 35O palette. 

10. How often do you buy a makeup product?

Not very often. It's usually only when I need to replace something or I see a good sale on things I've been wanting to try. 

11. Do you have a monthly beauty budget or spend freely?

I don't have a set budget I just know that I can't spend a ton of money. When I get money as a gift I will allow myself to spend a little more. 

12. Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards, and sales for your beauty purchases?

Absolutely! I've been able to save a decent amount of money during sales. I'm also an Ulta, Sephora, and Urban Decay member so I try to see if they have good sales.  

13. Which beauty product do you buy the most of?

Nail polish and eyeshadow! I love to go to Ulta's clearance section and find good nail polishes on sale. The Last time I got an Essie polish under 50 cents! 

14. Is there a brand that you really don't like? 

E.L.F. I know it's budget friendly but i'd rather spend a bit more on a brand that has better quality. 

15. Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?

Not really. I've become more aware of what I put on my skin but I don't avoid certain ingredients unless they don't work well with my skin.

16. Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?

Ulta and Sephora. I like that Ulta has high-end and drugstore products and I like that Sephora has more high-end options.  

17. Do you like trying new skincare products or sticking to a routine?      

I try to stick to a routine but I like to switch it up every once in a while based on my skincare needs. I really enjoy trying new products though and finding new favorites. 

18. What's your favorite bath and body brand?

Bath and Body Works! I LOVE their shower gels so I stock up on them when they are on sale. I also like Lush's products.

19. If you could only buy from one brand, who would you pick?

This is a tough one. There is something about each brand that I love. For budget friendly I would choose NYX. For high-end I would have to choose Too Faced. They have really good products and the fact that some smell like chocolate doesn't hurt! 

 20. What do you love about makeup?

Everything! It helps me feel more put together and pretty. It can give me a confidence boost on my bad days. I also love how creative we can be with makeup! I love Halloween because I can kind of go crazy with the makeup.     

I hope you enjoyed the Makeup Tag I know I did trying to think about my answers for some of those questions! I would like to tag Mudpipes and Glitter and Glamour and Giggles.
