Hey guys, sorry I have been posting all that much recently. I hit a bit of a wall creatively and wasn’t feeling great mentally so decided to take a little break. Today’s post is a bit of a cheaty one since I am answering some questions from the Makeup Tag. I wanted to write something that would be helpful to ease myself back into blogging. I hope this post will be interesting to read, I love Q&As and Tag content because it feels like you are getting to know the creator a bit better. I have only picked a few questions from this tag because I didn’t want this post to be too long.
Do you remember your first makeup item?
When I was younger, my Grandma would often receive gifts with purchase when she got her makeup. I remember she gave me a mini set from Estee Lauder that contained mini sizes of a few products. In that set there was a mini of a blush which I was obsessed with. It was a rosy shade and I still have it to this day because it reminds me of my Grandma and my first experiences of makeup when I was 13 or 14 (I don’t use it though).
What’s your favourite high-end and drugstore makeup brand?
For high-end, I’d have to say Urban Decay because I think I like the most products from them across every category and product type. I like that UD is mid-range so it isn’t too expensive, yet the quality is there. Charlotte Tilbury would be a close second because everything performs beautifully and is so luxe.
For drugstore, I use such a mix of products across brands that I found it hard to choose. I’d have to say NYX because even though they are quite expensive for drugstore products sometimes, they have a lot of variety with shades and formulas.
What coverage do you like in a foundation?
I kind of pick and choose depending on occasion to be honest. If I was talking about everyday or my fave coverage I would go for a light-medium coverage (which can be sheered out or built up) that offers a satin-dewy finish whilst still lasting well.
What cosmetics brand are you desperate to try but haven’t yet?
This isn’t really a particular brand, but I’d love to try some K-Beauty because the formulas and packaging look so cool and different to anything I’ve tried before. I just need to find an online retailer that is trustworthy to be able explore K-Beauty.
What’s your favourite Bath and Body brand?
I think this comes as no surprise to anyone, but it would have to be LUSH! I am obsessed!! Soap and Glory or Zoella Beauty would be my second faves for more affordable options that smell amazing!
Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup?
Probably Beauty Bay because they cover everything from Drugstore to High-End prices. They offer some amazing international brands that wouldn’t be easy to get in the UK. There is such amazing variety of brands and products and they are constantly adding new brands and listening to their customers which I love.
Sorry if you found this post a bit boring, I promise my usual content will resume next week and I have quite a few reviews and ideas up my sleeve for the coming weeks. I would love to see other people’s responses to these questions. Let me know if you give this tag a go – I found these questions here
