Liebster Award!

Hey Everyone!

I’m SO excited to announce that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award for the second time! This really is such a special award because it is nominated and awarded to and by fellow bloggers and readers.

The Liebster Award acknowledges up-and-coming bloggers with a small amount of followers (200 or less), and is a great way to recognize and share great blogs that haven’t hit it big yet.

The rules are simple : create a blog post answering the 10 questions, nominating 10 bloggers, and then inform those chosen of their nomination.

Here are the QUESTIONS from my nominator, alltheseprettythingss  :

1. What is your favorite part of your makeup routine?

I love to apply my foundation, not because it is particularly fun or anything, it just makes the most drastic difference in my appearance. I love to have a flawless face!

2. If you could only use one drugstore makeup brand for the rest of time, which would it be and why?

I would use Rimmel for sure because I’m obsessed with the Match Perfection foundation. I know they don’t have the widest range of products, but I love what they DO have.

3. Nude or bright eyes/lips?

Nude all the way. Color is great, but I prefer to have a classic look most days. I feel like it looks more expensive.

4. Do you plan your makeup look the night before? 

No, I just grab what I like. Unless I have an early flight and need to get ready fast.

5. Go-to makeup look?

Rimmel Match Perfection foundation, MAC MSFN, Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer, Bobbi Brown Rich Caviar Eye Palette, Covergirl Lash Blast Volume, Loreal Balm in Nourishing Nude.

Usually a full natural face, unless I’m staying home all day.

7. What do you start with makeup-wise?

Primer

8. Favorite skincare product?

Paula’s Choice Resist Moisturizer

9. How long does it take you to get ready every day?

20-30 min. I’m slow.

10. What is your favorite makeup product and why?

MAC MSFN because it has been with me for years and literally makes everything right in the world.

The Beauty Scenario Tag!

Hey Everyone!

This is the Beauty Scenario Tag! This tag is basically a questionnaire of what products you would choose if you put in these various scenarios…. let’s get started!

1. You have to get rid of all your foundations and you can only keep one high end and one drugstore, which do you keep? For drugstore, I would definitely keep my Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation because its great for any occasion, has SPF, and gives a natural finish; and for high-end, I would keep my Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation because it very matte, and photographs beautifully.
2. You go for an interview and the lady interviewing you has lipstick on her teeth. Do you approach the subject or ignore it completely? I would definitely ignore the lipstick on her teeth because I would not want to embarrass her, or anyone I just met for that matter. Also, when you have lipstick on your teeth, there is really no way of knowing when it happened, so for all she knows there was no lipstick on her teeth during the interview.

3. You’re not feeling yourself and need a pick me up. Which lipstick do you put on to make yourself feel beautiful? I’m not a huge lipstick person, but the one lip product that makes me feel more put together every time I wear it, which is quite often, is the Too Faced Glamour Gloss in Pillow Talk. It’s a beautiful neutral nude gloss with slight pink and sparkle. It also is plumping and smells like marshmallows, which is an added bonus!

4. You go back in time for a day to your teenage years, how would you do your hair and makeup differently? I would add some dimension to my face! I had a habit of applying foundation everywhere and not adding back any color or dimension. I was basically just a blank canvas. I would also use an eyeshadow primer, my eye makeup was ALWAYS creasing.

5. You ask your hairdresser for a shoulder length Pixie Lott hair cut, but they hear wrong and give you a pixi cut. Do you a) Smile, say thank you, leave and call your mum hysterical b) Cry in the chair and things get awkward or c) Complain to the manager and demand a refund. First of all,  I would never let anyone even act like they were going to cut a piece that short on my head. Also, I have a bad habit of micromanaging my hair stylist anyways so this would never happen; but if I was drugged and passed out, and the pixie cut happened, I would honestly do “B”. Then I would do “C” and make them fix it as best they could with extensions, etc.

6. Your friend surprises you with a 4 day city break and you have 1 hour to pack. Which ‘do it all’ palette do you pack in your makeup bag? This is a tough one because I usually base what I pack depending on where I am going, but if I had to pick a “do it all” palette as it says, I would bring my MAC 15 pan palette with some nudes, brow colors, some deep colors, and a few brighter and/or bolder colors. It would probably consist of : Brule, Shroom, All That Glitters, Vex, Wedge, Saddle, Haux, Espresso, Mystery, Sketch, Satin Taupe, Shale, Expensive Pink, Motif, Stars N Rockets.

7. Your house has been robbed, don’t worry everyone is safe, but your beauty stash has been raided. What’s the product you really hope is safe? Probably my MAC palettes, just because they are extremely personal to me, and they take a decent amount of time to “create”/fill. If not those, then I hope they didn’t touch my skincare drawers.

8. Your friend borrows your makeup and returns it in awful condition. Do you a) Just pretend you haven’t noticed b) Ask them to repurchase it or c) Secretly do the same to something of theirs.               I would do “A” and then probably try to fix it or just buy a new one and NEVER let them borrow makeup again. It’s not nice of them to ruin your things, but to me, it’s not worth it to cause confrontation and make things awkward, even if I’m in the right.
