I love beauty tags! I’ve never been tagged in one, so I’m just going to jump right into “The Beauty Tag” that I found from the Makeup Dreamer Blog by Amsa! I actually dream about makeup at night, so this tag is perfect!
Do you remember your first makeup item?
It was a fuschia lipstick from Mary Kay. I think the color was actually called fuschia!
Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
My perfect mascara gives me thick, dense but fluffy lashes with a little bit of length. I don’t think that formula exists yet.
What kind of coverage do you prefer from a foundation?
I like sheer to medium coverage. Bases like that are more forgiving color wise.
Favorite high-end brand?
What cosmetics brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
I’ve always wanted to try eyeshadows from Melt and Sugarpill!
Favorite drugstore brand?
It’s quickly becoming Wet n Wild. They have been killing it lately!
Do you wear false lashes?
I do! Finally starting to get the hang of them again.
Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
Probably lipstick. Even without another stitch of makeup, lipstick can make anyone look a little more put together.
What is your most cherished beauty product?
It would have to be a glossy balm from the Covergirl Queen Collection. I can’t remember the name, but I just hit pan on it 🙁
How often do you shop for makeup? Do you like to pick up an item here and there, or get lots of goodies at once?
I’m sort of a grazer when it comes to makeup. I’ll browse the makeup aisles and let something catch my eye. If I don’t own anything like it, then it might jump into my shopping cart.
Do you have a “beauty budget” or do you spend freely?
I’m a cheapskate, so I like to budget, stack coupons and shop at CVS for the extra care bucks.
Do you utilize coupons, reward cards, and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
See answer above! LOL
What type of product do you buy the most of?
It would have to be color products.
Is there a brand you absolutely can’t stand?
Yeah, I’m not a fan of Almay or Physicians Formula! Their shade range is garbage.
Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics, like parabens or sulfates?
Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?
Do you like trying new skin care products or do you keep a certain routine?
I like to stick to what works.
Favorite bath and body brand?
Don’t have one. I can’t stand perfumed body products or body glitter…anymore
What brand do you think has the best packaging?
I like packaging from a variety of brands. No one brand stands out.
Which celebrity always has great makeup?
I love Keri Washington’s makeup.
Do you belong to any online makeup communities?
Probably too many! But I love Reddit. My favorite right now is r/BGChatter and r/MakeupAddict
Favorite beauty gurus
Emily Noel since day one!
Do you like multi-functional products like lip and cheek stains?
Not really. If I use a product on my lips, it’s not going anywhere near the rest of my face. I especially hate anything labeled for eyes, lips, and face.
Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
Religiously. Especially eye primer. I have really oily lids so it really makes a difference.
How many hair products do you use on a typical day?
No more than three.
What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
I’m old school. Concealer first.
Would you ever consider taking makeup classes?
Not really, there is nothing they can teach that I can’t learn online.
What do you love about makeup?
I love that I can look different EVERYDAY if I want to.
Let’s keep the party going!
