The Beauty Blogger Tag!

Hello Everyone,

So seeing as I didn’t post last Saturday, I thought I would do an extra post this week! The lovely Kimmie from The Typical Beauty Blog, tagged me in the beauty blogger tag, so a big thank you to her for the tag! <3 Also before I get started, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who liked and commented on my last post about migraines, I can’t believe how many of you go through the same things, so thank you all for the messages of well wishing and all the tips, it meant a lot <3

Kimmie’s Questions:

1.What do you love most about blogging? 😍

I love the interaction with everyone that reads my blog, I love chatting in the comments and seeing peoples experiences and opinions on the things I post, I find it so interesting chatting to everyone, I also love writing the posts, as it feels like a place where I can get my point across best and I really appreciate that!

2.What do you hate about blogging?

I recently wrote a pet peeves post where I talked about some things that I didn’t particularly like about blogging so I’ll link that here, but one thing I don’t like are spam comments and likes, they can really annoy me as it just shows the person isn’t even reading the post when they comment and like and it happens too often!

3.What is your number 1 beauty product?

Oh that is tough, it would probably be concealer, as it can hide my scarring from my acnre and once thats covered I don’t tend to wear much else most days other than mascara and brows. My favourite concealer for the last few months is the Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Camouflage concealer.

4.What is a cult favourite which you don’t reaaaallly like? 😏

I’m not too sure if it is still a cult favourite but one thing I didn’t like after all the hype about it was the Benefit They’re Real mascara, I found it so clumpy and it didn’t do much to my eyelashes at all.

5.How important is skincare to you?

Probably not important as it should be to me, I wash my face and apply moisturizer every day and a mask twice a week but other than that I really don’t do much more, which I probably should!

6.Did you go through that awkward blue eyeshadow phase? πŸ‘€

I actually didn’t, I didn’t start wearing eyeshadow or experimenting with it till I was 15/16 so I wasn’t too bad at it, of course I wasn’t half as good as I am now at 21 but I wasn’t too bad and never went near the blue all over the lid phase, like a lot of other people, I did however do the whole concealer lips thing for a very short amount of time, so that makes up for it haha

7.Do you like MAC lipsticks? πŸ’„

I’ve actually never tried a mac lipstick, which I know may be hard to believe but I’ve just never been really into trying MAC makeup, maybe one day I will try it.

8.Do you prefer lipsticks or liquid lipsticks?

For the last while it has definitely been liquid lipsticks as that’s all I’ve been wearing but I will never not love some of the lipsticks I own.

9.Matte or Glossy lip?

Definitely a matte lip, I’m not a big fan of gloss.

10.Lipgloss or lipstick?

Lipstick, definitely, I think I own three lipglosses and I never wear them even tho they aren’t that bad on, I just don’t like the feeling of them.

11.What was your favourite makeup item in high school?

I didn’t really wear makeup to school as I didn’t see the point because I went to an all girls school. The only time I did wear it was on bad acne days but it would only be some concealer.

12.Whats your favourite makeup look?

A copper smokey eye with a flawless base, that is always my go to on nights out or on times when I just want to wear a bit more makeup. πŸ™‚

13.Is there a beauty blogger you really wanna meet? πŸ™‹

I would love to meet everyone, as I’ve talked to so many amazing bloggers since I’ve started blogging!

14.What do you think of KKW’s beauty range?

I definitely will not be buying any of it. It’s not that it looks awful I just personally think its a bit of a wast of money considering their are a lot better products out there for cheaper, you’re pretty much just paying for her name on the packaging so I’ll give them all a miss πŸ˜›

15.Whats a makeup tip/trick you’ve learned that you now can’t live without?

I have large pores around my cheeks and nose so patting in the foundation into my skin and not swiping the brush across my skin is definitely something I can’t undo πŸ™‚
