Beauty Tag, Taken From Elle

How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice. First in the morning in the shower, and then right before bed I scrub  all my make up off.

What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
Oily and picky! If I wash it to much it gets dry and flaky but I still get break outs, if I don't wash enough it gets super oily and breaks out. I can't win with it lol.

What is your current facial wash?
Neutrogena Foaming Scrub Deep Clean.

Do you exfoliate?
I have to exfoliate everyday because my skin gets so oily. I know they say to only do it a couple times a week but I feel doing it everyday keeps my skin cleaner.

What brand do you use?
I like to try different brands because I feel like my skin gets use to the same brand if I'm using it for too long. I really wish I could find one that works amazingly.

What moisturizer do you use?
A Clean and Clear one. I need to get a better one, but I do not have a good store near me.

Do you have freckles?
Nope, even though I've kinda always wanted some lol.

Do you use eye cream?
No, I got one a little while back and hated it, so I need to do some research and get a good one.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
I've always have acne prone skin. I have tried so many different things to get rid of it but nothing has worked so far.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
Yes, a long time ago and I don't think it did anything for me.

What foundation do you use?
Mac Studio Fix

How about concealer?
I don't really have concealer, I need to get some.

Do you know your undertone color?
I'm not really sure (that sounds terrible) but I have a lot of redness in my face because of the acne, I also tan a lot.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
They scare me a little, I haven't had a lot of time to play and practice with them.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yup. I always get bored and change them before then anyways.

What brand of mascara do you use?
I looooove Loreal carbon black.

Sephora or MAC?
I love them both way to much to choose.

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
No :(

What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Brushes, my beauty sponge and Q-tips.

Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Only if I'm going somewhere important or want to look really nice for a long time. If I'm just going to class or work I tend to skip it.

For the face?
No, I'm trying to find a good one. As you can tell my list is getting very long of all the things I need.

What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I'm loving UD Naked Palette. It is literally the greatest palette in the world.

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Pencil. Or the cream out of the pot.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Rarely. If I do I wear contacts so it just bounces off and I barely notice lol

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I don't use them, to messy and fussy.

Do you use mineral makeup?
Nope, I've used Bare Minerals in the past and didn't like it. I feel it barely covered anything and took longer to apply.

What is your favorite lipstick?
I need to work on my lipstick collection because I don't wear lipstick that much. I do own the Lady Gaga lipstick from MAC (the light pink one) and I love it.

How about lipgloss?
I tend to like a neutral shiny lipgloss, I also have pink poodle by MAC and love it too.

What is your favorite blush to use?
I like Nars Orgasm, it's the perfect color.

Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
Nope, I don't trust it.

Do you like drugstore makeup?
It's okay. I always buy my foundation from a higher end place because my skin is so crazy. But I get lip glosses and mascara from drug stores.

Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
No, I have none near me :|

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I would love to but again, I have none near me :(

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Sometimes, I can get a little lazy and distracted lol

Name a makeup crime that you hate?
I hate when old ladies draw in their eyebrows and it looks so completely fake. Or when girls are new to make up and put a ton of eye shadow on and a bright lipstick.

Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
For day time I tend to stick to neutrals. I work a lot so I try to keep it polished but not over done. When I go out I'll do a smokey eye and get a little more daring.

Which celebrity always has great make up?
Blake Lively always looks beautiful! I would kill for her skin/hair.

If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item, what would you use? Foundation. My skin needs the most help.

Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
I do sometimes, if I'm running to the gym or something. But I feel weird going other places without it.

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I look plain. I love the way makeup transforms me.

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I don't really know because I haven't tried enough products from different brands. Each has their strengths and weakness. Not one is just perfect.

What do you think of Makeup??
I love it. I love that just spending a little time playing around with it can make a person feel so much better and more confident with themselves.
