Hey beautiful! Christy here,
It’s been a long, long while since one of us has done a tag post, and a few days ago I was reading a fellow blogger’s Beauty lovers tag and thought it was a cute tag which I wanted to share! Check out her post here.
I’ve never actually gotten my makeup done by somebody else before and honestly I don’t have anyone particular in mind who I would love to do my makeup. But, if I had to choose somebody it would probably be a celebrity makeup artist like Charlotte Tilbury or Mario Dedivanovic. I low key would also love Jeffree Star to do my makeup just so I could have the opportunity to meet him.
What’s your makeup top tip?
I wouldn’t really say this is a makeup tip but I think it’s important for everyone who uses makeup to remember that just because a product says it’s a bronzer/highlighter/blush etc. doesn’t mean it can’t be used for another purpose such as eyeshadow. I love using my bronzer as a crease shade to create uniformity over the face. This is also true with brushes, most of the time, I don’t use a brush for it’s ‘real’ purpose, I love using my ABH highlighting brush for contouring! Don’t let other people define what makeup is to you.
What Skincare Product could you not live without?
For me, this would definitely be a cleanser. I know that my skin can live without a moisturiser because I do have oily skin and my skin doesn’t ever get dry, and I only started wearing a moisturiser recently. But I definitely cannot live without cleansing off my makeup and having a squeaky clean feeling.
What are you worst at when it comes to applying makeup?
This would be a toss up between eyeliner and eyeshadow. I don’t wear eyeliner much anymore because I truly just suck at it and I’ve kind of given up at this point (which is bad I know, I need to get back into it). I wouldn’t say that I am terrible at eyeshadow, because whenever I do wear eyeshadow I usually go neutral and stick to what I know I’m good at, a simple crease shade and a pop of shimmer on the lid, I never do those intricate looks because 95% of the time I come out looking like I’ve gotten punched in the eye.
What’s your biggest pet peeve about makeup?
My biggest pet peeve about makeup is how so many girls criticise other people’s makeup when they themselves don’t have perfect makeup. Honestly, I’m quite guilty of doing this myself, but I’m trying to improve! It’s all about self-awareness. But – I think instead of criticising each other, we should all help our fellow sisters out and help them improve!
Whats your Guilty Pleasure Product?
Probably my Lorac Pro Eyeshadow palette, I love using it so much, and along with that, I love to just stare at it, it’s so beautiful. I basically cry whenever I use it because I don’t want to hit pan on any of the shadows.
What’s your underdog product?
My underdog product would be the Wet n Wild Centerstage Collection Highlighter in Rose Champagne Glow – I love this highlighter so much, it is such a gorgeous colour and such a ridiculously low price, I can’t wait to collect them all.
What’s your favourite Makeup product of 2016?
I mean, the year has only just started! Oh wait, it’s almost May … shit … But definitely my stand out favourite of the year so far would be the RCMA No Colour Powder, it is truly magical and I can’t believe I’ve been living without this product. It just makes the skin look flawless, it’s definitely my go-to powder of the year.
If any of you are interested, please complete this tag and let me know if you did! I’m super interested to see how everyone else’s answers compare to mine.
Hope you all have a lovely week!
