11 Questions Tag

with 4 comments

The lovely Procrastinator from Procrastinating Pretty tagged me in the 11 questions tag. I get asked 11 questions, I answer said questions, then pose 11 of my own questions to other people.

1. Check your bag. What lip products do you have in there?

EOS lip balm and Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake. I also have a terrible habit of putting a lip product in a bag and then completely forgetting to take it out before putting the bag away. Then I “lose” the lip product until I decide to use the bag again. Then it’s VOILA! What was lost is now found! So I’m pretty sure my missing Lancôme Le French Touch Absolu is hiding in some pocket in a bag that I cannot for the life of me find.

2. Do you also hate CAPTCHA codes on comments?

Absolutely, because sometimes what I see is apparently not the right answer and it makes me do it over AGAIN. It’s anger inducing! I’m just waiting for the day when websites start asking mathematical questions using CAPTCHA codes. ARGH.

3. Tell me an embarrassing makeup story! What’s one makeup habit that (in hindsight) was so, so wrong for you?

When I first started wearing makeup (which really has only been a few years ago), I had no idea what I was doing. I had just bought my first blush and was super excited to try it out. Unfortunately, I didn’t know how much to put on, and coupled with the bad lighting in my bathroom, I thought I had put it on pretty well. Fast forward a few hours later and I looked at myself in a store mirror. Oops. I looked like I had clown cheeks!

4. What’s the one product/trick/technique that instantly boosts your confidence?

Eyeliner with a slight wing while wearing contacts. It’s amazing how just eyeliner can really change the way you look! The whole contacts thing lets me reveal what I actually look like without hiding behind my frames. I look like two completely different people whether I’m wearing or not wearing my glasses. Also, given how blind I am, makeup usually only comes out when I’m wearing contacts. It is ridiculously difficult to get eyeliner on with your glasses off and you’re only an inch away from the mirror. No joke! My eyesight is really that bad!

5. What is your favourite physical feature on yourself why? How do you enhance it or show it off?

I really like my eyes because it’s the one thing I can experiment with the most. Whether it’s something subtle like mascara or more strong like a full on smoky eye, I’m having fun playing around with what I can do. I have tried a few times to do eyeliner without wearing contacts and… yeah… let’s just say it looked pretty interesting. LOL!

6. Share: your favourite blog? One that you think deserves more attention?

My favourite blog is Little Miss Andrea. I loved how her blog covers both her love of beauty and fashion along with food. Her blog is pretty much the inspiration for mine – if she can blog about beauty and food, why can’t I? I’ve also recently been reading Monica in Heels. She posts practically daily and there’s tons of pictures of her fashion sense (which I’m really liking) as well as some personal tidbits. She also takes pretty pictures.

7. What was the most recent beauty item you repurchased?

NARS’ Blush/Bronzer mini duo in Orgasm and Laguna. I’ve never used a bronzer before and I liked how Orgasm looked on my cheeks when I tried it in Sephora. I feel like this will be an interesting adventure in experimentation. Hopefully, it won’t be as bad as my embarrassing make up story. Unless, someone wants to teach me how to use bronzer? Haha.

8. What’s worse: Terrible drawn eye brows or horribly chipped polish?

Terrible drawn eyebrows for sure. People look at your face (usually) when talking to you, so if your eyebrows are all over the place, it can get pretty distracting. Chipped polish is bad too, but it won’t be as obvious as eye brows.

9. Most affordable beauty favourite? Most expensive beauty favourite?

Most affordable is my Maybelline Baby Lips. Super hydrating for me with just a hint of colour. I’m halfway through my current tube and trying to decide if I should repurchase the same colour or try another one. Most expensive beauty favourite is my Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara. It really does hold the curl of my lashes and doesn’t droop throughout the day.

10. Any HG products?

I love my Lancôme Bi-Facil. I’m still playing around with other products so the HG list is pretty small.

11. Go-to nail colour?

It really depends on my mood! Some days I want a very bright colour, some days I want a subtle colour. I can’t wear colour too often because of work, but on my days off, I like to play around with what I have. Currently, I’m liking L’Oreal’s Color Riche Nail colour in Dating Coral and Innocent Green.

 

Now I tag Maria from Beauty with a Latte Love, Monica from Monica in Heels, and Andrea from Little Miss Andrea!

My questions to you are:

  1. Quick! You’re suddenly going on a weekend trip you can only bring a carry on bag for your flight! What skincare can you pack?
  2. Favourite drink?
  3. Favourite travel destination?
  4. Have you worn false lashes before? Do you remember your first experience with them?
  5. Do you blog and post right away or do you blog and save for later?
  6. How many makeup brushes do you own? How many do you actually use?
  7. Describe your every day makeup face.
  8. Do you use base coat and/or top coat for your nails? Or would you rather go without?
  9. Do you follow any musicians on Youtube? Who are they?
  10. Think back to elementary school. What did you play most often during recess?
  11. Which is more important – fashion or beauty?
