Makeup tag

Hi there!

Today I’m sharing a makeup tag with you. I thought it would be a fun way to share some of my favorite products and my thoughts on makeup in general. I picked a few questions I’ve found on other makeup tags. Enjoy!

What foundation do you use?

My favorites at the moment are Wake Me Up foundation from Rimmel London and Ultra Light Foundation from Make Up Store

How about concealer

I use Collection Lasting Perfection. A great drugstore option.

What do you think of fake lashes?

I love lashes! Natural, extensions or false lashes… For everyday use I only turn to the mascara, but when it’s time to spice up the makeup for a party or evening out I love to put on some extra umpf with false lashes.

What brand of mascara do you use?

I love mascara overall and love to try out new ones. My all time favorites are Diorshow and Lancôme Grandiôse. I frequently use the Loreal Volume Million Lashes as well.

What makeup tools do you use in makeup application?

I’m a brush-girl so I use brushes for everything. My favourites are from Peggy Sage and Emite Makeup.

Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?

Usually not if I’m just heading for work for a few hours, but if I need the makeup to last all day or for a party makeup, ALWAYS!

For the face?

For special occasions, yes, but usually I just make sure to moisturise the face before applying foundation and I find that good enough.

What is your favorite eyeshadow?

AH! This one is impossible! I love love love the Urban Decay Naked Smokey. And Nude Tude from The Balm. And all my Sleek palettes. And the eye dusts from Make Up Store. And the Makeup Academy palettes. No, I’m not doing this! I can’t pick a favorite.

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?

I’m a true kohl pencil girl, but recently I found the Precision Liquid Eyeliner Pencil from the Flawless by Sonya collection from Forever Living so the liquid is finally starting to grow on me as well.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?

Haha! I love this question. I’ve been using the kohl liner for about 13 years now, so I could probably apply it without a mirror without poking my eye now. But when I was younger and started to learn it happened more frequently.

What is your favorite lipstick/lipgloss?

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks (Love the shade on 09 for example) and Make Up Store Lipglosses

What is your favorite blush to use?

Makeup Revolution Blush in colour Love

Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?

Did consider it and did do it. The class I take was pretty basic, focused on beauty, to be able to do wedding and party makeups and work in a makeup store. I would LOVE it if I could take a more advanced class for fashion photos and runway in the future.

Name a makeup crime that you hate.

For me there aren’t really rights and wrongs in makeup, as long as the one wearing the makeup is comfortable with it. BUT, I would lie if I said I didn’t want to go blend peoples’ makeup pretty much daily. Contour and eyeshadows in particular.

Could you ever leave the house without makeup on?

Yes, I do that all the time! I have very sensitive skin and from time to time it really doesn’t want me to wear makeup. At these times I usually prefer go without any makeup at all for six days a week to be able to go all in the last day just to get the satisfaction of a full face makeup. Even when my face has a good period and accepts the makeup I go without it quite often, either out of laziness or lack of time. That being said, I can just as easily do a party makeup even if I’m not leaving the house at all. Just for fun!

This is me today, completely makeup free. The only products I’m wearing on this picture is moisturizers for face, eyes and lips.

Do you think you look good without makeup on?

Well, we all have our good days and bad days and just as anyone I have my flaws, but overall I’m confident with the way I look.

What do you think of makeup?

For me makeup is my passion. It’s a way to express my creativity, and I love to start off with the face as a blank canvas and see the transformation. I love to play with colours and find ways to exenterate the natural beauty of the person in front of me (or myself, of course). I don’t think anyone to use makeup to hide behind, but I love how makeup can give you that little extra boost to feel like the best version of yourself as long as you’re confident with the person underneath.

Jelly Pong Pong – Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara

Hey!

In my last Glossybox I got the Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara. I hadn’t heard about the brand before, so I was excited to try it out.
The packaging is not so much fun. It looks a lot cheaper than it’s said to be. But it’s what’s inside that really counts. Unfortunately it’s not a WOW-experience, but it’s not bad either.

It takes a little too long for the mascara to dry, so it has smudged over the eye shadow a few times. All though I’ve learned my technique to apply it now, so it’s not much of an issue. I haven’t experienced any smudging throughout the day though, which I find is most important. It’s very easy to remove, even though it’s a waterproof mascara. Also a big plus!

I don’t think it adds much volume, but it does give a nice length and separation. With a bit of eyeliner (as seen on picture) I think it works just fine for everyday use, but for a party makeup I would stick to my Maybelline Falsies or Diorshow that are my all time favorites. I’m blessed with quite long lashes, but they are very light at the tips, so pretty much any mascara can do what this one does for me.

I will defiantly keep using the mascara till it’s all out, but I’m not sure I would buy it again. I think I need a bit more to be convinced to pay £18 for a mascara.

Diorshow

As you may, or may not, know I work next to a cosmetics store. It do happen that I get some samples when I shop there, so when I bought my mother a Christmas gift I got the Diorshow mascare, from Dior obviously. I put it away and forgot about it until I bought some new furniture this weekend and started to rearrange my make up. I decided to try it. I fell in love.

I like to collect things, and have loads of everything. Therefor I tend to buy cheaper things, so I can buy many of them. I think I might rethink that when it comes to mascaras. This was so easy to apply! The brush is quite big, but separates really nicely and I don’t find it hard to handle at all. The lashes didn’t get stuck in each other, not even when I put on an extra layer for more volume. There were no lumps, not even a hint of one. I’m not saying I’ve only used horrible mascaras, even if it sure sounds like it. I’m just so in love with this one I have to make everyone seem a little bit worse, to make this sound amazing.

I’m trying to save up money for the trip to London, so I really shouldn’t buy this anytime soon. I’m not so sure I’ll be able to keep that though. Hopefully this little sample will last for at least a little while.
