The Makeup Addict Tag!

1. What product do you keep buying more of, despite having plenty of in your collection?

Definitely more lipstick! My favorite shades are usually pinks & reds but on occasion I do love to take a bit of a risk with a deep plum or black lipstick. I just love how applying lipstick can really finish off your look. I find lipstick to be a really glam product, it makes me feel ten times better whenever I wear it. When it comes to lipsticks, a girl can never have too many shades!

2. What’s the one product you can’t live without?

The one product I couldn’t live without would have to be mascara. I feel like I look like a sheet of white paper with pupils when I don’t wear any mascara! Most days I don’t wear any make-up at all, except for mascara. I usually give my lashes a quick curl with an eyelash curler, then slick on some black mascara and I am good to go for the day. Ohhh & hair dye, I need that in my life!

I used to hate not wearing any make-up but now I prefer to only wear it once or twice a week. Most days i’m barefaced! Someday’s I will wear a mineral foundation from Beautiful Movements Cosmetics, it’s breathable and light on my skin, I don’t even feel like I am wearing make-up when I have it on! It looks so natural. I love the fact that Beautiful Movements Cosmetics are cruelty free.

3. Favourite makeup brand?

My favorite make-up brand would have to be a tie between Barry M & Urban Decay. Both are cruelty free companies that sell fantastic quality products. Barry M have amazing pigmented lipsticks and vibrant nail polishes. I love Urban Decay’s eye shadow palettes. I wish I was good at applying eye shadow so I could make the most of them! Ohhh also, I love Collection 2000.

Okay, so I’ve three favorite brands!

4. How big is your makeup collection?

I’ll put it this way, my boyfriend sighs whenever I bring home any new beauty products or make-up. He can’t understand how one person own so many beauty products, hah! He is probably right! I mean, how many shades of red lipstick can one girl own? (A lot is the answer, a lot!) I do think my collection is probably very small in comparison to other beauty bloggers though.

5. How do you store your makeup collection?

I store my make-up in a plastic drawer in my bathroom and some other make-up is stored in some funky boxes in my room. I try to keep my make-up in order but sometimes it’s impossible!

6. How many items of makeup do you have in your handbag at the moment?

I always say that my handbag is like the Barney bag, full of weird surprises! I always carry some tissue, face powder & lip balm, no matter what. Other than that, I am not too fussy. If I am going somewhere special or on a night out, I always carry make-up reinforcement! If I am wearing eyeliner or lipstick, I carry it in my bag to top it up through out the night.

7. If you could raid another blogger’s stash, who would it be?

That would have to be my friend LetzMakeup. She is well educated about make-up and beauty products. I just really trust and value her opinion on different products, so I know her stash would be a gold mine for any make-up lover! Her make-up is always so on point. She’s so talented!

8. How long does your makeup routine take and how many products do you use?

It depends on where I am going. If I am at home or just running errands, I will wear little to no make-up at all. A slick of lip balm and mascara does me fine, I like to let my skin breath when I can because it is so sensitive. If I am going somewhere special, I put in more effort.

If I have time I put on foundation, brow gel, a neutral eye shadow and my my ‘go to’ winged eyeliner look. I love lining underneath my eyes too. I have a specific flick I draw near the inner corner of my eyes that always makes me feel more dolled up! Then I finish off with a bright lip.

9. Have you ever bought makeup knowing you wouldn’t use it?

Oh my god, YES! Hasn’t every girl? It happens far more often than i’d like to admit! Sometimes I will have have a moment of madness and think that I can pull off some mad coloured eye shadow or somehow think I will magically have the skills to use a certain product correctly. Then I convince myself I need it in my life and when I get home I think to myself ‘why the hell did I buy this?’
