40 Questions Makeup | Tag

Hi there!

I don’t know if you have noticed but I am trying to get myself back onto the makeup bandwagon. This is going to be one of the best places for me to start. I used to LOVE all things makeup. My love for it has just dwindled away, somewhere. I am really trying to reignite this spark, which is why I am starting with this makeup questions post.

How many times do you wash your face daily?

  • People wash their face daily? I only wash my face when I wash my hair. I HATE having water on my face for a start. Plus, I don’t put any products on my face daily. The only time is when I apply makeup – which isn’t that often nowadays!

What skin type do you have?

  • Dry skin. I have always suffered from dry skin, it’s actually really annoying!

What is your current facial wash?

  • Actually, I think I am using the Aldi knock off of the Simple Face Wash. It’s the brand Lacura.

Do you exfoliate?

  • Nope, am I supposed too?

What brand do you use?

  • Well, I don’t?

What moisturiser do you use?

  • I have so many, but at the moment I am just using my E45 cream. Everything else seems to be giving me a rash recently, so it’s back to basics for the next couple of months.

Do you use eye cream?

  • Again, something I don’t do. I used to use it pretty regularly but I didn’t feel it was doing much for me.

Do you have freckles?

  • I never used too but my partner keeps telling me I have a few faint ones.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

  • I have only ever had about 3 spots that I can actually pop! My skin has always been very good to me in regards to that.

Did you ever have to use pro-active?

  • Nope. I just didn’t feel the need for it.

What foundation do you use?

  • Currently, the one I have open is actually a Primark one. I am loving it!


  • Collection Lasting Perfection always!

Do you know your undertone colour?

  • I heard you can tell this by the veins on your wrist. I have actually got blue and purple undertones on the veins, which I think means it’s neutral?

What do you think of fake eyelashes?

  • They are SO hard too put on! I feel like they are a lot of effort for what it is worth. Although, when I see people with them on, that have applied them correctly, they look amazing! I just haven’t quite got the technique right yet.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?

  • Yes, I am aware of that. Do I do it? Nope!

What brand of mascara do you use?

  • I am loving the B. mascara at the moment. Although *linking back to the last question* I am in need of a new one. It has been open for a fairly long time now.

Sephora or Mac?

  • MAC I am completely against because of animal testing. Sephora? I have actually NEVER tried.

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?

  • Definitely not.

What makeup tools do you use in makeup application?

  • To apply my foundation it’s always the B. Beauty Sponges. I do also use brushes for some of my cream products – my cream contour and highlight, I find the finished look much smoother when I use a brush. Eyelash curlers are a tool as well right? As well as tape and a makeup wipe (well, normally a wet wipe to be honest). I need to get that flick on point one way or another.

Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?

  • I always use a primer for my eyelids, they are so dry! I don’t know how well the product would go on without one.

For the face?

  • Always! Again, my skin is so dry the makeup would just cling without one.

What is your favourite eyeshadow (colour or shade)?

  • Revolution Makeup is killing the game with their eyeshadows! I have always been a massive fan of them. I love the brown shade they have in their Iconic 2 Palette – I just can’t find the single anywhere!

Do you use a pencil or liquid eyeliner?

  • Is an appropriate answer to this question both?

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

  • Yeah, that happens quite a lot! The joy of being clumsy I suppose.

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?

  • The end look is beautiful! I just don’t use them, there is too much mess that can be made. Again, I am clumsy!

Do you use mineral makeup?

  • I don’t really know what that means.

What is your favourite lipstick?

  • I’m much more of a nude girl. I love a good brown based nude colour.

How about lipgloss?

  • Studio London lip glosses are my favourite.

What is your favourite blush to use?

  • I just don’t get excited about blush, I never really use it. If I had to choose one though, it would be one in the Revolution Blush Palette.

Do you buy your makeup on eBay?

  • No, I did once, it gave me a rash. That was the end of my makeup purchasing on eBay.

Do you like drugstore makeup?

  • ALWAYS! I feel high-end is just over-priced.

Do you go to CCO’s? (cosmetic company outlets)?

  • I don’t think I have ever been to one. I just like my local Superdrug, Boots and my online shops!

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?

  • I would like too. Whether or not I would benefit though, I just feel they are so general. If I was to do one I would want to do a one-on-one

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?

  • I am clumsy at everything.

Name a makeup crime that you hate?

  • Noticeably overlined lips and when foundation doesn’t match their skin.

Do you like colourful shades of makeup (lipstick, eyeshadow) or neutral ones?

  • I love the colourful looks! It’s just something I don’t do that often anymore. I would rather have a more natural look. Colourful looks are something I am really wanting to get back into though – Keep an eye out!

Which celebrity always has great makeup?

  • Almost all of them! I love Blake Lively, Holly Willoughby, Kendall Jenner and Demi Lovato just to name a few.

If you could leave the house using just ONE makeup item, what would you use?

  • Brow Pencil.

Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?

  • I always do, I work with no makeup on. Extra 20 minutes in bed or makeup application? Bed wins every time.

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?

  • No. Wearing makeup makes me feel so much more confident, but I am a tired girl.

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?

  • Revolution.

What do you think of Makeup??

  • It can bring the best out in people, their most confident self. I love how it can be used widely. Every single person uses it in a different way. I just love it and miss being part of the makeup community.
Again, like I mentioned at the start. I enjoy makeup so much, just haven’t had the motivation/productivity to be on the bandwagon. I am jumping straight back on!
If you answer these questions make sure you let me know! I would LOVE to see all of your answers! Jade xo
