The Makeup Tag – Blogging 101

Yesterday’s Blogging 101 assignment was to participate in a blogging event, however there are no events for beauty bloggers, so I decided to ‘The Makeup Tag’ as seen on bostonbeautybuzz instead – I feel that this is a way of connecting with the wider community of beauty bloggers. I’d love to see anyone else’s posts of this tag as well!

What foundation do you use? My everyday foundation is now L’Oreal’s True Match in Rose Ivory, however I also use Urban Decay’s Naked Skin in 0.5. I love both, but I find the Urban Decay one slightly easier to blend.

How about concealer? Collection’s Lasting Perfection concealer – I use it every day, and I love the feel of it and that it is so blendable.

What do you think of fake eyelashes? I’ve never used them, and I don’t think that I ever will – I prefer to not have too much on my eyes as I wear glasses most of the time.

What brand of mascara do you use? I don’t really use mascara, but I do have a small tube of Benefit’s They’re Real mascara. It is definitely the best mascara I’ve ever tried, I’m just not a fan of the product in general.

Sephora or MAC? I’ve never been to a Sephora, but I understand that it’s a department store with lots of makeup brands, so I would liken it to my local Debenhams, and I shop there all the time (even though I love MAC, we don’t have one near where I live, so I only own one MAC lipstick).

What makeup tools do you use in your makeup application? My RealTechniques and EcoTools brushes – I’ve only had them a few months and I really love how they’ve changed the way I apply makeup.

Do you use a makeup base/primer for your face or eyes? I use Benefit’s POREfessional primer on my face most days, and then I use Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion on my eyes on special occasions.

What is your favourite eyeshadow (colour or shade)? I love my Urban Decay Naked palette, and my favourite shades are Sidecar and Half Baked.

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows? I’ve never used a pigment eyeshadow, but I’d love to try, some of them that I’ve seen look amazing – the colours look really intense.

What is your favourite lipstick? My most recent lip purchase of MAC’s See Sheer – it’s such a lovely pinkish red that can be worn during the day or at night.

How about lipgloss? I don’t own any lipglosses, and I haven’t used them for a long time – I’m not a huge fan of them as I always feel that they make my lips too sticky.

Do you like drugstore makeup? I love it! Yes I love my Urban Decay stuff, but most of the stuff I buy myself is from Boots – I love Bourjois and Maybelline, as well as many others, and I will always love MUA.

Name a makeup crime that you hate. I’m not sure about this one – probably when people wear so much foundation that they look orange – it was a popular look when I was at school to have bleached blonde hair and an orange face (not a good look on anyone)!

Do you like colourful shades of makeup or more neutral ones? I do love a bit of colour (see my love of blue eyeshadow), but I prefer to use more neutral colours most of the time.

What is your favourite blush to use? I only own one blush, but I love it – Bourjois’ Little Round Pot in Rose Ambré. It smells so nice, and just gives a little hint of pink.

If you could leave the house using just ONE makeup item, what would you use? Probably eyeliner – I often go out with just this on.

Could you ever leave the house with no makeup on? Yeah, I do it all the time – I only started wearing makeup during the day in the past couple of months.

In your opinion, what is the best makeup line? As you can probably tell, I love Urban Decay, as well as Benefit, but the brand that I really want loads from is BareMinerals (however I have only used their products once when my friend did my makeup).

What do you think of makeup? I don’t really know how to answer this question – it seems strange to ask this to beauty bloggers. Of course I love it and the ability it gives me to express myself, and I love seeing what other people do with it too!

Hope you enjoyed reading this, and that you all have a beautiful day,

Becca x
