Beauty Tag

wpid-2014-09-11-17-20-51_deco.jpg

I saw this on Karalee’s Blog,  Tales of Belle Beauty & the Books, and thought I would do it too. I never really talk about my makeup on my blog much because I usually am posting sweaty makeup free, or makeup smeared selfies of me running.  But now that I’m actually a consultant I think I should start talking more about my personal daily skincare/beauty regiment. 

Plus it’s autumn here and the weather is (eventually) going to be getting cooler and yeah I’m one of those girls that wears makeup when they go running or when they head to a Les Mills Bodypump class or yoga session. I love makeup, I love my eyeliner and mascara! I think the makeup that I wear the least is lipstick, but that’s just my style (and my tiny lips 💋). PLUS I not actually have a solid skincare routine that I adore and a makeup line I love and trust 💗 So heck yeah, Beauty Tag!

  1. Do you remember your first makeup item? No, it was a really inexpensive mascara from a drug store.
  2. Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications? One that makes my lashes as full and long as the can be ❤️ and it has to be cruelty free! Yes I have FINALLY found the perfect mascara here, I will never be without it!
  3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation? I prefer one that is full coverage and one that works on preventing signs of aging, minimizing fine lines/wrinkles. I use Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation. I’m not a fan of powder foundations, they tend to dry skin out over time so I keep my bronzing powder to a minimum.
  4. Favourite high end brand? Well I used predominantly all Arbonne products now and they are a bit high end. But I know I can trust the purity in formulas and they feel amazing on my skin! I still occasionally use E.L.F. eyeshadow shades.
  5. What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t? I’ve dabbled with just about every brand I want to try. Since I stay with cruelty free brands, it’s a more limited selection (but growing!).
  6. Favorite drugstore brand? NYX, great eyeshadows!
  7. Do you wear fake eyelashes? No I don’t need to ❤️😏
  8. Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without? Light sunscreen, otherwise you see me bare faced a lot when I run/work out.
  9. What is your most cherished beauty product? Seriously it’s my skincare regiment (RE9)!
  10. How often do you shop for makeup? Do you like to pick up an item here and there or get lots of goodies at once? I shop as I run low, or when i see a fabulous eyeshadow or lip color! Or when a new Arbonne product releases!!!
  11. Do you have a “beauty budget” or do you spend freely? I spend freely, but I have my everyday look which is eyeshadow free for the most part. I reserve eyeshadows for when I go out. Otherwise it’s my skincare regiment, foundation, concealer, sheer glow highlighter stick, (summer -bronzer), eyeliner, mascara and lip 👄 color. So my budget is manageable while still making me gorgeous ☺️😏
  12. Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics? Being an Independent Arbonne Consultant you get a fabulous discount (35% off most items). So it makes a high end quality products verrrry affordable!
  13. What type of product do you buy the most of? Skincare because all the makeup in world won’t matter if you don’t take care of your skin!
  14. Is there a brand that you absolutely can’t stand? And that still test on animals.
  15. Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates? Yes I do. I also avoid products that contain animal ingredients or are tested on animals. 
  16. Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup? Arbonne  it’s WHY I became a consultant, I LOVE everything they carry! I shopped too much from them to NOT be a consultant!
  17. Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine? Now that I found everything that works, and works well, I’ll stick with my routine. But I do like experimenting with color so I will try new eyeshadow colors, liners, etc…
  18. Favourite bath and body brand? Arbonne, no seriously! They have a new Rescue and Renew line that is like spending a day at the spa, especially when you use the new essential oils at the same time. Before Arbonne, and still occasionally I use Lush.
  19. If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose? I think I made this pretty clear, Arbonne 🙂💚
  20. What brand do you think has the best packaging? Hmmm E.L.F. I love black 
  21. Which celebrity always has great makeup? For glam, Kat Von D. For every day natural, Jessica Biel 
  22. Do you belong to any online makeup communities? Just the Arbonne consultant group where we give tips and ideas. I do follow beauty bloggers.
  23. Favourite Beauty Gurus? The Beauty Bean
  24. Do you like multi-functional products like lip and cheek stains? Yes! The Arbonne Sheer Glow Highlight Stick is pretty amazing!
  25. Are you clumsy in putting on makeup? No, I take my time when I do my makeup to go out and my day look is fast because I do it every day.
  26. Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes? Yes, Arbonne carries a basic makeup primer and a primer specifically for eyes, they are fabulous!!
  27. How many hair products do you use on a typical day? I use shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair that’s very very specific because my hair doesn’t hold color well. My stylist recommended Framesi Color Lover Shampoo/Conditioner. I also use My Amazing Full & Thick Secret because I have very fine hair. It helps hold my style while thickening the look of my hair. 
  28. What do you apply first, concealer or foundation? I apply concealer under my eyes first, then foundation. 
  29. Do you ever consider taking makeup classes? Yes, I have been considering it pretty seriously of late, but first, my nutrition certification!
  30. What do you love about makeup? I feel it’s like adding spices and seasonings to a fabulous dish. Makeup brings out the subtle delicacies of your look. Makeup allows you to accent your best features. It’s fun, it’s as empowering to wear makeup as it is to take it all off.
