Beauty Blogger Tag 2017


Beauty Blogger Tag 2017

I love tags but I haven't done one in too long so I thought I would do another beauty blogger tag. This is different to my old one and my old one I wrote too long ago so some of the answers have most definitely changed, so here it goes!

1. Do you remember your first makeup item?

Honestly I can't remember the first makeup product which I used/brought. The first one which I can actually remember was a heart shaped makeup box which contained eyeshadows, lip colours, blushes and powder. Me and my best friend (in year 6) both had them and we used to love them so much and thats when I actually really started getting into makeup!

2. Describe your favourite mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications? 

I love love love mascaras and I have had a lot of favourites through the years. I look for a mascara which volumizes as well as  lengthening. I also think that it is important to find a mascara that is easy to apply and dries quick as well as one which does not clump. I am yet to find a perfect mascara, I may need to invest in a higher end one but at the moment I am loving the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and the No7 Dramatic Lift Mascara

3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?

I love a good coverage foundation as my skin has many imperfections. However, I wouldn't go for a full coverage one as they tend to feel too heavy on the skin; I'd rather a medium coverage with concealer over the top.

4. What is your favourite high end brand?

Definitely Mac and Urban Decay.

5. What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven't? 

I really want to try out Kat Von D as all my friends rave about it but I haven't yet. I also would like to try products from Chanel and Two Faced.

6. Favourite drug store brand?

I'm going to have to say Maybelline as it is has been my go to makeup for as long as I can remember.

7. Do you wear fake eyelashes?

I love fake eyelashes, they give me so much extra confidence but I  really struggle to apply them and they also come off quite easily so I tend to stick to mascara. 

8. Is there any kind of makeup you can't leave the house without?

I can obviously leave the house without any kind of makeup but I almost always have to be wearing at least BB cream, eyebrow powder and mascara.

9. What is your most cherished beauty product?

I'm going to have to say my Morphe palettes, I literally love them.

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 for makeup now and then, I am much more of a clothes person when it comes to shopping. When I do shop for makeup, I tend to buy one or two products only as I have recently started to shop at higher end shops for my makeup products.

11. Do you have a beauty budget or spend freely?

I don't like to give myself a specific budget as if I like something then I'll probably end up buying it anyway but I do limit my spending if theres other things I need to buy; so not really.

12. Do you use coupons, vouchers and discounts when you shop for cosmetics?

I don't tend to, I have a Boots and Superdrug advantage card but thats about it. I also like Kiko's sales as they have some really cheap products in there!

13. What type of product do you buy the most of?

Most definitely eyeshadow palettes, I'm a huge hoarder of them!

14. Is there a brand you absolutely can't stand?

Not that I've come across, no.

15. Do you avoid certain ingredients in products such as paragons?

No, maybe I should research this more...

16. Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup?

Selfridges, they have so many makeup brands that you can't find in high street shops. I have to say it gets pretty busy in there though. 

17. Do you like trying new skincare products?

I love testing new skincare products but I am rather hesitant to stick to my original skincare routine.

18. Favourite bath and body brand?

Body Shop and Lush.

19. If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would it be?

I would be happy if I could only buy from Mac, I don't own lots from there but their makeup is amazing and they are professional worldwide. 

20. What brand do you think has the best packaging?

Two Faced packaging really appeals to me, the design is so pretty and stands out.

21. Which celebrity always has great makeup?

Kylie Jenner and Bella Hadid. 

22. Do you belong to any online makeup communities?

I have just signed up to Bellashoot - username emilycarter. 

23. 5 favourite beauty gurus?

Jeffree Star, Holly Boon, Kady Mcdermott, Chloe Morton and Hollie Fx. 

24. Do you like multifunctional products?

I haven't tried any but I don't really see the need for them. I do use eyeshadows as highlighter now and then.

25. Are you clumsy at putting on makeup?

Not unless I'm in a rush.

26. Do you use a primer?

I use a Mac Primer but only on weekends.

27. How many hair products do you use on a typical day?

It really does depend on the condition of my hair on the day. Usually I don't use any hair products but if my hairs dirty or oily then I will use dry shampoo, if it is dry then I will use anti frizz serums. 

28. What do you apply first: concealer or foundation?

Always foundation, you waste so much product if you put concealer on first.

29. Do you ever consider makeup classes?

I am going to college to study beauty therapy and makeup towards the end of this year, so definitely.

30. What do you love about makeup?

I literally love so much about makeup. You can cover up your insecurities, which I'm not telling you to do, but this makes me feel so much better about myself. You can also improve features you already have, like enhancing your lips and lengthening your eyelashes. You can also experiment different colours which I LOVE.

So that is it, my beauty blogger tag. I actually really enjoyed writing this so if you have any more tag requests then please leave them in the comments below!

Lots of love, Emily.
