Makeup, we, girls, love it. In this 20 questions, I share some things with you. I will tell you all about my favorite products and more things you didn’t know.
Do you remember your first makeup item?
When I was in the 6th grade everybody started wearing makeup. We started with mascara, so this was my first item. I bought the cheapest one I could find because I thought it was a waste of money. The mascara was very bad and later I started buying more expensive ones. When I used one of my mom’s mascaras, I fall in love with expensive mascaras.
Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
My current favorite is one from Lancôme, this one gives much volume to my lashes, it is very black and that is what I want it a mascara, even as longer and thicker lashes. But I don’t want a mascara which turns your eyes into spiders and that is not what this mascara does for your lashes.
What kind of coverage do you prefer from a foundation?
I want a foundation which covers red spots on my skin but gives it a natural look. I don’t want a foundation which gives your face an orange or plastic look. I don’t want to look like a Barbie doll, I want to look natural with a foundation you don’t see.
Favorite high-end brand?
For lipsticks Dior for sure, I really love this brand. All kinds, the Sugar Lipscrub is amazing, just like the Dior Addicted lipsticks, liquid lipsticks, and glosses. I will buy the tattoo lip soon, the colors are quite BAM, but they look amazing.
What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
I really love many brands and I have tried a lot of them already. But brands I wanted to try are La Mer and La Praire, these two are so expensive, but I am very curious about this brands. So when I am a millionaire or something I will run to the store to buy them directly and tell you guys everything about it.
Favorite drugstore brand?
To be honest I never buy makeup at a drugstore. I don’t know which brand would be my favorite.
Do you wear fake eyelashes?
No, I tried ones but I don’t think they give my lashes more. I just like my lashes they way they are.
Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
Mascara for sure, I look like a baby when I leave the house without mascara. I feel really young and naked when I don’t wear it and when I look in the mirror, I see more tired because my eyes are smaller.
What is your most cherished beauty product?
My most loved product is my Too Faced high lighter. I don’t wear high lighters that much, but you can also wear it as eyeshadow and it just looks very fab. It is not too much and the box is so cute in the heart shape. I bought this in the Sephora when I was in Lyon.
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 go to many times, I think, but I don’t buy always a thing. The last time I bought something was in Lyon and the next time will be Friday. When there are things on sale, I can buy much but other times only the things I really need.
Do you have a “beauty budget” or you spend freely?
I buy whatever I like when I have the money, I don’t mind spending much money on makeup or other beauty products, I want them to be good quality and that is all that matters to me.
Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards, and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
Yes, I love a discount, the more money I can save, the better because I can spend it on more makeup, clothes or other things. My saved money will get a great destination.
What type of product do you buy the most of?
My lipstick collection is the biggest, I think. I just love all those shades.
Is there a brand that you absolutely can’t stand?
Essence, some people love it, but it is just really cheap stuff which is so bad in quality, that it is even for that small amount of money a waste of your money.
Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?
No not special. I just want good brands so I know I don’t rune my skin with it, but I don’t know what they put in it.
Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?
My favorite store is The Douglas, a perfume store with many brands and good staff who can help you with your questions.
Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
Ow yes, when one of my favorite brands have a new product, I run to the store to buy it. When Lancôme comes with a new mascara I want to try it and when Dior comes with a new lipstick the same counts.
Favorite bath and body brand?
Rituals is a brand I really like, but I also love things from Lush, or things that smell very sweet.
If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose?
Dior, I love their lipsticks and they also have great other products. I don’t own many of them but I like them. The blush is great even as the foundation and the mascaras, so if I have to choose one brand it would be Dior.
What brand do you think has the best packaging?
Too Faced have awesome packages, but for the brand, it looks kinda cheap, because it comes in paper. So I think my favorite package is from Guerlain, I don’t own anything from it, but I love the hearts they use in their packages. It looks like I’m a heart lover right?
Which celebrity always has great makeup?
Do you belong to any online makeup communities?
I am part of some Facebook Groups, but I am not very active in these groups.
Favorite Beauty Gurus
To be honest, I never watch makeup tools to make great makeup looks, I pick a pencil and I try things on my face and I see what it becomes.
Do you like multifunctional products like lip and cheek stains?
I have a lip and cheek stain, but I don’t wear it often. I use my highlighter as eyeshadow and my eyeshadow as liquid eyeliner, but I make it that way and it is not specially made for it.
Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Sometimes, I am good in putting my mascara a bit next to my lashes. But you can remove it easily.
Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
I use a maximizer serum mascara sometimes and next to that I wear some powder under my eyeshadow when I wear eyeshadow.
How many hair products do you use on a typical day?
Not much, sometimes a cream or foam when my hair needs it, but not on a daily base.
What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
I first do my foundation and then the concealer, but I don’t wear concealer often.
Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?
Not really, but I would like to learn more about it. I think it would be fun to know more about makeup and the difference between brands and things like that.
What do you love about makeup?
The way it changes your face, you can do so many magical things with just a bit makeup and you can make whatever you want. You can look very natural but also perfect for Halloween. You can make your face a canvas and your makeup your paint.
