I hope you are staying warm like me in this snowy weather. If you are where it’s warm I’m jealous!
I was inspired by The Beauty Section to do this tag. I thought it would be a fun way for you to get to know me better. So read on to see my answers to the 30 questions.
30 Beauty Questions Tag
1 – Do you remember your first makeup item?
I honestly don’t remember, but it was probably a lipstick. I’ve always loved lipsticks.
2 – Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
My perfect mascara would be one that lifts, lengthens, and holds a curl. I have yet to find one that I love. So I am open to suggestions.
3 – What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?
I’m a medium to full coverage girl. I like my freckles to peak through.
4 – Favorite high end brand?
I’ve not had much experience with high end brands. I do love Anastasia Beverly Hills and Charlotte Tilbury.
5 – What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
Huda Beauty, Benefit Cosmetics, Becca. NARS. The list goes on and on.
6 – Favorite drugstore brand?
If you’ve followed me for awhile you know it’s Maybelline. I use Maybelline all the time.
7 – Do you wear fake eyelashes?
Yes. I say I wear them 50% of the time depending on the look I’m doing. Sometimes I hate putting them on, but I have yet to find a mascara that makes me look like I have lashes in pictures.
8 – Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
I go out a lot without makeup, but if I’m rushing and can only pick one thing it would have to be lipstick.
9 – What is your most cherished beauty product?
Tough one, but I think my Jaclyn Hill Vault Collection would be it. I love all the palettes.
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?
Probably too much. I’m always running out of something or seeing something I want. Sales pull me in when I go to buy one product and I end buying more.
11 – Do you have a “beauty budget” or you spend freely?
I’m on a budget for sure. I don’t always stick to it, but I try to plan out what I spend especially if it’s a lot for one product.
12 – Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
YES!!! I try to shop sales or have coupons as much as possible. I’m a rewards member at Ulta so I shop there as much as I can.
13 – What type of product do you buy the most of?
Eye shadow and lipstick. I love so many.
14 – Is there a brand that you absolutely can’t stand?
No. I haven’t tried a brand that I don’t like.
15 – Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?
I try to avoid it, but not all the time.
16 – Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?
Ulta is my favorite place. It’s the only makeup store in my town and like that they carry drugstore and high end so I can get all my favorites.
17 – Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
I love trying new skincare products and I’m always looking for something affordable that works great.

Bath and Bodyworks is my favorite.

Yes, I use NYX waterproof eye primer all the time. I have hooded eyes and this helps me keep my shadows in place.
