Make-Up Tag

I found this makeup tag while browsing some of my favorite blogs and I love answering questions! Disclaimer: I am not fond of make-up because I don’t know how to use it. I’m more on the skin care area and DIYs… I really enjoy watching youtube videos and if monetary restraints weren't a problem, then I would probably spend more on makeup but for me skin care comes first because if you have good skin, you can get away with minimal make up. 
Here we go…
  1. How many times do you wash your face daily? ——-> Twice a day: upon waking/during bath and upon arriving home/before going to bed.
  2. What skin type do you have? Dry, oily, or combi skin? ——-> I have Normal Skin. 
  3. What is your current facial wash? ——-> Etude House Green Tea. I bought this yesterday and the results are great. Its my new favorite facial wash. :)
  4. Do you exfoliate? How often? ——-> I exfoliate once week.
  5. What product do you use to exfoliate? ——-> St. Ives Apricot Scrub
  6. What moisturizer do you use? ——-> I use Pond's White Beauty Daily Spotless Lightening during the day and I love that it has SPF. Olay Complete Night Cream before going to bed.
  7. Do you have freckles/sun spots? ——-> Nope. I find freckles cute though. :)
  8. Do you use eye cream? ——-> Not yet.
  9. Do you or did you have acne prone skin? ——-> I used to have plenty of acne during my teens but I'm sure glad I'm over that phase, my self-esteem plummeted downwards during that time! Now I only have 2-3 pimples during my cycle.
  10. Did you ever have to use pro-activ? ——-> Nope, maybe my teenage self would've as I literally bought tons of anti-acne solutions back then just to rid myself of pimples but now I'm all good.
  11. What foundation do you use? ——-> I really like using powder foundations, the one with the pink compact from In2it.
  12. How about concealer? ——-> I don’t have a concealer anymore. 
  13. Do you know your undertone color? ——-> Yes, I have a yellowish undertone. 
  14. What do you think of fake eyelashes? ——-> I was only able to use them once during my sister's wedding but its not my thing when it come to everyday wear. I'm good with mascara and curler.
  15. Did you know that you’re supposed to change mascara every 3 months? ——-> Yes, but mine lasts up to a year because I don’t use it often. 
  16. What brand of mascara do you use? ——-> I use Clinique.
  17. Sephora or Mac? ——-> I've heard a lot of raves from Mac, so I'd go for that one but since its kinda expensive(I'm stingy when it comes to make up as I prefer skin care products) I think I'll try it once I have my own job.
  18. Do you have a Mac pro card? ——-> Nope.
  19. What makeup tools do you use in makeup application? ——-> I don't have one...
  20. Do you use makeup base or primer for your eyes? ——-> No. 
  21. For the face? ——-> BB cream is already the primer and foundation.
  22. What is your favorite eyeshadow shade? ——-> I love neutrals...
  23. Do you use pencil or liquid liner? ———> I rarely wear liner because it makes me look mature. I only use them during occasions when I want to amp up my look.
  24. How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil? ——-> I used to but not anymore! Practice makes perfect. :)
  25. What do you think of pigment eyeshadows? ——-> I'm not so sure as I prefer to stick to my neutral colored ones.
  26. Do you use mineral makeup? ——-> Nope but I will try someday.
  27. What is your favorite “go-to” lipstick? Why? ——-> Maybelline Mocha! Its my MLBB shade and I love it to bits! I'm not a lipstick person but I'm glad my mom bought it for me because its the perfect shade for my natural look that I always go for.
  28. How about lip gloss? Why? ———> I am happy with just my Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm
  29. What is your favorite blush to use and why? ——-> Maybelline Dream Bouncy blush! Its such a travel friendly blush and I just love the shade!
  30. Do you buy your makeup on ebay/ebay.ph? ——-> No.
  31. Do you like drugstore makeup? ———> Yes! I'm frugal when it comes to cosmetics so drugstore make-up is the bomb. 
  32. Do you go to cosmetic company outlets? ——-> I haven’t been to one…
  33. Did you ever consider taking makeup classes? ——-> I used to! But I'd rather invest on actual make-up and practice applying myself. Youtube videos are awesome!
  34. Are you clumsy in putting on makeup? ——-> Sometimes haha
  35. Name a makeup crime that you hate. ——-> 'Clown looking make up' Blush applied too much and wasn't blended properly. 
  36. Do you like colorful shades of makeup or neutral ones? ——-> I prefer neutral ones mainly because I'm into natural looking make-up. I'm also a firm believer that less is more.
  37. Which celebrity always has great makeup? ——-> Emma Watson. I love how she can pull off barely there make up and she still looks absolutely gorgeous.
  38. If you could leave the house using just one makeup item, what would you use? ——-> My BB cream or Olay hint of foundation of course! It’s the best item for lazy people like me. 
  39. Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on? ——-> Actually, I often do. 
  40. In your opinion, what is the best makeup line? ——-> MAC, Shu Uemura, Maybelline and NYX
  41. What do you think of makeup? ——-> Make-up should only be used to improve one’s appearance and not hide imperfections - there’s proper skin care to fight it. But one should never rely too much on make-up. You have to be confident in your own skin.
  42. What is your favorite “quote” related to makeup? ——-> Less is more.
  43. If you were a makeup tool/product, what would you be and why? ——-> I’d be a lip and cheek tint! I'm so into multi-tasking and it makes life more interesting. :)
