Sorry for doing another tag, I’ve honestly been so busy since it’s almost Chinese new Year. I had to go through and get rid of things I’m not using anymore. Also, I’ve been playing a lot of video games lately to unwind. I have a few new face masks I want to try this week and hopefully I’ll be able to take some pictures for the blog.
How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
At the age of 15, I was fascinated with wearing makeup but my school was against wearing make up so I would always run home and do my makeup to wear at home.
Who taught you to apply makeup?
Mostly myself, my mom wasn’t the type to wear any make up. I did it myself a few years and one year Michelle Phan started her channel. I learned a few tips off her and started branching out more.
What’s your favorite eye makeup look to wear?
I don’t really have a favourite but I am always fond of the simplicity of just wearing eyeliner.
What’s your favorite makeup brand?
One of the most expensive brand I bought when I was younger was Shu Uemura and until this day it’s still one of my favorite make up brands. But I definitely have a few that I love.
Do you wear foundation on a daily basis?
Yes, mostly because skin is not even or sometimes I wake up with a few red patches.
Have you ever worn false eyelashes?
Yes, when I was in high school I use to wear them everyday and this continued through to college. After graduating, I slowly stopped wearing it and now I just wear it on special occasions.
What makeup do you wear everyday?
Foundation, eyebrow pencil and eyeliner.
Do you prefer high end brands or drugstore?
I have a mix of both but I definitely have more high end brands since they’re a lot easier to exchange or return if I don’t like the product.
What color are your eyes?
What color of eyeshadows make your eyes pop?
I really like brown, pink and purple on me.
Do you use makeup brushes? What brand?
I have combinations that I use ranging from Japonesque, Elf (bamboo), Tokidoki (discontinued), M.A.C (holiday mini set) and Bobbi Brown.
Do you prefer lipstick, lipgloss, or neither?
I have a few lipsticks but I prefer neither. My natural lip colour is nice and I don’t really like products on my lips.
What’s 1 makeup product you cant live without?
Foundation! I don’t think I ever walked out of the house without any on.
Why do you wear makeup?
For me, I like to see the change and enhancing some of my features. Another reason, is that it really boosts my self esteem.
Glitter or no glitter?
What is one makeup trend you never understood?
Dark & coloured lipstick, and spider eyelashes.
Sponge or brush for applying foundation?
I prefer a sponge for foundation if it’s liquid. But if it’s a compact (M.A.C) I would prefer a brush.
Pencil, gel or liquid eyeliner?
I prefer liquid but I also like gel once in awhile.
Favorite era of makeup?
60s – 70s.
Finally, a tip you wish everyone knew:
Always use a eyeshadow primer, this helps a lot with greasy lids. Another is to put finishing powder first (only on your most oily parts) wait a few minutes and then put foundation on top. This has always worked wonders for me.
Thanks for staying to the end! If you decide to use this make up tag, comment below so I can read yours too!
