The 30 Beauty Questions Tag

When I saw the 30 Question Disney Tag, I also saw the 30 Beauty Question Tag on Beauty by Ellie. And I thought it would be a fun thing to do as well, so here are my answers to each of these 30 questions.

  1. Do you remember your first makeup item? I don't remember the brand or which exact product it was from them, but it was an black eyeliner. That or my mom's Maybelline Great Lash mascara as she had that forever.
  2. Describe your perfect mascara? My perfect mascara would be one that lifts and curls my lashes without needing a curler, while at the same time giving them volume.
  3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from a foundation? I honestly go back and forth on what I want. Some days I want something super light and the next I'll want buildable to full coverage.
  4. Favorite high end brand? I love Tarte! It was my first ever non-drug store brand and they have yet to fail me with anything I've tried out.
  5. What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but haven't? As a year ago I switched to being cruelty free makeup/beauty, there were a bunch of brands I never tried. And recently Stila just joined the cruelty-free ranks so I really want to try some of their products.
  6. Favorite drugstore brand? NYX is my favorite brand from the drugstore. Their products make up the vast majority of my collection. Some day I would love to enter the NYX Face Awards but first I need to try creating more artsy/original looks before I would even attempt to do that.
  7. Do you wear fake eyelashes? On a regular basis? No. But I do wear them for events or nights out.
  8. Is there any kind of makeup that you can't leave the house without? I can't leave the house without a liquid lipstick and some eyeliner.
  9. What is your most cherished makeup item? I would have to say the Tarte Collector's case as it is my most expensive piece of makeup in my collection. And it has enough makeup to create a full look for every day of the year.
  10. How often do you shop for makeup? I used to shop for makeup every month, but I've been trying to cut it back to just once every other month. Or when I run out of something that I use all the time.
  11. Do you have a beauty budget or spend freely? I mainly just spend freely but I'm always restricted to a budget as I don't have a lot of extra money where I can just go buy a bunch of extra things whenever I want.
  12. Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics? As I mainly shop from Ulta, I always use my rewards card as it helps me out a lot. And I try to keep the sales in mind when I'm shopping, but not always.
  13. What type of product do you buy the most? Liquid lipsticks. I have more than I could ever need or wear.
  14. Is there a brand that you absolutely can't stand? Too Faced. I'm allergic to almost all their product and they have horrible customer service. I can't stand behind that.
  15. Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens and sulphates? No as I don't know much about them, but I always like when they don't include that type of thing.
  16. Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup? As I said earlier, I shop mainly at Ulta.
  17. Do you like trying skincare products or do you keep a certain routine? My routine is just testing products I get in my monthly subscription, but I generally don't do much for skincare when I probably should.
  18. Favorite bath and body brand? Lush.
  19. If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose? I'm torn between Tarte and NYX as I love them both equally. If it came down to money and variety though, I would have to go with NYX. Sorry Tarte.
  20. What brand do you think has the best packaging? I don't have a lot of their products, but I love Kat Von D's packaging.
  21. What celebrity always has great makeup? Demi Lovato!
  22. Do you belong to any online makeup communities? I am part of two Facebook groups: Beauty & Fashion Blog Squad and Beauties on Fire.
  23. Five favorite beauty gurus? Tati, JKissa, Glam and Gore, Jeffree Star, Mariah Leonard, and Zoella... okay that's six but they're all my favs!
  24. Do you like multi-functional products like lip and cheek tints and stains? I don't like them, they just have such a weird feeling to me.
  25. Are you clumsy in putting on makeup? Sometimes when I'm in a rush. But I try to make it look as good as possible. If it looks bad or clumsy, I'll generally just wipe it off and go without makeup for the day.
  26. Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes? Yes! But sometimes it's just what ever concealer I have leftover after spreading it under my eyes.
  27. How many hair products do you use on a typical day? Maybe 1 with that being dry shampoo, otherwise I only use hair products every two-three days after I shower.
  28. What do you apply first - concealer or foundation? Foundation for sure if I'm going to wear both.
  29. Do you ever consider taking makeup classes? No. I have learned makeup by myself or with the help of YouTube so why bother taking classes for it.
  30. What do you love about makeup? I love just creating random fun looks. It's just something that always you to express yourself.
