Re: Beauty Questionnaire!

Heh, I'm super minimalistic with make up (except a couple times every year when I go all out). My skincare collection (almost 3 regimen) is ~2 shoebox full while my make up collection is about .5 shoebox full.

 

SKINCARE

-What skin type do you have? Combination

-How many times do you wash your face daily? 2. Water in the morning, cleanser at night.

-What is your current facial wash? L'oreal 360 Go Clean when wearing make up, Clinique liquid soap when not wearing make up.

-Do you exfoliate? Yes

-What brand do you use?  Clinique scrubs

-What moisturizer do you use? heh, 6 different ones depending on season, treatment, and skin condition.

-Do you have freckles? Nope

-Do you use eye cream? Yes.

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin? Just a giant pimple every other month.

-Did you ever use Pro-activ? Nope

 

MAKE-UP

-What foundation do you use? none due to my changing undertone. Laura Mercier or Boots no.7 Tinted moisturizer + Clinique sheer powder for me

-How about concealer? Amazing Concealer

-Do you know your undertone color? Yellow, but due to flush/blush, neutral make up works better

-What do you think of fake eyelashes? too bothersome.

-Did you know that you are suppose to change your mascara every 3 months? Yep. But I only change when it's dried (~1yr).

-What brand of mascara do you use? deluxe samples of Estee Lauder Volumnious, Tarte Light Camera Lashes, and Sephora

-What makeup tools do you use in make up application? powder brush, bluffy eyeshadow brush, angled liner brush

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes? only for special occasions

-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)? bronze, peach, orange, matte off-white

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner? pencil and gel liner.

-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil? Never

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows? cool.

-Do you use mineral makeup? BareMineral deluxe samples. Don't care for it

-What is your favorite lipstick? Make Up For Ever, Tarte lip stain,.

-How about lipgloss? Clinique plumping gloss.

-What is your favorite blush to use? my own DNA. I'm permanently blushing, so my blush depends on how much coverage my TM and powder give me.

 

MAKE ME CHOOSE

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay? Never

-Do you like drugstore makeup? for cheap thrills, mostly lip balm and occasional nail polish.

-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets) Nope

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes? Nope. Plenty of online how-tos. Practice make perfect.

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on? Assuming I don't have dark circle from lack of sleep or the monthly giant pimple, yes. I've got naturally bushy eye brows and permanent light blush, so if I'm meticulous about tweezing and skincare, I look fine (otherwise I look like a primate T.T). Dark circles doesn't bother me, it's a sign I'm a hard worker right? But angry red pimples make me a bit self-conscious and I tend to talk a bit faster and louder hoping to distract people from it.

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line? heh, there's at least 1 product in every line that I dislike.

-What do you think of Makeup?? It's for fun rather than necessity (except for concealer on my monthly giant pimples). it's like playing house. It enhance what I have, or help me to become a different character.

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on? Depends on my skin ... i think I can always use a little concealer and some eye brows

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line? I like most lines. I use a lot of Stila, Make Up For Ever, Nars, MAC, Smashbox on myself and in my makeup kit

-What do you think of Makeup?? I love makeup, it can definitely transform a person both inside and out. It's also an alter ego, you can be whoever you want by just transformation and a little bit of special FX Smiley Wink . I love that makeup is continously changing and it's never the same. You can look one way today and another way tomorrow.

Re: Beauty Questionnaire!

Sorry I couldn't get the questions to copy so I just numbered them!

SKINCARE

1.Combination

2.Twice

3.I was using Dermalogica Clean Start face wash but I switched to a derm suggested one by her line

4.Just with my Clarisonic

5.I use the brush head for acne-prone skin

6.Just whatever samples I have on hand. Currently it's the Bare Minerals Nourishing moisturizer.

7.Yep

8.Yes again it's whatever samples I have. Right now it's Origin's Plantscription and I do use a Clinique All About Eyes rollerball serum in the morning

9.Oh yeah! And clogged pores too. It's just lovely...

10.No way! That's like putting rat poison on your face!

 

MAKEUP

1. I like both the liquid and powder forms of the Benefit Hello Flawless, the Covergirl+Olay cream compact, the BareMinerals original and matte formulas, and the Dr.Jart+ BB cream

2.MUFE concealor palette No.1

3. No but I think it's yellow...

4. Love them and I wish I wore them more often

5. Yes and I actually do follow this because I have gotten eye infections before

6.Everything from Covergirl especially the lenghthening one and I also use anything from the Lashstash kit

7.A sponge for foundation, a fluffy powder prush, a small concealor brush, a thick eyeshadow brush, a blending brush, and occasionally a lip brush.

8.Only if I'm going out

9.A shimmery neutral palette is my go-to tool

10.I like felt tip pens and the NYX jumbo pencils

11.Not at all often and if I do it doesn't bother me

12.Never used them but I'd like to try the MUFE sparkle powders

13.Well I have some samples of BareMinerals...

14.I'm only 13 so I haven't used too many but I like Clinique and MUFE

15.Love them and I use Sephora Collection, Nars, Buxom, and whatever brands have the colors that I want

16. Don't use it often but I do like Nars

 

MAKE ME CHOOSE

1. No but I've been thinking about buying one of those 300 piece sample things!

2.Yes! It's cheap and not always badSmiley Happy

3. No but I really want to!

4.I would love to I just need to find the time

5.I don't think I'm clumsy but I'm not super skilled either. I am self-taught with the help of many articles and videos! My fave thing to do is expirement with makeup before I shower so I can just jump in and it will rinse off.

6.I hate very visible eyeliner, either wobbly lines or super thick and dark liquid liner lines.

7.Yes but they make me a little nervous. I use colorful shadows as liners and if I want a fun lip I add some clear gloss on top so it doesn't look too old for me!

8.I feel like they all do, but I can def spot a bad job if someone steps out for the papparazzi and it looks like they did it theirself

9.Right now tinted moisturizer/bb cream because my skin is badSmiley Sad

10.Yes I just don't want to run into anyone!

11.If I just finished doing a face mask after a shower I look ok...

12.I don't think there is one specific line thats good, but if I had to pick one it would probably be the Sephora Collection because there are good basics, nice variety, and most of them perform well

13. I think makeup is great for making you look and feel better, but be careful because it can make you look worse! It's so much fun to expirement with and it's my favorite thing to shop for. One thing I do wish is that all the women out there would take a worldwide makeup free day, just so we could see the natural beauty that we all have<3

Re: Beauty Questionnaire!

What an awesome questionnaire!

 

SKINCARE

-What skin type do you have?  Oily

-How many times do you wash your face daily? Twice

-What is your current facial wash? Right now, I alternate between the Clinique Liquid Facial Soap for oily skin for the morning, and the Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser at night, which I use with My Clarisonic Mia.  I also remove my makeup with the Caudalie Cleansing Water, which is also nifty to have in my gym bag for quick cleanups after my workout.

-Do you exfoliate? Definitely!

-What brand do you use?  I use both of Clinique’s scrubs:  The 7-Day Scrub, which has a creamy base for the fall and winter months; and the stronger Exfoliating Scrub for the warmer months.  I also exfoliate my lips with the Bliss sugar scrub.

-What moisturizer do you use?   I use the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel for daytime, and sometimes follow it up with a spritz of the Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray.  For evening, I use the Caudalie Vinosource Quenching Sorbet Crème.

-Do you have freckles? No

-Do you use eye cream?  I sure do.  For daytime I use the Clinique All About Eyes cream, and sometimes I use the All About Eyes De-Puffing Eye Massage Serum before going to the gym in the morning.  At night, I use the Shiseido Bio-Performance Super Eye Contour Cream. 

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin? Every once in a while I get hormonal breakouts but nothing that leaves any scarring or spots.

-Did you ever use Pro-activ? No.

 

MAKE-UP

-What foundation do you use? It depends on my mood, the weather and the occasion.  For everyday, I alternate between the Make Up For Ever HD foundation and the NARS Powder Foundation.  For evenings out or special occasions, I use the Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Mattifying Foundation which gives me more coverage. 

-How about concealer?  I alternate between the Make Up For Ever’s HD concealer and the MAC Pro Longwear concealer.

-Do you know your undertone color? Yes; years ago, I had a foundation custom-blended for me by Prescriptives which indicated that I had reddish-blue undertones, with a touch of yellow which makes color-matching foundation for me a little tricky.

-What do you think of fake eyelashes? I’ve never been brave enough to attempt wearing them myself but I think they’re great especially for dressy occasions and photographs.  I look forward to the day  when I can find the time and patience to learn how to apply them properly.

-Did you know that you are suppose to change your mascara every 3 months? Yes.

-What brand of mascara do you use? I’m currently alternating between my HG mascara, Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara and the Diorshow New Look mascara which I received as a deluxe sample.

-What makeup tools do you use in make up application? I definitely use lots of brushes, including  stippling and flat foundation brushes for my liquid foundation; a kabuki brush  to set my foundation or to apply powder foundation; angled and blending brushes for my eyeshadow; a very pointed brush for my gel eyeliner; sometimes an angled brush to apply and smudge pencil eyeliner; an angled brush to apply bronzer and a large blush brush, as well as a lip brush.  I also use a brush/comb from MAC to brush my eyebrows and to comb my lashes before applying mascara.

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?  Absolutely!  I’m a huge fan of the UD Primer Potion but the NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base is my HG. 

-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?  Since I spend most of my time at work, I love neutrals which doesn’t equate with boring.  When I want to a more intense look for evening, I love plums and smoky grays.

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner? I use gel liner and pencil liner depending on my mood.

-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil? Never

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows? I love them but I use them pretty sparingly.

-Do you use mineral makeup? I use the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural for touchups and sometimes alone (over primer or sunblock) on the weekend.

-What is your favorite lipstick?  MAC and Make Up For Ever.

-How about lipgloss? Definitely MAC Lipglass and Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss.

-What is your favorite blush to use? NARS and MAC

 

MAKE ME CHOOSE

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay? No; I never realized people did that.

-Do you like drugstore makeup? I love Great Lash mascara, which holds its own with the more upscale (read, expensive) brands.

-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)  No.

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes? I would love to!  I’ve learned to apply makeup through tutorials or by trial and error and knowing what I like.  However I would love to learn how to apply false eyelashes and liner to my waterline without getting squeamish. 

-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?  Only when I’m in a hurry or if I’m using something for the first time before a big event.

-Name a makeup crime that you hate?  Clownish, heavy makeup.  With all the natural formulations out there and techniques, there’s no excuse for anyone looking as if they’ve been made up by a mortician.

-Do you like colorful shades of makeup? Absolutely!  I love playing with color especially for evening and black-tie events.

-Which celebrity always has great make up?  Most of them do because they always have to be “on” but I would have to go with HalleBerry, who always looks flawless.

-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use? Lip gloss

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on? It depends on what was going on that day. 

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on? It depends on how tired I am. 

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line? At one time I would have unequivocally and without hesitation said, MAC!  Without a doubt.  However after discovering Sephora and this site, it’s hard to choose just one line.  I’ve made some really great purchases in recent months from several lines that I would highly recommend.

-What do you think of Makeup?? I love it!  To me, makeup is like chocolate and a glass of wine: something that every woman should have.  I believe it is intended to enhance the beauty that's already there.  In some instances, a new lipstick, foundation or blush can give us a much-needed ego boost; it’s like therapy!
