40 Getting to Know Me Questions

Wasn't sure what to blog about tonight and I love to watch these types of videos on Youtube so thought I'd do my own version on here, so here goes...


-How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice, without fail. Occasionally I will cheat and use a cleansing wipe instead but I'm pretty geeky when it comes to removing make up.

-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
I'm pretty lucky and have good skin, I don't honestly do that much. I do get a shiny t-zone throughout the day and prefer to use blotting paper as opposed to reapplying makeup.

-What is your current facial wash?
Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Cleanser and Mask. I have used this for around 5 years.
-Do you exfoliate?
Yes, around twice a week but products vary. I do love Dermalogica Microfoliant but have recently been using the Microfoliant of the same brand, which I received in the October Glossy Box.

-What brand do you use?
Haha, see above!

-What moisturiser do you use?
La Roche Posay Effaclar M Daily Mattifying Moisturiser, around £15 from Boots. I try to stock up when the 3 for 2 deals are on as each bottle contains only 30ml. I also mix in a tiny amount of Oilatum Natural Face Repair Cream (around £7 from Boots).

-Do you have freckles?

-Do you use eye cream?
Yes, the L'Oreal Collagen Micro-Vibration Eye Cream, £15 from various retailers. I wouldn't say it's amazing and I don't even use the vibrating but. I will probably look for something new when it runs out. 

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
I'm lucky that I've always had clear skin, I do get the occasional hormonal breakout but nothing too bad.

-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
Don't even know what it is


-What foundation do you use?
I don't use one, I use MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Natural. Is that a foundation?

-How about concealer?
MAC Select Cover-up, I did try the Collection 2000 one which is about 1/3 of the price but the colour range didn't suit me (I'm NC35).

-Do you know your undertone color?
They call me mellow yellow!

-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I love them but find them tricky to apply. H&M do a nice natural pair for £3.99 which I can apply but they're not glam enough.

-Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes but I don't use mine every day so I think I would waste a lot of product if I did change every 3 months, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

-What brand of mascara do you use?
At the moment I'm using Max Factor False Lash Effect, not amazing me a lot but will do for now. I have thick straight stubborn lashes, even eyelash perming didn't work on me.

-Sephora or MAC?
No Sephora where I live so definitely MAC

-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?

-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Fingers for eyeshadow, but MAC brushes for everything else.

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Yes, I have used Urban Decay Primer Potion for about 10 years, I'm using the Sin one at the moment but will return to using the original when I've used it up. I recently purchased and tried MAC Paint Pot in Indian Wood but it creased on me.

-For the face?

-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I really don't have one, I love neutrals.

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Never, ouch!

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I used to be obsessed with MAC's but they created too much and I either compressed them with MACs Mixing Medium or binned them.

-Do you use mineral makeup?
Yes, MAC's Mineralize Skin Finish.

-What is your favorite lipstick?
Revlon Super Lustrous in Mink or MAC Viva Glam Cyndi, a gorgeous pink coral.

-How about lipgloss?
I'm not a fan of lipgloss but I have just purchased Collection 2000 Cream Puff Lip Cream in Fairy Cake, it's more of a liquid lipstick but is matte and lasts quite long.

-What is your favorite blush to use?
Dior Bronzing Powder in Amber Bronze (I know it's a Bronze but I have darker skin), not sure how much because it was given to me. For a pink tone I love Boots 17 Blusher in First Flush, £3.49.

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
I did used to buy MAC pigment samples but some of them were fake so that has put me off.

-Do you like drugstore makeup?
Loveeee them!! Revlon lipsticks, Sleek and Boots 17 blushers,

-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
I have been to one in York, UK, they had a really good selection but I didn't really buy anything.

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
No, it's just a bit of fun for me.

-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I don't think so.

-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Foundation that doesn't match the skin, AAARRRRGHHHHH!!!!

-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I like colourful lips and on the eyes I will wear purple/green/blue on the lower lash smudged out but stick to neutrals everywhere else.
-Which celebrity always has great make up?
Oooooh I'm not sure, I could lie and mak one up but I won't.

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

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes, but I don't go very far.

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Apart from the dark under eye circles I don't think I look that different.

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?

Your turn!!!


  1. Oo I love reading these too. Think I might tag myself and do it :) great idea! x

  2. Great quetionnaire! How good it Mineralize Skin Finish? I have a Selridges voucher burning a whole in my pocket and thought I might break my MAC virginity! And @PennyLane Lover I really enjoyed you questionnaire too... think I'll get in on this too and rekickstart my blogging! xoxo

  3. @Blush + Blurbs

    I love the MSF Natural, I'm on my 3rd one. Definitely a good buy, doesn't provide full coverage so best for skin which is mostly clear or as a setting powder for foundation.

    You should do more blogging!!! And this is a good place to start
