40 Beauty Questions

How many times do you wash your face daily?


What skin type do you have?
I just found out that I have combination-sensitive skin. Which means easily irritated skin that is oily in some areas and dry in some.

What is your current facial wash?
I am LOVING Elizabeths Daugher's Facial Gel Cleanser and Liz Earls Cleanse & Polish.

Do you exfoliate?
Almost every other day. Careful though, excessive exfoliation can lead to thinning of the skin.

What brand do you use?
I exfoliate using Liz Earl's Exfoliator or Purity Deep pore cleanser.

What moisturizer do you use?
Loreal's Age Perfect day cream. It's a lovely whipped buttery consistency and you only need a tiny bit. Leaves skin hydrated and not oily!

Do you have freckles?
I have hardly seen Indians with freckles?! :p

Do you use eye cream?
Nivea Anti Shadow eye cream. Immediately absorbs into skin.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
I would not call it acne but I have skin prone to spots/blemishes. Not so lucky eh.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
I have no idea what the hype is all about!

What foundation do you use?
Currently I am obsessed about Boots No 7 Stay Perfect Foundation. Flattering shades for all skintones and photographs great, what more can you ask for :)

How about concealer?
Its a mix between Bobbi Browns Corrector in Peach and Barbara Daly(Tesco) concealer in warm.

Do you know your undertone color?
I am an NC for Mac and a Neutral Beige in other brands.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?

I am terrible at applying them at present, need more practice and Duo adhesive.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes but I use my common sense and change it whenever clumpy.

What brand of mascara do you use?

Maybelline and Rimmel are usually amazing with Mascaras.

Sephora or MAC?
We don't have a Sephora in the UK so Mac.

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
Not yet but would love to possess one in the future.

What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Brushes and fingers all the way.

Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
There is no point applying eye shadows without these so yes! I have always used UDPP but may deviate to Too faced eyeshadow insurance.

For the face?
Moisturizers are great face primers in my opinion.

What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I dote on Mac's Texture eyeshadow - its my all time favorite!

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
I in fact adore gel liners as they are great to control. I prefer brown liner pencils for a subtle everyday look.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Hehe, never actually.

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?

They look pretty but are a mess to apply. I would rather use them pressed.

Do you use mineral makeup?
I used to live on mineral makeup before but am not a big fan of it now. Got over it I guess.

What is your favorite lipstick?

It has to be Mac Jubilee any day. You have to try it out guys!

How about lipgloss?
I admire Victoria Jackson's Lipglosses in every color available.

What is your favorite blush to use?
Lancome's Blush Subtil in Miel Glace and Mac's Eversun.

Do you buy your makeup on ebay?

Only Ebay! I am an ebay addict and happy about that :)

Do you like drugstore makeup?
I am not fond of drugstore eye shadows(Sleek is an exception!) or blushes as I feel they lack a flattering range of colors. But I am a fan of drugstore foundations for sure.

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

I only know of one in Bicester which I am planning to raid it in the summer sale to come.

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?

I learn from You Tube for free so how is that any different? But I would love to in the future if time permits.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I take my time and always start beforehand.

Name a makeup crime that you hate?

I cant stand people wearing 'fairer' looking foundations. I never understood the concept of 'fairer is better'. In fact you can get away with wearing darker foundations but never a shade fairer.

Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick, eyeshadow) or neutral ones?

I love a fusion of neutral and bright colors. Try and blend a brighter eyeshadow with a neutral one or add a pop of any bright eyeshadow on your lower lashline. A mix of colors from these families will look modern.

Which celebrity always has great make up?
Kim Kardashian's makeup is anyone's dream! I love Jennifer Lopez's makeup at times. As for Bollywood, I absolutely adore Kareena Kapoor and Bipasha Basu for their makeup sense.

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

A foundation would be my must have. You can also double it as a concealer. Don't we all just love multitasking products?

Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?

I usually am bare faced when am at home and whilst traveling.

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I look pretty much the same I guess. Besides the fact that I look jaundiced lol. Makeup adds color to my face.

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?

Different brands have their own strengths. I would choose Bobbi Brown for Foundations, Mac for Eye shadows and Nars for Blushes.

What do you think of Makeup?
As my tag line goes, Make-up should be used to enhance your beautiful self :) If you are beautiful from the inside it will evidently be seen on the outside, without a doubt.

I would love to see this tag by Cynthia, Divija, Sonali, Mevish, Zara, Innerbelle, Leanne (Do Not Refreeze), Jo (Beautilicious Love), LipstickRules, Makeup Before Coffee, Vex in the City, The Gloss Goss, I Heart Cosmetics, Tastes Like Glitter, Oxford Jasmine and all of you guys who would want to do it.
