40 Beauty Questions Tag

Hey there,

So recently when I was mooching throughout all the blogs that I follow and read, I found a tag post which I have now seen on a few people's blogs. It is called the 40 Beauty Questions Tag and it does what it says on the tin.

As I haven't done a tag post for a while, I thought I'd have a go.

sourced from A Yellow Brick Blog
1.How many times do you wash your face?
Everyday I try to wash my face twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. However I do have to say that some mornings I can be a little lazy and not wash my face and just quickly cleanse instead.

2.What skin type do you have? (combination, dry, oily).
I am a combination skinned girl.
3.What is your current facial wash?
My current cleanser is Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, I don't have a face wash as such.
4.Do you exfoliate?
Probably not as much as I should. I am more likely to exfoliate through using an exfoliating toner than through an actual exfoliater as I haven't found one that I actually like.
5.What moisturiser do you use?
Currently my daytime moisturiser is Origins Ginzing but I'm very close to finishing it off and I don't know when I will have chance to go into a store and repurchase it.
6.Do you have freckles?
I have a few freckles on my face.

7.Do you use eye cream?
I try to but I haven't found one I can't live without yet.

8.Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
If you have ever watched my videos, I am spot prone on my chin. It sucks but it's alright I'll live

9.Did you ever have to use Pro-activ? 
I had no idea what this was so I googled it. I believe this is an American Skincare brand for the spot prone but I have no knowledge of it.

10.What foundation do you use?
I have a rather large foundation collection so it depends on how I'm feeling that day. I do like Bourjois Healthy Mix, NARS Sheer Glow and YSL Le Teinte Touche Eclat.

11.How about concealer?
Again I have a few concealers but I do like NARS Creamy Concealer and Collection Lasting Perfection.
12.Do you know your undertone colour?
I have a warm undertone, I am an NW in MAC or a BR in YSL.UPDATE... I have been told I'm cool as NW stands for NOT WARM... Who knew?
13.What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I think they look good on the right people, I can't deal with them though as I hate getting too close to my eyes and the thought of putting glue near them sets me in shivers.
14.Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
I did thank you for asking haha.
15.What brand of mascara do you use?
I have three that I like... Benefit They're Real, Maybelline The Rocket and Lancome Hypnose Star.
16.Sephora or MAC?
Never been in a Sephora and we all know my obsession with MAC so I have to say MAC for this one.
17.Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
I don't... I wish I did.
18.What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
I use a brush for nearly everything... Foundation,Concealer, Eyeshadow, Powder, Blusher all applied with a brush. In fact the only thing I don't use a brush for is Lipstick.

20.Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
I use my MAC paint pot in Bare Study as a base for most eye looks.
21.For the face?
I never use a face primer, I've never seen any difference.
22.What is your favourite eyeshadow (colour or shade)? 
My favourite eyeshadow of the moment is MAC Naked Lunch. It's a simple champagne nude colour that is perfect.

23.Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Out of those two..Pencil but I am currently prefering eyeshadow liner.

24. How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Never I don't think many people do... but dear gosh this would be my worst nightmare.

25.What do you think of pigment eyeshadows? 
I haven't really tried them...

26.Do you use mineral makeup? 
I have a mineral foundation but it isn't a greatly used product.

27.What is your favourite lipstick?
I have many favourites, I can't pick one.. I know it's a cop out BUT you have all seen or heard about my lipstick collection, there's a lot to choose from.

28.How about lipgloss?
Not such a great fan of lipgloss but Nyx Beige is a lovely one.
29. What is your favorite blush to use?
I have to say I truly love NARS Deep Throat.

30.Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
Gosh no, who knows what you are paying for!!

31.Do you like drugstore makeup?
I do, despite my big step into more expensive brands I still find that the drugstore (or high street) still does somethings better than anywhere else.

32.Do you go to CCO’s? (cosmetic company outlets)
I'd like to but I haven't been to one. Someone please take me!!

33. Did you ever consider taking make-up classes? 
Probably not as I kind of enjoy learning techniques through YouTube etc. However there is part of me that would love to learn how to do other people's make up as I think it would be a fun thing to do for friends etc.

34.Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I wouldn't say clumsy but when it comes to eyeliner there are times when it looks terrible and uneven.

35.Name a makeup crime that you hate!
Girls who wear the wrong shade of foundation (orange face) but also girls who put far too much make up on and ruin their natural beauty.
36. Do you like colourful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones? 
I like my colourful shades but I know there are times and places for them.

37.If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use? 
Concealer.. it can hide a multitude of sins.
38. Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes I do... every week I try to have at least one make up free day and if I have plans to go out somewhere on the no make up days I will do.
39. Do you think you look good even without any makeup on? 
I have to say yes... Make up is wonderful but it can only highlight what's already there. If you don't love your face without make up, smothering it in every product you own isn't going to make you love it anymore.

40.What do you think of Make up? I think Make Up is brilliant. If I didn't I doubt I would have a two blogs and a YouTube Channel where I can talk about them.

So there you are...40 questions answered... I know there are a few versions of the questions floating around so if these aren't the same as anyone elses that is probably why. If you have a go at these questions feel free to let me know in the comments and I'll check you out.

Lots of Love,


  1. Loved this :) I think you have cool undertones though, like me. Warm undertones is more med or tanned xx

    1. Laura is right, NW means (not warm ie cool) and BR in YSL contains pink undertones usually perfect for cool toned girls-I have the same skin tone :)

  2. Hi Clare, fab Tag! Loving your approach to bare faced beauty. Would love to hear more about how you feel about your skin and other peoples reaction when you go make-up free. Do you feel more or less confident (or just yourself!).
