The Beauty Tag

Hey there,

I was trying to think of something to put up today and then something popped in my lap. I was reading through the blogs I followed, when I came across the Beauty Tag that Emily from The Lady and the Blog so I decided to give it a go especially as I haven't written a tag post in a while... Let's do this!!

If you had £500, would you spend this on clothes or makeup?
At this current moment, I'd go clothes purely because I'm in the process of losing weight and most of my clothes are a little loose.

Bright nails or nude nails all year round?
Nude for me just because they aren't so obvious when they chip and my nails chip easily when I'm at work.

Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one?
 Something that doesn't clump, that makes my lashes look long, beautiful and natural. That would be the ideal.

What's your ideal coverage foundation?
Medium/full, something that covers my spots but doesn't smother my skin.

Favourite High Street/Drugstore beauty brand?
I'm going to go for Revlon. They have the Lip Butters and good foundations (which are pale enough for my skin tone).

Favourite High End beauty brand?
There isn't a brand that I have tried everything from but I want to say either MAC (obviously) or YSL.

Is there any makeup you can leave the house without wearing?
To be honest I sometimes leave the house with no make up. My skin is a lot better than it used to be so I'm a bit braver than I used to be. The one thing I always worry about is dark circles so I'd say concealer if I had to.

What is your most cherished beauty product?
I'm going to cheat a most cherished beauty product is my MAC lipstick collection. I've worked hard and spent a good deal of money making my collection and I can now say I have a lipstick for every day/every event.

Do you have a budget each month, or do you spend freely?
 I don't set myself a strict budget but I know how much I can spend and I know when I need to stop buying/

How often do you shop for goodies - online or in stores?
Most of my shopping at the moment is done online, just because I don't have the chance to go into a store and look around. I do a lot of what I like to call online window shopping, but it's only after a lot of debating and research that I make a purchase.

Do you always use the same skin routine or do you like switching it up?
 I keep the same routine which is Cleanse, Cleanse, Tone, Serum, Moisturise however sometimes I mix up what products I use for each step because I'm a skincare hoarder.

If you could only buy one makeup brand forever which would you buy? 

That's a tricky one... I'm going again with Revlon for the same reason as above...

Which brand has your favourite packaging?

YSL hands down.... Just google the Rouge Volupte Lipstick packaging and you will have to agree with me.

Which do you apply first, concealer or foundation?

Foundation first then concealer.

What skin type do you have?

My skin is combination and spot prone... it's the bane of my life but it is currently behaving itself (touch wood)

Name a makeup crime you hate. 
Super drawn on eyebrows and really brown foundation faces when you are obviously pale #embracethepale

Quick Fire Blush or Bronzer?  

Lip gloss or Lipstick? 

Foundation or Concealer? 

Brushes or Sponges? 

OPI or Essie?
 I've never tried OPI so I have to say Essie

Lotion or Body Butter? 
Body butter

Ta dah...the tag is over... I actually really enjoyed doing this tag, I suggest everyone has a go.Leave me a link to your blog if you have a go.

Lots of Love,



  1. love this tag and loved your answers, might do this tag myself :)

  2. Really enjoyed reading this post! My routine is the same, cleanse (twice), tone, serum and moisturiser. Sometimes it's a little time consuming though :( I've never tried Revlon but I asked on Twitter and people said I should try their lip butters so I think I will!
