Crack out the cake

I realised earlier this week that it is the 2nd Anniversary of me starting my little bloggie (15/04/10) oh how time has flown by.  It's only until recent that I have felt that my blog has become a success... well in my eyes any how.  I may not have a high amount of followers after 2 years, but it isn't about the numbers for me.

So I thought I'd revisit the past and show you an updated 40 Beauty Questions TAG.  Way back in April 2010 that was my very first post.  I wonder if much has changed?  You can read the first version here. If you wish to do the tag please do and let me know if you do. . .I love a good read.


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

-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
Still have my oily-combo skin, I normally get a oily T-zone.  On the rare occasion I can be a little dry depending on the weather.

-What is your current facial wash?
My beloved Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (which I have run out of)

-Do you exfoliate?

-What brand do you use?
Clean and Clear Daily Pore Cleanser or Superdrug Deep Action Daily Exfoliating Wash

-What moisturizer do you use?
Anything!  A bit of Liz Earle or Garnier Nutritionist

-Do you have freckles?
I said no last time but I have a few i think on my nose, faint ones.

-Do you use eye cream?
I've just started using Origins but I am a supporter of the Bobbi Brown's Extra Repair and Hydrating Eye Creams

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Not acne but I am prone to spots

-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?


-What foundation do you use?
Make Up For Ever HD is my ultimate favourite but you can't get it in the UK. Grrr!

-How about concealer?
Bobbi Brown Coverup Stick for spots and MAC Select Coverup for my dark circles

-Do you know your undertone colour?
I think I'm pink???? Not sure LOL.

-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
Like them but way too much effort for me.

-Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, but I don't.  I change it between 4-6 months or when it's bone dry.

-What brand of mascara do you use?
Holy grail Maybelline One by One Volum' Express.  Love it!

-Sephora or MAC?
If we had Sephora in the UK I'd be there all the time.  So many brands to choose from.

-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
Still haven't got one.

-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Fingers and brushes, not sponges.

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
MAC Paint Pots.

-For the face?
Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base

-What is your favourite eyeshadow (colour or shade)?
I like neutrals,  browns and greys.  See my MAC favourites here.

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Every day I use a pencil but I do like gels also.

-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
I've got better at using it so not too often now.

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
Fun but messy.  My favourite is Naked by MAC.

-Do you use mineral makeup?
I've tried Bare Minerals but I find it drying on my skin so steer clear.

-What is your favourite lipstick?
Chanel's Boy, MAC's Plink, Cream Cup, Sweetie or Hue

-How about lipgloss?
I like Bobbi Browns Raspberry.

-What is your favourite blush to use?
Rimmel London - Summer's my favourite ever.

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
Used to but haven't in years.

-Do you like drugstore makeup?
Daft yeah of course.

-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
American CCO's sound amazing but I have been to the CCO in Bicester Village and I wasn't that impressed.  Would love to go to a US one.

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I've done two Groupon makeup classes, but I knew most things they spoke about.  I wish I had gone down that creative path as I enjoy makeup so much now.  It's a case of I wish I knew then, what I know now.

-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
No, I think I'm good at it.  I'm not bigging myself up there honest!

-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Not a makeup crime more a self tanning crime, why do people like to be orange???

-Do you like colourful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
Both. I like neutral eye colours but a nice colour on the lips or cheek.  Nothing too OTT though.

-Which celebrity always has great make up?
I still love Lauren Conrad as before but I like people like Kelly Brooke, Cat Deeley, Kate Middleton - who just look classic but not over done.  Less is more.

-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item, what would you use?
Lip Balm or Tinted Moisturiser

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
I do leave without, who cares I say!

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Depending on how good my skin is at that time, yes I can do.

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
Make Up For Ever, Rimmel, MAC, Collection 2000, Bobbi Brown shall I go on...?

-What do you think of Makeup?
I think makeup is fun and it can show peoples creativity.  I love it!!!
