30 question beauty tag

Hi everyone 

I saw the 30 question beauty tag on Kate Rose XO and loved reading it so I thought I would give it a go. Here goes.....


1. Do you remember your first makeup item?
I think it was pink lipstick (maybe Loreal) that my grandma gave me. I'm sure I asked to wear it that much that she decided she may as well give it to me.

2. Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications? 
As someone who has very sensitive eye that run in the cold, wind, rain, sun etc I would love one that does not move, no smudging, running or flaking. No I haven't found one but I am constantly looking!

3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from your foundation?
I prefer light coverage but as I'm prone to breakouts I always end up with a high coverage.

4. Favourite high end brand?
Urban decay

5. What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t? 
Elf, the delivery is so expensive even thought the products are so affordable.

7. Do you wear fake eyelashes?
No I have really sensitive eyes :)

8. Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
I do leave the house without any make up but only to walk the dog or pop to the shop. If I'm going out for longer though it would be face powder as my face is often quite shiney.

Currently my new Lush face cream Vanishing Act as I love it and don't want it to run out.
