Fun little makeup survey.

Monday, March 29

I took this from Cindy at Nail'd and Polish'd, because it looked like fun! And I'm tagging each and every one of you. :D

How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice: once in the morning and once at night.

What skin type do you have?
Combination. Well, it's just crazy. Sometimes it is insanely oily, sometimes it's insanely dry. And I have a few breakouts. Yeah, my skin sucks. I'm working on rectifying this, though.

What is your current facial wash?
Uh..It's some Physicians Complex stuff that I get from my facialist.
Do you exfoliate?
Yes, about once a week. I use Mark's Berry Grand Super Exfoliating Beads, mixed in with my own facial cleanser.
What brand do you use?
For cleanser, toner, etc., Physician's Complex. For exfoliator, Mark. For eye makeup remover, I go back and forth between Avon and Boots.
What moisturizer do you use?
I use this gel stuff by Physicians Complex, since my facialist says that a traditional moisturizer would make my skin too oily. I do use a sunscreen in the mornings, though.

Do you have freckles?
A few.
Do you use eye cream?
I don't. Not yet, anyway.
Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Ugh. Yes. I hate it.
Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
Yes. It didn't work. At all. And I followed the steps completely, and used it for quite a while.
What foundation do you use?
The Body Shop All-In-One Face Base
How about concealer?
The Body Shop's Tea Tree Blemish Stick in..01, I believe. Yes, 01.
Do you know your undertone color?
I do not.
What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I think they're pretty awesome, but I suck at putting them on.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, I did know. I try to follow that rule.
What brand of mascara do you use?
L'Oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black. Serious HG mascara right there. And I've tried out a ton of mascaras. Nothing expensive, since they're, well, expensive. But I've tried out a ton of drugstore mascaras, and this is by far my favorite.

Sephora or MAC?
I'm definitely becoming a MAC convert. I do love Sephora for non-Sephora brand things, though.
Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Concealer brush, foundation brush, blush brush, eyelash curler, brow brush thing, occasionally an eyelash comb.

Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
No, because I never wear eyeshadow, except for special occasions.
For the face?
What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
Gah, I never wear eyeshadow. I do love nice neutrals, like taupes and champagnes, though.
Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
I also never wear eyeliner, since I am not very good at putting it on. When I do wear it, I tend to go with pencil, since I seem to lack the skills needed for applying liquid eyeliner.
How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Never, since I never wear it. I've never poked myself in the eye with an eyeliner pencil, though.

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I've used them several times, and I like them very much.
Do you use mineral makeup?
I don't. I probably should.
What is your favorite lipstick?
Seriously? How am I supposed to pick just one? Hm. As far as a vampy lipstick goes, MAC Hang-Up. For a neutral, I'd have to go with Laura Mercier in Pink Champagne. For a pink, Korres Mango Butter Lipstick in Pink 14. For a red, Lipstick Queen Medieval. For a wine red, Korres Guava Lipstick in Wine Red. I'm going to stop this list right now, before I list my entire lipstick collection, haha.

How about lipgloss?
I rarely wear lipgloss, because I hate having to reapply all the time. And it's too shiny for my tastes. Despite this, I have a ton of lipgloss, haha.

What is your favorite blush to use?
I've only tried, like, three blushes. I do really like Milani Minerals blush in Luminous, though.

Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
That skeeves me out a little.

Do you like drugstore makeup?
Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
I've never been to one, but I am planning a trip to a nearby CCO for sometime in May.
Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I considered it once. I think it'd be fun.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Not really, no.
Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Foundation line.
Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick, eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
It depends, really. I prefer neutrals for everything except for the lips. I love having great color on my lips.
Which celebrity always has great make up?
Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman. They're gorgeous.
If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item, what would you use?
Oy. Just one? I suppose Dr. Feelgood, then.
Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
I have. I prefer not to, though.
Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Definitely not.
In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I haven't tried very many good makeup lines, to be quite honest. As far as drugstore makeup lines go, though, Covergirl kicks some serious butt.
What do you think of Makeup?
I adore makeup!
