The Makeup Addict Tag

Makeup Addict Title Picture

I was tagged by the lovely @thahirahsthoughts over on Instagram a good few weeks ago, and I'm so excited to finally get this done because it is quite possibly the most exciting tag for me! :) I'll be tagging some other fabulous makeup lovers too, so read on and enjoy...!

1. Which product do you still keep buying more of despite having plenty in your collection?

I very nearly said lipsticks but that would be such a lie. I'm completely and utterly obsessed with blushers. I don't even know why but I love everything about blushers. I love how they look in the pan, I love that they can take any size and shape, I love how they change my face from dull to bright instantaneously. Everything!!!

2. What's the one product you can't live without?

Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm and Hand & Nail Cream

I know this is the makeup tag but in all honesty I could live without makeup if I had to. I wouldn't like to but I could. A life without hand cream and lip balm however would be completely torturous!!! I hate that feeling you get when your hands are dry or when you keep licking your lips for that futile relief. 

3. Favourite makeup brand?

High street: I love so many high street/drugstore brands and really struggled to choose only one. Right now though, it has to be KIKO. They have an amazing selection of products at an affordable price point. (Bourjois, Maybelline and Soap & Glory are not far behind though)!

High end: Since purchasing the Virtual Domination Blush Palette last December, I have fallen head over heels for NARS Blushes (and we all know how important blushers are in my life!) and have found myself building up rather a lovely little collection and although I am yet to try their foundations, I know they will be great! NARS is definitely my favourite high end brand of right now!

4. How big is your makeup collection?

I feel like this is quite a difficult question. Personally I feel like my collection is smaller than what I deemed it to be. Having said that, I don't deny that its a rather large collection really. I guess what I mean is that I am happy with it. But since I'm a makeup junkie, it will never seem that big to me ever. Even if it is. Hahaha!

5. How do you store it?

A couple of days ago I sorted out all of my makeup into categories and they now live with their respective peers in perfume boxes & lids in my chest of drawers.

6. How many items of makeup have you got in your handbag at the moment?

handbag containing beauty products including mac twig lipstick and soap and glory one heck of a blot powder

I don't actually carry much makeup with me. Lip balm and hand cream are a complete necessity whilst everything else is additional luxury for me. Currently though I've been keeping MAC Twig with me and Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot Pressed Powder just in case of any sprucing up emergencies.

7. If you could raid another blogger's stash, who would it be?

Sali Hughes! She has the best skincare, makeup, body care, hair care & tools in her arsenal & I would not mind having a proper rummage. LOL!

8. How long does your usual makeup routine take and how many products do you use?

I have learnt to do my entire makeup routine very quickly given that I am usually getting ready after getting everyone else in the house ready with only a few minutes to spare. I reckon I do my whole face in about 10 minutes comfortably (no fancy eyeshadow sequence) with about 8 products minimum. Is that a lot???

9. Have you ever bought makeup knowing you won't use it?

No, I don't think so. Though there have obviously been plenty of times I bought things in colours that are wrong for me or not to my taste, but again, not knowingly. I don't believe in having makeup that I can't use.

:) I tag these lovelies:
And of course anyone else who would like to do it! Let me know if you do because I would love to read it!

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did. Please feel free to leave me a comment, tweet me or come say hi on my Instagram xxx
