30 Beauty Question Tag!

Hi sweeties <3 

Today I went in to my friend Frida's blog, and I saw she started this tag thingy and the questions seems to be a blast to answer since I am a girl who is in to the makeup/beauty world so let's go ahead and get started. ^^
Want to see Fridas answers, click HERE.


1. Do you remember your first makeup item?

Yes, I think I do. I remember buying my first real makeup item and it was an eyeshadow, it was a black eyeshadow from the brand "Face Stockholm" and it was in seventh grade. It is the best black eyeshadow I ever tried and own just because it is so pigmented, but it is expensive for a single eyeshadow as well but totally worth the money. Then also I used Yves Rocher's foundation that I got from my mom at that time, lol. 

2. Describe your perfect mascara! Have you found the one that fits your specifications? I have now 3 holy grail mascaras. First is Hypnose Drama by Lancome, but since it is so bloody expensive I used telescopic explosion mascara which I fell in love with and Miss sporty Pump up lash, that one is soo inexpensive, only 4 pounds and I LOVE that mascara, but the sad part is I cannot order it from their website or found it on ebay either, so that is a real bummer. I can only get it if I am in London and trust me, when I go there again I will buy 10 of them and believe me, I will. ;)
3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?
I prefer medium to full coverage. I don't use makeup everyday since I am a lazy ass bitch, but when I do, I go full with the makeup because I like it, honestly I don't have anything to cover because it is nothing wrong with my skin, nothing at least noticeble, but I just like that glamorous full coverage flawless look. ;)
4. Favorite high-end brand?
Makeup Forever and Makeupstore (that is what the brand is called, for real.)
5. What cosmetic brand have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?Nars, Too faced, Covergirl, bobbi brown, Chanel, benefit, Hard Candy and a lot more!
6. Favorite drugstore brand?Maybelline, NYX, Sleek, Revlon, Rimmel, L'oreal, Isadora, ELF, Wet and wild..  There is probably more, but that's the ones that pops up in my head.
7. Do you wear false lashes?
No, I barely use it. I own like 20 pairs but I never find myself reach for them because I feel comfortable using only mascara and I get massive lashes with it. On very rare occasions, I will use it. :)
8. Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?Not really, I can go out without makeup easily, BUT, I always have some sort of lipgloss with me, since I love my lipglosses. <3 
9. What is your most cherished beauty product?
Hmm, I don't know, it must be my Pump Up Lash by Miss Sporty, my HD setting powder by Makeup Forever and my Prep + prime pen by MAC. I also love my ELF studio lipgloss in Ballerina slippers, my perfect nude lipgloss. <3
10. How often do you shop for makeup? Do you like to pick up an item here and there or get lots of goodies at once?
Depends, I think honestly I get a lots of goodies at once then buy makeup from time to time on different occasions. When I shop for something, I SHOP TIL' I DROP. But if it is a mascara and I needed one badly I just swing by the store and pick it up. 
11. Do you have a ”beauty budget” or you spend freely?
I spend from 20£ to 100£ when I buy makeup, it depends really on how much I am going to buy and what brand. 
12. Do you utilize coupons, reward cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?YES! Of course I do, whenever I can! 
13. What type of product do you buy the most of?That is a tough question... I would say I switch my foundations a lot, I am in search of holy grail product when it comes to it.. Also trying to find a concealer that I feel is also my HG. So those 2 products is the ones I purchase mostly actually.
14. Is there a brand that you absolutely can’t stand?No.. But their is certain products of some brands I can't stand, not the brand itself but just some products that I've tried and really disliked. 
15. Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?
Not always no.. If I like a product I buy it except if it is animal tested, then I don't. I am really into that of not buying makeup tested on animals, so I always check the product after that little rabbit. :)
16. Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?
I mostly shop on the internet. Otherwise, HM and Kicks. If I am looking for a certain high-end brand I just go to Sephora but that is very rarely I do that.
17. Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?
I have actually a series of product that I use from Yves Rocher, I love that brand when it comes to skincare. Also Nivea face wash is absolutely stunning, love that product, it really reduces my blackheads on my T-zone. So I can recommend that product.
18. Favorite bath and body brand?Don't have any, just use some random good old bodywash in the shower that smells yummy.
19. If you could only buy from one brand, which one would you choose?
Makeup Forever if I pooped money, lol. No but seriously, love that brand. 
20. What brand to you think has the best packaging? 
Makeup Forver, Kat Von D or ELF actually. 
21. Which celebrity always has great makeup?
I think Lilly Gallachi has stunning hair and makeup 

Also I have always thought that Lana Del Rey has gorgeous makeup as well


22. Do you belong in any online makeup communities?
Yes, I am in ELF's Swedish makeup community. :)
23. 5 favorite beauty gurus?
Carli Bybel, dope2111 (Michelle Phan), gossmakeupartist (LOVE HIM!!), Beauty Broadcast Express and KlairedelysArt. There is a lot more beauty gurus that I follow daily on youtube put I had to pick just 5 favorites and it is the ones that I mentioned. 
24. Do you like multifunctional products like lip and cheek stains?No, I really don't like those at all.. I always find them to weird looking on me, so I rather get that singel product by itself that have a multi-tasking thing going on. 
25. Are you clumsy when putting on makeup?No, not really, only sometimes I can mess up mith my eyeliner or mascara but since I always take my time doing my makeup, it is very rare that it comes out looking messy. :)
26. Do you use makeup base/primer for your eyes?
Yes I do. ELF eyelid primer, the best one ever! <3
27. How many hair products do you use on a typical day?None, I only put my heat protection spray right after I washed my hair, flat-iron it then I don't use any more products than that. I can use my argan oil, I use 2 drops on the dry areas in my hair (if it tends to get dry, you know, one of those days) otherwise, no.
28. What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
Concealer then foundation. If more concealer is needed I’ll add it on top of the foundation :)
29. Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?
I want to educate myself as an professional  makeupartist and learn those techiques they use on other people. I know makeup, a lot, but I am excited to learn much more about it since there is  a lot in the beauty world that I still haven't explored yet :) 
30. What do you love about makeup?
The creativity, to create something new, play around with color, make/see changes in a way you can't imagine and just having fun doing it. Makeup is one of my biggest passions actually, so it is hard to really explain exactly what I love about it, I just do love it,  that's all. <3
