Since I’m technically on vacation this week, I decided a tag might be fun! This tag is from Youtube Society and you can get the tag to do it yourself right here! This is a tag all about beauty blogging, which seems appropriate for me. What a lot of my new readers may not know: this is not my first beauty blog. I used to have a different one years ago before it was super trendy. I ended up quitting the blog shortly before I got pregnant with my son because – if you can believe it – I was getting a bit overwhelmed with the PR samples and expectations they came with. I know, talk about first world problems. But that is what is great about this world. I’m able to come back and start anew. And I want to thank you for joining me!
1. What is the one product you could not go without?
Foundation! I am not a huge fan of my skin at the moment. This year has really been the year of skincare for me, so I am getting more comfortable in my own skin, but I really love a good medium coverage foundation to just help out on the days I feel like I need it most.
2. Favourite Make Up Brand
Oooo, that’s a really hard one. There are so many amazing brands out there, especially nowadays. Can I pick a favorite drugstore and highend? My favorite drugstore would be Revlon. Their lip products are amazing, and they have a lot of really nice face products as well. As far as highend, I think I’d have to pick NARS. Their products are just so sleek and I always very impressed with the quality.
3. Who is your style inspiration
I don’t really know if I have a style inspiration. I pretty much rock a t-shirt and jeans/shorts most days, so you can pretty much pick anyone who’s style revolves around that.
4. Do you remember the first make up item you purchased?
I don’t. It was probably a Covergirl mascara (still a fave of mine, they make the best drugstore mascaras). My first high-end purchase was the Urban Decay Sustainable Palette. My mom freaked out over the cost of it, but Urban Decay is my baby brand.
5.Who is your favorite beauty blogger or YouTuber
Another toughie. My favorite Youtuber is probably Mesijesibeauty. I love her style and her personality. Plus, her makeup is always on point!
6. What are your top 5 makeup brands?
NARS. Urban Decay. Revlon. Too Faced. Anastasia Beverly Hills.
7. What is your top beauty tip?
Use that color! So many people are afraid of bright colors, but there are so many subtle ways to wear them that look incredible! Life is too short to live in neutral.
8. Why did you start blogging?
Originally (many years ago), I started blogging because I loved makeup and none of my friends really got my obsession, so I was on the hunt for people who understood. This time around, my reasoning is pretty much the same. Plus, as a SAHM you HAVE to have your own hobby. Or you will go insane.
9. Random Fact About Yourself?
I drink mountain dew like no other.
10. How much do you spend on beauty products every month?
Do we really need to go there? I feel like it’s so much more fun when we don’t have to put numbers on things. Ummm, let’s just say: way too much. It’s really not healthy.
11. Describe your dream make up haul
A Sephora store.
12. How often do you wash your make up brushes?
I wash my brushes about once a week, give or take a couple of days. I never go more than a week and a half or so in between washes.
13. If you could only choose to do one before leaving the house, would you do your hair or your makeup?
Makeup. Definitely. I would look a bit weird without my hair done, but I can live with that.
14. 5 Beauty Products you couldn’t live without
Foundation, lipstick, toner, masks, and eyeliner.
15. What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out?
Have fun with it. It’s so not a competition. Just let your personality come through.
