40 question tag!

HI ladies and gents! I was tagged a few weeks ago by my wonderful Malaysian friend SueLynn and I've been busy (my usual excuse) but decided to calm down with YT videos so decided to post it instead. (Major run on sentence huh?)

Anyways! here goes!

TAG - 40 Beauty Questions


-How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice - Once in the morning and once in the evening. The morning I just use my etude house acne cleanser ( I love this stuff! makes me NOT break out) and at night I use oil cleanser first to remove the makeup and the same Etude House acne cleanser.

-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
I have combination sensitive skin.

-What is your current facial wash?
It's ETUDE HOUSE AC CLINIC acne foam cleanser. If you guys can get this please do this is the only thing I use that keeps my blemishes away. I use oil cleanser at night either by DOVE, FASIO, or TISS

-Do you exfoliate?
NO..I use fruit acids tho in my toner. If I exfoliate I use Bliss exfoiliant which lasts a lifetime.
-What brand do you use?
I just answered that!

-What moisturizer do you use?
At the moment,I'm trying to use up my endless stock of moisterizers. I'm using RMK serum, Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv ultimate lifting cream( wow that sounds good huh?)and the old faithful EMBRYOLISSE.

-Do you have freckles?
Yes - I've had numerous IPL treatments and V-beam treatments it just comes back so I have come to terms with them. *sigh*

-Do you use eye cream?
Yes, like my moisterizers I'm trying to finish the stock of eyecreams I have. Currently using Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv eye cream, Good Skin Labs Eyeliplex-2. BUT!!! I have to tell you the best eye cream I've ever used was by Sisley, either that or La Prairie. I guess sometimes price does make a difference. La Mer is awesome too but I rather not sell my liver to fund my eye cream addiction.

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
I never had a major acne problem, what I have is a major freckle problem. I get the occasional breakout from either too much binge drinking and not sleeping, or hormonal.

-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
Yes, I tried my old roomate's once and it was horrendous. It was majorly strong. Stop believing in junk and save the money and see a DERMATOLOGIST, half the$ and more effective. IF you guys live in Van. the best derm is Dr. Phoebus Wong he cured my skin woes!

-What foundation do you use?
haha..I rarely use foundation now, since I use masks almost daily now ( wow the luxuries my skin is going through this whole unemployment phase) but if I do I love Giorgio Armani and Nars. I really want to try the Revlon Photoready but the lightest colour is a bit dark? ( if that's possible)

-How about concealer?
I use Skinfood's salmon's the same as Bobbi Brown's but 1/2 the price and 3 times the amount.

-Do you know your undertone color?
If it's possible I would consider myself a neutral(pink) undertone. In my early twenties I was golden but somehow I turned into casper.?

-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
The reason for living.

-Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, thank you very much. I wonder whomever made this tag ever thought they used a slight condescending tone!!! hehehe

-What brand of mascara do you use?
I like Maybelline, MJ,DEJAVU, I never use high end mascara.... because I use fake lashes almost on a daily basis.

-Sephora or MAC?
Sephora. Even thou I'm Canadian...I feel loyal to Sephora! I've been going to Sephora for over ten years and I always get that excitement when I walk in. Plus I get better deals at Sephora, and I like I can spend all day in there whereas at Mac I end up getting snotty service from an overtattoed wannabe goth punk.

-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
No. Will never get one either, since when am I skilled enuff to be a PRO at anything! ha!

-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Err? what makeup tools? I use brushes, and eyelash curlers.

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Yes and No, most times I just use my Shu Uemura cream shadow in P Brown because I find other primers are too "heavy'

-For the face?
Yes, for UV reasons. I'm finishing up my Lavshuca makeup base UV.

-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
DIOR- BEIGE MASSAI it's avail. at Sephora. (holy it's not NARS!)

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
I use gel most of the time. ETUDE HOUSE CODE B is the way to go!

-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Never, how fun is that ?poking your eye?

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I hate pigments....but!! there are some I love because the colour payoff is just amazing. Most of them are by MAC like antiqued Gold reflects or my personal fav. Crystallized Purple.

-Do you use mineral makeup?
I used to use bare minerals in fair like 6 or 7 years ago..but I found it quite heavy and cumbersome to use. I like that word. cumbersome. did I even spell it right?

-What is your favorite lipstick?
Mac Viva Glam II or Nars Belle de Jour.

-How about lipgloss?
GOSH lipjam in 102 the blue one. IM SAD im running out!

-What is your favorite blush to use?
POSIETINT by benefit (shock) Canmake PW20, or Nars DESIRE.

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
no. Im internet retarded like that.

-Do you like drugstore makeup?
I love it, esp Asian drugstore makeup, I find it sometimes far superior. PLUS NYX...who doesn't love NYX?

-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
When I lived in the US, but whenever I went (Woodbury commons all my NY'ers u know WUTS UP!!!!!) the CCO there was massive ghetto.

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
Yes I did before by Shiseido like 10 years ago, but I didn't think it helped me much except for the facial massage technique.

-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Yes...esp if I'm in a rush, but I'm never late because I am skilled in the art of TAXI MAKEUP.

-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Cakey foundation. I know a lot of girls are getting wrinkly and want to cover more skin up,but seriously... take care of your skin! I see some of my high school classmates...and they look like they are 35 y/o.! You live with your face for the rest of your life, so take care of it. Some girls rather spend money on makeup instead of skincare but if you don't have good skin, the makeup won't look good. Sounds logic right?

-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I like neutral makeup, as you age and get older, the rainbow clown makeup shouldn't reappear. Unless u are really a clown. Then power to ya!

-Which celebrity always has great make up?
AYUMI HAMASAKI, or MIKA NAKASHIMA... awesome makeup.... plus AYU is like what in her 30's she looks awesome! Maybe I should contact her plastic surgeon? Oh the girls from Girls Generation have good makeup too , and 2NE1.

-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
BLUSH.. otherwise I'd look like a sheet of kleenex.

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes all the time, and if you haven't noticed in most of my videos. I feel that unless u really need it, then use it. Think about how detrimental makeup is to the skin.... it needs time to breath!.

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I look gross, but what can I do? God gave me this face to scare ppl AHHAHA...

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
Overall I think Nars, obviously for the colour selection. I also have to give shoutouts to RMK the most underrated makeup line ever. Awesome colours, works with everything, amazing pigmentation, and good quality. I also think LUNASOL has good eyeshadows.

-What do you think of Makeup?
A neccessity.
