I love quizzes and questionnaires. They’re fun and challenging exercises that enable you to learn more about others… and yourself. I found this beauty questionnaire on Sephora’s website and modified it a bit- hope you’ll play along, too!
What skin type do you have? Combination, though lean towards the oily spectrum.
How many times do you wash your face daily? Two- morning & night.
What’s your current facial wash? I regularly switch washes, but my current favorite is St. Ives Even & Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin scrub.
Do you exfoliate? Absolutely.
What brand do you use? St. Ives Apricot exfoliating wash. I’ve used it since high school. No reason to change.
What moisturizer do you use? Again, this changes. I’m using Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizing and Brightening Cream and St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin.
Do you have freckles? I have several very pronounced freckles on my face and lots on my back. I’m a recovering tanaholic.
Do you use eye cream? Duh. I currently use Kiehl’s Avocado Creamy Under Eye Treatment and First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 Eye Cream. You should use something, too!
Do you have acne prone skin? I have hormone-induced breakouts, but otherwise no. I’m lucky.
Have you ever used Proactive? I’ve tried it, but never used it regularly.
What foundation do you use? I change this up a bit, but I’m currently using Revlon Color Stay Whipped Creme from my Diva Swap box.
How about concealer? I use Maybelline under-eye concealer and Dermablend (find in Ulta) for everything else. It’s the best. I’m certain it could cover a head wound.
What do you think of false eyelashes? They’re so glamorous- wish I had more appropriate reasons to wear them!
Do you change your mascara every three months as recommended? Yep! If not sooner.
What brand of mascara do you use? I currently use Maybelline The Falsies, among others.
What makeup tools do you use during makeup application? An array of brushes (eye shadow/brow, blush, powder, contouring sponge) and an eyelash curler.
Do you use makeup base/primer for eyes? I’m currently using Stila HD Beauty Balm and applying it over my entire face, including eyes.
What is your favorite eye shadow shade? I love neutrals and usually wear shimmery grays and browns.
Do you use liquid or pencil eyeliner? Liquid! I find it’s much easier to apply.
Do you use mineral makeup? I use Tarte mineral and wore BareMinerals foundation for years.
What is your favorite lipstick? YSL, Maybelline, Laqa & Co., and Stila.
MAKE ME CHOOSE
Do you buy your makeup on Ebay? No.
Do you like drugstore makeup? Hell yeah! You can find amazing products in drugstores.
Have you ever considered taking makeup classes? I haven’t, but think it’d be a blast! I’m a self-taught makeup fanatic.
Are you clumsy when putting on makeup? Not really, but would be if I put it on others.
Name a makeup crime that you hate. Noticeable lip liner and dark or drawn-on brows. Let them grow!
Do you like colorful shades of makeup? I love bright lip colors, though I don’t wear bright eye colors. I think some people pull them off flawlessly.
Which celebrity always has great makeup? Gwen Stefani is my makeup spirit guide. I think Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Rashida Jones, and Kate Winslet perpetually look gorgeous as well.
If you could leave the house using just ONE makeup item, what would it be? Mascara. My lashes are blonde. It’s like my whole face disappears.
Could you leave the house without any makeup? I do occasionally. I’m from the south- it’s not good manners to appear in public without your face. I’m comfortable in my own skin… but a pair of over-sized sunglasses can be your best friend.
Do you think you look good without makeup on? You bet! I think I look younger. Embrace your face, ladies.
What do you think of makeup? It should be obvious that I’m obsessed with all-things makeup. It helps me feel glamorous, feminine, and creative.
Now it’s your turn! I’m curious to see your answers!
