30 Beauty Questions Tag

I've been getting even more and more into makeup and beauty recently, and I came across this tag while reading a beauty blog, which I found really interesting and I wanted to answer some of the questions! I'm going to tag my friends Chelsea and Karina to do this as well. Read on to find out more about me and my makeup preferences..!

Do you remember your first makeup item?

A super colourful eyeshadow palette that I got for free from a magazine.. and I never touched it LOL. But the first makeup item that I got and actually used was the How To Look The Best At Everything set by Benefit!

Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?

One that not only lengthens my lashes but also keeps a curl for the entire day, since I have straight ass Asian lashes. I've found that most Japanese mascaras do just that, but my favourites are the Kiss Me Heroine Long and Curl mascara and the Dolly Wink Koji Volume mascara (surprisingly, I like it more than the long formula). The Etude House Lash Perm Curl Fix Mascara comes close as well!

What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?

Medium coverage. I don't really mind whether it has a matte or dewy finish because I always set my base makeup with powder anyway (#oilyskinproblems).

Favourite high end brand?

Don't have one, but the closest one would probably be Laneige for me (though it seems like it's more mid-range than high end).

What cosmetics brands have you always wanted to try but still haven't?

Pony Effect! I've been dying to try their Blur Powder and their liquid lipsticks but I can't justify the price right now..

Favorite drugstore brand?

Revlon. Their lip products are seriously out of this world.

Do you wear fake eyelashes?

No, I've only worn them once or twice for special occasions but I really love how they look on me!

Is there any kind of makeup you can't leave the house without?

BASE MAKEUP. I always have to have BB cream on at the very least, or else I look really dead and sullen :(

What is your most cherished beauty product?

It changes all the time, but right now I'd have to say my Laneige Pure Radiant Shadow quad in Rosebay Garden (which I did a review on here!). It's my very first Laneige product and I've been using it faithfully ever since it was gifted to me.

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?

I very rarely go on "shopping sprees" when it comes to makeup (except when I'm in Korea HAHAHA) and I like to read a ton of reviews on a product before I make the decision to buy it so I definitely only pick up beauty products once in a while.

Do you have a "beauty budget" or do you spend freely?

Like I said before, I do a lot of careful research before buying makeup (because I feel quite guilty and scared of buying makeup that I might not like and won't use) so I don't have a budget per say but I definitely try not to go all out at once. The only exception to this is when I'm shopping for makeup in Korea.. do you see a trend with my answers here? :')

Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?

Hell yeah, buy 1 get 1 free is my shit! My Etude membership gets a ton of usage when I'm in Korea.

Is there a brand that you absolutely can't stand?

I don't hate any brands but I'm not a fan of Benefit anymore (nothing wrong with their products, but I find their packaging to be extremely tacky..) and I'm not interested in buying anything from Lime Crime or Jeffree Star, ever.

Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics like parabens or sulfates?

..no.. but I probably should....

Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup?

Does Korea in general count? :D Korean roadshop brands for sure, as well as the cheap makeup store in Edae (I'll blog about that once I'm back in August!) and Sephora as well.

Do you like trying new skincare products or do you keep a certain routine?

I rarely ever buy new skincare products because I basically have a lifetime supply of skincare thanks to all my samples. My skin is not that sensitive so I'm always trying new things!

Favorite bath and body brand?

I don't have one :(

What brand do you think has the best packaging?

3CE definitely has the most chic and classy looking packaging in my eyes, but I also have a soft spot for Skinfood's packaging!

Which celebrity always has great makeup?

Kylie Jenner for sure.

5 favourite beauty gurus?

As of right now, Sunny, Hanbyul, Bella, Soyoung and Kelle Lower! Here are some of my favourite makeup videos from them:

Do you like multifunctional products like lip and cheek stains?

Not really. I do own one lip and cheek product (the Etude House Sweet Cupcake All Over Color) but I don't use it much because I hate dipping my finger into the product :(

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?

Definitely! I do put on makeup every day but I'm hardly a pro at it.

Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?

Yes. My eye makeup will melt off if I don't..

How many hair products do you use on a typical day?

Just shampoo, conditioner and Moroccan argan oil. I spray heat protectant onto my hair before blow drying it sometimes but I've been slacking on that a lot recently.

What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?

Concealer first!

Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?

YES. I'd love to do so in the future!

What do you love about makeup?

There's a lot of things that I love about it, but I think I mostly like the fact that it's a form of art itself. I'm quite shitty at drawing and stuff and my creativity levels are basically nonexistent but through makeup, I'm able to express myself and experiment with different looks. It's also super therapeutic sitting in front of my mirror doing my makeup every day :)
