The Beauty Tag

I have never done a beauty tag before and to be honest I wasn't sure what one was until the beautiful
Zoe Cockell tagged us in one. You can read her beauty tag and blog by clicking the link here.

So here goes...

1) If you could have anyone in the world do you makeup who would it be? 

At the moment it would be Dita Von Tease. I purchased her book entitled 'Your Beauty Mark'  a few months back and since then I'm in awe of her commitment to beauty. She often does her own makeup for events so I would love her to work her eclectic glamour on me. 

2) What's your top beauty tip 

Always moisturise before applying your foundation. Not only does it provide a great make up base but it hydrates and plumps up the skin helping give a flawless finish. If you find that your face cream leaves the skin too greasy then you may be using the wrong one for your skin type.  

3) What's one skin care item you couldn't live without

At the moment I would have to say Declor iris night balm. I suffer with hay fever which means I'm always blowing my nose so the skin around that area is often dry. The iris night balm is oil based so instantly hydrates and soothes the area. Its designed to drip feed into the skin so by morning any signs of dryness have gone. Keeping the skin hydrated helps to minimize the appearance of fine line. I also use it a lip balm 

4. What are you worst at when it comes to make up.

Like most people I'd have to say the winged liquid eye liner. I'll get one eye perfect then the other is a nightmare to match up. I go from one eye to the other and before you know it I look like I've been attacked with a permanent marker. I'm much better with a Kohl pencil so I tend to do that first as guide and put the liquid on top for a bold finish. 

5. What's the biggest pet peeve when it comes to make up?

Probably the above. I also hate seeing mascara on the eyelid. When I'm not wearing lash extensions I too sometimes get mascara on the eye lid, especially when I'm getting right into the lash line but I always make sure I have a cotton but handy to clean up the area. 

6. What's your favourite make up era?

I love vintage glamour and my favourite would be the 1920's. Think 'Great Gatsby' with a dark eye, reddish brown lip with the Cupid's bow accentuated. Being from a hairdressing background I also love the finger waved hair.

7. What is your 'guilty pleasure' product?

Soleil Tan De Chanel. It's a cream based bronzer that gives a beautiful matt finish and is easy to blend. I use this all year round to give me a healthy glow.

8. What is your 'underdog' product?

I've spent so much on mascara's over the years and find they never quite deliver on what they claim to do. My underdog product is not really a product so maybe classed as cheating but it has to be the lash lift. I swear that if you have this done you can wear any mascara and your lashes will look amazing. The lash lift is basically perming your lashes so that they lift up from the root. This is obviously not something you can do yourself but is offered by lots of salons. It lasts 4 to 6 weeks and makes mascara application much quicker. 

9. What is your favourite product of 2015? 

Mac 'eye brow' pencil in colour spiked. It's brilliant at getting brush stroke hairs and so precise when creating a defined eyebrow shape. The only downside is that I find it doesn't last long but I can't find any copy cat product that comes close to this.

Hope you enjoyed my first beauty tag.
