Getting To Know Me Tag


I was reading the beautiful Rachel's blog "Racheltbeauty" and noticed she had done this Tag and I really enjoyed reading it so I decided to do it myself. I love Tags as you get to know the girl behind the blog. This one is nice as it gives you an insight into what skincare and make up everyone likes. If you would like to do this tag please leave me your link below as I would love to read it.

How many times do you wash your face daily?  
In the morning I wipe my face with Lush's Rose Water and I do a deep cleanse in the evening. 

What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo) 

Super dry. 

What is your current facial wash? 

It’s more of a cream but it is Lush's Ultra Bland.

Do you exfoliate? 

Yes I use my Clarasonic every evening.

What brand do you use? 
My skincare consists mostly Lush products as I find them gentle on my sensitive skin.

What moisturiser do you use? 
Oilatum Natural Repair.

Do you have freckles? 

Yes and I hate them.

Do you use eye cream? 

No but I definitely need to start!

Do you or did you have acne prone skin? 

Not really but I definitely had some spots.

Did you ever have to use Proactiv? 



What foundation do you use? 

I am currently using Nars Sheer Glow but I have loads of favourites and it also changes depending on how my skin is behaving.

How about concealer? 

I don't really use concealer but on occasion I use Collection 2000 and Mac studio sculpt in Nw20.

Do you know your undertone colour? 


What do you think of fake eyelashes? 

I love them but I never wear them because I am always wearing my glasses.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months? 

Yes I was aware of this but I honestly don't really abide by it. I wear mascara nearly every day so when it dries up I usually stop wearing it.

What brand of mascara do you use?  

I am currently using a little tester of Sublime De Chanel which I am loving! My favourite mascara is Ysl Faux Cils
 but I am usually trying out drugstore mascaras.

Sephora or MAC? 

We don't have a Sephora in Ireland so I have to say Mac.

Do you have a MAC Pro Card?

Yes but it has to be renewed. 

What makeup tools do you use in make-up application? 

Mac and Sigma brushes. I use to have a beauty blender and loved it but my puppy ate it, the brat!

Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes? 

Not regularly but if I am going out I will apply Urban Decay eye shadow primer. 

For the face?  

I use the L'oreal studio secrets primer but only for nights out. I don't wear it everyday I tend to forget about it.

What is your favorite eyeshadow? 

I think I would have to say Mac but I also love Inglot and Urban Decay.

Do you use pencil or liquid eye-liner?


How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?

Thankfully not that often but isn't it a killer when you do and then your eyes water and you end up ruining your make up!

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows? 

I think they are beautiful but can be very messy!

Do you use mineral makeup? 

No I find my skin too dry to use it.

What is your favorite lipstick?

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy.

How about lipgloss? 

Dior Addict Lip Glow Colour Reviver Balm.

What is your favourite blush to use? 

I bought a Smashbox blush in last year and for some reason it is the only blush I seem to reach for daily.

Do you buy your makeup on ebay? 

No I haven't yet. I would be worried it might be a fake.

Do you like drugstore makeup? 


Did you ever consider taking makeup classes? 

Yes I am a trained beauty therapist but decide to go back to college and study accounting.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup? 

No I don't think so but I do hate when I manage to get a speck of foundation on my clothes!

Name a makeup crime that you hate? 
I hate when girls wear a dark lipliner and nude lips!

Do you like colourful shades of makeup or neutral ones? 

I am a neutral girl.

Which celebrity always has great make up?
Kim Kardashian's make up always looks amazing.

If you could leave the house using just one make up item what would you use? 


Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on? 

Yes I could but I would rather not.

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on? 

No I don't think so!

In your opinion, what is the best makeup line? 

I don't think there is just one fantastic line I think each brand have strengths in different areas

What do you think of Makeup? 

I adore make up if I could play with it every day I would. I also love doing my friends make up when they are going out and to see the confidence they gain from it is lovely.
