Today I have a small but fun tag for you guys! There’s only nine questions and I tried to give short answers, but that turned out to be too much of a challenge for me haha! I don’t know who came up with this tag, but I believe it’s been around for a while. By the way, I tag all of you guys to do this tag too. Don’t forget to tell me if you do, so I can read your answers! :)
What products do you keep buying more of despite having plenty of in your collection?
Definitely lip products! There’s so many colours I don’t have yet! ..Or well, that’s what I tell myself. ;)
What’s the one product you can’t live without?
”Can’t live without” is a bit of an exaggeration of course, but if I had to choose something it’d probably be mascara. It just makes you look a little bit more fresh and awake.
Favourite high end brand?
I don’t own a lot of high end makeup, but of course there are high end brands of which I’d like to try more products! I think Kat Von D is at the top of my list.
How big is your makeup collection?
Not very big. I’ve only really been into beauty for a couple of years now, so my ”stash” is probably a lot smaller than that of someone who’s been into beauty for five or ten years. Plus, I try to not spend crazy amounts of money on beauty products.. With the emphasis on ”try” haha.
How do you store your makeup?
Pretty much my whole ”collection” still fits in the left drawer of my desk. I put a cutlery tray from Ikea in it to seperate everything nicely. The only thing I store seperately are my bullet lipsticks. I keep those in my Ikea Alex drawers (yes, I have them too haha) in a lipstick holder I got from eBay.
How many makeup items do you have in your bag at the moment?
Only two, surprisingly! I often throw the lipstick I’m wearing that day in my bag, so the lipsticks kind of tend to pile up in there. But right now the only two in my bag are the Essence Velvet Matt lipstick in ”24” and the 3CE lipstick in ”Fatal”.
If you could raid another blogger’s stash, who would it be?
Most beauty bloggers I follow haven’t really done a makeup collection series, so I don’t really know how extensive their collection is. So for this answer I’m choosing a youtuber (or two, actually). My first pick would be Kathleen from KathleenLights, but her collection looks so huge that I wouldn’t know where to start! So my other pick is Emily from BeautywithEmilyFox, I think her collection’s a bit smaller but she still has a lot of cool stuff.
How long does your makeup routine take and how many products do you use?
It depends. My I’m-in-a-hurry routine (pretty much my everyday routine) takes me about fifteen to twenty minutes and consists of primer (sometimes), concealer, setting powder, eyebrow pencil and setting gel, mascara, a black eye pencil to tighline, blush, and a chapstick or lipstick. So that’s nine products. If I’m going for a full face I’ll add eyeliner, eyeshadow, a bit of contour powder, highlighter, and a setting spray to that. So together that’s about fourteen products, and it’ll take me about 40-50 minutes to apply.
Have you ever purchased makeup knowing you wouldn’t use it?
Not really. Of course I always buy beauty products with the intention of using them. Although sometimes I’ll purchase a lip product in a – for me – more ”daring” colour knowing I probably won’t wear it as much as my more ”normal” colours, and I’ll end up wearing it about three times a year tops haha.
