Beauty Blogger Tag: Get To Know Me

I saw this tag on Evelyn's blog, We Were Raised By Wolves, and I liked the look of the questions so I thought I'd give it a go. I was actually tagged by Hannah from Midnight Violets but it was after I'd already written this post so I'm not using her questions, I mention this just because I think you should all go and check her blog out as she does excellent FOTDs and make-up reviews. Anyway, on with the questions!

1. What beauty resolutions have you set yourself for 2013?

I attempted a 31 Day Foundation Free Challenge but only made it to Day 28. Other than that I'm just trying to use less chemicals on my skin (where I can) and to drink more water as I think I just wasn't drinking enough on a daily basis last year.

2. If you could click your fingers and make one beauty product appear to be yours, what would it be?

If I had to pick right now I'd probably say a Nars blush, I have my eye on Douceur. It looks like a very easy shade to wear and I'm not all that adventurous when it comes to blushes!

3. Tell me one of your favourite makeup tips.

I'm having a hard time thinking of any! (It's the pressure of it being a direct question, I think.) I think the most important tip I ever got was just always pick shades that suit you, like, I know that on the whole I can't wear pastel eye shadows as they tend to wash me out. Or baby pink lipstick as it just makes my cheeks look too ruddy. Choose make-up that flatters you, not what looks good on other people. (I think this may be a bit obvious but it was an important tip for me that influences how I choose make-up.)

4. If you could raid anyone's makeup bag, famous or not, whose would it be?

It would have to be my mum's! My mum passed away quite a few years ago now and it was an at age when make-up wasn't an interest of mine at all. Now that I'm older I do think that it would have been really nice to chat to her about what her favourite lipstick is or what tips and tricks she learnt over the years. I think a raid through her make-up bag would be somewhat of a treasured moment now.

5. What's your current favourite skincare brand?

At the moment I'm really loving the Body Shop's skin care range, but I'm a die hard fan of L'Occitane and another brand that has really impressed me lately is Laidbare.

6. Why did you decide to start blogging?

Initially it was purely a social thing, I was dying to find people to talk to about beauty. Slowly it's become more than that though. I love writing and always have, having a space of my own to write about what I want to write about is really quite special. I also really enjoy sharing products I love, if someone else can find the pleasure that I get from finally finding a spot cream that works of a moisturiser that helped get my dry skin under control then that would make me happy. 

7. Who is your celebrity style crush?

Emma Stone. That woman. Words abandon me really. She's always just impeccably dressed and made up and I love that she suits so many different hair styles. Yep, I be style crushin' on Stone. 

8. If you could eat just one food forever, what would it be?

One food? It would probably be something like pizza. Or lasagne, okay, scratch pizza off the cards. It would have to be lasagne. I lurrrrve lasagne, especially when it's a vegetable lasagne. Vegetable lasagne is pretty much the best food ever in my book.

9. What is your dream job?

It would probably have to be working as a travel journalist. I love travelling and I love writing, writing about travelling sounds like the perfect job to me. 

10.  What is your favourite film?

I'm a big lover of Studio Ghibli films so initially I thought it would have to be one of those. But then I remembered (and could have hit myself for forgetting) that is has to be 500 Days of Summer. 500 Days of Summer is my break-up/I'm feeling sad film. I went through a difficult break-up last year and must have watched this film about 100 times since then and now. It never gets boring, it's always touching. It's everything I could ask for from a film.

11. Tell me one random fact about you - it can be anything!

Everything I think of sounds boring when I write it down, haha. What about.... I have no piercings. I don't have a single piercing, no earrings or anything for me. I don't know if that's unusual or not. I don't think I'd mind getting a piercing I just don't have any motivation to go and get one done. 

So there you have it! Now you know a little bit more about me. I tag any of you who'd like to do a 'get to know me' post. I think the questions are great and I look forward to reading any posts that you write! (Do link me them as I'd love to read them.)
