The lovely Alexandra has tagged me in a make up post, so here are a few pics of my relatively uninspired make up collection with the tag.
How did you get into makeup?
I had a part time job in school at a pharmacy that had Lancome, Clinique, Lauder and Clarins counters. I became addicted to Lancome and spent most of my modest pay check on it.
What are some of your favorite brands?
Chanel, Nars, Stila and Ellis Faas
What does makeup mean to you?
Nothing too serious, just some fun or a bit of extra pep.
If you could only wear 4 products on your face what would they be?
Mascara, Shellac, foundation and lip stain.
What is your favorite thing about makeup?
That you can make yourself look completely different according to your mood (very appealing for someone very fickle like myself)
What do you think about drugstore makeup vs high end makeup?
It depends on the product, for bases and primers I really do think investing the money is worth it, but for trend based make up and colours I think all that’s needed is an easy trip to priceline.
What is one tip or advice you can give to a beginner?
I am not really the person to be giving tips, but my advice would be have fun with it, and if in doubt consult the abundance of make up gurus on the web.
What is one makeup trend you never understood?
Full fake lashes, I am yet to see them look natural or flattering on anyone.
What do you think about the beauty community on YouTube?
I am in awe of them, I am pretty inept myself with make up so I find it really intriguing watching people completely reinvent themselves on you tube.
Ok, so I tag
