Random Beauty Tag

Hello Lovelies!
I decided to do a tag today as I love reading them myself. I think it gives a nice insight to the person behind the blog..although this more of a beauty related tag than a personal one I still really enjoy doing them and I hope you enjoy reading it!
What is your skin type?
I have normal to combination skin, I tend to get dry down the sides of my nose and more oily on my chin & forehead.
What is your morning skincare routine?
I tend to just splash water on my face in the morning and use my Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser in Normal/Combination for the daytime as I find it nice & lightweight on my skin for under make up.
What is your evening skincare routine?
I use my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish to cleanse my face and to remove all make up. Then I use my Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic toner on a cotton pad all over my face. Finally I use my Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream.
Do you exfoliate?
Even though when I cleanse with my Liz Earle I'd lightly be exfoliating my skin with the muslin cloth I do like to do a proper exfoliation once a week both on my face & on my body. For my face I use the Vichy Detoxifying Exfoliating Cream and for my body I love the Soap & Glory Flake Away!

What skincare products are on your shopping list?
The Bioderma has been on my to buy list for quite a while and I also really want to try the Liquid Gold that so many people have been raving about!

What is your favourite product that you use?
Definatly my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish..It is my holy grail cleanser and I literally can not live with out this! 

What is your favourite face mask?
I normally just buy the cheapy face masks from Tesco, I'm loving the Montagne Jeunesse in Dark Chocolate at the moment. I got the little bottle of it and it's taking me quite a while to use up!
What moisturiser do you use?
For during the day I like to use the Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser in Normal/Combination, I think its light enough for under my foundation. At night then I like to wear a heavier moisturiser, I love the Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream its so lovely and thick so it really does the job!
Do you use an eye cream?
No but I'm looking to try one!

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

When I was younger I used to break out alot but I wouldnt call it acne

How much money are you willing to spend on a skincare product?
As much as I felt needed..I am a skincare fiend and I feel the more I invest in my skin the better it will look.

What foundation do you use?
At the moment I'm loving No.7 Stay Perfect Foundation, It's fast becoming my favourite foundation!

What is your favourite concealer?
I love Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection for blemishes and for under my eyes I love the Maybelline Lumi Touch.

Do you know your undertone colour?
I haven't got a clue! I should really find that out!

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I love them for a bit of drama on a night out but I wouldn't wear them everyday!

Which mascara do you use?
Benefit's They're Real mascara! Couldn't be without it!

What is your favourite MAC product?
I adore the lipstick in Hue! I've repurchased it twice already.

Which brushes do you use?
A mixture really, I have some Real Technique's, MAC and Sigma. I'd love to invest in some more though!

What are your thoughts on primers?
I love them! At the moment I'm using the Rimmel one and I love it!

What is your favorite eyeshadow/palette?
Oh I have way too many to choose! I love my Inglot pallets and my MAC, and who could forget the NAKED pallet?

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Both! Pencil for my waterline and liquid eyeliner for my flick!

What is your favourite Lipstick?
My MAC Hue!

Do you wear lipgloss?
I've actually started to wear it alot more recently but I never used to be into lipglosses!

Do you prefer bronzer or blusher?
Both! I love the MAC blushers and my NARS Laguna!

Do you like to contour?
Hells yeah! I might not be the best at it though!
Do you use drugstore or high end cosmetics?
A mixture of both really, I'd spend more money on basics like foundation and concealer etc

What's the worst makeup crime you've committed?
I used to go quite heavy on the eyeliner when I was younger...shaaame! 

Do you prefer bold or neutral shades?

Again a bit of both, I'd either go bold on the lips and neutral eyes or the other way round!

Which celebrity always has great makeup?
Millie Mackintosh! I love her!

If you could leave the house wearing only one item of makeup, what would you use?I think mascara, lashings of mascara!

Do you think you look good without any makeup on?
I wouldn't say I look good with no make-up but I would get away with not wearing any, I'd just rather not!

What is your favourite makeup brand?
Oh I couldn't possibly choose! I love MAC, Inglot, Maybelline, Benefit...I could go on and on!

Which makeup brand do you think is overrated?
Ummm I don't really know, I like different brands for different things, so I think some items from certain brands may be over-rated but not the whole line!

What's the most you'll spend on an item of makeup?
Again as much as I felt needed...I may begrudge paying it but if it does the job I'll pay what is needed!
