Thought I’d change it up a bit and fill out a survey
How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice. With a cleanser at night, and just warm water in the morning.
What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
What is your current facial wash?
Shiseido’s Pureness Foaming Cleanser, on my 3rd bottle now and can’t see myself changing! I love that it removes my makeup so easily!
Do you exfoliate?
Yes, I try to do it religiously at least once a week, but if it’s been a long week I could forget
What brand do you use?
Laura Mercier’s Face Polish, the smell takes a bit of getting used to (because I’m not a fan of scented skin care products), but I love how fine the grains are, leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.
What moisturiser do you use?
Clinique Super Rescue Antioxidant at night, and Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense for the mornings.
Do you have freckles?
I think so! Very light tho.
Do you use eye cream?
Yes, Clarins Sun Control Eye Contour Care SPF30 for the day and Clinique All About Eyes for night.
Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Back when I was a teenager, I had it terrible on my forehead. It was literally covered with scars! But as I entered my 20s, they slowly disappeared and I might get a pimple maybe once every 6 months now?
Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
Nope, I find it hard to trust stuff I see on info-mercials, even tho they could very well be great products, the fact that they are on an infomercials makes me steer clear. I’m cool like that, lol.
What foundation do you use?
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20 for “normal” life when I feel like wearing makeup. Otherwise I have a range of different foundations depending on the type of shoot.
How about concealer?
Normally none, for shoots I use either Bobbi Brown or Laura Mericer.
Do you know your undertone color?
Nope, I feel like I should tho…
What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I adore the look, but I hate feeling them on my eyes and ouch when I take them off. Pain for beauty!
Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, but I usually throw mascara out based on how well it works. Once it starts to get clumpy, I throw it out.
What brand of mascara do you use?
Covergirl’s Lash Blast is my current favourite.
Sephora or MAC?
Given we don’t have a Sephora in Australia, MAC hands down.
Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Fingers, brushes, cotton buds, cotton pads and tissues.
Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Always if I’m wearing eyeshadow
For the face?
Yes, but only for photoshoots
What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
This is constantly changing, right now I’m loving the Honeycomb trio by NYX.
Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Neither, gel all the way! Pencils always smudge after a few hours, though I do use them for my waterline. Liquid liners haven’t really appealed to me.
How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Never, but I have more often than I would like to admit, gotten a speck of gel eyeliner on my contacts, terribly irritating.
What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
Love them! But only when I have time to actually use them.
Do you use mineral makeup?
Yes, I’ve totally fallen victim to their entire marketing scheme
What is your favorite lipstick?
I don’t wear lipstick unless for photoshoots or special events
How about lipgloss?
I don’t wear lipgloss, unless for a photo shoot and then it would depend on the theme.
What is your favorite blush to use?
Toss up between NYX Blush in Natural and NARS Blush Orgasm.
Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
Only nail polish.
Do you like drugstore makeup?
Love it! It can be very very hit and miss unfortunately.
Do you go to CCO’s? (cosmetic company outlets)
I don’t think we have any in Australia
Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I’d love too, just need to money and time.
Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Not as bad as when I was a teenager!
Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Anything that isn’t flattering. I love being precise
Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
For work, always neutral. For everything else, the sky is the limit (especially when it comes to photoshoots)
Which celebrity always has great make up?
No idea, I don’t follow celebrities.
If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
Eyeshadow, doubles as an eyeliner when wet!
Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Of course, and I do almost all the time. I only wear makeup to work if I’ve had a long night before and I don’t conduct photoshoots everyday
Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Sure do (I think everyone looks great without makeup), but I know I look better with it (as do most people)
In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
Hmm…. I think each brand has a strong focus point. Like MAC with eyeshadows, GA for foundations, Bobbi Brown for concealers etc. I couldn’t live with just one brand!
What do you think of Makeup?
Makeup is art, it’s therapeutic and of course I love playing with it. It has so many purposes to many different people, and a great mutual topic for connecting with other people over
