Hello and welcome back, Beauties!! I’ve seen this video floating around on YouTube and figured I’d do the tag as well. I haven’t done a tag post in a while, so keep reading and get into the questions.
The Makeup Style Tag video was first done by Lisa Stevens, I believe, but I’ve seen a bunch of other beauty Youtubers doing it recently. So, let’s just jump right into it!
Question 1. What kind of primer do you use and why? Liquid eye primer or shadow stick?
Neither, if I’m being honest. I typically just prime my lids with whatever concealer I’m wearing that day. I will occasionally use a shadow stick, but not necessarily to prime my lids. If I grab a shadow stick, I’m typically going for a lighter look, so I just blend it out and go.
Question 2a. What color eye shadow makes you feel bold and pretty at the same time?
I’d have to say that matte dark green shadow has been really giving me life lately. It gives me a gorgeous smoky eye that isn’t too dark so I can wear it to work, but could totally spice it up with some glitter or shimmer shades for nighttime activities. I love it.
Question 2b. What eye shadow color do you least like to wear and why?
I really dislike super light shadows, like baby pink and such. They just end up looking ashy on my lids.
Question 3. Do you wear liquid or pencil liner? Black or brown liner?
I tend to use pencil liner. It’s just what I’m most comfortable working with. I also don’t really line my lids that often. I tend to tight line the upper lash line and line my water line. I always reach for a black liner over a brown one. I can never find a dark brown liner that is the shade I want.
Question 4. Covergirl or Maybelline mascara? Come on, you know you are one way or the other.
For me, Maybelline mascaras are what I’ll reach for every time. Maybelline Great Lash is the first mascara I ever owned, and I haven’t strayed far from them since. No matter what other mascaras I’m testing or enjoying, I will ALWAYS go back to one of my Maybelline faves.
Question 5. If you could have your brows permanently done or not wear any blush for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
Well, I already have microbladed brows, so am I disqualified from this question? I love my brows now, but also really enjoy blush….Yeah, I’m just gonna sit this one out lol. Next question!
Question 6. Do you or your best friend wear more makeup?
Definitely me. Most of my closest friends don’t even wear makeup.
Question 7. Who taught you how to do makeup?
A few years ago, I worked at a Cosmetology school in the financial aid department. You had to always look your best there, so I began asking some of the ladies I worked with about makeup. I learned a lot from them about skincare too, which I desperately needed. Then, I began watching YouTube tutorials and began practicing my skills (if you can really call them ‘skills’, but whatever), and here I am.
Question 8. Are you a fan of cream products? (Blush, bronzer, contour, etc.) Why or why not?
I’m not really into cream products of any sort. It’s just never been the kind of product that interests me.
Question 9. Are you a project panner? What projects are you in right now?
Project Panning is something I want to give a try, but haven’t attempted before. Like, I’ve never hit pan on an eye shadow in my entire life. Face powders? For sure. Definitely not eye shadows though. I want to do a pan at some point though.
Question 10. Setting Spray: Do you believe in it? Which is your holy grail?
Eh, I can kind of do without setting spray if I’m being real with you guys. I find that every single one I try makes my pores jump out from under the makeup I’ve applied. Now, I do enjoy the Smashbox Primer Water, but I haven’t really ever used it to set my face. I only use it to prime when I’m extra dry.
Those are all the question in the My Makeup Style Tag. Let me know some of your answers in the comments below. I tag all of you to do this post! 😊
Until next time, Beauties!! xoxo
