Beauty questions tag

I've seen this tag on a few blogs and I really enjoyed reading everyone's answers so I thought I'd answer the questions myself:

Definitely neutral colours.

Concealer or powder, depending on the situation.

Yes, especially if I'm running late.

I don't look horrendous but I definitely look better with some make up on.

Hmm, probably MAC, but I love lots of different bits from various drugstore brands.

What do you think of make up?
I love how it can be used to enhance your looks and make you feel so much more confident about yourself. And there are so many colours/textures and brands to choose from! I love swatching and buying make up and I find applying make up very relaxing and therapeutic.

I'd going to pass this tag onto anyone that wants to do it. If you do, link me to the post as I'd love to read your answers.

  1. I love MAC too! This was a great post~
    What kind of eyeliner do you use/recommend? If you ever want to change it up, I think L'Oreal Kohl pencil works pretty well. I use it but want to try out a new one since I'm almost done with it...so I'd love to hear what you use!
