What's Your Make Up Style? TAG!

I love doing and reading TAG posts. They're a great way of getting to know some of the people whose blogs you read and, well, it's a fun to read people's answers (click here for my This Or That TAG and here for my Seven Deadly Sins of Beauty TAG). 

I saw this tag on Beauty In a Bottle's blog and, although I wasn't tagged, I decided to do it anyway.

As you can see from the title, this is called the What's Your Make Up Style? TAG. Let's get into it!

1. EEK! You've got five minutes to do your make up for a date. What's your minimum?
Far out. Talk about leaving things 'til the last minute. Although my skin has drastically improved, I sometimes still have the bad skin mindset, so I'd definitely want to apply my foundation. It would probably be foundation, powder, slight contouring, blush with a cheek and lip pot (probably my Essence Cheek and Lip Pot or my MAC Casual Colour), Paint Pot, mascara and lip colour from the cheek and lip pot.

2. Pick a trend - crazy cat eyeliner, super hot pink blush or feathered false lashes? 
Is this for everyday wear or going out? If it's for everyday wear I'd have to go with the Crazy Cat Eyeliner. If it's for the occasional night out, why not be creative and get your false lash on?

3. If you had to either give up all makeup for two months or give up your skincare for a week, which would you pick? 
Giving up skincare for a week. Why? Firstly, make up can do a lot to hide bad skin. Also, I'm really happy with my skincare routine now so, even if I was without it for a week, I'm sure it'd clear up the nastiness of the week.

4. What beauty products are always in your purse?
I always have a number of lip products in my bag. I seriously mean heaps. At one points there was 8 lip sticks. At the moment there's two lipsticks, a lip balm and two lip glosses. I also always have my MAC Studio Fix Powder in NC20, my Nude by Nature Mineral Powder Blush and a number of perfume samples (at the moment it's my faovurite, Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture, and Dior Miss Cherie).

5. Are there any beauty products that you keep coming back to throughout the years?
Although I discovered it at the start of 2011, Max Factor's Lash Extension Effect mascara is the one that I go back to after every attempt at finding a replacement. Apart from that, I can't think of much else. I'm a big fan of changing up my routine and products.

6. Smoky eyes or red lips?
Hmm, I don't know. Both? I love smoky eyes for a night out, however a red lip can also be fun! Seeing a red lip fail can be quite visually offensive, however, so, for that reason, I choose smoky eye.

7. Lipstick or lipgloss?
Lipstick. I used to be a lipgloss girl but over the past year or so, I've been getting into lipsticks a lot more. I like the effect better. Sometimes I don't want my lips to be shiny!

8. Are there any products that you never expected to like but ended up loving?
Although I just bought it and I've only used it a couple of times, I really like my Maybelline Falsies Flared mascara. Given that I've disliked every other mascara of theirs I tried (haven't tried the original Falsies), I didn't think I'd like it at all.

**This last question was added by Beauty in a Bottle, so I've decided to include it too

9. Any products you expected to love but ended up hating instead?
Not that I can think of. The Bioderma Crealine cleansing water makes me break out, which was a disappointment  but I'm still able to use it on my eyes. I also thought I'd like my YSL Touche Eclat more than I do, but I think that's more to do with the hype.

So, ladies and gents, those are all my answers to the TAG! What are your answers? Either leave them as a comment below or I tag you to do this on your own channel! If you do this on your own channel, don't forget to leave a link below so I can check it out.
