Makeup TAG

After some late night blog browsing/microbiology study sesh, I stumbled upon Sara from blog Thoughts and Dresses. She did this really quick makeup tag that I thought was fun and easy, so I decided, what the hell, I should do it too! I've got to say, I get some sick joy out of reading the answers to the questions and then answering the questions myself. Expect more tags in the future guys. 

  1. EEK! You’ve got five minutes to do your makeup for a date. What’s your minimum?
    All I need is to do some brown eyeliner on my waterline, beautify my brows, and put on some lipstick! 5 min? Can doooo!
  2. Pick a trend—crazy cat eyeliner, super hot pink blush, or feathered false lashes?
    I love cat eyeliner! My boyfriend tells me I'm like a cat (sassy and grouchy lol) so eyeliner it is!
  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?
    Probably skincare! I only use cleanser, tone and moisturize. But for makeup, man...I don't use much but I feel more confident with even just a bit of eyeliner! 
  4. What beauty products are always in your purse?
    I ALWAYS have Smith's strawberry lip balm in my purse! And also a rollerball fragrance. Right now it's Pacifica's Hawaiian Ruby Guava. 
  5. Are there any beauty products that you keep coming back to throughout the years?
    Usually NYC waterproof eyeliner, but besides that I like to try new things. 
  6. Smoky eyes or red lips?
    Red lips! I feel like red lips can be used during the day and night, whereas smoky eyes are more of a night time look. 
  7. Lipstick or lipgloss?
    Lipstick all the way! Lipgloss has that sparkle and sheen that I don't like. Also, I hate when it's windy and your hair gets stuck on your glossy lips. Ew.
  8. Are there any products that you never expected to like but ended up loving?
    Lipstick lol! I thought I would look clowny with it on but after starting to experiment with it recently, I've been buying more and more! My latest lipstick purchase is Sephora's Decollete, all thanks to watching Clothes Encounter's Jen Im
Here's some pictures of my staple products I like using on the daily:
NYX eyebrow brush- very essential! A groomed brow is a happy face.

Stilla Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner- It pretty much does what it says it's going to do: be waterproof and stay on (majority) all day. I remember the sales associate at Sephora was selling the shit out of this eyeliner when I asked her about it. Happy ending- I love it!

Pacifica Hawaiian Ruby Guava Perfume Roll-on- I have never tried any Pacifica products out before I got this awesome Groupon that gave me a great deal on their products. So I picked out some products, and low and behold, they're amazing! There's so many perks about them; 1. smells wonderful, 2. cute packaging, 3. Pacifica is committed to helping the environment. You can get them online and at your local Sephora. 
M.A.C. lipsticks- well, actually one lipstick because I only have one (Angel). But having tired other lipsticks out there, I think the quality, colors, price, and even smell has got me hooked! At $15 a pop I think it's not too bad for something so wonderful! I plan on picking up the lipstick Ruby Woo soon!


  1. cute post love a make up tag

  2. I love Pacifica! I'm using their Blood Orange roller ball when I'm not using Daisy. And I'm definitely gonna look into the Stilla eyeliner! Lord knows I need all the staying power I can get in this Hawaii heat.

  3. This is such a fun and interesting tag. I don't think I can ever choose between my skin care and makeup >-<


  4. I love red lipstick too - it just gives that instant feel good factor!

    Fashion, Well Done

  5. Oh I am the same, after I put on lip gloss I always regret it, My hair just sticks to my face and lips - so not attractive..

  6. Ruby Woo would be a great next purchase! It's such a gorgeous shade.


  7. Aw thanks for mentioning me! I really enjoyed reading you answers. Especially the wind, hair and lipgloss situation haha :D xo
