This week has been super busy so in order to squeeze in this week's post I thought I'd do a tag. I was scrolling through some beauty posts on bloglovin and I came across this tag by that's just fabulous. Thought I'd give it a go as it may still give you some insight on my beauty habits. So, here goes...
If you could have anyone in the world do your makeup, who would it be?
This is a hard one. However, the first person that popped in my head was Carli Bybel. She has never failed to impress me with any make up look she's done. I feel like we have very similar tastes in makeup and I would honestly fangirl so hard if I ever got the chance to meet her. She seems like such a genuine person and I would trust her blindly.
What's your top makeup tip?
For eyeshadow, always start off with a base shadow which is very similar to your skin tone. Apply that all over the lid up to your brow. This will help blend any darker shadow you apply to your eyes later on.
What one makeup item could you not live without?
Probably concealer. I feel like I use this for so many different things, whether I'm trying to brighten up my undereyes and conceal any dark circles or else when I'm having bad skin days and I need to cover up some acne scars or spots.
What one skincare item could you not live without?
I think I'd have to go with my cleanser on this one. Although I must admit, I try to put off removing my makeup till the last possible minute, there's nothing better than the feeling of refreshed and soft makeup-free skin just before you head to bed.
What are you worst at when it comes to applying makeup?
I used to really struggle with winged eye liner, and although I'm still not the best at it, I've definitely gotten much better. As they say, practice makes perfect!
What's your biggest pet peeve when it comes to beauty?
The only thing I can think of is badly drawn eyebrow shapes. I've seen some that have made me cringe, but obviously to each, their own!
What's your favorite makeup era?
Another hard one! Hmm... I love the 50s. For a simple and quick look, I put a warm brown as a transition colour in the crease, some wing liner and a red lipstick and voila... I'm channelling my inner Audrey Hepburn!
What's your guilty pleasure product?
Eyeshadow! It's a bit ridiculous honestly the amount of different eyeshadows I own, but I just can't help it. I'm all for flawless skin, but somehow I always gravitate towards eye products somehow.
What's your underdog product?
The essence I love Stage Eyeshadow base. This was one of the first makeup products I ever bought and I still love it. I think that Essence is such an underrated brand. They have some great quality products at such affordable prices.
What's your favorite makeup product of 2015?
Damn! This is definitely the hardest question for me... it's so hard to pick just one. I have a whole blog post about my 2015 favourites and that was already suuper hard to cut down. So, I'm going to cheat and at least choose 2: the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer in Medium/ Deep and MAC's lipstick in Mehr. They're still my go-to products in 2016!
So, now I would like to tag Emily from Lifestyles of Emily and anyone else who would like to do it :) Can't wait to see your answers!
Hey guys :) MERRY CHRISTMAS! Wishing you all the love and joy in the world. By now, you probably know that I LOVE tags so I thought what better way to celebrate this day than to do the Christmas Tag. I saw this tag on Thatlitteblogofeverything and I loved it so I wanted to try it out myself. Make sure to check out her blog as well :)
What is your favourite Christmas film?
Although I love all Christmas classics, my favourites would definitely have to be Elf and Christmas with the Kranks. Tim Allen and Will Ferrell always manage to make my day.
Have you ever had a white Christmas?
I wish. Since I live in Malta, it is very unlikely that I will ever get to experience a white Christmas unless I’m on holiday during this time. I’ve only seen snow once in my life on Mount Etna in Sicily.
What’s your favourite Christmas colour?
Gold,definitely. I love gold all year round but I just think it’s such a festive colour. Gold burballs are the best!
Do you like to stay in your PJ’s or dress up for Christmas?
Well, usually I tend to dress up cause we always have some sort of lunch plans. However, after all the food (feeling like I’m about to explode), as soon as I get home I love to stay bundled up in my PJs under a warm blanket watching some TV, unless I have other plans of course.
Hey there :) It's time for another tag post ... just a sneaky little post to help get to know me a bit better :P I first saw this post on the blog From My Vanity by Katie Garvin, although her post was posted a while back in September of 2014. If you want you can check her post on this link: http://www.frommyvanity.com/2014/09/get-to-know-me-beauty-blogger-tag.html
Now, to the questions :) ....
1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Naturally, it's quite frizzy and curly.
2. What is your natural hair colour?
Dark Brown (most people tell me it's black, it's not)
3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I have never dyed my hair but I really want to.
4. How often do you wash your hair?
Most of the time, about twice a week.
5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?
It kind of depends on what mood I'm in. My style is very classic but if I'm trying a bit harder, I try to include some more girly pieces and look a tad bit more feminine. Yet again, on an everyday basis, I tend to stick with the basics and just wear black jeans and a t-shirt.
6. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I always do my own. I've only had them done at a salon once, to be honest.
