I had the lovely Miah from Miah.Keleigh on Ig (www.simply-miah.blogspot.nl) send me a tag she created, “The Beauty Blogger Tag”. Tags are always fun to me. It’s a cute way to learn about someone, plus it’s always cool to tag others and see their responses.
The beauty blogger tag
This Or That?!
Eyeshadow or Eyeliner?
Winged Liner thank you 🙂
Lipstick or lipgloss?
Lipstick, it has longer staying power and more comfortable for me to wear when my hair is loose.
Blush or bronzer?
Bronzer, it’ll warm up my face and give some type of definition.
Strobing or contouring?
Contouring, it isn’t going anywhere any time soon lol
Liquid, gel or pencil eyeliner?
Gel, I can create an extremely sharp wing, I can use it as a base for a deeper smokey eye, and create all sorts of graphic liner. 😉
I would have to say between L’OREAL, Maybelline and NYX Cosmetics.
Favorite lip product?
NYX liquid suede cream lipsticks.
Favorite eye product?
L’OREAL infallible eyeshadows.
(havent found one yet) 😦
High End Edition!
I have been asked this a thousand times and I can only narrow it down to 4 (plus one). (alphabetical order)
Anastasia Beverly Hills
Make Up For Ever
(Idk where to place colourpop cosmetics but they have become a new favorite)
I am all about that highlight bling lol
Do you prefer high end over drugstore?
I dont prefer one over the other, but working at Sephora I definitely have more experience with higher end products.
How do you feel about the Urban Decay Naked Palettes?
I think they are good, offer a good variety of neutrals for all skin tones. I just wish each palette offered a little more matte shades to help create dimension.
Favorite brow product?
All hail the QUEEN. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown with clear brow gel.
No brows or no foundation?
I don’t mind walking around with no foundation, but great brows are everything.
Favorite Beauty Blogger or Youtuber?
I have a ton of favorites and I cant possible narrow them down. Any one who has artistry and good personality I adore. But I must say that Jaclyn Hills latest video has touched my heart. She’s definitely in my favorites. This is her latest video. A must see if you’re all about empowering others and against negativity. “Trying to make a change/ late night thoughts” .
Favorite thing about makeup?
As an artist what I love most is the ability to lift someones confidence with makeup. Although we should feel beautiful with or without it, studies show that only 4% of women wake up feeling beautiful. My job is to not obnly enhance your beauty but making sure that you walk out FEELING beautiful.
If you had $1000 to spend on makeup, what would you buy first?
LORD, I have no idea. I am almost positive it would just go to Sephora though.
Which beauty brand is your all time favorite
I cant pick just one .
How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
I was about 15 years old when I started wearing makeup. (I tell a little story about this in my “makeup story tag“)
Who taught you to apply makeup?
I am a self taught artist, Ive learned through trial and error. I have read a few books but its all about perfecting your craft.
Would you rather spend money on makeup than clothes?
I would rather spend money on makeup lol.
Tell a story regarding a personal makeup experience.
There is a client of mine I’ll never forget. Working in Sephora, I have met many beautiful souls but this one touched my heart. I had a client that she was close to my age (26), she approached me and told me she needed help picking out osme makeup because she had a family event to go to. She explained that she doesnt know how to apply makeup and wanted help learning. I was more than happy to help this sweet girl. I asked her what was the event and type pf look she was going for. She started telling me that it was a baby shower for a family member and that she wanted to look beautiful. Before this day she hadn’t shaped her brows, or put in extensions. Out of curiousity, I asked her what made this event so important from other family events, and her answer was “I’m tired of feeling like the ugly duckling in my family”. Mind you this girl was already gorgeous without makeup, young pretty and petite. Her eyes began to feel watery. I told her the truth that was laready pretty and I was only there to enhance her feautures and make her feel bomb. We turned that frown upside down, I began to teach her how to apply foundations, brows, a day smokey eye, etc. Right before I was about to apply mascara to her lashes, she started bawling in tears and gave me a huge hug. She said “Thank you for making me feel and look beautiful”. I couldn’t help myself and got emotional as well. Point of my story is that as an artist my gratification is the simplicity of making others feel good.
Where are you from and what is considered beautiful in your country?
I am from New York City. I love that this city is a true melting pot full of all sorts of people, ages, ethnities. I also love the city life.
That is all for this tag guys.
