Found this 40 Beauty Questions tag somewhere on the web, here are the questions:
How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice usually. Unless something happens where I need to wash it any additional amount of times. Never less than that though.
What skin type do you have? (dry/oily/combo)
I would say combination. I get super oily in my T-zone.
What is your current facial wash?
I’ve been using raw African black soap for the past two or three years now, never anything else.
Do you exfoliate?
All the time when I have one. 💁🏾 I love exfoliating.
What brand do you use?
Varies. I like harsher scrubs though. There is this St. Ives Green Tea Scrub I used a few years ago that was really nice…
What moisturizer do you use?
Right now I’m using the Lancôme Energie de Vie
Do you have freckles?
No, but I wish I did! I love how they look, especially on SZA (even if they’re not real)
Do you use eye cream?
No, but I suppose I should.
Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Mmm, not really. I never broke out more than average.
Did you ever have to use ProActiv?
Yeah. I don’t think it worked lol. Or maybe since my skin wasn’t extremely bad in the first place I didn’t notice? I don’t know. Honestly I think that once I started eating better and drinking more water my skin got 100x better. I haven’t had a breakout in years.
What foundation do you use?
I use the Kiss New York Aqua BB Cream exclusively now. I used to wear foundation but sometimes I worry that heavy wear is going to age my skin. It’s stupid because primers and proper skin care prevent things like that. I have been wanting to try the Neutrogena Healthy Skin foundation since seeing Jackie Aina and Rose Kimberly wear it. I didn’t know there were darker shades since I almost never see them anywhere.
How about concealer?
I’ve finally learned how to do the whole highlighting with concealer thing, so where I was using no concealer, I now use the L.A. Girl Pro Concealers a lot. When I’m not practicing that, I’m not using any concealer, or I use the Ruby Kisses 3D Face creator.
Do you know your undertone color?
Yellow/golden 🌞 I keep getting matches with these super red undertones and it’s annoying because then I always look orange 😦
What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I think they look really nice, I just don’t know how to put them on. Then, I also look at them in the packs, even the “natural” ones, and get dissuaded from buying them because I think there’s no way for these to look natural. I have such small eyes!
Did you know that you are suppose to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yeah. I use that bihh till its done though. May be bad for me but I zonnnn’t have $$ or time to be changing mascara that often. I’ll just keep using samples.
What brand of mascara do you use?
Whatever I have honestly. My favourites so far have been the L’oreal Miss Manga, the Clinique High Impact, and Smashbox Full Exposure.
Sephora or MAC?
Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Brushes and sponges. Mostly sponges. I’ve been using my Real Techniques sponge exclusively for the past month or so. I also have a BeautyBlender (the original one).
Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
No because I don’t really go hard with eyeshadow.
For the face?
I always prime my face. ALWAYS. Right now I’m still using the Becca Poreless Priming Perfector. Fantastic choice for my oily skinned kin.
What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I like golds/earthy metallics.
Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Liquid 🙌🏾 CAT EYE STAYS POPPINNNNNNNNN
How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
They’re nice. I just feel like I’d always spill them.
Do you use mineral makeup?
What is your favorite lipstick?
Not really a huge lipstick person, but I like the Ruby Kisses Matte lipsticks. I’ve been more into the liquid lipsticks lately, and for those I like the L.A Girl Matte Pigment Glosses.
How about lipgloss?
See above. As for your regular glossy glosses, I’m not a fan. I don’t like that “wet” look.
What is your favorite blush to use?
Do you buy your makeup on eBay?
Do you like drugstore makeup?
I live for it honey. And the Beauty Supply Store, can’t forget that. They’ve never done me wrong.
Do you go to CCO’s? (cosmetic company outlets)
Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
Yeah, I still do. Maybe when I finish school.
Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Sleeping with makeup on 😒 TAKE CARE OF YOUR DAMN FACE
Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
Depends. I gravitate more toward neutrals for the eyes on a regular basis but will use bright ones to line my eyes sometimes. I like bright lip colours though.
Which celebrity always has great make up?
Kelly Rowland. I feel like she always looks nice without having that “Instagram beat” evvvvveryone does now. PLUS she’s a glowing brown goddess and I love her. I also really love SZA’s makeup. It always looks so natural!
If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
Meaning after I’ve done what I needed? In that case blotting powder. Which is what I do anyway. I never usually bring things out of the house with me. If I could only use one product, probably concealer. My skin isn’t too problematic, so I’d just like for it to be even.
Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yeah…I do it a lot now (lazy bihhh).
Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I look more put together with makeup on, but I don’t mind how I look without 🙂
In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
Hmm…that’s a tough one. Maybe L’oreal for drugstore. I haven’t tried too many things from more expensive brands.
What do you think of makeup?
I think it’s great! It’s a great form of self-expression and it’s fun to use. I don’t think it should ever get to a point when someone doesn’t love them self without makeup, but if it gives you that little “oomph,” then go ahead!
How about you guys? Answer some of these in the comments 🙂
