What kind of coverage do you prefer from a foundation? I like a thicker coverage but has to be matte, can’t be doing with a shiny face
Favourite high end brand? I don’t actually have one, I prefer more budget products because then I won’t feel guilty about it
What cosmetic brands have you always wanted to try but haven’t? Benefit, I keep getting tempted but I won’t justify paying £20 for a mascara!
Favourite drugstore brand? MUA or Rimmel – both such good value for money

What is your most cherished makeup item? Bourjois clubbing liquid eyeliner
How often do you shop for makeup? Every couple of weeks, depends what I need but foundation etc is normally once a month

Do you utilize coupons, rewards cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics? Allllll the time
What type of product do you buy the most? Powder, followed very closely by eyeliner
Is there a brand that you absolutely can’t stand? MAC. Bought their supposedly darkest black, longest lasting eyeliner and 20 minutes later it was grey and flaking off…and their customer service at the store I was in was horrendous which definitely put me off going back. I know that’s not necessarily the brands fault but customer service is the one thing I’m really picky with

If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose? Bourjois

What do you apply first – concealer or foundation? Foundation
Do you ever consider taking makeup classes? Occasionally, but then I find a youtube tutorial instead!
What do you love about makeup? It lets me change who I am, that bit of red lipstick or flick of eyeliner can turn me into a sassy confident go getter which I love
