I’m excited to share my first tag with you guys today!

the beauty tag

I’ll be completely honest, I get tagged to do these kinds of posts pretty frequently, but I’m absolutely terrible about keeping track of + actually doing them! I spend  lot of time + take a lot of pride in putting together quality blog posts, but I really want to include some more fun + less formal kinds of things on here too. This tag came at the perfect time…I figured it’d make for a great little weekend post! 🙂

First things first, a shout out to Christina for tagging me! If you’ve never been to her site, go check it out [http://www.christinaschiccorner.com]. She shares great tutorials, thorough + honest reviews, and so much more [like this iced coffee recipe I’m still dying to try!]

Christina prepared 8 beauty-related questions for me. Take a peek at my answers! –>

1.) What is your one favorite makeup item? I love bronzer! There’s nothing better than having a little color.  I feel most confident + beautiful when I’ve got a tan going on [natural or faux]! 😉

2.) When did you first start wearing makeup? I began playing around with makeup in the 7th grade. Concealer was a godsend for sure, and I specifically remember using a dark blue shadow as an eyeliner LOL. But I didn’t start to wear a full face of makeup until the end of my senior year of High School! I had my makeup professionally done for prom and I was completely shocked by how much better my skin looked with foundation! I was immediately hooked from then on. I was the first born…we’re always late to the game! 😉 

Me at my senior prom! With horrendous eyebrows + a weird looking left eye. LOL
I swear I looked high + low for a decent senior prom picture, but this was all I could find! Me + my horrendous eyebrows …and weird looking left eye. LOL But yay for foundation!!

3.) What is your favorite part out of your makeup routine? Filling in my eyebrows. It’s the one thing I do everyday, even if I don’t wear makeup.  🙂 brow crop

4.) Do you prefer volumizing or lengthening mascara? My lashes are really long to begin with, so I’d have to go with volumizing. 🙂 marc jacobs velvet noir

5.) What makeup brand is your favorite? I love drugstore makeup, and I’m a huge fan of NYX products, but if I could pick any… I’d have to say Benefit. I love everything about their line. Especially their fun + colorful packaging!

6.) Would you prefer to have dry or oily skin? I’ve dealt with both extremes in my life + oh my gosh, I’d hands down prefer oily. Dry skin can be such a challenge.

7.) What is your favorite beauty tool? Hmm, can I pick a hair tool?! I’d have to say my 3-barrel waver!! Anytime you see me with natural looking waves, they’re totally man made! I’ve loved this thing for years!


8.) What is your favorite beauty tip or trick? For a tip…I’m really into highlighter lately. Like really into it. I think it adds the perfect finishing touch to the face! And for a trick… if I’m out + ever find my face super oily + in need of a blot…the paper toilet seat covers in public restrooms make the perfect blotting sheets. It sounds gross, but you obviously use a new one! If those are unavailable,  the back side of a receipt works really well too! Trust me on this one! 😉

And there you have it! I’m going to keep this pretty low pressure, so I invite ANYONE who’s interested in doing this tag to partake in the fun! 🙂

My questions for you will be:

  1. What is your favorite brand of makeup?
  2. How do you feel about fake lashes?
  3. Where do you sit/stand to put your makeup on everyday?
  4. Do you like to watch any YouTube beauty gurus? Who? 🙂
  5. When did you start wearing makeup? Do you remember the first product you ever used?
  6. What’s you’re favorite mascara?
  7. What’s your go-to everyday hairstyle?
  8. When do you feel most beautiful? 🙂

Have fun answering! Be sure to comment + let me know if you’re going to participate in the tag so I can check it out! 😉

Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend everyone!

  1. Loved reading through these Q & A’s! It’s always cool to see where have evolved in the makeup world haha 🙂 BTW my mother-in-law does the same thing with toilet seat covers and it really does work!!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend girl!

    Xoxo- Danielle

    • Thank you for reading! It’s definitely fun to look back and see how you’ve evolved — usually for the better! haha. I’m SO GLAD someone else does the toilet seat cover thing. It really does sound disgusting, but obviously you take a free one out of the package! LOL I hope you had a great weekend! :):) XOXO

  2. This post was great! I loved reading all your answers. I try to do one tag a month and it’s one of my favorites to write just because it’s so easy and fun. I have super oily skin and will grab anything to blot with in serious situations, and I have to say those toilet covers and receipts are definitely two of my favorites that do the job best! 🙂

    • Thank you for the tag!! It was so much fun to do, I should really incorporate more! My Mom had read my blog and was like appalled at the thought of using a toilet seat cover LOL! I was like, it’s just paper, obviousssssly you use a new one!!

  3. I’m totally doing this! I always wanna do a beauty post but I never know where to start! I wish I kept some old pics from high school but didn’t take them in my move. I was quite the make up queen in the 90s lol.

  4. I just started using bronzer earlier this year, but I’m already in love with it. I finally found a shade that worked for my pale skin. Now I feel like my face looks so flat and meh without it. GIRL your eye brows are amazing and always look so good. I didn’t start filling in my eye brows till I was a senior in college. They’re my favorite part too and I always at least swipe some tinted brow gel through them even if I’m not wearing any other makeup. I love NYX too, but if I had to pic an overall favorite, it would definitely be MAC. I love everything they do! I’ve been all about highlighters lately too. I’ve bought a few new ones lately and I’m all about the glow. I loved this tag!

    • Yay! I’m so glad that you liked it! 🙂 Bronzer is a Godsend. I swear it works miracles -but it can be hard to find one that works really well with your skin. And Amen for eyebrow upkeep! 🙂 I stiiiiiiill have yet to hop on the MAC train. The more you talk about their products the more I really want to try them!!

  5. Benefit Twins!!!! I totally agree… they seriously have the best products! These tags are so fun reading and learning new tricks. Loved the idea of seat covers.. I secretly use receipt paper too 🙂

  6. I haven’t used my three barrel curler/crimper in a couple years now! Your making me want to bring it back!! Loving that look! And bronzer is the best thing ever!!
