40 Beauty Questions Tag


-How many times do you wash your face daily?
I try to do it twice but since working I never get up early enough so I currently only cleanse once. I also use an eye makeup remover and makeup wipes too.

-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
I'm combination dry.

-What is your current facial wash?
Skinstitute and I love it.

-Do you exfoliate?
Yes but not as often.

-What brand do you use?
St Ives.

-What moisturizer do you use?
Clinic's Dramatically Different Lotion and I also use their Super Defence (I think thats what its called) coz it has SPF unlike the Dramatically Different.

-Do you have freckles?
Yes but they are more like beauty spots coz they are separated all over my body.

-Do you use eye cream?

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Yes when I was in my late teens I broke out quite bad. Before then I still had acne but it was no where near how bad it got. I rarely get pimples anymore though.

-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
Yes. Proactiv really helped me in my late teens. I no longer use it anymore though as I don't have acne anymore and proactiv is an acne treatment not a cleanser! It makes me angry how people complain that it dries out their skin, thats what acne treatment do!!! DEEERRRR. Just use a good moisturiser and you shouldn't have a problem with dryness anymore.

-What foundation do you use?
ATM I'm using Nude by Nature but I also have Bare Minerals which I LOVE

-How about concealer?
I'm currently using Inglots AMC Cream Concealer in 62 (I think?) for underneath my eyes and MAC's Studio Finish Concealer in NW20.

-Do you know your undertone colour?
I'm a neutral pink.

-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I love them.

-Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes but I judge it on how the product feels too.

-What brand of mascara do you use?
Ones I like include Clinics Deep Impact, MAC Plush Lash, Inglot Perfect Length and Define, Smashbox...

-Sephora or MAC?
We don't have Sephora here so I would love to choose Sephora to see what they have.

-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?

-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Brushes of course. Things like tweezers and stuff are handy when applying lashes too.

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Yes I seriously can't wear any eyeshadow without a base.

-For the face?
Yes Inglot's Under Makeup Base.

-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I'm not really into MAC eyeshadows that much right now. I guess satin taupe even though I haven't worn it in months.

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?

-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Not often, only if I'm in a rush but its more like a tap rather then a poke.

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I love the colour pay off from them but I always go back to pressed shadows.

-Do you use mineral makeup?
Yep I love it as my foundation.

-What is your favorite lipstick?
I love so many different colours, its too hard to choose.

-How about lipgloss?
Inglot's Sleek Platinum Lip Gloss in 83.

-What is your favorite blush to use?
Inglot's Blush in 34, I also love NARS Orgasm.

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
Never, I don't trust makeup on ebay. I would rather purchase from an independent online store.

-Do you like drugstore makeup?
Of course! And the prices are so amazing.

-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
Australia doesn't have a CCO.

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
Yes and I did. I now have my Diploma in Makeup Artistry.

-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I'm quite clumsy when it comes to eyeliner and if I'm in a rush I sometimes smudge my mascara.

-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Foundation without Blush or Bronzer. Its unnatural to just have foundation on as its only 1 tone and so it gives you the appearance that your dead.

-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
It depends what mood I'm in. I'm really loving bold lipsticks ATM.

-Which celebrity always has great make up?
I love Lauren Conrad's makeup. I also like Jennifer Love Hewitt's, Natalie Portman's and Kim Kardasian's makeup.

-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Yes, quite often I go down to my local store without makeup on. I also think its important to let our skin breathe.

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I look okay. But I look better with makeup.

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
Inglot, MAC and Benefit.

-What do you think of Makeup?
Its a way of expressing myself and its also kind of like my vice. Since I don't smoke, drink (I do when I'm going out though, which isn't often), do drugs, or drink coffee I figured its ok to be a makeup junkie.

Le Tan, Spray Tan Review

Hello peeps and welcome back to another episode of jodie's neglected blog hahaha Aight lets skip the jibajaba and get this mini review/ pro's and con's on the road for Le Tan's Le Tan in Le Can which is an Australian drugstore spray tanner so I'm sorry if your in another country and can't get your hands on this. I'll most likely do a video review on this too so I'm just gonna skip the extra long paragraph that most bloggers do on reviews and just break it down in a very easy to read pro's and con's table. Ain't I nice?

  • easy to apply
  • isn't orangy
  • comes in a lighter shade and darker shade
  • even though it still smells like self tanner it isn't as over baring
  • very affordable and easily available in australia
  • safe for body and face
  • didn't get flaky on my skin
  • I used the lighter shade (since I have fairer skin) and I pretty much had to use the whole can for 1 use to get the shade I wanted. I'll be trying the darker shade next time to compare though.
  • you still have to wait something like 8 hours (sorry I don't remember) before showering. But thats to be expected for a drug store spray tanner.
  • didn't last as long as I would have hoped
  • when applying you have to make sure that you have a tissue or something to remove the residue that builds up on the spray otherwise you'll get big blotches on your tan

Thanks for checking out my blog guys and as a reward I have posted this super cute pic I found. I want hello kitty ears for my kitty! Love you all xx
