The Beauty Lover Tag

27. April 2016

I’m really happy that the lovely Kim tagged me in The Beauty Lover Tag because this one contains really some nice questions. Thanks again, Kim! Please head over to her blog, she is one of my favorite reads :) I’m going right into it, too:

The Beauty Lover Tag

1. If you could have anyone in the world do your makeup, who would it be?
I never had my makeup done by anyone else than me so I surely would be curious whether a skilled makeup artist would do it any better…Neverthless, if I chose only one person in the world it would be Dita von Teese…of you know me for some time you know that I adore her because she is so ageless beautiful in a glamorous way. She states that she is doing her makeup herself for most of her shootings and stage appearances, so it would be nice to have her as makeup artist :D

2. What’s your top makeup tip?
Hahahaha, actually, I’m no makeup pro at all…I’m terrible at eyeshadow and pressed powder foundations. My eyeliner is okay but mainly because I apply eyeliner since forever…mostly I’m too lazy for any thoroughly makeup and I hardly used powders and bases…only occasionally on weekends….one tip that worked out for me is to apply transparent powder before foundation or bb cream. It reduces the problem that the makeup settles into the lines….I think it is generally known as Wayne Goss method …

3. What one makeup item could you not live without?
Eyeliner and lipstick…haha…I have many lipsticks…(still planning on doing a post on my collection…

4. What one skincare item could you not live without?
For skincare it is definitely cleanser!…and sunscreen :D

5. What are you worst at when it comes to applying makeup?
Applying eyeshadow neatly and make it look like a decent smokey eye makeup…oh…and I cannot apply false lashes at all :‘D

6. What’s your biggest pet peeve when it comes to beauty?
It seems to be a general trend for mid-ages to elderly women in Germany to apply blue eyeliner, but have a dull face and barely no other eyemakeup apart from this…especially women with blonde hair….I don’t think that this is any pretty at all and I’ve been wondering over and over when this was considered pretty…. I’m always on the brink of asking….

7. What’s your favorite makeup era?
I totally agree with Kim here: I love the 1940’s and 1950’s pin-up makeup! This is what I consider to be feminine….but it is no only the makeup but also the outfits and the hairstyle which all matches perfectly and looks really pretty! I’m not talented in hair-do’s and generally too lazy to apply rollers everyday….but I wished I could…

8. What’s your guilty pleasure product?
Luckily, I never quite see the sense in buying expensive products because the ones I received as gift or for reviewing were not always worth that much money either- at least in my eyes. Surely there were some breathtaking and luxurious products but after all you can find a cheap and less pretty looking alternative for each of them. I also would consider a 20 US $ lipstick as pricey and I only have one Lipstick from Mac for example…which I love, but which is not better in surviving through a meal than any other cheaper lipstick…But I’m willing to spend more money on perfumes and haircare on the other side. My favorite perfume is Angel from Thierry Mugler and the scent simply lasts for hours! And I love the Shiseido Tsubaki Haircare.

9. What’s your underdog product?

At the moment I do not have any specific in mind, but I usually love to try our different drugstore brands…

10. What’s your favorite makeup product of 2015?
I made a list of my favorite products >>here<< and taking a look back know my absolute favorite from this list would be the I’m From Honey Mask!

And now I would like to tag my sister and her blog Miss Lovely Attitude and Evelyn from Korean Beauty Dream :) Hope you eenjoyed reading this post!

The Blush Addict Tag

16. September 2015

I would never have considered myself as a blush addict since I have way more lip products than blushes, but after being nominated by KimKine (please do check out her wonderful blog!) I discovered that I have a bunch of blushes and for people with only one or two this might already be considered as an addict. Hopefully, you will enjoy my collection of blushes, although most of them are no high-end blushes and most shades are similar :’D

The Blush Addict Tag

1. What colour blush suits you the most?

I like rose shades, but I think coral/peachy shades suit me most…

2. Pressed/cream/loose blush?

I like cream blushes because it is so easy to use them on the go. Most of my blushes are pressed blushes though.

3. Favourite shimmery blush?

Usually I don’t buy any shimmery blushes. But my favourite of the two I own is the Etude House Princess Happy Ending Rose Cheek Blusher.

4. Favourite matte blush?

At the moment it is Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in shade #11, before it was Bellapiere Mineral Blush Desert Rose.

The Blush Addict Tag

1028 Visual Therapy Muse Powder Blush, Kryolan for Glossybox Blush, Bellapiere Mineral Blush

5. Favourite cream blush?

Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher and 3CE Creamy Cheek Stick

6. Favourite drugstore blush?

I used to buy the Manhattan Cream Blusher regulary, when I only used and owned one single blush.

7. Favourite high-end blush?

My only higher-end blush is the Benefit Dandelion Blush which is part of my Benefit Feelin’ Dandy Kit.

8. Favourite bright blush?

I don’t have any bright blushes. the brightest would be 1028 Visual Therapy Muse Powder Blush.

Benefit Feelin’ Dandy Kit

9. Biggest blush disappointment/regret?

Holika Holika Love Fantasy Blusher. It is so pretty, but the lid doesn’t close properly and it largely depends on the brush you use whether the pigmentation is visible or not.

10. Best blush packaging?

Etude House usually does a great job in packaging, so I’m very easily tempted to buy them. I’m still lusting for Canmake blushes because they look super pretty, too, but I didn’t try any yet.

11. What’s on your blush wish list?

Canmake blushes are on my wishlist. And the famous NARS Orgasm Blush is something I would love to try. Kiko also launched a new ollection with some beatiful cream blush colors.

12. Number 1 holy grail blush?

I don’t have a real holy grail blush yet, but I was positively surprised by the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher, because I didn’t expected it to be too good. It is one of my most used blushes at the moment.

The Blush Addict Tag

I probably don’t have the most exceptional blush collection, but I hope you still like it. I have linked the blushes I reviewed in the text, so ou can read some more details about each blush if you are interested. You are also welcome to do the Blush Addict Tag yourself.
