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!

The Jolly Blogger Award

18. December 2014

Christmas is only a couple of days ahead, and, matching to the season I’ve been nominated by KimKine for the Jolly Blogger Award!

The Jolly Blogger Award

Do you open your gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

Usually on Christmas Day :) But it changes from year to year.

Favorite Christmas song?

I like the Christmas songs from Frank Sinatra, especially the classic “White Christmas” song of him.

Favorite Holiday movie?

Haha, I’m always getting into Christmas mood if I see “Home Alone” in TV…It may be not my favourite holiday movie, but it is the most Christmas-y…And I love watching “Nightmare before Christmas” when the holidays aproach :)

The Jolly Blogger Award

Favorite Christmas decoration?

Light chains…I love how everything looks so bright with all these lights on Christmas.

Favorite Christmas food?

I’m a huge fan of roast chicken and wild pork! I like to cook by myself, too, and I enjoy it everytime :D

Favorite holiday/winter drink?

Hot Chocolate *_*

The Jolly Blogger Award

Snow or no snow?

I like snow as long as I’m inside my warm home. It is nice to look at and the nights seem less dark. The place in Germany where I live is usually more rainy than snowy, and if we have some snow it will turn into a muddy mess after 1 or two days :/

Do you send out cards or no cards?

I forget it most of the times, but I try to do better this year…luckily this reminded me of sending some..:D

Do you secretly still believe in Santa Claus?

I have to cite KimKine here “Believing in the generosity and love of your friends and family is much better!” That’s definitively how people should think about Christmas time and the purpose of this holiday.

The Jolly Blogger Award

Your favourite winter clothing item?

The most important are definitively skarfs, but I usually don’t leave without wearing a cap or other head piece :D I received a fox beanie from a dear friend and you can see me wearing it above ♥…My nose appears  red in the picture, like Rudolph the red nosed reindeer…~_~

One beauty product you cannot be without this winter?

Most important is hand cream! My hands get so dry, especially if I dont wear gloves.

Best Christmas memory?

I don’t have any specific Christmas memory because it was always kind of special. I love that you get to spend time with your family so it is always a good memory.

Chie from The Brown Eyed Fox

Rini from Rini Cesillia

Evelyn from Korean Beauty Dream
