//First of all THANK YOU everyone who has taken the time to hit that follow button, I appreciate each and every one of you, you beauty’s.
//Secondly a huge thank you for Kirstenemma for nominating me this award. She has a lovely little blog going on and I am sure she would love for more of you lovely’s to go and check her blog out.
Despite it being a competition what a fabulous way to get to know your followers such a great idea but there are a few rules to follow:–
So here are my answers to Kirstenemma questions….
- What has been your biggest Beauty/Fashion FAIL?
Oh gosh, probably anything I wore as a teenager! Super cringey looking back at those. It was all about studded belts, skinny jeans, skater brands, Emo hair and thick eyeliner….so gross. Funny thing is I really thought I was cool as well, no wonder the ‘chavs’ as we called them used to pick on us!
- What has been your biggest Beauty/Fashion TRIUMPH?
Sadly, I don’t think I have ever had one, gosh that sounds sad. One day it will!!
- What’s the best bit of beauty/fashion advice you can pass on?
One thing I would advise is dress for your body type. I am still learning this now. I mean I am still trying to find the perfect pair of jeans which can make my hips and thighs look in proportion but if you find clothes that fit your body type whether that be pear, hourglass, apple etc you will feel so much more confident.
As for beauty, personally I find simple is better (I suppose that goes for fashion too) find the right shade of foundation, bronzer, blusher, highlighter and a simple lip. It will just highlight your already beautiful features, whats the point of plastering yourself in make up to hide that face. Hand in hand in make-up goes skincare, I would definitely recommend looking after that skin, a great face wash, exfoliator and moisturiser will reek benefits, I use the Clinque anti-blemish set.
- Who in the public eye inspires you with either make-up/style?
Oo gosh I have tons of inspiration from the public eye.
Make-up I am really loving a beauty blogger/vlogger called Fleur de Force, that’s ideally how I would love my make-up to look like, but it never does (sigh).
As for style Fearne Cotton has been a massive inspiration, she can just pull off everything and I like her casual style. Baggy jumpers & skinny jeans, gosh I can’t wait for autumn jumpers to come out of the wardrobe. She just has that edge which I would love to pull off (I need her long skinny legs).
Along with Fearne I adore an actress called Kate Bosworth, She just dresses simple but beautifully. She’s very boho chic and boho is one of my favourite looks EVER.
- Who in the public eye is the total opposite to you in terms of style/make up?
Oo I am really going to have to think about this one…… probably people that are in The Only Way Is Essex, they are far too glam and caked in make-up for me!
- What is one fashion trend you just didn’t ‘get’?
Toms and crocs. GOSH! what even are they?!? I have never understood them especially when they were combined with chinos, the poor lads thought they were so cool didn’t they. Does make me giggle.
I can’t even stand crocs on children, they are just absolutely vile (apologises if you like/have them, eek!).
Other than that the only thing I can remember from the top of my head was back when I was a kid in the 90’s….those octopus trousers. What happened there?!?
- What is your go-to foundation?
I have just finished my go-to foundation and that is, Nars sheer glow. Unfortunately I’ve ran out so I am testing Rimmel Wake me up foundation. It brightens up your skin and has medium coverage so will last most of the day, especially if you use a primer. I am already missing Nars but atleast Rimmel has a foundation pump with it, it’s near enough impossible to get one for sheer glow! Thats the only downside.
- What do you think your next beauty/fashion purchase will be?
Well I can easily answer this…..NARS!!! In fact I need to purchase a lot of beauty buys, I am going through that phase you get when everything runs out at the same time! Do you ever have that?
As for fashion, autumn/winter clothes are a must, I am really into the deep purples, oranges and greens this autumn! I can’t wait to get all cosy and all my tan bags and shoes will accompany everything this autumn even the trees, woo!
- What perfume are you loving right now?
I am not a perfume lover dun dun dunnnn! Any perfume/body spray gives me a headache which isn’t fun. I am more into nice smelling skin products such as Palmer’s cocoa butter, I use it everyday after my shower, it smells good and it leaves my skin silky smooth. As well as skin products I use vo5 high volume hair spray which has a gorgeous scent and I get a lot of comments of how nice the scent is.
- What is in your travel make-up bag?
These four products really help me spruce my face up through out the day, especially the Nars illuminator, it brightens up my face and gives it a refresh.I also always use an EOS lip balm but it looked a tad too used for a photograph.
