Makeup Questions and Answers

Here are just some random makeup questions and answers, I hope you enjoy them! And I would really love to hear your answers ūüėČ

Do you have any makeup memories from your childhood?

My Mum doesn’t really use makeup these days and she never wore ¬†a¬†full¬†face of makeup on a daily basis as far as I know. But in the past I remember she would wear some on the special occasions.

I would never forget the¬†cake mascara she had and how she would use a ¬†lipstick as a blush. I also remember that she had a lot of lipsticks and I loved looking at them,¬†occasionally¬†I also loved using them on myself and… on ¬†the wall. But well, to defend myself I can say that I don’t remember doing that as it was ages ago.

When did you start using makeup? Do you remember what brands did you get?

I’ve started wearing makeup when I was 14, I remember how I’ve asked my¬†parents to get me some makeup for my Birthday and they did. They got me mascara, several eye shadows and lip glosses. I can’t¬†believe¬†that I don’t remember what was the brand’s name though. I remember that I was¬†buying Mary Kay and Max Factor in the past and I was really enjoying both brands.

What product changed your idea about the makeup?

I think it’s time for a giveaway to celebrate the beginning of the new season! Several people commented on how they would love to win some Inglot so I’ve picked up two lip products for you to try. A sparkling red lip gloss and a matte red lip pencil which can be used as a lipstick (read my review here).

So what do you have to do to enter?

Here are the rules. Please read them carefully.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Orange Crush Collection

In my Spring magazine I covered the hottest makeup trends for SS 2011 from the Runway. You could see that colourful liners are hot for this summer. I’ve also included the makeup from Derek Lam show which was created by Tom Pecheux, Est√©e Lauder Creative Makeup Director,¬† which you can see on pages 55 and 56.

And now the Orange Crush this mini collection was inspired by the look that I’ve mentioned.

This collection includes only three products but in my opinion they all look amazing and would work totally hot for this summer.

Pure Color Gloss in Orange Crush, £15.50/$20

This is such a bright and vivid orange colour, definitely for those who want to make a statement with their look.

“Updating your look can be as simple as adding coral gloss over your favorite lipstick shade. Mixing makes it modern.”¬†-Tom Pecheux

Nail Of The Day: Bourjois So Laque Nail Enamel in 29 Dangereusement Rouge

While I am waiting for these¬†beautiful¬†summery shades which will be added to the So Laque collection this summer I’ve decided to get myself ¬†a shade from the already¬†existing range.

I have to say that there are several really pretty shades but I just had to get the No29 Dangereusement Rouge. This colour is just perfect for me, absolutely love it!

 

So what about my impression?

As I already said, I absolutely love the colour and I also like how shiny it looks like. ¬†The formula is nice and it goes on smoothly. And¬†although¬†it is not the most long-lasting nail polish I’ve tried, ¬†it looked perfect for three days and on the fourth it was also nice looking.

The brush is long and quite wide.
