The Make-up Addict Tag

As a Beauty Blogger, I'm a bit of a beauty product fiend!! 
Kat from Tales of a Pale Face set up this tag to delve a little deeper into our make-up addictions! Looked interesting so thought I'd give it a go!


So here goes....
1. Which product do you still keep buying more of despite having plenty in your collection?
LIPSTICK Since making the transition from wearing nudes and beige colours I have realized there are a whole array of colours to be tried out and worn hence my current lipstick obsession. I have but one pair of lips but have a colour for every occasion! That's my story and I'm sticking to it! Ha!

2. What's the one product you couldn't live without?
Apart from my eyelash curler which counts as a tool! I can’t live without my bare minerals foundation. Does such a great job of covering the flaws but still allows your natural skin to show through.

3. Favourite makeup brand?
This is an easy one! Bare Minerals of course… i love all their products from skin-care, eyeshadows, mascara and lipsticks. I really like how natural they are, not filled with harsh chemicals instead skin loving minerals.

4. How big is your make-up collection?
Hmmm …… Next question!!

5. And how do you like to store it?
I’ve an IKEA Alex unit beside my bed with make-up and skincare currently using. I was lucky enough to pick one up on ebay for the bargain price of £12!! Muji storage drawers house the rest, over on my dressing table. Just love sorting and re-arranging! Seems to calm me down!

6. How many items of make-up have you got in your handbag at the moment?
Bare Minerals: Ready compact foundation, Mineral veil and Around the clock eye-liner in ‘midnight’. Kat Von D concealer, MAC Soft & Gentle highlighter, Maybelline the rocket mascara (waterproof), MAC plumful lipstick, MAC Electric Cool in ‘super watt’ and lastly Soap & Glory super-cat Fat eye-liner. So that’s 9! Not bad thought it would be more actually!!

7. If you could raid another blogger's stash, who would it be?
The Sunday Girl, she was the first blog I started reading and inspired me! Love everything from her layout to the photos. Content is spot on too!

8. How long does your usual make-up routine take and how many products do you use?
My ‘every day’ make-up usually takes about 10-15 minutes. Depending if I am doing a cat eye flick … then add another 10 mins as i usually go wonky and have to re touch my eye-shadow and get the line straight. So if I’m pushed for time I never attempt to do eye-liner on my upper lashes!!

9. Have you ever bought make-up knowing you wouldn't use it?
I’ve not bought make-up knowing I wouldn't use it BUT have bought make-up that I know I will reserve for a special occasion. My Estee Lauder eye-shadow trio are lovely purples but too glittery for everyday.

10. Tag a few other make-up addicts to do the tag!
I'm tagging Sian from 'Sian-Marie's Beauty Blog', Gemma from Miss Makeup Magpie, Jaye from 'bed in the kitchen', Erin from erinlouisehunt, and Sandra from 'The Black Pearl Blog'
