Now, Let's Get Started!

First of all:
Welcome Beauties!

Now today I want to give you guys a small lead-in to my blog and what's a better way to get to know each other than the Get to know me - Beauty Tag?!
So, I read this tag on a few blogs and I'm sure you might know it as well, but for those who don't: 
The tag has about 10 to 30 questions about hair, makeup and beauty habits as well as personal stuff and is divided into the regular 'Get to know me - Beauty Tag', which is more about beauty favs and stuff like that, and the more personal 'Get to know me - The Beauty Blogger Tag'.
I'm going to pick 10 of my favorite questions from both of them and now, without further fuss, let's do this!

1. How long does it take for you to put on your makeup?
Well that depends on what I want to do or where I'm going. My kind of 'Everyday-Look' takes me about 15 minutes because I'm super-lazy in the morning and I really don't want to get up even earlier than I have to anyway. But when I'm doing a full face makeup look for a party or any other, let's say, more festive occasion, it can take about 30 to 45 minutes because then I like to take my time. 

2. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Face, definitely. Maybe it's just a habit but I feel like I can blend out my foundation way better when I don't have to fear smudging already done eyes. 

3. How tall are you?
I'm average 1,70m or 5'7".

4. Do you speak any foreign language?
I now have to say english because it is not my first language (so whenever I make mistakes or use words that are kind of lame, let me know in the comments so that I can improve haha). Besides that I had spanish at school, but I would'nt say that I can really speak it fluently. I also know a few words in korean and japanese because I have some friends over there but I'm more than far away from really speaking it.

5. What's your favourite colour?
Pink. Totally cliché I know. 

6. What's your favourite makeup brand?
That's a hard one. I feel like I can't really decide because there are so many products and brands I haven't tested yet but if I had to choose, I would go for Urban Decay or Dior for high end and Kiko for drugstore makeup.

7. If you could change anything about your face, what would it be?
That would be either my teeth or the fact that I am pale as a ghost.

     8. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
Hahahaha. Weeeeeell I think if you take a look at my instagram (which I linked for you in the sidebar, but it's actually my personal account so there will be no blog news, only the weird personal me haha) it's obvious that I buy way too many products and of course I don't really NEED all of them. But to my defense, I always read a lot of reviews and wait a certain time if there's a huge hype about a product before I buy it, to make sure I really want to have it even after some time passes.

9. Liquid eyeliner, pencil or gel?
My one and only true love: Gel eyeliner. I always had the problem that every liner I tried just disappeared. I'm not joking. It was like my eyes would eat them. Regardless of whether I used a pencil or liquid felt-tip liner, it just wouldn't last on my eyes. So I decided to try gel eyeliner when it first came out and I still use the one I bought back then! It is the usual black one from Maybelline and I absolutely love it. It doesn't smudge or disappear and I think it's a lot easier to apply than average liquid liner and even more pleasant to wear because of its creamy consistency.
(However, I'm just testing a pencil liner from Kiko and I'm pretty thrilled so far, so if you want me to do a review let me know in the comments!)

10. I try never to be seen without___?
This would be eyeliner again. I just think that eyeliner is the best way to either change or enhance the natural shape of your eyes and make them stand out even more. There are so many different ways to draw your liner and all of them achieve a different effect, which I love as well.

Yaaaaay, so that was the 'Get to know me - Beauty Tag' guys!
I tag everyone who wants to do this tag and hope you enjoyed mine.

Let me know if you liked it and if there are other tags you want me to do in the comments!

  1. If I had to pick a favourite makeup brand I think it'd have to be NARS…I definitely need to try more Urban Decay products though! Great post x


    1. aw thank you for commenting :)
      NARS is great too you're right! it's a such shame that it's so hard to get where I live.

  2. We've always liked putting our face makeup on before our eyes too, we're not too sure why. Like you said, it's probably just a habit. We'd love to read more about your favourite products from Dior and Urban Decay.


    1. thanks for your comment! :)
      nice to hear that you think the same about the 'face-before-eyes-thingy' :D
      I'm planning to upload some reviews about my favourites from those two brands as well, so stay tuned ♥
