Hello beautiful people!
I feel a little stiff today. I done a night shift last night and it wasn’t pleasant, so I have been laid in bed for the majority of the day. That was until I decided I wanted to do some retail therapy. There’s only one way that went, bad.. for my bank account. I do however feel much better now that I have picked up some goodies, and I may even do a little haul post to show you what I got! So as promised, I will be doing my Q&A today! I know it is a little late in the day but I wanted to give everyone as much time as possible. I received a few questions via my last post, my Instagram post and also some direct messages on Instagram. I will try and answer as many as I can and I hope you enjoy loves…
How did you get into makeup?
My makeup obsession was a complete surprise and it all started because I wanted to start making more of an effort in my appearance. I literally searched for makeup tutorials on youtube and then all of these ‘contour’ videos appeared. That day I must of spent a good four hours watching contouring videos and the rest is history. I didn’t realise just how addicting makeup tutorials could be.
If you were a unicorn what colour would your horn be?
YES! I love this question. As much as I am not a really girlie girl, I would still say pink! I don’t think I would feel complete without a pink horn, let’s be honest!
Favourite makeup brand?
This is going to be tricky! If you asked me a few weeks ago I probably would of said Maybelline as they have such a range and I use their products more often than not. Bourjois however are really impressing me, and I also love Makeup Revolution. MUA have some great little gems too and I’m going to stop before I get carried away! hehe.
What’s your biggest accomplishment?
This is going to sound really cheesy, but honestly I am going to have to say my blog. Of course, there are other things that I think are big accomplishments but as of right now I feel like it is the thing I am most proud of. Another one would be keeping my niece alive when I babysit.. I have never been a baby person until my niece came along and I’m proud that I’ve stepped up to my auntie role! Lucky Peyton!
Favourite makeup product for Autumn?
Well, this is my kind of question! I would have to say lip products have to be my favourite. I especially love the L’oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Mon Jules and I have also been loving the Rimmel Kate Moss 107 Lipstick. sooo prettty!
What is your favourite song at the moment?
Well.. for the last day or so I have had Adele’s new song ‘hello’ on repeat. That woman is queen. I love her and I think it’s a killer song to release after a break. She’s doing mumma proud!
Who is your makeup inspiration?
I have no other choice than to name youtubers here because they are the reason I love makeup and they are so easy to idolize. Jaclyn Hill would be my main girl. It’s not just the fact that she is amazing at what she does, it’s the whole package. She is genuine, out there, brave and she’s making a name for herself by doing her own thing. I love how she has morals and actually sticks to them and only does things that she wants to. Not to mention that girl makes me die!
What’s your favourite flower?
I love roses, lillies and peonies.
If you could relive one day in your life so far, which day would it be and why?
I would love to relive valentines day last year. James cooked me a ten course meal (fancy chef duties called and all..) but it was really good and of course it’s food so why wouldn’t I want to relive that hey? muhaha..
Where did you go for your last vacation?
Well, my last holiday was a couple of months back and we went camping for a week like every year. We only went like ten minutes up the road but it is such good fun. My last holiday abroad however was in 2010, my cousin and I went to Cyprus and stayed at my uncles house. It is by far the best holiday I have ever been on. I love Cyprus.
Do you come from a large family?
I would say that compared to other families, mine is relatively small. There are my parents, two sets of grandparents. I have one sister, but then I have three step siblings who I barely see. Now of course there is my favourite little lady running around which makes me very happy but we are just your average family.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
It’s up to you, New York… NEW YORRRRRRRRK. Don’t you just love it when songs pop into your head?
What is your favourite high end makeup brand?
I don’t own loads of high end products. I have maybe three different brands where I have tried one item, but I love mac lipsticks with a passion so I will say Mac! Plus Mac have such a range of products there is bound to be more products that I love! I’ll have to try them out *wink wink*.
How old are you?
I am currently 19 years old, but in exactly one week (yes, halloween) I will be 20. I’m not even excited, I feel like I am not ready for adulthood yet. From what I’ve tried so far, I am going to hate it!
Are you more of a bags or shoes kind of girl?
Bags, definitely bags. I own more bags than I have sense, whereas with shoes I have a plain black pair of dolly shoes that literally go with everything, trainers that I never wear and boots. What more do I need? I do want more shoes, I just never buy them! I do own a pair of going out shoes as well!
Growing up, where you the bold one or the quiet and shy one?
Definitely the quiet and shy one. I feel like I am slowly coming out of my shell, but when you have grown up quiet and shy I feel like you will always have that quality about you. I would have loved to be confident and out there, sometimes it really holds me back but I am working on it.
Finally, what can we expect from your blog in the future?
Honestly, this question couldn’t have been more perfect for this Q&A. I saved it for last as there are some great projects I am working on. For starters, I am preparing for a giveaway for when I hit 500 followers! (currently at 425) I am super excited about that so stayed tuned. I also just plan on doing more reviews, more celeb makeup looks, I want to start trying more high end products and letting you know what I think. I have a couple more series in the works and I just want to continue with what I’ve been doing and mix it up a little bit!
