All About Skincare and Makeup

Seriously...My blog has been collecting 'dust' recently...
I have absolute zero ideas on what to write...
But I never failed to keep my blog reading up-to-date...
So when I was browsing one of my favourite blog : beautyholicsanonymous...
I stumbled upon this amazing questionnaire posted on her blog...
And I decided to do the same...
*booooo!! shame on me, the copycat*

And owh, upon reading her answers, I feel soooo small...
Under-equipped to be precise...
*and thought I knew a lot..darn toodles!*

1. How many times do you wash your face daily?
Twice daily~
2. What skin type do you have?
Oily skin... I don't need highlighter to achieve that overdose oh-so-radiance effect..ahaha..haha..ok enough..and oh! I have sensitive skin
3. What is your current facial wash?
The Face Shop Arsainte Eco-Therapy Multi-care Cleansing Foam...environment-friendly.
4. Do you exfoliate?
Yerp..Or I will ended up in dullsville... 
5. What brand do you use?I use The Face Shop Peeling Day White Jewel. Not really good. Can't wait to finish up this tube of mine so that I can have the excuse to buy a new one.  
6. What moisturizer do you use?
The Face Shop Arsainte Eco-Therapy Crystal Water Super Gel. Testing the new launch products from The Face Shop. So far I'm quite happy with it. Environment-friendly, oil-free, cooling and non sticky.
7. Do you have freckles?
Thank God no.
8. Do you use eye cream?
Err...when I remember to actually use them???
9. Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Occasionally. Mostly due to unsuitable products.
10. Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
Come again?? hehe..
11. What foundation do you use?
I don't use foundation. Instead, I use The Face Shop Waterproof BB Cream. The only one that can withstand my oily skin without me looking like a wash out zombie by the end of the day. Long lasting and no zits! (thank God)
12. How about concealer?
I rarely used concealer. Or maybe because I didn't found the right one yet? All the concealers I've tried tend to have cakey effect after a few hours.
13. Do you know your undertone color?
Yellow! :P
14. What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I adore them! They make your eyes look bigger and rounder. But I only use them for special occasions.
15. Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
16. What brand of mascara do you use?
Shame on me. I loathed mascara. I opted for fake lashes instead. :(
17. Sephora or MAC?
Ermmm..never been to or use both. Kinda pricey to a lowly grad student like me. Maybe one day when I'm a high-power researcher. *ok perasan!*
18. What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
For BB cream, I prefer to use my magic tools.. My fingers of course! They're warm enough to make the application easier especially for a novice like me. The rest especially eye shadows, I rely on brushes instead because I'm clumsy..
19. Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Yes, I have excessive oily eyelids.
20. For the face?
Never. I think my BB cream is enough.
21. What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
Blue. But I never managed to pull that look. :(
22. Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Definitely liquid. Again...I have oily eyelids. Any pencil eyeliner, waterproof or expensive ones, always always gave me the smudgy just-cried-from-a-sad-movie look.
23. How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Never... This one particular technique I've been practicing 5 years ago..and still learning...
24. What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
Errr...I'm being honest here..They are not the same as the normal eyeshadows?? *innocent eyes*
25. Do you use mineral makeup?
Never. Maybe because they're quite costly. Will give them a try one day.
26. What is your favorite lipstick?
Too many to be named. 
27. How about lipgloss?
I rarely used lipgloss. I like my makeup to be quite long lasting. So I stick to lipbalm, liptint and lipstick.
28. What is your favorite blush to use?
The Body Shop Shimmer Waves 01 Bronze. Gives me a healthy beach glows look.
29. Do you buy your makeup on eBay?
Never. I'm the kind of person who browse and test makeup on my hand first before I make my purchases. 
30. Do you like drugstore makeup?
Yes! I do use Maybelline & Loreal... They're the gems for us students.
31. Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
Yes but I don't have the time...
32. Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Yes especially applying eyeshadows. I always ended up looking like a panda or zombie. :(
33. Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Ahhh...I'm a novice myself. I'm alone might commits thousand of makeup crimes. ;p 
34. Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick, eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I'll always opt for neutral shades. Nothing too radical.
35. Which celebrity always has great make up?
Korean celebrities!! I always adore their barely-there makeup. 
36. If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item, what would you use?
Liquid eyeliner. I have big eyes. So why don't I accentuate them in a first place??
37. Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Hardly. I'm recovering from a skin disaster last year. Going out bare-faced might give some of my friends (and me!) a shock of a lifetime or nightmares. And this lowered my confidence.
38. Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Sometimes. When I'm alone *perasan sorang-sorang tengok cermin*...But I'm still not confident going out nude. Ermmm..face ok..not body...
39. In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
Still early conclude. But right now I'm loving Benefit cosmetics.
40. What do you think of Makeup?
Necessary without overdoing it. :)
