40 Beauty Questions!

Hello, friends! I recently stumbled across this 40 Beauty Questions TAG!, and I thought it would be fun to give my answers, and give you a peak into my life, in terms of… well, beauty stuff. I do not know who created this, but I will provide you with a link to the site I found it in.

Here we go!

SKINCARE
-How many times do you wash your face daily?
Honestly, I’m horrible about washing my face, unless I am actually in the shower. I am ashamed to admit that I go to bed with my makeup on more often than not. Ahhh, so bad.

-What skin type do you have (dry/oily/combo)?
I actually have no idea! I would say probably combination skin, because it is a bit of both, though not severe on either side of the spectrum.

-What is your current facial wash?
I use my St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub almost daily. I used to use the lovely Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash, which I looove, but I ran out a while ago.

-Do you exfoliate?
Nothing hardcore, just with my scrub that I mentioned before.

-What brand do you use?
St. Ives!

-What moisturizer do you use?
Up&Up Sensitive Skin Facial Moisturizer, store brand, but comparable to Neutrogena!

-Do you have freckles?
A few, yes!

-Do you use eye cream?
Not yet, probably will start soon.

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Verrrrrry. Ugh.

-Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
I have in the past, it did nothing for me at all.

MAKE-UP
-What foundation do you use?
Currently, the Younique liquid foundation in “Velour”, which was a gift, but I’m not a fan. Before that, Rimmel Matte Foundation.

-How about concealer?
I think it is also Rimmell, but I have no idea! I don’t use it much. I never have luck with concealers…

-Do you know your undertone color?
Warm? I think.

-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
No thanks!

-Did you know that you are suppose to change your mascara every 3 months?
Nope, and I definitely don’t. Oops?

-What brand of mascara do you use?
Maybelline! Pink tube.

-Sephora or MAC?
Too broke for either.

-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
Nope.

-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Aside from my fingers (I know, I’m awful)? I have a Real Techniques foundation brush, which I love, and some sponges. And two different slanted brushes for brows/eyeliner. That’s it!

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Not anymore. Too expensive.

-For the face?
I need more.

-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
Honestly, I don’t wear much eyeshadow. I got some samples of a few Younique shades, and I like “Sexy” and “Confident”.

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Pencil usually, but I dabble in cream.

-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Um, never actually. Not even in the car.

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
No idea, haha.

-Do you use mineral makeup?
I have in the past… too broke for it now.

-What is your favorite lipstick?
I don’t wear lipstick!

-How about lipgloss?
I don’t wear gloss either really, but I have a pretty pink one from VS that I have had for years… and should probably toss.

-What is your favorite blush to use?
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Cheek Flush in “Pinking of You”.

-Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
Noooo.

-Do you like drugstore makeup?
It’s all I use!

-Do you go to CCO’s? (cosmetic company outlets)
… what?

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I have, yes.

-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Only eyeliner!

-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Probably all of the ones that I’m guilty of.

-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick/eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
Definitely neutral.

-Which celebrity always has great make up?
Celebrity? Pssh. I only pay attention to my favorite makeup gurus on YouTube! Zoella, Marzia, Louise, and my current obsession, Stephanie Lange.

-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?
Mascara probably, though I have black lashes already… hmm. Maybe just foundation?

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
I usually do!

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I don’t even look good WITH makeup on!

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I don’t have much experience outside of drugstore makeup really, I get most of mine from Target, or somewhere similar. I dabble in several brands, as each has its hits and misses. I like quite a bit from Maybelline though.

-What do you think of makeup?
I don’t really know. I like makeup, even though I’m terrible at it, and it doesn’t do much to help my appearance. You definitely don’t need makeup, as women (and men) are beautiful creatures anyway, but I love to watch tutorials and marvel at the skills others have with it. Makeup can definitely be fun!

And there you have it! I hope you all enjoyed laughing at how horrible I am when it comes to beauty things.

Thanks for reading, friends!

Dream Journal 3/9/16

I was with a group of 6 or 7 people, all armed to the teeth with weapons, making our way through a thick forest toward a huge mansion in the distance. There were zombies closing in all around us. Once in front of the mansion, there was one zombie standing at the top of the steps by the front door, but she was different than the rest of the other zombies. She stood perfectly still and stared at us with creepy, white eyes. One of the girls in our group locked eyes with her, and the zombie’s face morphed into a zombified version of the girl from the group, and her eyes turned to a solid, creamy blue color. Suddenly, all of the zombies around us stopped moving, their eyes turned the same color blue, and they just stood there, swaying.

We took this opportunity to run into the mansion. Once inside, we barricaded the door, and the group immediately relaxed. The group, which had been 6 or 7 people, now had about 20 people in it, including popular YouTuber Markiplier, and we all separated to explore the mansion. The lights were on, and the mansion was very clean, as if the zombie apocalypse had never happened. I went upstairs with another girl from the group, and we raided a giant, walk-in closet in one of the bedrooms. I found a really cute bathing suit in my size, and put it on.

Connected to the bedroom was a huge bathroom with a walk-in bathtub. I filled the tub all the way to the top, and sat in it. Mark came in and pointed out the window, and asked if I had seen the weird zombie with the blue eyes. I looked outside and she was now out on the lawn, staring up at the window. I shuddered and looked away. Mark told me that he had asked out another girl in the group, but she said no, and I hugged him and asked if he wanted to get in the tub with me. He said yes, and jumped over the side and into the tub, which was now a much larger hot tub.

He looked out the window again, and the zombie was right outside the window, and we were suddenly on the ground floor. Mark locked eyes with her, her face turned into a ccreepy version of his, and her eyes turned to a muddle brown color. She began crying loudly. All of the zombies on the lawn began crying loudly as well, and Mark jumped out of the tub and ran from the room. I stayed in the tub, and just looked away from the window.

Several minutes passed, and I heard someone scream. I ran into the bedroom, where the girl I was with before was fighting off a zombie. I shoved it off of her and stabbed it in the head, then pulled her to her feet. I looked out into the hallway and noticed that all of the lights were off in the mansion. I asked her where everyone else was, and she shrugged. We walked into the hallway, where we were greeted by  a horde of zombies roaming the main floor. We silently made out way to the library, but we didn’t come across any of our people. The lights were still on in the library, and among the zombies were half a dozen human maids and butlers, cleaning, seemingly unaware that they were surrounded by zombies. We killed out way to them, and got them out into the main lobby, where our people were bus clearing out the zombies.

Once we met up with them, we fought our way back outside to the front lawn, where the hypnotic zombie was waiting. One of the guys in our group charged her, but before he got to her, their eyes locked, her face turned into his, her eyes turned red, and she viciously attacked him, tearing him apart. Blood and gore flew everywhere. She snapped her head up and looked at us, blood dripping from her mouth. She made a loud roaring sound, and we split up and ran for our lives.

That is the last thing I remember.

[A little bit of back story for this next dream bit. In most of my dreams where I am running, I forget how to run, and it ends up being a weird skipping run, and I get angry. I can not run in my dreams for some reason.]

I was back in my hometown, and I was walking through the playground at the elementary school. There was a group of young teenagers goofing off near me, and I was trying to ignore them as I stretched. I was wearing workout clothes, and started walking briskly toward the baseball field at the end of the playground. I started jogging, and decided not to go any faster, because I was amazing that I was successfully jogging, and not limping/hopping/skipping instead. I started crying as I jogged around the field.

That is all I remember before I woke up.
