Time for something new: a TAG! I think I will do a TAG like every month, or every three weeks, I don’t know yet. Today it is time for the first one, it is called ‘Are you a real beautyfreak?’, well let’s find out!
- What the most recent beauty product that you bought, that you had to save up money for?
I am luckily wealthy enough to be able to buy whatever I want. At least when beauty products are concerned. Though my most expensive purchases are my Dior eyeshadow palettes. I have two of them now and I love them though I don’t use them as much as I should.
- If you were a beautyproduct, what would you be and why?
I think I would be a primer, or a foundation. I am the silent girl, the one who doesn’t stand out. (Well, except for my make-up as I am one of the few who are actually wearing make-up in daily life..) Primers and foundations are the base you need for a flawless make-up but otherwise they don’t stand out, like me.
- How many girlfriends do you have, that you can talk to about that perfect blush or that fabulous eyeshadow?
Well, that’s an easy one! I have no girlfriends to talk about beauty-stuff. There is one person where I sometimes talk to about new beauty products. But that occasions are sparse and for the rest.. there is no one else.
- When was the last time you have thrown away makeup?
Uhm, this week? Once in a while I look through my stash and clean it up. Products that I don’t use any more like kohl pencils and mono eyeshadows (and sometimes a palette) are going to my mom or thrown away.
- How did the makeupmadness start with you?
Actually, I don’t really know. I only remember that I started using my mothers kohl pencils in turquoise (I love that colour!). And I had a cheap palette with a lot of colours but I rarely used it. Somewhere in the past 4 years I started following beautyblogs and my stash started growing.
- When a non-makeupfreak asks you how many nailpolishes or eyeshadow you have, do you give an honest answer?
Sure! Why not? Everyone probably already knows that I love make up and I am proud on my stash. The only problem is that I don’t really know how many nailpolishes or eyeshadows I actually have…
- How many times do you stop by the drugstore when you don’t really need something?
About once a month? Normally I only go there when I think I really need or want something. But most often I don’t buy anything. For example, I was looking for the Essence All About Nude palette but could never find it. Until this week! And of course I bought it though I don’t really need it. (But it is a great addition to my stash, so I am happy.)
- How much time do you spend each day on the internet, reading about beauty?
Let’s see, I read about 7,5 blogs about beauty a day. (One is partly beauty so that counts as a half!). And most of them I read twice a day, so I think I am at least busy for an hour a day. Sometimes less, sometimes more. It is my relax-moment.
- What’s your favourite make-up item?
Mascara, I think. But I love it all! Especially lipstick and eyeshadow! Those three items are really the favourites.
- Do you have a wish list, and how many items are on it?
I did, but not any more. I really wanted the blush from the 2014 Spring Collection of Yves Saint Laurent. But it is not available in the Netherlands. No where. Not even in the most exclusive make-up stores. For the rest, I might want some Zoeva palettes, brushes and blushes. And another Sleek palette (those are so awesome!). But that can wait.
So, that was the tag. Overall I think I am a beautyfreak though I haven’t lost my mind completely in my stash. Or at least not yet.
What do you think?
