The Beauty Blogger Award

Hey everyone!

I am very excited to announce that I have been nominated for another award. I was nominated by the lovely Natalie to do this award! Go check out her blog – it’s awesome.


So, here we go.



1.State the name of the person who nominated you.

2.Answer the questions the person who nominated asked you.

3.List 10 random facts about yourself.

4.Nominate 15 bloggers who’s blogs are about fashion or beauty.

5.The people who you nominate have to have under 200 followers. – I wanted to nominate whoever I wanted! I don’t think it should be based on followers.

6.Let the bloggers know you nominated them.


The questions I was asked:

1.What is the makeup product you can not live without? 

Smashbox Photo Set Finishing Powder! If you have oily skin, it will be your new best friend. It’s a translucent powder that you set your foundation and concealer with and it’s the only thing that’s ever kept me oil free all day.

2.What is your least favourite makeup product to put on?

Liquid Liner. It’s difficult to get both eyes exactly the same and my hooded eyes are tricky to work with!

3.There is a fire, and you can only grab three things. What would those three things be?

My diary, my laptop and my camera.

4.How long does it take you to put on a full face of makeup?

On a day-to-day basis, probably 15-20 minutes. If i’m going somewhere nice and I want to dress up a bit more, it can take about 45 minutes!

5. Do you wear makeup everyday?

I try not to. When i’m in work everyday I wear a light amount – I try to just stick to foundation, concealer, bronzer and mascara. I don’t wear any makeup at all if i’m staying in the house all day.

6.What is your clothing style like?

I’d say if anything it’s actually quite dull. I love fashion but I only make a real effort if i’m going somewhere nice. Otherwise my standard outfit is a pair of patterned leggings, a long plain top and a leather jacket with healed boots (or Uggs, they’re so comfy!).

7.What is your favourite makeup brand?

MAC Cosmetics followed closely by Makeup Geek and Clinique. I love the range of products that MAC have and If there were a Makeup Geek in the UK, i’d be there everyday.

8.How about least favourite?

Probably one that is very cheap and the products aren’t great like Collection 2000. I think all makeup brands have a couple of amazing products though.

9.When did you start wearing makeup, and what did you wear?

When I was about 13 and all I would wear was black liner on my lower waterline – what a disaster! Then I discovered powder and didn’t bother matching my shade in the shop…hello orange line.

10.How old are you?

I’m 22 years old!


Random facts about me:

1. I never dyed my hair until recently but I only had a few dip dye highlights done.

2. Starting a blog is the best thing that I have ever done.

3. I have never painted my finger nails.

4. Winter is my favourite season.

5. Travelling is my favourite hobby outside of blogging.

6. I have very detailed dreams.

7. I take barely any time at all to get ready in the mornings.

8. I live for the nighttime.

9. I graduate from my Computing degree 1 month today!

10. I never want to live anywhere outside of England.

    I love these! I remember the days of not matching your foundation and that was pretty horrific thinking back haha. Blue eyeshadow was a bad one too

    1. Haha I know! Oh dear orange foundation and blue eyeshadow and braces.. We’ve all been there!

    1. Thank you!! I think it’s good to let your skin breathe as much as possible 🙂 You have to try makeup geek shadows! I would say they’re even worth the £20 postage from America to the UK for me haha! Where abouts are you from? Thanks for the lovely comment as always xxxxx
