MAKEUP TAG

26 Apr

I gave in to the tag from RareVanity. I am an avid reader of Ms. Gem’s blog and she is even one of the reasons why I started blogging. I read her post and thought that this was quite interesting… So without further ado, here are my answers:

SKINCARE

How many times do you wash your face daily?

On a regular basis, I wash my face twice daily though there are days when I wash it thrice because a) it’s sooo hot and b) I have to prepare for something.

What skin type do you have? (dry, oily. combo)

I have sensitive, oily and acneic skin. I breakout due to hormones (pms and menstruation days) and reaction to new products.

What is your current facial wash?

I alternate using Krave Cupine Aloepa Facial Wash (morning) and ZA facial wash (night).

Do you exfoliate?

I only exfoliate at night and not more than twice a week. I feel it’s better at night it’s as if I’m preparing my skin for its “renewal time”.

What brand do you use?

Depending on m my mood, I alternate using Human Nature’s Purifying Facial Scrub, Cure, and Olay regenerist megasonic.

What moisturizer do your use?

I collect moisturizers but currently I am using different moisturizers for the morning and at night. In the morning, I use Krave’s Moisture Visage then Celeteque Anti-aging moisturizer with SPF15. At night I use Krave’s Moisture Visage then ZA Collagen Moisturizer.

Do you have freckles?

I have none.

Do you use eye cream?

Yes! In the morning I use Olay Regenerist Eye Cream and Lash Serum. At night, I use Avon Anew Genics Eye Cream.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

Sadly, yes. I easily react to products with harsh ingredients so I always opt for those safe for sensitive skin.

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ? I wanted to but I haven’t used it yet.

TAG: This or That

21 Feb

I think this is one interesting TAG that I stumbled upon from my favorite Jen. Check out her blog too. If you want to know my answers, please continue reading.

MAKEUP:

  • blush or bronzer – I love blushes! I am not much into bronzers.
  • lip gloss or lipstick – Lipstick for me. I would have answered lip gloss if I were in my teenage years, but I think now that I am in my mid 20s, I go for lipstick. I like the creamy, moisturizing formulas.
  • eye liner or mascara – I want to choose both because they go hand in hand. But if I were to choose only one it has to be eye liner. I love lining my waterline with black eyeliner pencil to open my eyes. My go to eye makeup is really eyeliners now – gel or liquid eyeliner will do.
  • foundation or concealer – I’d definitely choose foundation. They even out the skin tone, conceals blemishes and easily applied. I have a hard time using concealers and I think they just sit on my skin.
  • neutral or color eye shadow – Neutral shadows for me. I used to love colored eye shadows but I think they are very hard to pair with your outfits and the look it gives will be for teenagers.
  • pressed or loose eye shadows – Pressed eye shadows definitely. Loose ones are a bit too messy to use.
  • brushes or sponges – I used to love sponges but when I discovered that brushes work better using different techniques and kinds, I go for brushes. They are also easier to clean than sponges. Sponges are disposable too but brushes can last you a long time.

NAILS:

  • Long or short – Short nails for me. I easily get broken nails when they are not clipped properly.
  • Acrylic or natural – Natural nails for me.
  • Brights or darks – Brights make nails appear vibrant and the hands look young.
  • Flower or no flower – No flower. I love seeing nail art but I just don’t like flowers on nails.

BODY:

  • perfume or body splash – I use both but I’ll go for body splash. Body splash for daily scents and perfumes only for special occasions.
  • lotion or body butter – I love moisturizers whatever its kind. I use lotions more often though so I guess its lotion I will choose.
  • body wash or soap – Body wash! I prefer using body wash because it really makes skin soft. I use soaps once in a while but only if it’s mild. I like Dove, Jergens, and Human Nature Cleansing Bar. I also used Sastid sulfur soap when I was pregnant because I had intolerable itchy rashes (a sign of my Gestational Diabetes Mellitus).
  • lush or other bath company – I haven’t tried any from Lush so I’ll be choosing other bath companies. I like St.Ives, Johnson & Johnsons, The Body Shop and Human Nature.

FASHION:

  • jeans or sweat pants – Jeans. I wear jeans most of the time. I rarely wear sweat pants.
  • long sleeve or short sleeve – It depends on the weather and the type of material used actually. But I guess I wear more short sleeve so short sleeve it is.
  • dresses or skirts – I have tons of skirts that I don’t wear anymore. I am more into dresses now.
  • stripes or plaid – Stripes! I just love how it looks on me.
  • flip flops or sandals – Flipflops are my go to footwear but on events/parties I wear sandals.
  • scarves or hats – I  am sooo in love with scarves and shawls. They are very useful! I use them for fashion, for breastfeeding in public, for making me feel warm, for impromptu pillow on my baby’s stroller, and the list goes on…
  • studs or dangly earrings – I don’t wear earrings now. My daughter always pulls it from my ears. On rare occasions, I just use studs.
  • necklaces or bracelets – I use bracelets more often because they add spice to any outfit. Necklaces are also pulled by my daughter. I have broken chains of necklaces because my daughter loves to play with them so I think I will let her grow first before wearing necklaces again.
  • heels or flats – I use flats more often because it is comfortable especially when I am looking after and playing with my daughter.
  • cowboy boots or riding boots – None. I like plain fashionable boots.
  • jacket or hoodie  – I like either of the two… but if there’s only one I think I like jackets !
  • forever 21 or charlotte russe – Forever 21 hands down!
  • abercombie or Hollister – I like Abercrombie because it is so wearable and comfortable.

HAIR:

  • curly or straight – I prefer straight hair. I think it is more manageable that way. But wavy hair is good enough for me.
  • bun or ponytail – Buns! I always pull my hair into a bun especially when I’m having a bad hair day.
  • bobby pins or butterfly clips – Bobby pins for me! Great for any hair style!
  • hair spray or gel – I don’t use any of this. Tee hee.
  • long or short – I prefer short hair but my hubby likes it long so I am growing it now. I used to have long hair but I cut it short when I was pregnant.
  • light or dark – Dark of course! I don’t think I will dye my hair light.
  • side sweep bangs or full bangs – Side sweep bangs! I am willing to try full bangs soon.
  • up or down – Down. Guys love seeing our hair down. I tie my hair on days when I have no time to style it.

RANDOM:

  • Rain or shine – Rain! I love it when the weather is cool. But please no typhoons or monsoons that hurt others. I just hate feeling sweaty and oily so I’ll give up shine.
  • Summer or winter – There is no winter here 🙂 Besides I love summer because it’s the perfect time for showing off some skin!!!
  • Fall or spring – Spring! Everything just looks so wonderful.
  • Chocolate or vanilla – Chocolates, definitely!!! The darker, the better! I don’t eat white chocolates…at all.

If you have a blog, please do the tag as well and link it back to me so I can read your answers. I enjoyed answering this, I hope you do too!

Have fun!
