Tag | Seven Deadly Sins Of Beauty

Sunday, 29 September 2013

I love reading tag posts on other blogs, so I finally decided to have a go at one myself after finding the Seven Deadly Sins one on Of Beauty & Nothingness. I thought this would be a good one to try as it gives you a bit more insight into my makeup routine and what I like, or don't like, to use.
I want to tag everyone to do this tag really as I think it's such an interesting one to do, if you feel like doing this tag then please do and don't forget to leave a link in the comments so I can check out your answers!


1. Greed: What is your most expensive beauty item?

Probably my MAC Prep & Prime which I bought when I was in America last year. It's not actually that expensive but as most of the makeup that I use are drugstore products and under £20, it still puts it in as my most expensive. 

2. Wrath: What beauty item do you have a love/hate relationship with?

It's more of a 'love when it goes right, love how it's supposed to turn out'/'but I can never apply it right so I bloody hate the thing' relationship but I definitely have to go with liquid eyeliner for this. I love wearing it, I love how long it lasts, I love how it looks.. but only when I manage to apply it well, which isn't often. Exactly why I have a love/hate relationship with it.

3. Gluttony: What makeup brand is the biggest chunk of your makeup collection?

This is a tough one as I never really pay attention to brands, I just go with what I like best or what has had good reviews. But I probably purchase most items from Sleek, MUA or Natural Collection, Sleek for lipsticks and palettes, MUA for eyeshadows and Natural Collection for eyeliner and blushes.

4. Sloth: What product do you neglect to use due to laziness?

Primer definitely. A lot of the time when I'm getting ready I'm in a rush so I completely forget to use primer. I'll only really use it when I'm going out and spend more time on my makeup anyway. Plus I'm still trying to find a good one that isn't too expensive and does the job (recommendations please!).

5. Pride: Which beauty product gives you the most confidence? 

I'd have to say either foundation, mascara, or liquid eyeliner (when it goes right). Foundation obviously because it evens out my skin and makes it look flawless, mascara because I love having thick, dark eyelashes that really make my eyes stand out, and liquid eyeliner because when you have that perfect 60s cat eye going on, you really feel like you can accomplish anything... well I do anyway.

6. Lust: Which item is at the top of your beauty wish list? 

Since I read Zoellas post about her MAC custom eyeshadow palettes I've been seriously lusting over one of my own. I already know what shades I'd choose too, I'm thinking I may have to start one soon, just in time for my birthday and Christmas!

7. Envy: What makeup product do you think looks great on others but not yourself?

Coloured eyeshadows. I know it's more of a mental thing and if I tried them or had more confidence then I'd be able to pull them off, but I just cannot imagine myself with anything other than a neutral shade on my lids and I'm so envious of people who can go out with red or yellow or bright blue and look amazing. For example, grgctts who always looks unreal no matter what she has on! I especially love her look where she uses yellow eyeshadow to line under the eyes. So jealous.
