Ok, so I decided to do this because I wanted to do a makeup themed post and I had no idea what to do because I mainly just wanted to say…
I’m an al0haglitz promoter 😀 I talked about them in my beauty routine back in July and I’m finally a promoter and I’m quaking sksk I’ve wanted to promote for them for months.
https://al0haglitz.tictail.com (they only ship to the UK but its worth checking them out because you can get their eyeshadows for £0.90/each with my code SAMSGLITZ.
Anyway let’s go to the actual content because y’all know I’m very deprived of that 🙂
Do you remember your first makeup item?
YES! It was a bright red lipstick for like £2 from this brand called ‘natural collection’. It’s a makeup brand that only uses natural ingredients (they’re not that good, to be honest, but they have good blush and lipgloss) and it was really bad and smelled rank
Describe your perfect mascara
I think my perfect mascara would make my lashes look very curly and long, but also making them thick and clump-free. Like a mascara that looks like natural falsies. I think the closest I’ve found is the too faced BTS mascara, essence lash princess mascara (the green tube) and the benefit roller lash.
What kind of coverage do you prefer in a foundation?
Lately, I’ve been digging a light/medium coverage but in general probably a medium/full coverage.
Favourite high-end brand?
Urban Decay or Clarins (they do bomb lip oils)
What cosmetic brands have you wanted to try but haven’t?
Laura Mercier, Tarte and others but I can’t remember them atm
Favourite drugstore brand?
Probably makeup revolution, Maybelline or Rimmel
Do you wear fake eyelashes?
Noo, my eyelashes feel disgusting after I wear them and I suck at putting them on
Is there any kind of makeup you don’t leave the house without?
LIP OIL. Even when I go to school without makeup, I still slap some lip oil on because it’s amazing. My fav formula is the Clarins lip oil and I *accidentally* might have bought all 9 shades
What is your most cherished makeup product?
Either my lip oil collection or my urban decay naked palette (the original but my whole collection is close to my heart)
How often do you shop for makeup?
Probably at least once a week but I don’t always buy stuff
Do you have a ‘beauty budget’?
Pretty much my allowance (£40/month) but I’m known to overstep it a lot
Do you utilise coupons/rewards etc?
HECK yeah. Actually, not really because I don’t have a boots or Superdrug card but when they do 3 for 2 deals or free gifts then I take advantage of that
What type of product do you buy the most of?
Probably foundation, lip products or eyeshadows
Is there a brand you can’t stand?
Probably Revlon because their products are way too overpriced and they aren’t very good quality/don’t work for me
Do you avoid certain products in makeup?
Only lanolin because I’m allergic to it but that’s more skincare
Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup?
Probably Boots because they have NYX and self-serve machines
Do you like trying new skincare products?
Yes! My skincare routine changes all the time but my skin’s actually not too bad; it just gets dry sometimes but I rub vaseline all over it every night so it doesn’t actually matter
Favourite bath and body brand?
Bath and body works, but for my UK folks, probably vaseline lotions and original source body wash
If you could only buy from one brand, what would it be?
Urban Decay, because all their products (that I have) have been insane and I feel like they’re pretty unproblematic and have rave reviews on all of their products
What brand do you think has the best packaging?
Probably either Urban Decay or Rimmel because I love their powder packaging (like on the stay matte powder) but the only problem is that it rubs off quickly
Do you belong to any online makeup communities?
I’m an al0haglitz promoter (SAMSGLITZ for ££ off (I’ll stop now)) but that’s pretty much it
5 favourite beauty gurus?
Jeffree Star, Nikkie Tutorials, James Charles, John Maclean and Tati (I used to like Jackie Aina but I got bored of her and lost respect for her anyway)
Do you like multifunctional products (eg. lip/cheeck tints)
God no, because most of the time, the product isn’t even good at either task
Are you clumsy at putting on makeup?
I think I used to be but now I mastered the proper instagram foundation application (putting the pump directly on the face) and now I’m like a racecar because I take like 10 minutes to do my makeup now lol
Do you use eyeshadow primer?
Most of the time I use concealer, but I use Urban Decay Primer Potion when I remember
How many hair products do you use typically?
I brush my hair and (sometimes) use hairspray if I do a bun because my hair is notorious for falling out
What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
Foundation, because that’s how I learnt
Do you ever consider makeup classes?
No, because I don’t want to go into cosmetology and can learn plenty for free online
What do you love about makeup?
I think it makes me more confident, because I can change my features to something I feel comfortable in (because there are several features of mine that I definitely want to hide), and it’s also just a fun, creative, easy art that is a good outlet of mine
Sorry I was so quick but my entire body hurts and I really need to go to bed 🙂
