The Liebster Award

The day after I posted my second Liebster Award post, I noticed I had another comment on my Naked3 palette off Aurelie from aurelie-hispter nominating me for yet another Liebster Award. Thank you so much Aurelie! So, I thought I would just quickly answer her questions today.

1. If all your makeup was taken away but you could keep 3 things, what would they be?
A decent foundation (Rimmel Wake Me Up), a waterproof mascara and a blush (MUA Blush Perfection in Dolly)

2. Favourite fashion item...
Black jeans! Love these! They are so versatile; can go from day to night, and go with everything!

3. Favourite blush...
MUA's Blush Perfection in Dolly. This seems to really compliment my skintone, and adds a nice natural flush to the face. As it's a cream blush, it also adds a lovely dewy-ish finish on the face.

4. Favourite movie...
I really struggle when I get asked this question. I can never think of an answer. I don't think I have a particular favourite all-time movie; I go through phases of  watching movies all the time, and then I won't watch it for ages after. I am a big sucker for the good old romcom/girly films, but I do also like the action and gory horror films aswell. Sorry I couldn't give a more specific answer.

5. What/who inspired you to blog?
Well, this all started with Cassandra Bankson of DiamondsandHeels14, after watching her Acne Foundation Routine video, which gave me so much confidence, and then I got into watching more YouTubers, and then into the blogging world. Then one day, I plucked up the courage to create my own blog.

6. Leather jacket or fur jacket?
Leather jacket definitely! I've just recently brought one (faux-leather, though), and I've worn it everytime I go out now.

7. Tell us one makeup tip that changed your life.
Probably how to properly use colour-correcting concealers.

8.  Best advice you ever received from someone... (Does not have to be beauty related!)
Just to stop all your worrying. Life happens, it's nothing to be scared of. I am a big worrier (still am!) and worry over any small thing.

9. What is your favourite era in terms of beauty or fashion... you know like 50s, 60s etc.
I love the 1920s. It seems so elegant and classy. I love the makeup, the fashion and the hairstyles.

10. What is your staple party look - from beauty to fashion?
Probably something like straight leg black jeans, some sort of boot with a low heel, and then more of a fancy top, and a lightweight jacket. Makeup wise, I go for a more flawless looking base, with a slightly smokey eye, and nude lip.

11. If there was one thing you could buy (money being no object) what would it be?
Right now, would be some really good skincare pieces, e.g. Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Bobbi Brown Extreme Eye Repair Cream, Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief.

Thanks again Aurelie for nominating me!
