*The questions below are questions I asked for the beauty blogger award that have made their way back to me and I thought it would be fun for me to answer my own questions!
How many people have you told about your blog in real life?
A few people in my family (sister, cousin, etc) and some friends that like beauty-related blogs.
How many foundations do you own?
7 Foundations, 4 BB creams, 3 stick foundations, and 4 powder foundations
What’s your favourite eyeshadow colour?

How much time do you spend doing your makeup on a daily basis?
Everyday is different – it can take 15 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on the occasion.
What’s your favourite makeup brush?
A Lancome angled brush that came in a holiday kit, I use it for my bottom lash line or when I want to do a soft shadow liner on my top lashes.
When you go to a drugstore what brand do you look for first?
What was your first makeup item?
A double-ended cobalt blue and black eyeliner from Estee Lauder I think. I got it from my mom when I was in grade 6/7; I use to love using either side to line my water line.
Do you regularly or have ever self tanned?
I have self tanned a few times in the past using self tanners, but honestly I like my natural skin tone that never tans; I think it suits me the best.
How do you feel about overdrawn lips?
I like it – if it’s not obviously over-drawn.
Do you contour on a daily basis?
I do a very light contour with a cool-toned shade everyday.
