Beauty Blogger of the Month Award

6:39:00 PM

Yay! I feel so appreciated when Anna of Lots of Girl Stuff nominated me to receive this award or tag (whatever you want to call it). I enjoy doing this sort of thing (Fun Tags as I call them). Since, it is one way for you, my readers to get to know me a bit more.

As a receiver of this award, I am tasked to answer seven beauty related questions. (which I will gladly answer with all honesty)

So here are the beauty related questions:

1. Where does your makeup inspiration come from?
I get my makeup inspiration from a lot of sources but it's usually from Instagram, Pinterest or Fashion Magazines. There are also times when I watch movies, I stare at an actress's face and observe how her makeup was done. The way I apply makeup is mostly inspired by the techniques of Lisa Eldrige, Rae Morris and Robert Jones.

2. What are 3 of your makeup Holy Grail products you cannot live without?
First is the Mac Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, next would be The Face Shop Style My Eyebrow brow pencil in shade #3 (though I love the Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade in Dark Brown, the pencil is more practical in my opinion) and lastly, a tinted lip balm. I'm currently loving the Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb and Alba Botanica Terra Tints.

3. What is your makeup signature look which you have on most of the time?
My go to everyday look, is dewy skin, well-groomed brows, any hydrating lipstick and a little bit of mascara. I skip blush and contouring most of time especially if I'm running late. I only wear eyeshadow and eyeliner on days where I have a lot of time on my hands.

4. Let us know your favorite makeup brands?
I use random stuff from different beauty brands, mostly US Drugstore brands. But If I have to choose it would be Mary Kay, MAC, The Balm and The Face Shop.

5. Your ultimate makeup pet peeve?
It's crooked brows! I honestly feel sorry for those women who don't know how to groom they're brows. I believe that brows frames the face. There are even times, when I actually can't hold it any longer, I approach the girl (if it's someone I know) and ask her if I can fix her brows for her. LOL

6. You’ve heard about all the hype on this makeup item, bought it, tried it and don’t understand what all the fuss is about…Name that product!
It would have to be the Collection Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner. I bought it coz I've read a lot of great reviews about it. Yes, the product worked like a charm but only for a very short period of time, since the gel liner in the pot already started to dry out after just a few weeks of usage. 

7. Concealer OR foundation ONLY for the rest of your life. Choose one and tell us the reason!
I'm honestly a powder foundation kind of gal, so I would have to choose foundation. Liquid foundation can also double up as a concealer so Foundation is definitely a win win product of choice!

As part of rules of this award, I will be nominating 7 other awesome beauty bloggers. I would like to nominate the following:
Shayne of Queen of All You See
Tellie of Beauty by Tellie
Vanessa of Citron and Guavaberry
Jaye of Bed in The Kitchen
Genzel of Genzel Kisses
Khymm of Miss Shopcoholic
MyMaria of Basta Igat Sikat

A million thanks to Cecilia's Corner for creating this award. I honestly believe that every beauty blogger in blogsphere deserves a pat on the back. Please visit her page for the complete rules of this award.
Until next time.

    And it's really sad when we get something because everyone is raving about it and end up disappointed - I've been there too.
    Take care*

  2. i lold at your pet peeve back story haha. you'll probably cry if you see my friend's eyebrows. she completely shaved them all and had her brows tattooed permanently instead :(
    btw i also get inspiration from movies, my laptop is full of screenshots of diff movie makeup looks :)
    congrats on your award and thank you thank you for including me! <3

  3. Aw thanks for the tag :) These awards are so fun and I usually feel like doing them in video so I can show more of my personality! Pero wala. Taong Tabon. *sigh*

  4. Thanks for tagging me! UHM, CAN YOU COME OVER AND FIX MY BROWS TOO, PLS??? I picked up the DipBrow pomade a few months back, and though it is nice, I don't use it too often. (Which is stupid, because one of my goals this summer was to work on my ~brow game~)
    Pft, you can easily pick up a tube of concealer and sheer it out with a BB/moisturizer to make a foundation out of it ;)

  5. I just read this today and I'm glad you did the tag. :)
    Oh my God, the eyebrows talaga. Once you notice it, it's all you ever see. Hahaha.

  6. Thank you so much sis for tagging me! :) You're one of the awesomest blogger I know too! I will do this hopefully next week. I feel the same for the eyebrows. I really want to approach the girl too if it's really not nice (her eyebrows). :D
