30 Day Makeup Challenge


I figured this one would be a good one to do because although I enjoy makeup some, I really don't know a ton about makeup and usually do the same thing every day, so for all you girls who feel inferior after seeing makeup-savvy girls doing the challenge, this one's for you ;) prepare to laugh at my ignorance.

1) When did you start putting on makeup?
I wore lip gloss for a while before doing actual makeup, but as far as actual makeup, I started wearing it when I was 14. I wasn't a huge fan of makeup. At all.

2) How did you learn to put on makeup?
Well, my mom and I went to a makeup store and the lady put on some makeup and it looked good, but I was never able to replicate it... she used loose powder which is better for extremely acne-prone skin like mine, but I've never been able to get the same coverage the lady got... which is why I use liquid foundation now. Everything else is self-taught. 

3) Favorite brand?
I would have to say Mary Kay, mostly because my aunt works for them and on more than one occasion has given me shopping sprees on their website for a birthday/Christmas, etc. Almost everything I've gotten has been top quality, and their are certain products of theirs that I swear by.

4) Do you like wearing foundation? If so, what's your color and favorite?
Well, I hate that I have to put it on to get my skin to not be red and blotchy, but I guess I like the benefits. I'm literally the lightest color of any foundation. Usually, that's not even light enough. I'm THAT pale. Lately, I've been using the acne-fighting Neutrogena foundation, but I've also had success with the Covergirl one with the pump (I'm terrible at remembering the actual names of the products)

5) Favorite lipstick, lip gloss, and lip liner?
I honestly HATE lipstick and lip liner, and don't own any or use any. Generally, if I put anything on my lips, it's chapstick. These are my 2 most used chapsticks. The top one is a cherrry and lemon one from Bath and Body Works, and the lower one is just cherry Carmex. I use both of them quite often.


6) Do you like/ wear fake lashes?
No. I think they look stupid and are pointless. 

7) Favorite eye shadow color?
It's a Mary Kay one. It's called Granite and basically, it's a pretty natural looking brownish with a little metallic/silvery thrown in. 
8) What's your favorite daytime look?
Well, if I had as much time as I wanted to do my makeup, I would apply foundation& concealer. Black eyeliner. Mascara. Eye shadow. Lip stuff. Yep, that's about it.

9) Picture of your makeup collection
Unfortunately, it's all scattered all over the place, so that won't really work. Some is still packed from school, some is here, some is in my bathroom, it's just everywhere.

10) Favorite makeup brush?
See, I just don't see the big importance of fancy makeup brushes... I just buy cheap ones. They get the job done.

11) Do you like wearing bronzer?
Ok, let's be real here. I don't even know how to apply that, where it goes, what it does, or what it even looks like. So what do you think?

12) Favorite mascara?
I use Covergirl. I use the one in the red tube. I don't even know what it's called. I just picked that one cause it's red and I like Covergirl.

13) Where do you keep your makeup?
I keep most of it in my bathroom, but while at school I have a little container I keep it all in. Usually it's all over the counter at home because I have an inability to put anything back where it belongs.

14) Favorite Youtube gurus?
I don't understand the girls who buy multiple makeup products all the time. How are you going to use all of that? I like Zoella, but I usually only watch her when she's doing a collab with some of my other favorite youtubers, like Alfie Deyes, Marcus Butler, and Sam Pepper. Zalfie 5EVAH!

15) Do you wear blush?
Sometimes, yes. It's not big on my priorities list, though.

16) Do you copy any celebrity looks?
Honestly, I have a problem with anyone trying to copy anyone. Whatever the reason. Be original!

17) Favorite makeup artist?
Uh... yeah... I don't have one. I guess Zoella.

18) What's your favorite nighttime look?
I think you're assuming that I go out at night. Yeah, that doesn't happen. Nope.

19) Favorite concealer?
I use Neutrogena's acne-fighting concealer

20) Favorite eyeshadow primer?
I don't use that. I don't really see a point, honestly...

21) Where do you buy your makeup?
Well, like I said, I get a lot from the Mary Kay website, but other than that, usually at Walmart or Target. I really don't go out of my way to get anything.

22) Favorite toner?
Again, I have no idea what this looks like, what it's used for, or where it goes. So I have no idea what my favorite toner is.

23) Favorite eye shadow palette and brush palette?
Well, most of the eye shadow I use is in a Mary Kay set thing that has multiple different eye shadows which I bought individually. So I guess it would have to be that? and I don't have a brush palette...

24) Which type of eye shadow do you like? 
Most of the ones I have are mineral/powder and shimmer. So there ya go.

25) Favorite eyeliner
Eyeliner is 100% my favorite beauty product and I swear by the Mary Kay black eyeliner. Seriously, I absolutely love it. It lasts all day perfectly, even with my oily, acne prone skin. It's the only eyeliner I'll use. That, and the steely colored Mary Kay one.

26) Do you wear makeup every day?
If I'm going somewhere, I almost always put on foundation because of my terribly broken-out face, but other than that, I may put on just eyeliner and be ready to go.

27) Favorite powder
I don't really have one. Never had good luck with powder.

28) Favorite makeup remover?
I just have some walmart makeup wipes. They're cheap and simple. And they work.

29) Do you like wearing liquid liner?
No. When I first started using eyeliner, I found it hard enough to use the regular pencil, let alone the liquid. I gave up and stuck with the pencil til I found the twist top Mary Kay one that I use now.

30) Picture of yourself with and without makeup?
So somehow I managed to find a decent picture of me without makeup... so there's not a big difference between the two. I really don't know how I managed to pull that off. Anyway, the one with straight hair and red bangs is with. Curly, all brown hair is without. I guess maybe 'cause it's older? Maybe I had less acne then?... No, that's not true. Idk.
