The ‘Boyfriend explains what makeup is’ Tag.

I love a good makeup tag, and I also love my significant other so… lets put them together, yeah?

I saw Sarah from PastelSparkles do this tag with her boyfriend and it was just so great to read. I recommend you checking it out. Click here.

Kris has a pretty good knowledge of what products are and what goes where, he just lacks a bit of execution. Shoutout to him for helping me. To find out what he gets up to, Click here.

So here it is! I think he did quite well and I hope you like this fun little post!

BB Cream: BB Cream? For dry skin? Maybe? Most creams are.. Vitamin B?

Primer: … … … uhh… I don’t know if its before or after foundation… maybe ‘degreaser’. Or… to make foundation go on good.

Foundation: OH! That’s like the base coat!

Concealer: For hiding,… your blemishes..

Powder: Just general? Does it have a more specific name?
Like what? I don’t know. Surely theres more than one kind of powder.
What kinds of powder are there:? Baby powder? Do I Use it?.. no…

Brow Gel: I guess its like hair gel, for your eyebrows.

Eyeshadow: For colouring your eyelids.. Makes your eyes pop..?

Eyeliner: Outlines your eye. Via the eyelid..

Mascara: Makes your lashes longer and or straighter…

Corrector: I assume its not like white out… maybe for uneven skin? Texture? Or not…

Contour: Contour is for cheek definition.

Blusher: To make it look like you’re embarrassed. To make your cheeks look like they have life in them.

Highlight: It’s the opposite of contour, so it goes.. on the cheek bones?

Bronzer: I know it goes on the cheeks, but I don’t know why people do it, I don’t know if it has a function or purpose, like… I’ve only seen it on dragqueens… You don’t wear it do you? *hides under blanket*

Baking: Like, how we’re making dinner right now? To blow dry your face, do dry the makeup?

Strobing: Is that when you bash your face with the sponge?

Setting Spray: Is that like hair gel for your face? Wait… you use it to set.. your face? Is that even a thing?

Lip Liner: Its like eyeliner but for your lips.

He did pretty well, I have to admit. Although his answer for strobing was far from correct, and for the record, he’s referring to when I use a sponge to blend in foundation. /sigh.

Thank you so much for reading, and don’t forget:

My Makeup Story – Tag.

Gather round lovelies, its story time! I’ve been seeing this tag go around the bloggy world and I thought I might hop on board and do it. Super babes Sarah from PastelSparkles and Zoe from Zoesbeautyescape have done it and I want to be apart of the cool crowd and do it too! So, lets get to it!

If you want to do this tag, too, I’ll leave the questions (un answered) at the bottom of the post for you to copy and paste)

1. When did you first start getting into make up?

Like most, I’d always had an interest in it. I’d sit and ogle my mums collection. Then my older sister and I would steal it and play ‘dress ups’ to a certain degree. It wasn’t until I was maybe 14/15 that I started to wear it out of the house. I remember my sister helping me with eyeshadow before school on some days. Like many of you, I got into eyeliner early, I’d line my eyes like there was no tomorrow. I would use makeup as self expression, I wore blue and pink mascara (at the same time) to school. I was the weird outspoken but kinda shy arty kid. From there I’d always been into it.

2. What was the first make up you bought?

Probably foundation. I figured out early on that a good foundation is the key to a good face of makeup. I could use any old eyeshadows and make them work, but if the foundation wasn’t up to scratch then the whole thing went down hill.

3. What is the newest/oldest items in your collection?

Oldest: Probably a body shop bronzer.
I don’t know why I even own it, I’m not tanned at all. Its just sitting in my collection hardly used. Its so pretty though.

Newest: Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette. I only bought it last week along with some Too Faced goodies. ❤ Mecca.

4. Who is your celebrity make up idol?

Its tricky because celebrities tend to never wear the same makeup twice, ya know? But people who I always admire the makeup of – Taylor Swift – Can rock a red lip like no other, Mila Kunis – Queen of resting bitch face and a sharp smokey eye, Nina Dobrev – a goddess.

5. Who is your favourite YouTube guru?

For looks: Jaclyn Hill, Kathleen Lights, Tati, RachhLoves, (probably more but I can’t think of them)
For Reviews: Tati, RachhLoves, Julia Graf (probably more) I trust the opinions of these three ladies. They’re always to the point and actually know what they’re talking about without being dismissive or rude and have totally different styles of filming so its never boring!

6. What is a look/trend that you wish you could pull off?

Bright lipstick. I don’t know if its a confidence thing or if it just doesn’t suit my skin tone, but I just can’t wear it/don’t wear it often. I have no problems with dark lippy, blue, black, brown, green anything ‘weird’ like that. But bright lips is something I wish I had confidence in.

7. Any make up disasters?

Always. Too much bronzer, not filling in my eyebrows until I was 21! TWENTY ONE, PEOPLE! leaving the house without lipstick (concealer lips – yuck). Blue eyeshadow, rose pink cheeks and no eyeliner. Oh man, there’s too many.

8. What’s your favourite make up brand?

I don’t have just one brand. I love Australis and Face of Australia, Tarte, Urban Decay, Stila…

9. What is your favourite make up tip/trick that you wish you knew sooner?

How to line hooded eyes. Ugh. Such a life changer.

10. Which 5 products could you not live without?

Chi Chi brow pomade
Stila – eyes are the window – soul palette
Liquid Liner – Maybelline Hyper sharp/ Bourjois 16h liner
Mascara – Essence I ❤ extreme, Too Faced – better than sex
Foundation – L’Oreal True Match Lumi

And there we have it, my little makeup story. I’d love to see your responses, the questions are down below, or you could even answer some in the comments.
