best beauty gift: my husband likes to pick lipsticks for me when we go shopping-he picked my first rouge d’armani (400) and tom ford (crimson noir). i love them both-the shades and the formulas…now i have lots more of each:)
current wish list: i have bought WAY too much lately…still on the search for the ever elusive foundation in the correct shade and formula, so if i had to make a wish list i would say cle de peau foundation and eyeshadows, and some chikohodo or hakuhodo brushes, but honestly, i need neither and will probably be on a very low to no-buy for awhile.
advice: wear whatever you like, what every makes you feel happy-don’t worry about what other people say or what you are “supposed” to wear. also, wear sunscreen every day!!!!!!

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool

Best beauty tip you’d pass on to a friend? Wear what you like and watch youtube videos to learn new techniques/how to apply products.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC10

Current top three products on your wish list? Coastal Scents Revealed palette, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light, and Nyx Illuminator in Ritualistic (or another inexpensive dupe of NARS Albatross, to see how the look suits me), along with a couple other Nyx lip products. I think the last is tied with additional Real Techniques and Eco Tools brushes.
Best beauty tip you’d pass on to a friend? I’m not at all a beauty maven, so I will just write: Sunscreen. Sunscreen a thousand times. I would venture far more people ultimately regret not wearing sunscreen than the other way around.

Merry Whatever! 😛

– Your skin tone/coloring: Extremely Pale, more cool toned in some areas, more neutral in others, changes throughout year. As far as a color to compare: Like Um.. MAC NW 15 would be me w/tan.

– Best beauty gift you’ve received?: Shit. I’ve been so surprised by many unexpected beauty gifts throughout my life! Perhaps the ones I never ever dreamed I’d see.. ? Memorable moments.. Yeah, I can’t answer with specifics. BUT, this year I’m favoriting the gift of a Foreo Luna and the Shu a Uemura Shupette Ultim8 oil! 😀

– Current top three products on your wish list? Top 3? What is this? Top THREE? Top 3 skincare, makeup, lusts, what is this THREE nonsense? Sad wishlist. 🙁 Ok! I will play along. *Rolls eyes* NUDE Skincare products, Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Glow, Um yeah, way too difficult, I pass! A generous gift card for beauty products? How about that for a third? 😀 *pats self on back*

– Best beauty tip you’d pass on to a friend?: Depends on the friend. I’m More inclined to pass messages along to the youth. But to a friend I’d recommend not watching YouTube and believing that there’s a specific method to apply things. Find how your face responds where you put things, but overall, take extensive care of the skin first and foremost and only if you had to choose. A flawless face is more beautiful than a face with flawless makeup. HYDRATE. Don’t be swayed by propaganda, go with what your instincts feel, and create your own masterpiece. Never make excuses for it, like if you’ve already been wearing something that becomes trendy, big deal!? No need to make an excuse for what you like! Everything recycles and is all interconnected to ever revolution within beauty. Also: Don’t go fake baking to make your skin look flawless, you’ll pay for it later! Just keep it simple. Silence the mind, let your heart teach your hands to follow your gut and go! Anything goes!
And that’s about all I have to say about that.

Skin coloring: nw15
*I have never recieved make up as a gift*
Wish list: lipstick queen bete noir in sheer, Charlotte tilbury filmstar bronze and glow, pixi cheek gel in flushed
beauty advice: a lot of people have already commented on skincare so i’ll say remember to be kind to yourself and remember that make up is supposed to be fun. Don’t spend too much time squinting into a mirror and looking for perfection.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC50
Best beauty gift you’ve received? Sephora Giftcards
Current top three products on your wish list? MUFE Pro Finish Foundation, MUFE Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick N50, a new China Glaze nail polish
Best beauty tip you’d pass on to a friend? Take care of your skin! You’ll feel more confident using make up to enhance your natural features versus using it to hide what you don’t like about yourself.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fairest neutral. Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation in 001.

Best beauty gift you’ve received? It would have to be a little Clarins skincare set. My brother got me it for Christmas some years ago and I liked some if the products so much that I purchased full sizes of them and even now the lip balm is still my favourite one. They’ve discontinued it though so I bought back ups off eBay.

Current top three products on your wish list? That’s a hard one! I’m forever updating the list of stuff I would like to get. The main one at the moment is the limited edition eyeshadow quad from Suqqu in EX-22 Yukiichigo. It’s just gorgeous! I’d have to pay a good £95 or so to get my hands on it at the moment so for now I can only admire from afar. As for the other two, I’d have to go with a new tube of the Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation in 001 because my current one is nearly done and the limited edition MAC Smoke and Diamonds eyeshadow from years back because I have mine to my Mum since she liked it and she dropped it, broke it and binned it! Again, I could pay £30 to get it but I think that’s just a tad much. Anyone out there got a spare I could buy? 😛

Best beauty tip you’d pass on to a friend? Experiment and have fun with makeup. So many people I know stick to the same look day in day out. It washes off so why not try something different? I push my Mum to try out new things and more often than not she loves the outcome. Although, can I also add ‘less is more’ to my answer?

So those are my answers. I feel pretty greedy admitting to wanting so many things when I should be happy with what I already have but there you go. :/

Fair with yellow undertones
Limecrime velvetines
Makeup forever hd foundation, bliss fatgirl slim cream, and too faced semi sweet chocolate palette
Stay clear of contacts too different from your natural eye color

Your skin tone/coloring: NC50ish

Best beauty gift you’ve received?

I usually buy my own makeup lol. But my brother bought me a really cute leopard print makeup bag one year that I still use today every time I travel. I love that thing!

Current top three products on your wish list?

Like 3 of the Tom Ford Boys lipsticks, Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette and the Sephora Color of the Year cheek trio

Beauty oils are your friend. Even if you have oily skin. Once you find the right one it’ll change your life lol

– Best beauty tip you’d pass on to a friend? Try to only spend your money on products that leave you thinking “woaw” when you put them on (whether that be makeup, skin or hair care products etc). They are out there, so pass on the mediocre ones!

Your skin tone/coloring: light warm

4. If you like it wear it! Don’t worry about if other ppl will like it. Make up is about you.

Best beauty gift you’ve received? Sounds silly, but a bottle of drugstore nail polish. I was down with, erm, “women’s troubles,” so my husband ran to the drugstore for a heating pad. While there he remembered that I’d once (once!) mentioned wanting to try a specific shade of polish, so he visited two more drugstores trying to find me a bottle. He returned triumphant and I was so touched by the sweet surprise!
Current top three products on your wish list? Ha–I’m actually fighting the devil on my shoulder urging me to buy it ALL (even though I have more than I could ever need). I guess I would really like the Hourglass blush palette, an Hourglass finishing powder OR Guerlain meteorites, and the current OCC Pro’s Pick set.
Best beauty tip you’d pass on to a friend? I have two: 1. Wear what makes you happy–if you love your lime green shadow, rock it! (but look up application tips first) 2. Be nice to your skin! Protect it from the sun. Clean it. Moisturize it. Use gentle exfoliants. And in the long run, dermatologists are cheaper than gimmicky high-end skin products. 😉

Top three products: hourglass blush, Anastasia Brow Pomade, Tweezerman tweezers
Beauty tip: always double cleanse!

Best beauty gift you’ve received? My bff got me some Sephora matte lip lustres that are AMAZING. I haven’t stopped wearing them! My mom gifted me some Tom Ford Lips and Boys which I’m stoked about, and the boyfriend actually got me some of Melt’s lipsticks before they sold out! 😀

Current top three products on your wish list? Hmmmm…. I’m not sure. There’s always something. Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick, Guerlain Pressed Meteorites Powder, and some backup MAC holy grail brushes (239, 217).

Best beauty tip you’d pass on to a friend? Prep. Skin will only look as good as your prepping routine. Cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, prime. It will make SUCH a huge difference in the way your makeup goes on and looks!
