-How about concealer?
ELF tone correcting concealer

-Do you know your undertone color?
Something neutral

-What do you think of fake eyelashes?
Love them when they look really good. I've only worn them once, but loved it.

-Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
I recently got rid of all my old mascara and everything is new now!

-What brand of mascara do you use?
Maybelline Great Lash, Covergirl LashBlast,

-Sephora or MAC?

I gotta go with Sephora because of the variety of products

-Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
No, but I have nothing against Mac

-What makeup tools do you use in make up application?

Sonia Kashuk sponges, ELF natural mineral brushes, my fingers

-Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
ELF eyelid and eyeshadow primer

-For the face?
Mineral infused face primer

-What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I just love blue eyeshadow--no favorite palette yet

-Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Sometimes I use pencil on the top and bottom, but now I'm using liquid on top and pencil on the bottom. Pencil works so much better than liquid on the bottom, in my opinion.

-How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?

I don't

-What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
No thoughts. I know what I need to know about makeup for myself, but I am definitely learning a lot more (for the general audience) from your blogs.

-Do you use mineral makeup?
I own mineral makeup but I haven't used it yet.

-What is your favorite lipstick?
Don't hate me, but I'm not into lipstick for myself. I think lipstick is good for making lips look fuller, and I'm pretty set in that area ;)

-How about lipgloss?
Of course. I use ELF therapeutic conditioning balm as a base, then chapstick and ELF super glossy lipshine to finish

-What is your favorite blush to use?
Looking into a mineral blush, actually

No, I actually get 90% of my makeup from Target, Sephora & ELF

-Do you like drugstore makeup?
Yes, I don't have a problem with drugstore brands

-Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
Never been to a CCO

-Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
Yes, there is always so much to learn! :)

-Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
No, not really. I take time with the liquid liner.

-Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Let's see: crazy-filled eyebrows, overdone eyeshadows, black lip liner.

-Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
Love neutral tones, but nicely done colorful eyes always look great.

-Which celebrity always has great make up?

Paula Patton, Jennifer Lopez (her clothes may not always work, but her makeup is usually flawless)

-How many times do you wash your face daily?
Once before work, once before bed

-What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)
I have a combo because parts around my nose are dry while other parts oily; using a Neutrogena daily scrub to exfoliate

-What is your current facial wash?
Actually I'm using Proactiv right now (for the first time)

-Do you exfoliate?
Yes, even though I have a daily scrub, I use it about 4 times a week as not to over-exfoliate

-What brand do you use?
Aveeno Clear Complexion daily scrub or Neutrogena Daily Scrub

-What moisturizer do you use?
Proactiv green tea moisturizer

-Do you have freckles?

-Do you use eye cream?
I use concealer

-Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Yes, it sucks.

-Did you ever have to use Proactiv?
It's funny because I never used it in high school or college, but I got it before my wedding to see how well it works

-If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?

-Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
I do it quite often actually--except on the weekends.

-Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Yeah because I never really felt like I had to wear makeup to look good. Now I wear it because it's fun and my husband says I look like a doll with it on, which is funny.

-In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?

I know a lot of people like MAC, but I'll keep you guessing...

-What do you think of Makeup?
I'm starting to really enjoy the details of makeup so I'm always open to learning more and more. I don't think people should wear it every day because I don't want girls to feel like they need it to leave the house. But I want them to know how to use it and to really take advantage of what makes it awesome!

I tag everyone who comments on this post to take this makeup/skincare questionnaire. I'd like to know what your makeup skills are like!



  1. ooooh great post, lovely to have an insight into all your beauty tips!
    lots of love

  2. Makeup.. hmm .. LOVE IT lol.. its like the final detail to an outfit... I'm with you though on the lipstick thing, seldom and i mean i think twice have i ever worn lipstick.

    Anyways.. base under eyshadow is great they have primer but i just use my concealer works just as good, keeps it on longer, especially when i intend to go dancing etc.

    eyeliner and me are unseparable, i do leave the house plenty with out makeup, but when i'm in a hurry its a little eyeliner,mascara, and lipgloss and we are set!

    By the way your make up looked lovely at your wedding!

  3. I loved reading the surveys
    and thank you for letting me know about the jewelry at f21!
    i'll have to check out the website again to see what's new. :]
    i started to use some blush within the last like month. just on like the apples of my cheeks after i use like a bronzer/darker shadow on the hallows of my check. It's pretty!

  4. Thanks for the comment on my blog ^__^

    Thanks for this questionnaire, it's great to know more about you :)
    I sometimes poke my eye with an eyeliner pencil. :P

    congratulations on your wedding by the way :)

  5. I'm glad you did this tag, it's so fun to read!

  6. great tag! never seen tag like this :)

  8. love this post thanks for sharing your tips. im not so good with makeup tend to just wear a tinted moisturiser and mascara really... xx

  9. Oh what a great tag!!
    I loved to read that about you :)
    I don't know some of your facial products, I guess that's normal :)
    But I'm also a fan of ELF!!!
    I am following this tag on my blog, thank you, but in portuguese :D
    I don't write in english, sorry :X

    Have a lovely day!
    ♥ xxx

  10. thanks ♥
    your site looks gorgeous now!

  11. i love true match! as far as drug store products go, its def a good one!

    I am new to blogspot and im following you!

  12. interesting and inspiring post, cheryl. love how you explained things. you seem really good at makeup, and agree. jennifer lopez's makeups are always flawless :)

    p.s. can't agree more. rzeznik is just so hot. thanks for the sweet comment in my blog m'dear :)

  13. ohh I already did it..
    I have a L'OREAL foundation too, very good:)

  14. Great answers :) I prefer Sephora over Mac too. haha, if I filled this out, most of the answers would be blank because I hardly use makeup lol.

  15. how is proactive working for you?i started using it in January and it does not do much for me....bu then, i have been inconsistent with it

  16. I didn't know that brand.. maybe we dont having in Spain. For skin care I am using Kiehls right now. and I like it! :)


  17. when it comes to foundation,powder stuff like this, i have no clue, i have to go to a counter and ask what is my color hahhah
    im so useless when it comes tomakeup!

  18. To find out anything about skintone/undertone/what colors look good on your face without having the expensiveness of buying and trying lots of products, go to a local art school. If they are worth their salt, they have classes that teach you everything there is to know about color and how to use it.

    Also, mineral make-up is amazing. I own Bare Minerals and it feels like I am not wearing any make-up at all. It is weightless and flawless! Plus, it is super easy to use. I was shown at Sephora how to use it by one of their staff.

    I think this is going to be my next article! Thanks for the much needed inspiration!

  19. i agree jlo always looks flawless :)

  20. okay, i'll post a shoplog next week or later. I'm still thinking about how to do that ;)
    like the post ♥


♥ Thank you all for leaving your comments! ♥ Remember to find inspiration in everything! ♥
