Blogger Confessions: Beauty

Wednesday, June 24, 2015


I don't wear foundation...
...because...I just don't.  I never have.  I don't want to.  I don't feel like wearing it.

I use baby wipes to cleanse my face.
Yes this works, trust me.  I use the My Little Star wipes from Superdrug to cleanse my face and remove makeup before I go to bed.  It really works for my face and the wipes are really cheap.

I get so freaked out by bad nails.
I can't stand bad nails.  I hate them!  Seeing nails that are bitten, dirty, brittle and in general poor condition.  Yuck!  So disgusting!  Nails don't need to look perfect like you've just come from spending an hour with a manicurist, but they need to look decent at best.  Seeing badly maintained nails makes my stomach turn.

I am a nail polish addict.
I love wearing nail polish, and I have so many nail polishes!  More on that here.

I wear the same kinds of makeup.
I always wear mascara, eyeliner and lipgloss/lipstick.  And that's it.

I wear makeup because I want to, not because I feel as though I have to for anything/anyone.
More on that here.

I am not an airhead.
Contrary to ignorant beliefs, a woman wearing makeup or writing about makeup is not automatically ditzy.

I tend to write about beauty trends, products, news and releases...
...whenever I can.  I am not always in the loop!

I'm not a beauty expert in the slightest...
...but I get my beauty information from blogs, vlogs and magazines.

I don't always purchase beauty products...
...because I am not a big spender.

I don't purchase high-end beauty products...
...and I have never purchased high-end beauty products because I prefer 'drugstore' items.  They are much cheaper - better for my bank balance - and good value anyway.  You can get some really cool dupes in drugstores, like body butter dupes.

I don't have the best skin.
My skin can get really dry, but I have ways of dealing with that which you can read here and here.

I love perfume and body spray...
...and I can't leave the house without some sort of fragrance, just like I can't leave the house without deodorant.  I use body sprays by So...?, Impulse, Charlie or Superdrug.

I love purple lips!

I love beauty shops and halls.
I could spend hours and hours in them testing out make up shades and swatching products...but then I usually end up leaving buying nothing or buying one (inexpensive) product.

I love beauty freebies and samples!
...from beauty halls, beauty boxes and events.

I want to work in nails.
I'd love to work in the PR/Marketing department for a nail brand.  Or...I'd love to have my own nail line, but one can only dream.
