In August, fellow nail polish fan Mirror the Love nominated me for a Beauty Blogger Award! She’s based in Ireland and her blog is focused on cruelty-free and eco-friendly products. Her writing is really wonderful and she covers a range of beauty and lifestyle topics. Please visit her blog if you haven’t already!
I’m really flattered and delighted to answer her 10 questions today.
Mirror the Love’s Questions
Any blogging regrets?
Going on “hiatus” for several years is the big one.
Biggest beauty trend regret?
I have more of a tendency to not follow beauty trends, so it’s probably more like a regret that I didn’t follow one of the good ones!
One product you think everyone should have?
The perfect moisturizer for your skin type.
If you were creating your own beauty line, what would you call it?
I’m boring/narcissistic: fivezero.
Have you ever had a beauty “disaster” while doing someone else’s make-up?
Not really. Smudging nail polish, maybe?
Bold eyes, bold lips or both?
Lips, most of the time.
What has been your biggest life lesson so far? (taken from a question asked to me!)
It’s OK to ask if you don’t know or don’t understand something. It’s just stupid how long it took me to get this.
Favourite music video make-up?
I’m not much for music videos, but I’ve always liked English singer/songwriter/model Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s album covers. Helps that she’s stunning, of course!
What is your favourite make-up remover?
Honestly, I just get whatever’s on sale. It needs to remove waterproof mascara—that’s all. I’m currently on a bottle of Marcelle’s. I’ve had it so long that either they don’t make it anymore, or they changed the packaging, because mine looks a bit different! It always takes me a long while to get through makeup remover, since I also try to use up the GWPs of Lancôme Bi-Facil and Clinique Take the Day Off.
What is one product you just can’t get the hang of? Or if that’s not applicable, that you cannot stand to use?
Bronzer. It scares me!
