Makeup Diary Tag!

I found this little tag today over at www.beautyliciouslove.com and thought I might as well give it a go =]

If you read, consider yourself tagged! Leave me a link to your blog so I can read your answers too, I love reading these things, I'm so lame!

1. What time did you do your makeup today? Started about 7:05ish.

2. What’s the least expensive beauty item you used? Hmm, my MUFE Smokey Eyes Mascara was from a swap does that count? Everything else was MAC today, so pricey. Probably my Avon angled brush for gel liner, that I used to put on some powder eyeliner.

3. What was the biggest problem you needed to correct? Two words for you. DARK. CIRCLES. But I was lazy today and didn't use concealer, so I didn't correct it very well...

4. Did you apply false eyelashes? Nah, not for a craptastic Tuesday at work.

5. Did you do anything while applying make-up? No, I used to check emails or watch tv or something but it distracts me and means it takes longer so I have to get up earlier. I have my morning routine down to a solid 35 minutes, and I refuse to get up any earlier than I already do.

6. Biggest make-up mishap today? Probably the eyeshadow as liner. I tried to go lighter on the liner today, but my eyes don't look the same without dark eyeliner, I just looked more tired than usual.

7. Did you have a makeup inspiration in mind? Not really, I just opened my train case of "stuff I use most frequently" and my Hello Kitty palettes were still in there from the weekend, so I played.

8. What was the most time-consuming part of your makeup routine? Eyes. The rest of my face doesn't take long, but eyes are always the focal point.

9. What part of your routine is the most fun? Playing with new products, or hwen I have an idea in mind and it all comes together and actually looks decent!

10. What part of your make-up makes the biggest difference in the way you look? Eyeliner/Mascara. I have blonde lashes so I look weird without mascara, and because I've worn black liner everyday for the past x years, I don't look quite the same without it. I can get away with just those two products if I had to.

11. Neutral or colorful eyeshadow? Today was colourful. Paradisco with Romping, Yogurt, and Stately Black (all from MAC's Hello Kitty quads)

12. Liquid or mineral foundation? MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. My liquid foundation brushes are all dirty and I've been too lazy to wash. That's so bad isn't it?

13. Do you do your hair or make-up first? I do my makeup before anything else (aside from cleaning face/teeth of course)

14. Did you pack a make-up bag to take with you for the day? Not technically, but I have a makeup bag of "emergency supplies" in my handbag anyway.

15. When did you finish your make-up? Uhm 7:20ish I think or just before.
