Liebster Award

image

Hello beauties! So I haven’t done one of these for a while, this is my 7th one! but they are always welcome. It’s lovely to get recognise for doing a great job, and to make this community we are building even stronger, while also giving the smaller blogs a push. The Liebster Award was created to recognize and/or discover new bloggers and welcome them to the blogosphere. I was nominated by Stuff Hannah Says. Go check out her blog. She has a great beauty & fashion blog. I was also nominated at the same time by Strange Made Me. She also has a beauty blog that you should defiantly check out.

I’ll start with Hannah’s post first because they have different rules.

Rules

1. A link to the blog you were nominated by, and a note to say thank you.
2. The award itself.
3. The answers to the questions given to you by the person you were nominated by.
4. Your list of 11 nominees (they must have less than 1000 followers on their blog).
5. A list of questions you would like your nominees to answer.
6. The list of rules for the award.

Questions

Who would be your ultimate dinner party guest?
I’d love to have dinner with Rivers Cuomo just because I think he’s such an interesting guy!

What would you like to achieve in the next 5 years?
Maybe own my own house.

Why should people continue to read your blog?
I still consider myself a bit of a newbie to be honest. I’ve been doing this since May this year and I’m still learning. I’m not the best at bigging myself up as you can tell, but I always try and do my best with my blog.

How would you change the world, if you had the power to do so?
The only thing I would do is make Wasps extinct. They are pointless and I hate them.

Beauty Blogger Of The Month Award!

image

Hello beauties! So I have been nominated for this three this month, so I thought I would combine the awards together (hope you don’t mind ladies!)  I was nominated by the lovely Abigail from Abigail Robyn Brown, Ashleigh from Beauty With Ashleigh and Beck from Beck In A Blog. Go check out their blogs, they are all amazing beauty bloggers with amazing content! Also please check out Cecilias Post for all the rules and comment that you have been nominated to enter the prize draw for a Benefits They’re Real Push Up Liner!

So here are the questions for this awards!

1. Where does your makeup inspiration come from?
When I was a kid my mom was my inspiration for my make up. Even before I could wear make up I was mooching through her make up bag pulling things out and probably being totally annoying! But as I grew up, I got alot of my inspiration from YouTube bloggers such as Zoella and magazines.

2. What are 3 of your makeup Holy Grail products you cannot live without?
I couldn’t live without my Max Factor All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation. It really suits my skin and love how it lasts so long. Has an amazing coverage which you can work up easily. Another thing I’ve recently discovered is Benefits POREfessional Primer. It fills my pores on my nose like no other primer I’ve tried. And last, but not least, Rimmel London Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder. I use a transparent powder just to set my make up and keep from getting shine. I love it, it’s so affordable and does the job.

3. What is your makeup signature look which you have on most of the time?
Everyone knows me with my cat eye flicks! I just look weird without them! Well, to me anyway..

4. Let us know your favorite makeup brands?
It has to be Max Factor. I see it as a luxury brand, with a affordable price tag! I find when I buy high end products I expect too much due to the price tag!

5. Your ultimate makeup pet peeve?
When people don’t blend there foundation. Especially around the jaw line, it’s not hard… No one wants to see an orange face and white neck (also when people have orange make up when they are pale… Or just orange make up in general!)

6. You’ve heard about all the hype on this makeup item, bought it, tried it and don’t understand what all the fuss is about…Name that product! 
I’ve read loads of good reviews on this product.. But I just don’t get it! This product for me is So Susan Cosmetics Concealer Quad. It’s so dry and hard to blend, I just don’t get how people can like it!

7. Concealer OR foundation ONLY for the rest of your life. Choose one and tell us the reason!
Probably foundation. I don’t have many problems with spots and dark circles under my eyes so I wouldn’t be too bothered if I didn’t have Concealer.

On to my 7 nominees! You should check out all there blogs too, I always enjoy reading them!

1. rachwat
2. stephndstuff
3. Kitty Approved Beauty
