  3. Describe your style? Hmm, my style differs depending on my mood. Sometimes I’ll throw on some leggings, a t shirt and just add a few dabs of foundation to my face and other times I’ll go all out with flawless make up and heels.
  4. Fave holiday destination? Disneyland!
  5. Do you have any pets? No 😦

Skye’s Questions

  1. What is the story behind your blog’s name? An insight into my life
  2. What is your favourite colour of choice for your everyday ‘out of the house’ clothing? Hmm well my handbags range from bright pink to bright green so to keep it neutral I’ll mainly wear something black
  3. Are you an online shopper or an in-store shopper? Why? In store. Don’t get me wrong I love online shopping but with so many sizing issues it can get annoying
  4. Which department you find yourself gravitate towards more; drugstore, high-end, designer, or luxurious brands? Why? These days I’m drawn to high end brands, they just look so pretty however I’m sure you can find similar products in drugstores but without the fancy name to accompany them.
  5. Are you a bag person or a shoes person? Why? Bags. No shoes. No bags. Ah this is a tough one – if I HAD to pick right now I’d say bags but only because for the past few days I’ve been wearing really pretty shoes which have killed my feet 😦
  6. Which one you go for the most, your eyeshadow drawer or your lipstick stand? Lipstick.
  7. Are you a sucker for blushers or rather a foundation/bb/cc/ee crazy person? Foundation. I find some blushers tooooo colourful
  8. Skincare-wise, which category would you rather splurge on, serums or moisturisers?Why? Moisturisers because these day my skin is so dry 😦
  9. Your favourite form of foundation; liquid, cream, stick, or powder ones? Why? Cream – improves skins texture and a bit thicker than liquid
  10. If you could do only one thing from the following for the rest of your (makeup) life, which one would it be; contouring, (shimmery) bronzing, (pearly) highlighting? Why? Wellll I have just received the Anastasia Beverly Hills contouring kit and while I haven’t had a chance to use it, I’m obsessed with the highlighter – for now.
  11. Minty breath balls or chewing strips? LOL, chewing strips
  12. Bonus question: How do you plan to develop both as a blogger (beauty explorer) and a person? As a blogger – to share my experiences with others and keep trying out new things! As a person I guess just do what makes me happy
