I would also recommend checking out her other posts, they’re definitely worth a read! Her blog is one of those I have followed the longest and I never get tired of anything she writes about.

Thank you so much to Michala for tagging me in this. You can read her post about this fun tag by clicking on this link here. It will take you directly to it! I would also recommend checking out her other posts, they’re definitely worth a read! Her blog is one of those I have followed the longest and I never get tired of anything she writes about.

1. Do you remember your first makeup item?
I think it was one of those cheap lip gloss palettes with frosty-ass shades. My favorite was a silver frosted lip gloss. That or lip smacker lip balms if they count.

2. Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
Uh, preferably one that feels like nothing. Lush’s Eyes Right mascara was pretty good for me, I just think it’s very expensive. My eyes are super sensitive so pretty much any mascara makes them itchy, except for that one.

3. What kind of coverage do you prefer from a foundation?
I don’t really care for foundations in general. I prefer like medium coverage BB creams. I don’t like cancelling out everything on my skin. My spots make me who I am. If I do use foundations, it’s a powder foundation with medium coverage.

4. Favourite high end brand?
I’ve never really used anything from a high end brand so I can’t say anything about that.

5. What cosmetics brands have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?
Hmm, probably Soap & Glory? It’s not easily available here in Norway. Hoping I’ll be able to order some from the UK one day. Alternatively try it if and when I move there because of school in a couple of years .

6. Favourite drugstore brand?
I don’t know if I have an absolute favorite brand, I like to find bits and pieces here and there that are cruelty free. I used to think of Maybelline as my favorite brand, but not anymore. I’m sure I’ll find one particular brand to love some day.

7. Do you wear false lashes?
No! I have worn them before but my eyes are too sensitive. I’m also very sensitive to latex, and a lot of glues contains that. Overall a bad thing to put on my eyes.

8. Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?
I can go out completely bare faced without any issues, but I would prefer to at least put on my brows.

9. What is your most cherished beauty product?
Hmm, probably my hair oil. I love having shiny, frizz free hair. Without it, it would basically be a crows nest.

10. How often do you shop for makeup? Do you like to pick up an item here and there, or get lots of goodies at once?
I don’t shop for make up often. I pick up what I run out of, or if I see something new that I have to have, I buy it when I can afford it.

11. Do you have a “beauty budget” or do you spend freely?
I don’t have a budget, I only buy when it’s absolutely necessary. If you asked me a couple of years ago, I would have said I spent my money freely.

12. Do you utilize coupons, reward cards and sales when you shop for cosmetics?
There’s not really a coupon culture here in Norway, but I do use online codes whenever I can find them.

13. What type of product do you buy the most of?
Eyebrow pencils. I think.. That or toners. Or shampoo and conditioners? I’m not really sure. I also buy a lot of lip balms because I tend to misplace them pretty fast.

14. Is there a brand you absolutely can’t stand?
Any brand that uses super perfume-y scents in their products. Yuck.

15. Do you avoid certain ingredients in cosmetics, like parabens or sulfates?
I try to avoid aluminium, some octane thing that Lisa discovered, and other things that are generally harmful for you.

16. Do you have a favourite place to shop for makeup?
I use two Norwegian websites called Vita.no and Blivakker.no, and also the UK site Tambeauty.com (they’re behind Makeup Revolution and similar brands). I don’t buy a lot in person because it’s so expensive here.

17. Do you like trying new skin care products or do you keep a certain routine?
I usually try one new thing at a time so that I will know for sure what it is if it messes up my skin. So I keep a certain routine but I also replace things now and then.

18. Favourite bath and body brand?
The “I love…” branding? Don’t know if they’re cruelty free or not. Used to be OGX but they’re not cruelty free anymore.

19. If you could only buy from one brand, which brand would you choose?
Maybe Makeup Revolution?? They’re super cheap so that would be the wisest choice for my wallet.

20. What brand do you think has the best packaging?
I think Kat Von D’s products have great packaging, I’ve never tried any of her products though!

21. Which celebrity always have great makeup?
Most of them? I mean, most, if not all have make up artists so they always look good.

22. Do you belong to any online makeup communities?
Not really?

23. 5 Favourite beauty gurus:
Does Safiya Nygaard count? She’s not technically a beauty guru but she makes a lot of videos about mixing her make up and whatnot. I also watch RachhLoves. I love her energy and how excited she is about everything.

24. Do you like multi-functional products like lip and cheek stains?
They can be handy, but I never use them. If something is for the lips it usually feels really sticky and weird on the cheeks, I don’t like that!

25. Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
Sometimes. I fuck up the thickness of my liners a lot. Then I usually end up with panda eyes, wipe it off and start over.

26. Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?
I used to, then I ran out and realized I couldn’t  be bothered to buy a new one.

27. How many hair products do you use on a typical day?
When I shower, I use shampoo, conditioner, then a hair oil while it’s still damp. So three. And when I don’t have time to shower I use dry shampoo.

28. What do you apply first, concealer or foundation?
I don’t use concealer, so just foundation. Powder foundation.

29. Would you ever consider taking makeup classes?
Maybe! I mean, I know enough to get me through the day now, but if there was like a costume make up or special fx make up class, I would take it! I don’t really need to know how to do make up professionally, with as little as I usually wear it’s not necessary.

30. What do you love about makeup?
I love that it’s versatile and can be used by anyone who wishes to do so. And that it gives you the chance to “be someone else” for a day, or just a “better” version of yourself. I don’t really believe it makes you better because you’re fine the way you are, but it’s fun to wear.

I tag:

Anyone who wishes to do this one.

Thank you so much to Grace over at Thatfeelinginside for nominating me! Go check out her blog, she’s so lovely ♥


MYSTERY BLOGGER AWARD RULES

  • Put the award logo/image on your blog.
  • List the rules.
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link.
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself and answer the questions you were given.
  • Share a link to your best post(s)
  • Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice.
  • Nominate 10 – 20 people.
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog.

This award was created by Okoto Enigma and it was created for the purpose of bringing bloggers together and allowing them to communicate which I think is really fun and a great idea.


 

 3 things about me

  • I love Autumn, it makes me feel so at peace. I love it when it gets darker, when the leaves fall down and the world just prepares itself for winter. I love cozy sweaters, thick stockings, hot chocolate and anything else related to Autumn.
  • I don’t really give up easily, but I often feel defeated.
  • I can’t stand to talk on the phone. I hate talking to people over voice but not being able to see their reaction to what I say.

Questions from Grace

  • What inspired you to start a blog? The possibility of having a creative outlet. I’ve been reading blogs for years and finally decided I wanted one of my own so that I could share reviews and my thoughts on a variety of subjects.
  • How are you feeling today? I’m feeling okay! Been feeling a bit under the weather lately but it is picking up again. I’m also slightly nervous about a meeting I have to go to about work opportunities tomorrow.
  • What film can you watch over and over without getting bored of it? Howl’s moving castle. It has been my favorite film for so long and I don’t think I will ever get bored of it ever.
  • Someone that you admire and why? I admire all of the people out there fighting for their rights. No one deserves to be oppressed, to have their rights revoked or being treated like a lesser human being.
  • What is your favourite food? Good question! I feel like anything pasta or anything that has to do with potatoes. They are both very versatile food items and you can make a big variety of meals with them. I don’t really have one particular dish that I like the most.

My best post(s)

What goes into this one? The ones that have done well statistically or posts that I personally like the most? I guess I can link the ones that have received the most comments over the past year and a half.

My questions for you

  • What would be the title of your autobiography?
  • Is there an album you feel like totally represents you?
  • Is there a movie franchise (or just a single movie) you would love to be in?
  • If you had the chance to see yourself from someone else’s perspective, would you do it?
  • Have you ever thought about owning an exotic pet?

Versatile Blogger Award #2

Lise —  March 16, 2017 — 5 Comments

versatile_blogger1

Thank you so much to Rei for nominating me for this! The last time I was nominated was in May, which was quite some time ago! I always struggle with these kinds of posts though, because I never find facts about myself to be interesting enough to post! But I will try my best!

Rules :

You have to thank the person who nominated you for this award and provide a link to their blog.

Link the nominees and inform them about their nomination.

Nominate at least 15 bloggers of your choice

Share 7 facts about yourself.

7 facts about me:

  1. I am currently obsessed with ASMR videos! There is just something about them that gives me the greatest tingly feeling and they are so incredibly relaxing! This is my current favorite of the bunch:
  2. I am really introverted and I struggle a lot with social anxiety, so I spend most of my free time outside of work by myself. But sometimes I just force myself to go into town, to visit the mall, just to socialize with people.
  3. I am a very light sleeper! The smallest sound could wake me up, which is why i prefer living away from the city, out in the countryside where it’s more quiet. When i lived in the city, seagulls woke me up at 5 AM every morning and I absolutely hated it!
  4. At the age of 25 and a half, I still have no idea what I want to do in life! I feel like it’s too late to decide and that I should just find a mediocre job to settle in to, but I don’t want to do that at all.
  5. I love reading, drawing, painting and so on, but I always forget to purchase craft supplies so I rarely get to unleash my creativity.
  6. Even if Norwegian is my first language, I always prefer to speak English instead. I don’t know why I am like that but I feel way more comfortable using a different language than my own.
  7. Over the years I have kind of lost my love for gaming a little bit, but I do have these regular cycles where I play a lot, then not so much, then back to playing a lot again. But I did lose the passion for most of my hobbies when my ex and I went separate ways a year ago.
