The Beauty Blogger Tag

If you are fairly new around these parts, you may not know that Harmony Blaze started out as a beauty blog. At the time it was all I felt confident and competent to talk about and over time it has evolved into what you see today...

...However, never fear, my love of cosmetics, skincare products and accessories has not faded which is why I always say that this site is a 'Healthy Living & Lifestyle Blog' with the 'Occasional hint of Beauty & Fashion'. Fairly accurate I think.

So when Sian Reed (The English Everygirl) tagged me in her 'Beauty Blogger Tag' post recently I was excited to take up the challenge and go back to my roots. Here we go;

What are your top 3 make-up staples that you always have to wear? I always make sure that I have my brows done (either palette or pencil, it depends upon my mood), have a flick of kohl eyeliner on if nothing else on the eyes and a flush of blusher. 

What is your favourite drugstore brand? Does The Body Shop count? Their Primer & BB Cream's are amazing! If not I'd probably go for Max Factor. I love the Creme Puff Blushers and their CC Cream.

Smoky eyes or a strong lip? It depends upon the season - in Winter I tend to go more with smoky eyes and nude lips but then in Summer I go more for a plain eye and bright lip. I love both looks!

What is your skincare routine? In a morning I use the Garnier Micellar Water and an Elemis Rehydrating Serum to wake my skin up and then on a night at the minute I'm in love with the OleHenriksen 'The Clean Truth Cleansing Cloths' and use them every night to clear off my makeup and then moisturise with Benefit's 'Triple Performing Facial Emulsion' and 'It's Potent Eye Cream'.

What is your best make-up tip? Never sleep in it - if you're going out, put makeup wipes on your pillow to remind you when you get in. 

What is your favourite facial feature? My eyebrows! This may sound really strange but they were tamed and shaped by 'the eyebrow queen' Nilam Holmes Patel years ago and I've loved them ever since.

What is your favourite lip shade to wear? At the minute it's between a touch of Benebalm in a morning and Illamasqua's Corrupt! Talk about extreme ends of the spectrum.

First make-up item you ever bought? A white eyeshadow from Bourjois, it was the late '90s, forgive me. Please?
