I was tagged by the lovely Sabra Rose to do the 8 questions tag! Thank you soo much again sweetie :)
I've already done the '8 questions tag', but the questions are different every time, so i thought i'd go ahead & do it :) ♥
I also want to say a quick thank you to everyone who follows me as i reached 350 followers the other day! Thank you ladies soo, sooo much - i don't deserve you ;D

1. What's your favorite lipstick or lipgloss?
I'm definitely more of a lipstick person, and i have two lipsticks that i find myself reaching for the most :). They are, Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipstick in "Pink Please" - a more medium-toned, peachy-pink (review here) & Revlon's Matte Lipstick in "Pink Pout" - a warm, light pink color (review here).
2. Do you love fake tan or do you just embrace being pale?
I'm naturally super pale (we're talking NW15) & i've always hated it, i just never did anything about it. But i've recently gotten into self-tan & i'm never going back! Haha :) (A post on my self-tan venture here).
3. Are you a dog or cat person?
I think i'm more of a cat person. One of the main reasons may be that i'm allergic to dogs :/, but i feel like i can relate to cats - as weird as that sounds hahaha. They mainly just sleep all day, stretch, lounge around - exactly what i do ;D. They're also mega adorable of course! I still do adore dogs though :)
4. Do you feel more comfortable in jeans or a skirt?
I've never found the 'perfect' pair of jeans (i'm quite tall, so jeans either run too short, too big around the waist, too tight in the thighs, etc.), so i never really feel too comfortable in them. And with skirts, i always feel really fussy with them, haha, but i think they are more comfortable tbh. I'm still most comfortable in leggings or a dress though :)
5. Do you like matte or glowy skin? Do you prefer to start with a matte base and highlight certain places on your face or do you just like to glow all over?
I like to try & find a happy-medium between the two. I like to start with a matte base & highlight certain places, for sure - especially in the winter. In summer though, i feel like it's easier to get away with more glowy/dewy skin. I have quite oily skin, so either way, i'm always a bit shiny/dewy!
6. What's your favorite fruit?
I used to like strawberries & pineapple the most, but ever since this summer, i've started to like watermelon the best :). So watermelon i think is my fave atm, but i love red grapes & green apples as well :)
7. Who's your style icon and who's your makeup icon?
I can't say i have one specific icon for either, but i do like to draw inspiration from celebrities, bloggers, magazines/ads, etc. Some celebrities whose style i love are: Rachel Zoe, Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen, Whitney Port - anyone with a laid-back, bohemian-chic kind of style :). As for makeup, i mainly just look up to beauty bloggers for inspiration to be honest :) But i think i'll be unoriginal & say the Kardashians celebrity-wise - we all know they look absolutely fab 24/7!
8. How do you feel about tattoos?
Unlike my parents, i'm quite open to tattoos. I think tattoos that have a meaning behind them are brilliant. If you're going to permanently mark something onto your body, it might as well mean something to you, otherwise i think it's just something you'll regret. If i were to ever get one, i think it would be just one word, or a short phrase that holds quite a significance to me in my life. Overall, i think it's a personal choice & should be really thought through before actually getting it done, instead of it just being on a whim - remember, your skin isn't going to be this firm & wrinkle-free forever!
