My First Beauty Bloggers Award

Hi beauties,

Hope you all are doing well.

My today's post is very very special. I have been nominated for beauty bloggers award by Minsa Hassan of Fashion Blitz. This is my first ever award in blogging. I am very happy and excited about it.

Let's get to the rules:
* Thank and follow the blog that has nominated you.
* Display the award on your blog.
* Answer 10 questions given by the blogger who nominated you.
* Nominate bloggers for the award and link them.
* Create ten questions for the bloggers that you have nominated.

So first of all I would like to thank Minsa Hassan of Fashion Blitz for nominating me. You are a beautiful girl with a beautiful heart and a sweet friend.

Now coming to the answers of the questions .

1. How many people have you told about your blog in real life?

Honestly just a few people around me know that I have started blogging. In the beginning I told a friend about it and she was like... Blogging..... what is that thing?
So after that I haven't told any one. One reason also for that is girls like and appreciate what I am writing because they really like it and find it interesting to read not just because they are my friends and I have asked them to like and follow my blog.
But with the passage of time people will start knowing because I am planning to give more time to my blog

2. How many foundations do you own?

Well i have tested many brands for foundation uptill now but frankly speaking I don't own much foundations right now. The reason for this is that foundation is my first love in makeup items. Because I love flawless skin, if your skin is looking beautiful you can create a beautiful look with minimal makeup. Every time I purchase a new foundation I try to use it in different weather conditions and by using alone and mixing and matching with other foundations. So if I own too much of them then I won't be doing justice if any one of them is waiting in my stash for its turn to be used. So here are foundations that I own right now.

*Kryolan TV paint stick
*Avon liquid foundation
*Olay (almost finished)
*Lakme absolute face stylist foundation
*Loreal( just a little left)
*Bourjois 123 perfect foundation

3. How much time do you spend doing your make up on daily basis?

Well I don't apply makeup when I am staying at home. On daily basis I only use my moisturiser and black eye pencil on my lower lash line and sometimes along my upper lash line and a lip balm that's all about it. So it takes 2-3 minutes only.
And if going outside , then I get ready in 15-20 minutes maximum. But for special occasions like weddings and parties I take more time to get ready properly.

4. What is your favorite eye shadow color?

Well I am a person who loves both intense smokey eyes and soft and subtle look as well. So there is no specific shade, it all depends on occasion, time and mood. Sometimes black, bronze and copper and sometimes soft and nude shades.

5. What is your favorite makeup brush?

Well I have not tested too many brands of brushes. But these days I am trying RT's core collection set. And I think it's buffing brush is going to be my favorite brush.

6. When you go to a drugstore  what brand you look for first?

There is no specific brand that I am looking for. Other than some of my staple items and their repurchase, I am always looking for better products.

7. What was your first make up item?

As far as I remember my first make up item was peach lipstick. I don't remember the brand now. But it was a very beautiful soft peach color.
I am still obsessed with peach lipsticks and blushes.

8. Do you regularly or have ever self tanned?

Self tanning ..... no not at all. My skin is so sensitive to sun exposure that if I spend only five minutes in direct sunlight then it gets tanned. So there is no question of tanning at all.

9. How do you feel about over drawn lips?

Well over drawn lips are a big No No for me. I personally think that makeup is just done to enhance your natural features, we shall not try to change the shape of our  features.
But yes if some girl has very thin lips then she should try this.
But Alhamdolillah i like the natural shape of my lips.

10. Do you contour on daily basis?

No not on daily basis. I think my face doesnt need much contouring but still i contour a little only when I get ready for special occasions like weddings, parties and where a lot of photography will be done.
Because contouring gives good results in pictures.

So girls that was all about my answers. I hope you enjoyed reading them.
