So today post is a bit about get to know me. I have asked my friends, sister, husband and two of my colleagues to tell my weirdest things on beauty. All of us have habits, which might be strange for others, so here is my list according to them. Of course my hubby’s thoughts like you have too much blah-blah is not weird, so it will not be on the list:).
Keeping the paper cover of makeup: well this is just because I love to keep them clear and protect the covering from schratchiness or to break the glass. It is also easier to organize, of course they are a bit bigger, but I do not keep all of them: too big packaging or you can not take them back in place.
Keeping a tiny bit of my perfume: till I do not repurchase a perfume I love to rest a few ml in the bottle to memorizing the smell or smell time-to-time before buying a new one and of corse if there is an occasion match with the smell… Unfortunately my brother tend to use these bottles on Easter for years…
Applying my face cream with a makeup brush: that is only truth for the creams with a jar, just to keep them fresh and clean from bacteria I use a flat foundation brush. Of course it is a good technique to avoid the cream under your nails. Since I am doing this I have less blemishes, so I suggest it to everyone!
I only have expensive makeups: it is half true: so yes I have some expensive like Estee Lauder or Bobbi Brown makeup, but they are not the crazily expensive ones, but I do have some drugstore things as well. I do not like that people in Hungary do not respect the TESTER meaning and open and touch everything as they do not have cover on them and I also hate the light at drugstores, so many time I have purchased the wrong color there and I would rather buy some thing for more expensive,which works or me. Usually products with higher price tag have more pigmentation, less oxydation and better quality. I love to find cheap treasures.
Time-to-time I do swatch them: it is just to do not forget what I have already:)
What are your weirdest or simply strange Beauty habits ? Let’s do a challange: List your 5 and tag my blog.
1 . Do you remember your first makeup item?
I think so... it was a Maybelline Great Lash Mascara, my lashes are blonde and short, so even at my really young age, I was know that they need some deffinition.
2 . Describe your perfect mascara. Have you found one that fits your specifications?
Simple brush, which give maximum volume and length. Color should be blackest black or dark brown. Too Faced: Better Than Sex is nearly perfect. (or just the best CF one which I have ever tired)
3 . What kind of coverage do you prefer from foundation?
Depends on the occasion. I usually use BB or CC cream so light coverage on my day time,which has a high SPF protection. For special days or night I prefer a fuller coverage which used to be Estee Lauder Double Wear and now Charlotte Tilbury .

Even I am going to the little market or I have to take mascara as my lashes are so light, if I am leaving for longer time I need at least a concealer, bronzer, powder and of course mascara.
9 . What is your most cherised beauty product?
Highlighters: I have a few powders with different shades.
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 used to shop a lot: 2-3 items per month now I am more concious and try to enjoy and use up what I already own.
11. Do you have a “beauty budget” or you spend freely?
