What kind of samples do you like to receive when you buy something?
My answer: perfumes in small glass vials, which is great because here, you almost always get one or two of those when you buy something in store. I also like skincare samples, but only when they’re generous. Sadly, that’s rarely the case. Oh, and mascara samples. They’re a great way to try high-end mascaras without spending a lot of money, and they’re great for travelling too.
What parts of your makeup routine will you still do when you’re running late?
My answer: I apply a bit of concealer under the eyes, on my red cheeks and wherever I need a bit of coverage. Then, I apply a cream eyeshadow and mascara on my eyes, a touch of blush on the cheeks, and a swipe of gloss or lipstick on the lips.
Do you use a specific mirror to apply your makeup?
My answer: I do! I use a lighted magnifying mirror that I found a couple of years ago on sale.
Do you change your fragrance with the seasons?
My answer: I tend to wear light and fresh scents in the summer, and rich and heady perfumes the rest of the year. Although, there are some scents that I wear all year round, like Seville A L’Aube by L’Artisan Perfumeur. That smells glorious in any season and weather.
Do you write reviews for beauty products you’ve bought?
My answer: yep, I review everything on here. But, if I didn’t have a blog, I think I’d leave the odd review on Makeup Alley.
Are there any products you love but can’t use because of the scent?
My answer: I Provenzali Olio Di Semi Di Lino (Linseed Oil). It makes my hair so soft and smooth, but I never use it because the scent is strong and awful!
