20140623-144558-53158903.jpg

Hello everyone ! I just found out that I have been nominated for my first Liebster Award !
Something completely new to me but fun that involves sharing love for other beauty blogs ! Thanks to the lovely ladies Maria and Maria from M&M’s Meeting Point for nominating me !
Please make sure you check out their blog.

But first things first, here are the rules:

(*) You must let your nominees know that they have been nominated and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it.

And here are my answers:

1. How did you become a makeup lover?
I remember that it was at around age 5. I would see all the makeup my mom had in the bathroom and that mesmerized me; so every opportunity that I had I would “pretend” to go the bathroom and use everything I could then wash it off so my mom wouldn’t notice.
But there was a time that I forgot to clean my lips (they were bright red) and my mom asked what I have been doing; I answered that I just had to go to the bathroom…then she just looked at me with a smile.

2. What was your first makeup brand?
Cover Girl

3. Smokey eye or bold lips?
Smokey eye!

4. What is your current foundation?

I would say travelling. I like to go sightseeing with my family!

8. Your favorite music artist/band

9. Fake tan or real tan?
Fake tan because it’s much healthier. (even though I don’t need it I’m already dark enough LOL!)

10. What is your favorite summer scent?
I have several: Daisy by Marc Jacobs, DKNY Be delicious and CK one.
