What Beauty Product? | TAG

I saw this new tag a couple of weeks ago appear on my blog lovin' feed and I bookmarked it straight away, I've really gotten into doing tags recently, mainly as there have been some really good and creative ones floating around. This tag was created by Amie, whose blog is Belle-Amie Beauty, I really love her blog so do go check it out! It is a simple idea, but a good idea, you pick what products you would use in certain situations.

You're about to head out for a night out with the girls. What lipstick and lip gloss combo do you put on to make yourself feel gorgeous? 
I don't tend to ever wear lip gloss over lipsticks so I'll just pick a lipstick instead. I love wearing MAC's Lipstick in Syrup, I think it really suits me so always makes me feel good. It isn't my usual choice of shade as well, which is light/medium pink, so it is a little out of my comfort zone but I like that, sometimes it is good to step out of your bubble!

You're running late for school/work and need to leave the house in 5 minutes! Which 3 essential makeup products do you apply for a naturally beautiful look?
At the top of my list of products to use would be my concealer, my favourite Collection Lasting Perfection one. I always need to use concealer under my eyes to hide any discolouration! Next I'd reach for mascara, probably my Maybelline Falsies Mascara as it gives me voluminous black lashes and some length quickly and with ease. Finally I think I'd use a tinted lip balm to moisturise my lips and give me a bit of colour, or maybe I'd go for a lipstick instead so I could double it up as a blush?

You're packing for a week away on holiday. What 'all in one' eyeshadow palette do you bring with you?
Definitely my Urban Decay Naked2 Palette! It has all the neutral shades I'd need, I hardly ever wear anything other than browns and neutral shades so I'd have more than enough choice if I brought the Naked2 with me. 

You're heading to the beach on a Summer's day and will be wearing your favourite bikini. What nail polish shade would you be wearing on your fingers and toes to complete the look?
Something bright but not too in your face, maybe Collection's Lasting Gel Colour Nail Polish in Watermelon or Revlon's Brilliant Strength Nail Polish in Provoke. Both last well and are great summer shades that aren't too bold but are also very Summer appropriate.

You're getting ready for a date night to a new restaurant in town. Which perfume do you pick out from your collection to impress him?
I'd pick my favourite perfume, Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy which isn't too overpowering, it has been a favourite of mine for a couple of years now. 

You're spending the weekend away and you only want to pack your beauty basics. What 3 brushes/tools do you bring to do your makeup?
Definitely my eye lash curlers, curling your lashes can make such a difference and I find it makes my eyes look bigger and makes me look more awake. I'd also bring my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush to apply my foundation with, I'm really not a fan of using my fingers to do this! Finally I'd pack my Real Techniques Blusher Brush as I can use this for powder and blusher.

You've just woken up to crazy bed hair and have no time to wash it. What hair products do you use to tame your unruly locks?
Whenever this happens I tend to just tie my hair up so I generally don't reach for any hair products. Sometimes I'll use some dry shampoo though (whatever one my older sister has bought!) to refresh my hair a little.

Your friend wants to expand her makeup collection and asks for your help. What high street product and what high end product do you recommend her to try?
High end product wise I'd either say one of Benefit's Tints or a MAC Lipstick, both are great high end products! For high street I'd definitely recommend the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer or Maybelline's Mascaras.

I tag all my readers to do this tag, a few specific bloggers I tag though are: Bex, Hannah, Lisa and Sarah.
