The 11 questions asked by Sarah;

  1. Which state/country are you from?

I am from England!

  1. Why blog?

I’ve always loved to read beauty blogs and I decided to dip my toe into doing my own by setting up The Beauty Advice Blog. After one post I was hooked! I love the whole process, from choosing the subject matter, to writing to the photography. I love it!

  1. Bronzer – to contour? Or bronze up your face?

I use it to contour mostly, though in summer I got a bit brush happy and used my Nars Laguna as a whole face powder!

  1. Favorite drugstore makeup brand [and product]

Ooh it’s got to be Rimmel for me at the minute, and I’m tied between the Wake Me Up Concealer and the Match Perfection Silky Loose Face Powder.

  1. Favorite high-end makeup brand [and product]

I’m beginning to develop a little crush with Hourglass and although I haven’t (yet) purchased this I’m coveting the Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light.

  1. Favorite cereal? [I love cereal – PB cinnamon toast crunch for the win]

Oh no I’m quite boring with cereal! Oat-a-bix flakes with almond milk are normally my go-too.

  1. Which makeup products will you be using on New Year’s Eve?

As i’m filling this in after NY, I used my Estee Lauder Double Wear and the Nars Crime of Passion Palette.

  1. Who is your makeup icon?

This is a good question! I don’t think I have one, but how about a whole family? The Kardashians always look flawless, like every single one of those sisters! I know they have unlimited makeup supplies (incl. their own range) and a whole host of MUA’s to preen and polish them but wow do they look amazing all the time? I wouldn’t complain if I woke up to see all their beauty products at the end of my bed!

  1. Best movie you have seen recently [if you’ve seen Anchorman 2 – please let me know if it’s worth it!]

Probably the Hunger Games Catching Fire.

  1. Dream job?

Communications for a beauty brand!

  1. What new makeup product do you own and think that everyone who reads this needs to have?

The Nars Crime of Passion palette is amazing.

    1. Thank you for the nomination! How are you finding the Hourglass? It’s at the top of my wish list! There are no stores near me that sell it and i’m always hesitant about online ordering without trying it out first x

  1. I loved reading your answers! I’m from California (SF area), so I’m glad to hear that you want to vacation over here someday. Thanks for the nomination 🙂
