I was a little bored the other night and while searching the vastness of the internets came across some makeup question tags on various blogs. I decided to have a little fun and answer them for myself. Over the years my appreciation for makeup has grown and I love to use and practise with it every free chance I get.
I pulled these questions from 3 different blogs and kinda mixed them all together and also deleted questions I could not answer, and then added a few of my own.
While reading this just keep in mind that my makeup knowledge is limited to the few drugstore brands and only one other that I have been able to try in all my Dressing. I wish I did, but I do not have the budget to go off and try everything that I would like too. That list is far too long and expensive.
I have added the links at the bottom of the post to where I found these questions. I am not trying to steal anything and want to give credit back to where I found them.
