I'd be really interested to know what your beauty style is, so if you have time please tell me more about what you love and what types of brands/colors you tend to lean towards.

Here is a general list/guideline, but feel free to write whatever you'd like to about your beauty style:

1) What is your beauty style? (Natural, classic, minimalist, dramatic, trendy etc.)

2) Where do you get your beauty inspiration from?

  3. 1) What is your beauty style?
    I think my beauty style is classic, I like a smokey eye everyday, just softening or deepening the colors by the time of day/night and outfit. I rarely contour my cheeks with bronzer but always wear blush and lipstick/lipgloss in colors that offset the eyes. I don't like bright colors on my eyes, I just can't carry it off!!

    2) Where do you get your beauty inspiration from?
    Usually the outfit that I am wearing is a starting point, but besides that blogs (especially yours Lina!!), youtube and magazines.

    3) What beauty product(s) do you have the most of?
    Eyeshadows and blush

    4) What's your favorite/holy grail color for (can be more than one):

    * Eyes: MAC Satin Taupe equivalents, Chanel Magic Night and Cahnel Balck Star
    * Lips: Chanel Santa Barbara aqualumiere
    * Cheeks: MAC Eversun Beauty powder blush
    * Nails: Sephora by O.P.I. in Under my trench coat: its a taupey khakhi with gold shimmer-- very unique and still understated
    * Other: I love Shiseido's The Skincare care line especially the extra gentle facewash and skin softener

    5) Top three favorite brands of the moment.
    Chanel, MAC and Shiseido

    I'd have to say natural. Although I find trying to get that naturally beautiful "I wake up looking like this" look tends to require more makeup!

    3) What beauty product(s) do you have the most of?
    That's hard to say.... Either blush, eyeliner, or lipgloss.

    Eyes: Shimmery taupes, sheeny highlighters, and dark various colored eyeliners. MAC Satin Taupe, Shroom, Naked Lunch, BB Iced Mauve, Heather Mauve, Pewter, and almost every shimmer ink.
    Lips: Variations on rose and tawny shades. Paul & Joe Lipstick #14, Chanel Nude Lipliner, Wild Rose and Prailine Glossimers.
    Cheeks: Chanel Nude, Mocha, Orchid Rose, Rose Bronze JCs, R & R Spank, MAC Beauty Powders, PF Bronze Booster.
    Nails: OPI Lincoln Park After Dark, Skinny Dippin' In Lake Michigan, Dutch Tulips, and pretty much anything from the Russian collection. I also have a slew of Sephora by OPI to try out, Absinthe Makes The Heart looks promising!

  10. 1) What is your beauty style? Hm... I would say that my beauty style is classic, understated and polished. I love colors, so I definitely don't mind looking like I'm wearing makeup, but I usually don't wear dramatic advant garde looks either.

    2) Where do you get your beauty inspiration from? Hm. I don't know actually, I have pretty much developed a style of my own now and just do what I like. I rarely try to recreate specific looks that I've seen... I more try to mix and match colors myself. I do take in a huge amount of editorial images all the time though, and I'm sure that influences my style.

    3) What beauty product(s) do you have the most of? I am pretty sure I have the most eyeshadows... but my lipsticks are quickly catching up hehe.

    4) What's your favorite/holy grail color for (can be more than one):
    Eyes:
    MAC Cocomotion, Shu Uemura Fleur de Source palette, Kat von D Ludwig and Beethoven palettes
    Lips Laura Mercier Stickglosses - I have 6 now!
    Cheeks Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colours
    Nails OPI Merry Midnight and L.A. Colors Dark Purple are my current favorites. =)
    Other? Soapalaya Soaps Green Tea Lip Butter, Korres Jasmine Body Butter & the jojoba oil + olive squalane facial moisturizer that I mix for myself.

    5) Top three favorite brands of the moment. Laura Mercier, Shu Uemura & MAC probably.

  11. 1) I'd have to say NATURAL and CLASSIC (such as warm neutrals, browns, earthy colours) but there are times especially out at night that I'd feel more dramatic and I'd use colours such as greens or blue or purples and red

    2) Anything, actually... from colours I'm in love with, the seasons, supermodels, faces of those beauty posters (such as Giorgio Armani, Lancome, etc), celebrities (both Asians and Westerns), but my first beauty inspiration would have to be my mum, I've watched her does her makeup since I was little (cliche, but true)

    3) At the moment, I'm still new to this so I don't have much, but it would have to be: mascaras, lipglosses and facial toners. Next time I do this survey it could easily be: face masques, brushes and blushes


    4) Favourite/HG colors:
    Eyes: MAC Bare Study with Stila Golightly, Revlon Colorstay in Coffee Bean, Antiqued Gold/Pewter colours, Benefit shadow creams, Stila Kitten, Wheat, Gold in Chanel 52 Ocres Quad

    Lips: Natural or nude pink or light coral pink or peachy

    Cheeks: Naturally blushing/sunkissed look, but not too bronze! No bronzer!
    Loving plummish, dusty/smokey rose, or peachy

    Nails: Muddy Brown/Taupe & Champagne or Dusty Rose/Beige Pink

    Other: I'm still new to this whole makeup collection so I still want to try a lot of things


    5) Top favourite brands.
    This is hard, because I have not tried that many yet to really choose 3, but here are some of the brands I'm very much interested in trying out more:
    Gorgeous Cosmetics, MAC, Missha, Kanebo Coffret D'Or, Stila, Nars, Benefit, Laura Mercier, Guerlain, YSL, Paul & Joe, Jill Stuart, Shu Uemura, Shiseido, Lush...

  12. 1) What is your beauty style? (Natural, classic, minimalist, dramatic, trendy etc.)
    I usually like my make up to subtle enhance my features and mimic attractive effects such as flushed cheeks, bitten lips, suntan etc. Occasionally though i do feel the need for a bit of drama, false eyelashes, or a bright red or fuchsia lip. I do find a groomed eyebrow to be essential! I also prefer lipstick to gloss, tinted moisturiser to foundation and cream eyeshadow to powder. I also try to abide by the Shu philosophy good make up starts with good skin - I hate putting make up on when my skin is congested or not looking its best.

    2) Where do you get your beauty inspiration from?
    Beauty blogs, beauty pages in magazines and movie stars from the 20s, 30s and 40s. I'm also a big fan of 70s beauty -either the more relaxed vibe with the long centre parted hair, tight tshirts and flares and soft, natural make up, or the ultra-glam studio 54 type beauty, laquered lips and nails, luxe hair and maxi gowns ala michelle pfeiffer in scarface.

    3) What beauty product(s) do you have the most of?

    Probably skin care especially day and night creams (always searching for the holy grails!). in terms of make up, definitely nail polishes, even though bizarrely, i rarely seem to use any of them!

    4) What's your favorite/holy grail color for (can be more than one):
    Eyes - Clinique touch tint as a base, Nars Mykonos cream eyeshadow
    Lips - Bloom lipstick in Babe which is a ridiculously pretty winey creamy berry red with a great formulation and Nars pigalle, another creamy really wearable mlbb pink, are current favs.
    Cheeks - Nars mata hari for a pretty, flushed wintry look, and Bobbi Brown bahama brown, a new discovery for a glam shimmery evening look and excellent cheekbone-highlighting properties!
    Nails - all time fav for toes is Chanel Barcelona red - just the right amount of shimmer, and gorgeous warm orangy undertones -perfect christmas pedi. On my nails Ruby and Millie 'Brown' is as it sounds and totally unique, my signature shade. I also love OPI's Can you tapas this, a dark browny red. And chanel's Forbidden, along the same lines, though I'm yet to add it to my collection!

    Other?
    5) Top three favorite brands of the moment.
    Nars is coming out with some beautiful stuff - really want the Sheer Glow foundatoin and Moussin cream eyeshadow, plus one of their Multiples.
    Bobbi Brown - have recently re-discovered BB, loving their range of blushes and eyeshadows, and some lovely looking bronzers and lipglosses too.
    Barry M - trying to include something more affordable, have discovered a few great products from this brand thanks to beauty bloggers including their nail polish, lip paint and the shimmering eye and lip crayon.
