Here are 7 facts about me:

ColourPop-Lippie-Stix-3
My biggest weakness with makeup products are lipsticks or any kind of lip product. I just fall for them so easily.

gamepad_clip_art_10286
I have two huge passions in life: Makeup/Beauty and Gaming! The makeup/beauty part is obvious since that’s what my blog is about but most people are surprised about the passion I have for gaming. I could play video games for hours without realizing the time and I would play almost any type of game.

winx club
Part of the reason why I love dressing up as fairy for Halloween is because I grew up watching the Winx Club.

I love and have a very high tolerance for spicy food.

i-love-reading-books-1019244
Despite my lack of time to read, I’m still a book worm. My favorite things to read are Y/A or teen books even though I’m not a teen anymore. I still love reading books from the genre.

color-thesaurus-correct-names-red-shades
My favorite color is red. While pink and purple come to a close second, my favorite will always be red.

i__m_a_night_person_by_playordisplay-d511v83
I live in the night! Yeah that sounded better in my head but it’s true. I’m a night person. I function better at night and I have more energy at night. I’m one of those people that are just super cranky in the morning and needs to wake up at noon for me function properly.

Here are my nominees:

The Liebster Award

liebsteraward

Hello everyone!

Recently, I was nominated by the lovely Miss White’s Makeup Desk for the Liebster Award. She is a makeup obsessed primary school teacher! She’s a very lucky lady. She has the privilege of teaching 22 little darlings. I found her while I was searching through the reader for makeup tags. I got to know her through our obsession for Colourpop! Hey, what can I say? Makeup brings people together!

Anyways, here are the rules:

First, you mention the person who nominated you on your blog and link them in.

Answer the 11 questions that you were asked when nominated.

Nominate 5 – 11 other bloggers (with less than 200 followers) and link them below.

Create 11 questions for them to answer and let them know that you have nominated them!

Here are the questions she asked and my answers:

1. If you won 30 million dollars, what is your plan? (Everyone has a winning money plan right?)

30 million dollars is a lot of money. If I was ever lucky enough to win that much money, I would first find some way to donate back to the community. Then I plan to use some of the money for college. I also want to save some of the money for the future when I decide to settle down and have a family. I also want to save it for the future generation. However, with that kind of money, I mostly want to use it to travel the world and see as much of it as possible. Oh and of course, some shopping!

2. If you had to throw away 5 makeup products right now that you own – what would they be and why?

Can I just cheat on this and say 5 lip products? LOL no but really I have so many lip products, some of them are probably the same color with different brand names. (Yes, I know I have a problem.) Other than that, I would probably throw away my elf concealer. I am very picky about concealers and this just doesn’t work for me. I bought it because others seemed to like it but it doesn’t match my skin tone well and it also feels cakey. I also need to throw/giveaway a bobbi brown cheek/lip pot. There’s nothing bad about it. People love them and so do I. Unfortunately, they break me out like most liquid based blushes. The other thing I would want to throw out is a bellapiere lip liner. I got it from a subscription box and right when I looked at it, I knew it was a miss. It was the same exact color as my lips and the consistency was also very dry.

3. If you could be any movie/TV character and live their life who would it be & why?

Hands down, it has to be Parker from Leverage. I love her and the character she plays. I also love the show. Parker is a highly skilled thief that now uses her skills to help people.

4. What is your favourite name for a girl and a boy?

Boy: Leo
Girl: Alice

5. If you had to live each night as an animal without being tired due to lack of sleep, which animal would you be?

Probably an owl. I just think they’re super cool. Most of them are really pretty too. They also have interesting adaptations for hunting.

6. What was the last lie you told?

Yesterday, I told my boyfriend that I’m going to stop buying makeup for a while. Then I got an email this morning about an eye shadow that was sold out but now back in stock. So I bought it…

7. If you could be any age for a week, what age would you be and why?

I would want to be 17, just because my 17th year was good overall. It was a lucky, fun and eventful year and I would want to relive that even for a week.

8. What is the weirdest/most unexplainable thing that has ever happened to you?

Hmm, this is a tough one but probably deja vu due to my dreams coming true. Sometimes, I would have dreams that would come true which causes me to have deja vu. It’s like I would see a person that I have never seen or met before in my dream then the next day or the day after, I would see them.

9. What is your biggest fear?

SPIDERS! I really really REALLY don’t like spiders! It just frightens me to be in a room with one. If there’s a spider in my room, I will run out the door and stay out of my room and until it’s gone.

10. What was your happiest moment?

Honestly, I’m not really sure. There are many happy moments in my life, I just can’t think of a specific one. It would probably be when I’m travelling, on an adventure or just being with my friends and family and having fun with them.

11. If you could make anyone alive in the world today instantly best friends with you, who would it be and why?

Probably Taylor Swift. I am a huge Taylor Swift fan and I really admire her. I feel like I would learn a lot from her and that she would make a great friend.

Alright here are the lovely people I’m nominating!
