Benefit #Cheek2Cheek Tag

Benefit Cheek2cheek tag

Anyone that follows my Youtube channel (shameless plug here) will have already seen the video relating to this tag, but I thought I'd pop it up on ye old blog for the whole world to see. I received the Majorette blush as a gift from Benefit and in return I've decided to do the #cheek2cheek tag that's been circulating around the internet for a little while. The blush itself is a serious beaut, and I've been wearing it pretty much every day since it hopped onto my desk. To hear me ramble on a little more about how great it is, check out the full-length video - for a plain and simple tag, keep on readin'!

1. How do you apply Majorette? 

I tend to apply it with my Zoeva Cream Cheek brush or one of my buffing brushes for a little extra coverage. If I want something super-sheer I'll either tap it over the top of my cheeks with my fingers or smudge it in with a Beauty Blender. Boom!

2. What Box O'Powder do you wear Majorette with? 

I'm forever wearing my Hoola bronzer - it goes perfect with just about every makeup look I can come up with. I like to lightly contour my cheek bones and add a touch of Majorette to lift my face that little more.

3. What's your top tip for beautiful cheeks? 

100% make sure your base is perfect before you go in with any colour! If you have any blemishes that aren't properly concealed before hand or any dry patches that you haven't moisturised properly you'll find that no matter what blush you use - low end or high - nothing will sit right!

4. What's your cheekiest nail colour? 

I'm so boring when it comes to nail polishes - how ever one of my favourite bright shades is Sally Hansen's Man-go Team!

5. What's the cheekiest thing you've done? 

I'm forever that person stealing snacks from secret stashes. In fact, I've just now gone through an entire share-bag of Haribo that was originally intended for Haloween Trick or Treaters. Guess I'll have to buy a new bag..

6. Who's the cheekiest person you know? 

I struggled a little with this question - it'd have to be my cats!

7. Who's cheeks would you peak at if you could? 

I've thought about this a little more, and I really think I'd like to check out Daniel Craig's bum - you know, just to see if it's as great as the rest of him. Scientific purposes etc etc.

8. What cheeky movie character do you most like? 

Gollum from Lord of the Rings! 

9. Have you ever rubbed cheeks with a celebrity? 

A few! I actually met Alexa Chung a few years ago and I was so star struck I didn't know what to say. Because I was so silent she thought I was foreign or something! Smooth Steph, smooth.

10. Your favourite cheeky song? (Basically a guilty pleasure)

Absolutely anything by Jamiroquai! I'm so obsessed with Blondie and Bjork though too, but I have no shame in that.

11. Who do you 'Pass the Baton to' (TAG)?

Absolutely everyone and anyone that comes across this tag! Make sure you link me to it so I can see your answers too.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream tag

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dreams tag

Sometimes, nothing beats a good tag video. Where's the video you might ask? It's er, in your dreams (pun intended). I'm leaving for London in just a few hours so thought I'd pop this tag into a blog post instead. I was sent the Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream fragrance a few weeks ago and - whilst it's not my usual go-to scent - it's pretty delicious. Think lychee, blackberry and pear all mixed together with this season's 'must have accessory', coconut water. Just one thing - try not to drink it. Really.

What are you currently day dreaming about?

Anything that involves me doing absolutely nothing - namely a very long trip abroad to a very hot country..

What three items live in your dream wardrobe?

Are three Acne leather jackets a good enough answer? 

Who's your dream celeb look-a-like?

I think a default option would have to be Angelina Jolie, I really need to say why? Although Natasha Poly is a pretty close second. Dat hair tho.

In your eyes, who's currently 'living the dream'?

Obviously just because someone's life seems amazing it doesn't mean it's perfect behind closed doors. But, if we're talking about how things look on the outside I'd say any household cat has a pretty fantastic life. Who could say no to continous naps and never-ending food?

What do you dream of more: love or money?

Luckily I've found love (queue soppy moment) so that just leaves me with money wishes. But when it comes to what's more important, it's definitely l o v e!

Your dream holiday escape?

It's been my lifelong dream to go on a real Safari tour, and then find a lion or tiger and hug them for hours and hours/become a part of their tribe. Failing that..I'm not really sure. Maybe LA? Australia? Somewhere with a big swimming pool?

Who's your dream Youtuber collab?

Without a shadow of a doubt, Essie Button. I'm a complete fan girl and I feel no shame.

Did you childhood dreams ever come true?

I've never really thought about it, but I guess they have in a way! I've never really known what I wanted to be - apart from a brief period when I wanted to become a hairdresser - I've just always wanted to be pretty free and not tied down by a job. Somehow, I've become a 'professional' internet person, which is pretty much every 90s kid's dream.

If one of your dreams could come true right now, what would it be?

Obviously I'd love for everyone in my family to be healthy and financially secure, but for something a little bit selfish I'd love to have my own place all to myself. Having just moved out with Ollie I now know how difficult it can be to save up money for a house, so I would love to suddenly get enough money to have the house of my dreams. Think Pinterest interior boards, but in real life.
