There's so many. Lets start with the wrong foundation colour I spotted an assistant trying to sell the completely wrong colour to a girl in superdrug the other day. Its terrible. Or unblended blush. It is not war stripes blend that shit it! And caked on makeup, need I say more.

Mascara if I only put one makeup item on it is mascara!

I love benefit and Revlon I think they both offer great products that everyone needs. I know people may be shocked I have not picked mac but I feel that is more for professionals not your everyday girl like me!

40.What do you think of Makeup?
I love it for how it makes me feel when I wear it. I don't need it for confidence but theres no feeling quite like a nicely applied face of makeup. Especially if you rock a bright lip. Makeup is an expression of who you are.
