What My Boyfriend Thinks Makeup Does

I've seen these type of posts floating around for a while and always found them so interesting and funny, so I thought I'd put my own boyfriend to the test and see how much he really knows about makeup. I think he's quite good at it as I talk about make up all the time yet he still gets quite confused. To test him I made him describe and explain a product of makeup and see what his answer is. I typed out his exact phrases and answers as he spoke them, so he didn't get a chance to change his mind, also I think it's funnier seeing him question himself. lets see how much he knows.

Primer - Do you put that on your face first? As a start in makeup, makes it stick better?

Tinted Moisturizer - Ohh, is it like fake tan except over time? But not like fake tan but like foundation that moisturizes your skin?

Blush - It makes you have rosy cheeks.

Highlight - You use it to like highlight your facial features like cheekbones and stuff. 

Concealer - To cover up blemishes and spots and stuff.

Foundation - I don't know how to describe it. Used to make your skin tone brighter, and more suited to you and nicer.

Face Powder - Such an ambiguous name. It's powder for your face. It makes your skin softer and smooth.

Contour Kit - I know contouring is for like making your facial features stand out more like nose, chin cheekbones as well. 

CC Cream - I'm gonna say that it gets rid of pores?

BB Cream - You put a small amount on your brush. It matches your foundation, moisturizes your skin and adds a tint of colour to your face. 

Eye Shadow - You put it on your eyelids. Do you put it under your eyelids too? Probably. You match it to your other make up to make your eyes pop.

Eye Liner - It's like I don't know how to describe, like a black marker slash pen along your water line. Does it make your eyes stand out?

Mascara - You put that on your eyelashes to make them kinda look organised and neat.

Lipstick - You put it on your lips to match the rest of your makeup and to moisturize lips.

I also made him explain what certain brushes are for, just to make things more interesting and awkward. I used the Real Techniques brushes below in order for him to make a guess at. If you wanna see what the brushes really should be used for check here and compare his answers or even your own.

1. It's big. I'm gonna say foundation.
2. Is it bad I wanna say foundation again?
3. I'm gonna say eye shadow, it looks like an eye shadow one.
4. It can be used for putting on eyeliner in desperate times and eye shadow.
5. Literally would probably be eyeliner. 
6. Foundation, it looks like foundation. But one only has BB Cream or something I don't know which one.
7. Is that the BB Cream one? If not it has to be foundation.

Overall I think he did a good job explaining them, I've definitely thought him well, a few of his answers definitely made me laugh though.
Hope you enjoyed this post as it's not something I've done before but it was fun to do. I love reading these posts so I hope you liked it too.

Let me know what you think of his answers and whether you'd put your partner to the test or not!

Life Updates & Chat

Feels like forever since I've sat down and written a post. From one reason to another I haven't had the time or capacity to blog recently and instead of just starting back into the swing of things I thought I'd do a little chatty post to try and get myself back into the blog spirit. Also just to have a little chat as I'm kind of afraid to post a new post after it feels like so long, even though it's only probably been a month. I thought I'd just ramble on and ease myself back into the writing routine, it might not be that interesting but you might be nosy like me so enjoy the insight into my life. Here's a few updates anyway.

  • I started back to University this month and I've been so tired after the days I don't have the energy to blog, also I have a lot of Uni work to do anyway, which means a lot of coffee. Bloggers deserve more credit for the work they do even though their lives are still so busy. I'm loving being back and learning new things but I definitely need to get back into college mode, I'm almost there. I also started a new job a month or two ago so I'm settling into that too. There's so much good change and good things happening so hopefully it keeps up like this.
  • I've actually tried to blog recently and have a few things slightly written but my camera conveniently broke, so I have no access to the photos I've previously taken so it's taking much longer to get things done, and I need to find a new way to upload photos now, bear with me.
  • It was my birthday last week and I had such a lovely time seeing friends and family. I feel so old now too, but I ate a huge amount of cake and that makes getting older much better.
  • I've so much to look forward to with events and concerts coming up and I feel so busy and it's so exciting. I am visiting London next week and I'm super super excited. If anyone has any suggestions to where I should go or whats good to visit please let me know as I want to make the most of it and don't know what to do! 
  • I feel like I've grown so much over the last few months and hope my blog can continue to grow with me and I hope to have new and interesting content up soon, so I hope you stick around. If you want to suggest posts you like seeing that would be helpful too.
Hope you've all been well over the past month or so, what has everyone been up to?  I'd love to hear some good things in your life at the moment!
