Beauty: Beauty Habits Tag!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! Since I’m waiting for the other videos to be uploaded to our YouTube channel, I thought I should do something fun in the meantime and that is another tag post!

Tag: Make Up Habits!

So, as a makeup lover, there are times when you have those habits when it comes to wearing it and putting it on and this tag was started by Danielle Schmidt and Shannon Bidgood tagged Nicki Murphy and I watched her video which had me inspired to do my own! Let’s see what I have to say!

1. How often do you wear a full face of makeup? Hmm! I hardly wear a full face unless I want to experiment, making a beauty video over on the Nerdy Shique Universe YouTube, now I have been wearing more neutral looks for my Customer Service Training classes since I have been doing it for the past two weeks and going back on Monday, so it’s now everyday but if I wasn’t doing the training just once in a while.
2. Is your look more neutral or colorful? Most of the time it’s more neutral because it’s my comfort zone and it looks nice with my eyes. I don’t mind playing with color since I have my Ulta makeup sets and play around with some of the colors in that, also my Unicorn Blood and Midnight Unicorn pallets, heck even my Gwen Stefani pallet. Of course I have used the Naked Heat pallet and had fun with that too. Most of the time it’s neutral.
3. How long does it take for your full makeup to do? Tends to be forty-five minutes to an hour because I have to make sure my eyes aren’t crazy with smudges all over the place. I remembered having brown shadow on my nose by accident and went to WalMart to run errands and people glared at my fiancé and didn’t know why and he saw the smudge on the nose. That is why I have to be extra careful!
4. Do you apply eye foundation before or after eye shadow? Before! I found it easier to do it before my eye shadow since of course fall out and it can be messy depending on the shadow I use. Plus the cleanup with my baby wipes is easier with doing it after shadow.
5. What are your bad makeup habits you can’t stop doing? It’s hard to say! I would say napping with makeup on, I am guilty of doing that but nowadays I make sure I clean it off if I need a cat nap after a long day of something. Also, tugging on the corners of my eyes, mostly my right eye, to apply my crease and lid shades! There are times when my right eye can be the lazy eye while my left is the twitchy one and I am not sure is due to how my eyes aren’t used to being pulled on, even the doctors have hard times putting the eye drops in when I go to my big appointment in South Florida. Putting eye shadow can be challenging time to time and I have to keep my right eye from being so lazy and have to pull it to make it easier to get my transition and crease shades sometimes, heck it’s mostly the lid shade.
6. Do you use beauty influencers’ techniques or your own? It’s mostly my own because as a blind person I can’t see myself in the mirror and knowing where to place a shadow or blush I have to make sure that I get it just right and knowing where to go by feeling until I memorize it by heart becomes easier over time. With brushes, my technique by the way, is to feel the feral and bristles in how wide they are to know which one is which if I have it in my brush collection or in a set I picked up from Amazon or a different company. I do admit I used Molly Perk’s way of doing her eyebrows which I thought it didn’t work out for me but I used it again with my NYX brow pomade yesterday and that is to go from the tail end of your brow to the start of it and it worked out a bit better for the pomade since there are times brows can be a miss or can go on heavy. I will make sure to remember her technique if I’m in a pickle. If you don’t know who Molly is, she is an awesome YouTuber who has my eye condition, Retinitis Pigmentosa, and she went blind in her teens while I went blind in my twenties. I suggest checking her out in how she lives her life as a blind person.
7. What is the one step that takes you the longest to do? You already know and if you have seen my beauty videos and that is the eye! That is why my And That’s Jacob Tutorial video took an hour to do since there was a ton of steps to do but most of the time it is my eye entire eye step! Brows I tend to be quick, face not too bad, eyes almost thirty minutes depending on the day and pallet I’m using! I think the quickest pallets for me have to be the Wet N Wild trios but that can take me twenty minutes.
8. This is a two parter! First is what step you can skip? Brows because my brows are so perfect! They were bushy almost every time and always had to get them waxed but when I have my own tweezers that is when I do my own and I prefer it that way too. People do complement me on my brows and how well they are put together even without the brow gel and pomade, even powder if I used the Ulta sets. Second is what one step you can’t do without is? I would say eye shadow even if it takes me almost an hour to do because I feel naked sometimes if I just do eyeliner!
9. What makeup look is out of your comfort zone? Oh man! Hmmm I would say sometimes the really out there colorful looks! I do try them out time to time if I need to do something like a cosplay look or just wanted to have fun, they can be a bit out there. I do admit when I did my RWBY inspired looks I went a bit out of my comfort zone and even my Digimon character I added pink and silver, so yeah colorful looks are a little bit out there and don’t have to be afraid of them all the time.
10. Do you wear matte, glossy, or cream lipsticks? I wear all three actually! There are times where I switch it up and I tend to carry a gloss in my makeup bag if I want to switch it to that some days or put it on top of whatever matte lipstick I wear while with cream ones I tend to wear either a liquid lip or the MAC Cream Sheens.
11. If you could only wear one shade of lipstick what would it be? I would say either Cream Cup or Ruby Wu from MAC because those two colors fit me a lot.
12. Do you highlight or contour? Yes on both because I started doing my contour recently since I asked Vivi for some pointers and then to do my cheek bones with my bronzer and blend the edges with my blush and then highlight after blush. I tend to use a lot of golden highlights while other times if it was cosplay then I would use Sweet Visions from MAC for FlutterShy for example or the Mosaic looking one from NYX.
13. What is the one step that makes you feel complete? I would say setting spray since I started to use it now. I never thought setting sprays would be such a great completion to makeup until I started really using it. I’m using the Demi Matte one from NYX since my skin is dry and sensitive and it’s working out pretty well.
That is it for this tag post! I had fun doing it since it’s been a bit since the last tag I done and that was the Baby Bat Days one thanks to Vivi. Speaking of which, the person I want to tag is Vivi to do this one since I think it would be a nice idea for her channel.

What is next for Nerdy Shique Universe? We’re starting to put up more of the videos onto our channel from Omni Fandom Expo so stay tuned!
