Beauty Tag!

Found here. 
I found this floating around on Tumblr the other day and thought it'd be a interesting read to see people's recommendations for products, and their routines etc. If you want to do this tag please feel free, and leave me a link to yours below so I can read what you've written! 
Beauty Tag
1) How many times a day do you wash your face? I use a cotton wool pad and Good Things Deep Pore Anti-Blemish Cleanser in the morning, and then use a proper scrub/toner in the evening when I'm in the shower. 
2) Skin type? I have quite dry skin, which is annoying. And I haven't found my perfect moisturiser yet, but I'm currently testing Philosophy's Hope In A Jar
3) Current facial wash? I have Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish.
4) Exfoliate? Absolutely, every day to get rid of the dry skin.
5) What brand? St Ives Apricot Scrub
6) What moisturiser do you use? I have MAC's Mineralized Charged Water Gel, Philosophy's Hope In A  Jar and Benefit's Triple Performing Facial Emulsion on the go at the moment!
7) Do you have freckles? I have a few, but mostly they come out in the summer. 
8) Eye Cream? I don't usually use one, but I tried the Benefit skin care eye cream and really liked it. 
9) Do you have acne-prone skin? Not really, I get the odd spot here and there on my chin.
10) Did you ever use ProActive? I have no idea what that is!
11) What foundation do you use? I have an ridiculous mountain of foundation on the go: Estee Lauder Double Wear, MAC Matchmaster, Benefit Hello Flawless, L'Oreal Lumi Magique, YSL Le Teinte Touche Eclat and Maybelline Fit Me
12) Concealer? I have four concealers that I use, Maybelline Fit Me, Collection Lasting Perfection, YSL Touche Eclat and Benefit's Bo-ing.
13) Do you know your undertone color? Nope, and if anyone could tell me how I find out that'd be nice!
14) What do you think of falsies? I love them! Especially for a night out.
15) Are you aware that you should change your mascara every 3 months? I am, but I don't.
16) Sephora or MAC? I've only ever been to one Sephora, and it's not available in the UK so I'm going to have to go with MAC here. Although MAC's one brand, and Sephora is a shop that stocks many brands so I don't really know how you can compare the two here...

21) Face primer? I've got Benefit That Gal on the go at the moment. 
22) Favorite eye shadow? I love MAC eyeshadow, and the UD Naked Palette. 
23) Pencil or liquid liner? Both!
24) How often do you poke your eyes with eyeliner pencil? Umm, it's not top of my priorities!  
25) What do you think of pigment shadows? Good pigment, but too messy. 
26) Do you use mineral makeup? Not at all, it's far too messy!
