THE LIEBSTER AWARD
























First things first, (I'm the realest) Cute As A Button has had a makeover! I was getting a bit bored of my old design so I decided to change it up a bit and I really like it - what do you think?

Anyways, in the last week I've been tagged twice to do the Liebster Award by Ellie (http://beautybyelliee.blogspot.co.uk/) and Rebecca (http://thattommygirl.blogspot.co.uk/) so thank you ladies! Both have really amazing blogs so make sure you check them out if you haven't already. If you haven't heard of the Leibster Award before, it's a tag of 11 questions designed for smaller bloggers to help grow their audiences. Because I was tagged twice, I took my pick of my favourites from Ellie and Rebecca's questions...

1) You've had a bad day, what do you do to cheer yourself up?
Bundle myself up in a blanket, armed with any kind of junk food, and binge watch as many episodes of Supernatural as it takes to make me feel better.

2) Who are your #WomanCrushWednesday and #ManCrushMonday?
My #WCW will forever be Hayley Williams from Paramore. She is absolutely beautiful and despite being tiny, has a massive voice which I am insanely jealous of. As for #MCM, I have far too many but I'd probably narrow it down to Alex Gaskarth, Brendon Urie and Jensen Ackles because..well, get on Google images and you'll see why.

3) What is your makeup bag must-have?
Everyone is probably sick to death of me mentioning this (here, here and here) but I cannot live without my Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil. I'M SORRY I JUST LOVE IT OK.

4) Are you more of a (sassy) bold eye or a (sassy) bold lip kind of girl?
Sassy eyes all the way! I am very into any kind of eye makeup and will always go for a eyeshadow and liner over a bold lip.

5) When did you start blogging and why?
I started this blog on the 3rd of May last year because I love to read and write and have a massive passion (read: obsession) for makeup. It was Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup that really inspired me to start writing my own blog because I absoluelty adore hers and the way she rights it and, as Anna herself would say, she's a total babe.

6) Best nail varnish brand?
Probably Barry M because they're really affordable but great quality and have a mahoosive range of shades.

7) Hair up or down?
This really depends because I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with my hair. It's very long and thick so half the time I love having it down and soft and swishy but it can also irritate the hell out of me so I stick it up in my trademark messy bun to keep it off my face and hide the fact that it's been too long since its last wash.

8) Summer or Autumn?
As much as I love Summer, I prefer Autumn. I love cosy jumpers and dark nails and boots and the colours of the trees and the fact that it's cold enough to bundle up but not too cold to go anywhere.

9) Where do you want to live?
Cornwall. I go on holiday there nearly every year and it's one of my absolute favourite places to be, I don't think I'd ever be able to get bored of looking out of the window at the sea.

10) Favourite Disney film/princess?
This question excites me because I really love Disney. My favourite film would probably have to be Aladdin but I also love Tangled, Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid but (shock horror) I wasn't really that impressed with Frozen - I do like to belt out the songs occasionally but I thought the film was a bit overrated and just...meh. Soz.

11) What is your favourite shop and why?
It has to be Boots. I go in there to buy one thing and emerge hours later with swatches up both arms and a load of new points on my advantage card.

Phew! Thank you to Ellie and Rebecca for my questions. I tag Chloe (http://www.alittlew0nderland.blogspot.co.uk) Beth (http://www.alittlebitaboutb.blogspot.co.uk/) and anyone else reading this who fancies a go, just say that I tagged you.

Here are your questions...

1) What's the story behind your blog's name?
2) What's the one product you rush out to buy immediately after it runs out?
3) What's your favourite TV show to binge-watch?
4) Lipstick or lipgloss?
5) What's your favourite colour to paint your nails?
6) Who is your ultimate girl crush?
7) If you had £1000 to spend on clothes or makeup, what would you choose?
8) What's your favourite makeup brand?
9) What makeup item is at the top of your wishlist?
10) If you could spend the day with anyone, who would it be?
11) What's the most expensive beauty purchase you've made?

Thanks for reading, Lucy x
