Best Friend Beauty Tag


I have been best friends with this girl for like 6 years now. Time flies, literally. I thought it would be a great idea to share our favorite beauty products and such.


  1. Do you remember your first makeup item?

Mirasha: I remember being super obsessed with that horrrrrrrrible Lip Smackers lip gloss. It was the closest thing I could get to actual makeup as a teenager because my mom never let me wear it.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: Yes! It wasn’t really anything special but it was a Smashbox lip gloss that changed your lip color to a natural pink. I was OBSESSED!!

  1. Describe your perfect mascara

Mirasha: Anything that can tame these lashes is deemed perfect in my eyes. Lol. The perfect mascara is super lightweight, waterproof and free of clumps.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: Since I blink a lot, one that does not smudge. Oh! And that gives my little lashes length.

  1. What kind of coverage do you prefer from Foundation?

Mirasha: I actually use concealer more than foundation, so I prefer for my foundation to be natural while providing full coverage.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: As someone who has struggled with acne AND has acne prone skin, I prefer full coverage.

  1. Favorite High End Brand?

Mirasha: Marc Jacobs Beauty

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: Tom Ford! The packaging is beautiful!!

  1. What cosmetic brand have you always wanted to try but still haven’t?  

Mirasha: Glossier! They’re super poppin’ right now and I really want to get my hands on one of their products.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee:Tom Ford, ha! Only because I can’t afford it 🙁

  1. Favorite drugstore brand?

Mirasha: NYX, they have some great products set at prices that don’t hurt your pockets.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee:  Neutrogena

  1. Do you wear fake eyelashes?

Mirasha: Currently no, but one of my goals for 2018 is to learn how to apply falsies.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: No, but I want to! Or get them done professionally. I blink a lot!


  1. Is there any kind of makeup you can’t leave the house without?

Mirasha: I usually leave the house with absolutely no makeup at all but if I have the time, I try my best to do my brows

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: Yup! My MAC “Persistence” lipstick. It is the perfect natural color for my skin tone.

  1. What is your most cherished beauty product?

Mirasha: Hands down my FARSÁLI Rose Gold Elixir! I’ve been wanting to try this product for the longest and my bf surprised me with it not too long ago. I literally use it every day.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: It would be either my NARS lipsticks or the Anastasia “Modern Romance” eyeshadow palette.

  1. How often do you shop for makeup?

Mirasha: I’d say once a month

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: Every. Pay. Check.

  1. Do you have a “beauty budget” or do you spend freely?

Mirasha: I typically spend freely. If I see something I like or if there’s a product I’ve been wanting to try, I have no problem spending to get what I want.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: I always have a budget and even a specific item in mind.

  1. What type of product do you buy the most?

Mirasha: Eyeshadow! You can never have too much.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee:  Lipsticks and Foundations!

  1. Do you avoid certain ingredients like paragons and sulfates?

Mirasha: I try my best to avoid both of these chemicals. I’m very conscientious as to what I put in my hair and on my skin, so I tend to go for sulfate and paragon-free products.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: I usually stay away from a huge list my dermatologist gave me. It’s a damn long list too.

  1. Do you have a favorite place to shop for makeup?

Mirasha: Sephora is my go-to. If I don’t go to Sephora, I order directly from the brand’s website.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: Of course, Sephora! Along with Byrdie beauty.

  1. Do you like trying new skincare products or do you stick to a certain routine?

Mirasha: I loooooove trying new skincare products. I’m a huge fan of masks and I’m willing to try anything that will hydrates and replenishes.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee:  I love trying out new things! Face masks, Toners, Makeup removers, etc.

  1. Favorite bath and body brand?

Mirasha: Tree Hut.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee:  Perhaps anything from Bath and Body Works?

  1. Do you like multifunctional products like lip and cheek stains?

Mirasha: Eh, I’m personally not a fan of multifunctional products.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: Yes!!

  1. Are you clumsy when putting on makeup?

Mirasha: Y E S. I still consider myself a novice and I oftentimes make mistakes like making my brows look crazy or applying a crazy amount of contour.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: Only if I have gone makeup free for a week…

  1. Do you ever consider taking makeup classes?

Mirasha: Nah, YouTube gives me great tutorials. I love watching Jackie Aina, Alissa Ashley and Farah Dhukai.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee: Not really, I usually just try to mimic all the looks!

  1. What do you love about makeup?

Mirasha: I love how every brand/product has a story. One of my favorite brands right now is Fenty because I love how the brand embraces inclusiveness. I’m also a sucker for great packaging & marketing, so I tend to go for brands that have aesthetically pleasing packaging.

Matte Lipstick and Coffee:  I love the creativity with it! Along with the confidence it brings in women.
