The Liebster Award!

Hello everyone! So, yesterday the Christmas markets finally opened again. :) I can't tell you how much I missed the flair of the approaching holidays in the streets. My city's high street is decorated beautifully! Well, this might be the only time of the year when it really does look nice. OTL
Anyway, that is not why I wrote this post today. :)

The dearest Gin from nominated me and 10 other lovely bloggers for the Liebster Award!

(ignore my Photoshop skills pls OTL)

Gin is a lovely blogger whose reviews are always very detailed and helpful, I love browsing her blog for new posts. :) No matter what kind of product she reviews, they are always full of information and so well-written. I also love the blue layout she chose for her blog. <3 It fits the Liebster Award perfectly. :)

I feel so honoured to be picked by you! Thank you so much.

The rules are simple.
This award is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers on Bloglovin. Thus, it is a great opportunity for smaller blogs to gain new readers or to connect with other bloggers. :)

If you were nominated by me, I would be so happy if you could give me a follow via Bloglovin or GFC.
After that, you should make a post similar to mine answering my questions and nominating 11 other blogs.

Before I start with my nominations, let me answer Gin's questions first!

Other than make up, what's something else you love to do?
I am really into computer games so I spend most of my spare time on playing League of Legends or Path of Exile. Other than that, I happen to be on tumblr a lot.
Do you prefer cosmetics from where you live currently? If not, where?
Actually, I have to say that I like Korean cosmetics much better than Austrian cosmetics because they seem much more effective than whatever I bought from the local drugstores.
What are your favorite Skincare products?
I am in love with the Etude House Baking Powder cleanser so I guess that is my go to skincare product. Other than that, I love to use BB cream instead of normal foundation.
How many nail polishes do you own? Which is your favorite?
OOoh I stopped counting. :S Also, most of them have probably dried out now so there is probably like 5 nail polishes I regularly use and that I really like. My favourite would be the Catrice 090, Karl says très chic.
Share your favorite toner, serum, or lotion. Why?
Balea drug store citrus toner. It gets the job done and it is really cheap. I don't feel the need to use anything different yet.
Have you even gone through intense breakouts? How did you cope with them?
Yes! I used to break out terrible and even my dermathologist did not know how to solve the issues.. I tired out all kinds of creams and lotions but nothing really helped except for drinking loads of water and green tea.
Are you insecure about any part of your body? 
It used to be my legs but since I started doing leg workouts, I feel much more secure about them. Other than that, I used to be really insecure about my height. (158cm)
What is your absolute favorite food?
Pizza, guilty as charged. OTL I could eat nothing but pizza all month and still be happy. No seriously, Iove it. A life without pizza is a life not worth living. (so much about a healthy diet haha)
What is your opinion on plastic surgery?
If it helps people to be more happy with their body, I can hardly disagree with it. It's everyone's personal choice whether to get one or not. I personally would only get my teeth whithened.
Do you have any home-made remedies? If so, what does it do?
None, really. :( The only remedy I could think of is a cup of hot Earl Grey on cold winter days. <3
How much make up do you wear on an average day?
I usually wear BB cream, eyeliner or eyeshadow, mascara and maybe something on my lips.
