The Beauty Blogger Tag

I saw this tag on Countess de Blush's blog and thought it was quite a good tag so I decide to do it.

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is naturally wavy so its in between curly and straight but I would say it's more straight than curly.

2. What is your natural hair colour?
I have naturally mousse brown hair but since dying it my hair as gone a darker brown than before.


3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
When I had blonde hair I had it done by a hairdresser but when I dyed it purple and brown I just dyed it myself but I think I much prefer hairdressers because it's less likely to go wrong but it is more expensive.

4. How often do you wash your hair?
I wash my hair every other day or every two days, I know your not supposed to wash it all the time because it can damage your hair.


5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?
I do mostly change it, when I don't have enough time, I will put it in a bun or ponytail or plaits but when I have more time I like to straighten it, so it depends on how much time I have and if I can be bothered to do anything with it.


6. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I mostly do it myself but if it's a special occasion I go to the salon.
7. How often to you change your nail polish?
I wear till it starts to chip a lot but sometimes I don't wear it to give my nails a break so they don't go weak.


8. Do you polish your toes in the winter, too or just in the summer?
I mainly wear it more in summer but sometimes I do wear it in winter but it doesn't bother me if my toes aren't painted.

9. How long does it take to put on your makeup?
If I have more time I take my time and takes me 30/45 minutes but if I'm in a rush I do it in about 10/15 minutes.

10. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
I usually do my face first, if I'm wearing a dark smokey eye I will do my eyes first because of fall out.


11. Do you "collect" makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I do collect makeup I have quite a lot of makeup but with my foundation I buy a couple then buy it when it's starting to run out.

12. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Not very often sometimes when I'm going out at night I might wear them but I prefer just using mascara.


13. Do you do a full face of makeup every day?
If I'm going out ill wear a full face of makeup, if I'm not going anywhere and just staying in I don't wear a full face of makeup because there's no point.


14. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone (or with family)?
When I'm home alone I don't wear makeup, if I'm going out with family somewhere I will wear makeup but if I'm just visiting them I don't always wear makeup but it's a personal decision if you want to wear it or not, it's not up to anyone else.
15. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Depending where I'm going, if I'm visiting family I don't always wear it, if I'm going to college, shopping, restaurant then I will always wear it but I feel more confident when I wear makeup, so that's why I wear it mostly.

16. How many high end products do you have?
I have quite a few mac products and I do like high end products but I can't always afford it I'm a students so I mainly have drugstore/high street products.

17. How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
Once a week.

18. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed?
It's kinda a bit of both I may think about what I might wear the night before but don't pick it out till I'm getting dressed.

19. How often do you change your handbag?
When I have college I have a bigger bag that I use but when I'm going out I have a different bag and I will change that bag whenever I decide to.

20. What time do you get up & go to sleep?
It's been the holidays so Ive been going to bed at 12:30-1:30am and getting up about 9:30-10:00 am but when I go back to college I usually go to bed about 10:30pm and get up at 6:30am.
