Beauty Blogger Tag!

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Hey everyone! I was tagged by the lovely Happy Sloths to do the Beauty Blogger Tag (thanks!). I hope you enjoy reading a few tidbits about my beauty habits!

I tag everyone reading this to do this if they like!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
It's pin-straight when it's short, but wavy at the ends when it's long.

2. What is your natural hair colour?
Dark blonde.

3. Do you dye your hair at home or at a salon?
I used to always get highlights at the salon, but it's too expensive for me to keep doing it. I dye my hair at home now.

4. Do you wear the same hairstyle everyday or do you change it?
Wash, brush, and go. I'm too lazy to do anything else (except for special events, where I'll try to make an effort.)

5. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
At home. I've only gotten a professional mani/pedi once in my life -- the day before my wedding.

Revlon Chroma Chameleon Rose Gold

6. How often do you change your nail polish?
I can never wear the same shade for longer than a few days at a time, but I sometimes go a week or more before painting them again.

7. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just in the summer?
Summer, though still very rarely. My feet are always a mess. :(

8. How long does it take for you to put on your make-up?
Every day makeup: 5-15 minutes; special events/going out: half hour or more.

9. What do you do first, face or eyes?
I start by moisturizing my face and applying primer, then do the eyes and finish the face and lips.

10. Do you collect make-up or just buy what you need when you need it?
 I think it goes without saying that most bloggers are collectors ;) I'll only buy certain types of products when I need them; e.g. primers, moisturizers, etc.. but nearly everything else I have a nice collection of.

11. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Never! I once tried to wear some cheapo Halloween falsies. It.. didn't go over well.

12. Do you do a full face of make-up every day?
Nope -- I mostly focus on the face and lips for daily wear. I'll sometimes wear a single shadow like Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze.

13. Do you wear make-up when you are home alone or with family?
Noooo. Well, if I'm going to my parents' or siblings' homes, then yes.

14. Will you leave the house without make-up?

Yep. Usually just for a grocery run though.

15. How many high-end products do you have?
A few. Most bought at discount or during GWP deals.

Guerlain Terracotta Mineral Bronzer -- found at Winners for $16

16. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
Depends on where I'm going or what I'll be doing. I like to plan my outfits for special events, but I'll often change something or other at the last minute.

17. How often do you change your handbag?
I've had the same one for over 4 years now. I need a new one!

18. What time do you get up and go to sleep?
Oi... I always try to get to sleep around 10 or 11pm, but that often turns out later and then I sleep in late and it's bad. I'd love to get up around 8 or so every morning!

19. How often or when do you work out?
I always try to work out in the afternoons but I always lose time/forget/lack motivation. I work out by doing Wii Fit and Just Dance.

20. Left-handed or right-handed?

21. How tall are you?
Around 5'8".

22. Do you speak a foreign language?
Francais. Though that doesn't count as foreign in Canada.

23. How many pets do you have?
I sort of have a cat named Tiny. He lives with my parents because my husband's allergic. All my other pets (three rats, cat, dog) died in the last few years. RIP, babies.

Mr. Tiny, looking handsome.

24. How often are you on Blogger?
Everyday, checking stats, comments, writing posts (ok, not as often as everyday for that one).

26. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
I have a mental list that is a km long!

27. What kind of camera do you use for photographs?
My iPhone 4S's camera! I've got my eye on the Canon PowerShot SX260 HS though.

I want you.

28. How often do you clean your house?
I try to tidy up every day or so, but deep cleaning is reserved for those, "OH MY GOSH SOMEONE IS COMING OVER I HAVE TO HAVE EVERYTHING CLEAN IN THREE HOURS" occasions.

20. What is your favourite colour?
Blue, purple, silver.

30. Do you swear?
Yes. Of course. Not on here though. ;)

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
