The Beauty Blogger Tag

Hey bloggers! 

I’ve had a really busy week and didn’t have much time to prepare this Friday’s blog post but I still wanted to put something up so I thought I’d go for something fun and simple – a tag! It's quite a long one but I hope you enjoy and let me know if you do it too so I can check out your answers!

The Questions:

 1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Neither really. It’s kind of wavy/flicky/rubbish. More straight than curly though. I would love naturally curly hair but despite eating all my crusts it has never happened!

2. What is your natural hair colour?
Brown. It was blonde when I was little but as I got older it got darker.

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I dye it myself. I first box dyed it when I was like 15/16 and have ever since. It’s currently a reddish-brown colour. I’ve never dyed it any extreme colour just various shades of brown (ooh how thrilling) but when I was 12 I did get the ends dip-dyed pink. Such a trend-setter…

4. Do you wear the same style every day or do you change it?
Is this still talking about hair or is this clothes now? Hmm…

5. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I just paint my own nails. I’ve never had them done professionally.

6. How often do you change your nail polish?
About once or twice a week. I’m terrible when it comes to maintaining nice nails. I bite my nails and go for days with chipped nails polish. I do like painting my nails but then I get impatient and can never be bothered to wait for it to dry.

7. Do you polish your toes in winter or just in the summer?
Just summer usually. Not that we really get a summer in Scotland anyway… 

8. How long does it take for you to put on your make-up?
When I’m getting ready for work I probably spend like 10 minutes. For more special occasions and night outs and stuff I’ll spend longer. 

9. What do you do first, face or eyes?
I usually wake up late for work so for eyes I only wear mascara. When I’m doing this I’ll do my face first. When I’m actually making more of an effort and wearing eyeshadow and eyeliner, I’ll do that first.

10. Do you collect make-up or just buy what you need when you need it?
I do both really. I do have more make-up than I need so I guess I collect in a way but I don’t buy things I know I won’t use.

11. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Never! I think they’re gorgeous but I can’t do them to save myself.

12. Do you do a full face of make-up every day?
Yeah usually unless I’m not going anywhere.

13. Do you wear make-up when you are home alone or with family?
If I was just staying at home all day then no I wouldn’t bother doing my make-up.

14. Will you leave the house without make-up?
Yeah I could and sometimes do. I prefer not to though. 

15. How many high-end products do you have?
I’m not sure how many exactly. I have a few but I definitely have much more drugstore products than I do high-end.

16. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
For work I decide what to wear the night before cause I pretty much always sleep in so don’t have time for that in the morning. 

17. How often do you change your handbag?
I have a couple of bags that I switch between regularly just depending on what outfit I’m wearing that day.

18. What time do you get up and go to sleep?
I try to get up for work at about half 7 but it’s usually more like 8. Most days I got to sleep at like midnight but sometimes I accidentally stay up till 1 or 2 then hate myself in the morning!

19. Do you work out? How often?
I don’t specifically ‘work-out’ that often although I do exercise. I walk to and from work most days which is about 20 minutes each way. I am going to try to start working-out though as I definitely think it’s a good habit to get in to.

20. Left-handed or right-handed?

21. How tall are you?
I’m not sure exactly but I am pretty tall. About 5 ft. 10 maybe. 

22. Do you speak a foreign language?
I learned French in school for years but I can barely remember any of it. 

23. How many pets do you have?
I have three dogs. Two live at my mum’s house and one lives at my dad’s. 

24. How often are you on Blogger?
I check Blogger pretty much every day although I only post twice a week. 

25. Do you read comments on blogs?
Yeah :) I read every comment posted on my blog. 

26. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
I don’t actually keep like a physical list, just a mental one! 

27. How did you come up with your blog name?
I just randomly thought of it and it seemed appropriate. I’d thought of a few I wanted before this one but they were all taken.

28. What kind of camera do you use for photographs?
At the moment I just use a little digital camera I have. It’s a Nikon Coolpix S3300. It’s an alright camera but I am hoping to buy a better one at some point. 

29. How often do you clean your house?
Not often enough! My room is usually quite messy but I’m not as bad as I used to be. 

30. What is your favourite colour?
Probably purple of blue. Recently I’ve been really liking burgundy too. 

31. Do you swear?
Yeah. I think I swear more than I realise. I’ll just blame it on the fact that I’m Scottish… 

32. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
Well right now it is 00:08 (although I’ll schedule this post for the morning) so I’m just gonna go straight to bed after this. 

Do we have any answers in common?
