A Beauty Tag


The lovely Kaye tagged me in the Beauty Tag over on her blog, and so I decided that I would film it for you, but that I would also write it as a blog post just in case watching videos isn’t your thing.

1. Name a beauty routine you barely do.

I never do a pedicure, I always just pretty much leave my feet to do their own thing, though I probably should give them more love because they do a lot of walking.

2. Is washing your makeup brushes something you do regularly?

The answer would be that I’m improving, I use my brushes more often now and so i’ve started washing them fortnightly. I do wipe them down with a makeup wipe every couple of days, but I know it doesn’t really do much for them.

3.How long will you last with chipped nail varnish?

I can last a couple of weeks, I do try to paint my nails weekly but sometimes I’m too busy so i’ll leave them and have fun peeling the when I’m bored.

4.How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish even if you need it. (i.e. top coat, foundation and so on)?

It depends on the product, I ran out of foundation at the beginning of this week and picked a new Rimmel one up on Monday. However I ran out of top coat a couple of months ago and I’ve yet to replace it.

5.What is your worst beauty habit?

It would either be not washing my makeup brushes enough, or not looking after my feet, both very important tasks which need to be done on a regular basis.

6.Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time.

Putting my washing away, I usually end up with a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge pile sat in front of my chest of drawers, and then I’ll end up shoving them all away at once, even though they don’t fit in. I have far too many items of clothing,but I wear them all!

7.When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?

If i’m going out somewhere nice or special then I will take my time getting ready and put aside a few hours, so that I can shower, do my hair, makeup, get dressed, without the need to rush at all. I usually end up being ready early, but that’s handy for making sure that I do have everything I need before I leave.

I usually give myself 45 minutes to get ready in a morning before work, with most of it spent in the bathroom and putting make up on. I tend to leave 10 minutes for doing my hair, getting dressed, making lunch, and running out of the door, I make it every time so I can’t be leaving it too much to the last minute.

8.Can you commit to spending bans?

Nope, I tried one at the beginning of this year and I still spent money every week. I might not have spent as much as I would normally have done but I still spent money so it wasn’t an effective ban.

9. How organised is your makeup and nail polish collections?

I think they’re pretty organised, my nail varnish is all neatly put away in a box so that I can reach in and pick them up to see what colour they are. The makeup I’m using is in my makeup bag, and any i’m not using I put away in a box, simples!

10.What is the longest time you have gone without writing a blog post?

I think it’ll easily be a month or so, sometimes I fall out of love with blogging, or i’m too busy to get the time to type up all they things that i’m doing. I am always around though, even if i’m not posting all that regularly.

I tag Lisa, Kirsty, and Felicity to do the Beauty tag.
