I’m pretty sure this tag has been floating around the interwebs since forever, but I discovered this over at Gypsies & Pixies the other day & thought it’d be fun to do & a fun way for my readers to get to know me…so here it is!
1. Name a beauty regimen that you rarely do.
Oh a number of things! I don’t bother fake tanning (although I might give it a go next summer) and I rarely wear eyeshadow or eyeliner due to oily eyelids/no eye primer/my inability to apply both in a manner which looks polished & suitable for my eye shape. Then again I rarely wear makeup full stop. I need to get my butt to a make-up course...
2. Is washing your makeup brushes something that you do regularly?
Yes! I wash mine after each use or every 2nd use, purely because…see the end of question #1.
3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?
2 seconds. No seriously, chipped polish is one of my beauty pet hates & I can’t stand seeing it on other people, let alone myself. As soon as I get a major chip in my nails, off the polish comes. All you ladies out there walking around with only a scrap of polish on your nails, get the polish remover out & TAKE IT OFF you lazy sods!
4. How long will you put off buying/replacing a beauty product, even if you need it?
Makeup I tend to do without until I have an event coming up that I need stuff for (and even then I tend to just re-purchase foundation); skincare & hair stuff like shampoo & conditoner I’ll ration out until there’s a sale on or I just get sick & tired of being a tight-arse.
5. What is your worst beauty habit?
Being lazy with hair washing. I have the type of hair that requires a wash every 3 days or so & sometimes I really can’t be arsed doing it because my roots can occasionally look oily the next day + I don't want to strip my colour too fast either. Hair washing & styling is something I would gladly outsource often if I had the $ to afford it! (Twice a week blow-drys anyone?) I know I mentioned that I can't stand chipped nail polish, but I must confess I enjoy peeling it off...terrible habit I know, but I can't help it!
6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time?
Most things (if procrastination were an Olympic sport, I'd win a gold medal for Australia lol), but there's only so many times I can look at mess or dishes piling up before I get motivated to tidy up. Same goes with putting off making appointments...I can only tolerate my internal BS to a certain point.
7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready to the last minute?
Hell no! I’m normally the one taking about 1-2 hours to get ready haha. At a push I need 5 minutes if I’m just going to the shops & I’m not wearing makeup, but if it’s a day event or a night out where I’m doing makeup the most I need is about 20-30 minutes, provided I don’t need to do my hair as well....in that case add an extra 30-45 minutes.
8. Can you commit to spending bans?
Probably. Never say never right? I can be good with saving if I need to be.
9. How organised are you makeup and nail polish collections?
Very organised. My small makeup collection is housed in an Ikea organiser & most of my nail polishes are in a stepped holder in both colour AND brand order
(because I’m a Virgo & this is what we do). My un-opened polishes are in a nail polish tower & I’ve also got other nail-related paraphernalia in a cake decorating organiser.
