This little tag post comes to you thanks to Sophie at Don’t Stop Buying. And hopefully you will learn a little more about me and love of make up! And sorry for the lack of posts recently (which includes no February empties!), but I shall show you why in a upcoming post 😉
1. When did you begin loving make up?
When I was much younger, I really loved make up. I loved going through my mum’s stash and having a little play, and even had quite a stash of nail polishes myself. In my very early in my teens I went through a phase thinking I was ‘over it’ and even threw out my nail polishes and vowed I would only every use lipgloss, never lipstick! But as I reached the back end of high school I started looking more into what I could actually do with make up. Then I found Youtube and beauty blogs, from there I haven’t really looked back.
2. How do you feel without make up?
While I love wearing make up, being without it doesn’t phase me. I think make up should be there to enhance your features, not hide them, and being comfortable in your own skin (literally!) really helps you appreciate make up when you wear it. We all have bad days with dark circles and breakouts, but those are the days where make up is your best friend 😉
So, for a little Sunday night fun, I thought I would do a little tag post. Giving you some insight into my make up style. Read on!
1. EEK! You’ve got five minutes to do your make up for a date. What’s your minimum?
Base, blush, mascara and lips. Pretty simple 🙂
2. Pick a trend – crazy cat eyeliner, super hot pink blush or feathered false lashes?
Eyeliner for sure. Even if I suck at applying it!
3. If you had to either give up all makeup for two months or give up your skincare for a week, which would you pick?
Skincare, only because I’m lucky enough my skin isn’t terrible. But I’d be keeping away from my waterproof make up!
4. What beauty products are always in your purse?
A ridiculous number of lip products (see below for a recent example) and occasionally a face powder, if I think I’ll want to touch up.
The lovely Sophie from Born to Buy tagged me in this post (and you can check out her post here), so here are my confessions- cue the Usher music…
1. How many hours a week do you spend planning/writing/uploading posts?
It depends on the kind of post I’m writing. Some can take half an hour, while ones that require photos and extra editing can take longer. Also, I tend to work in bursts because I’m easily distracted I work on multiple ideas at the same time.
2. Are you a spender or a saver?
I think I sit somewhere in the middle of the two. I’m quite partial to a impulse buy when I want, but I also know how to put aside money for when I do need it. I wasn’t like this for a long time, but I am learning.
3. When is it easiest for you to write your posts?
As much as I love to write, I can’t force it when I’m not feeling it (even this post has taken a couple of sessions to write). I can type out two or three posts in one sitting and not feel like doing anything for the next week. It’s not a time or place thing for me, I choose to strike while the iron is hot!
Earlier this week, the lovely Peach’s Beauty (go check her out!!) awarded a lovely “tell me about yourself” award. I then was asked to give you some random facts about myself. Well, considering I am a terribly random person, I feel I should be able to do this with ease!
I have a horrible attention span. To go along with my love of shiny objects, I get distracted so easily. But when I find something that piques my interest, I’m good for a few long hours. And here lies the result. After scrolling through the lovely blog Chasing Elixir I came across a post called ‘The ABC of me’ that she posted quite a while ago. Like many others I love random facts and even more about other people! You are sure to find a perfect topic of conversation in a lesser known fact about someone 🙂 So in the spirit of getting to know me a little more; here I go!
A: Age- 22
B: Bed size- Queen. Possibly way too oversized for my tiny bedroom but I enjoy my space when I sleep!
C: Chore you hate- Dishes. The day I own my own dishwasher will be the happiest day of my life. However my dad continues to tell me there already is one (me!). Haha dad, haha.
D: Day- Saturday. This has finally become a work free day for me as many would know in retail as hard to come by. I negotiated my roster upon moving from casual to part time to something that works and I finally enjoy a portion of my weekends! Read More »
