Get To Know Me Tag: Beauty Edition…

22 Dec

Hello lovelies,

You all know how I love doing tags but I know after a while finding out random things about myself isn’t that interesting. Then I came across a load of different beauty related tags, that I will do in dribs and drabs and you are all tagged in them, so if you see one and think, ‘oh, that’s new I’d like to try that one.’ Be my guest and comment so I can read yours too.

This tag is mainly beauty related with a few fashion ones in there too, and the questions to this I found online, and I have slightly edited them to make them more relevant (these are not my questions that I made up in any shape or form.)

get to know me tag

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Very curly, actually more frizzy but basically it’s curls right?
2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I’ve never actually dyed my hair fully before, but I have ombred it twice earlier this year, using L’Oreal wild ombre kit. If I was dying my full head of hair, I would probably save up and then get it done at the salon just because I’ll feel more confident of the result. (I also then have someone to sue if needed πŸ˜‰ )
3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
I tend to do wear the same style of clothes, because I’m scared if I change the way I look to much people will disapprove and I feel more confident in my own style.
4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
Well, my mum is a beautician, so I have my mani/pedi at home, but done by a beautician. But at the moment my mani I have, I did a few days ago myself.
5. How often do you change your nail polish?
Well because of school, I don’t wear nail varnish or just wear a nude pink colour that I won’t change for weeks, only repainting over chips. But in the holidays, I will change it about once a week, or whenever it starts to look all horrible.
6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
As I dance most bare foot doing contemporary, I think it’s dancer etiquette to have your toes painted, even if they are all chipped, it looks a lot nicer than naked toes.
7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
On a school day, I am able to put on my make-up (concealer, foundation, eyeliner with flick, mascara, blusher and lip gloss) in about 15 or so minutes. If I’m feeling awake, I can do it in 10, if I’m tired, it’s more like half an hour. If it’s for a night out or I’m doing eye shadow, it will probably be half an hour at least.
8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
I do my face first, I thought everyone did it this way as otherwise you might catch your eyelashes in foundation or work around eyes shadow, but maybe not? When I do smokey eyes, eye shadow does fall down your face, so I do apply a bit more face make-up but most of the time, it’s face first.
9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
As you saw in my How Much Is My Face Worth post, I am a hoarderΒ I mean ‘collector’, because as you can see I don’t need all those products, I guess I just like choice! Since becoming a ‘blogger’ the more I have brought because I see someone loving a product on a blog I love and I go out and buy it. So yes, I am blaming you guys for how much I have.
10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I have never worn them in my life, they look slightly too fiddly for my liking, and I never really have an occasion to wear them. But I would love to try them out sometime.
11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
It’s bad, I know but yes. The only time I don’t is when I’m ill and off school, because I know I won’t have to answer the door or anything, but if I’m at home I might not bother but if I have to leave the house, I’ll sometimes put on a light face of make-up.
12. Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family?
Yes, with my close family eg my mum, dad and brother I’m cool with wearing no make-up and with my close friends but I am wearing make-up most of the time. My mum is also really into make-up, we go make-up shopping together, she does my nails, we discuss articles in Elle and recommend products to one another, so she doesn’t have a problem with me wearing make-up.
13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Nope, because you never know who you might see.
14. How many high-end products do you have?
Not a thing. I’m a drugstore gal.
15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you’re getting dressed?
Well, on non-uniform days I’ll plan it out so I know I have the clothes I want washed, but just on the day.
16. How often do you change your handbag?
Whenever I can be bothered to buy a new one, or see one I like. Not often at all.
17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
I go to bed between 10pm-ish and wake up at 6:30am on a school day, then on a weekend, I’ll wake up whenever I wake up and go to bed about 11pm.
18. How often or when do you workout?
I have dance at school basically everyday, then I go to dance company from 3:10pm until 5pm and on Friday nights I do ballet for an hour. Dance is the only exercise I do really but at the moment, I am doing nothing!
19. Left handed or right handed?
20. How tall are you?
21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
I speak a little french, as I do it for GCSE, but I’m completely pants at it, so I would never say I could ‘speak’ french.
22. How many pets do you have?
None. 😦
23. How often are you on WordPress?
When not revising, I am on here basically everyday due to having the app on my phone reading blogs, and then occasionally posting on here too.
24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
Of course, I reply to them all, even though there are never a lot, they mean the world to me, and I usually go onto their blog too and if I like what I see I’ll give them a follow.
25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
I keep a mental note to myself.
26. How did you come up with your blog name?
I made it up when I was about 13, and to be quite honest I have no idea!
27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
28. How often do you clean your house?
This made me laugh. Do I need to say anymore?
29. What’s your favorite color?
Pink! But any pastels really.
30. Do you swear?
Now and again.
31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
Watching the rest of the Nativity, and writing some more posts that will be up in the next few days.
See you all soon,
Maisie x
