Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag

Oops just noticed a blob of eyeshadow on my Urban Decay Primer Potion.

 
 Melissa from Son & Star tagged me to do this, so thanks Melissa :)

1. Name a beauty regime that you rarely do.
There are a few haha. I only pluck my eyebrows about once a week hence why they're always so bushy. I don't take good care of my nails and in the winter I rarely shave my legs.


2. Is washing your makeup brushes something you do regularly?
I wash my foundation brush everyday and every other brush around once a week.  I find it hard to apply makeup properly with dirty brushes, otherwise I'd rarely clean them.

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?
Not long at all! I tend to paint my nails every night.

4. How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it? (i.e purchasing a new topcoat, or a new foundation etc.)
If I don't have anything similiar in my collection I repurchase it pretty much right away.  Luckily I live within walking distance of two Shoppers and a Sephora so I'm never without.

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
Using heat on my hair.  I just don't think I can avoid it since my hair takes forever to dry and looks messy if I don't curl or straighten it.

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time?
Basically everything haha.  I'm pretty lazy when it comes to house work and stuff.  My boyfriend is a clean freak though and does most of it (he's the best).

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?
Never never ever.  I hate rushing or being rushed.  Getting ready to go out at night is my favourite thing and I like to take my time while listening to music.

Me after shopping in Scotland in 2011.  I went on a shopping ban for 3 months in order to have spending money.
8. Can you commit to spending bans?
Well I'm currently on one and although I haven't technically bought any clothes or makeup for myself I have done 3 makeup swaps and received gifts. I have however bought things I needed like body wash, shampoo, and tights (all mine had rips in them).

9. How organised is your makeup and nail polish collection?
Very organized.  My clothes are an absolutely mess though!

10. What is the longest amount of time you have gone without writing a blog post?
Even though I post everyday I don't write everyday.  I tend to do a bunch of posts in bulk on my days off and schedule them.  So probably like 4 days.

I tag: Anyone who wants to do this tag!

  4. So similar! Honestly my answers would be almost the same! ;) Chipped nail polish is my pet peeve, I don't take care of my nails and I can't live without straighteners! So bad! xx

    1. Yeah when you own a lot of polishes there's no need to leave it on long enough to chip :)

  5. Thanks for doing the tag Christine! My hair is the same as yours. If I don't apply heat- it's a disaster. My husband says I look like a lion when it airdries.
    I would kill to live next to a Sephora! How can you be on a spending ban when you have shopping centers near you?!

    1. Thanks again for tagging me! I'm so jealous of girls who can just leave their hair be. It's dangerous being around so much shopping. I already went to two makeup stores today lol but I didn't buy anything.

  6. LOL I'm a mess all over (makeup, clothes, jewellery). I NEVER shave my legs in the winter, stockings/tights are a girls best friend :P

  7. Fun tag! That picture of you in Scotland could be in a Magazine! I hear you about being surrounded by stores - Within a block I have Sephora, Ulta, Macy's, Target, CVS, and a Walgreen's Golden Door. I think I actually like the act of getting ready TO go out, than going out (I plan for an hour of makeup work). And my boyfriend is the neat freak too, it was the BEST when he used to freelance from home, it was like having a housekeepr :)

    1. Awww thanks Jasmine :) It's dangerous living in the city, too much shopping temptation everywhere. The best parts about going out are the preparation and the junk food afterwards haha. My boyfriend isn't working right now and spends all day cleaning and cooking it's great for me :)

  8. I've stayed in that hotel!! It was great I loved it! I think doing your brows once a week is good enough as I think more than that you can accidently over pluck!

    1. I didn't realise it was a hotel I thought it had something to do with the Scotsman newspaper! Mine grow in so quickly though :(

  9. Ah, this is a great tag! A fun read. I might do it myself soon! Even though I'm makeup-crazy, there are definitely some areas where I'm a major slacker :)
