Beauty blogger tag!

Whilst searching for ideas on what to blog I stumbled across beautyguide101's beauty blogger tag and I found it a good way of introducing myself again into the blogging world, so here goes...

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
It's naturally quite straight but has a mind of it's own and is sometimes wavy

2. What is your natural hair colour?
Dark Blonde

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I go to a salon

4. How often do you wash your hair?
Every other day but sometimes I try to go three days, my hair's really greasy :s

5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?
I live in black leggings but I've recently been loving my Topshop jeans but I change up my style all the time!

6. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?

I've never been for a manicure or pedicure but I have gotten acrylic nails at a salon a few times

7. How often to you change your nail polish?

I tend to pick my nail polish off, whoops! So most of the time every 2 days or so. Although I can't have nail polish on for work so it all depends on my shifts that week

8. Do you polish your toes in the winter, too or just in the summer?

I'm so lazy with toe nail polish, mine tends to last a good month but I do paint my toes in the winter

9. How long does it take to put on your makeup?
Usually around 15-20 minutes but if i'm going out usually around 30-40 minutes

10. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
I've always done face first, well foundation and face concealer then I do eyes then the rest of my face :s

11. Do you "collect" makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?

I only buy products I will use but I do have an excessive amount of makeup haha!

12. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Hardly ever, only if I go out

13. Do you do a full face of makeup every day?

Most of the time yes but, it all just depends what mood i'm in and what i'm going to be doing that day

14. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone (or with family)?

If family are coming round i'll put a bit of mascara on but that's about it

15. Will you leave the house without makeup?

Yeah, I don't have a problem with wearing no makeup but if i'm going out I generally have makeup on

16. How many high end products do you have?
I definatley have more drugstore than high end products but I have a fair few Mac, Urban decay, Bobbi Brown etc products

17. How often do you wash your makeup brushes?

I used to religiously wash them every week but now it's hardly ever :s

If it's a special occasion or a planned day out I generally decide the night before, however on a day to day basis I decide as i'm getting ready

19. How often do you change your handbag?
I have two main handbags that I use on an everyday basis one's black and one's a pastel pink so it completely depends on my outfit

20. What time do you get up & go to sleep?

Not really I have a pretty good memory so usually just keep an eye out in Boots
