The Beauty Blogger Tag

I was tagged by my real life friend, Beth, from Crazy Cat Beauty to do The Beauty Blogger Tag. Beth has recently started her own beauty blog and I'm sure she'd appreciate it if you head over and checked it out. I know she'd like the lovin'. 

1. State that the tag was created by The Beau Bow
2. Tag as many beauty bloggers as you would like
3. Title this post the 'Beauty Blogger Tag'

Okay, now that I've followed all the rules, let's get onto the Tag!

1. Name a beauty routine you barely do
Highlighting. Whilst I highlight my eyes, I rarely highlight my cheekbones or the rest of my face. I feel like I have a small(ish) amount of space between my cheekbones and eyes so highlighting never looks quite right. 

2. Is washing your brushes something that you regularly do? 
I try to wash my face, especially base, brushes almost every weekend. I absolutely hate using brushes that are old and foundationy. My eye brushes are washed every two - three weeks, depending on how many I find myself using.

3. How long do you last with chipped nail varnish? 
Generally, it's only a couple of days - max. I love painting my nails and chipped nail polishes bugs me so much. In saying that though, I just painted my nails after having super chipped nail polish for almost a week. I've just been so lazy! 

4. How often do you put off buying/replacing a beauty item or nail polish, even if you need it? 
Never. In fact, I do the opposite. Generally the products I finish are favourites so I don't want to go without them. Occasionally I'll replace them with a similar product so I can try something else but normally I stick to what I love.

5. What is your worst beauty habit? 
I'm a bit of a hypocrite. I always preach about the importance of a heat protector but I don't always use one. Oops. I'm also probably guilty of over cleansing my face at times. I cleanse my face morning and night, as well as any time I remove make up which can be once or twice a day, depending on what I'm doing. 

6. Name something non-beauty related that you tend to put off all the time. 
Cleaning. Whether it be my bedroom, bathroom or blog room, I just really hate it and I'll do anything I can if it means I don't need to clean!

7. When going out somewhere do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?
I always say that I'll start getting ready about an hour before I have to head out but about an hour before I'm due to leave the house for something (normally a party) I'll have my hair done, outfit chosen and I'll be making a start on my make up, meaning I'm always fully ready soo early. For work I get up an hour before I have to leave the house and it's the perfect amount of time. Just.

8. Can you commit to spending bans? 
I sure can. I can and I have!

9. How organised is your make up and nail polish collection? 
My make up collection is fairly organised, although I've just bought some new storage to try and make it all fit a bit better.. I love knowing where everything in my collection is. In contrast, my nail polish collection is organised chaos. 

10. What is the longest time you have gone without writing a blog post? 
I'm not sure. My blogging was fairly inconsistent when I first started and something when I was studying. I try to have some posts scheduled to upload so even if I don't blog for a week, content is still being uploaded. I've had a bit of time off over the last few weeks though.

    1. She does, it says so on the top left corner of her blog :)

  3. Thanks for the tag! What kind of question is this for a beauty blogger tag though - "How often do you put off buying/replacing a beauty item or nail polish, even if you need it?" Who the hell puts off buying things (unless you're broke or on a shopping ban, but that doesn't count)?!

  4. Defiantly doing this tag. Perfect for us beauty bloggers!! Can't wait to see your response for my tag Sophie!!
