Get to know me tag

I see a lot of these “get to know me” tags on youtube and I’ve seen a couple on a few of my favourite blogs as well. I answered mostly beauty/makeup related questions for this tag. If you want to get to know me a little bit better, keep reading!

Is your hair curly or straight?
My hair is mostly wavy, the front section is a bit more curly and the back section is a little straighter. I can’t do the “wash and wear” thing because it looks like I’ve curled the front half of my head and then gave up.

Do you dye your hair yourself or go to a salon?
I do both! Sometimes I get it done at a salon because I love being pampered. Other times I DIY it because I’m broke.

Do you wear the same style everyday or change it up?
When I’m at work I always wear some form of ponytail…Otherwise I like to change it up. However…I rarely ever straighten my hair out because I just can’t figure out how to make it look nice when it’s straight. I usually go for waves, curls, top knots, messy buns and braids.

Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to the salon?
I don’t often have my nails painted, but when I do I usually do them myself. Once in a blue moon I splurge and get a shellac mani.

How often do you change your nail polish?
Even though I don’t do my nails often I like to switch up the colours when I do get around to it. Also, I HATE chipped nail polish, so once I see a chip it all comes off. I’d rather my nails be naked then chipped.

What is your go to makeup routine?
On a day to day basis I like to look polished and fresh. I usually apply a BB cream, concealer under my eyes and on any spots, powder on my t-zone, blush, brows and loads of mascara. If I need an extra pick me up (like after a 12 hour night shift) I add some highlighter to the inner corners of my eyes and on the tops of my cheekbones.

What do you do first face or eyes?
If I wear eyeshadow I do my eyebrows first, then I work on my eyes. After I’m satisfied with that I wipe off any fallout from my under eye area and cheeks. Then I work on my foundation and concealer.

How long does it take to put on your makeup?
The routine above takes me about ten minutes. However on my days off when I have time to get ready, I love taking half an hour to do something a little more interesting. When I’m getting ready for something important or if I know I’m going to be photographed I have been known to take up to an hour to apply my makeup…

Do you wear makeup everyday?
I wear makeup most days, probably 4-5 days out of every week. Sometimes I find that putting makeup on reminds me to keep my hands off my face. I tend to wear makeup more often than not.

Will you leave the house without makeup?
It can be difficult to leave the house without makeup on because I can be very self conscious about my acne. But I brave it and get out sans the war paint. I also don’t like to wear makeup on nightshifts or at the gym.

Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I try to just buy what I need, but I’m not usually successful at sticking with this strategy. I tend to impulsively buy things online.

How many high end products do you own?
My makeup collection is a good mix of 50% high end and 50% drugstore.

You can only use 3 products to create an entire look, what are they?
Concealer, shimmery powder blush, mascara.
