Beauty Blogger Tag

Nothing better to get you out of a blogging slump than a tag, and once I spotted this over on Charlotte’s blog I thought I’d give it a go.

***

Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is naturally straight, although the shorter I have it, the more wave it has to it, which is great.

Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I do a bit of both. If I can afford it, and if I have the time, I’ll pop to the salon, especially if I fancy a big change. If I need to refresh the colour quickly then I’ll just do it myself.

Do you wear the same style every day, or do you change it?
I’m quite lazy and boring when it comes to my hair, so it’ll either be down – either straight or wavy/curly – or up in a ponytail.

Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I do it myself. I used to get acrylic nails done, but I never really got on with them. Plus, I change my nail polish colour so often that it just makes more sense to do it myself.

How often do you change your nail polish?
At least once a week, if not more. Sometimes, I’ll paint my nails one evening, and the following evening I’ll change it.

Do you polish your toes in the winter or just in the summer?
I mainly just do it in the summer – if my toes aren’t on show, I can’t be bothered to be honest. If I’m wearing peep toe shoes on a night out or something, I’ll literally just paint the toes that are on show – how bad is that?

How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
If I need to get out the door quickly I can usually do it in about half an hour. I love spending more time on my face and using some different products when I’ve got more time though, either for a night out or when I’m just playing around with it.

What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Normally, I’ll do foundation, powder etc. then my brows and eyes, then go back to contour, bronze and blush.

Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I’m definitely a collector for most products when it comes to makeup. I’ve got more eyeshadows and lipsticks than a normal person would need in a lifetime. When it comes to foundation, concealer, and powder though, I just buy what I need when I need it.

How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Hardly ever, only for really special events or nights out when I’m going for a full face of glam. I’m not really a fan of them to be honest.

Do you do a full face of makeup every day?
Every time I do my makeup, it’s a full face.

Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family?
Not really, no. Although sometimes I’ll do my makeup just because I’m bored – I enjoy playing around with products.

Will you leave the house without makeup?
Yeah if I’m just popping out quickly, I’ll go out without makeup on.

How many high-end products do you own?
Quite a few, my collection is slowly growing. I’ve got quite a bit of Bobbi Brown, and then single items from Chanel, Urban Decay etc. And a fair bit of Mac.

Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you’re getting dressed?
I’m not that organised, so I always decide when I’m getting dressed – which can take forever.

How often do you change your handbag?
I have one gorgeous bag I use pretty much every day, and then a larger one I take to work with me.

What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
I normally wake up between 8:30 and 9:30, and go to bed between 10 and 11pm.

How often or when do you work out?
Not as often as I should. If I’m on a health kick, I try to go for a jog every day, but I’m not as consistent as I should be. Before my holiday, I was doing the Couch to 5K, so I need to get back on that.

Left-handed or right?
Right.

How tall are you?
Between 5’1” and 5’2” I think.

Do you speak any foreign languages?
Just a bit of GCSE French – not that I can remember much of it.

How many pets do you have?
None at the moment, but I have had some fish and two hamsters in the past.

How often are you on your blog?
Nowhere near as often as I should. But I’m trying to change that – by getting a few blog posts written in advance so I can start posting consistently. Please bear with me.

Do you read comments posted on blogs?
Yes, every comment on my blog is read, and normally replied to.

Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
No, but I really should!

How did you come up with you blog name?
Quite simply – I write about various aspects of my life, and my name is Lexie, so these are my musings on life.

What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
Mostly my digital camera, the Fujifilm Finepix JZ500, or occasionally my iPhone.

How often do you clean your house?
Up until now, I’ve only had to tidy my own room, which I did as and when the mess became too much. But now I’m home from university, I’m taking on more responsibility at home.

What’s your favourite colour?
Green.

Do you swear?
Yes – not a lot, but when necessary!

What are you doing with the rest of your day?
Probably writing a few more blog posts if possible, and maybe snuggling down with my book and a hot drink later – something I always enjoy.

Hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know me a bit more.

Until next time,

Lexie
