Procrastinating Beauty Blogger TAG!9:00 AM
Hey everyone! So I was recently browsing my blog feed (are you following mine on Blogvin' yet?) and came across the ever-sweet Emily from Beauty Broadcast who posted a blog tag called the "Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag". Hmm... Procrasting? Me? OF COURSE! ;)
I thought it would be fun to share my answers and definitely would love to see yours too! Lets kick things off with a photo of me applying makeup while sitting in a pile of makeup. Typical. Clean that pile up, lady!
See this super old picture of me sporting my NYX Black Label lipstick? I will shamefully admit that I was not using lipliner. In fact, I rarely ever use lipliner unless it's for a really special occasion where I know my lipstick will have to last forever like prom or a wedding. People have asked me why I don't use it and all I can say is...
...lazy? Hahah! My one exception is when I wear red lipstick and even then I only use it 25% of the time.
2. Is washing your make-up brushes something that you do regularly?
Yes and no. I don't wash every brush frequently since I rotate my millions of brushes instead, but I don't like using dirty brushes for too long since my skin is so breakout-prone. I haaaate washing brushes since it takes so much time! I love Parian Spirit for quick cleaning though, which I mentioned in my Brush Cleaning post! I deep clean all my brushes about once a month.
3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?
I'm actually pretty good about this one. Since I do Manicure Mondays here on the blog, I try to keep my nails well-maintained and change my polish at least 1x per week. It's not high-maintenance so much as a stress reliever to sit down and paint my nails. Bad chips get patched or the color is removed before recording videos especially since people will comment about it. ;)
4. How long will you put off buying/replacing a beauty product, even if you need it?
Hmm, need is a strong word. There seem to be very few things we need in the makeup world after all, so I would say instead that I nearly always have backups or 10 replacements of new products that I need to test out when I run out of something. I feel like I'm never caught up on everything I need to review!
5. What is your worst beauty habit?
Does having chapped lips count? Chapped lips and dry hands are two things that I should take care of more than I do. I am so bad about forgetting hand cream, especially after all those times washing my hands throughout the day.
6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time?
7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready to the last minute?
I dislike having to rush doing my makeup at the last minute so if possible, I like to give myself a leisurely hour to prep. As you can see in my 3 Minute Makeup Challenge, it's possible for me to finish in less than that but who wants to forcibly age themselves daily with that kind of pressure? I can't handle the stress!
8. Can you commit to spending bans?
I feel like spending bans are like diets: They are a constant reminder of what you can't have and keeps you focused on those missing things. Instead, I like to go through periods of being happy with what I've got and using up what I have before I get new ones. I like food and I like new things, but I also like not being wasteful so it keeps me in check.
9. How organized are your make-up and nail polish collections?
Since I don't want things to get too out of hand, I try to stick to keeping all my makeup in that one drawer and being selective in purging my collection every so often. I'm moving apartments soon so I can foresee another huge makeup purge in my near future. ;)
I hope you guys enjoyed this tag! I'd love to see your answers as well so feel free to link your own answers in the comments section below.
