Get To Know Me | Beauty Blogger Tag

Get To Know Me Beauty Blogger Tag Belle-amie UK Beauty Fashion Lifestyle Blog

Hey everyone, I hope you're all had a lovely week! Sorry for the lack of posting recently, it's been so hard to find a spare minute to take some photos and actually write! I thought that for today, I would a do a "get to know me" tag post as they're really fun to do and I for one find them interesting to read. It's always nice to know more about the person behind the blog! I haven't seen loads of people do this tag but if you're up for putting this on your blog as well, I'd love to read your answers!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is very curly, but because it's quite long it does weigh itself down quite a bit so they're quite loose curls. When I had my hair cut really short back when I was about 14, it was so curly that I would have little ringlets! I'm really tempted to have my hair cut quite short again as it gave my hair so much texture and it was a lot easier to work with. What do you guys think, should I stay with long hair or go short?

2. Do you dye your hair yourself or go to a salon?
I've never actually dyed my hair before, I've only ever ombred it and that was using the L'Oreal Wild Ombres home kit. It was really easy to use and did make my hair go a lot lighter, so I would completely recommend it! My hair is way too dark to dye with home kits anyway so I've never seen the point of doing it. I'm really tempted to get some kind of highlights put through my hair though (especially if I get it cut short) so that I can keep it quite tonal because my natural hair colour is rather boring!

3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
I try to change up my hair everyday, especially as I have to have it up for college. My normal hair styles are just down and wavy with a few sections clipped back, a messy bun, a messy pony tail or a fishtail braid - nothing too adventurous!

4. Do you do your own manicures and pedicures or do you go to a salon?
Even thought I'm a beauty student I have never had my nails done in a salon, which I think is quite strange! I just like doing my own nails as I'm not that bad at painting them, plus it's a lot cheaper. I am tempted to have gel nails done in a festive pattern for Christmas though!

5. How often do you change your nail polish?
I don't wear nail polish everyday of the week because I'm not allowed to wear it at college, so I would say I change it once or twice a week, depending if I'm in the mood to paint!

6. Do you paint your toes in the Winter or just in the Summer?
I was actually thinking about this yesterday because I haven't painted my toes in ages! I love wearing red nail polish on my toes in the Winter, makes me feel all Christmasy. I always have my toes painted in the Summer thought because you tend to have your feet more exposed then, unless you like to wear sandals in the Winter...

7. Do you plan your outfit of the day the night before or just decide when getting dressed?
I only ever plan my outfits if I'm going somewhere nice the next day, I've never seen why people would spend their night planning what they're going to wear the next day! I usually go with whatever I'm feeling or if I've bought a new top then I will just wear that.

8. How often do you change of your handbag?
I usually match up my handbag with whatever I'm wearing, so that's how often I would change it! When I go to college I usually just take the same bag because I know everything I need fits into it. I'm currently using my Cath Kidston Day Bag which is in a deep blue colour with a peachy pink floral pattern on - it's so pretty!

9. How long does it take you to put on your makeup?
If I'm in a rush in the morning and want to do a simple look, then it might only take me 15 minutes to do my makeup. If I have time to do it properly, say on a night out, it can take me about 30 to 45 minutes!

10. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
I always do my face makeup first! I know you're meant to do eyes first so that you can tidy away any fall out from your eye shadows, but I can't get into the habit of doing that! I always do: face, eyebrows, eyes, cheeks and then my lips.

11. Do you collect makeup or do you just buy what you need when you need it?
I wouldn't say I actually collect makeup (even though I call it my makeup collection!) because I usually just buy the makeup that I want. I feel that if you actually collect makeup, you can just buy for the sake of buying which is something I very rarely do! Of course I also buy my makeup that I need, like foundation or concealer, when I need it as well.

12. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Not very often if I'm honest! I have such sensitive eyes that I find them far too heavy and uncomfortable to wear! I'd rather just wear more mascara than usual if I want to go for fuller looking lashes. If I could find some lashes that were comfortable and actually stayed glues to my eyes, then I would probably wear them more on nights out!

13. Do you wear a full face of makeup everyday?
Nope! If I'm not going our for the day and I'm just at home, then I'll wear pretty much no makeup. If I'm having a really bad skin day (or week, like I'm having right now!) and I need to pop to the shops, then I'll just wear a little bit of foundation just to make me feel better!

14. Will you leave the house without makeup?
If I'm having a good skin day then I'm more than happy to leave the house with no makeup on. If I'm planning on going out, then I'll usually pop a little bit of makeup on just to give me a confidence boost!

15. How many high end products do you own?
I really do not know the answer to this! Quite a few to be honest because ever since I started blogging I have really gotten into using more high end products. I don't own anything too fancy like Estee Lauder or Chanel, just higher end brands like Urban Decay and Benefit!

16. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
Ahh, my sleeping pattern is all over the place at the moment! Some nights I can go to bed at like 10 and others it won't be until about 1 or 2 in the morning. I do find it quite hard actually getting tired sometimes which is really annoying because it leaves me exhausted the next day! I'm also getting up really early at the moment and can't seem to sleep past 9 - so annoying when I have a day off!

17. How many pets do you have?
If you've read any past tag posts then you might know that I live on a farm! I have a dog and cat plus some chickens and geese, so I have quite a lot of pets haha! I did also have some ducks, turkeys and a few quails which were really cute - they were like chubby sparrows!

18. How often are you on Blogger?
Even though I only post a couple times a week (if that!), I do read my Blogger dashboard pretty much everyday! I like using it to keep up to date with blogs because it's really simple to use. I also schedule a lot of my blog posts, so I do tend to work on certain posts over a few days.

19. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
If this means comments on other people's posts, then yes I do tend do read a few of the comments just to see what other people are saying about the post's topic. If this means my own comments on my posts, then yes! I read every single comment and I do reply to all of your questions - so always check back if you ask me one!

20. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
I get asked this question fair amount, so for anyone who doesn't know, I use the Nikon Coolpix L310 Bridge Camera! It's a really good camera with simple settings yet takes lovely photos! It's quite cheap as well considering how well it works.

I hope you enjoyed this tag! I did shorten it down a little bit as other posts I have seen have around 30 questions to answer, so I picked my favourite 20 out of them! Please do let me know if you do this tag as well - I tag all of you who read this post to answer these questions! If you do answer them then do leave the link in the comments below and I will come a have a nosey at your answers.

I hope you all have a lovely day and I'll speak to you in my next post!
